“Basic room, friendly staff, shame about the prostitutes...”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

We stayed here for 4 nights when first arriving in Phuket. The rooms are extremely basic and the room we were in had very run down furniture but had a big balcony, fridge etc so was still good. The pool was great and there are a few places nearby for food and drink. The beach, shopping centre and bangla road are about 15 minutes walk away which was fine for us, for some reason people seem to hire scooters to go to the shop and back, we just walked everywhere. On our last night the main light wasn't working in our room but the owner came up straight away to fix it for us which was nice. The only thing we really didn't like was the fact that it seemed perfectly normal to have prostitutes staying at the hotel, it was horrible to see them leaving around lunchtime wearing barely any clothes and leaving with the man who had paid for her time. We have been in SE asia now for nearly 3 months we know what goes on but the majority of the hotels we stayed in had a 'no prostitutes' policy which should be standard procedure if you don't want to offend other people staying at the hotel. For that reason we wouldn't come back.

Reviewed September 28, 2012

it's a clean guest house..also quite cheap. i booked one room and one extra bed (250 baht) for 750 baht per night in September 2012. No deposit. They said it's because the low season now in September. But the guest house quite far from the Patong beach. If walk, it can take 15 minutes. But it's still OK. Near the exchange, laundry, minimart, and restaurant. So it's a good guest house.

We spend a week in Valeros and we really feel as at home, even better because you are in holidays. The owner Iñigo, is always there for any question you've got, he is really friendly and he has good tips to enjoy your stay in Phuket. We asked him for motorbikes and in less than 10 mins we had the motorbikes ready for us and with a good price. The rooms are spacious and clean, the staff who work there is very friendly too. The swimming pool is good to finish your day there having a beer before go to have a dinner.
I am sure if I come back to Phuket I will go there and I recommended the place for everyone, couples, singles, families and groups of friends. If you go to Phuket, don't hesitate to go to Valeros because it really worth it.

Room Tip: Ask Iñigo, is the best tip I can give you, because he is there to make your stay comfortable.

I stayed here for three weeks in may,and found it just right for my needs.The rooms are large,and have everything you need,although i think coffee and tea ficilities would be a bonus,The small pool is clean and is fun to relax beside.There is a small pub just by the main entrance and if you want to eat there is lots of restaurants within a few weters on nanai road. The main hub of Patong is only a 15/ 20 min walk with the same to the beach,I will be staying here again next year when i return.

Room Tip: ground floor is next to pool

I stayed here for a couple of weeks to save money and extend my holiday. I thought the place was great value. Most places this price don't have a pool and they don't have an idea how to run it either. Here the place is well-run by the hands-on owners who are always ready to help. The rooms are spacious and clean. The relaxed, informal atmosphere means you can get to know other guests easily. I rented a bike at the guest house and happily risked my life daily, rather than argue with the tuc-tucs. Strangely the fact that I had not ridden a bike for 30 years did not put me off. This great guest house puts some 3 star hotels to shame.

Room Tip: Just a bit too far for me to walk to the beach but they have bikes for rent
