“Perfect location in busy Patong”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

I loved the pool that is right on the beach road. I had some good times at this pool and its location is perfect. The hotel is literally on the beach, you don't get closer! The rooms are very comfortable and clean. The TV is nice with a variety of channels. I love that there was a family mart and a 7 eleven store just next to the hotel. This helps a lot when money is running low :)
No breakfast is provided and the Wifi needed to be reset a few times, but otherwise it was fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: No lift, so if you cant climb stairs get a low level room

I booked a superior room that was advertised as having a partial sea view and a bath. On check in I found that it had no bath and no partial sea view, just a view of the building next door. But it was their absolute indifference when I raised this with the receptionist that really sickened me. I showed her quite clearly that they advertised this room with a bath, (and a sea- view) which is what I specifically wanted as I have a bad back. She said to take it up with booking.com, which is a great help when you just have travelled 14 hours through the night and arrived straight at their hotel in the heat of the day. I caved in and stayed one night, as I couldnt be bothered trying to find something at short notice in the heat after a long flight.

If I could give it zero stars, I would. Its the most blatant case of false advertising I have ever experience through booking.com, I sure hope enough other complaints result in it getting removed off their website and any other booking site. Its just a dishonest place that doesnt deserve to stay in business.

Room Tip: my tip. avoid it like the plague, or else only pay on arrival, after you have seen and agreed to the...

Awesome location. I expected it to be noisy being across the road from the beach but I had a very peaceful sleep. This end of the beach, there is not much tuk tuk traffic so the sound of the ocean is quite calming. I have stayed in Patong beach previously in much bigger resorts but I find this accomodation to be an ideal place to enjoy all the great things the area is known for and at the same time avoiding the noise it sometimes come with. I will stay here again the next time I'm in Phuket.

Room Tip: if you are not too fit & have heavy luggage, make sure you take advantage of the porter service...

This is a very good priced hotel for sea view room with bath tub. We had a great time at Ocean front room for 2 nights for our stay in Patong. Our room was at second floor, the views were a bit disturbed by electric cables . It would have been better if we had higher floor. Hotel reception is at next door The Front Apartments, which is from the same owner.
Hotel is located near the end of Patong beach but the beach is right in front, just a few doors away to the massage, pubs, restaurants and beach activity center.20-30 minutes walk to Bangala street and other shopping places.
During our stay, Wifi at hotel was spoilt but we managed to use wifi from next door, The Front Apartments. Some said there is only one socket at the bathroom but there is two more, one each under side tables, just FYI.
We were looking for top floor from the photo but understand it is no longer there and they have changed into additional rooms.
On our return, to airport which was around 8pm, taxis were not available and very expensive, so the receptionist arranged hotel electrician to drive their boss’s car and sent us to the airport. Great service goes extra mile. Of course, i will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The hotel does not have a lift and every floor has to take stairs, so if you have problem climbing s...

Firstly this hotel is modern clean and in a quiet part of patong which is all very good, however when trying to sleep everytime somebody goes into their room in the same corridor as you the door makes a horrendous bang! All they need to do is put some soft close hinges on the door and I would of given it a 5! Also there is no loft luckily we were only on floor 2 but feel sorry for the people who were higher up!

At the end of Patong Beach, this hotel is a great find! Super affordable, and incredible views! The balcony is really spacious as well, we had our breakfast overlooking the waves for a week straight. Everything was clean and comfortable, and really hospitable staff. Would definitely stay here again.
