Stayed at the Andakira Hotel for 5 nights. The previous reviews are correct, but it seems like service is getting a little better. At least from the hotel management. When I arrived, I was informed that they were having plumbing problems, so they asked me if they could move me to a different hotel for the night. I was concerned that it wouldn't be a very nice hotel, but to my surprise they put me up in the Patong Paragon hotel across the street from Patong Beach. It was a nice stay there. The Andakira picked us up at the specified time to take us back to our hotel.
The Andakira Hotel itself is okay, but not quite a 4 star hotel. The ceramic tile, instead of wood, and the lack of decor in the lobby don't quite make it 4 star. Nevertheless, what you get for the price, it is pretty good.
There was no water pressure for the cold water, and the sink only had a cold water line. This could have been a result of the plumbing issue. There's an in-room safe, which is nice, but it's rather small. Couldn't get my netbook through the opening. Other than that, the room was comfortable.
The breakfast was pretty good, though not as good as the Patong Paragon, and they provide 2 computers in the lobby for internet access. There's also free wireless access in the room. It was convenient to the shopping mall, and not far from the beach.
I had book 2 nights at the Burasari Hotel in case the Andakira Hotel didn't work out. The Burasari's Classic room was $25 more a night. When I went to check out a Classic (meaning old wing) room at the Burasari, it was worse than the Andakira, so I stayed put.
