Alfresco Phuket Hotel
Ranked #334 of 394 Hotels in Kathu
Reviewed 12 January 2013

What:
I really enjoyed my stay at Al.fres.co Phuket Hotel. I chose the grand deluxe room due to the 50% discount flash deal. I think that it's really worth it! The size of the toilet is huge, with a bathtub included. Decorations of the room is simple yet elegant. There's also an infinity pool on the rooftop for a short swim. The bed and pillows were fine accompanied with simple furniture.
Not to mention, breakfast is included in the flash deal bought! Despite that being convenient, breakfast served for all the four days was the same with only slight variations. However, you get to choose the way you want your eggs to be done! (Boiled, poached, fried, omelette and scrambled)

When:
I traveled in the period of January 2013. During this period, weather is pretty hot and suitable for water sports. I engaged the service of an reliable taxi driver for a city tour too. There are land activities such as go-kart, horse riding, visting cashew nut factory and more. I went for massages and spa and also go-kart. The oil massage was really awesome! I felt so relaxed after the whole body massage. The go-kart was a great experience for me. It was very very exciting and I could feel the adrenaline rush. I have never tried travelling at the speed before with a go kart. Even though it's a little expensive and the timing is really short, it's still worth the try if you enjoy such activities.
Point to note, do dress light and comfortably!

Where:
Al.fres.co Phuket Hotel is located in Patong. They provide free one way tuk tuk services from the hotel to Patong beach and Junceylon Shopping Mall. It is approximately 15 minutes walk back from Junceylon Shopping Mall. You can also walk to Banzaan Market, a night market selling night market food, from Junceylon Shopping Mall.

How:
The hotel staff was really helpful. When there were issues with the water heater, they rectify the problem quickly. Moreover, room service was also quick and well done.

Overall:
I really enjoyed the stay at Al.fres.co Phuket hotel. I didn't have much issues regarding the stay and staff was friendly and approachable. They do provide additional services such as airport transfer at a slightly higher rate. My only wish will be that they provide two way transport to and fro the hotel.

Room Tip: Try to request for rooms not facing the construction site.

As the title says :) The photos didn't lie.

The rooms are clean, comfy and cool. Very modern designed. The Premier Room is really really spacious! Worth the value!

It's located away from the Patong which you will need other transportation to get there, or you can walk for 15 minutes to Patong. The hotel is sweet that they do provide free shuttle service to OTOP, Ban Zan Market and Jungceylon. :)

The staff is helpful and friendly as well :) The wifi connection is good and stable, which you can always surf the net.

The swimming pool is on the rooftop, it's clean too!

The staff is very friendly and helpful.Especially the owner of hotel is really nice.Alfresco is a great little hotel with a modern decor and stylish design in a seemingly newly built house.
There's also free shuttle to patong beach and jungceylon mall. We can also take a walk to bangla road which has so many atrractions of nightlife.I will definitely come back again for sure.

Visited the hotel in Febuary 2012. I think the staff makes the place amazing. They were so interactive and very friendly people and it contributed greatly to my review. The rooms are small, but done up so nicely that you dont even mind that at all. The pool is a blessing as some evenings we just wanted to relax there and it was always open. Its quite closeby to Patong beach and Karon beach so was pretty easy to travel either way. They were very helpful with our airport transfers and all our tours so made things easy peasy. Food was good & a nice variety. Very clean and lovely! Cool setup. THANKS for everything!

This is probably the best hotel I have stayed in in Thailand. The rooms were modern and comfortable, and the staff could not do enough for us. The roof top pool was very nice and we never had any trouble getting sunbeds. The hotel also offers free WiFi which is available throughout and is of a good speed. Breakfast was basic and was what we'd come to expect from any hotel in Thailand, but this didn't bother us.

The hotel has its own tuk tuk which will taxi you for free, however we found that the hotel was in walking distance of most places, including Bangla Road.

The only downside to this hotel was that the surrounding area is pretty much a building site, so the views aren't great. Saying this, I would not hesitate to stay in this hotel again.

NIce hotel for budget price. Rooms have been built using budget materials but still o.k. Very clean, great WiFi in room and good working air con,good service, nice staff, breakfast basic but good. Not close to the noisy nightlife so if you like it quiet, this is a good place to be. Only complaint is there is no shower screen so the whole bathroom floor gets wet and no shelf to put shampoo or soap on. For the $50 Aus I paid per night (including breakfast), I was very happy.
