Newish hotel close to Bangla and beach but far enough away . But wanted to charge $1000 baht if you invite someone back to your room .

Nice hotel. Very near to Shopping mall and beach

Posted May 23, 2014
Pros: Hotel room is clean and bed is very comfortable ! Keep up the good work! Breakfast was great too!
Cons: Swimming pool at the 4th floor should be cleaned. As the pool water is not clear, algae can be seen.
Location: The beach is about 7-10mins walk. Shopping mall is huge and nearby approx 4mins. Night pubs and clubs are around the area. Good for party goers.
This hotel is highly recommended. The room is clean and breakfast is really good. They change the breakfast menu daily. Different choices of food. The beach is about 7-10mins walk. Shopping mall is huge and nearby approx 4mins. Night pubs and clubs are around the area. Good for party goers. Local street foods can be found behind the hotel around 6mins walk.

8 nights enjoyed

Posted Apr 25, 2014
Location: Great location in the heart of Patong, Jungceylon Shopping Mall right behind and locals market around the corner. Beach 5 minute walk
Good hotel, large rooms, good breakfasts included, free wifi in room safe etc. good facilities and a great location. Staff couldn't have been friendlier. My room called a penthouse view( not really) but had a bath and a separate shower, excellent. Tip: As usual room has a laundry bag and hotel prices, same hotel has a sign out the front for Lantern Laundry open to public for 45 Bht per KG, and only 70 Bht per Kg washed and ironed.

Beautiful Resort

Posted Mar 17, 2014
Pros: The helpful staff, and this includes the security guard who clicked his heels to every lady entering or exiting the building. Also, the cocktails!
Cons: Maybe better noise insulation between rooms.
Location: Central to everything including Bangla Rd, shopping, great food.
We had a wonderful stay. The staff were falling over to help us. We had an issue with neighbouring guests singing and dancing and being obnoxious one night, until 5am, but the staff were quick to change us to a different floor. What a relief!!!! Special thanks to all staff from cleaners to management, who made our holiday so special.

Close to bangla rd & jungceylon

Posted Feb 19, 2014
Nice clean hotel with friendly staff. Only downside was there was construction going on right outside my room so I couldn't sleep. Upon letting reception staff know they changed my room to the quieter side & even upgraded it to a huge ensuite which is really nice!

Rude reception staff, New Guest Fee Policy

Posted Feb 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
Very disappointed during my stay as the hotel charged me 1,000 BAHT for my guest that stayed overnight because this guest didn't originally check-in with me even though I had booked this room for 2 adults. They mentioned that this is a new policy started this year and even though I booked my room in advance and paid for my stay in full last year prior to this policy starting, they didn't care and night staff was very rude. Not to mention that there wasn't any email sent to inform me that the terms and conditions of the stay had changed. Very bad management.

Dear Khun "Emre", We appreciate your comments as to improve our management, however, this was a classic case of misunderstanding. We, as a team would like to point out that although you have booked rooms for 2 adults: both you and the joiner would have to be present upon check-in. These terms and conditions are valid for the reason of our business terms. Your comments are sent to the Management Board! We hope you would understand and we are always happy to welcome you back! Warmest Regards, OTA Executive

Lovely Rooms...

Posted Jan 13, 2014 on Hotels.com
We stayed here for one night and our first impression when the taxi pulled in was omg, what a dump, However once we entered the hotel we were proved wrong, the service was very good, we were upgraded to the penthouse room which was very spacious and spotless! A pleasant surprise! The hotel is situated very near the nightlife and the area is very noisy, although it didn't disturb our sleep as we were on the upper floor! The restsurant needs a tidy up as we sat outside and there were discarded takeaway cartons on the floor and left over food!We would not stay here again as one night in Patong is enough!

Good hotel

Posted Jan 11, 2014
Nice hotel. Rooms are nice, it did say on our booking that we had a king bed but we were given 2 single beds which was disappointing but push them together and you get a huge bed! Bathroom was lovely with a big shower, be warned all the dials on the toilet look a little frightening when it's simply a toilet and unless you like water being shot at your private areas then don't fiddle with the buttons on the side!! The pool is lovely! Staff are all very friendly. Overall a great hotel in a really good location!

Excellent hotel location

Posted Dec 28, 2013
Pros: Nice decent size room with space. Clean and facilities adequate. Service staff was good and friendly throughout our 5 days stay.
Cons: Breakfast food variety could be better.
Location: Location was excellent as it is just beside the Jungceylon shopping centre. Patong beach is just around the corner and great choices of restaurants.
Overall my family and myself had a good and fun time there. Noises from neighbouring premises was sometimes abit loud but it was not that bad.
