This holiday we were staying at hotels with quirky themes… so we choose Nicky’s from reviews and photos… We were not too sure about what we would find as there was some confusion over deposit requirements and confirmation, emails back and forth etc..
Once we reached the hotel, we were very happy we didn’t give up! Place is really well kept, clean, tidy. Décor is really cool. Staff are friendly and approachable.
Room was good size, plenty of space. There is nowhere to sit and relax, but no hassle, just head to the bar.. LOL.. Really quirky, the bedhead served as the back of the vanity area of the bathroom.. the door is all glass with a mirrored tint, during the day you can see out, but no one can see in.. there are curtains as well, for night time. Bed was nice, big and beautifully decorated when we arrived. Kept the decorations and rose petals on there till just before we had to go to sleep.. it was so nice.
Some hotels you go to, you have one meal there and feel like you need to try elsewhere… Not so with Nicky’s, we had breakfast and dinner there everyday.
The hotel rooms are set behind the bar/restaurant area, so there is not much noise coming from the street.
It is not in the centre of things, but only takes about 15min to walk to Bangla Road. There is so much to see on the way, so much going on, that you don’t realise how far you’ve gone till you are at the cross roads. Tuk tuks abound if you choose not to walk.
I think that the staff, Kai and Nicky, make this place special. We met a few of the other guests whilst we were there, and did end up feeling like home. We had to leave grudgingly (to move onto our next Thailand destination), as we could’ve stayed for another month.. If you visit Patong, visit Nicky’s.
