“Great location, right on the beach and close to night life:)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

Styed for 3 nights 23-28.11. 2013.
Hotel is not newest, but thai style furniture OK. The location is great! its 20 metres from room to the beach, and Bangla road is just few steps from hotel. We stayed in ground floor, I would recommend due noise of late returning tourist and from security reasons (sometimes having the glass door open would be the best solution while the A/C is quite noisy. Romm has LCD and wifi for free. The beach next to the hotel is nice, you have to extra pay for 2 sunbed+sunshade 300 BTH/day. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was good (forget cheese and almost ham, but you will get used to it:)) so thai soups,rice,kari, toast bread, butter, ham, and "egg stand", of course fruit and vegetable + as a bonus you have the breakfast directly on the beach :) Also once we had lunch in this restaurant, and it was tasty and reasonable price for a hotel restaurant, but dont waste time and money here, go to some of plenty restaurants on the street located nearby, it will be better and cheaper.You will feel absolutely safe to walk at night around the hotel and on the streets so dont worry to go out in this place. The hotel has a great SPA, you can enjoy massage either inside (strong AC, dont recommend) or outside right on the beach, we paid 300 BTH for 60 mins massage and it was great! Next to the hotel is 7 eleven, ATM, lots of taxi stops - bargain the price for transport and maybe you dont even need the "travel agency" to buy the trip - just take the leaflets and show to taxi or tuk tuk where you want to go - we usually got to 50% of the proposed price by hiring a taxi for full of half day.I read some complaines here for the service, stuff etc. but we didnt book any trip via reception, or taxi , so i can not judge. We didnt have any problem to solved and the stuff was very friendly.
Overall - great located hotel for a very good price, so our reco is definitelly yes for the next time.

For the cheapest rooms, I really think this hotel is about convenience (you have the older part of the hotel facing the city, aka some noise etc). For the more expensive rooms, it looks great (faces the pool and towards the sea). We stayed in the cheaper rooms so we can't comment on the more expensive ones. Rooms were clean, pool was great but bar, restaurant & travel agent a bit lacking. Staff knows limited English but 1/2 of the time they were friendly, and the other 1/2 they weren't. The hotel is about 1/4 of a block from the main street for partying, etc. I'm quite undecided if I would stay again. Patong is really a 1 or 2 night place before you move onwards to your next destination. The hotel is really two hotels in one (older cheaper rooms & newer more expensive ones). The prices ranges for what you get are too great and the lower end rooms tend to bring down the hotel's overall ratings.

Room Tip: If you go for the cheapest rooms, ask for the ones not facing the street. Those tend to be the loude...

Ok, check in is at 14:00 clear enough. But 13:30 is not that long.
Staff could be more nice and say that unfortunately room is not ready yet than saying check in is after 14:00.
But also we are talking about a 3* hotel as staff is not supposed to have high standards altough I found good service in other destinations.
Bar & restaurant overpriced for quality offered. Plenty of choice outside so don't stay inside.
Room (a suite!) smells mold. Old decoration is not a problem but the smell of mold is hard to accept altough a 3* because is very intense.
Direct to the beach is the only positive point I've found and the reason I've booked. But if you don't want to be in the middle of all mess choose a little but further than this location. There is no peace at the beach.
Not forgetting also to advise to not take ANY taxi from hotel. Walk 1min and there is a taxi stop and you can get much better rates. Asked a taxi to tiger kingdom and they asked for 600bht and said taxis here are very expensive. Being a hotelier I decided to take a taxi from street because I saw location was not far. Guess what, paid 400 and even did not fight for price. So... Being that decided also to book tours outside. There are too many places outside so no need to bother.
Breakfast is basic. You can't find ham or cheese.
And the cherry on top of cake are the cockroaches in bedroom! Finger size.
If I recommend this hotel? Never.
No need for hotel on the beach as you don't even have view. There is many choice around with better reviews and beach is public everywhere...
If you want a room coackroaches free book the cheapest one. Superior. A lit more noisy but nothing unbareable.
And aa. İf you need a taxi to airport don't bother to ask reception, just ask from street because they cannot handle it unless it's 24h before! The only hotel that İ've been that really the only thing reception can do is to handle you the room key! (After 2pm LOL). Please do book an hostel! You might get a better service and quality of what you paid for. Even after reading the reviews İ gave it a try. My biggest mistake being an hotelier. Do trust guest reviews!

Had a really nice stay here for three days. Had a beach front room but don't expect the panoramic beach view, the trees take care of that. That said the room was clean and tidy, the staff were courteous and helpful. The pool is cool in the afternoon. Lovely for a swim as you leave the beach. There's a great beach front restaurant attached to the hotel really nice food. This is also the breakfast area. There's plenty of hot water and cupboard space. The safe and the tv work well. You can be on the beach, have a drink in your hand, be sitting down for a meal or shopping within thirty seconds of leaving the room.

Hotel is right on the beach. We satyed here last year and came back for 2 weeks this year. During that time they have upgraded the resturant, Bikini bar furniture and added couches tio the side of the restuarant so you can sit out and look over the beach and watch the last of beach goers as the sun sets. The resort was clean and the restuarant and bar staff where very friendly once they knew that you where guests. Hotel is very close to everything and is situated approx half way along beach and 2 minute walk from Bangla Rd (but far away not to hear any noise). Room was a typical hotel room and was clean an spacious with flat screen TV and DVD player. Mini bar prices wher reasoanble and not highly inflated like other hotels around the world. Pool had plenty of lounges under shade. Right out front you can make use of Bikini Bar (part of resort) lounges where you get a lounge and towel for the day for 150 BAHT

the hotel is in the middle of Patong Bay and on the beach! best location ever. We had a fantastic stay and staff very very helpful. 1 or 2 unfriendly staff but you cannot have it all. Will certainly stay at the same hotel when we visit again. Rinaldi and Ed Pieret Durban South Africa

Staff at reception nice & very efficient. Buffet breakfast very good & plenty of options. Other staff ok but not overly happy. Junior Suite 3106 ground floor next to pool very nice & big. TV in room outdated & small, no dvd, rest of room good, tea/coffee/kettle, etc etc. The location makes this place, reasonably priced for the location on the beach &100m from entertainment central (Bangla Rd), not noisy, slept well, some fireworks nearby at night though.
Hotel a little dated but clean & did I mention location.

Room Tip: ground floor Junior suite next to pool a winner (eg 3106)
