              Close to bangla road, Jungcylon, beach (300m maybe) and nice staff.”
              Close to everything with a swimingpool and you can only hear a little from bangla at night but not enough to wake you up. Also very good cleaners, in other hotels they have not cleaned my room if I put the sign on my door a bit late but in expat they always cleaned my room, very satisfied.

              Sorry not recommended”
              Poor run down property desperately in need of repair. I have been coming here since 1992 but have never seen it this bad. I stayed four nights in total and was given corner room 312 which I found to be little more than a converted broom cupboard in both size and quality and immediately asked to change rooms. Reception refused me a refund, blaming Agoda but eventually allowed me to change rooms. The receptionist was honest enough to admit to me that everybody complains about that room. On another incident, I asked the receptionist if she could kindly print off my boarding pass. A simple task I thought. I was advised only the boss knew how to use the printer and I had to wait until the boss returned that night. On a positive note, the restaurant and cleaning staff are proficient and cheerful.

              i have been on Phuket many times and has explore many different hotels during each trip. most of the time, the staff friendliness in these hotels would excel. Expat Hotel is abit contrast when it come to this. During breakfast or even during check-in and checkout, the responses from the staff is often cold. Though not totally non-communcative, but I felt an indifferent treatment. Overall, the location is spotless, the breakfast meal is great and the pool is nice. Housekeeping is good except they keep storing their housekeeping stuff by the stairs and doorway, which is odd. Hot water, water pressure and air conditioning is acceptable.

              If location and value for money are your criteria, then Expat is an excellent option in central Patong. You have to walk the length of Bangla Road (600 metres) to reach the ocean.

              This hotel has seen better times, and is definitely in need of renovation. But it is still at the very centre of Patong, and offers good value for money. It is not good for family trips, and most guests were single western males. Staff could do with more smiling...

              Do not believe any reviews that say this is a good hotel !! It was filthy mold throughout bathroom , sheets didn’t look as if they were changed for new guest everything is outdated in the room and doesn’t work properly such as showers and the aircon both myself and a mate who was to stay in the next room walked out and immediately booked another hotel ! This place really needs to be bulldozed and rebuilt before I would ever recommend anyone stay there !!! The staff were not welcoming and couldn’t show us to our rooms and now I know why , because they To are embarrassed of the state of the hotel . When we told them what we thought of the hotel and wouldn’t stay they just shrugged there shoulders . We ended up staying at the Patong resort which was cheaper than expat and a great hotel to stay at . More fool you if you do not take this review seriously !!!!

              Quaint bed and breakfast”
              I wouldn't classify this as an hotel, but more a bed and breakfast. The facilities are clean, pool sparkling, it's off the busy street, but us in desperate need of being updated. Doors have to be closed with a hard bang, which wakes you up if a guest is arriving late. Bathroom is fair, but with the shower and toilet sharing the same level- you walk water and foot prints through the bedroom. Other than that- we slept well, and enjoyed the variety of foods available.

              Our worst stay yet”
              I've used Agoda regularly for a few years. I've always been happy with our accommodation. This stay was a great disappointment. The hotel was rated 3-star which should assure certain standards. What we got was a tired, run-down and unkempt hotel. I'll just list some of the things we found unacceptable: - Around the pool looked as if it hadn't been swept in a very long time. - The white pool chairs were so dirty they were almost black. - Our room had a window which looked onto an open sewer. - The bathroom had only soap, no shampoo etc. - We were promised a complimentary drink on arrival. Of course there was none. There were more gripes but I don't want to go on at length. We talked to another two guests who had asked for their money back but they were refused. I'll continue to use Agoda but I'm afraid that charging over 2,000 baht a night is much too much for this hotel. My wife and I went to Patong to celebrate a ten-year anniversary which compounded the disappointment.

              Booked through Agoda because they offered late check out but then the hotel said we couldn't check out late because they were full the next day. Upon checkout they added three beers from the minibar onto the bill, so we had to go back up to the room and take photos of the minibar to prove they hadn't been consumed. The rooms themselves are small, the furniture old and damaged, and the walls paper thin. I would not stay here again, nor would I recommend it to anybody.

              I arrived for a dive holiday so the cost to me was the most important. I along with other customers got on very well with Restaurant staff, cleaners and receptionist.. they were all friendly and made my stay. I think as others have said do not expect 5 star but my room was always clean and bedding and towels were always changed. The pool was always kept clean. I was a little disappointed that the Steam room and hot tub were out of action whilst I was there. The food in the restaurant was always well cooked I ate in there every morning and most evenings. I was on the 3rd floor facing towards Bangla Rd you could here the bass from the room but not enough to give me any concern. The beds were a little hard but no different from other local hotels Would I go back yes I would everything was close.. Jungceylon and Bangle Rd less than a five minute walk.Baanzam night market only a 10 minute walk..
