“Great Hotel in The Centre of the action”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

This hotel is great, clean, comfy and right in the middle of everything you need in Patong. Downstairs there is laundry and a convenience store as well as a fantastic tailor David John Collection. I had business shirts made here and there are excellent quality and being just down stairs its extra convenient to get to for fittings. The downstairs pool is a little small better for families. The rooftop pool is large and offers 270 degree veiws of Patong and the ocean. The staff are fantastic and very helpful. The hotel is around a 5 - 10 minute walk to Bangla RD and 10-15 walk to the beach. Bars and restaurants are a stones thorw from the hotel. Room service and restaurant closes a bit early but avoid the extra tax and walk down the road. Junceylon Mall is a 5 minute walk from the hotel . We paid $27 for the room and its fantastic value for money. If you are in the new building in a standard room try to get on the 6th floor towards the road or the 7th or 8th floors. These have ocean veiws anything lower is a building wall. They were very accomadating to us rolling in at 3am blind drunk and always checked if we were ok. They will greet you in the morning and check to see if you need a taxi or any help with tours. Check in was easy and quick. The rooms are a good size and have everything you need. The bathrooms are a bit of an odd design with shower water going everywhere but if you close the curtain before you start the water it is fine. The beds are very hard but I have found this is common in Thailand. Over all thsi hotel is fantastic if you want good value and dont need the 5 star treatment. Going in expecting this you will be disapointed. In Australia this would easliy be a $150 and night room on the Gold Coast. Liked everything about it.

Room Tip: See above in reveiw regarding floors and the veiw.

We stayed here for one night and it is indeed a good location close to everything in Patong.
Our room was located pool side, with a small balcony with chairs (you could actually just step into the pool from your balcony).
During our stay there was no internet. When we went to ask they said it was an 'engineering' problem and that it couldn't be fixed but that they were trying. In the 24h we were staying, we never saw it fixed.
The room itself was nice, good bathroom, nice room (not big, but good enough).
We did have a lot of noise from other rooms in the hallway during the night (since you are in the middle of Patong), so little sleep was possible.

The sound of drilling and banging seems to be following me on this Thailand trip . Amata has been a participant too!
Construction noises awake us early in the morning !

This hotel has major Internet issues that result in none for almost 24 hours .

The rooms are not 22 Sqm as advertised but perhaps 16 . Tiny !!!! A view into another persons window very attractive indeed !

But thank god for a clean bathroom ! Shower curtains don't provide ample coverage to prevent the rest of the bathroom floor from pooling water .

Pool closes at 8 pm ! Annoying !

The only saving grace about this hotel is its location ! Otherwise nothing to get too excited about !

Stayed here for two nights in a room facing away from the pool. Having known you can ask for one facing the pool I would have, room same but much better balcony with chairs and table.

Great location, near mall, markets, restaurants and big bar street. Close to beach.

Relatively inexpensive hotel in a perfect location. This hotel is on the main road in Pathong and is walking distance to Bangla road (party strip) and pathong beach. For the price I paid I'am very happy. Bear in mind that the hotel has two separate buildings, and although the room rates are the same at both (were when I travelled) the newer building is more pleasant to live in, while the older building where I stayed had dated furniture and was pretty worn down. Overall I would return but would prefer to stay on the newer side.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the newer building!

We were pleasantly surprised with the Amata Resort in Phuket, great location, 3 minutes walk to street and shops. Lovely room, but when you book you need to ask for a room with a view of the swimming pool otherwise a view of the peoples washing on the otherside was not that good. Great staff very happy to assist in anyway, they had internet free access but this was very slow at times. Pool area beautiful with access to a bar for drinks and you could also order food. They did not have tea and coffee in rooms but that did not worry me as I do not like the milk there. Overall great place and would be happy to recommend.

Room Tip: Dont forget to ask for a room with a pool view.
