“Amazing Pool and Fantastic Rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights in January 2012. The rooms are amazing - all decked out in car and bike themes. We had the Ferrari room. Room was huge and the fittings were all quality and well thought out design. The swimming pool was amazing and a bonus that it was open 24 hours so you could have a late night swim. This is one of the most funky hotels we've ever stayed at and it's really feel priced. Breaky was pretty average but had dinner here 2 nights and the meals were really good as well. Easy 5 minute walk to the beac, bars. You couldn't find better hotel in Patong !!

Room Tip: Stay on the second floor at the back!

This is a great little hotel in the heart of Patong. It is a quick walk to the beach (less than 10 minutes at an average pace). The hotel and the attached bar/restaurant Nicky's Handlebar are just perfect for a stay in Patong. The rooms are clean and cool (both in temperature and in look and feel) and are very quiet. I was there for a week and never heard any noise from my neighbours during my entire stay. The staff are friendly and helpful, especially Kevin and Kai, and they all make certain you have everything you need to enjoy your stay. Kevin is a wealth of information on what to do and see, where to go and where not to go in Patong.

I would definitely stay at this hotel again when I return to Patong.

This hotel and bar are so well run. We have visited quite a few times over the last few years and it was great to see Nicky and Khai have opened a hotel on the site. The rooms are fantastic - themed along the lines of the name - bikers!. But they are not over the top, and don't think it is a 'low-life' place because it is not. The complex is professionally run and caters to all manner of clients. The food in the restaurant is some of the best on the island...the drinks wonderfully cold..the staff and service never fails to impress....the management always present and inviting. Good on you guys...keep doing what you have been.

Room Tip: Ask for one towards the rear of the building.

Stayed at Nicky's Handlebar hotel in November 2011 for 5 nights and had times that really made our holiday. Nicky's is run by some of the most friendly stuff and a place where you'll meet great people due to the great location and people it attracts. The food the restaurant serves is outstanding with great variety from western foods to thai, i really loved the thai curry's they had! Kevin The hotel manager really aided alot in giving us a great time in phuket taking us to great places in patong to chill out and also giving a range of activities to do during the day through the people he knew in patong. One of the greatest thing's about this hotel is that the staff will come and have a drink with you and go out of there way to make sure you really get the most out of your holiday and experience phuket the way it should be, thanks a lot Kevin and Kai! will definantly be staying at Nicky's Handlebar hotel when i visit Phuket again.

Back in May this year,whilst on Holiday in Phuket and walking along Patong beach i noticed a bright Yello lamborghini parked up with a website address advertising Lamborghini tours, as it was my birthday weekend my g/f decided that she would treat me to a Lamborghini tour. We contacted the the site and turned up next day for the tour - expecting to be at a race track we were both pleasantly suprised that we had turned up to a very unique boutique hotel. The staff made us feel welcome. i was given a tour of the garage which also boasts a ferrari 360, pink cadilac, ford thunderbird and some vintage harley davidson motorcycles. After my trip out in the lamborghini which was amazing we asked if we could look at the hotel rooms. What a totally unique concept all the rooms are named after supercars and super bikes and are in the form of a luxury car workshop. My girlfriend and i who are not petrrol heads were so impressed we decided to check out of our existing hotel and stay here. its a new hotel with many unique and quriky features from the rooms, showerl gel and shampoo's packed in fake oil cans, the sinks made from car wheel hubs, taps and shower heads from spark plugs. as i said earlier im well travelled due to my work and ive been fortunate to stay in some luxury hotel coutesy of my company - but Ive never stayed anywhere quite like this, so much so that my girlfriend and i are actually holidaying here now just for the unique concept of the rooms, facilitys and most importantly the service and the staff from the secuirty guard to to hotel manager everybody is customer focused, this is a busy yet peacefully quiet little oasis tucked away on the 2nd road patong next door to the main post office, 200m from the beach and a 10 minute walk to the jungceylon shopping mall. ive recommended this hotel to friends some of whom have stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed there stay, other who havent stayed have visited and wished they had stayed here.

i would recommend and will stay here again - it has something for everybody from the business man to the family holiday maker

Room Tip: If you are a car or bike fan pick your favourite and BMW and they have a themed room for it.

This is the best place in Patong to stay if you dont want the massive corporate resort style accomodation with the free breakfasts that tempt you to eat what you never usually would eat for breakfast.
Its unique, clean, classy, convenient to everything you will need while staying in Patong.
The staff are all so very helpful, friendly and nothing will ever be a problem. The rooms are all different themed rooms so they are all unique, they are all air conditioned and all have everything you will need and all have easy access to the 24hour opening pool that is so cleverly designed it will blow you away. the attention to detail is so very impressive and you will find new things to marvel at all the time during your stay.
We have stayed here on three seperate occasions over a couple of years and this last trip in June 2011 Nickys Handlebar organised our wedding they organised our 50 guests transfers and accomodation at Nickys Handlebar, they organised all the little things from the flowers, cake, the decorating of the stunning Tritrang beach to a ceremony paradise, the grooms arrival in a ferrari, the groomsmen and our riding guests on Harley Davidsons, the brides arrival in a Lamborghini and bridesmaids in a Mercedes Benz, an awesome lunch reception at the highly acclaimed Baan Rim Pa Restaurant on Kalim Beach and then the dinner reception at Nickys Handlebar. This was no ordinary reception Nickys Handlebar was transformed with rose topiaries everywhere, the tables and seating were decorated so beautifully it would rival world class venues. Then the buffet that was served was the most delicous that the guests including ourselves had ever had. The compliments to the chef were flying everywhere. They supplied a great band and so much more than i can put into words. The banner that was attached to the outside of Nickys Handlebar stating our marriage was jaw dropping and afterwards our guests all signed it and we brought it home as the best ever guest book. Every one of our guests many that had never been to thailand before are all definately going back to stay at Nickys Handlebar. Nicky, Kai, Pinky and Jimmy cant be thanked highly enough for their help with what normally would be a highly stressed event we had none of that, they took care of everything.
A tip book a pool deluxe room but even if your not lucky enough to get one of those the pool is centred around them all anyway.
