Clearly any of the 92,000 people who read my reviews know that l'm a straight shooter and here I'll be no different. However, this hotel must be reviewed in perspective and rated accordingly. The Expat is not claiming 5 star status, rather it knows exactly what it has to work with and does the best with with what it has... More

Me and my two friends decided to get a room in this hotel. The room was small but it's clean. It has mini refrigerator full of drinks and other snacks though we didn't touch any of it since it's a bit pricey. Anyway, the location is good. It is near Bangla road and Patong beach. Friendly staff. Good for budget... More

This is not an expensive hotel, and with that in mind, I can say that my wife and I didn`t have anything to complaint about. The room had a fan and the always '8with the wife) popular aircon. More popular is the cooler for me, wich can contain a 6-pack like it was ment to be. The pool is very... More
