“decent place for the price...but nothing special, but you're in Patong!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

it's a nice average hotel in Patong. good location. the motorbikes rentals are 150baht a day, which is a decent price. the owner is very nice and speaks a few different languages. he is apparently from paris. unlike most places in patong, the staff and owner are not trying to rip you off, or sell you trip and services you don't need or at inflated prices. so this is a relief.

the bed was not great. and note the wide angle photos of the hotel, the pool for example is rather small and the 'sauna' is good for one person at a time, or a very close couple, and you cannot stand up in it.

finally, the cleaning staff are first rate...no complaints there. :-)

Room Tip: check the bed comfort. phuket in general is over-rated, unless you really like it's form of craz...

I can't advise you more to stay somewhere else! I dont believe half the reviews i've read.

We had 3 nights here - from the moment we arrived the staff were uninterested and bordering on rude. We has to ask repeatedly for help (I ended up fixing some of the issues myself as the front desk staff just rolled their eyes and sighed like a petulant teenager) and we had to change rooms as the smell of the first bathroom was too much to put up with.

The French owner (I presume?) showed vague interest occasionally, but even at check-in it was a farce.

The rooftop pool is not at all pleasant (really run down) and the location is not that beneficial - a reasonable walk into town and nothing of interest in the direct local area.

Just as if it couldnt be more budget, they also don't offer hotel basics (breakfast,laundry), but will begrudgingly point you to some alleyways where you can get these!

If we had known - I would have never bothered. Save yourself some stress/anger and book elsewhere!!

This hotel has a good front desk staff, who was very accommodating to us, since we booked a king room when we really needed two beds, even though they were very full and I had to switch rooms a few times, the hotel did everything they could (even one night giving us two rooms for free), and it was really our fault. The rooms are decent and clean. The hotel is Walkable to the beach, of you like to walk. It's in a far corner of Patong. Not close to bangla road, but again we did walk it. Maybe 20 minutes to bangla and 15 to the beach. I might not stay here again, but I don't have any regrets over my stay either.

We loved our stay at Garden Phuket(3 girls in our 20's). The manager is just amazing and looked after us so much.
Clean, friendly, quiet, walking distance (10 mins) to beach, main mall, shops, family mart and 7/11, nice spacious roof top pool. What more could you ask for??

Highly recommend, we ill be back. :)
