You are just a short stroll to the night life in Bungalla Rd. The room is very clean, the building is new, the staff are... More

The owner met us personally and the staff were incredibly sweet. Located in the heart of Patong Beach, we found it convienient to get anywhere we wanted by foot... More

Items in the minibar not overpriced at all and sometimes even equivalent to 7-11. Hotel staff was exceptional. They helped carry my bags up the stairs to my room even.... More

The staff are really helpful and friendly. My eyes were infected during my staying at Phuket and bought some eyedrops with Thai explanation. The girl at the reception used a dictionary to translate word by word into my language and tried to let me know which one is suitable for my situation. Very impressive. There's no elevator at the hotel.... More
