“Don't go if you're not chinese”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

We went to Patong as part of our trip. The hotel was quite bad. we were in a "superior" room and sincerely is one of the worst rooms I've ever stayed in.
This hotel has been made for Chinese people only. The staff don' t speak English, and they don't even try to. We ask for a burger in the restaurant and we couldn't eat it, the beef was extremely bad, actually it was rancid.
We were lucky and we had a room with a sewage plant view.

In patong you can find very nice hotels, at the same price or less.

Hotel located in Patong. Not exactly in the centre of entertainment area. Nearby to Jungceylon mall. Main road in front of the hotel is still under construction, lots of dust. Have to rent a motorbike or take a taxi to go to the beach or Bangla road because it's quite far. Buffet breakfast is okay. Most of the staff can speak English. Standard room is small, but complete with basic hotel items. Air conditioning is old and it takes longer time to cool down.

I'm writing this at the hotel lobby while waiting for the taxi to pick us up to the airport. I've read so many bad reviews about this hotel and I think I should say.. i beg to differ.. give this hotel a break..

1) This hotel is nice. Decent. And with the prices that I've paid via AirasiaGo.com, I can say it's worth it. Now, if u are looking for extreme isolation with extreme privacy, I suggest u go to the villas scatered around.. but if uR looking for comfy beds after a long walks around patong and beaches.. then this is the place..

2) Yes, I can hear peoples talking, walking and even running outside my room, but to tell u the truth, it didn't bothered me coz I'm out of my room almost the whole and the noise only linger for a while (the management can improve this especially by putting the door stopper~the one that avoids the door from bangging and putting reminder to all guests to respect other guestd privacy)

3) A hotel with a good price, complimentary breakfast, a roof top pool, spacious lobby and bigger queen size bed even tho its windowless.. well thats what I call value for money.. not 2 forget, its really near to the jungcleyon, the heart of patong..

4) The roadside outside is still under construction but that have nothing to do with the hotel.. so stop blaming them for the muds and hazy surrounding.

5) The staff might not be very friendly but I guess its due to their limited vocab.. Thais people are actually very friendly once u've gotten to.know them more..

6) and last but not least, the food at the Reds cafe are delicious.. You should've try them it.
Overall, its either you expection are too high when u paid so much less or you are just plain hard to please..

I'll give my thumbs up for this hotel...

Hotel staffs are ok but their clientele are worse nightmare that nobody should ever endure at any given time. My husband and I thought we give it a try since it was brand new hotel. What a biggest mistake that was, I noticed they have two separate buildings when we arrived. I thought we were lucky to have booked brand new building but that was only thing. First when we were showed to our room, elevator was so small only 4-5 skinny people could fit in. I didn't think much about that but when we got to our room, I noticed our room didn't have a window. Even then, I said no big deal but when I started to hear people talking from other rooms nearby like they were in our room, I couldn't believe how thin the wall was for me to hear every detail conversations from either sides of rooms and even across from my room. I had Russian neighbor taking shower at 1am and blow drying their hair and screaming over all the hair drying noise in the background. Like that wasn't bad enough, most of people in that hotel are from India. I have nothing against Indians but they were talking from one room to other rooms screaming and knocking on every door on my floor including mine. I don't know what is wrong with those people but that is not okay to do at 2 am waking everybody up at that odd hours. I almost lost it when fire alarm went off on top of all these crazy people in this so call hotel. I am sorry but this is not a hotel standard at any place in this world because this place is worse than any motel even. I have been to Phuket many many time but never ever had to deal with nightmare hotel like this one. I travel all over the world and stayed at all level of hotel, motel, bungalow and cabin, etc. but this place was the worst experience ever in my entire life. I wasn't going to write review but I don't want anyone ever have to go through the nightmare my husband and I had to deal with. Go any where else other than this hotel from hell.

Stayed for 2nights and got the deal from groupon. We arrived at 9am and they didnt allow us for early check in, have to pay 2000baht for that. Our room didnt even look the same as their pics on the internet. Room looks old,small and hot shower didnt functioning well. Location is strategic but 10min wal to patong beach.2 min walk to jungceylon. Breakfast was ok.
The staff named mam was rude to us and not helpful at all. Asked her to book us a taxi and she refused until we pay her in advance for the taxi. She even shouted at other guests. I will never stay here ever again.

Rooms are small very small and Aircon noise will wake you up at night. On checkin they told me 20 percent off on food but never gave me that discount . The waiter said reception will give discount but reception on checkout said why didn't you sort at that time . Drove me nuts. On checkin I took a shower and water started to fill up in bathroom. Location even though close to jungceylon shopping centre but it is on dirty side . Open sewers and stench was terrible every time I walked out. Trust me I have travelled a lot in third world countries and this was by far the worst. There are so many thing what to right. Even though room is made every day but you coffee cups are left dirty. No tea coffee bags in rooms only kettle!
They will look for every excuse to rip you off. Deposit for this money for that. Sorry can't do ....you have to pay this that. Pictures on website have been stretched to make rooms look bigger. Breakfast ok. But I regret buying the groupon voucher. When I reached patong I realised I could have had much better options if I didn't book online. I will never pre book or prepay hotels in Asia is my rule from now.

Poor service!!!All the staffs are not willing to provide any info. Whatever you ask they just say "don't know"!! it takes me about 3 hours siting at lobby for upgrading my room with cash payment! The message has been passed around to few different persons, in the end, no body follow up. Very rude service! the standard room is super small and without window, the free wifi is not accessible at all, unless you pay! all rooms with window are facing to traffic, very noisy throughout the whole night, due to Patong is a night life area. No hot water for shower! water stuck in bath room. It takes more than 10 mins to get a staff in after few rings. This hotel is mainly for those travel groups, thus they are not ready to provide service! simple breakfest but many customers/tour groups. The only good thing is the location is very close to the malls (about 5mins walk). pls try to avoid this hotel, there are plenty choices around!

Room Tip: No more Patong Holiday.
