Nice hotel and location”
Just only stayed at this hotel for a couple of hours before my flight back to Sydney. For what I've experience it is a nice clean hotel, friendly staff and close to many of the attractions in Phuket in walking distances. Only negative I can think of is when I first went into my room the bathroom had a weird smell, it was quickly cleared by turning on the ventilation which aired out the smell.
Disappointed with this hoyel”
Have stayed here before and enjoyed it. This time I was booked into the wrong room which the staff did change but not before I’d unpacked and had to pack again. The air con stopped working the 2nd night and the staff tried to charge me for a drink I hand not had in the upstairs bar. Overall a disappointing experience
Paid for a room months in advance and didnt get the room i paid for with terrible air con. Got a bill when checked out for food/drinks i didn’t have. Lady (Russian i think) on front desk not very nice. Used to like this hotel but will look other hotels next to it in future
Great location ”
It is in the heart of patong area with all facilities around u a super market a dry clean food restaurants all types every thing u will possibly need is there taxis all around u , diving center near bye where I did my first course , I loved the place but breakfast is scanty in options and swimming pool a small one but it did not make that big deal
Staff front desk are nice Cons if there is a problem manager is no where to handle situations, they’ve a problem with the water, they’ve moved me 3 times, no apology or compensation for my time, other then that it’s a great hotel with nice front desk smiley faces that you can barely see In some businesses inThailand now a days
Exceptional value !”
Rooms and hotel areas very tidy Exceptional and trustworthy staff , nothing was too much trouble . A/c worked a treat although a tad noisey. Breakfast while a little plain was more than adequate for me . Great budget hotel in a very good location.
This is a basic accommodation, no frills. The whole place looked tired and in need of some renovation. Whilst the cleaning staff were good, the general feeling was not one of great comfort. There is much better value for money out there.
Big and clean rooms, staff very friendly. Perfect location for market banglaroad and bangla stadium
Great value, Good Location, Quiet Room away from main street”
The hotel is small but clean, tidy and adequately spacious. The hotel is located about 100m from main street, so room is quieter than those at the junction. Walking to seafood market, big shopping malls in about 5 minutes. At the center of Patong.
Excellent location and value for money”
I will use this hotel again on my next trip to Phuket. For the money the rooms are a decent size with an excellent shower room. The soi is small with very little noise. There is a mini mart across the road and a 7/11 down the road. The food in the hotel is very good and priced fairly.
Great value hotel”
I have stayed 3 nights at Hemingways and I enjoyed my stay here. The location is perfect. Walking distance to everything you need ( jungceylon mall, fresh market, food, convinence store etc) Also Bangla road is about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The room was big enough and clean. Bed was huge and the mattress maybe a bit hard for some but it was comfortable for me. The only downpoint is housekeeping staff didn't change the quilt cover for 3 days. But they cleaned the room daily and supplied new towels. Staff is really nice and helpful. Especially Linda from reception is such lovely lady who always has a smile on her face. She helped me to figure out how to use the safe and also with the laundry. All the reception staff are professional and speak good English. The rooftop pool is small but it's still a plus if you want to drink something at the bar and refresh yourself. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you are looking for a clean and nice hotel that is not too expensive
Great value and awesome location ”
We had a clean spacious room with all necessary amenities. The staff was so friendly, welcoming, and helpful with information about the area. My girlfriend and I enjoyed hanging out at the rooftop pool and bar. The bartender was so attentive and was doubling as a DJ, playing music requested by the crowd. The hotel is in a perfect location just minutes from Walking Street, but in a quiet area. Lots of restaurants, bars, shopping just a few steps away from the hotel. Highly recommended!
Stayed at the Hemingways Silk for 6 nights in May, low season so had a great price. Room was of a good enough size with aircon, LCD TV and small balcony. The bathroom was good with a great shower, always hot and good shower heads for plenty of water. I had a room the 8th floor with was next to the pool but did not hear any noise etc - very quiet hotel. Cleaning daily was done well so always clean. Room service had a good selection of western/thai foods but many restaurants and food places close - I never had the breakfast as I never was up early enough, maybe the 10:30am finish could be moved to 11am for the late sleepers, but i did not have an issue with this. The staff were all very happy and accommodating to any additional requests. I had a small issue with one of the airconditioners and they had fixed it within 30 minutes. Thankyou to Linda at the reception - very friendly and great customer service focus - made my stay feel warm and always welcoming. Hotel organised Taxi to airport, allowed later checkout (2pm) on simple request - great. Location good as close to everything in Patong but far enough away not be disturbed when wanting to relax and rest. Very happy with the service will stay again.
Hemingways Silk Hotel is near the major shopping centre of Patong Beach and the entertainment area is within short walking distance of the hotel. The rooms are large and clean with good facilities. Breakfast is good and changed daily. Staff are friendly and very helpful when approached. Hot water can be in short supply in the higher floors but it is a good place to stay in Phuket.
Ideal holiday base”
I was on a 2 week golf holiday to Phuket and found Hemingway's Silk to be the ideal base for my activities. My room was on the eighth floor located neat the swimming pool which I used every day. The hotel is well located for visiting Bangla Road, the beach, shops restaurants and clubs. Dining was ok but a little on the expensive side. Breakfast was included and adequate for me. Staff were very friendly especially Linda on reception who is definitely the hotels greatest asset. Would certainly stay there again.
Strategic location ”
Hotel is strategically located at the heart of Patong Beach, 2mins walking distance to Junceylon Mall and Bangla street. Not over crowded but the location just nice. The room is spacious and clean, balcony with a small table and chairs, small fridge and locker are provided, can use the desktop while waiting at lobby. Highly recommended and will come back for sure!
Value for money ”
Had problems with check in as had many rooms booked via 2 different hotel booking engine. The front office had problems locating my reservation despite me having emailed the confirmation to them 3 weeks ago. Matters sorted after about 30 minutes. Front desk is not friendly as commented by other reviewers, but they are polite. Rooms are clean and is of adequate size. Bathroom is a bit small. Mattress is hard but that is one of the most common complaint in Asean's budget hotels. Breakfast is the same standard fare. Bacon, ham, noodles, mushroom, bread & eggs. Even though there is a notice to indicate that guests can order bacon etc cooked in their preferred manner, the waitress tried to ignore the request, unless you insisted. BAD SERVICE ... Location wise, you can't go wrong with this hotel or the AIM, Icheck inn or the Crib which are all along the same lane. There's a massage parlour about 15 steps away, fresh market (you can buy seafood and get them cooked by any of the stalls on the first floor), food stalls, 7-11, Jungceylon, McDonald and boxing stadium all within walking distance in less than 5 minutes. Patong beach is about 15 minutes walk. Opinion on hotel : OK upon arrival, bad upon check in, good upon seeing room, fair on restaurant service and excellent on overall stay.
Best Surprise in Patong”
A great boutique hotel with top staff, ckean rooms, refreshing rooftop pool and quiet yet very close to Bangla Rd fun! The only con was the predictable, lukewarm buffet breakfast each morning - disappoibting because it was included in the rate. However there are nearby eating options. Would definitely recommend.
great hotel not far from the action”
I very like my stay here very near everything shopping malls boxing stadium and 5/10 minute walk to walking street and the beach room was nice size and very clean and has a nice swimming pool on the roof with bar if you want relax with a drink breakfast is good buffer spread if I back in Phuket oneday I stay here again no probelm
A perfect place to stay!”
Perfect! I think it was a blessing in disguise. One day before I fly to Phuket, Agoda contacted me to inform that my previous booking with another hotel is actually fully booked. Had problem with the system I think. So Agoda give me two options in order to fix the thing. I chose to book another hotel by myself with fully refund by Agoda to my credit card. Not having so much time, I decided to stay at Hemingways Silk for 2 nights. From the beginning until I checked out, it was a perfect stay! Location is a walking distance to Bangla Road, have many tuktuks, motorcycle rent are everywhere around the hotel. The rooftop pool is great, the tour services are also in abundance. Fast check-in and check-out. Staff are all friendly and helpful and I think the Thai people are very lovely. We will feel we are most welcomed there. My room was decorated with honeymoon theme with roses on the bed, cabinet and in the bathroom. Wifi coverage in the room is good. Cleanliness of the room is good. Only 1 drawback - water from the sink cannot be used to boil to make coffee / tea because the water is quite cloudy and brown in colour. Overall, I enjoy my stay in this hotel.
