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

The hotel is extremely nice, and the staff is vers friendly. The hotel is located close to the beach, and all the nightlife, but is still quiet at Night. The pool area is Nice, and the rooms is just what you want for a nice holiday. I Can highly recommend Thisted hotel.

Clean rooms, right next to Bangla Road for the party, warm and friendly staff and a great pool to lounge around during the day. The Expat Sports Bar next door is a great place to have a few... More

If you enjoy the party scene then expat is a good place to stay. It's a 2min walk to the chaos of bangla road which has everything you would ever need. Room tip: super deluxe. The deluxe room is basically smaller, even the bathroom is smaller. So for the slightly extra charge you will be grateful for the room to... More

My first stay. It's so close to everything and doesn't cost a fortune. Not many younger people stayed here so by Patong standards very quiet but only 4 minutes to JungCeylon and Bangla Rd! Rooms basic but everything works and the staff are super friendly and helpful! The bar is good and the restaurant serves good food at the right... More

Having visited once before I decided to revisit as both the service and facilities were spot on. We stayed in the cheaper guesthouse but the hotel runs a Tuk-Tuk service between the two, free of charge. It's only a couple of minutes drive but it saves you a lot of time and it's a God send if it is raining.... More
