First some congratulations to the very kind staff, always smiling and helpful. The Hotel is situated on the top of a steep hill of Patong, a little off centered from the town, but it is a calm area and with a gorgeous view on sunsets, and new year eve's astonishing fireworks. Free shuttle to town at noon, 2, 4, 6 and 8 pm. One at 10 am would be ideal.
For a hotel in that price range, few things were disappointing or below standards:
* breakfast really did not show much variety and was always the same: egg, bacon, sausages, pancakes, with white square bread, small industrials croissants, two types of yogourt, fruits and salad. One type of sugary "juice". Really below standard for such an hotel in Thailand.
* Bedroom: advertised with two bedrooms with giant beds. One is indeed as such, the other is more like a large closet, with nothing more than a medium size bed and a cupboard, no windows and 20 cm on each side of the bed. Very difficult to move around, and no plugs at the head of the bed.
* Kitchen: microwave did not work; very little kitchenware, not enough cuttlery, plates etc...
There is a very affordable restaurant, "number 6" just next door which make it easy to have lunch or diner and one does not want to go to town.
* Swimming pool has three depths. The water quality was however way below standard, it was not clear (would barely see bottom in the deep area, and really had a bad taste. Probably due to the daily training of diver in wet suit and lack of water change.
