Just return from our phuket trip. and my decision to go with all holiday-inn hotels (patong-express, phi-phi, mai khao) to stay was turn best in such rainy weather.
Ok about express, i really like this property and ppl. this is new hotel with good maintenance. staff is very helpful. if you need early check-in you can inform to Dominic on mail, in our case we were traveling with young kid and informed hotel in advance. you will get prompt reply soon.
Room:- Our room was good enough for 2+1 ppl. and it was facing to mountain. such good scenery in this budget hotel!!! resting chair, balcony, study table, TV, fridge, king size bed all are nice and well placed. I like door operating concept of bathroom, it open such way creating partition between bath place and other area so maximum use :). Airconn are in good condition.
Breakfast:- I really like breakfast system, they are not asking your room number at all !!! and you can take-away juice, coffee in container if you are heading for any early morning outing trip. breakfast was standard and good.
Swimming pool:- we didn't used swimming pool as patong beach is really near and you can enjoy sea and come in hotel. 5-7 min walk. Swimming pool looks good and families were enjoying. pool towel were available in ample amount and you can take towel for beach as well. we used towel on our trip as well.
Staff:- Staff were very good in English and willing to help. i really appreciate their role change in duties, staff on reception you can see severing you during breakfast as well.
Around hotel:- we used massage service near to hotel. service was really good and reasonable. i think 50-100 THB more than patong rate but worth to have it. pharmacy, coffee shops are around hotel and serve well. lot of local food restaurants near to hotel to try out. Banagla road took 15 min walk from hotel. You can hire local taxis from front of hotel.
Over all..we are very satisfied with hotel service and location. definitely we will came back again...
