This was my second time at Smile Residence. This time I stayed in a standard room. I'm not sure what the difference is from the room I had before as they were the same price. The room I stayed in this time for one night is quite nice, but not as nice as the other room. That being said, the room was a great value for the money. It's very close to Chalong Pier which you can see from the higher floors of the hotel. You can also see the Big Buddha to the west. The rooms are quite large and the beds are firm but comfortable. The only problem was that there was not a chair in the room. There are two patio chairs on the balcony, but no chair in the room. This is a very minor problem considering the price of the room. After 5 days on a livaboard I returned to Smile and I have one of the nicer rooms again. Really great room for the money. The room has a lot of wall outlets and a nice balcony with a sink. The shower pressure is good. The pool is super nice. The staff is very helpful and friendly. There's a laundry right next to the hotel. The hotel also offers shuttle service to and from the airport as well as car and scooter rental at the property. The reception is open 24 hours. I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel.

Great place
The room was huge and the view was nice. The bed was very firm, but that is common in this area. I could see the Big Buddha from my room. The room had a nice balcony area that overlooked the hotel pool. The pool was great. The only complaints I might have is that the lighting in the room was very stark. All lighting was overhead and there were no lamps. There were a lot of ants in the room, esp the bathroom.

Clean and comfortable place, very helpful staff
During my 6 weeks in Thailand / Phuket area I stayed three times in this hotel. Chalong area is not a place you spend your holiday (no beach, for example), but connections to other parts of Phuket island are good. Smile hotel was good, clean and pretty comfortable and price / quality is really good! Staff is super nice, friendly and helpful - I recommend!
