5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

We loved it here, the rooms were super clean and spacious. The staff were extremely friendly, relaxed and helpful, And it was close to everything we needed, massage, motorbike hire, beaches, huge food market and town centre. We had breakfast here most mornings as we found that they did the best coffee and was the closest we could find to an 'English breakfast' bacon and eggs - not rice and noodles :D The rooms were also very affordable compared to others that we stayed in that were expensive and disgusting! We stayed here twice, once when we first got to Patong and second when we returned from Krabi, I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else in Patong after receiving such good service here. We look forward to visiting again soon. Many thanks to maddalena and her staff from Sandra, Nick and Xavi

If i ever plan to come back to Phuket, Nirvana Inn is the place where I'd prefer to stay. Hardly 10 minutes walking distance from Patong beach and Bangla road (the most happening place in Phuket). They rendered their best possible services to us. Both Italian lads were fabulous plus that Thai lady was quite helpful.

My boyfriend and I found this place on trip advisor, searching for budget hostels as our trip winds down. If there has been anything bad to say about it here, they must be mistaken, because we have come back three times. The first when we arrived from Bangkok, the second when we came back from Koh Phi Phi so said bf could recover from his wisdom teeth removal, and then the third time after we returned from a second Phi Phi trip. The people who own this place are helpful, friendly, and relaxed. It is close enough from the beach that you're able to walk there in 20 minutes, avoiding the taxi drivers (they won't go lower than 200 baht). The room was clean, spacious, included AC, a tv, fridge, large bathroom with a shower/curtain. I'm also kind of nit-picky about sheets being clean, and they were crisp and white :) Each time we checked in, the towels were shaped into something cool, like swans, or flowers, or elephants. I'm a sucker for that stuff! Overall, we actually talked about how impressed we were with our stay.

Room Tip: If you like dogs, they have an aging black lab, who barks, but immediately wags her tail and accepts...

It was our pleasure to have you here. When you meet travelers rather than tourists is always a pleasure. Right spirit, the ability to overcome small difficulties and enjoy Thailand with a spirit free from bias.
I hope to see you again

Run by a very sweet Italian lady. About 1.5 Kms from patong beach it is ideal for people on a shoestring budget. The rooms are spacious clean and hygienic. The owner is very friendly. Particularly good for young people travelling in a group. We were 4 friends in our early 20's and we got a room with 2 bunk beds and a double bed for 1314 thb for 2 days.
A great value for money
Cheers!

We are very pleased to hear that our rooms for 4 or 3 people are so appreciated by guests.
We thought to offer the possibilty to enjoy a cosy atmopshere at a cheap price.

Thank for you kind words

Run by an expat, quite a decent hotel. All charges are transparent. Aircon does double time with no effect though. It is in close proximity to all the so called "happening places " in phuket, however we didn't find anything happening at all. Rooms are spacious and beds are good. No telephone in room which means no room service. Not the very best but good value for money.

Nice hotel, clean and friendly staff. The owner is also very helpful.
Anyway ... Nice location away from center but 5 min by motorcycle.
We enjoyed our stay at the Nirvana Inn!
If we go back to Phuket we WILL get back there.
