Have stayed in this hotel about 8 times in the last 9 years. On every occasion I have found the staff to be warm and friendly. The rooms are cleaned daily, and staff have quickly sorted out minor problems evident. The hotel is situated on Soi Sansabai, very close to Bangla Road, and so becomes a bit noisy between 2-3,...

Our first impressions was really good. Friendly staff nice room lovely little place to stay. When we arrived we booked 2 nights but decided to ask if we could check out after 1 night as we needed to get into bangkok to the vietmanise embassy. The lady ( although not impressed ) was okay with refunding us the second night.... More

During low season I paid 880 Baht for the deluxe room at the back with sliding glass doors to a tiny mini balcony. Really a very good value because the room was large, wifi super fast, very cold A/C, ceiling fan, great shower, fridge, wardrobe, table and chairs. Lots of natural light comes in the big glass doors which is... More

I spent two weeks staying at this hotel and I was very happy with my stay. The owner and his staff were excellent, very friendly and helpful. My room was cleaned and changed every day and the only complaint with my room was the shower that had a short curtain that wet the whole bathroom floor every time I had... More

So, I didn't stay here on my trip (biting my lip). I actually stayed across the street at the Yorkshire Inn for my 10 night 11 day holiday; however I must say the breakfast at the Orchid Residence was a tasty treat. Not only did the morning fare save my pocketbook, but the #11 with chili sauce tantalized my tastebuds... More

I have been visiting Phuket 3-4 times a year for the past 10 years and I normally stay at a small cozy B&B in Soy Sansabai (rated elsewhere). This time I was a bit tardy with my reservation and unfortunately my regular place was fully booked. They did however suggest Hotel Orchid Residence and even called and arranged a room... More
