Guys this is my first review on Tripadvisor, although i follow Tripadvisor very closely but never written review before...

four of us went for vacation to Thailand for week and our first destination was Phuket.. we made choice of Artha based on location and rates...

Hotel was very conveniently located near patong beach.. beach and walking street distance is about 15- 20 mins walk.. Mally hotel owner is great person.. we spent about 3 days in Phuket and Mally helped us in everything from showing us best places to visit, helped us in booking our island trips and arranged for transportation etc..

about hotel.. hotel location is good, rooms are clean & specious, with free WIFI and locker facility..Mally's bar at the entrance of hotel is good place to spent couple of hours in night...

Finally rate... guys you cant even imagine... rate was just 600 batt per room (Oct Month).. I truely loved the place and I think it is best place in terms of Value for money.. we all were bachelors but hotel is good for couples as well... Mally is very nice and friendly person...

only thing which you should take care while using local transport to Hotel is please make Cab/Bus driver speak to hotel guys for location.. local people get confuse Artha with hotel called "Arita"... make sure you keep hotel number and Mally's number with you...

net net.. great place, great location, great hospitality.. superb value for money...

This is one of my greatest stay and should be the best hotel in Patong!
The hotel is local between Patong beach which is about 10 to 15mins walk to it, and by walking south, you able to enjoy some great shopping spree as well. Along the way, you get to try and feast on the local delights of many choices!
The room is very spacious. Cleanliness is without a doubt, perfect! You will certainly get to enjoy the best sleep and rest after a long day of fun.
The owner, Mr Mally and his wife are both very helpful and greatly provides assitant and help including arranging my trip to phi phi island by recommending a tour agency which offers a more wonderful price package rather than those in the airport and others which is at least 30 to 40% more expensive.Mr Mally definitely makes your stay here more worth it and more memorizing!
There is also this mini man utd theme bar right below and you can enjoyba cold beer while watching the live soccer matches on a weekend.
Would definitely return to this hotel when I back in Phuket!

There is so much to do in this town you will never get bored. This hotel is alright, it's the hospitality that will keep you there. Mally takes great care of all the guests. It feels comfortable like your at home. I hate staying at big hotels where you are just another guest. Mally got great deals for diving with sea fun divers, snorkeling trips around Phi Phi island, sea kayaking, etc. The bar downstairs has cold beer and good prices. It's hard to get to the room or leave without one. The worst thing about this place was leaving. Then having Mally pester me on facebook to remind me that I'm no longer on vacation. Thanks for the great stay Mally and I can't wait to get back there.

Stayed here for 4 nights. Came with some friends and rented 3 rooms. I can't tell how what a deal this place is! The rooms are very clean and spacious. The hotel itself is nicely located on the main road in Patong, Phuket. It quite close to beach too, barely a 5 minute walk there. Tons of places to eat and drink close by. Also, it's within walking distance to a pretty big and nice mall where you can find just about any cuisine. The hotel owner, Mally, is very cool. He can hook you up with just about anything in Phuket, whether you want to go sightseeing, tour the islands, he can get it arranged. As an added bonus, there's a pretty cool Man U themed bar on the ground floor for whenever you just want to kick back and drink a few beers. At such a great price, I doubt you could find a nicer place or owner to stay at while you're in Phuket. I definitely would recommend this place to anyone coming here. For sure, we will be back to this place!

This hotel is situated almost in the center of Phuket, about 500m from the beach. We especially loved the pub in English style with great beer., which is a part of the hotel. The owner (and his family) is very nice and talkative and is coming from England. We also appreciated the possibility to come late at night (4 a.m.) - unfortunately we did not succeed in choosing a better flight than this (late) one :)

We bought a trip to see Phi Phi islands. The owner suggested us an agency with better price than an offer (already discounted) we received on the road. The rooms were extremely big and clean with AC.

I really recommend this hotel as it is really a great value for money!

I stayed for 4 nights 2 weeks ago and can do nothing but compliment Malcolm on being such a gent. The room was comfortable and spotless and he and his wife tend to go out of their way to accommodate everyone. Well recommended. Will be back again next year.
