“Lovely hotel in the heart of Phuket”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Loved this hotel in the heart of phuket. The staff are so warm and friendly the whole experience was wonderful. The restaurant throws a huge banquet BBQ with guests invited from the hotel. Although having to sit through a 90 minute presentation drags it down a little

From the get go, Bob and his wife Kath were tremendous help, as first time travellers to Phuket I was unsure if booking a private rental was the way to go, as we read many horror stories about scams etc, but this really proved to be the exact opposite. Bob was very helpful and alleviated all concerns that we had booking a private rental, he gave us a great price as well. Bob kept us updated with everything, he emailed me a travel coupon and was very flexible with the method of payment. He followed up the week prior to us leaving with a list of tips, where to go shopping where to exchange money etc. he went above and beyond and I was very thankful and delighted he was so pleasant to deal with. Upon arrival, the room was just as we expected from the photos, but looked way bigger and better in real life, it was very spacious and modern and had a very Las Vegas feel to it. It was clean comfortable and everything was in working order. The room was serviced every day with fresh towles and bed sheets (muchely needed after a night of partying) the mini bar was restocked and rubbish removed. The staff were very pleasant and friendly by the end of the trip we had made friends with a lot of them. We used the room service a couple of times and ate in the Climax restaurant I would recommend their Tuna Tartar and their calamari rings, they also had a happy hour every night from 5pm-7pm serving really refreshing cocktails, we would sit by the pool and have a cocktail relax before a night out. The hotel location was perfect it was within walking distance of everything we needed, we only caught a tuk tuk once and a taxi once and that was to Kata Beach and to the airport, you can pretty much walk anywhere u need from the apartment, Shopping centre, beach, night club precinct, boxing stadium etc etc. As we were two females travelling alone this was very convenient staying here as it was literally 2 mins walk from the popular night club seduction and gossip and 10 seconds from tiger bar. When we left the hotel staff were kind enough to bring down all our luggage and had a lounge area that played a movie and had air conditioning where we chilled out for a few hours till we caught our taxi to their airport. The hotel has free wifi in all areas, including the pool area which was a bonus for us. All in all it was a great trip and if I was to visit Phuket again I would def stay in apartment 213 Absolute Bangla Suites.

Right in the middle of Bangla road tucked down a little lane way are these great little apartments/suites.
This is an ideal place if ya plan on spending most of nights in the pub/club strip.

The shopping is right on ya door stop with the main shopping center on the corner 50mtrs up the road and a Heap of stalls and market shops surrounding the suites and Patong main beach is 50mtrs down on the other corner.

The room was cleaned daily and the suites definitely have a more of an apartment feel rather than a hotel feel.

The pools on the roof which was nice not so big and the roof top bar had a great roof top bar feel to it.

The wifi dropped in and out a bit but i think thats bali in general but it was pretty good, the staff were ok not the friendliest but each to there own.

Room Tip: Level 2 was where we stayed in the corner right hand side

located just off Bangla road this hotel is very close to the clubs and night life and a short walk to the beach( 300mtr) can be a very busy area at night, suits party crowd more than family's or couples, having a kitchen was handy but eating out is so cheap in Phuket you will not save much by shopping in the supermarkets, for most people a room with a balcony or veranda and in a quieter spot would serve you better, the lift was broken for most of our stay buy I assume this will be repaired

Room Tip: ask for away from the front of the hotel

We have had many issues with the lift and the servicing company that has visited us several times to permanently cure the problems it encounters. Hopefully this time it will have succeeded.

Yes it's true we are very centrally located which had its advantages as well as its disadvantages.

We recently stayed in room 213. A large bright and sunny corner room. The room was cleaned daily,
along with a full set of clean bedroom and bathroom linen. The cleaning staff were very friendly
and helpful nothing was to much trouble.
Breakfast and meals at the Roof top pool restaurant were made to order, very fresh and tasty food, served by extremely friendly staff.
Thank you to all the staff at Absolute, special thanks to Jet the hotel porter, who made our stay most enjoyable.
We will back again and request room 213.

We stayed at Bangla Suits for three nights. Wow it was amazing. It really is a 5 star. The room was beautifully furnished and very modern. The bed and pillows were amazing. Slept so good that I didn’t hear any noise. Loved the Jacuzzi in our room. The kitchen had all modern appliances and was clean and neat. There were many TV channels to choose and free internet. The staff are all very friendly, helpful and courteous. Its location is in the heart of all the night life. Close to all the shops, restaurants and beach. The pool and restaurant are amazing and have an awesome view. This is the perfect place to stay at if you are going to Patong wish I had stayed longer. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone who is visiting Patong. Best stay ever.

Room Tip: all rooms are great

We stayed seven nights here and thoroughly enjoyed the proximity to the beach by day and Bangla road by night. Our room was spacious and we made use of the kitchen as it has a full sized fridge were we were able to store snacks, drinks and fresh fruit. There's not a great deal of breakfast options around this area so to be able to prepare our own light breakfast each day was great.
The rooms are very modern with flat screen TV and comfy lounge. The bed was comfortable too.
The bathroom faced the street and housed a large walk in shower and massive spa bath. We did try out the spa but the only negative was that it took a while to fill.
I realise some people reviewing this hotel have complained about the noise - yet we were facing Bangla Road and on the ground floor. The large sliding doors to the bathroom shuts out the noise - so use them at night time.
We were happy to be on the ground floor when we checked it as the lift was out of action for a couple of days as was the rooftop pool. We didn't eat at the restaurant as we were spoilt for choice with all the nightlife, markets and restaurants close by. We did have a cocktail there and although pleasant, they weren't anything to write home about - but it's hard to find a good cocktail in Phuket.
We found the staff very pleasant and helpful and they were kind enough to let us use the beach towels for our last day there even though we were checking out. Plus they stored our bags for our return to book into the next hotel (we would have stayed there longer but they were fully booked).
We got some good local knowledge from one of their staff members, Stephan an ex-pat from the UK and he answered a lot of our quirky and curious questions.
Overall I would highly recommend this really contemporary hotel to those of you who like us, aren't traveling with children and want to explore Phuket by day and by night. There are some very interesting bars of all shapes and sizes and they're great to pull up and bar stool and order a bucket. There's even a no name bar in the alley way to the hotel. At times they can get quite noisy but are friendly if not a little crazy (you have been warned).

Room Tip: Use the sliding door to keep out the noise
