So you fancy coming to Patong? Well Patong is a lot of things - It's an Asian experience, it has a strange sort of dirty charm for want of a better description - but for me and many others, its a total party destination.
Yes there's a beach, but frankly if you want a beach holiday in Phuket, then better maybe in Kata or Karon, much cleaner.
Patong is brash, it's in your face, and it's the biggest "laugh" of a holiday you can have.
So why the C&N?
Well location is everything, and this hotel has it. A mere stagger from the madness of Bangla Road, right in the thick of things. Very nearby are some of the best eateries in the resort.
It's reasonable - you get a lot for your money. They even include breakfast (OK, who on earth makes it to breakfast in Patong haha). If you make it there though, its good - very welcome.
The staff aren't the best I've met in Patong, but they're efficient and good.
There's free wifi...granted it's a bit hit and miss at times though unless you're in the lobby...hence people sat around at times on laptops.
There are often promotions on the price, making it even more of a bargain.
Phuket airport can be a crazy place, with taxi scams going on outside. C&N though have a free pickup if you book more than four days - so go for it.
The rooms - bit dated really and well in need of an upgrade, but they're functional. Comes with a minibar, which you can just use to put your own drinks in from the 7-11
One bad thing for me - the beds are rock hard. I asked if they could do something and in the morning they came and changed the mattress - big improvement.
In all, it's a great hotel - not a brilliant hotel, but a great one. Give it a refurb and it could be another level entirely, but then maybe it would cost more.
ps- sensitive to noise - ask for a room at the back, it's much much quieter - but the view is shockingly boring - back of another hotel.
