I have stayed in the Expat hotel on many occasions, the rooms are large and clean all around a central pool. The bar is the outdoor style with a good selection of food and drinks. I found all the staff friendly and very helpful. The location is fantastic really quiet but only 4 minutes walk from all of Patongs nightlife.... More

The Expat continues to impress! It's a 3 star at best and certainly not the place for a family or romantic holiday but for a group of blokes or if you are travelling solo it's great value!! Situated near the eastern end of Bangla Rd you have a 10 minute walk to the beach! JungCeylon is only 5 minutes away!... More

Great place to layback after a hard night out on the town. Crash out next to the pool on the lounge chairs. Resteraunt is only 10 metres away where... More

Just returned after spending 1 week at the Expat. The rooms are basic but with everything you need. Bed was firm but very comfortable and air con was quiet and worked well. The hotel is brilliantly located. Only 10 minutes walk to the beach and much less to Soi Bangla and all the action if you want it. Very little... More
