      Comfortable, quiet, close to anything you might need

      The hotel is located in a quiet area. The room was quiet an comfortable. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast was simple but there was enough choices to satisfy the average person. The hotel is located at a walking distance to the mall and Bangla street. Would definitely stay there again without hesitation.

      Great position”

      Location, price and quiet.

      Firstly, the hotel I booked is different to the one I stayed in. I wasn't advised of the change. Having said that I was upgraded to their best suite which was fantastic with one exception, it had no privacy as the hotel next door was only a few meters away therefore you couldn't have your curtains open.I tried to change to the street side however they didn't have any similar rooms. I was going to extend my stay for 14 days but opted to change to another hotel that gave me privacy. This hotel is well located and is good value if you select the road side standard rooms.

      it will be an ideal place to stay to get a relaxing and quite holiday but yet not too far from the town. hence, there was no worries about the meals. the room is big, well maintained and i love the lcd tv. the friendly staff there was always ready to give help and always put a big smile whenever they greet you. the food from the restaurant is delicious and it is not pricy as how the other hotel did. it is very suitable for the guest who doesn't want to leave from the cozy hotel like me. love the environment and shall bring my spouse to enjoy here!

      Reasonable Rate

      It was such a great night staying there in Phuket. Hemingway was the way beyond my expectations that the room was so clean and large. The bed is quite big and the toilet is very clean and large. I would really have to say that this hotel has trained the receptionists so well that I was so impressed with their friendly service. There was a problem with the air conditioner in my room, the next day they immediately take care of my concern changing the room for me within an hour. Additionally, the rate for this such amazing and wonderful room is really reasonable. You just take a ten minute walk to the beach and five minute walk to the shopping center. All in all, I would recommend anyone who's gonna visit Phuket at Patong, you should get a chance to stay in this friendly and wonderful hotel i could say.

      Decent affordable hotel”

      Location, breakfast

      Arranged for hotel transfer before arriving at Phuket. A very pleasant surprise that the hotel GM had a good command of English, making the arrangement smooth. Arrived at the hotel, and was greeted with a welcome drink. Checking in was a little slow, as the receptionist was constantly answering phone calls. We booked a total of 5 rooms, and 2 rooms were upgraded to the deluxe room. The room was decent, with the usual towels, hair dryer etc. However, the toilet was a little cramped, with no separate bathing area. This resulted in wet floors after showers. Faced problems with the door of the hotels - we were stuck in my room and could not open the door; whereas my friends could not close their door easily. Breakfast was decent, but service was really slow. Maybe we all arrived at one go, and they were overwhelmed, but the restaurant was pretty empty, so we were a little shocked at their slow service. The walls of the room are very thin, such that neighbours complained when we laughed/talked a little too loudly. Location of hotel was great, near the beach, although a little secluded/difficult to find. A good idea to have a map with you, and just point the location of the hotel to the tuktuk driver.

      Had an enjoyable stay at this hotel. The room was very spacious and seemed to be very new. Large comfy bed, large bathroom with good shower. Large TV in room. Nicely decorated room. Good location, walking distance to nightlife but far away enough to be nice and quiet at night. The restaurant is also very good. Reasonable prices, large portions and tasty food. Nice and friendly staff, good laundry service. Would recommend this hotel as is reasonably priced.

      no tea/coffee making facilities in room

      I stayed in a single room-plenty big enough and had a double bed.I stayed on New Years eve and there was quite a bit of noise from the gala dinner at the big hotel next door,but thats to be expected and it did finish shortly after midnight. Best power shower I've ever had-very powerful. Nice interior design in the room. About a 5 min walk from Jungceylon Shopping centre and 5-10 min walk from the beach.Near enough but sufficiently far away from the noise and sights of Bangla Road! Very good value for money.Will definitely stay there again

      A new standard of quality and amenities for this p”

      The place is new and well designed, the shower head is amazing, new kettles, amazing food in restaurant

      This place was a real find. Compared to other guest houses/hotels at the same price and even higher, there is NO comparison. Victor the General Manager on-site is a brilliant host as are the rest of his staff. The rooms are really well done, beds with duvet are really comfortable as is the amazing shower. This place is 5 stories with a lift which is nice. The food in the restaurant is really nice, both western and thai food is very well done. We ended up staying 3 more nights (6 total) and found ourselves eating at the restaurant a lot and worked our way around the menu. There is a bit of construction noise around the area, but this is true in all of Patong/Phuket, the whole island is being upgraded, expanded and the like...all for the better.

But The Dust along the street is very uncomfortable...maybe because there are some buildings under construction along the way from Hotel to Jungceylon.

      Price was very reasonable, service of staff very friendly, the bed was very comfortable, not too hard, perfect. also shower was with lots of pressure, what is unusual in Thailand.
      10 min walk to the beach and Bangla Road, TUK TUK cost everytime 200 Baht, so who want to go by tuk tuk everytime, can be cheaper to rent a hotel more central. no swimming pool, this i found very negative, because to the beach is around 15min walk.

      i would recomend it, and book again, it is near to big jungceylon shopping center (max. 5 min walk) and to banzaan plaza, also the thai boxing stadium is nearby. 7eleven, laundry, travel agency, massage is 1 min. walk, also pharmacy and atm. hotel has no joines fee, so also very positive. the hotel is quite in a new complex with lots of new hotels around, so not soo much action like downtown patong.

      Items stolen from room over 2 days. Stayed 5 days. Hotel run down, room doesn’t look like photos at all. Shower is either scolding hot or cold, no in between. Hard to communicate with staff. Housekeeping throwing away important things. Shower floods whole bath, drain improper. Housekeeping not locking door. Certainly could find a better property for same amount or less. Would not stay here again due to theft and incompetence of staff.

      We were transferred from the hotel we booked to it's sister hotel, Hemingway's Silk couple of blocks away. We stayed there throughout out vacation. It should be stated clearly about the exact hotel. The type of room also very misleading which says inclusive of breakfast. No breakfast for our room was told when we check in. Another type of exactly same room without breakfast was much cheaper. Should have book that if we knew. bed is so hard. No balcony. Plus side is it has swimming pool. Overall stay was good.

      Nearby Jungceylon mall, banzaan market and quiet

      The room was good, air conditiner worked well, good location. But the story about the handling staff is just lack of performance. The story began when i booked at 4 nights at Hemingway's hotel.. Once arrived at night, the staff said that the room was full booked and should transferred to Silk hotel (one group as Hemingway hotel) and stay there at Silk hotel until my last date of checkout date. Then, i should walk to silk hotel with my luggage and no provided any shuttle car to the Silk hotel. Cleared to check in at Silk hotel for the first night. The 2nd day, informed by Silk hotel staff that i must back again to Hemingway hotel because of my booking was at Hemingway. This is just different story that the Hemingway's staff informed me yesterday. Again, there's no shuttle bus arrangment to Hemingway hotel and i should walk around 500m-700m with my luggage and checked in Hemingway hotel until the end of my stay.
