“Nice swimming pools, not fancy but cozy hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

The room is clean, we stay on the second floor with the pool view balcony. The staff is nice and friendly. The walking distance to Patong Beach is 10 mins, the hotel have the scooter rental service and the price is reasonable. The hotel itself is not fancy, but it's good enough for its value. My husband and I stayed there for 4 nights and we enjoyed it. I especially like the swimming pools, because they're empty most of the time and there are 2 of them. One is oval shape and gets the sunlight, another one is square and very long and under the shadow. If you wanna play with the water, go to the sunshine one, if you wanna swim, go to the shadow one.

We stayed at Andatel for four nights. Upon arrival, they told us that all deluxe rooms were booked and upgraded us to the pool access room for free
- what a pleasant surprise!!

Breakfast has a good variety, I especially enjoyed their waffles and omelette. But I wished the lobby and dining area weren't in an open air space, I didn't like seeing flies on my table and sometimes on food. The location is great! Only 10 minutes walk to the beach and 15 minutes to Junceylon and Bangla road (it doesn't feel that long since there are interesting shops along the way to keep your eyes busy). The room and everything in the room were super clean. The housekeeping ladies also did a great job at cleaning and tidying our room daily. Overall, I have nothing bad to say about Andatel, I would definitely recommend it to others and come back again when I'm in Phuket!

Went there alone last November and it was great, the hotel rents out motorcycle at reasonable price, something that comes in very handy when getting to and back from bangal and karon beach. The beach is very near and it's the quieter part of patong beach, much cleaner and private. The service was ok, I didn't get to talk much just quick check-in and check-out. Oh and good nice BIG beds.

Location: It's somewhat in the northern part of Rat-U-Thit (which, feels like a big street on Google Map, but it's not). From the airport, you'd hit the hotel first before you hit Bangla (which, is 1km away), so it's a shorter taxi ride compared to most of the rest of Patong. The hotel buildings are set in the back, away from Rat-U-Thit (a good thing; less/no street noise), but the hotel sign can be easy to miss. At a decent (but not fast) pace, it's exactly a 5min walk to the beach (great!).

Hotel (public area): The check-in area/lobby/breakfast room is open-air. It looked older than the hotel room buildings themselves; maybe can use an update/upgrade. There's a free-form pool behind the building that houses the lobby, and another long pool between the two hotel room buildings. I didn't swim in either, but both looked decent.

Room: Pretty standard 3* hotel room, I'd say. It has a small balcony overlooking the long pool (every room does, I think; rooms on ground floor have direct access), which is nice, if you choose to get out there for some fresh air. Shower stall has no door, so the rest of bathroom can get a bit wet. Lighting at sink is insufficient. All in all, I was neither impressed nor depressed.

Staff: Not the most friendly I've ever met in Thailand, but they were OK (breakfast staff was better than front desk).

Breakfasts were included in my room rate, and they weren't bad. The hotel is a very good value, as it's not expensive at all for what you get.

The thing that bothered me the most was the distance (1km, as mentioned) to Bangla. I'm a good walker, so it's not that bad, but it's not convenient, either, if Bangla nightlife is your thing. That said, this hotel is a fair choice if you just want to chill by the pool or at the beach. I'd not recommend it, however, if you intend to hit Bangla frequently.

I was visiting Phuket just for a night as it was completely a business trip. It was a last minute trip so did not have much time to do my research on hotels. I got on patongphukethotel to look for accommodation and thats when I came across Andatel. The pictures looked tempting and definitely offered a decent price considering the location. When I arrived I was greeted well by Thomas who made sure I was well assisted to the room and had no problem checking in. I got a great room with pool access. The beds were really big and comfortable though the toilets were comparatively smaller. Enjoyed the accessibility to the beach and different attractions around Patong. Highly recommend this hotel to all those heading down there.

Great property, our young one loved it the service was really nice though there were some language barrier. The hotel is quite hidden away with old rustic lobby into a new modern room with the swimming pool lounge area in the middle.

The staff were great even with their limited English. The day manager and staff were so wonderful and at one point took us to some shops. The location was perfect, walking distance to everything. Loved it and will be staying there again in my next visit.
