A good overall place to stay if you really want to be on Patong beach - I was last here 25 years ago it is much changed and not for the better! The location is perfect location right near the beach, near the night life but not noisy. All the staff are very helpful and friendly and the free self service tea and coffee is provided in the lobby each morning, which is a nice touch. It represents excellent overall value for money, but you DO have to realise that you pay for what you get, there are no frills at this price - although wifi is included don’t expect sea view (or any view), a pool, and so on – go to a big chain and pay at least five time more it that’s what you want. If I were to go back to Patong I would definitely go back here, but I am not sure if I really want to do Patong again- it has lost its sense of Thai identify and is a massive tourist trap mainly for Russians and Arabs.
