This time I went with friends who wanted to enjoy the beach and Patong night life for a long weekend.
They dont want to dish out for accommodation since, as they say, 'we are not here to stay in the room' and hence they handed it to me to find a cheap hotel.
Ending up with only 1.100baht/night per room. 2C is a rather small basic hotel that is located in the bottom of a small soi right on beach road, just about in the middle of 'the happening end' of beach road. Located some 50-60 yards into the soi is just enough to not being able to hear the street noise which is especially nice when you want to sleep. The soi has its good share of cheap massage places btw.
The room is very very basic with an old bed, very old tv, a good sized refrigerator and a bathroom which is actually quite good. There is a window right next to the bathroom but its only 20 inches from a neighbouring wall which means no light and no view. The bed and pillows are normally also something I would write a bad comment about but considering the measly 1.100baht per night, I dont expect 'normal' comfort or any kind of luxury.
This hotel is perfectly suited for people who want to enjoy the outside and just need absolute basics when its time to groom or crash after a long day. The bathroom here is then what matters, It has a fine sink area to put stuff and a shower cabin. Hot and cold water works well and the bathroom is spacious enough. It floods easily if you are not careful with the shower curtain.
The small aircon unit in the room is also able to perform its job.
Only grife I have is that the safe is so small, it cant even hold an Ipad. That is NOT ok when the description says there is a safe in the room. It is not gonna pull down the score however, which I consider to be worth 4 stars.
Location cant be much better if you want to be in walking distance from everything in Patong. All in all, I think this place was great value for money. I have stayed in 3x more expensive hotels here (cant help myself but to mention Patong Seaview) where accommodation was about the same.
I can recommend 2C Hotel.
