“A nice surprise”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

I had hoped to get back in to the sister hotel Patong Hemingways but didnt realise just how busy Patong is at Songkran. Patong Hemingways was full up so the Manager drove us 300 meters to view Hemingways hotel, referred to by the manager as their budget hotel close to the center of Patong. The thought of staying in a budget hotel in Asia was not a happy thought. We need not have woried, the place was cosy, clean and well run by very nice and helpful staff. The rooms were tastefully decorated and they have the besy showers in town. There is no pool at this hotel but that is the only downer, only 3 minutes walk to our usual hotel, Patong Hemingways on Soi San Sabai, we were very happy to be invited to use the pool facilities there. Breakfast in the restaurant on the ground floor was very good and we only paid 150baht for it! This may be Hemingways budget hotel but apart from the price, you would not think so. Each and every staff member we encountered displayed a 'can do will do' attitude sometimes missing in the 3 star range of hotels. In all, we like the Hemingways hotels in Patong and will return in July. I hope the staff get to see our review, they deserve a mention.

Dear Ashpan,
How nice of you to give the hotel such a lovely review. Yes Songkran is Thailand's most popular festival. So sorry that you did not get to stay at Patong Hemingway's but as you say we are only minutes apart. Whilst we do not like to be thought off as a budget hotel as we provide many of the amenities sometimes not even found in a four star hotel. Thank you for your comment on our staff, we often us the reviews both good and bad to motivate them. They were so happy to see your comments. We look forward to next stay with us.
Regards
Victor

Dear 735martin from Dublin.
Thank you for your review. The management and staff were delighted to see the title of your review "excellent warm friendly. This is exactly what we are trying to achieve in our hotel,. To make our guests enjoy their stay with us. The management understand that guests who feel welcome and become part of our family during their stay are much more likely to return and stay with us again. Its a great motivation tool in the hospitality industry that when guests are happy they will take the time to write a review. All reviews posted are shown to the staff and any problems they may have arisen are discussed. needless to say they were estactic over your review.
Thanks
Regards
Victor

A new excellent hotel with a great central location on Soi Sansabai which is opposite the main entertainment area on Bangla road. Well furnished rooms & a great roof top pool & bar. Competitively priced with friendly & well trained staff.

Dear Paul M.
Thank you for your excellent review. It was lovely to see that you named us as an excellent hotel. So happy that you stayed with us. But to be fair I must point out to potential guests reading this that the roof top pool you refer to is at our sister hotel Patong Hemingway's, which guests of Hemingway's hotel are invited to use. Your comment regarding well trained staff was much appreciated by our HR manager as well as the staff.
Thank you again for your review.
Regards
Victor

Dear TripAdviser member,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review. Your comments are understood. The hotel's location is actually very good if you do not want to be in the centre of the night life of the party town and enjoy the peace and quiet.. But yes we are in walking distance of all the main attractions which saves money on taxi's etc. But a real big thank you for your comment on that the staff are friendly and always smile. we hope you will stay with us again.
Regards
Victor

Hemingways has an enclave feel. Hard to believe how just jogging a half block off the main street quiets things down. Hard to do better in central Patong Beach.

The attached restaurant is fantastic, free breakfast is of surprisingly high quality for a free breakfast, room service is prompt and extremely well priced ($3 US for Pad Thai to your door).

There is a family mart around the corner (that sells beer and has an ATM) for any incidentals. The Wifi is fast and free. The staff was great and smiled constantly.

Epitomizes Thailand... you get a lot for a few USD.

Dear (17p3 from California,
Nice review and thank you for it. Many guests love our location only a few blocks away from the hustle and bustle of the center of Patong, but located in a lovely quiet area. Yes the breakfasts are great I often (too often now putting on some weight) enjoy the full breakfast. Our menu prices are very reasonable a fact which often surprise many of our guests as are our bar prices. Though like you say there is a family mart only meters away along with ATM's.
Thanks

Having initially had a mix up over the booking ( my own fault) as Hemingways has 2 Hotels and I'd booked the one without pool, manager Victor soon sorted out the problem. He took us to the other hotel and showed us the lovely room clean spacious and with a lovely 4 poster bed . We enjoyed the stay and especially the roof top pool. Nothing was a bother to the friendly smiling staff.
Being a regular visitor to both uk and Thai hotels I have to say that it wouldn't harm alot the uk staff to attend the same training school as the Thai hotel staff! No sour faces or temperamental attitudes in this hotel just happy smiling and willing to please well trained staff.
