I didn’t plan on staying at this hotel, but when my booking disappeared at a nearby hotel which happened to be full, I wandered into the nearest hotel with availability to prevent moving far with my luggage. The Minotel is a small, basic and cheap hotel located not too far from the beach or from Bangla road, so its location... More

The hotel does not have an elevator, and we got the fourth floor. The bathroom floated with water every shower. The location is good, 5 minutes walk to the beach or to bangla road. No wifi in the room, only at the lobby.

With previous managment it was a very nice hotel, although not very strict in security matters. It has now a new management and things got really worst. The actual management does not fullfill commitments made by staff, demanding 50% more on arrival that price previous quoted. AVOID IT

The location is very close to Patong Beach, just 5 minuts walking! Party Street is about 10 minutes walking. Laundry is just opposite the street around the corner. Tour venders just along the street. It is just so easy. If you travel budget is not that low, it is a good option since it is not a hostel, but a... More
