I stayed at this hotel for 10 days in mid January and it felt like my home away from home. The staff were always so welcoming and happy to help in any way they could. The complimentary breakfast was a great way to start the day, I loved the fresh fruit and bakery goods on offer.
The brand new hotel itself is well thought out in it's design features, with many electrical outlets that today's hi tech travelers will love; not only for the number but for the fact that most of them are also universal outlets - no adapters needed!
The beach is a mere 100m away on Thaweewong Road, where you will also find lots of great restaurants and markets as well as road side food hawkers (try a banana pancake!). It is also a 5 - 10 minute walk to the shops of Jungceylon or the madness that is Soi Bangla at night time.
The one let down, for me personally, being a wheelchair traveller, is that currently, there is no access to the amazingly beautiful pool deck. I did bring this to the attention of the hotel and was very happy that they arranged the use of another pool during my stay, which was very much appreciated, and, they assure me, their engineers are looking into how to making their pool accessible as it was an unintentional oversight.
Because of this, and the rest of their amazing accessible features I am still happy to give this review a full 5 stars as I believe that this hotel really sets the standard for the Holiday Inn Express Brand.
I would happily stay here again if holidaying in Patong, Phuket!
