1st the positives of The Tana Patong Hotel. It’s in an excellent location being a 30 second walk from the new shopping precinct and only a 2 minute walk to the main Bangla Road... It’s clean and has all the things you would expect for example temperature controlled air con, mini bar and a power shower, Satellite TV (although limited channels). The room is well cleaned every day and the service provided by the staff is the usual high standard found in Thailand.
Ok, now the negatives. There are only a few negatives but for me it will stop me staying again, but you may not be so bothered. The main issue is the bed, I requested a king size bed and found that it was two single beds pushed together, this would not be a problem if they had been identical beds and not on wheels.... Tana!!! Please buy some proper beds!!!! The next issue is the noise during the day, because it’s right next to the shopping centre you get a little bit of road noise and people talking when you are relaxing next to the pool. The final issue is the safety deposit boxes are in reception and although it’s open 24/7 you can only get to your cash up to 8pm... this is problem if you get back late or run out of cash during the evening.
Overall it’s a nice hotel especially as it was so cheap but the issues I have raised will stop me staying again... Having said that they are simple to resolve and maybe if the Tana Hotel management read this they may think about some simple improvements.
