Reviewed February 19, 2013

First impression -looking very old and shabby compared with the pictures on hotel sites. Exclusively dirty garden furniture! Can not describe! But they were quick to replace for the new ones at the first request. Could move in the room only after the 3d attempt, the first room was adjacent to a janatorial store -nobody had a thought to cover mops and cloths even at least with any kind of curtain or blind - so it was not a good idea to spend your holidays smeling dirty janatorial gear. Second room was much better (but we discovered that it was a very smart trick and a kind of a revenge- if you did not like the first - here is for you even worse - we realised it on the first nite when we were waken up with unbeleivable roaring sounds, I was close to a heart attack- looked out of the inside window which was thoughtfully blinded up when we were moving in - what a surprise for us was! It was a maintenance section with water pumps which they start at nite time about 2 am (Room 119). After I said I was moving out - they gave us a really good newly refurbished room wiht a new conditioner. But they put so much chlorine in water that when I washed the hair dyied by the most expensive stylist in Patong - the color just run off it! You could not smell that clorine - you could eat it!!!

Cleaning in the rooms was perfect. Furniture nicely cut, tiled floor, clean white sheets, good TV, big fridge.Lovely shower in this room (108)

Another story with complmentary water - be careful. For three days they tried to convince me that 2 bottles of water in minibar were complimentary , a well known trick who travel a lot like me- untill I invited a manager and showed her a minibar list with those 2 waters included as chargable. After that I was given complimentary water daily for free as it was stated on the site.

Swimming pool - a non cleaned diamond, the most interesting part of the resort, unfortunately people do not have a slightest idea that it should ne cleaned on daily basis - both the bottom and the surface of it. Apart from it filtration system was good.

Eating - normal breakfasts, juces from boxes, too much sugar - stopped taking them, very good rice noodles with chiken and average fried rice.Not very welcome manager.Leaves you a feeling that you constantly owe her something. Not a single smile to anybody of the guests, though I think that apart from it she doing her job perfectly with respect to cooking.Service is poor. Forget napkins, forget milk, forget this and that you need to remind each time or take yourself.

Beach: water was dirty and I had to go to Karon every day to swim.

The last thing which just killed me - they wanted to charge me for the second time when I was leaving the hotel, the reason was "We have not yet received the money from the agency".

Location is great for nitelife.

Over all impression: a treasure without proofessional supervision or manangement, no training for personnel. Not recommened for experienced travellers.

Room Tip: Rooms are very different quality - some showers have very old equipment, some - very good new ones...

We have been there for 8 nights. Hotel is located cca 200 m from the sea and to Jungceylon about 500 m. We have booked standard room. Rooms are older, but clean and room service is excellent. I can appreciate breakfast (you can choose from the list, what do you want). The pool is very nice too with barpool. Internet is for 500 THB/5 days (it account only time, which you spend on internet). Hotel is close to the sea, shopping centers and nighlife possibilities.

The hotel is located in a great location, roughly a 5 minute walk to Bangla Rd. There are also a couple of bars and massage places in the same soi. The downside is they seem to get going around 11pm (bars and shrieking massage girls) and dont stop until 3 or 4am. Then the kitchen starts preparing breakfast from 6am with a constant clanging of plates and cutlery ( we stayed in rooms 213 & 214 for 6nights). The rooms were comfortable and large, the breakfasts were huge with plenty of choice and just a short stroll to the beach. So if you can put up with the noise this place is good value.

I stayed here over the peak season (dec-jan) for roughly two weeks. Some nights you could hear the street noise, other nights not so much. However, for me this isnt a problem.
The rooms were small but generally tidy.
I recommened wearing shower shoes while showering though, as you never know. The showers are also pebbled, so i was curious to know if they actually cleaned them and if they did, how well it was cleaned.
The staff were friendly and kind.
The pool was small with some shady areas, along with a swimup bar.
It is a rather small complex and does not have an elevator or lift, but doesnt need one.
However, i did find the location perfect as we were a close walking distance from the shopping centre and the main party road.
I recommend, especially to younger adults and teenagers, not to young families with small children.
I would stay back here again. Great for the price.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the pool, preferably the second floor.

great location, well...if you really like Patong.... a lot of 'happy' massages just in front of the hotel's doorstep
the hotel overall is good, the rooms spacious, apart for the small bathrooms. They have also a small pool (never used it though).
a good 10 minute walk from Bangala road, just next to the main street where all the shops are and also a 5 minute walk from the patong beach.

We stayed 5 nights at the Jang Resort. It is located conveniently between the main road running along the beach front and the main road that goes past the markets and shopping centre. Only five minutes to the beach or the Otop market or Jung Ceylon shopping centre. BangLa rd is about a ten minute walk. There are a number of massage places nearby, but generally they do not bother you. The rooms themselves were spacious and comfortable. We had two rooms as we were staying with our teenage daughters. The shower in our room has low water pressure, but was adequate. Our air conditioner stopped working and was replaced with a brand new one while we were out for the day. The staff were friendly and helpful. The breakfast was basic, but good. The pool was not large but big enough for a relaxing cool down at the end of the day. The rates we got were amazing. Will definitely look to stay there again, next we are in Patong.

Room Tip: We chose a room that opened right onto the pool.
