At the centre of everything”
I cannot claim to have been too surprised by the the experience we had at Apsara Residence as I specifically booked this accommodation (3 rooms) for me and my friends. I was however pleasantly surprised at how accurate the pictures was when it came to the rooms and the friendliness of the staff. I searched all the travel booking sites for accommodation at Patong, Phuket and chose Apsara for the location, descriptions of the rooms and reviews of the hotel. I must say that they were instrumental in aiding me to choose where we stayed. Enjoyed the five nights stay at Apsara (4 nights and 1 night).
Great hotel for its value”
Apsara Residence is a great hotel for its value. The location is very good. 2 min walk to JungCeylon, 2min walk to Bangla Road, 10min walk to PaTong Beach. Hotel Staffs are always smiling and helpful, easy to communicate with them in english. Hotel Manager is very helpful, you can ask him anything about Phuket and he will tell you what he knows all about.
General Manager goes the extra mile!”
having read previous reviews, i was convinced that this was a good deal and indeed it was! mr gunter, the owner of apsara was really helpful. provided many many tips about phuket and even took the extra effort to draw out directions for us. best gm i have met so far. rooms were cleaned thoroughly everyday. had a slight problem with the water heater but was fixed almost immediately after giving feedback. great location to nightlife, shopping, food and with family mart just next door. try booking the superior room as they are much more peaceful. all in all i would definitely return to the apsara residence!
Cosy, welcoming staff and informative manager...”
I would without a doubt stay again at Apsara Residence on my return to Phuket (Patong). Again the location is great, to the right and around the corner is the shopping centre. To the left up the road is Bangla Road or party central. Dotted along the opposite side of the hotel are mini-bars for a taste of Bangla Road. Not to mention the massage (Thai, Foot, Oil and Hand massages). Try to request the lower floors - first or second. All the rooms are the same and managed well by the cleaning staff on site. It's the stairs I am trying to elude to. It's a great head clearing climb after a night a Bangla Road and a good warm-up the morning after to wake the limbs. If you're flight out is not until 10PM out of Phuket, I suggest to make arrangements with Management (Gunter)to hold on to your room - even at the cost of another nights lodging - well worth the investment.
Great Location and very clean cosy standard room”
very nice owner and rooms are perfect for what you pay. i paid a lot more at other rooms in patong and i get a lot less comfort as at apsara residence. internet is really perfect. never had this in thailand. rooms are all new. my standard room had double windows. still could hear some noise outside but not to get me out of my sleep
Strategic location and close to anything”
I just have my 3 days short holidays in Phuket from 19th-22nd October, i highly recommend staying in Apsara Residence if you love nightlife and shopping because it is near to everything, shopping complex, nightlife,seaside and very convenient to have a 24 hour grocery just below the hotel.The room is clean, spacious , relatively quiet it looks like just recently renovated with hot shower, plasma TV, king size bed, fridge, and free WI-FI access. You can also hire a scooter from the hotel owner to travel around the city if you like. It is comparatively outstanding among other hotel that area, with 5 star service. The staff is very friendly and always service with a smile.
Most locals had not heard of Apsara Residence. I had to show them the address before they kinda knew where it was. When I got off the airport transfer on a crowded street, I too had to ask the driver where the hotel was. He pointed in one direction and left. If you blinked, you would surely miss the front desk. It was a small counter, kinda like the tour desks you see all around Patong. But check-in was quick and efficient. They handed you a password for Wifi access. I was shown to a small room on the first floor. Room was clean and comfortable with a decent bathroom. At night, I could hear the music from the nearby bars but it didn't bother me. The location is great. Jungceylon and Bangla Road was just around the corner. The beach was a 6min walk away. Everything was nearby. For the price I paid on Agoda, I think I got great value for my money.
Great budget hotel”
Have to say that I had some hiccups while here but everything was rectified when I spoke to Gunther the manager. He is a very fair and reasonable man in every way. I definitely will be back some day. I extended my stay by 5 days after my initial 5 days so that i hope says something to you. You can book for cheaper if you email the hotel direct. Ill email gunther next time. Every day when I didnt forget to leave the key for the room at the front desk when venturing out. meant i got my room cleaned. I found that the ladies who did the cleaning did a great job. I would of loved to have tipped them Some people say that you should ask for a lower room. yeah why not ask if you can get it. I asked but didnt get a lower room due to a older 70+ year old lady needing that lower room due to mobility issues. Which reasonable man is going to argue with that? Gunther the manager was great and let me know re this and i was fine by that. Have to give a special mention re the manager as he always always helped me out with any questions that I had during my stay which was a lot let me tell you He never made me feel bad when asking them. Some people say that you should have lifts in a hotel. Yeah I agree to a point..but in Patong beach all hotels mostly dont have lifts. This is of course reflected on the price of Apsara. Probobly not a good place if you cant walk up steps thats for sure but otherwise its great exercise after many beers on a big night out hehe. Overall it is a very very noisy area and to me it didnt bother me at all at the slightest. Bring some ear plugs and you will have blissful sleep like I had every night! People complain about noise? I don't get those people as ear plugs would solve that. If you have a child. well i could understand that you cant put ear plugs on a kid so that would be the only reason for an unhappy custo
great and highly recommended”
i stayed in apsara for 5 days, highly recommended to everybody who is visiting phuket and having trouble finding good hotel you can come here. the owner (gunther) was very helpful as i was there it was raining heavily for 5 days straight (bad luck i guess) he gave us a lot of information on our trip as we were afraid of getting cheated on by the locals. next trip im very sure ill be staying in apsara again. only 4minutes walk to bangla road, jungcylon mall, boxing stadium and easy for me as a muslim, sansabai road has alot of halal food restaurant :)
Value for money”
I booked the hotel for 2 nights and I ended up staying for 5. Excellent location, great price, great personnel who spoke English. The hotel is located just a 3-5 min walk from Patong Beach and Bangla Road (the street where most clubs in Phuket are located). The rooms are practically new since the hotel opened just a few months ago (I met the owner and he told me)There is a convenient store right next to it. The staff are very nice and helpful. The owner of the hotel is European which gives the hotel a different perspective. Don't expect something fancy (you are not paying for it anyway) but I was more than happy about what i found and saw. Rooms are new and clean and they get cleaned every day. The only downside is that they don't have a safe box. The internet connection is very good for an Asian country (and from many EU countries as well) Completely satisfied with my stay, I would definitely stay there again
Good location, spacious and clean rooms”
we booked a standard double room and were upgraded to a deluxe double room. so this comment will be about this type of room. tne room was very spacious, clean, had aircon and even a balcony. the bed was big and very comfortable for sleeping. the rooms had all free and stable wifi. the hotel even offered laundry service. the staff was very helpful and helped us in every situation. gunter, a belgium, who is the owner of the hotel, gave us important information how to behave in patong as this was our first time here. the loction is very good. there are several restaurants in the neighbourhood and even a supermarket next to the hotel. all in all i would like to recommend this hotel with the best rating taking in consideration the price we paid for it.
Read This! I had an enjoyable stay.”
Date of stay: 28-31 Jan 2020. Group of 3, Rooms 302,303 and 112. Not sure what's the fuss about all these comments here. I had an enjoyable and the most pleasant stay. This location allows you to cover the heart of Patong. Pro: Rooms, bed sheets, pillowcases, towel, floor mat, and the toilet was clean. A good budget place to stay. Guest Friendly, if you book the room for two. Water and toilet paper left outside the room daily. Room make up done automatically if you put the sign on the knob. The tour packages sold near the reception counter is one of the cheapest. Direct pick up from the hotel. I got a deal of 1500 baht for the PhiPhi island tour. Haggle more if you can. 5min walk to Bangla road, just bars beside and around. On the way to Bangla road, you have a few restaurants good food, barber, massage parlors. its basically in a great location, bike rental is just opposite this hotel. Turn right and another 5 min walk is Banzaan fresh market. The way to the mall is on the left. Cons:
Lovely Hotel with Nice Atmosphere”
a hotel in the middle of the centre of patong beach, not the most quiet area but if you want quiet you don't need to come to the hassle of patong. you better go bang tao beach or nai harn... welcomed by very nice staff and owner. outside the hotel looks like a normal building, let me say 10 years old but inside everything seems renovated. basic but clean. i had a standard room and paid just a little bit of money for high season, consider some noise because standard rooms are street side rooms, and bars are opposite the street. the hotel was fully booked and everything went smooth. the hotel owner mister gunter takes the time to inform the guest. check in and check out just took 5 minutes. i definitely come back.
it was a small residance hotel near bangla road nightlife street,you can go patong beach and city center easily,only 2-3 minutes to the center.hotel personel very nice and kind.they are trying to help you everytime.we like them too much and stayed at this hotel 2 times.we went to singapur for 5 days and we left our luggage here without any money.then when we came back and stayed 2 days more.
Lokasi yang strategis dengan staff yang ramah”
Apsara Residence adalah hotel yang sangat strategis di San sabai road, sangat dengan dengan pusat keramaian seperti Jungceylon Mall, Bangla Road, Banzan fresh market, dll. Staf hotel yang ramah serta pelayanan room service yang baik, hotel selalu dibersihkan setiap hari dan handuk selalu diganti baru setiap harinya
If you dont mind some noise in the morninghours and taking steps to get to your room (no elevator)apsara residence is a good place to be.With a central location near the market,shopping opportunities,the beach and nightlife.Checking in went fluently.Reception is helpful .Rooms are ok and well cleaned.no breakfast but lots of possibilities in walking distance.
Great value hotel, clean, great location”
Apsara is a great hotel, especially great for the price. The location is perfect for Bangla Road and Pating Beach and the shopping mall. Rooms are comfortable with all the necessary amenities. Staff very helpful.
Good place, nice room, bathroom poor”
I spent one week at apsara residence, it was quite nice. The place is very good, short walk from beach and city centre. Not noisy. My room was clean, but not bright, i saw other ones brighter. Some stuff didn't work properly, like toilet and air conditioned, but upon my request, all worked fine. The bathroom is too small according to the price. Wireless internet worked perfectly, except sometimes. Staff is friendly. Apart from the room, the residence doesn't offer anything else. To me relation price/place/facilities is good.
Clean and comfortable ”
Upon arrival, we were greeted by the owner/manager, Gunther, who was a very friendly and helpful character to which we did not hesitate to ask questions being first time visitors to Phuket. Apsara is situated in Patong nearby Bangla Rd and Jungcylon Shopping Mall and other attractions making it a great base to venture from. Accommodation is great value for travellers on a budget. Clean and comfortable.
comfortable hotel with nice room and facilities.”
I would like to stay in Apsara again for my next trip to Phuket. Nice room, free wifi , strategic location and friendly hotel owner n staffs.
