“I would not recommend staying here even to my worst enemy”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

On the way to Patong our taxi company refused to take us to our booked hotel. They stopped on the way and refused to take us further saying our hotel was not open. They forced us to pay another 1100 baht to stay at the Erawan. When we objected we were threatened with violence.
Upon arrival at the Erawan, the staff seemed unconcerned that we were threatened and forced to pay for a room there. We demanded our money back but they denied knowing how much the taxi payed for the room as it was a prearranged price with the owner. The refused to give us any money back. The place looked disgustingly dirty and over priced. The place could use quite a bit of repair work besides just a good mopping.
Since the hotel was obviously involved in a tourist shakedown scam, we decided that even though we were forced to pay for the room, we walked to the hotel we had booked which the taxi and Erawan said was not talking guests.

This place is close to all the restaurants, night life and only 2 blocks from the beach. You get free wi-fi in room which is handy. AC works well and quiet - fan above bed was good.
Our room was clean which is my first 'must have'. Having said that:
1. No blankets on bed - you are given a big towel
2. Security can't be that good as very loud in hotel late at night from guests - no one around to quiet them down.
3. Very run down - furniture poor & a coat of paint badly needed.
4. Bed is SO hard - you better like a hard mattress!

All around it was doable but just. For a 7 day stay we should have gone elsewhere but I would say a 1 to 2 day stay here you would be okay.

Room Tip: no elevator so if you don't like carrying up luggage ask for a room on 2nd floor. No refunds so...

Definitely one of the best guesthouses for that price. Rooms were cleaned everyday and towels were also renewed. Friendly staff and the laundry service next to the hotel were amazing. Situated to some great food restaurants. And in walking distance to the beach.

Room Tip: One nightstands are allowed in your room!
