The hotel is very close to Patong Beach, few mins walk. It is close to many restaurants, Bangla road and street shopping.
Rooms are clean with good décor and comfy bed. Some rooms are pool view, best to check while booking. The layout seemed same for all rooms.
I like their “Express” way of handling things. They provide low tariffs for better quality, by saving cost on extras.
So one needs to walk to the reception for extra needs like ice/toothbrush/shaving blade, etc..
They do not self cater food. The room service food ordered is serviced by a set of nearby restaurants.
This never bothered us. The food menu was cheaper than usual resort prices.
The swimming pool was not huge, but great. Rooms were quiet. Do not take rooms which face the road.
The hotel had a gym, that we never used.
Breakfast area can get crowded. For a person who eats limited non-vegetarian food, I did not find many cooked veggie options. I had to rely on fruit/baked goods/milk/juice etc.
Overall we found it great value for money. For the same cost, we could only find smaller resorts with limited facilities.
