Picking the right hotel in Patong (Phuket)

When on holiday in Thailand your hotel will function as the headquarters of your holiday. You will go back here if you need to freshen up, get some much needed rest and most important; to have a great time with your beautiful Thai lady. Choosing the right hotel enables you to get the most out of your holiday and because there are so many, this can be a really tough choice.
Don't worry about that for now, I am here to help you!

I've seen a lot of hotels throughout the years and by now I have a pretty clear image of which hotels are the best for you. I can tell from experience that even if a hotel looks fancy on the pictures, it can be a shithole and blow your vacation. The hotels in my list are always up to date and I can promise you that they will be exactly what you're looking for.  I always book my hotels through agoda since they offer the best price and excellent customer service. I added a link to the hotels, follow it to check out the price on the date you want to go! Important: Your hotel needs to be guest friendly, which means that the hotel won't charge you extra money once you bring a girl back to your room. All hotels in my list are guest friendly. 

Amata Patong 23$+ 

Asia Addicts personal favorite 
The Amata is simply amazing. The hotel, which has it own driveway, offers really clean rooms, super friendly staff and the location can't be better. You can walk everything, no need for any transportation. Above all that the hotel has two swimming pools; one at ground level and another infinity pool at the rooftop. The rooftop pool has views over phuket and the patong bay. The food is great and the prices are very fair, I honestly don't know why the rooms are so cheap compared to similair hotels. Consider taking a ''deluxe pool view room'' (30$) so you can still enjoy all the action from your balcony, it's totally worth it.

If you're not into big resort style hotels but like like smaller boutique style hotels, the Ocean and Ole can be the place for you. The hotel has a nice coffeeshop downstairs and features a small but quiet rooftop pool. Everything is clean and the staff knows what Asian hospitality is!

The name is as long as the list of luxury facilities this place offers. If you want to get the absolute most out of your holiday and don't care about paying a bit more for a luxury hotel then consider staying here. The pool area feels like a tropical wonderland. Sipping a cocktail here after a crazy night on Bangla road will make your hangover go away faster then you can imagine. This place is high-end and still relatively affordable. The Thai-style hotel will not dissapoint you and your girl will be impressed!

Expat Hotel 33$+

If you value social facilities this hotel might be your pick. The swimming pool is huge and has enough sunbeds, the restaurant serves great food all day long and there is even a massage parlour and pool tables. The rooms are a bit dated so if you prefer the modern style, go to the Amata. Are you a solo traveler who likes to talk with fellow asia addicts? Go here. The price goes up a lot when it's nearly full so make sure to book in advance or if the price is too high look for another hotel.
