“Exceeded my expectations”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

I holiday in Patong 3 to 4 times a year and have my favourite hotels. This time I thought it was time to try a different hotel. After much research (Tripadvisor) I picked Patong Hemingways. It was excellent and lived up to the reviews. I stayed for a week and will stay again next visit. The room was large and clean. It had a small balcony, safe, large bathroom, minibar and comfortable bed. It was cleaned every day. The location was perfect, close to the shopping centre and to Bangla Road. Also, the WIFI was very reliable. Reception staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast covered all the standard options and the staff were very good

I stayed here from 14th-28th March 2014 & had a great time. I chose this hotel as it was close to my Dentist in the JungCelon shopping centre. I was pleasantly surprised by the fairly quiet surrounds in the busy centre of Patong Beach.
The staff here are great & really make you feel welcome.
The room attendants fit you in to their schedule so you can take your time getting up. The bed is a hard Thai style mattress but very comfortable, which I like, but I'm pretty sure they have a topper if you ask. My shower was always hot & air-con always cool, The bar fridge worked & the TV had 80 odd channels.
The rooftop pool & bar are a great escape from the heat as there was usually a breeze.
The downstairs restaurant has a great range of Thai & Western food and drinks at very reasonable prices.
The staff always say hello & can arrange most things for you, I recommend you use their Airport Transfer service for 800THB as the driver works for the hotel & can be booked for tours as well.
I am heading back in August & will come back here for sure.
Thanks for the wonderful stay

Dear IamBrooksy.
Your lovely review is much appreciated and I am sure our staff will be delighted to read it. You are correct if you find the mattress too firm for you just ask at reception and we will provide a softer topper. Glad you enjoyed the roof top pool and bar, the sun deck is a popular place with our guests who prefer something quieter than the beach. You are correct in recommending the hotel airport transfer service. We hear many complaints from our guests who have used to local taxi from the airport, from overcharging to driving round and round while the taxi try's to find the hotel. The airport transfer can be arranged by sending an email direct to the hotel. Thank you once again for your review. We hope you will come and stay with us again, Perhaps you may like to try our new hotel Hemingway's SILK on your next trip.
Regards
Victor

Visited for 10 days from 16th March 2014, was for only 7 but extended.
We are not one's for writing reviews but felt impelled to for this location.
Thailand is noted for its smiling people & the staff at Hemingways promote this to the full.
Fantastic bar, very clean rooms, sparkling pool, exceptional service & great food too!!!
What more could a holidaying couple require?
Let us tell you.......Nothing!
Very competitive rates you will be hard pushed to match let alone beat....were we impressed? Definitely, and we will be staying again on our very next visit,
We really can not "big" this place up enough, as experienced international travellers it was a refreshing revelation.

Room Tip: Its a quite corner in the heart of Patong so unless you want a view of Patong....then go high street...

Visited in Jan- 2014, would say it is one of the best month to visit Phuket when it is quite pleasant all around.

- This hotel is just next to the famous Soi Bangla Road and yet far away from the noise.
- Service of the staffs are appreciated, we had a early morning flight and they provided a packed breakfast. They also gave us a very good Phi Phi Island tour deal. (1000 Bhatt/Person).
- Rooms are big enough to accommodate 2.
- Complimentary breakfast was good enough.
- Jangceylon Mall is just in the neighborhood.
- There was no view from our room, but who goes in a holiday to stay in the hotel room. :)
- The pool is really small. It works more like a Jacuzzi.. :)

If I visit Phuket again, i will definitely going to stay there again ...

Trip Advice ---

- During Arrival in the airport you can reach Patong by shared car services which will cost you 250 Bhatt. But if you have a morning flight during departure please make sure you book the cab weel in advance else you have to pay for the whole car all by yourself.
- Phi Phi tour are negotiable, so choose wisely (We took Sea Angle Luxury), its value for money.
- Jangceylon Mall offers lot of food option.
- There is a brewery in Jangceylon Mall, can't afford to miss it...

Njoy your tour

Clean and well maintained. Very good location, close to beach, juncelon mall and 10 secs walk to banga road. Staffs are very cordial. Very good WiFi connection from our room. Breakfast was o.k. but they were so caring that they prepare our breakfast even at 5 AM when we were going for a trip.

The manager and staff were extremely helpful and I appreciated it since it was my first trip to Thailand. The manager even negotiated a fare with a cab driver for me and arranged for airport transfer. Front desk was always open and ready to assist with anything you might need. Great location. It's on a busy street, but it's on a corner that feels quiet and secluded. It's adjacent to Jung Ceylon. It's about a minute's walk to Bangla Road, and another two or three minute walk to Patong Beach. --and there's a Starbucks along the way! Most tour operators pick you up at your hotel, so you rarely need a cab. The overall size of the hotel and the rooms made me compare it to a European hotel, as opposed to a beach resort. They did have an excellent pool and jacuzzi on the roof, complete with bar and restaurant service. Nice restaurant and bar on the ground floor offered both Thai and western dishes. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Stay on the side that faces the back street. It's much quieter and you can get some sleep away...

Dear James D,
Thank you for taking the time to write such a lovely review for our hotel. You are correct in your comments that the hotel is not really classified as a beach resort as the beach is a little walk away. Its very much a town hotel even so our guests enjoy our roof top pool, sun deck and bar which does have a view of the sea and mountains. Definitely for the night owls the rooms away from the street are quieter for those who wish to sleep late in the morning. But either sides of the hotel is quiet and you do not hear the noise of the nightlife music just around the corner.We believe that our guests appreciate the hotel security and that the reception is operated 24 hours. We hope you will stay with us again soon.
Regards
Victor
