“Right in the thick of it......”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

Right in the heart of Patong, about 100m from the hectic area( bangla road). I wouldnt really reccommend it for families, but i wouldnt reccommend Patong in general to families, a lot nicer areas of Thailand to go for family hols!! Perfect if you want to go drinking and bar crawling everynight!! Front dest with 24hr access, felt safe n secure
Each room has a safe, extremly clean and well presented, air-con is standard, no pool ( use of a neighbouring hotel's pool if you wish).

Room Tip: higher the better, i stayed on 4th floor and never heard the outside noise....

Being our first time in Phuket me and my friend wanted something well priced in the heart of the action and @ White seemed to fit the bill perfectly, for the price the rooms are good, although quite small and the bathroom in standard room takes some getting used to (very small with no separate shower area) they were clean, well equipped and comfortable.

My only complaint is the service, i paid for the rooms upfront and after reading a previous review was careful to keep the receipt and just like in previous review was told at end of stay that i hadn't paid, luckily after showing receipt and a bit of feigned head scratching from the staff all was ok but if i hadn't had the receipt who knows what may have happened (thanks Trip adviser), a similar thing also happened with the minibar bill and trying to charge me twice for things so would advise to keep all receipts when staying here,
But for the price you can't really go wrong, the cleaning staff are lovely, the hotel is so close to everything, Bangla 30seconds, Jungcelon 30Seconds and beach only couple minutes walk, some really great food on same rd as hotel also (Soi Sansabai)
I probably wouldn't stay here again as the service issues and trying to charge me twice for things really put me off coming back but if your looking for something well priced in good location then this could be the place for you, just keep your receipts if you pay upfront or pay your minibar bill before checkout..

I've stayed all over Patong, and this is the best location and best hotel in this price range that I've been to. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. Considering the location, it is relatively quiet. This was the first time I didn't need a motorbike because I could walk to the beach, shopping, nightlife and restaurants. The staff were friendly and helpful except for Joy, who couldn't manage a smile. The restaurant offers is lovely and offers western and Thai food at a reasonable price.

If u want to be in the mid of party then this is the place for you.
I have been in this hotel for last 5 days. The superior room is really nice ,clean and spacious.
Jungceylon mall is just beside this hotel and its at the end of bangla road. So it feels like in the mid of party all time.
There are many options for food around this hotel.If you dont want thai food then you can try Euro Bistro on the same road.Their food quality is great!
The main problem was they dont have lift and bellboy so it was a bit problem to take all the luggage to the fourth floor. I didnt find the hotel staff very friendly and its tough to make them understand anything.
But at this cost may be I cant expect anything better than this.
I enjoyed my stay at this hotel for its location and room quality.

Room Tip: Superior rooms are spacious

Depending on what you are looking for this hotel may be a great choice. I agree with most of what other reviewers have said and here are some additional comments:

Good ---
First of all I have to mention front desk staff (her name is Oil) - her attitude and ability are truly outstanding. She is very friendly and professional and speaking to other guests staying there we all felt the same. Credit and recognition to Oil! Perhaps if she was manager this hotel would be a bigger success (see below - i hope the owner is reading this!)

On the subject of staff the 2 room cleaning maids were also very kind and friendly. Good to see!

Location is VERY central. 2 minutes walking to Jungceylon mall and Bangla Rd. Beach is 5 minutes. Definitely one of Patong's best locations if you plan on enjoying shopping and nightlife.

Rooms are simple, clean, and comfortable.

Prices between 700B to 1000B in off season are very good value.

Negatives ---
Noise. Get a room on the side facing the mall if you want to sleep before the rest of Patong (3 or 4 am).

It is NOT a boutique hotel. Really just a very simple but good budget accomodation. You get what you pay for!

Finally....the manager. What a disaster!!!!! She is the most surly and unfriendly (in fact rude!) person and really should not be in this business. And she is not just like this occasionally - it is every day! Too bad... really detracts from the general good review of the hotel

Although I have reviewed this before, I thought I should once again. Because I knew what I would find when I went back whilst travelling around on a dive trip holiday in August 2010. A clean modern welcome break, not your backpacker style accommodation as is the not too far away across the tarmac! Worthy of second recognition, and the only reason I have given 4 out of 5 for "location" and "sleep quality" goes hand in hand, a rock bar down the road opposite Jungcelyon playing the same songs night after night with a variety of equally tuneless bands. Apart from that you cannot fault it, and still at an amazing price, and they picked me up from the airport! Worthy of a visit, go there first to see for yourself!

Situated right in the heart of Patong, this hotel is a stones throw distance away from everything! Enjoy shopping at Jungceylon (next door), dump all your items in your room and head back shopping again!
All restaurants are nearby and you can see Bangla road from your window.

The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and will help you with anything that you need - taxi, day trips etc. They also have american breakfast (not included).

The rooms are ultra clean, though I chose a superior room, hence was much bigger and comfortable. 1400 baht for a superior room in peak season is a bargain considering the location!

Definitely recommended. Booking can be done through e-mail. Very good free wireless internet is also available. Going back there next time. Besides, this hotel is 'Guest Friendly'. :) . Cheers!

Room Tip: Choose a superior room (room no. 26!)
