“Club Bamboo Hotel & ? Needs Urgent TLC”
Reviewed 11 December 2011

I have been staying at the Club Bamboo Hotel and ? My first night in my hotel room while in the shower the whole power to the room went off, pitch dark stood in the shower with soap all over. Slipped and fell trying to get out in dark.
Second night shower pipework bursts....
Moved finally to another room only to find large door window latch open to the world, fixed to close, with large gap that allows biting bugs in.
Then ceiling hatch that (I tell no lie have pictures to share) allows a sticky mice catch substance through in large amounts.
Reception staff that smile however, sadly knowing very little English language what so ever, proving embarrising and confusing to say the least, and very difficult to communicate one's needs.
I would like to say you get what you pay for, but there are cheaper and better in Phuket. Looks like a nice place once, just lacks TLC and proper investment.

Room Tip: Look around before you book. There are better and cheaper hotels around that offer much better accom...

I actually stayed here over two years ago (this site will not let me go beyond a year) so bare in mind things might have changed over the ensuing years.

It was an attractive, quite modern facility back then though (nice lobby, pool, bar), and my standard room was nicely decked out. Everything worked too (with the exception a pipe in the bathroom which dripped a little a created a slightly dank odor).

The area is a little bit of a backwater. (It is on the lower side of a hill but there didn't seem to be any grand views or anything). Not walking distance either so you will need to take either a taxi (if you can swallow with the inflated prices the taxi mafia charge here), hire your own hire bike, or take the free shuttle service Club Bamboo offers four or so times a day.

The price was good though: about 15 percent less than places closer to the main action. Staff were quite friendly (if a little bit amateur) so no complaints there either.

When everything runs smoothly, that is pretty much my bench-march for quality.

Room Tip: Everyone staying there seemed to have hired a moto. There is a hire place close by too, so probably...

We went here after a disappointing experience in the other hotel.
The reception lady was very delightful. The location was perfect, not to near to bangla rd but not so far either. Walking distance to most area if u enjoy walking. If not, motorbikes are available for rent.
Breakfast was alright. The swimming pool was small. We didn't spend time at the pool.
The toilet is slippery. I brought my 2 year old kid, she nearly slipped.
But overall, a great place to stay for all kind of travelers.

We had booked a Bunglow suites in this Hotel after reading feedbacks and our experience with this hotl had been very good. Though the Hotel is little away from the Patong beach, it had offered a tranquil and peaceful stay. My wife liked the small pool inside the hotel and having dinner near the pool was a very romantic experience for her. The view from balcony was breathtaking. The hotel had also offered a surprise free massage.

The staff was very friendly and services were very good. The only negative I observed was that on the first day when i checked in, the receptionist wore a dilapidated uniform and this had given me a bad impression. Anyhow, I can say that this was a value for money stay.

We booked our room for two on lastminute.com so we were a bit unsure what to expect at such a cheap price (about $90 for two nights AUD). We were very happy from the minute we arrived.
The hotel is presented nicely. On arrival we were served a refreshment while they sorted our details. They carried our bags to our room for us. We then ordered room service as we were so tired and it was actually the best Pad Thai we had in our whole stay in Thailand.
The room was just what we needed and more. It was also right by the pool and breakfast.

Small downsides:
It looked like the shampoo and shower gel had not been replaced.
The breakfast was farely basic. (However you can buy really good cooked breakfasts).
Was about a 15 minute walk to Patong, but that is actually not that bad walking downhill.

Honestly I would definitely stay here again and I reccomend it. :)
