    Had a good stay at Gu Hotel, friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms and the hotel is in quite a strategic location. Important to note that the reception is actually at Gig Hotel right opposite Gu and all other facilities like the pool are located at Gig.

    FO manager (lady) forget her name .She very kind and professional. We don’t have enough money to pay for room deposit however she gave us as a option to kept passport with them. however that should not happen they can’t take pre auth for Credit card and have to pay cash for room deposit. Everything good and staff kind. Clean and safe . Motobike can be park at basement and guide with security. No need to worry about that. Halal food restaurant also near by this hotel and i also recommended 1 of restaurant name “Best kebab in town” near by 7eleven . In same line..

    Hidden gem that’s a bargain. Perfect”

    I m generally a reviewer that tends to rate low. I am ridiculously picky .. I can find nothing to fault with this hotel no matter how hard I try. Rooftop infinity pool.. super clean room with elephant shaped towels and a rose made out of napkin. Insanely comfortable bed.. It’s is obvious this hotel values its reputation and public image. I’m still finding little things In the design of room that are awesome. I’ve seen what Thailand has to offer in this price range and there is no reason to look elsewhere to save $5.. i mean seriously.. if your looking for a room that’s quiet and steps to the action you will not do better then this.. just book it. My go to hotel in Phuket for sure. Cons: only con I can come up with is I don’t won’t to get out of bed or leave the hotel.. seriously. I can’t think of one.. ok.. maybe don’t put your arm in elevator door when it’s closing or you may lose it.. that thing closes quick. Awesome place 5 star for the price or really any reasonable price. Good job guys.

My only regret, I wish I could have stayed Longer. In fact, I extended once this trip. Walking to everything, and my room was recently remodeled a bit. I loved it. Will definitely go back .

    The room was great to me. There was some noise from the streets outside, but it didn't bother me too much. As an older woman I hoped to receive some help carrying my heavy bag to my room in a hotel of this level, and I was a bit disappointed to not receive help here. Otherwise I found my stay very grand and would definitely stay again.

    everything is great. location is good. room is okay. rooftop pool and sauna are amazing. only one thing disappointed me was the housekeeping staffs are dishonest. they try to steal my money. when i go back to room after lunch 2 staffs were cleaning my room i found that my backpack was being searched and my money in my bag was taken out. luckily i was back at that moment. so pls lock all valuable items in the suitcase if u go out. i will probably stay in this hotel again coz of the toomrate n facilities.

    Great hotel! Wonderful Breakfast! Perfect location A+++++”

    GU Hotel is part of GIG Hotel, which is double the price. They had our rooms ready by 11am. I was so happy that we didn't have to wait till 2PM like most of the hotels. But when you stay at GU hotel it is pretty much like you are staying at GIG as you can use their swimming pool, gym, breakfast etc. The hotel is just 10 steps away from GIG hotel. so it's like just walking in the corridor. But when it rains it does get annoying. The pool was amazing with a great view of the city. Location itself is 10/10. very close to the shopping mall and everything is happening around you. It was no loud at all we were able to get a good nights sleep without any loud music or people screaming. We didn't have to hire a taxi everything we did by just walking. I lost my swimwear and when I contacted the hotel they were very helpful and concerned about it, they helped me to look for it and found it in the laundry. Staff were great, they were always willing to help. The rooms were a bit small but it didn't matter to us as we spent most of our time outside and in the fabulous pool.

    AMAZING! YES! BOOK IT NOW!”

    I stayed here on 2 separate bookings for a total of 7 nights. As I stated in my previous review: This place is amazing. Book now. You won't be disappointed. You share all the facilities of the main "GIG Hotel", but for a fraction of the price. People at the GIG Hotel were paying $80 per night where I was paying around $20 to stay at GU Hotel. GU Hotel is basically just 2 towers of rooms, all the staff and facilities are from the GIG Hotel. The staff at the GIG Hotel are SUPER friendly and easy to communicate with. The breakfast buffet is really good (it was included in my booking through Agoda). The rooftop facilities at the GIG Hotel are absolutely incredible (infinity pool with saltwater, gym, sauna, bar and restaurant) all with a beautiful view of Patong beach (the sunsets are amazing from the roof). That is what really sets this place apart in my opinion. Try to get a room in tower 2 as tower 3 can be quite noisy. My recommendation is odd numbered rooms e.g. 2XX1/2XX3/2XX5 because they have a view. Even numbered rooms are facing another tower so you have no view and not much natural light.

    Great hotel @ nice location, upgrading WIP”

    Food, Location, Value for Money

    We Hotel@Sansabai is currently upgrading and rebranding to "The GIG Hotel" which they had a new building just right behind their current building. It's clean and new, however the new one is not yet fully renovated. Reception and their restaurant are at the new building while hotel rooms are on the old building. It was a pleasant stay, room is clean and quiet. Location is the best as it's just 5 mins walk from Jungceylon and night market. Everything is easily accessed. So far, their breakfast is 1 of the best that I've tried for a 3 star hotel. Will surely revisit this hotel when they had completed their new building.

    We stay here only for 2 nights, we didnt go out much as it was raining almost everyday, the place have several muslim foods downstairs so it make it really easy to find food and we dont have to walk far esp during rainy days, the location is also nearby to the mall and bangla road. The room are small, but its convenient, simple.
