The Album Hotel
Ranked #101 of 409 Patong B&B and Inns
Reviewed March 18, 2013

We stayed at the Album hotel for 3 nights. For the price, the rooms were good, clean and reasonably quiet. Bed were firm. The breakfasts were average only offering cereal, toast and cakes but reasonable for the money. The pool area on the roof was nice. Staff were very helpful and friendly.

Good hotel for travelers on the go. Not somewhere you would want to spend your day. Breakfast could have been better but was ok for the price you pay. Pool area was nice, rooms clean and staff were very nice. for the price we were pleased! wouldnt go back to patong for more than a day or two but if I was to go there this hotel would suffice.

This is at best a boutique hotel with very small and simple rooms. There is no place to unpack your suitcase.
Hotel has no lobby, just an office desk and a breakfast area with one table.
Album should be a two-star hotel.

Room Tip: A high floor would have a better view.

Booked 1 night Twin Bed Room stay with my partner just to experience Patong nightlife and crowd, before moving to other quieter parts of Phuket. The hotel is right at the intersection of a road called Sawatdirak Road and the busy Patong main street. Even so, it is not as noisy as what you will expect, unless you're a really light sleeper.

Room - Decent size with beds placed on top of a raised wooden platform flooring. Aircon was ok, no problem with whatever temperature that you need.

Bathroom - Size was good, with basic amenities such as bath gel, shampoo, towels. No razor or toothbrush were given though.

Room Facilities - 2 bottles of mineral water was provided in the fridge. TV worked fine with a few satellite channels. Safety deposit box was really small, probably enough just to fit wallets. In general, relatively clean and comfortable.

Breakfast - very simple toasts, cereals, fruits, and juices. I would suggest going for breakfast at a local nearby roadside stall across the street, or the few western breakfast cafes.

Location - a few convenience stores nearby. Walk to Jangceylon Mall probably took about 10 minutes, but along the path you can easily feast your eyes on roadside shops, restaurants, and bars. Along the way you can also go to Bangla road, where all the actions are happening at night.

Service - ok, not the best. Just average. In general, don't really have a good experience with the locals and their attitudes, especially the girls. Apparently since the whole town favors Caucasians' businesses, we are not pleased with the attitudes shown by the locals.

If you're looking at this on trip advisor to book a hotel, just do it! We stayed five nights here in August and found it was just as good as everyone says. The rooms are clean and beds so comfy! There staff are friendly and they would even come and clean our room at like 3pm after we finally left. It's a great location, close to the action but not noisy. Would highly recommend this hotel only be warned that the rooms are very small if you like space. Food was good as well, fresh fruit but also nutella, bread and cereal, basically what ever you want. They also had umbrellas which was invaluable as it rained pretty much our whole trip. Oh well, great excuse to wat

We stayed here for 2 nights after karon and this was really refreshing, very neat and tidy! Close to everything and if you dont mind a bit of noise at night youll be fine.

Breakfast was good in my opinion, had cereal and toast so i was happy as fried breakfast in thailand is not very good.

Staff were very friendly and by far the best hotel staff we encountered in phuket!

Down the street on the way to the beach, an old lady sells chicken and rice from a trolley, this chicken is AMAZING and so cheap as we only pay 30tb for 1 piece! No point in eating in resturants as the street food is way better and cheaper! Just make sure its cooked properly..
