Orchid Resortel is a great little inexpensive 3-star hotel in a prime location only 3 mins walking distance from Bangla road and 7 mins from the Patong beach. Hotel amenities include a small rooftop pool and bar overlooking soi sansabai, a sauna and a 24 hrs restaurant and bar on ground level facing the street. Very well run joint from what I noticed, all areas are kept spotlessly clean, service is good and staff are very friendly.
The standard room are not decorated up to latest fashion, but clean and equipped with all the essentials. You can expect to find: Large beds (a little hard, but ok), flat-screen TV with a wide variety of channels and languages, apartment size fridge with plenty of space for your drinks, quiet but efficient AC unit, small electronic safe to store your valuables. Bed linens and towels did show a bit of wear and tear but they were cleaned and changed daily. Room at the back have no noise from the street, however the doors were thin and soundproofing not the best, you could easily hear other guests passing by and talking in the hallways, light sleepers should definitely bring some ear plugs. Overall, considering the price, amenities and location, I think it’s excellent value for the price of admission and recommended for solo traveler or a groups of friends. Awarded again the Certificate of Excellence for 2018. Have a look above for the pictures of the room and hotel amenities.
