Guest friendly hotels Phuket general information: Every year I visit many guest friendly hotels in Phuket, speak to staff/owners and take new pics. See my post top 10 guest friendly hotels Patong.
The centre of Phuket nightlife is Patong and it’s (un)famous Bangla road where the most beer bars and the biggest clubs are concentrated. Many hotels in Phuket and Patong area do not allow unregistered guests and bar girls to visit you in your hotel room or charge joiner fee. Most of the best guest friendly hotels Phuket are located in Patong and Bangla road area.

Top guest friendly hotels Phuket – Karon Beach
Bamboo House Phuket Hotel *** $41+
Excellent guest friendly hotel right in the middle of everything. Close to restaurants, bars and nightlife but set back from the road and a quiet place to relax. The beach is a 3 minute walk at the end of the street. The pool is small but nice. The rooms are big with bamboo decorations, comfy beds, safe and good clean bathrooms with hot shower. Free and fast wi-fi, even a built in apple computer that you can link to the TV very easily to surf the web. Friendly reception staff.
Karon Sunshine Guesthouse&Bar ** $16+
The Karon Sunshine Guesthouse is a nice family run establishment and the best budget option. The location is excellent, in a side street off the main road and very central. The hotel is located very close to bars, restaurants, shops and the beach is about five minutes walk away. The rooms are basic but large and clean with king size beds, flatscreen TV, aircon and fast and free wi-fi. Two free bottles of water daily. Free shower gel and shampoo. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
