excellent stay for 5 nights as a group, including couples. As with most reviews here, i can stress that you get what you pay for. Its terrific value considering its location which is basically close to everything need in patong. No wasting money on taxis or tuk tuks...walking distance to major shopping mall, night markets, bangla road and the beach....

Clearly any of the 92,000 people who read my reviews know that l'm a straight shooter and here I'll be no different. However, this hotel must be reviewed in perspective and rated accordingly.

Friendly staff. Good for budget...
