Located on a pretty busy street we found that it was close enough to any shop, atm, restaurant, bar, massage, supermarket it had it all pretty much and we became favorites with the Taxi guys who gave us a lift to the center for 200baht. We walked to Patong Beach a few times but it was very hot to do so in the day and seemed further away than it looked from our balcony.
Very Relaxing if you want it to be and also close enough to have a wild night or even a mild night at the close by pubs, bars and restaurants. We stayed for 6 nights and managed to find a different restaurant for lunch and dinner every night and alot cheaper and much the same as Patong Beach Center, the same same but different really comes into play when choosing a restaurant.
I love Thailand and this is not my first stay in Phuket so this time we just sat back and let Phuket be Phuket which is a great approach because everything is there if you want it, cheap, fancy, adventurous, lazy, loud or quiet, relaxing or exhausting, you can do what ever your mood asks of you.
After a month of travelling Europe during winter with my Girlfriend we found 'Chic' the perfect hotel for our mood, we spent 6 nights here and just kicked back on the free wifi and laxed by the pool. The hotel is not huge so you pretty much get the pool to yourself if you time it right, if not sharing with a guest or two. At times I thought it would be nice if they could bring me a cocktail or two but, then I would never leave.
