When I arrived 10 days ago the single lift could best be described Aztec temperamental. Now, it is simply out of order!
Despite that, it's a great location wIthaca friendly staff.
Yet there is some noise in the rooms atthe front, but I didn't find it too disturbing.

Dear Coolhand12,

First of all we would like to say thanks for taking the time to provide your feedback on your experience with us.

I am sorry to hear we did not met your expectations regarding the elevator. It is true that the elevator had some issues during your stay. I hope that you will understand that we had to close the elevator during the maintenance work. Once again please accept my sincerest apologies for that.

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the location and the friendly staff at Absolute Bangla Suites.

I hope you we will have the chance to welcome you back to the Hotel on your future trips to Phuket and provide the level of service you expect.

Best Regards,

Stefan Rehm
General Manager

I stayed at the above hotel and it was fantastic, we were right by Bangla Road and thought it would be quite noisy ih the room, when we got into the room we could not hear a thing, which was great. I would definitely recommend room 213, would go back again.

Room Tip: Choose Room 213 very quiet

Absolute Bangla Suites, in the middle of Bangla Soi with it's eventful night actions. This hotel offers a great location & the best part is it comes with full kitchen facilities & jacuzzi. The downside is the swimming pool at level 5 is a bit small but no surprise because the beach is the main attraction here. The hotel doesn't serve buffet breakfast but set American breakfast from 7am to 10am daily. With in room kitchen, we can have our own American breakfast in the room anyway. An evening shopping at Big C in Jungceylon nearby save thousands Baht for breakfast. There is a refrigerator to store the food & drinks. It is fully stocked by hotel's drinks & beers but as usual the price is skyrocket. Only 2 complimentary drinking water is free of charge & they replenish it daily. Coffee & tea fan, no worry, the hotel provide coffee maker & toaster as well.

Overall the room is very refreshing with modern interior design. The big Samsung flat TV comes with 86 channels from local to international. Bring or buy your favorite DVD at Bangla Soi, they provide DVD player in room & also iPod dock. No worry about your access to mailbox, Facebook or Internet access, this hotel provides free WIFI. At the check in, the access ID & password will be given. The speed is tip top. The jacuzzi is a thumb up & we love it. We also call in the foot massager in front of the hotel for 2 hours treatment. Excellent hotel & the location is no doubt the best. However, please take note that the Bangla Soi Road closed from 6pm onward daily for night stuff, which mean you need to walk back to the hotel from the main road.

Absolutely will go for Absolute Bangla Suites again next trip.

Room Tip: For quite night sleep ask for room facing opposite side of Bangla Soi. Tiger Night Club side entranc...

I recently stayed here on my own. The hotel is great, a little oasis amongst all the action of Bangla Rd. It has an awesome rooftop pool, bar and restaurant. Pommy guy Dave was brilliant looking after me, the restaurant staff were awesome. My room was on the Bangla Rd side so there was some noise from the bars, so if you can ask for a room on the far side definitely do that. Only thing that let me down was when I checked out, the staff member tried to charge me for a laundry bag that obviously got left at the laundry by the staff, and was quite rude about it. If you are looking for a great hotel right in the action, then highly recommend.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the far side.

Beautiful hotel right in the middle of the action on Bangla Rd. The staff are magnificent - particularly the restaurant staff. A late night drink on the top deck is a must. The room was fantastic - highly recommend room 213! Quiet, particularly as it got later, it's away from the street and most of the party noise. Room decked out in red & black with neon lights for mood lighting! Spa was great and the pool on the top deck is awesome. Housekeeping twice a day. Really great option to see Patong at its heart!

Room Tip: Room 213 - away from the noise of Bangla Road. Spa, loungeroom, great bed.
