It deserves high scores

Patong is becoming more a city than the village it used to be. Everywhere new elegant buildings, new roads and a lot of tourists from the east. It used to be mainly a resort used by Europeans, Autstralians and a few Americans, but now it bustles with all sort of nationalities. Still charming, sunny and attractive but somewhat different. The hotel though remained pretty much the same. I was here many years ago - can't recall it exactly: perhaps 6 or so - and I did like it now much like I did it first time. The owner, the same good man just a little bit fatter and wiser, kept it up to the times by upgrading whatever needed, improving it and keeping it clean and fresh. Nevertheless the mood is the same of a dear old style Inn with all comforts and friendly, easy mood. Some of the employees are the same and others are new, but nevertheless all above average in courtesy and helpfulness. English speaking is also above average for the area. I did choose Anchalee Inn first time because this was what I wanted, and i was never disappointed. The rooms are nice and comfortable and the cleanliness is top. The services offered within the price are many and unusual for this sort of budget hotels; just think of a Sauna and a Gymnasium: usually only some of the higher prices hotels have it, and it is not for free. The food in the restaurant is absolutely great. The location also has changed in the sense that it has became more central due to the city expansion, but still it remains in a reasonably quiet area with easy access to everything. The beach is a few step, perhaps 300 mt, in front of the hotel, straight ahead. We stayed in this small hotel for three weeks last month and I can't find any complaints about it. The weather also helped since the sun was always shiny and the air was somewhat fresh - they told me it was unusually cold for them - making the evenings extremely pelasant after a day of full-beach-immersion. The center of town, Bangla road, remained pretty much the same too, with several new buildings replacing the old ones, but the mess is pretty much equal, or greater. We used it only a few times, though, choosing instead often to spend quiet relaxing nights in smaller venues and bars around the hotel itself. As far as food, countless restaurants are in the area, but we found them mostly not up to the mark. The best ones we found are the hotel's own restaurant and the nearby Italian restaurant "Dolce Vita", just 50 meters ahead, behind the corner of a small alley. I hope this review of mine could be helpful for all to understand the location and the place and to make no mistakes if you need to choose where to stay and to go. For as much as we are concern, this was the best choice, a bargain offer and if we will come in town again - whenever it may be - we will have no hesitation to stay at Anchalee Inn again.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Many restaurants in the area, but i had bad experiences in mainly all of them. The best one, after the hotel's own, it is perhaps to my advise the Dolce Vita, a few meters straight up the road, behind a small alley's corner. Or second to that the "Gusto" in opposite direction, around 300 mts south.

Decent value in Patong

Second stay here. Small hotel with good restaurant. Close to beach. Ok for solo or couple, not a family place. No extras of any kind. Good place if you want basic and cheap.

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.

Acceptable budget hotel

We upgraded to the deluxe room, which was decent. It was fairly large and clean, with the usual amenities (fridge, safe, AC). It's about what you'd expect from a budget hotel, if not better. The view was towards the beach, but you could only see trees and buildings. There's a small pool, but we didn't check it out. One annoyance was that the wifi didn't work in the room. You might have to go downstairs and sweat it out in the lobby (no AC). Another annoyance is that the lift was broken. The location in Patong is decent, though not great. It's a fairly easy walk to the beach (5 minutes). A few restaurants and bars are nearby, as well as a 7-11 and a many art galleries. You could walk to Bangla, but it's a challenging walk in hot weather. With a motorbike, this location becomes much better. Overall, I'd say this hotel is worth considering when travelling on a budget.

The nearby Shakers restaurant was decent. Also, drinks are very cheap at 7-11. You can also buy a big bag of ice for only 7 Baht ($0.2), which will stay hard in the fridge for at least a day or so.
