Standard accommodation near to the city

hospitality, the restaurant, price

Three blocks from Patong Beach, Hemingway's is situated on a quiet street shared with a few other hotels, a moped hire and excursion retailer, and a salon/wedding studio, with a small convenience store just around the corner. It is a short walk to the beach and Patong's buzzing nightlife though still relatively obscure in many taxi driver's geographic knowledge. You may well need to show taxi drivers the address of the hotel, which is printed on the room keys. We arrived around midnight and checked in with a rather dozy receptionist working the night shift. We had to wake him up, and after receiving a room key, I was shocked to open the door to a dishevelled bed and another hotel guest sleeping in it, who I awoke by opening the door. The receptionist working through the day was much more competent. Overall, the staff were very warm and friendly, and the restaurant served up tasty, reasonably-priced dishes. The wide-angle images advertising the rooms give the illusion of spaces larger than they really are; and, as the bathroom windows are covered only by a screen, the bathroom door must be kept shut to keep the room cool with the air conditioner. Given the 'open air' nature of the bathrooms, I would recommend bringing mosquito repellant. A bit rough around the edges but definitely good value for the price.
Travel tip: The standard taxi fare in Patong is ฿200, so if you plan to get a taxi between town and the hotel, try to bargain down as the drive is not even 5 minutes with traffic. If you are arriving into Phuket International Airport very late in the evening, give the hotel a ring prior to your arrival and ask to have an airport transfer arranged. We paid ฿700 for the transfer upon check-out.

Cosy hotel with great service

Near to Jung Ceylon
7.7
Nice cosy hotel with pleasant service staff. Though there was a balcony in the room, it was facing the other hotel on the opposite side of the road, so view-wise, it wasn't great but it provides a place to dry your laundry if you do your own laundry. Minutes away from Jung Ceylon and Banzaan Market but a bit far from the beach, though it is still walkable, 3 streets away. Breakfast was nice, though it was only limited to 3 choices from the menu and free flow cereal, toasts and beverages. All in all, it was a nice trip, the staff was friendly and helpful, the room was quite large with a sizeable array of tv channels, hot shower and air conditioning.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: There's street food stalls nearby the Banzaan Market which is just behind Jung Ceylon, it opens around evening time and the food there is cheap and good. Try the roll pancakes, iced tea and orange juice and others too!

Friendly Staff.

The hotel is very quiet. The walk to the beach was no more than 7 - 10 minutes at a leisurely pace. The shower lived up to the hype. Great pressure and never ran out of hot water. The staff always greeted you with a smile and got to know me by name. The wireless internet was consistent and fast. The room was cleaned daily, fresh towels changed daily. For what I paid I don't have a negative comment about this hotel. I will definately be staying here again. Special thanks to Victor, Hong and Pat.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Go see Tan at the Tima Pharmacy and ask her to hook you up with Mina for Tour Suggestions. At Mina's recommendation I went on a Phi Phi Island and Similan Island tour. Both were wonderful.

Value and Location

Clean room, good value, adequate breakfast, quiet street, but close to the action.
7.3
Booked this room last minute, very happy with it. The room was clean, had a mini-bar, standard amenities, and several western television channels. Very good for the price. The location is about a 5 min stroll to the main attractions (bars/restaurants/etc). Very convenient, but quiet and not surrounded by the loud music and crowds.

This was actually my second stay in this hotel. I had originally booked for 2 days, but extended and additional 2 days. The hotel is very clean and on a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle, but only about a 5-10 min walk to all the shopping/action. The front desk staff was nice (although new, so not totally together), the bar/restaurant staff very nice and accommodating, the owner was not friendly at all. The breakfast was good, not a huge selection, but made to order eggs, fresh fruit, breads, cereals, etc.
