Reviewed 13 September 2013

The hotel is awesome! its close to the beach yet its quiet and away from the noise Breakfast was very nice.Within 10 minutes walk from the hotel are plenty of restaurants and various shops.. Dominic, General Manager of the hotel was fantastic! and so was the rest of his staff. The rooms were clean,the beds are very comfortable with different choice of pillows should you like hard or soft! nice patio doors with table and chairs outside.. the swimming pool was lovely and peaceful.. Only thing I think the hotel should look into doing would be insect/mosquito door screens so you can have the door open without them flying in the room...
Its easy to book trips to other islands from the arrival area at phuket airport too and they will pick up from the hotel and back again, Also there is a tourist desk in the hotel, if you do not get the chance to do this.. don't bother booking this further in advance.. book it when you get there. But ultimately when booking trips.. NEGOTIATE! anyways this was an amazing end to my 5 weeks in South East Asia :D Dominic, thank you! a pleasure to of met you in march.. Me and my friends will be back in the future! A hotel I shall never forget and for all the right reasons!

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view room on 1st floor if you want nice view without so many mosquitos

Dear “Ram0798”

Can’t believe how quick the time flies! It was great having you and your friends with us and thank you for your great review.

You touch base on all the great points of our hotel. From nice design where you feel comfortable and the lovely pool, the great location within Patong and the beach just across the road, value for money with great service delivery from the team, Express Breakfast Bar with the “Grab & Go” concept for the ones in the rush or take a coffee, muffin and fruit to the bus when they get picked up for a day tour.

Great tip as well with the negotiation - due to high and low season there is very often space to get a better deal with the tour operators when in Patong comparing to booking in advance.

It is soon time for your next travel experience and if you make it to this part of the world again let me know.

Stay Smart with us!
Sincere regards
Dominic

I have stayed at this hotel last weekend during my visit to Phuket. We arrived at the hotel at 9am, and we were quite impressed that the hotel staffs allowed us to check in early (our check in time was 2pm). The size of the rooms is ok for 2. Very basic room with all essentials. I love the decorations of the room as it's very modern and comfy. It's good that they provide 2 types of pillow (soft and firm). The most important to me is the rooms is very clean. Breakfast was good, and it's a plus point that they allow guests to do take away if you are in a rush and unable to have breakfast in the restaurant. I like the fact that they prepared take away cups for the guest to do coffee take away.

The hotel is close to the Patong beach and shops in Patong. The 7-11 convenient store is just right outside the hotel, so it's very convenient. There is a massage shop outside hotel, the service is pretty good.

The only negative point is the pool is a little too small. As I went during low season, I can't imagine how crowded it will be during high season!

Dear “zynn”

We are a hotel for today’s guest like you. Adventurous and independent traveler, if we have rooms available we allow early check-in at no extra charge. Phuket is a 24 hours place where airplanes land all around the clock and if we have rooms availabe there is nothing to stop us to let guests check-in early to make your experience as comfortable as possible at the hotel to be ready to enjoy Phuket.

With all the guest “out and about” exploring the island there are not many people at the hotel and this was the same in the high season. Plus during the high season there are a lot of our guest just wondering down to the beach. We are not a resort hotel where people stay all day around the pool and expect a swim-up bar.

Our Grab & Go concept at breakfast is really taking a momentum where we get a lot if mentions for this great add-on. Many of our guests are going on tours and if they had a late night they just enjoy taking the breakfast on the run and having it in the bus till they are dropped off to start the adventures.

Please let us know when you are making your way back to Patong.

Stay Smart with us

Sincere regards
Dominic

This is in a gem of a location, such easy access to Patong Beach, Nightlife and Shopping centres but in a quiet street. The Hotel staff and amenities are excellent. Breakfast facilities could be streamlined to become more efficient but aside from that we really enjoyed our stay.

Dear “ Rachel”

Thank you for taking time to review our Holiday Inn Express Phuket Patong Beach Central. As you describe we have a great location in Patong, close enough to walk to all places but far enough from the noise of Patong’s nightlife.

I am glad you enjoyed our concept and if you make your way back to Patong let us know.

The express tagged in its name says it all. Simple breakfast, room and toiletries.
Not recommended if you want to spend all day in the hotel. Good if you just need to sleep and chill.

Pool is cool but about small. No restaurant.

Dear “minnx80”

Holiday Inn Express stands for great value for money, great location, great sleep experience, free Express Breakfast Bar and Free WiFi. One room type - one price to make it simple. (except the three Express suites).

Enabling to offer such great pricing we offer everything you need but nothing you don’t. You do not pay for the kid’s club you do not use, or the multiple restaurants which you are not visiting because there is so much choice around just outside of the hotel. Patong has so much to offer and all in walking distance that we deliver with our hotel concept a great price point for the location we are in, just across the road on the beach but we do not have the services such as restaurants, kids club or bell boys.

Stay Smart with us!

Sincere regards
Dominic

I was staying at Holiday Inn Express Patong for 5 Nights. I stayed with my girlfriend and both my parents.
The hotel itself was great, it has a large open-air Lobby with a lot of couches around, a medium size swimming pool with kids pool beside, a gym, and a laundry. For an "express" hotel it does ticks all that we needed.

The breakfast are simple, but it is enough for us. With some danish, bread, sausage, fried rice, cereal, fruit juices are available. They also rotate some of the items for the next day.

The room was quite large and have a balcony facing the pool / garden. It's clean and has wi-fi in the room. The bathroom is adequate.

The staff was attentive and helpful. We think it is a nice touch that the securities always give a salute gesture when we came back to the hotel.

The location of the hotel is great. It's only a few steps away to Patong beach and not too far to Bangla road (around 15 minutes walking). There is a Thai massage booth, pharmacy and seven eleven (24 hours) just beside the hotel. Don't forget to try Toni's Pancake right across the beach near the hotel.

There are room for improvement though. Maybe the language skills of the staff could be better. And a Shampoo for the shower would be great.

Overall it is a great hotel. Would recommend it and maybe we will be back someday.

Room Tip: Ask for building 1 or 2 if you want to stay around the lobby, less walk to the room.

too many mainland chinese that are rude, noisy and spit in the pool, this ruins the high points i was suppose to give to the hotel. the hotel has small size box tissue in the room, which is quite a nice gesture.panasonic plasma TV,, cable, empty fridge, tooth brush, wall hanging soap in both the shower rm and the toilet sink, only 1 kind, very clean towels, bedsheets, bright rooms, nice staffs.
simple breakfast, but stained chairs. every morning is the same, 1 kind of congee, (either fish, pork or chicken), either beef or chicken sausage,(low quality), well done sunny side up fried egg/scramble/ cuts of frittata egg, toast, cucumber, tomato, lettuce, fried rice, 3 kinds of buns or danish(small size) overall the hotel is above average is worthwhile, just the clientele.

Dear “KatieGaan”

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and thank you for your high rating in “Value”, “Sleep experience” and “rooms”. It is a shame that other hotel guests have tainted your experience at our lovely property. I will communicate this concern with our team to address when seen firsthand as this is not acceptable behavior. But very glad that otherwise you rate us as above average and worthwhile to stay.

Something that is unique about this hotel is the "coffee to go" for the breakfast menu, Literally prepared with the "take away cup"! awesome idea!
The location for this hotel is also very convenient! walking distance to Patong Beach, Patong Seafood, JungCeylon Mall, Bangla Road.
Hotel is very clean and i love the bathroom, it's equipped with rope-like to hang wet clothing, very much needed for beach resort :) and like the idea of dual-door for the shower + bathroom, smart!
The bed and the fluffy pillows, just the way i like it!
Recommend to stay if travelling with group!

Dear “Inca T”

You have just described the hotel in the best way what we are. We stand for “value for money” and “great and convenient location”. A hotel for the Smart Guests.

Appreciating the great value for money but being just across the road from the beach and in walk distance to restaurant, markets, entertainment and shopping center. Close enough to walk but far enough away from the noise.

The “Grab & Go” concept with the take-away coffee is getting a lot of mentioning from our guests same as well the soft and firm pillows for a great sleep experience.

We look forward to have you with us again in the near future.

Stay Smart with us!

Sincere regards
