A real place for real people, highly recommended. Backpacker-friendly rates and a good restaurant, the only one serving descent breakfast... More

Stayed three nights over the New Year period, staff fantastic, included breakfast all day a plus. The room was tastefully decorated with a great view from the window of vibrant street below. We have stayed three times before, will stay again.

Such a welcoming and friendly hotel in the middle of all the paradise complex action! Hotel rooms are simple but very comfortable, excellent cleaning service and lovely popular bar/restaurant down stairs. Highly recommended - very safe and great value for money! :) I have stayed here three times now.

Really great place to stay for single travellers or with friends. The guesthouse could not be better located both for the gay scene which is right on your door step, local shopping centre, main Phuket strip and very short walk to the beach. Try spending the extra money and get a front facing balcony room, they're no different really from... More

I had a great time while in Connect. The room was nice and spacious, with nice portraits at the bathroom..!; The restaurant is just ok (a little cold but laidback feel on it) in interior design but the food is very good as in Thai food in general (the Morning Glory is my favourite!); great value. It can be pretty... More

Had dinner with a Thai friend. He ordered chicken curry and was very please. I ordered a T-bone steak with baked potato. I should have been suspicious when I saw the price was US $9.00.I requested the steak to be cooked medium rare. After an inordinate amount of time I was served a steak well done and tough as old...

The Connect Guesthouse is part of the Paradise Complex. This was one of the early prestigious tourists developments in Patong. But neglect, mismanagement, lack of maintenance, a diversity of residents and the Thai way of community living has meant it is now in parts quite rundown and shabby. But it is also a very real place full of real people... More

No hotel in the world is so mis-named. I have stayed here before, several years ago, before the original owners sold it on and was reasonably satisfied. This time, after a couple of weeks of email exchanges with the hotel manager who assured me that each room had reliable wifi access iwhich I had specifically asked for as an essential,... More

I stayed at Connect Guest house on the Summer of 2011 and I thought back then it was great value for the price I was paying. It is located in the 'gay area' and in general I had a great time there. That's the reason I decided to stay there on my second visit to Phuket during Christmas 2012. This... More
