RECOMMENDED: This is my 3rd stay at this property and good to see the same staff since the first stay. Alex in the backroom and Hans keeping watch out front. BYD continues to expand on this quiet block as they rehab other nearby building and just a few feet from the beat of Patong.
Rooms are quite comfortable and large. This is a city hotel so you're not on the beach (10 minute walk to touristy Patong beach) but close to my favorite Oriental spa/massage just 3 minute walk and very nice). Our returns are mostly due to the nice room, quiet but central location, friendly staff and quick respond to special requests and eager to help make a reservation. Definitely get the airport pick-up/return.
On the downside, I'm continually disappointed in the restaurant (it's a nice open air place attractive enough). One dish arrived stone cold (Pad Thai sitting under the heat lamp turns quickly into a glob, it was quickly replaced) and the rest of lunch was simply pedestrian fare. Typical Thai, not bad, but not good either. the bar is active but not noisy in the evening and a nice drink before dinner. Breakfast unfortunately has remained uninspiring and the staff turn the music volume up (just what you want in the morning). I complain, they turn it down, but impacts the image I think the owners want you to have.
I prefer this hotel type to a resort style where you truly have to work to leave. Despite the small nits, I never hesitate to return.
