Teresa C. Solo travelers Australia, January 9, 2013
Great location and large rooms

Easy walk to Bangla road, shopping, dinning and just over the road from the beach
Nice big spacey room, I didnt have elevator access to my room which was a bit of an inconvenience but that's the only negative thing I could say. Lovely helpful staff and central location.
Shopping Tip: Close to the action! Lots of shopping and amazing places to eat.

Shabby, smelly and dirty

free lockers
This is more like a hostel than a hotel. Everything in the room is old, the toilet stains because of the old piping system. That means it is not possible to fix. The staff uses air refreshing spray but it doesn't help at all. The location is not the best neither, still a few blocks from the main shopping mall. One good thing to mention is that they provide free lockers. I personally think it is over-rated and over-charged.

Great location but bad room condition

Great location and hotel staff are all friendly
Hotel small and less maintenance. Hotel lobby is very hot because no air-conditional. Lift very smelly and slow. Hotel breakfast taste no good, few choices and everyday same dishes. Small room, noisy, toilet smelly, no review because block by other building. We request one king/queen size bed but hotel combine 2 single bed for me. Expensive which i think no worth it.lousy hotel and lousy breakfast. Only few things that I feel good which is strategic location, just 3 min walk distance to Patong beach. Hotel staffs are all very friendly. Like the hotel swimming pool.

Royal Suite Only

Large Room and very cold air cond
This hotel is good if you book the Royal Suite. Forget the other rooms. They are noisy and too small. I will alaways come back here as its close to the beach and Bangla. The massage next door great (Bali Hai) and the girls do a great in room service.
Nightlife Tip: Beach is good but Bangla has some very entertaining ladies.

Very very good location

Big rooms with good aircon
Very good location. All hot spot are within walking ranging. To shopping area is like 5 mins. A lot of massage shop around hotel. But Hotel lobby does smell quite a bit.

Old Hotel with decaying rooms.

Room size and pleasant staff.
The rooms are large but very old. A welcoming party of cockroaches met as the moment we began to unpack other unknown insects were not impressed when draws were opened. The bed was very noisy and creaked every time your tuned in bed - loud enough to wake you up. The basin in the bathroom had no hot water. The shower head was secured by one screw so when the water was turned on the shower-head spun around and sprayed the ceiling. The water supply pipe to the toilet was continually dripping. The most distracting issue however was the fact that literally 4 metres from the door of the room was a large construction site - they were preparing to pour the concrete on the fourth floor so the noise level was full on. As I had gone to Patong for some dental work the room offer no retreat for recovery. On either side of the front entrance here were two massage parlours that promoted there services vigorously. My wife did not feel safe so after a day we began to look for alternative accommodation. After Agoda confirmed that were could change hotels, but with a penalty of one nights rate we took a couple of days finding a different hotel first looking on the internet and secondly by doing a physical inspection – things always look better on the internet. As it was peak season we found it difficult to secured alternative accommodation – stress that is not condusive to a good holiday. The only thing going for this hotel is the staff - it is a poor hotel with good staff. Would I recommend this hotel to others – No. Trevor from Brisbane Australia.

Great location - But thats all

The hotel is right on the beach. Pretty standard for that cost, no room service, the phone has no numbers on it,,so where will you dial, after staying for 3 days, i requested if I can check out at 1 PM coz i had some packing to finish, and they denied it saying the rule is 12 noon. And if I check out any minute after 12, they'll charge me 200 Baht for every hour. Who does that? The TV has only one english channel, bathroom is very small and the room I got had a creaking bed. So all in all, I'll never come back.

Decent Place

The best thing about this place is that it is close to the beach.
Pros- The staff here are very friendly, the breakfast was pretty good, and my room seemed to be very clean. The hotel is in a good location very close to the beach and local night life. The pool area is nice its on the top floor of the hotel. Cons- There is a construction site literally 5 feet from the Balcony so if you want to sleep past 7:00 AM find another hotel. The mattress in my room was almost the worst mattress I have ever slept on .
