“Cheap and cheerful”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

I'm not sure what a resortel is - even spell check is unsure. A good, clean, basic base for enjoying the Patong beach area. Very friendly receptionist - as camp as Xmas and he got none of my jokes - top fella (I think)

I stayed for 7 days at the hotel. The first room I had smelt of cigarette smoke, had a windows that couldn't be locked, had a very lumpy bed but worst of all had no hot water due to a broken heating system. I complained about the shower and was given another room (after 2 nights) which was much better. The following review is based on the 2nd room
Good stuff
Strong air conditioning, balcony, firm bed, location, less noise than anticipated, fantastic reception staff , cheap price, fridge that was cold and large room.

Bad stuff
No lift (need to be energetic to climb stairs), very old furniture, open shower in bathroom where everything gets wet, internet sometimes does not work

The hotel is situated in the Paradise Complex in the centre of Patong. A few minutes from Bang La Road and the JungCeylon Shopping Centre. The staff are very friendly, and the hotel is fairly basic but the rooms are clean and there is a TV with cable. The airconditioning works well.
There is no restaurant in the hotel but a 7-11 around the corner and many small restaurants on the other side of the road. Although the hotel was refurnished a short time ago, the paint is already peeling off the walls; they stopped short of replacing some visible and cheaper items in the bathroom - the toilet seat - and the room is painted a depressing brown colour. But overall very good value and location. I did worry that the room did not have any windows and there was not a fire escape.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floors - and maybe a room with a window.

Paradise Resortel is a small hotel in the middle of the Paradise Complex in Patong Beach (not to be confused with the Grand Paradise Hotel which dominates one end of the complex). There are many restaurants and bars surrounding the hotel. The beach is about a 5 minute walk away.
Booked a last minute 2 night stay while traveling around Thailand. The room was large and clean with a small balcony. The staff were very friendly.

Negatives: The hotel is on a bit of a side alley, where other hotels are hanging their laundry to dry, so it wasn't the most beautiful outside.
From comments overheard, apparently the cheapest room(s) they have are small with no windows, so some guests were unhappy with that.

Positive: Much better than expected. It truly deserves the price. The staff are very nice and helpful! Easily to find after going outside (just near the landmark royal paradise). Walk 5 min to my favorite No.6 restaurant.

Negative: no lift but it is ok for 4-floor building; the air-conditioning is a little noisy while working (actually not necessary to open since it the weather is cool)

Do not be mistaken by the hotel's name. It writes "Paradise Inn" on the building rather than formal "Resortel Paradise".
