“Greate hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

we stayed at this hotel for a 4 nights and had a grate time.

first of all we like the concept of the hotel, in a place like patong all you really need is a good room to take a shower and have a good night sleep.

breakfast was very basic and we like the option of take away coffee, on our first night because of jetleg we arrived late for the breakfast and the hotel staff was kind enough to get us with eggs that was made specially for us!

at the bottom line we recommend this hotel to anyone that looking for a good place to just stay for the night and be close to the main attraction of phuket.

one more tip is the laundry room that you can use to wash your clothes and dry them in a price of 200 bht

Room Tip: pool view rooms,.

Dear “MissLate”

I was humbled by your comments. Not that I have done all of those items but our team is very proud of our new hotel and the design of th ebuildings, matching with our great location just 2 minutes from the beach and great value for money is working well for our guests. The vertical garden is giving our airy lobby a great touch to relax, glad you liked it.

Thank you for your comments and Stay Smart with us again!

Location: Almost at the end of crowdy Patong Beach, far enogh from nightlife but within walking distance, beach 2 min walking, very close.
Hotel: HIEX standards, new, clean, polite staff, nice detail the "green wall" in the lobby
Room: rooms distributed in 3-floor buildings. Room nice but rather functional, business-hotel like, do not expect any Thai feeling within your room. Comfortable bed, good pillows. Bathroom ok, huge shower.
Staff: ok, friendly but nothing special
Kitchen: breakfast express but ok to start the day. No big variety.

I use this hotel as a one night stopover when traveling to and from the islands. Sometimes you cannot get through all in one day. While I'm not a big fan of Phuket itself, this hotel is a great respite. It is close to restaurants and Bangla Road (the main party street in Phuket), if that's your thing, but also off the main drag so you can get some peace and quiet if you want it.

They have a nice little pool and a nice lobby for lounging. Breakfast was decent, although the morning I went it was so crowded all the seats were taken. Rooms are smallish, but not claustrophobic. And the grounds are clean. Front desk staff is helpful and kind. And the price is right.

Worth staying here if you need to be in Phuket for some reason.

Have you ever stayed in a holiday inn express in Europe ? Cheap cheerful and you know what to expect... Well think again when you come to Phuket. It's luxury wi amazing rooms, great pool and plenty of chil out space. What they have achieved at this very new hotel is the perfect blend of beach resort without fancy eateries. All the food you need is in the local eateries and by not including any in the hotel you have a cost conscious place that feels like 4 star.

Room Tip: Rooms over the pool tend to be a little noisy during the day, but the pool closes at 8pm so it's...

Dear “Mike 1980Zzzzz”

Thank you very much for your great feedback about our Holiday Inn Express Phuket Patong Beach Central. We are very new in South East Asia and are setting a nice benchmark. One of our slogans is Save here - spend elsewhere. There is lot’s of support services around the hotel from shops to restaurants and spa’s. That’s why we do not offer those services at the hotel but as you acknowledge we can offer great rates because of that in a fantastic location.

Stay Smart with us!

Sincere regards,
Dominic

My second experience with Holiday Inn Express brand was nice. Their main USP is the location, located near patong beach, surrounded by all the happening places various eateries, massage parlors and spas, 7elevens, pharmacies and shopping areas.
Hotel room was big and clean, check in was very quick. Very nice pool and lounge. Breakfast was basic. All the toiletries were provided upon request. Wi fi wasn't working properly for two devices.
All and all full value for your money spent. It's not resort kinds but good one if you want t party, be at beach and spend less time in hotel

Great value and Great location are our main signatures supported by great sleeping experience with our comfy beds and pillows and free breakfast and free WiFi.

I am disappointed to hear that you had issues with the internet access as we understand how important this is for today’s guests. Not just free but good connection to be in-touch with friends and family. I will get this checked out.

Hello Readers,

This was my very first time in a Holiday Inn Express. The concept of the hotel is very simple: Self Service. No bell boys, No Room Service, however you still get your rooms done every day, you have Front Desk for Check In and in return you get good price.

We stayed 11 nights and I have to say we enjoyed it every single minute.

As the hotel recently opened, rooms are brand new. Bed is super comfortable and comes with firm and soft pillows (only critic is that when they changed the beddings, they put the pillow covers on the wrong pillows but is a minor thing) ... What we loved was the fact that we normally don't sleep many hours while we are in Australia at home (regardless of having a very expensive bed), however in that hotel we couldn't resist the opportunity to sleep over 10 hours a day!!!!!

Free Internet. At times slow but most of the times fast.

Brekkie was simple but OK. There is an option of Juices, Eggs, Sausage, Rice, Yogurt, Toasts, Fruits, Bread Rolls and Croissants. But do not expect to see the big breakfast as you can get in a 5 stars hotel. Then they have a machine from where you can get your Coffee or Tea (which I have to say I was apprehensive to use but after trying the coffee was really good). They also provide take aways mugs in case you want a quick brekkie and off to the beach.

The swimming pool was fantastic. At times a bit crowded but we were lucky as the guests when we were in there were quiet.

The Hotel has underground parking so if you go with your car, don't worry as the place is secured.

Location is prime as is few steps away from the beach and minutes from Bangla and Jungceylon mall.

They also have Laundry, vending machines for soft drinks and ice machine nearby the lobby.

I will definitely go back (shall my apartment is rented again). I am recommending this hotel to most of my friends.

GU

Room Tip: Swimming Pool View Rooms are more charming.
