A Friends House

I found this hotel, albeit not luxurious, the ideal place where to spend my holidays in thailand. First of all it was amazingly cheap for the very decent standard offered. And no complaints about the rooms, which are very nice and clean, and the excellent restaurant with an amazing variety of dishes. But the main feature is the informal management of the hotel which makes everyone feel like if they were in their own house. I meet new friends among the residents there. No artificial smiling and bowing with folded heads, but rather all assitence needed whenever needed and all efforts made to make you feel at ease with all comforts possible. This is how it should be in any hotel, and from now onward I will look for places like this rather than the "standard" like type of accommodation - 3*, 4* or 5* stars that may be, where every smile comes at a price ... from your own pocket. Very well Anchalee Inn. Every time I will come to Patong I will stay there again. Thanks

Very interesting hotel

Interesting hotel which while cheap and simple, offers very good rooms with top cleanliness and a different approach to hotel business. In fact the staff there seems to be more local simple girls than sofisticated smiling professionals. The manager lives there too with his family. Thus the hotel, while well managed and with all the crism of a proper hotel, seems more like an holiday home away from home. I did apreciate also very much the healthy and clean food at their nice restaurant.

Considering all the hotels I have visited in the past, this is the best from the point of view of quality proportioned to price. The structure is somewhat old but this only add to the particular taste and mood, and it is efficently managed with a friendly touch. Top scores.
