“Disappointed with new ownership”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 22, 2013 via mobile

We stay here on 15&16 dec. Good location and quiet because it is behind the main road. But it seems the place is under new ownership. Due to some road closure, it was difficult to find this place. We try to call up the hotel unfortunately the contact no in website is outdated. The hotel staff are not helpful, they unsure when we asked for direction in town and even cannot recommend a place to eat. The room is big and reasonably clean. But the furnishing is a bit old.

Royal Prince gave us a great welcoming into Thailand.
We had a great, spacious room right next to the swimming pool. The staff was very nice and very helpful, from booking us a trip at a last minute call to pointing us to every weird request we had.
The residence is really close to the center of patong, 5-10 minutes.

We just came back from our stay in this villa and with 7 of us staying in it we had ample space. It was close to everything yet far enough away in a very quite street. Our beds were made everyday and we had fresh towels everyday. It is a 20min walk to Bangla Road with an excellent food market on the way, were food is cooked to order. We had a blast thanks Fred, I recommend these villas A+++

Just came back: 16 - 19 Nov 2013
After reading so many reviews, I shared the same review with others. What you see & pay online is what you get. It was really great value for money. I took the large duplex for 6. The tiny kitchen is fully equipped.The air-con for the 1st floor is powerful & very cold but not the one installed for the attic room. If they installed curtain for all the 3 small window in the attic would be better as by 6am, sun was glaring at you. Overall, very satisfied. Special thanks to Win, despite his leg injuries, he still need to attend all check-in. During our stay, he was like almost 24/7 at the reception. Highly recommended.

A decent place to stay. very friendly & helpful staff, exceptionally fluent English. One of the staff able to speak Indonesian. They clean the room daily. It is not located on the main road, However there are many convenience stores within walking distance. `15-20 minutes walk to Bangla road. We came with a large group so we rented a Large duplex which capable to contain up to 6 people. However there is only one bathroom so there is always a queue for the bathroom.

Overall it is a good place to stay in Patong.
