We caught the minivan from the airport, but were not well served when the driver dropped us at the end of Bangla Street and pointed us vaguely in the right direction. The online map from the hotel website was not very useful either, but we eventually found the hotel, tucked just around the corner from the noise and traffic. Very pleasant room although as others have noted, the mattresses are definitely at the “firm” end of the softness scale. View is of a piece of property presumably wrecked by the tsunami and awaiting redevelopment according to the billboard out front. Friendly and generally helpful staff, especially around organizing tours and transport to the airport, but one shift does not always pass details along to the other. When we enquired about a city tour, they offered a van and driver for 1500 baht for five hours and the chance to design our own tour which was an excellent option, and for two people, much lower priced than the set tours. We really enjoyed the rooftop pool and bar, although we experienced much more rain that Phuket is supposed to get this time of year (late November).
