I was expecting the hotel to be at least a little bit decent, considering it was more than twice the price of the plush 5* hotel we stayed in while in Bangkok. I could not have been more wrong. There was mould on the bedsheets, mould on the shower curtain, mould on the curtains. Stains on the bedsheets and pillows.... More

The FX Resort has been rebranded as 'The Avenue Hotel', which is a much more suitable name given that it's a hotel, not a resort. It's not far from the main road and only a 6-minute walk to the beach, but it's in an awkward area of Chaweng that feels like the type of place gentlemen come to relieve themselves... More

If you want to spend no time at all at your hotel than this place is completely adequate, learn some Thai before you come as the English is very limited, requests like "extra pillows" come with a reply of "maybe later" and never arrive-not a huge problem but defiantly on the budget side of hotels, a bit run down and...

We stayed only one night in the hotel unfortunately! The rooms were so nice that I really wanted to stay a few more days! Rooms were big! With big cupboards and loads of storage space for luggage! And a mid size refrigerator! Lighting was adequate and all of it + the air conditioner was controlled by a single remote unit... More

We stayed here for one night whilst travelling through Thailand. Hotel was lovely, really nice clean and fresh rooms and also found reception staff very good. The hotel is in agood location, just a short walk (about 10 mins) to the main area with all the bars, shops and restaurants. Would definitely use this hotel chain again when travelling.

We stayed in a group of 8 at this hotel as part of a round trip. So far the hotel was the best on the trip and I can't really complain. Our room was clean and the washroom also. The location is ok, 5-10 minutes walk to the main food, shopping and party area. If you would like to stay... More

Room The FX is offering two types of room - the Superior and the Deluxe. There arent much different between this two. The Superior is slightly smaller then the Deluxe. According to their website, the Superior (24sqm) is 3sqm smaller then the Deluxe (27sqm). Nothing too much to compare other than size of these rooms. Personally, I would not advise you... More

This hotel was quite good. I loved the room and the friendly staff. The only low point I would say it is that is 10 minutes away from the beach (20 if you are looking for the more populated areas) and 20 minutes away from the centre (Green Mango Club on Beach Road) so I'd say it is quite a... More

I imagine this looked like a very nice hotel in the first couple of months it was open. It was passable when I stayed there; however, this place is going rapidly downhill. Six months from now it will be a total dive unless something drastic changes. Everything looks like it was new a year ago but has not been cleaned... More
