We stayed at ibis Phuket Patong for one night when we were our honeymoon. We landed very early at the hotel and the staff was gracious enough to give us a room right away without any check in time concern or extra charges.
We found the hotel staff to be very kind, courteous and helpful. Their English is bad but you can work around that as this is a problem across Thailand.
The breakfast menu was very good and had a good spread. We found it value for money as food is a problem for Indians in Thailand.
The location is very near to the beach but a bit far from the main areas like Bangla Road etc. But, this area has great shops, spa's and safe at night.
I would recommend this hotel for someone who is looking for a hotel in this range.
We did not use the pool but there were quite a few who seemed to have loved the pool.
This is a budget hotel, so if you are expecting wonders to happen, take my word, do not try this hotel.More
