Contemporary Hotel close to everything
Great open air atmosphere day and night
we were upgraded to a sea view room on the 5th floor. i'd definitely recommend asking for a room on a higher floor as the lower rooms have very tiny and dark balconies.
the rooms are great - very clean and comfortable. the drinks in the mini bar are free and re-stocked every day, which was a nice feature. no alcohol, just soft drink and juice. great to bring to the beach and pool.
breakfast each morning is good

Excellent Hotel, Good Location, Friendly Staff
Stylish look, everything clean, great amenities, excellent service, great breakfast
Other travelers have commented that the staff service at the hotel was below par. On the contrary, we found the staff to be excellent - responsive, friendly, and helpful.
Here are the best points we found about the hotel:
- free wifi
- breakfast was excellent: western, Asian, eggs made-to-order, fresh fruit, various fruit juices
- room with fridge stocked with *complimentary* sodas/water every day
- location at the north end of Patong Beach, far enough away from the raucous night life (but close enough to walk/taxi to, if that's what you're into)
- pool is large enough and well kept (though they could use a few more umbrellas).
- beach is just 5 minutes away walking
If you're looking for a Starbucks/McDonald's, walk southward along the beach road (out the hotel, to your right) about 10 minutes.
If you're looking for a much larger mall (with Carrefour, 2 Starbucks, lots of restaurants and shopping), head towards the Jungceylon mall by turning left as you exit the hotel, then turning right onto the main street. Walk for about 15 minutes. Taxis will take you there for 200 baht (which doesn't seem worth it considering how short of a distance it is).

A real dream hotel
super slick design, succulent breakfast buffet, free minibar, happy hour, a bathroom and walk-in dressing to die for
The Nap Patong hotel stuns by its design. The rooms are big, have a comfy terrace, and the design is sober but modern. There is a walk-in dressing and bathroom that I could only dream off. So stylish. The balcony was ideal to lounge after a day roaming around or at the nice pool with jacuzzi corner. And happy hour ;-) Even a (small) gym, free of charge. Wifi included: in room, at pool, at reception...
There was a free minibar with softdrinks in the room, a welcome drink and fruit plate on arrival and coffee & tea making facilities. But the best of all was the sumptuous breakfast buffet. It had different things everyday and i got frustrated that I couldn't taste it all - sooo much variety.
Location is perfect: at 5 min walk from the beach, but in a quieter street away from the hustle and bustle of the commercial town center - but still within walking distance of restaurants and all happening places.
Since I am a perfectionist: I would like to give Nap Patong the following feedback (so they could become the ultimate dream hotel):
- the music at breakfast and pool is nice and jazzy and loungy, but they seem to have only one CD - so we heard the same songs half a dozen time in our 3 days there.
- pool could be open longer than 19h - for a little refreshing night dip.
- the extra services offered (laundry, taxi, trips, spa) are a few hundred baths more expensive than in town - but i guess that's how they make money
But as i said - it is a dream hotel - close to perfect
Just on the corner of the street of the hotel is the Patong night food stalls - fresh seafood, shakes, local (and international) food at good prices

Modern, clean, near the Beach!
great location, clean, free mini-bar, awesome free breakfast, great pool, friendly staff
We loved our stay at the Nap! It was even better than we expected and wish we had planned to stay longer than we did.
Upon arrival we were greeted with welcome drinks while being checked in. We loved the outdoor lobby and the decor of the entire place. Of course the decor might not be for everybody (very modern) but it is totally our style!
The rooms are simple yet cozy. We loved the big shower and awesome balcony. Beds are comfy.
The hotel is about a 5 minute walk to the beach and about 15 minute walk to the Bangla Rd. We thought the location was perfect. We were more interested in the beach and less interested in the night life of Bangla Rd. The Nap is far enough from the night life that it's pretty quiet but close enough that you can walk (or take a tuk tuk). We also enjoyed many of the restaurants around the hotel.
The mini bar in the room is free and they restock it everyday!! This was wonderful! We would load our bags with the drinks and take them to the beach. Then we'd have more for the next day. I've never been in a hotel where the mini-bar was free. Love it!
We enjoyed the breakfast each day. There are options for everyone. Everything from Asian style breakfast, omelet bar, cereal, breads, fruit, etc. And many different juice options!
The pool is nice. We enjoyed it almost everyday. It is clean and big enough.
The staff at the Nap are friendly and very accommodating. Pretty much everyone we interacted with spoke English. Also, when we arrived we had some small ants in our room. It wasn't too big of a deal, but we mentioned it to the front desk. Someone was at our door to deal with the ants in less than 5 minutes! And he did a thorough job of getting rid of them too. We were impressed.
We really loved our time here and felt the value for what we paid was well worth it!

Great hotel and fantastic service!
Friendly staff, new furnishings, great location
The hotel is just beautiful and so many good things about it. The staff are so friendly and always provide service with a smile! Room size is decent but great features and definitely makes one feel welcomed! Great location too!
Only downside is the lack of pool service. Not an issue at all as the pool area is just amazing!

great hotel for how much you pay
modernised, roomy, good a/c ,bathroom and good breakfast
-genuine hotel staffs except some receptionist speaking poor english. (unable to handle phone calls)
-nice breakfast (however did not like those artificial juices. instead of 8 different artificial juices, one fresh orange juice would be much better for me)

luxurious modern hotel
Modern Furnishings, bedroom & bathroom.
Excellent hotel room. Big private balcony, plus nice large bathrooms. Breakfast was very comprehensive, full american. Really enjoyed the pool and Jacuzzi spa in the evening, plus all the pay tv channels and internet mean you have enough in the hotel to just stay there and relax. Walking distance to the Patong beach is a plus. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Patong Beach, Kata Beach and Karon beach are all great beaches. Worth spending the day at at least one or two of them

Great hotel and nice location
Nice location about 2 blocks from the beach and about 5 minutes from the bar scene and music if that interests you. Breakfast was adequate, but nothing extravagant. Rooms were good sized and very clean. Decorated in the "thai minimalist style", they look great, but sacrifice some of the "creature" comforts of other hotels for stylistic reasons. Free WIFI was nice.
Be careful renting jet-skis on the beach; make sure you take inventory of any prior damage so you don't end u the victim of a scam artist trying to bilk you for 100's of dollars of "damage" that you really didn't do.

overall is good
modern and new, clean room, staff is helpful
The stay in the Nap is generally good.
The hotel is close to the beach.
The staff is helpful and nice.
Only thing is that there were some smells coming from drainage,
although no blocking.
