Cello Hotel

Reviewed May 19, 2013

We arrived at Cello Hotel, having already booked online, with relatively low expectations as it was very cheap, not because it didn't look nice but because we had been used to staying in backpacker accommodation for the same price and expected it to be the same. When we arrived in the room we were very happy indeed! The room was spacious, well furnished, the bed was SO comfy! It had a fridge, which was a god send after spending the past few weeks drinking warm water, a TV, wardrobe, balcony and the bathroom was big and very clean. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location was great. Close to the night markets, Bangla road, the shopping centres and a 5-10min walk away from the beach. Would recommend to anyone looking for cheap, central accommodation whilst in Phuket

This hotel was a real bargain for us. We had a big room with great beds and nice service.
One thing we didn't like is that they changed the room without notification. I don't like it when stranger pick up all my stuff. But it all went well, so I forgive them.
Furthermore, in room 309 the airco was a bit noisy. Every 10 minutes or so, a large bang was heared in the airco.
BUT, people were great, waling distance from Bangla, nice terrace, great free Wifi.

We stayed there from February 21st to 24th.
A nice friendly place. Very helpful people. Good location. The food in the hotel was a little expensive but good.
Rooms were very clean and the room rent was pretty reasonable.
There will be some trouble for you if you are a light sleeper because noise from the street was a little loud at times.
On the whole a nice place to stay without burning a whole in your pocket.

Overall its a nice place, although it is not the same as the photos o the hotel review, The food is good. the only problem we had was the water in the toilets had a funky kind of smell, and it was throughout out stay (3 nights) . Wifi kept dropping. there is no lifts in this hotel, so be prepared to walk up the stairs with your luggage. there is no safe in the room but there have it at the reception. its safe. they provide beach towels .Staffs are friendly.
its close to the mall and walking distance to the beach.its a good place to stay if you are a couple and fine with a not so fancy hotel.

They had super poor communication with the booking agency. I booked the queen bed room for 3days, but they gave me the twins bed room. Moreover, they removed all my luggage to another room without informing me, DO NOT RESPECT OTHER'S PRIVACY!!! This is really unacceptable!!! And they did nothing as the compensation!!! The wifi in this hotel is really poor, always disconnected!!! Very poor experience here!!! Not recommended!!!

The staffs at the Cello Hotel where very friendly, they were a lot of fun and very helpful. Food at the restaurant was tasty!
The whole experience was wonderful my boyfriend and I had a great stay. Hotel was in a fantastic location was spot on, close to the hustle and bustle but still away from it all if you need to escape the madness ; rooms cleaned to a good standard. The air con is cool and worked a treat. We stayed 10 nights over the Christmas and New Year break and enjoyed every minute we would defiantly return.

Room Tip: If you like a quiet room, be sure to ask for a room facing away from the street as previously stated...
