“Crappy Hotel”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

The Avantika Boutique Hotel touts themselves as a four star hotel, should just call themselves a comfortable hostel with a small swimming pool. The reception staff were unfriendly and arrogant with attitude.If the hotel was not already paid their expensive fee I would have walked out in the beginning. Buffet Breakfast my foot.Its help yourself to juice, fruit, toast and pastries.With the waiter asking which way the eggs should be cooked. The restaurant staff were however friendly and gracious.
Would not not go back there for free.

We stayed for 5 nights at the Avantika and loved it.

It was just far enough away from the lively part of patong to have a quiet break, but close enough to enjoy the nightlife if we wanted to.

The staff were really nice and friendly and the food was amazing, much nicer than I thought it would be having sampled various UK thai restaurants.

The pool was small but always nice and warm.

I love thailand and would recommend the Avantika.

This is a great hotel of your wanting a relaxing holiday close to everything but not in the centre of the hustle and bustle. I stayed in the grande deluxe sea view room on the top floor. The view was very nice you can see the entire Patong beach and the balcony is a good size. The room was kept nice and clean and is nicely set out with a good size bathroom. It has a nice spacious comfortable feeling and is very quiet and private. Its not a very big hotel so the pool is not huge and breakfast buffet does not have a huge selection but the chef will make whatever you like to order. I normally prefer bigger hotels with more atmostphere but as I was in Thailand for surgery it was a great place to recover and relax.

We stayed here for 8 days in March and enjoyed our time there. We had an initial problem with our room location and hardness of the bed due to back problems but all it took was a phone call to the young lady at the desk and she was do accommodating and changed our room and had them do something to the bed that made it outstanding for me. The restaurant personnel was also very helpful. Had some issue with understanding each other but we both tried and it worked . The only negative is something they have no control over and that's the drain at the street level which has a really bad smell but it doesn't come into the hotel or the rooms so its not too bad. All in all it was a lovely stay and we would definately stay there again if we ever travel back to Phuket in the future. Very good price as well .

Read the reviews only after I came back from Phuket and was relieved that my experience at Avantika wasn't that bad as some had reported, especially in terms of service and cleanliness. Service staff were polite and helpful and they were quick to send down a maintenance guy to fix our window blind which was faulty. A guard was always in front of the hotel which was not something I expected given the size of the hotel.

We stayed on the ground floor with a back door that leads directly to the pool which was pretty cool when we need to go for swim in the morning and when I need to have a cigarette outside at night.

The beach is right outside the hotel and its only a 10 to 15 mins walk to Bangla road and the new Jangceylon shopping mall. 7-11 and Familymart is beside the hotel in case you need to buy anything.

Will stay at Avantika if I ever visit Phuket again!

Stayed at this hotel after reading mixed reviews, we checked in and our room was a deluxe pool room where you walk into the pool from the verandah, the room was large and clean, this hotel is in a great spot at the end of patong beach but only a short walk to where all the action is, my only complaint about this hotel is the staff except the room cleaners they are not very friendly or helpful, the food from the restaurant due to a lack of understanding English is quite ordinary, the house keeping staff were lovely, breakfast was fine a good selection to get the day started and a choice of eggs cooked upon order

The term "boutique" hotel misled us into thinking it would be family owned, clean and friendly,on top of the "deluxe seaview" and the "special offer" which sounded attractive:the price we paid being upmarket as compared to a standard 4-star hotel, we were certain that we would get value for money. Helas,quite to the contrary! We faced a run down, or rather not maintained establishment, on the seafront road but withdrawn, which resulted in: no breeze, damp and hot interiors, as if we were in the rainy season, while outside it was nice and dry! Other unpleasant features:the pool constantly in the shade, just like the tiny balcony, with little view and steam-bath feel:despite the heat, swimming suits did not dry! In addition to the permanent smell of humidity, the room was plain dirty:thick dust layer all over; a couple of towels had large permanent stains!We pointed this out to the lady of the front desk who was showing us the room. Despite our complaint, the room was not cleaned until we had to ask again, hours later. By way of apology for the inconvenience, the hotel manager offered a ride with the hotel shuttle to nicer beaches outside Patong, on two occasions, which we appreciated. Nonetheless,the front office staff, except for one employee, the doorman and the bell boy(who were smiling and nice), were not pleasant or helpful at all,not even polite, throughout the stay. (The only hotel in my whole life where nobody says hello at the reception desk when a hotel guest walks into the lobby).Things did not improve in the following days:breakfast's quality was unacceptable: no fresh bread, a ridiculous little oven (5 minutes to toast a slice), tasteless omelettes; yogurts,butter and jam in little plastic containers like the cheapest continental breakfast; last but not least: two Italian coffee machines, but no espresso or cappuccino available as they were broken down! The owner assured us they would be repaired, but to no avail!The last day, after check out they let use the spa room in the evening to take a shower and change before going to the airport, which was a nice gesture. Of course,the place was dirty as it had been used and noone had cleaned it afterwards, but we were accustomed to the house policy of sloppy management and sloppy service by then...and we were leaving the premises anyway. To cut a long story short:AVANTIKA?NO THANKS!

Room Tip: Top floor has larger balconies and better view. If you go in low season you might pay less and get a...
