I was happy to check in once I saw the blackboard out front advertising rooms for THB700 with superfast wifi. Of course, the rooms were actually THB800 and with dial up internet speeds accessed through a generic wi-fi hotspot that only allowed log in to one gadget per room (your phone OR your laptop, not both.) My room safe would... More

Great place to unwind and relax and close to the main street and to the gay street. good value (for phuket anyway). Air con was a bit weak and took a bit longer to cool the room but once the room was cool, there were no issues.

I was given a room where I couldn´t sleep because of the blasting sound of the music from the clubs around. Besides the air conditioning didn´t work properly and the ceiling fan was blocked. Consequently the room itself was the sauna they advertise on the web. I was offered another room in a different building at double price. I couldn´t... More

The best thing about Aquarius is the location, which is a 30-second walk to the gay bars/clubs/drag shows just around the corner. It is located right on the main strip in Patong, with several restaurants, bars, and stores. The property, however, needs a major overhaul. My room was large. The furniture seems to have arrived from the 1980s. The bathroom... More

That was my second time staying in Aquarius Guesthouse , Is great location, all the gay life is right next door, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. When you travel solo like I do, this is important.

I'ts a very cheerful atmosphere there where you feel at home at once. The staff is friendly and helpful, the breakfast great and my room - situated to the quiet front road - big and comfortable. Very comfortable is the direct access to the sauna, spa and the little swimming-pool. The guesthouse is very close to the gay night life... More

Pros: The staff at the Aquarius was helpful and very friendly. Rather quiet for a place in the city. But many contras: The room I had booked was labelled as "APARTMENT SUITE PENTHOUSE". What I got was a room with totally insufficient aircon (I was sweating the whole night). Equipment and furniture are used much and some replacement would be... More

Dear valued customer, we are sorry to hear that you were not fully satisfied about the room. Although the air conditioner in your room is only one and a half years old, it was found out that it had an exterior leak and therefor didn't cool well. We were not aware of this before your stay, but this issue obviously... More

Dear valued customer, thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay with us, except for the two issues you mention. Our apologizes for the noise, but this most probably came from the building next door which was under renovation at the time of your stay.
