Me and my two friends decided to get a room in this hotel. The room was small but it's clean. It has mini refrigerator full of drinks and other snacks though we didn't touch any of it since it's a bit pricey. Anyway, the location is good. It is near Bangla road and Patong beach. Friendly staff. Good for budget travelers. They also arranged for us airport transfers and city tour. What I liked most about The Expat Hotel is their Pad Thai, very delicious. Will definitely go back to this hotel.
