Alfresco Phuket Hotel
Ranked #232 of 386 Hotels in Kathu
Reviewed September 18, 2011

Stayed for 4 nights. The hotel is located about 10 mins walked from the shopping mall (jonglycon or something like that) which is huge and offers plently to do. Its about 15mins from the beach but for both locations there is a free tuk tuk service to take you down. The hotel is also near the patong area which is full of go go bars and pubs etc.
The room was clean and had a lovely bathroom and comfy bed. On a main road but couldnt here much from it.
The staff were amazing, they were friendly, always smiling and giggling and always happy to help.
The rooftop pool is nice, no one else was really using it so very peaceful.
Breakfast was nice, juice, toast some cereal and bacon etc. The hotel can arrange bike rental, laundry was expensive so went round the corner for much cheaper, also near a family mart.
Had a really good time, Phuket is fun. Would stay again.

The hotel is really nice and well decorated, located in a good location of Patong. It's not too close to the noisy and crowded discos and bars of Patong, but a few hundred meters away - connected by a hotel's transportation. The hotel is located just a few hundred meters away from Phuket's shopping area, Jungceylon. The hotel also provides guests with transportation to the shopping area and to Patong beach with less than five minutes travel time.

The staff, as well as the owner, are very nice and warm.

The rooms are categorized to types. The big one is really big and fits well with a family or a group of friend. Three of you can stay comfortably there.

Besides the good location, affordable price, nice room, and great staff, the hotel provides an approximately 40 sq.m. red pool on the top of its roof. The pool is so nice that you should try spend an evening there.

I was here from 3rd August to 6th August. They gave me a very warm welcome. Their rooftop pool is awesome. Their buffet breakfast has a good choice for a vegetarian and yes, their staff is very nice especially the three ladies at the front desk, i dont remember all the names, but 'ben' was one of them. They helped me a lot, i was injured also, they were quite polite and helpful.
I would recommend this hotel, its near to patong beach, bangla road and shopping. And their rooms re very well furnished and quite chick and stylish.

Regadrs,
Urvashi

Room Tip: Dont take room facing the left side as their is a Karoake bar which operates whole night. Therefore...

I was here for 4D3N with my friend. I was very satisfy with al.fres.co either in service or the rooms. It is so convenient that able to find family mart, massage centers, cafe & etc at few steps away. 15mins walking distance to Jungceylon but they provide Tuk Tuk service to Jungceylon & Patong beach. I'll definitely will come back for my next Phuket's trip without hesitation.

comfort, neat, clean and tidy hotel, modern deco, it is as good as the pics in thier website. very very nice and helpful staffs(really willing to help), 10-15mins walk to Jungceylon which i think its safe enough to walk alone in the night. free and fast shuttle to the Jungceylon and patong beach. with massage, food court, family mart nearby.
its really worth to stay at this price and i definately will stay there again next time.

Pro's: nice & clean, very friendly and helpful staff, pick up & drop off at the beach, modern facilities, free Internet, excellent breakfast (was included in our deal), 24 hour reception, daily room service, nice pool.

Cons: location is not quite central, about 15 min walk to the beach & main streets with all cafes/restaurants/shops, 10 min walk to the mall. However, hotel does provide daily drop offs to the mall, and drop off & pick ups from the beach.
Can be noisy if your room is facing the side street, instead of the main street. There is a karaoke bar on the side street...
At the check out, hotel tried to charge us some other room's usage of the mini bar, which was quite unpleasant. What we suspect has happened is the room service people have accidentally put our room number instead of the correct room number by mistake.

Overall, nice place to stay, very good value for money and friendly staff.
