After reading reviews of this hotel prior to our Phuket trip, I decided to contact the hotel for reservations. Emails were consistent up until our arrival. We were warmly greeted by Marco and Franco who helped carry our luggages inside! The hotel room itself is pretty standard for a budget hotel. Showers were hot, rooms were cleaned EVERY single day! Location is GREAT, about 10-15 minutes walk to the beach (maybe a bit far walk but you're in Thailand, might as well enjoy the walk and explore the streets!), a block away from Jungceylon Mall and 2 blocks away from busy Bangla Road.. far enough to avoid the noises at night but close enough to walk and enjoy the nightlife without paying for cab. Banzaan Market is just 2 minutes away, we went there to eat dinner every night! A variety of selection on street food, drinks, mini shopping.
Downstairs from the hotel also offers you a menu on breakfast and dinner if you wanted to eat in the hotel for a decent price. Have a beer in eating area too if you'd like with access to a complimentary computer & wifi, as well as a TV. Service was great! Front desk staff, cleaning ladies and the owners made our stay wonderful.
Only complaints during our stay was one night we left some snacks out on the bed while we went out and came back to a herd of little tiny ants on our bed at 3AM. We told the night shift guy and he helped us replace the sheets and let us know he will let the owners know first thing in the morning. We never seen ants again once the sheets were changed and cleaned. But that definitely did not ruin our stay in such a friendly hotel! Also, our air conditioner was dripping water but was fixed after we let the owners know.
Great stay, would love to stay here again next time I return to Phuket. Thanks Marco and Franco for the warm greetings every morning and a "good night" every night! To the wonderful front desk lady that made our stay enjoyable and comfortable. We will definitely be back :)
