The prices are very good for what you receive. The rooms are on the smaller size but well maintained and clean. The staff was friendly, the bar was a joyful place to be and all in all we had a good stay.

Was that impressed i left my other hotel early to stay here last few days of trip. Friendly and fun staff, with no overpriced drink fees ie buy barmaid a drink and it costs same as your own drink. Rooms were clean and modern and to top it off a wee pool and resting room at top.

Staying across the road at Hemingways. We had to check out the bar across the road. Great vibe. Mainly older men staying here who have been great to have a beer with. The girls behind the bar are always happy and great service

excellent stay for 5 nights as a group, including couples. As with most reviews here, i can stress that you get what you pay for. Its terrific value considering its location which is basically close to everything need in patong. No wasting money on taxis or tuk tuks...walking distance to major shopping mall, night markets, bangla road and the beach....
