Well!!! if there is a place on earth where all the actions begin and the price point is also low, then its got to be this Hotel, Rico's. Its at the right spot on the Bangla street (Bangla street is where the party doesnt stop till 5am). It the right place if you want to party. There are 1 dance club just below it and one opposite it. Tight club. The beach is hardly 10 min walk from the hotel. The staff is very good and cooperative. This hotel is the best place for friends and If you really wanna have fun then this is the place to be.

Stayed here for two nights before we flew home. Research Bangla road before booking this hotel. The hotel itself it a great central location to the wild night life, shopping and beach. Will not stay here again because Bangla is not our scene, however I would recommend the hotel.

I went to Phuket for the first time and didn't know what to expect.
The hotel was hidden a bit but not hard to find. It's a good hotel, clean and the rooms are good. The reception was actually very helpful and gave lots of great advice on things to do.
My room was good size and equipped with everything needed.
Outside the hotel there were a number of restaurants and a hooka place which was great. Down the alley is the famous Bangla street where everything happens.
The location was perfect and not even a one minute walk from the hotel.
Patong beach was also a 5 minute walk hence it was good in all aspects. As for value for money again it was great and I was really happy from all sides.
The hotel was good; service was good and location was great.
I highly recommend it from all sides for singles. I don't think it's a place for families but for single people its great.

AUD$48 to stay in the heart of Bangla road district, seemed too good to be true, but I found this place was exactly as represented on the booking site.

The room was huge, although perhaps that space is not used to its optimum, eg the bathroom had no bath, yet could easily have accomodated one.

Of course, noise is what you would expect, it is located at the end of a short lane running off Bangla Road, and so I will observe rather than complain that it was noisy. I didnt care, it comes with the territory, and I wanted the experience for one night at least, of being able to say I stayed in Bangla Road (effectively)

I give it 3 stars, which equates to 'average' but if I could, I'd rate it 3.5, as it is much better than average, but not extending as far as 'very good'....If the location appeals, its outrageously good value for money

Room Tip: not much point asking for a quiet room here. You go in to this hotel with your eyes wide open. Its Bangla Road after all. If you can sleep to the rhythm of a doof doof beat, its great.

The staffs were marvelous, friendly and helpful.
Our first night was interrupted by the loud noise from the club below.
Our room was on 1st floor as we needed triple bedroom. The room was HUGE and SPACIOUS. If only the noise were tolerable, we would have stayed in that room till our last night. Such a big regret.
We asked to the change the room for the next day and the staffs arranged it for us without much hassle. If you are a party goer and will come back to hotel after you're done with partying, then it's OK. If not, i guess you can mention to have upper floors room when you are making the reservation. The noise is barely noticeable on upper floors.

The location is smack in the middle of Bangla Road, so expect large crowds and nightlife. Near to 7-Eleven, Bangla Mall & Jungcyelon Mall.

Value for money, spacious room and friendly service. Will choose Rico's again for our next visit.

Room Tip: Ask for upper floors and facing the back - 2nd & 3rd floor if you value your sleep.
