This hotel reminded a lot of a hostel but without the social atmosphere. It's a solid 30 minute walk to the beach/main strip in Patong and it's not an easy or pleasant walk. There are almost no restaurants around the hotel. The room was small with no window. It smelled damp and this attracted a number overnight bug visitors and mosquitoes. The sheets were rough, the bed was tough and the shower design is less than idea. The staff are not particularly helpful; I was surprised to see they had a serious lack of local knowledge. The place is cheap and it is at least quiet and away from the craziness of Bangla road.
