Nice hotel,great location, fantastic food!

Clean modern rooms, hotel restaurant above average, very friendly staff! Roof top pool great bar and v iews
this hotel is small and very modern. only three weeks old the western owners have really made sure that this hotel is at western standards. the location was walking distance to main centre of patong, shopping centres and the beach. although located in the hub of this area, you would know you were so close to the night life as it was very quiet. the rooftop pool and bar area, offers a fantastic view of patong and mountains surounding the hotel. we enjoyed having a drink with a lovely breeze and a friendly chat with staff! the only advise i would offer, is not to have your laundry done by the hotel. we were not offered a price list and for only few items we were charged excessively. around the corner you can have your laundry done for 50 bht per kilo, we were charged around 900 bht for not even a kilo. overall, i will recommend this hotel and i would stay here again!
Travel tip: a must see tour - james bond island - this takes you away from the bustle of patong and really shows the beautiful scenery of thailand. the tour wasn't too long and the sites fantastic! not recommended: simon's the drag show - this theatre production presented to be very sloppy, unrehearsed and tacky. i left with the feeling that this show had a reputation at one time as being a spectacular show, however, now just relies on this reputation alone to draw customers. at the end of the show, the "artist" line the drive way trying to coax customers to have their photo taken with them for a price. this was not a controlled situation and they all appeared greedy and desperate! cameras and recording equipment are not allowed in the theatre, so outside it was a free for all! i enjoy drag shows and live performances of all kinds, but think your money would be spent better at another attraction!!!

Great location but small room

a good location
we stay in Hemingway's hotel for 1 night only. it is located in a central point. about 10 minutes (or less) walking distance from the shopping center that also include bar and resturants.and also not far from the night area. the room is a bit small, but if you need the basic for one night - it's a good value for your money.

Nicely sized rooms

Nice rooms
Nice big rooms. Could do with a larger tv in the bed rm. the one we had was a small puny 22" lcd hung damn far away from the masterbed. Generally a nice n cosy suite we had.

Hit, Miss or Maybe?

Excellent food
This was our 5th and sad to say, probably our last visit to The Hemingway's Hotel. The service in the hotel used to be pretty good and along with clean, comfortable rooms and great food. Alas the service was so poor that it let down the hotel's good points. On our 1st night I reported by phone to Reception that our TV was broken and we were unable to receive pictures, we were told an engineer would be called. Despite a further 3 calls and reminders to Reception staff each time we entered and exited the Hotel - nothing was done, no engineer, no apology, no refund of any kind offered. Very disappointing!!!
Shopping Tip: Shabu Shi, an all you can eat sushi and sushimi restaurant in the Jungceylon Shopping Mall is well worth a try.

Standard Inn

Just as expected, it is an inn with clean room. The location is fine and just 5 minutes walk to the shopping center and bars. It is fine if you do not have enough budget. The internet connection did not work during my stay and I have to use the weak wifi of hotel nearby.
