“not for family”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2008

We has origianly booked in for 8 days, but upon arrival decided 1 night was more than efficient. The pool wasn't usable..was told it filter had 'jsut broken' would be fixed in an hour. But was obvious had been broken alot longer. Our groundfloor family room, with direct pool access, was in need of a do over, but this would not normally put us off..however it was the 'door' in sons room with 2 inch gap at bottom wich led to the junk area and the window with card board boxes stacked up outside which made our decision.
This hotel is more geared towards the backpack traveller/students/clubbers etc.

My boyfriend and I booked a standard room via their website, from 4 to 10 June 2008. This was our second time staying at this hotel, so they gave us a 5% discount, off the 700baht/night rate (low season). They accept only Thai baht and there is a 3% surcharge if you pay by Visa/Mastercard, and 5% by Amex. The taxi service arranged with Le Tong from the airport to the hotel is 550baht. I'm not sure if there are cheaper ones outside the hotel though.
Checking into the hotel was pretty effortless. There are 4 storeys but no elevator. We were given a room on the 4th floor, so had to drag our luggage up. People who hate to climb stairs may have to give this hotel a second thought.
Room was clean, with white bed sheets and Thai-style furniture. The floor's a bit sandy but we weren't very fussy. There is a little raised platform with mats and a small coffee table for you to chill, with big windows for the view. There is a balcony where you can dry your clothes/swimwear really quickly. The room provides aircon which works well, refrigerator with complimentary water (which we liked), cable TV.
The bathroom is small and basic, but had pretty colourful tiles. There is no bathtub, only a showerhead which could be stronger. Sometimes a bit frustrating to wash sand off our hair. Since the space is small, water may get everywhere - toiletbowl, sink etc. There are bar soaps and towel provided. Lights in the room and bathroom are quite dim.
Room service is done regularly sometime after lunch. The floors are swept and fresh towels given etc. On the day when we stayed in the room till 3pm, the staff knocked on the door and gave us towels.
There is a small pool in the hotel, 1.2 m deep. The water isn't clear though. You can ask for beach towels before heading for the beach.
Le Tong is next to Novotel, about 5 min from the beach. We liked the quiet and peaceful location although it was about 15 min walk from Bangla Road and the nightlife (Le Tong is opposite end of Patong Beach from Holiday Inn). Tuk tuks are always waiting outside to hotel for tourists who don't feel like walking. There is a 7-11 and Family Mart nearby.
The staff are alright, but one particular man who cleans the room is really friendly. He recognized us from our last trip!
Overall, we liked Le Tong because it is so cheap, and clean enough for us to stay and lounge comfortably. The location is nice, away from the noise and bustle. We will definitely return for our third stay!

Me and my wife recently stayed in Le Tong hotel in Patong Beach for 5 nights. We arrived in Phuket in the middle of high season when demand for accommodation is high and supply of good quality rooms short so we were glad to find a room with decent location in Patong and had no choice but to take it. (we did consider Hilton resort for about GBP150 per night but the location did not suit us)

First of all, the room we stayed in was OK (just OK). Paid nearly GBP40.00 (USD80.00) per night per room and for Thailand it is not particulary cheap. We got a room on 4th floor and the only good thing about it was the view of the sea and the sunset.

Le Tong is a typically run down B&B that has not seen any kind of modernization or investment probably since the current owners bought it. The shower is OK with good pressure, however we did find army of small ants marching through our room at any time of the day (not very nice). All furniture is old. This is not a room to hang out - this is a room only to take the shower and to get sleep.

The owners (or the girls who run the place) are the most greedy people I met for long time. They will rip you off whenever they get a chance without any hesitation. they have no manners and no education how to run a business, all they see is a short term profits. why I am saying this and how did I find out? let me tell you. my wife is who is not thai understands and speaks thai fluently. the people who run the place did not know that however and so they spoke about us (in front of us) in thai on several occassions how to squezze more $$$ out of us, how to overcharge us, for example, when booking taxi with them, etc...

Final advice: do not be misled by their smiles when they talking to you - they are fake and their interstet is only how to get more money out of you.

Le Tong is located in between 2 bigger hotels so it provides some sort of exclusitivity offered by its branded neighbours. We liked it for its proximity to the main Patong Beach area but yet, tucked away from all the noise and traffic. Plus points - a 7-11 and Gloria Jean's is just round the corner. The nearby restaurant (a few doors down from 7-11) even offers free internet.

Being budget travellers, this hotel was an excellent choice. As with many hotels in Patong area, there are no lifts so we chose a room on the ground floor. We can see the beach directly at our door and it's just 2 mins away. Breakfast is cheap and they offer services like local phone calls, laundry, etc at low rates. A tour operator is right at the hotel entrance so it's easy to book a trip to anywhere from there. The hotel staff are friendly as well and with an acceptable proficiency level of English (many service staff in Phuket can't understand English at all).

That said, the rooms are just functional.. clean but functional standard only, like an average 2 to 3 star hotel. Nothing fancy but nonetheless provides well for a good night's sleep/comfortable stay i.e. clean ironed sheets, firm bed and pillows, good air-conditioning, good water pressure and hot water.

There's no security guard tho although the staff are always around to look after things. But if you're the jumpy sort, then this hotel might not be suitable for you.

All in all, it was a great stay and if we're ever in Phuket on a budget again, we would choose Le Tong.

Stayed there for 4 nights. I was there with a group of friends from college. I had a pleasant experience right from the start! We booked the hotel through its web site and wrote an email to the manager to confirm. He replied back almost immediately and made sure that I have transportation to and from the airport.

Once we arrived at the hotel, which was nicely furnished in Thai style, we were greeted by the staff who gave us advice about tours in Phuket. They are all very friendly and helpful. Their English weren't that great, but they really try to help accommodate our needs!

The location of the hotel is GREAT. It's a few minutes walk to the Patong beach ( which is sooooo beautiful, by the way) and it's about 15 minutes walk to downtown Patong. This means that we're near enough to be able to walk to the bars and restaurants, but not near enough to hear the commotion!!!

A pleasant stay at a budget price. Will definitely come back!

Just came back from that hotel. The price is very reasonal for normal budget trip. Stayed there for 4 days 3 nights. Location is just nice. Few mins walk to the beach and peacefully quiet at night because of its location not near to the main road. Services are good with friendly hotel staff. Swimming pool is clean. The rooms are nicely decorated. FInally, room services are nicely done. Really a nice place to chill out. nice nice nice.

For those looking for low cost hotel price and not fussy about anything, this is right place to stay.

  • Liked — my room is just infront of the pool
  • Disliked — nothing much because i dont expect much from it. its perfectly fine to me.
