|“Stylish and chic”
We came a bit earlier than the set check-in time, and were told to wait till the check in opened at a certain time (can't remember exactly the time, but I think it was two o'clock). We left our luggage at the hotel and went for some massage just down the road after a long flight. When we came back at the given time, our room still wasn't ready. We were offered to wait in the hotel bar, but nothing was given us complimentary. A coupon or a free drink would have been proper for the inconvenience.
Once at the room the pleasure started. A nice, cool and clean room with a huge balcony. Only drawback was that everyone could access our "private&quo t; balcony from the hallway, even though that never happened. Anyways; make sure to lock the balcony door after use.
The bathroom is covered with mirrors on the walls, and is light and spotless clean.
The hotel pool is small, located on the roof top. We used it once, and we were the only ones.
Air condition, sound speaker system and safe in the room worked smoothly. We did have some problems with one of the electricity outlets which caused the lights in our room to turn off, but the staff tried as well as they could to fix it. In the end we just didn't use that certain outlet.
The hotel is located a couple of blocks from the beach (and as none of the hotels in Patong is situated right on the beach, that makes this location very good), which is just a couple of minutes walk.
Bangla Road and Jungceylon are just a 10-15 minutes walk away.
Check out went quickly, but they tried to charge us quite a amount of money for a broken glass we were unfortunates to brake. We gave them our opinion on that matter, and they ended not charging us at all.
Booking some of the cabarets in town actually is a economical choice, but make sure to check some prices on the different activities they offer their guests to book as I don't think they are cheaper on everything.
When we booked this apartment we got a good price. Considering the price level the hotel gets a full score from us, but don't pay too much - you can probably find other hotels which give you more for the price if this hotel has started to charge more for their accommodations. Just check around!
Anyways; this is a excellent choice when staying in Patong, and you won't be disappointed!
