|“Great rooms. Quiet location in Patong.”
I normally stay in 5 star resorts with the family, but as it was a business trip I choose somewhere convenient for meetings. So I choose the top choice on tripadvisor.
ROOMS. The rooms are huge, with a living room, kitchen and balcony. It's actually an apartment as alot of reviewers have said. New and modern design with iphone docks and coffee machines (like nespresso but different brand). Free Wifi throughout that works! Everything you need in the room. Has safe as well for your valuables. But most of all the rooms were tastefully designed whilst functional and not at all pretentious or over the top. Everything fits together well. Wonder if they got a feng shui master to design the layout. It felt "right" - very good natural lighting inside the two rooms I stayed (yes I got upgraded to an even larger room on the second night) so you feel very comfortable throughout your stay inside the room.
LOCATION. Next to a Wine Connection so convenient if you like a glass/bottle of wine. Nice airy bright rooms which I really like, not dark and dingy. About 15min walk to Jungcelon, which isn't so bad. Massages along the road, at about 250 baht for oil/thai, which is great value. Quiet location on the end of Patong but not too far away. Taxi/tour operator next door.
Only tried the breakfast at the restaurant which is situated on the ground floor. The breakfast is very good value at about 150 baht for 2 eggs plus the sides.
Only thing they didn't provide is a toothbrush and shaver, so bring your own or get from supermart which is close by.
Couples/individuals looking for good value, modern, chic apartment style accommodation.
WILL I GO BACK?
Yes for sure, which is unusual as I usually like to try different hotels.
