If you're after staying near patong/Bangla road I would have to say the expat hotel (taking into consideration price) is one of the better places to stay. The rooms are well looks after, but are a bit outdated. Rooms were clean, good location- you can hear the noise from Bangla road from outside, but not inside. Probably 4 minute walk... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, it's close to Bangla if you want to go out and get wasted. Wouldn't recommend for couples but really close to everything if you want to stay some where cheap in Patong. Lots of older men but didn't bother me as I was with my husband and single guy mate. He recommended it as... More

I stayed here for one night and it was ok. Very chilled out place, friendly and just nice. Very cool and attentive staff. Good food and nice pool. Short walk to the beach. The rooms were clean even though the mattress was a bit hard. It has a very nice bar area with good quality pool tables. Great classic rock... More

The pool was not usable and the WIFI signal did not reach my room. I complained but the management was not really interested. There seemed to be a constant flow of 'ladies of the night' leading my friend to call the hotel 'the knocking shop'. I would not stay here again much better hotels in Patong with better price and...

The hotel has a great location, close to the night life but still away from all the noise. The bar has a lovely atmosphere and nice people working there and nice other hotel guests. The rooms however need a freshining up. There are mold on the walls and the roof and I had to change rooms because of the AC... More

You will love the staff, location and the other patrons who make you feel like you're at home! Hard not to understand why they have so many return customers!!! Thanks for the great visit and all the hospitality.

It's close to Bangla road but far away so you have a quiet time, nice pool, good food, get a pool room, you over look the pool when sitting out side, this is the second time I have stayed here, the rooms are a bit dear for what they are like, a little bit run down but still ok,
