This was a smaller property (maybe 12-15 rooms) so it was very quiet and simple (which is a great relief from the rest of Patong) A very short walk to the...

I didn’t plan on staying at this hotel, but when my booking disappeared at a nearby hotel which happened to be full, I wandered into the nearest hotel with availability to prevent moving far with my luggage. The Minotel is a small, basic and cheap hotel located not too far from the beach or from Bangla road, so its location...
