“Brilliant hotel but check patong is what you're after.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 17, 2013

First I will review the hotel then patong - please think about what you are after in your trip!

The hotel was cleaned everyday, staff were friendly and we booked our trips from the hotel. I was sent an email asking if we wanted collecting for the airport which I turned down - don't take it. The airport is swamped with overpriced taxi companies that bombarded us after a stressful flight for me. Avoid these and walk out the airport in search of a metered taxi. The room at the hotel was a good size and comfortable and the mini bar is very reasonably priced too. It's in a good location for patong as far enough away from the noise to be quiet. It's about a 15minute walk from the beach but you are slowed by the shops hauling in your trade.

Patong - we were travelling accross Thailand and this was the first stop. Phuket as a whole seems nice and we saw traditional Thailand but patong is not that. It seems to be the new upcoming party capital abs has become very westernised. Food is no linger cheap in comparison to Thailand and every shop you pass calls you in for trade or try and shake your hand then won't let go. The massage parlours also go after you and I was regularly groped. If you are going to party the patong is great but if you are wanting to see Thailand stay in chalong which is much nicer. I also wouldn't advise going to patong with children as in the evenings everyone is trying to sell you tickets to the local sex shows.

You certainly can't complain about anything. We stayed 3 nights and got it with 13 euros per night through agoda. For this money you really get a great deal, probably best. We stayed before in a different hotel but when we decided to change the hotel, we walked in to different hotels nearby. The rooms were similar everywhere, but star hotel was cheapest and it had a lcd tv, while others had an old tv. So it was even nicer and we also got a room overlooking to the street so the view was better than in some places where you can see just the wall of a next hotel trough your window.
Rooms are clean, cozy, spacious and nice.
Area is also good, not so much noise and the same time near to everything, beach and main street.
Definitely recommended.
And as for last two comments, I can't really imagine that you expect more of a luxury for just 13 euros or you think it is too simple. It is aiming to be a budget hotel, not five star residence.
Amazing value, one of the best budget hotels.

Stayed there for 8 nights in February - everything was okay but there are definitely no luxuries. The location is excellent if you want to be close to the beach / restaurants but not stay in the noisy Patong center. To be fair no place in Patong is totally quiet, and if you have a room on the street side there will be some loud music during the night etc. There's a receptionist downstairs but they really don't care if someone is making noise in the corridor and sometimes they seemed to be more interested in watching tv anyways. So all in all a good hotel if you're looking for a simple stay but nothing more.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side can be a bit noisy but on the other hand the rooms on the "quiet side...

We were at this hotel during Songkran. It's a budget hotel in Patong area, very very basic. They do have a pool at the roof deck but you won't dare swim, it's dirty. I don't think they have enough staff to maintain the pool, so you won't see guests going up that part of the hotel to enjoy the pool especially after a long day at the beach.

The receptionists are very helpful, they can pretty much help you with anything. But during our first night, I called the reception and the owner of the hotel was the one who handled my call, I asked if they have an adaptor plug 'coz we need to charge our phones, and he said flat-out, no we don't have! That kind of tone that says, that's the answer and you can't ask me anything more, that's as far as you can get! So I just said, oh ok then thanks. But I do think they should provide their guests with this basic necessity, the fact that their guests comes from all parts of the world, it's a common knowledge that power plugs are different in certain countries and it's important that guests charge their phones!

Overall it's a pretty decent place, room is clean, a bit loud that time we stayed there considering it's Songkran, that's a pretty big event in Thailand. Hotel is about 10-15 mins walk from Patong beach, lots of places to eat too. But i'll prolly try another place to stay in when I go back to Phuket.

We hired a car (in advance) that I drove from the airport to this hotel. It is about a 50min drive. It is the far end of the Patong strip. I got a little lost at the very end and the lovely receptionist talked me in and went and stood on the main road waiting for us. We could always find parking outside the hotel.

Check in was very easy. I booked a room without a balcony, and my parents had a room with a balcony. Both rooms were identical, with the exception of the balcony, which my parents loved.

The rooms were very spacious, super clean, with air con, a fridge and TV. The fridge had items in for sale that were priced almost the same as the minimart around the corner, very reasonable. Basic toiletries were provided, as we're 2 bottles of water daily.

My Mum cannot walk without a stick and struggles to balance on her feet. The first day she found the bathroom floor a little slippy however next day the owner saw my Mum and gave her a non slip shower mat, still in its wrapper. Now that is excellent service.

There is a lift that was always super quick, and the free wi-fi worked throughout the hotel.

On the roof is a lovely pool. Not quite big enough for lengths but big enough to cool down in. There are plenty of sun lingers, and very comfortable too. The hotel reception provide towels for the pool.

Reception were always so helpful. They can arrange tours, at no more than the street agents, they can drop your laundry off at the place across the street if you go out. They would do anything you required to make your stay as good as possible.

It is about a 10min walk to the Patong strip and the start of the beach, or grab a tuk tuk. The benefits of being off the strip mean you don't have noise at night when you wish to sleep.

I could not fault anything. Thank you for a lovely stay, we will be back
