Love this place, will definitely stay here again.”
i am a female flashpacker from indonesia. i have stayed in lamai guesthouse just last week. i rent 1 standard room for myself, while my other 2 friends rent a deluxe room. i specifically said when i book the rooms through agoda that we don't want rooms on the highest floor (since it has no elevators) and i want adjacent rooms for the 3 of us. we arrived at 10 at night, and like all the review about lamai guesthouse, the night receptionist (a boy with glasses) treated us indifferently and somehow looked irritated (probably caused by my too eager questions about everything), i don't know was it caused by his personality or his lack of english language, but just ignore his indifference, he is actually nice below his cold surface. we got 2 adajacent rooms at the second floor. it looks like that there are only 4 rooms on the 2nd floor. my standard room is clean, the sheets and towels (body and hand towels) are clean. the bathroom is also clean. there is adequate supply of toilet tissue. water is good, there is hot and cold water shower. the ac is nice. the cable tv shows many channels, although some film channel are dubbed into thai. there is small terrace if you open one side of the glass wall. there are no free mineral water bottles, though, but it's ok, since family mart (a kind of smaller 7-11 or alfamart in indonesia) is available 24-hours at the front of the guesthouse. wifi reception is very good from my room. the deluxe room is bigger, with queen size bed. the thing different from my standard room is the availability of pc and coloured laser printer. the pc has lan card and wifi reception lan card. the rooms are cleaned everyday, and the towels are changed. at the lobby, there are beach towels, free of charge, but remember to write your name on the book above it, and return it after use. there are free books for reading, also. we don't take breakfast at the guesthouse, because it's not included in the room rates. there are motorbikes (new nuvo!) for re
This guesthouse was a really pleasant place to stay. We were able to visit the bustle of Patong during the day and night but had a quiet get away to sleep. They have several mopeds that you can hire out for only 200 Baht per day which is a really good deal if you want to go to a quieter beach such as Kata 20 minutes ride away. The taxis in the area are very expensive an so is the shopping so if you visit Bangkok first buy what you want there, Patong is more than 10 times the prices!
Hotel is located on the outskirts of Pathong so you will need either use taxi or rent your own vehicle to reach main Pathong attractions (one can get a scooter for rent in Hotel by the way). It's never a problem for me as i used to rent a bike. Hotel facility itself is nice, i don't ave any negative comments. The room i stayed in was big and clean, light enough, also it the balcony faced towards the road and green hill across it. My conclusion is Lamai guesthouse is surely sutable for those who travel alone as well as in couples.
great cheap hotel family on phuket”
My current favorite cheap accomodation on phuket ,have several hotels on phuket in this Lamai family,very near to the nightlife if you have a bike,quit big room with big bed,tv,hot water and balcony,even have free wifi but it stops working one day and not get fixed in 3 days,dont know what happens after, have construction/building nearby - heard no noise,not a con for me
Good budget place with The Comedy Channel in English!”
Highly recommend! Big TV with English channels! So nice, and rare in Thailand. Comfy air con and fridge with 2 free waters. A doable walk (15 minutes) to the beach, with a Night Market halfway with reasonable food prices which are rare at Patong! No elevator if you have mobility issues. Standing in the elevated shower next to a big window was odd, tho I could have taken a bath, and how often do you get a bathtub in Thailand? Quiet at night. No bars nearby cranking music thank heavens! A close walk to a nightly Cabaret show worth a look. 24 hour Family Mart one minute walk. I would stay here next time, first choice. For a budget traveler it's great and you will not find a better deal near Patong.
Good budget hotel away from much traffic noise ”
Pros: 1) The hotel is not much far from patong beach. 2) Room was good with all facilities like AC, fridge, Computer with Webcam, free wiif... 3) Hotel staffs were very good and friendly. 4) Easy accesible to Phuket nightlife clubs, shopping malls and restaurants Cons: 1) Have no lifts in the guesthose, this is the biggest problem if you are carrying lotz of luggages. 2) All staff don't understand English much, which make little difficult to communicate with them.
Very good budget hotel”
With very friendly and helpful staff, it was a delight to stay at the Lamai Guesthouse. Compared to surrounding hotels, this is a very economical place to stay. Noting that, I expected the accommodation to be of low queslity, but was very pleasantly surprised. My room was quiet and comfortable, and I was impressed by the rather extensive supplies in and on the mini bar.
Good Times at Lamai”
I had an enjoyable stay at Lamai Guesthouse. When staying here it's important to note that there are several Lamai places in the area so make sure to note the correct one. The place seemed fairly empty when I was there and it was nice and quiet, and staff were kind and pleasant. The room itself is a tremendous value for the price and the bed and little outdoor balcony is a nice touch too.
Quality Hotel, Cheap Price”
Great value if you are looking to stay at location away from touristy Patong Beach area. Hotel staff is very friendly and will go out of their way to assist you. Highly recommend renting motorbike to explore the other beach areas--Karon & Kata Beaches--which are not drunk with tourists. Cost of motorbike is very inexpensive, starting at 150B/day. Would stay at this guesthouse again.
Awesome Hotel! ”
This hotel was a wonderful place for me to enjoy a good life in patong, it was closer to the beach and the price was really good for a big room. All the entertainment areas were absolutely close by, and the rooms were mint clean and the stuffs were helpful whenever I needed information. It was not far away from the vibrant scenes, because it was only a walking distance from the beach. I had so much fun staying here and i would come back soon. The hotel itself was brand new and absolutely clean inside the rooms.
You will be satisfied with the hotel if you stay at Lamai Guesthouse. It is a good option for the money. It is not a flashy place and is not expensive, but it is a good value for the money. The place is a little far away from the beach and main areas, but you can walk there in about 15 minutes or take a taxi without much of a problem.
Perfect hotel for youngster(maybe)”
Me and my hubby had stay 6days at this hotel. *** It's acceptable for us as there is a PC and printer( no extra charges) in every room with free wifi. As I need not bring laptop for my business communication. room: very clean with all furnitures as expected like our own bedroom. Venue: It's abt 15mins walk to the Patong beach. We rented a bike for 200bht per day.(nt including petrol) Service: gd but their English needs to improve(lucky I know hw to speak Thai) Value: cheap n value for long stay. Overall it is acceptable! Will recommend more for youngster who needs PC more often at a cheap rate hotel. 8/10 PS: pls dun expect too much as this is nt 5 stars hotel.

Its he best place for those who are looking for hotels just for a stay not for recreation. Very economical , with all amenities like AC, Hotwater, good cots, refregirator- fully loaded..!It should be the best deal in a place like phuket.I did a lot of research with the hotels in phuket n this is the best n economical.
Fun, Enjoy, and Amazing”
I love this guesthouse :) The price very cheap, competitive, and the room condition is no bad/poor. I think if I come back to Phuket, I would stay in Lamai agai. I feels comfort when I stay at room Nice staff
the hotel was near patong beach wich is the most popular road in phucket as restaurant,night club,night life,shopping center ecc.. about the hotel i can say only good things:friendly staff, very good size rooms,free internet.laundry just about 10 seconds by the hotel;wich is great.one more thing to say is about the lady in the morning at the reception,i can not remember the name.she was the best,she make us feel at home.at the end of our vacation she even hug us.for sure we will back next year and thats one of the reason,to see her again:-).
Good very good”
Hotel situated in good place, but far from beach and big shops. For 50 baht - possible on moto taxi move to Patong center or beach. Room in hotel very cleaner. Stuff very friendly. Very cheap hotel in hot season. Room have balcony. I think - if I shall be visit Patong in a future- I can be stay in this hotel once more time
Value for money”
We made last minutes booking to Lamai guesthouse. Arrived there midnight, the reception was very kind. furthermore,she supported us to find island tour for next morning with great price. The bathroom is clean and the bedsheet is ok. Only since we stayed at 5th floor and there's no elevator, it was a bit tired. but we just stayed at night and whole day we were going around phuket, so it's not big deal for us. As overall, value for money!!
A very good hotel with a reasonable price”
The room is very spacious, nice, clean and tidy. They make-up the room everyday. The hotel provide a desktop and a scanner in the room for guest to use. Would recommend this hotel for those who like a quite place to stay compared to patong beach area which is a bit crowded and noisy. The front desk staff is very helpfull & friendly. The hotel is just a few step from the Simon Cabaret.
Overall i am happy with our stay. We were happy to have more budget for other activitives in the island since we already save some from the cheap lodging here. This place is about 20mins walking distance to Patong town, i find that riding a bike is a bit challenging especially we are foreign to this place, walking is quiet interesting as u can see the environment in a slower pace. I will definitely recommend my friends to stay in Lamai Guest house!! It's definitely a very good place to stay.
A welcoming place, good location and great value for the low cost!”
I like to have a quiet place to retreat to and this was perfect! It is still close to patong beach, but tucked away from all of the noise. The room was cleaned daily, and they leave bottles of water and fresh towels. The deluxe room is huge and has a full bath tub! It was also really great to have a desk, as I was working remotely online while traveling. All of the staff are really friendly and patient with the language barrier. I ended up staying here longer than I planned because it was so comfortable and affordable!
