Very good accomadation,set back from the beach, 10 minutes walk and centrally located, stayed there the first week it openend and stayed for one week,the owner and her daughter were very polite and put on some food in the evening on new years eve. The room was excellant with a good veiw over the north end of the beach. Quite in the evenings when i stayed there so a good nights sleep was assured,bangla road is only 10-15 minutes walk away, will possibly stay there again if i go back to Phuket this December. yours truly .

the room was small but clean - had cable tv, comfortable bed and free wifi. we happened to get a room on the 4th floor with no lift (to climb up the stairs after a whole day of tour under the hot sun was not funny). u may need to put that into consideration.

however, the lady who handled the tour booth deserves the credit for making our phuket stay worthwhile. other than providing excellent tour recommendations, she gave directions of places to shop and eat. always smiling and accommodating. a total opposite to the girl behind the hotel reception in the afternoon - loud, defensive and obviously rude. we even saw her quarrelling with a guest (european lady) at the reception! a total holiday spoiler!

would i be here again? i dont think so... i would get the hotel next door but frequent the tour-booth for service

Room Tip: if you really need any help, the guy working the night shift is polite and more accommodating

I stayed at the Bird Cage in January 2012 for five nights. The staff was immensely helpful. I wanted to stay another night but they were full, they offered to find me another room in a different hotel (I ended up staying with them when someone cancelled). They helped me book different excursions, gave me some fantastic recommendations on where to eat, and were super friendly. It was a bit of a challenge to find the hotel as the taxi driver got lost.

The rooms were clean, cleaned daily, and the perfect size for a singleton or a couple. The hotel is close to everything (beach, bangla street, restaurants, shopping, nightlife). The hotel isn't all that fancy, no pool, or great gathering area, but there are so many places around it for that it didn't matter. The beds were a little hard, but thats true of everywhere in Asia I've noticed. I had a fantastic stay with them and would book there again in a heartbeat.

Stayed 5d4n at this hotel. There is no breakfast served, however there are many eateries outside the hotel, so not a problem. It is near the bangla street abt 5-10mins walk away, but from the hotel, i could not hear any loud music or noises, so it is a pretty good stay.

This hotel has laundry cleaning services which they charge you by the weight of laundry, not by pieces and depending on the weather and time that was given to them.
I got my clothes back, clean n folded neatly in a plastic bag n there is a nice fragrant on the clothes too. If i recall correctly, i pass the laundry to them in the afternoon, and they are done by the next day evening. Im impressed! The price for laundry service is cheap as well! I figure after posting this, the demand will increase n perhaps they might take a longer time in future. But in a beach area, a hotel who does laundry in a clean n cheap manner really does help to lighten my load.

The bed is comfortable, tv has alot of channels. The toiletries are basic. The room wall is kinda thin though, so do have courtesy to minimise the noise when talking n walking along the corridor.

Staff are friendly n helpful. n there are alot of activities brochures in the hotel lobby. Only the room has AC. Would come back to this hotel again.

You get what you pay for. So we were fully aware of the type of accommodation we were getting. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was smaller than I expected, just enough for a double bed. We are very picky with cleanliness so it was tolerable for us. But the only negative thing I can say was we could detect a sewer smell from a certain part of our room at times. Overall all we were just looking for a cheap place to crash while in Patong but yet decent and this was it.

No frills hotel. Rooms just big enough but neat & clean. Not much of room service. Daily cleaning was good and taken care. Very Good location - all locations are easily accessible. Extremely affordable rates. Very near to Bangla Road in Phuket.
