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...

First impression was poor as the lady checking us in was really unfriendly, however the rest of the staff were fabulous. Great pool area, clean room & good food in the restaurant which was cheap and huge portions. Really good location two minutes from Bangla Road. But quiet at the hotel, perfect.
