“Great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We were three friends staying for 14 nights at Ricos´s. We paid 200 Euros TOTAL for all three, including wi-fi...crazy when you get nice rooms, clean, great staff, nice owner, great location. We didn´t party that much even if the hotel is kind of a hotel where partypeoples live. Even though we didn´t party we liked it very much because of the location and the GREAT value.
Will visit again!!

When you want to stay in the centre of Patong close to the nightlife and the beach Rico's hotel is the best option.The location is perfect,the rooms are nice and staff is very helpfull.The beach is only 150 meters from the hotel so you don't need a tuk tuk or taxi to go around.

I still love my home away from home whenever I come to Phuket. Rico's hotel has once again never failed to provide me with my essential needs (airport transfer, elevator, free WIFI, laundry service, excellent daily housekeeping). Love the affordable rates and love the location most of all. As a frequent traveler who loves the entertainment and the nightlife, this hotel is perfect for me... :D

There's no such thing as sleeping early in Phuket, with all the entertainment just next door to the hotel, who can resist?! I know I couldn't! Besides, i can still sleep after enjoying the nightlife...hahahaha...

So for those of you loves to sleep, you can either wear ear-plugs, or sleep at 4am bcos thats when the entertainment ends. Just an early reminder to anyone who is a very light sleeper...

I'm coming back to Phuket again end of this year (and will always come back!), and Rico's is the place for me!!! :D

Room Tip: This hotel is for those who loves the nightlife and doesn't bother to sleep early.

I stayed here for three nights..the rooms were very nice. The two girls in reception during the day were very helpfull. But at night the girl on reception was useless and ignorant. Then i could not sleep as the nightclub across the road was blaring music until nearly 4 am. Then when i finally got some sleep the cleaners in the hotel would start work at 7:30 am and would make ridiculous and excessive noise while cleaning rooms. This included shouting down the hallway to one another and dragging furniture along the floor in the room above me!!! It sounded like i was sleeping in a fully operational building site!! So for 3 nights i only got a total of maybe 9 hours sleep!! Not to mention the odd cockroach here and there.

We stayed 3 Nights in Patong and after going home it was alwasyawesome to walk only 2 minutes home to our Hotel.
Even if the Hotel is located in the middle of the Bangla Road it is still a quiet place.
The rooms are decent.
Internet was free of charge witch is not commont in Thailand.
The Rico's Hotel does not serve Breakfast but around the Hotel are good coffee places.
Like "au bon pain " " coffee shop".
Good start for our vacation.

You can't ask for a better place than Rico's, if you are travelling in a group of friends and want to party hard in patong/Phuket. This was my first visit to Phuket and glad we picked this hotel. Its in the center of Bangla street, which is a crazy crazy party place. Other travelers posted that its too noisy at night and couldn't sleep, but that was not an issue for us, as we came back to the hotel usually at about 4 or even later :).
The hotel staff were friendly and courteous. Rooms are pretty decent and the room cost were even better, for the location it is in.

Booked 2 rooms with 5 of us from 29 June to 1 July. Was given rooms at 1st floor and was worried about the noise at night but it was not so bad in the end. Of course, you can hear the music from the room but my expectation was far worse than that so it was a good experience in the end. Arrived early in the morning and was very happy to be given early check in. We really needed a short rest and shower at that time since we booked a city tour at 9AM.

Room was clean, had all the basic amenities and another thing we were very happy about was the complimentary extra bed. Upon entering the room, the extra bed was ready even before we arrived. Comfy beds and pillow, good TV channels selection, air-cond was very cool and quiet.

Location was very good. Nearby Patong Beach, Jungceylon and of course, the infamous Bangla Road.

Only bad thing is on the morning of our check out, I think a group just came back from partying and was very loud outside our room. Talking loudly and banging the doors. It was a good thing we had to check out early and was not very disturbed by them.

Overall a good experience and would definitely return for another stay with them in the future.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, you could request for a higher floor room and rooms on the left side.
