Sorry to say that we had booked for 3 nights and we left after the first night. The staff are very friendly but the hotel really isn't up to the standard that the price would demand. It's a two star hotel with four/five star prices.
The location is at the dead end of Patong Beach (there is no real beach in front of the hotel) and a bit sad. The reception area needs a really good work-over and refurbishment as the floor, benches, chairs, reception desks are all very old and used. As a first impression it really is off-putting and we wanted to leave right away on arrival. The staff however are very sweet and helpful so we tried our two deluxe rooms for one night. The rooms are clean and quite nice although small and we had rooms with access to the small pool area. However the other guests were so close to our small terrace that they almost had access to our bathrooms !! There was a very large concrete passage-way just to the side and slightly above our terrace which passed to the restaurant and we had a lot of 'sight-seers' traffic. We were also directly opposite the open restaurant area so there was no privacy whatsoever and we felt very much exposed and uncomfortable. The place really is too small for comfort.
The WiFi is 200 BHT per hour (which for my two kids would have been a big extra cost for three days) although there is a 24 hour period charge for 300 BHT per user which is less tough on the wallet. The breakfast was ok and the staff helpful and friendly.
If you want to stay in Patong there are many, many better value hotels with much more charm and character than this hotel at half the price. If the price was one third what they ask it would be just OK.
