“Good alround budget hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2013

Good hotel, value for money. Smiley friendly reception staff let us check in at 11.30am.
Good, clean room with tv with lots of channels, free water daily. We were on 3rd floor, good free wi-fi signal in room and reception area. No wi-fi signal on rooftop pool area. Nice basic pool area with 6 sunbeds, always quiet so available beds.
Good location, no noisy bars around, 10min walk to big jungacelon shopping centre and bangla road, 15mins to beach. Lovely Thai family run restaurant next door to hotel (left out of reception) very cheap, amazing food, hidden gem for Thai food!! We booked room with breakfast but shouldnt have bothered, serves till 11am, not the best breakfast!
Alround fab hotel in good location!

Stayed 8 nights at this hotel, good location only 10 minute walk to beach or nightlife area. Rooms bit on the small side but everything appears new. Great little Thai restaurant on the opposite side of the road to the left of hotel with sign saying fast food 50baht. Will stay at hotel again

We have just spent 4 nights at 88 and it was a delight. The hotel is modern, clean, the staff are extremely helpful, and happy. There is everything you need there including a Kettle and cups. The bed was very comfortable and I had to ask the delightful cleaning staff to stop changing our towels daily. not neccessary girls! The breakfast is amazing and well, as said, a great place. I am going to look at other reviews in a moment to see if anyone found anything negative. Its a close walk to Bangla and the beach (8 minutes) and even closer to the Huge shopping mall which is very impressive. Dont let anyone tell you that its only Taxi`s and Tuk-Tuks to Phuket town, there is a bus on the beach road from the top of Bangla (Blue Bus) runs every 30 mins, 30b. Bargain.

Due to our arrival in Mid May (low season), we were able to negotiate a rate which was considerably lower than posted rates and that which we could find online (Trip Advisor, Agoda, Booking)

Check-in was standard for Thailand (provide passport number, etc) and we were charged the standard additional fee for the convenience of using Visa.

This hotel has 7 floors of rooms and a roof top pool all accessible by stairs or elevator. The rooms have fridges, flat panel TV, hot water showers and air con.

We had rooms in facing both Nanai Road and the back of the property. We found the rooms to be bright and the potential to be airy if one opened the patio doors and large windows above the bed. Due to the temperature, we opted to keep them and the curtains closed and the air con on max. Both rooms were quiet, the front ones having a better view of the people and traffic on the road below.

The rooms are clean, with fresh linens, towels and complimentary bottled water provided every day. Although “American” breakfast was provided on-site, we decided to opt out of the this additional option to lower our rate.

A few lazy hours were spent in the plunge pool located on the roof top. There are electrical sockets near the “bar” area if you need to recharge your phone or lap top while you check out the views. Cannon balling from the roof of the bar is not permitted even if there is a ladder making it accessible.

We found the staff to be entertaining, knowledgeable and invaluable in assisting us in planning some of our activities. They are able to help with booking activities and onward travel. Scooters are available for rent across the road from the guesthouse or they have a preferred company up the road that will deliver one to the guesthouse for you.

The location of the guesthouse is only a 5 minute walk from Jungceylon, 10 minute walk from Bangala Road, 15 minute walk from Patong Beach and a 45 minute drive to the airport.

We would stay here again when we visit Phuket and would recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Book a room either in the front or the back to take advantage of the bright rooms.

Just came back from Phuket and my family and we stayed at the 88 Hotel Patong when we're there. The hotel is located at Nanai Road, which is more of a backpackers area. It is about 5 minutes walk to Jungceylon Mall and 15 minutes to the beach. While some may think it's far from the beach, for me, there's so much to see during the walk to the beach that you wouldn't realise it is that far. The entire hotel is very clean and the rooms are spacious enough. Rooms are made daily and towels are changed daily too. The staff, although not all are well versed in English, are very helpful and polite. You could get the staff's help to book day tours around Phuket at a discounted rate. There are many food stalls around the hotel which sells food at very reasonable prices. There's even one food stall opposite the hotel that also serves German food (for those who are interested). American breakfast is provided. The portion is big --> 2 eggs+ 2 sandwiches+ 1 bowl of cereal + fruits + coffee/tea/juice!!! I wished they would provide some variety to breakfast because having to eat the same stuff every morning for the 3 days I'm there is just not cool!! The rooftop pool is actually very small. I'd consider it more of a plunge pool rather than a swimming pool. Apart for these small problems, I do think this is a good hotel for those who are looking for a comfortable place to stay at an affordable rate

We booked to stay here for 3days on booking.com. To our delight, for the equivalent of £16 a night, we got to experience luxury that is really unseen and unheard of in budget places. It is a new hotel with all modern fixtures and appliances, spotlessly cleaned rooms and a decent pool on the roof also.

The room was modern, very spacious with large wall mounted flat screen tv, large wardrobe, fridge, curtained off shower and comfortable bed. Balcony, 3large windows. Bathroom had window also. Complimentary water everyday.

Bangla road 10-15minutes walk away, add on another 5minutes for the beach... which for us was a nice walk, we really did not mind it. Shopping centre and market also 10mins away.

Staff were always very helpful and polite. At reception, the girl was very helpful in calling an external travel agency to rearrange boat times for us, thank you!

Definately recommend this place to all, best value place in all thailand we have experienced.
