This is a good hotel in a very central location with easy access to Patong beach and other shopping streets, a short 7 minutes walk to the main Jungceylon shopping centre, but far enough to avoid the loudness and madscapade down Bangla street.
We stayed in a deluxe pool facing room on the 6th floor and was impressed. The room is very clean and modern with a pool facing balcony. The bathroom is spacious with a bathtub and a separate shower cubicle with an overhead shower hose. Come evening, the balcony was certainly useful for a few drinks and chilling out after a day under the sun.
Free Wi-Fi was good and buffet breakfast was adequate with a fair selection. Front office staff were informative and helpful with any queries and communication was not a problem.
Sleep was good as the king size bed we had was very comfortable but unfortunately, the walls structure tend to be a bit thin, as on and off, we were disturbed by the noises in the next room or conversations along the corridor.
There are many massage joints and eating places just outside of the hotel, so getting a good rubdown or filling the stomach will not be an issue. Chinatown is just about next door but I've to say the quality of the seafood served at most of the restaurants there were rather disappointing and mediocre. The famous number 6 restaurant a short distance diagonally across the road along the way towards Bangla St, offer authentic and delicious Thai food but again as it is a small eatery with limited sittings, there is always a long queue at all times of the day.
Palmyra seemed to be a hotel pretty popular with families and extended families with kids in tow, so if you are looking for a quiet and romantic place to stay, this may not be the place to be.
Besides that, it is a good hotel in a desirable location. Certainly value for money.
