I travel solo. And I'm quite sensitive to noise at sleep. I simply can't stay at noisy hotels in busy area, so my strategy is to book one night at a hotel, try it, if it's noisy at night and my sleep quality is bad, i switch to another hotel, but if the sleep quality is good, I extend the stay (learned a hard lesson from my Bali trip). Not so easy to find a quiet corner in busy tourist areas, so it takes extra efforts to try and decide to stay or move after one night. Through Google I found this one on Agoda, and booked it to try one night. Good sleep. Unusual quiet corner in the busy Patong area. So I extended for another 4 nights, and quite glad I did through the treasure hunt for quiet clean hotels.
Details: King size bed, good quality. Brand new room, in the brand new building. Sheets and towels are new, fresh and clean. Free internet (both Wifi for my iPhone and desktop in the lobby). Free water from bar. 24-hour convenience store FamilyMart is right at the street corner, very convenient, which I really like. The owner is American, accepting payment in cash. Very Thai style already.
The hotel is 10-minute walk to restaurants and shopping streets. 15-walk to Patong Beach. I did not rent a scooter, just walked around to explore the area. The hotel is blessed with good location, at the quiet clean corner on a new street, and has great price for this popular beach area (luckily good weather in those days of my stay too). I'm quite glad I found this new hotel to stay under my budgets. And most of all, with good sleep quality I need during my travel. Overall good experiences in Phuket here.
I would recommend this hotel to travelers who need good location and clean quiet corner for sleep quality.
