“Great staff, comfortable room, value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

Love this place. We felt at ease right from the start which is really saying something as we have stayed at numerous places over many trips to Patong. This was a relaxing stay, largely due to Mally and his wife as they are very helpful and caring.There are some stairs, so if you have problems with them it is something to keep in mind. It is a 20 min walk to Jungceloyn shopping centre and another 5 or 10 to Bangla Rd but its an easy walk, or 200 Baht set fee for a tuk-tuk anywhere in Patong Beach. We will definitely be back.

From the moment we arrived Mally and his wife couldn't do enough for us. The rooms are very spacious and kept very clean. The wifi is very fast compared to most places. Everything is in a short walking distance but far enough away that the nightlife doesn't keep you awake. The bar down stairs is quality, Man utd themed. I can't recomend the place highly enough and will definitely be returning.

Stayed in Artha's guest house, and Mally made all the difference. He was kind, generous, and was willing to help in any way possible. The place is basic but very clean and convenient, so perfect for those who wish to have a base in Phuket. No need for swimming pool as the beach is very close. Perfect place to stay and not a bad thing to say about my stay there.

There is a common theme for the Artha Guesthouse.....Mally and his outstanding hospitality! From the minute you arrive, Mally is on-hand to welcome you and ensure he can accommodate your every need. Where to go and what to do were our questions and Mally has the answers! The rooms are spacious and kept clean. As most have said, its about 10 to 15min walk to the centre of Patong and to the beach, so very convenient! We spent some time in the bar downstairs, which is decorated in Man Utd colours, and all the guests and locals equally offered a warm welcome. No question we will stay at the Artha again. Many thanks for everything Mally.......

Last week I had the distinct pleasure of staying at this superb Guest House with my friends. Quiet hotel, friendly and helpful staff not to forget rooms are spacious indeed. It has got a refreshingly new reception and bar design in the theme of Manchester United. There is free wifi which was great too! All in all, it was a fabulous stay. The location was also great; it's walking distance to a number of restaurants and malls. We really enjoyed our stay and will certainly be back.

Book now. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed!!!

It was my 2nd trip to Phuket and the choice of stay ensured it was one of the best holidays I've ever had. We were 5 lads from KL, Malaysia with a weekend getaway on mind. With all the wonderful reviews in here, it was not tough to decide on Artha, but the incredible thing is, when I look back, the experience surpassed the expectations on all accounts. For starters, our late night flight was further delayed due to some reason but there he was Mally at his door, waiting for us as if we were a part of his family. I mean what a warm welcome does to a holiday can never be overrated. That followed a detailed but prompt tour of the rooms and the amenities along with the basic do's and dont's. The rooms as everyone already mentioned are on the larger side with a couch, tv, mini fridge, sink, wardrobe, A/C & an attached bathroom with warm water. It doesnt take long to notice that cleanliness is given a high priority at this property and we couldnt have been more pleased with the presence of a balcony (room no.1) overseeing the street in front. Mally's Bar was the highlight and I enjoyed my football conversations with the host and a few other guests over a beer and enjoyed a couple of English games as it was the weekend. Us being 5 guys; the going ins and outs was rather all over the place, but the separate entry ensured no one was disturbed (at least I hope so). Mally helped us get 3 bikes from an adjacent dealer and also helped us with the "where to go" and "what to do"s. I cannot even begin to count the small little things we kept asking throughout the trip and how our host always helped.

Apart from all that is already being said what stood out for me was the calm disposition of Mally. The fact that you can tell that his attitude was not part of any show or a hospitality gimmick and that he took genuine interest in the well being of his guests and often went out of his way almost giving the feeling its a home not a hotel. Which brings me to the single downside of our stay. It ended, well darn way too soon. Mally you gave us more than what all 5 of us went looking for. I am missing Phuket terribly and Artha guesthouse is a big reason we will return. VERY SOON.

Room Tip: Choose any :) But if you're a light sleeper choose one that is not facing the main street. We di...

Being my first time to Phuket, i could not have found a better guesthouse and location. The rooms are big, bright, clean, cable tv, air condition and big comfortable beds. The location is ideal, not far from the main strip and all the madness.
The staff were simply fantastic, everything we required was only a question away from day trips to motorbike hire. Especially Mally, a big man united fan to put it quitely. The bar was always buzzing during match days, the usual banter and good spirits...

I have to say i loved Phuket and my stay was made especially easy due to the location and the welcoming staff i encountered at Artha Guesthouse

See you again soon,
Cheers Mally
