Stayed at the Bliss in Patong in January 2013. Right up front will say I travelling alone, but didn't want to spend my nights alone. Patong is known for its nightlife and of course the centre of that is Bangla Rd!
The pros: Great location, across street from lovely beach. Room was fine, comfy bed. The food at breakfast was good.
Cons: I asked before I got there about whether the hotel was "guest friendly" was assured it was. Checked it--double checked yes I had registered as two. After first night, my guest and I go to breakfast and that is when trouble begins--the restaurant staff have me as solo--guest will have to pay...making a scene--which is of course embarrassing to me and more so to my guest. I complain to desk-they will sort it out---this repeats itself the next morning. By third morning it was finally sorted out and no hassle. Lots of stares and looks--not great place in general for those with guests.
Other cons--the wifi sucks--very unreliable especially in room. Front desk says they will book trips--but refused to help me book the boat trip I wanted to Phi Phi---because it was cheaper and they would get no kick back. Generally not the friendliest staff around. Bit of hike to Bangla which is a pro and con--not quite so crazy. Perhaps a bit pricey for Patong and facilities.
All in all--OK---if you are a couple, I would say it likely it would be good...solo guys I can't recommend it....
