“great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

the apartments are very high spec . great location , very helpful staff and reasonable prices .
Yes there is some noise but easyly fades a little building work on an other property in the street but that does not detract from the great apartments .
Can highly reccomend this property .
What i can not reccomend is the sales team of absolute resorts , i came on a discounted package but with upgrades still paid a reasnable amount , the teams promises of transport to airport , 2 for 1 spa vouchers and discounts outside of the property soon vanished once i did nor sign within 4 hours .
This is a shame the product is good , but needed time to research ., as people should < ref daily telegraph >.
Otherwise great holiday .

Yes location is key to our offering here and I'm glad you enjoyed the resort. Obviously if you booked via an offer then you would have been aware of the conditions attached to that offer and what it included. Despite that I hope you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to hopefully welcoming you back should you chose to visit Phuket once again.

1 week before my stay, I sent an email to Absolute Bangla Suites requesting for airport transfer and I received an reply email from their marketing department that they have arranged for the airport transfer when I arrived. However, to my dismay, there was no vehicle waiting for me and when I tried to contact the hotel, they say they received no request of airport transfer and told me to make my way to the hotel. I would expect the very least that they could offer for the airport transfer but sadly no. In room jacuzzi was dirty with dust all over and I had to clean it throughly before using it. More outreagous was that during the 2nd night of stay, the housekeeping cleaned up my room and when I return in the evening, there was no clean towels provided, not even one face towel. When I call the housekeeping, they still tell me "Why you call so late !", I was so angry that I hanged up the phone and call the front desk instead. Another issue is during check out, I told them that the air dryer was already in the room when I check in, but the front desk insist that it was different type of air dryer placed in the room and also insist that there was laundry bag provided in the room even though I said don't have. They still dare to give me those despise look as though I am a thief. This is absolutely ridiculous and I will never stay there again !

We have checked our records for September 2013 and we had 3 couples staying with us from Singapore but there were no complaints recorded from any of their rooms.

We provide airport transportation to all our guests who book online once provided with the flight details.

The jacuzzis in our suites are cleaned daily by housekeeping who are there specifically to service your room requirements at any time.

Clean towels are provided everyday in every room.

Laundry bags always setup in every room, and rechecked by a supervisor daily and would only be charged for if used.

Absolute Bangla Suites is located at the heart of Patong in Bangla Road. As soon as you come out of the hotel, you are at the centre of night life activities and a few hundred metres away from famous Patong Beach! The hotel itself is almost brand new and modern. Large rooms and awesome spa in each unit. Free WiFi internet access and very clean beds. Friendly staff and top roof swimming pool with beautiful views.

Room Tip: Choose a room that is far from Bangla Road to avoid late night noise!

I was really fortunate and had a chance to go to Thailand for a couple of days, went back to Bangla Suites as I'd been there once before when it had just been completed so it was really nice to go back. I can honestly say they made me feel so welcome and I am really looking forward to going back. The rooms were fantastic- very good quality and a lovely design. With a hot tub in the room you just can't go wrong! Went to the 5th floor bar which is called Climax- that is a really cool place. The food was fantastic, the staff were so friendly and they really made you feel welcome. I'd really like to thank Simon and Dave for really going out of their way to make my stay enjoyable and fun. They are a great asset to Bangla Suites and I can't wait to meet them again so thanks lads. I also had a surprise message from them and the girls on Whatsapp which I really appreciated. It will give me good memories so thank you once again lads. The position of the hotel is fantastic, you can get to where ever you want to go so easily which is very convenient. I can not recommend this hotel highly enough.

We had two weeks hear. Had read some of the reviews on tripadvisor. We had room 307. Yes is was noisey from the disco outside. BUT is was nothing that couldn't be over-come. We found that if we put the tv on low it took away from the noise in the bedroon. We were also told that they are approved for treble glazing which sould be happening soon. We ate a few meals in the rooftop restaurant and found them all to be very nice and very tasty. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. Jaeb the hotel concierge was very helpful. We also had no problem with our housemaid Low either. Would happily stay there again as it is very central to everything. The only down for the whole trip was our night out to Fantasea. we booked our tickets at a street ticket offices and asked for a certain area. When we got to the show after the driver finished getting lost we found that we had seats way in the back of the theatre. But that was not the hotels fault. It's a case of first come first served. So if you get there late through no fault of your own you get a seat were they put you. P.S. FANTASTIC HOTEL

Room Tip: Rooms on the south side away from the disco

Thanks for your great review. It's really all about location so glad you had a wonderful holiday and I shall pass on your kind words to our team at the hotel and the Climax Restaurant upstairs. Let's hope we have the pleasure of welcoming you back next time you visit Phuket and maybe front row seats for the Fantasea.

Had a couple of nights here recently during a business trip. The place seems to lack identity and the market segmentation seems really odd! The hotel itself is located at the end of a run down soi off Bangla Road. Being a no go zone for traffic at night can present it's own issues with check in or out at these times.

The hotel is modern and comfortable with good bars and common areas. It has a rooftop swimming pool that is surrounded by the restaurant which serves some pretty good international food. If you don't want to venture out it's as good a place as any to while away the evening.

The rooms themselves are on the small side but adequate, that said they are comfortable and standard is pretty good, some have Jacuzzi's too!

Staff are generally attentive and polite, no issues there.
