Have been to Phuket a few times over the past 3 years and have been wanting to try to stay in The Front Hotel. Booked it this time and this is definitely a super nice view hotel. Apart from having no lift, and yes.... no lifts at all, the hotel room is very cosy.

We were given a room on the 4th floor the 1st day and well, having to climb up 5 flight of stairs isn't very pleasant and I've requested for a room with balcony but wasn't given one. Receptionist explained that it was due to the hotel being fully-booked and she was willing to change our room 2 days later, which they eventually did. Shifted to the 1st level and it was definitely perfect. After drawing the curtains, the room faces the pool and just across the road, there is the beach.

Hotel doesn't have room service but there is a lovely Italian Restaurant just beside it and the restaurant is a definite MUST-HAVE in all my stays there. 7-11 and Family Mart is just next to the hotel and apart from that, there is massage and other restaurants.

Walking distance to Patong, which is approximately 10mins to get to the heart of Patong where all the bars are.

The stay was definitely pleasant and the room-keeping is really superb. Would stay here again if I am not considering changing the area.

Room Tip: Ask for a low level with balcony. Do not consider this hotel if there is any elderly but you can con...

Have stayed at The Front numerous times over the years on trips to Patong...

The place is modern inside with nice cement finishes and roomy spaces in the rooms, the pool out the front is quiet warm but is a sensational spot to watch a sunset and drink some beers.

It is a hop skip and a jump to the beach with Family Marts (Convenience Stores) at your door step to collect all your essentials, with a fantastic roof top terrace this place is great if you are on a budget.

The staff are relaxed and happy to assist with organising laundry at the local prices rather then the ludicrous other Hotel prices of around 50THB per kilo.

This place is definitely not miss world, but a great value hotel in good location.

Directly across the road is Moo's Scooter, Tuk Tuk and Hire Car service, ask for him out the front for an honest guy to hire an airport transfer or Scooter for a few days.

Room Tip: Beach / Sea View Room is the Go, The Apartments are great.

we stayed in this hotel for 2 weeks after a week closer to the action, was please to be on a quieter road and with lovely views from an ocean front view room on the 3rd floor , no lift but the balcony made up for it, rooms were clean as was all the hotel ,the pool was small but good fro a dip and the beach is just across the road, Patong is never quiet but if you want to be near but not to close this is a good option fro a reasonable price
breakfast was included but was only average

Room Tip: pay extra for the balcony and view

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...
