Lamai hotel is conveniently located in central Patong, it is on the main street(Rat U Thit Rd.) 1 street back, and a short walk from Patong beach. It is very central as it is close to Jungceylon shopping plaza, the beach, street vendors, conveneince stores etc. and the nightlife of the Bangla Rd district. Scooter hire is available, as are a host of other services, rooms are clean and surprisingly good for a hotel in this location and price bracket. Staff are helpful, and overall impression of this hotel is that it is great value for money and my next trip to Phuket will be the fourth time I have stayed there. Highly recommend.
This was around my 6th stay at this hotel, went during the so called wet season this time and as such the room price was very reasonable considering the location and breakfast was included. Lamai hotel would be a great first time stay for visitors to Patong as it is within easy walking distance of most of the main attractions. Being on a main road it is also easy to get a taxi/tuk tuk and there is a host of shops, places to eat, convenience stores, money changers and other services within a very short walk. The only main drawback is that you are in the heart of Patong with its busy road and nightlife etc., if you are looking for a quiet holiday look elsewhere, Karon, Kata, Kamala etc. which are still close to Patong but are much quieter. My tip is to hire a scooter and do your own sightseeing during the day. This will save you the hire price of taxis many times over and give you the freedom to further explore the island at your leisure. Markets and street side sellers are also a great place to buy good cheap food if you are on a budget, and convenience stores sell alcohol at a fraction of the price you will pay at most restaurants and night spots. With the military government recently taking control of Thailand, much of the corruption and beaches have been cleaned up of illegal activity which is a welcome and long overdue change. Even the local police have diverted from their main occupation of fleecing tourists for minor things, and are now actually doing their job.
Of my five weeks traveling thru japan,vietnam and thailand, the lamai hotel is by far the best hotel and most memorable of my visit. wonderful location that is 4min walk to Patong beach and 4 min walk to Bangla. staff was friendly and helpful. hotel also rents mopeds, has a cafe, and has an associated spa so you can charge everything to your room. The room itself had a large screen tv, refrigerator,small balcony, and a personal computer (free use). Room spacious, clean and bright. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and I made many new friends at the hotel. When i return to patong, i will definitely stay at the lamai hotel once again.
I stayed from March 19 - April 18, 2017, i can honestly say i really enjoyed my time spent at the Lamai Hotel, the staff were friendly, easy going, rooms cleaned daily, large spacious room with lots of light, TV, Fridge, excellent value & location, 10 min walk to Patong beach, Jungceylon Mall, 15 min walk to Bangla road, my only gripe was the wifi was an issue during my last few days, beforehand no problem, I look forward to retuning shortly for a longer visit, The Lamai will be my home base in Phuket,
Great location and good service and cheap price”
first time to go to phuket and first time to stay in lamai hotel, it is beyond our expectation that the hotel offer tv, network, air-condition, pc even printer for free with such a low price per night. and it is very convenient to go to everywhere in patong, recommend lamai hotel to my friends and they also book this hotel.
Great hotel with cheap price”
This hotel appearance from the front, is not really convincing. But when you get into the room, you will be amazed. There is a computer with internet, speaker, webcam. There is also 42 inch television. It's something you'll never find in such a cheap hotel like Lamai Hotel in low season. I only booked for one night because I want to look with my eyes what the rooms condition. I got satisfied and then extend my stay for another 2 nights. Really worth it. Bangla road, Patong otap, and Jungceylon mall are within walking distance.
Lovely hotel and service”
i really suggest any one to go phuket and one of the best hotel due to the price and services specially computer and internet. the place of lamai hotel is in centre of patong beach area and its near to the main shopping centre of patang beach area and also its near to ban glow road.
Single Man's Digs”
When staying in Phuket with children or family, I choose other hotels with a wider range of amenties, such as a pool. The Lamai hotel is perfect however when travelling alone. In fact almost all of the clientele seemed to be single men with double rooms. This is because the Lamai hotel is very generous with its stay over guest policy and doesn't charge extra on these occasions unlike some other hotels nearby. The Lamai is not super luxurious but has everything a single traveller might need, a bar, plenty of freshly cooked food, motor scooter hire, 24 hour reception and friendly flexible staff. The rooms have big screen TV, cable channels and a computer with free internet. The hote is situated in a convenient location with the beach, shopping, massage, restaurants and nightlife a short walk away.
Lovely hotel and service”
I really in love with Phuket and really suggest to every one to go there and about a Lamai Hotel the place is really amazing and its in the centre of Patong area and the services specially computer and internet and the rooms and the staff there are really amazing.
Looks like the management have read my previous review”
Staying at the Lamai again (the price booked through Agoda is far and away the best). This time there is no defunct printer taking up room on the desk and the WiFi speed is excellent. Also, the downstairs staff do not sit around the reception computer nearly as much. All told, I can fully recommend the Lamai. It has been mentioned that there is no pool, which is true, but why go all the way to Thailand to sit around at the hotel when the beach - and its a nice beach too I might add - is only a 5 minute stroll away. There is a large sun deck area on the top level with tables, chairs etc if you do want to spend time there..
It is worth the money!”
Me and my wife stayed in Lamai Hotel for 4 nights, from 9 Oct to 12 Oct 2010,which was good experience. Pros: Great location,, 5 minutes local restaurants, Jungceylon shopping center, bar street and beach. At night, it was not noisy at all, maybe because we choose high floor. Hot shower, king-size bed and 42 inch LCD TV with English channels do help us to recharge the battery after an tight-planned day tour. A staff named Jack is really nice to us. Cons: The lights are very dark in room; bed sheets are not as clean as I expected; disappointing receptionist service, especially her English is very poor; the price of in-hotel restaurant and massage are higher other local restaurants and massages. So we always go to Cairo Restaurant (5 minutes from Lamai Hotel) for dinner and Jungceylon (7 minutes from Lamai Hotel) basement for massage, which are much better. The lift is terrible, sometimes it just does not work at all. Overall comment: it is a budget hotel for short period of stay. Most importantly, the location is so convenient, then we would like to spend more time out of the hotel rather than staying in.
Great value for money”
this is my second stay at lamai hotel patong, it is ideally located on one of the main thoroughfares and is a short walk to jungceylon shopping centre and the nightlife of the bangla road district and beach. rooms are of a good standard and are generally well insulated from the street noise. staff are helpful and the hotel offers good value meals, bar scooter hire, massage services and more. hotel seemed to be free of the usual drunken bogans that frequent some of the lesser hotels and overall i have been happy with my stay here on both occasions. the only small issue concerns the sidewalk bar where on 2 seperate occasions i witnessed local motorcycle taxi riders, who seem to call the front bar their home base, drinking whisky and smoking marijuana while on duty, this behaviour is unacceptable and when brought to the attention of counter staff she pretended not to understand.
Very Awesome for the price.”
i had a blast at the lamai hotel. at first i was a little offset about it being so cheep because of the whole you get what you pay for thing. when i got there i was very impressed. the room was clean the water was hot and they put up with me and my friends. we actually decided to hang out in the front with some of the staff and that was one of the best days we had their. i will go back.
lamai hotel was recommended by a good friend from singapore who used to stay in the hotel for sometime. the location and the service were the things he highlighted to me which are very promising. the staffs are very kind and gentle in whatever things you need and ask from them. the hotel is highly recommendable. thanks to all the management.
Fantastic, outstanding staff!!! loved it ”
I Stayed at the Lamai Hotel for a week, the place is brilliant, great location, staff are wonderful, a very joyous experience, i'll stay there again for sure, highly recommend The Lamai for its quality and value for price..

My stay is great. I have been Staying in Lamai twice this year.I stayed in Lamai last January 2011 and last June 2011. Good hotel that there is a set of computer in room.Just around the corners are shopping area.During the day,island hopping are the best thing to do and at night dont miss to see Bangla area.
Good Value if you book online”
Tourism is low right now in Patong and Bangkok, and Thailand in general, which is silly. Their is very little unrest in Bangkok, and it seems most of Thailand could care less about red/yellow shirt protests. The economy is based on tourism, and as such you can get some really bargain deals at the moment. With a little negotiation, you can live well cheap. Beware though, just because it's slow, does not mean the Thai's are giving things away, without a bit of negotiating you won't get a deal. They can tell when you have been here a day vs. a month... From Phuket airport you can get a minibus to Patong for a 150 baht per person, if you get a taxi - they will work you, as it is about an hour drive.
Pretty damn good!”
We stayed here for about 5 nights and was worth every penny! the area of Patong wore off after a few days but the hotel was excellent! we had a massive room - two single beds 42" Tv dvd player, computer with wireless internet buig bathroom, balcony! and was cheap! it was just out of the hustle and bustle but less than 5mins walk away from everything! be careful of the electrics everything was charged - although we fiddled with the cables to get the PC to work but even the tv ariel carried a current. but for the money you couldnt argue at all!
Very pleasant stay, no surprises,”
This is a great place to stay very convenient location to the beach, shopping and nightlife. It is an excellent value for the money. Very helpful staff. I will be back and I highly recommend the Lamai Hotel.
