Reviewed 29 April 2012

Great concept with clean and well equipped rooms. Rooms are spacious enough and it's low density means it's not overcrowded and quiet.

Breakfast was great and service is very personalized. The only downside would be the tricky aircond which took about 10-15 mins to cool the room; even less if you turn the fan on.

Location is great as well and the team very friendly. Will definitely come back!

Room Tip: The rooms with pool access look tempting!

Associates are kind and friendly. Even Nicky the owner takes time to say hello to everyone. The location is accessible to beach & shopping. Will definitely comeback again. The place screams of creativity and beyond the box.

Quirky small hotel with unique decor; even the pool matched the hotel's theme. I appreciated the effort that went into the decor. Room was a good size and spotless, but the floor was plain concrete and got dusty quite quickly. Shower was fab - overhead as well as hand-held, excellent water pressure. Aircon was effective, plus there was also a ceiling fan. Note that there were no windows, only a glass sliding door along an entire stretch of wall, with floor-to-ceiling curtains that had to be permanently drawn to preserve privacy. Coffee/tea making facilities provided. Toiletries supplied and good quality towels.

Pleasant restaurant out front with good view of the main road - great for people-watching. The food was surprisingly good too, and reasonably priced. I had the home-made burger the 1st night and it was excellent. 2nd night I had 2 Thai dishes which were both very good. Breakfast was plentiful and excellent, although only 1 cup of coffee provided.

My main complaint about the hotel was that I was severely bitten by mosquitoes when sunbathing by the pool. This happened on both occasions I sunbathed, so I am certain of that fact. I suspect this was due more to the surrounding area than to the hotel's failures. The hotel would also benefit from a few more sun-loungers by the pool - there clearly weren't enough available for all the guests.

The hotel is located on a stretch of busy road with numerous shops, restaurants, bureau de change, travel/tour agents & massage salons. You can get very good exchange rates and incredibly cheap massages - approx. £5 for an hour. It is about a 5 min walk to the beach and 8 min to Bangla Rd. However, I would not bother with Patong Beach if you are looking for a nice stretch of sand - it is nasty, dirty & vastly overcrowded.

I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a small clean & quiet hotel with few frills but conveniently located for shops, restaurants & transport.

This small 20 rooms hotel is conveniently located in the centre of Patong beach, Phuket. It developed from a Harley Biker Bar to a specialised biker hotel with the bar in front and 10 pool access rooms which are uniquely themed and customised. Rates are reasonable, food and drinks are great and very convenient. You can rent bikes, Ferrari, Lambo....

Room Tip: There are 10 pool rooms and they are very popular!

Stayed here for 2 nights in January 2012. The rooms are amazing - all decked out in car and bike themes. We had the Ferrari room. Room was huge and the fittings were all quality and well thought out design. The swimming pool was amazing and a bonus that it was open 24 hours so you could have a late night swim. This is one of the most funky hotels we've ever stayed at and it's really feel priced. Breaky was pretty average but had dinner here 2 nights and the meals were really good as well. Easy 5 minute walk to the beac, bars. You couldn't find better hotel in Patong !!

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor at the back!

This is a great little hotel in the heart of Patong. It is a quick walk to the beach (less than 10 minutes at an average pace). The hotel and the attached bar/restaurant Nicky's Handlebar are just perfect for a stay in Patong. The rooms are clean and cool (both in temperature and in look and feel) and are very quiet. I was there for a week and never heard any noise from my neighbours during my entire stay. The staff are friendly and helpful, especially Kevin and Kai, and they all make certain you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. Kevin is a wealth of information on what to do and see, where to go and where not to go in Patong.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again when I return to Patong.

This hotel and bar are so well run. We have visited quite a few times over the last few years and it was great to see Nicky and Khai have opened a hotel on the site. The rooms are fantastic - themed along the lines of the name - bikers!. But they are not over the top, and don't think it is a 'low-life' place because it is not. The complex is professionally run and caters to all manner of clients. The food in the restaurant is some of the best on the island...the drinks wonderfully cold..the staff and service never fails to impress....the management always present and inviting. Good on you guys...keep doing what you have been.

Room Tip: Ask for one towards the rear of the building.
