After a horrible drive to Phuket from Bangkok (was horrible because of the scammers and disrespectful people in Surat Thani) it was a blessing to have booked this hotel! Though it is a bit of a walk from the main street that leads to Patong Beach, the quality of the hotel and the friendliness of the hotel staff makes it worth staying here! Of my entire month-long vacation in Thailand, this hotel offered the friendliest and most helpful hotel staff that I have ever experienced! The hotel manager/receptionist, a gentleman named Wisud, was the most helpful person that I met in Thailand during my stay! He demonstrated professionalism, exemplified quality guest services, and was a genuinely caring and friendly individual! Wisud helped my girlfriend and I with taxi services to the beach and to the bus station (haggling with the drivers to get you the best price possible!). He offered his own food to us just because we mentioned that we were hungry before we left the hotel! He offered medicine to us because we were feeling a bit ill after eating some bad street food! He was simply the best employee around! The hotel itself was also very pleasant! The rooms were a bit small, but were very clean and tidy. The furniture was new and neat. Free bottled water are given to guest on a daily basis. Free coffee and tea are available in the morning. The lobby is clean and inviting. The hotel is in close proximity to a family mart (half a block away) and a 711 (2-3 blocks away). If you are like me and pay close attention to the reviews of a hotel (especially in Thailand) this is by far the best choice for you to stay if you are on a budget or not! I would've paid three times as much as I did just because of the service that I experienced here. A+++++++ in my book. If I ever make a trip to Phuket again, this is where I will be staying.
Thanks for everything, Wisud!
