jmcdonald1 This spot is ok - nice ice-cream! You MUST book with breakfast (250bht per person is very steep otherwise). Very clean hotel, nice owners who are polite and helpful. Only downer is the busy road it is on and you have to walk on the road to get into KATA which can be pretty scary so you need a motorbike really. Italian restaurant across the road, minimart next door - jobs a good un! Again, get breakfast included if you book here and definitely sample the ice-cream!!!

Daymo Spent a few days in Bodega and would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone. It's location is perfect, right in the centre of Patong and literally 5 minutes walk from the beach and a short scooter ride to many hidden/deserted paradise-like beaches. Although the room was quite basic it was clean, cool and had a comfortable bed and mini-bar but the main reason I would recommend it is mainly down to service. The owner Robin was extremely helpful with arranging trips, transport, bikes and pretty much anything you need. The staff in the cafe Ra, Aman, Bang and Jay were extremely helpful and courteous and pretty much couldn't do enough for you, the cafe/bar itself is totally relaxing and has a nice atmosphere and is adorned with cool artwork from local talent along with funky tunes playing in the background and good drinks and food menu. At night the residents tend to congregate in the bar for a few before they head out except for Fridays which is open mic night, this is well worth checking out and will probably keep you there for the night. It has a tendency to draw a lot of Irish, American, British, Kiwi, Aussie and Canadian English teachers living in Phuket as well as the local musical talent of course (including it's own resident Rasta) and is a great place to get advise from people living in Thailand. So basically if you don't mind having no pool and are looking for an affordable room right in the heart of things then Bodega is for you. I wouldn't have any hesitations coming back!! Keep it up Bodega!

OneLittleJ I'm pretty glad to have stayed at this cute, little hotel. I like the way it perfectly fits into the Sino-Portugese building and how the interior is nicely decorated. Because of budget concern, I chose to stay in a shared room which is a lot more comfortable than I thought. The room is nice and clean... and, well, quiet. I stayed there just a couple of days, hanging out in the Old town of Phuket. Before I leave, the lady at the front desk also told me how to catch a pink local bus to the airport, and it cost just 10 baht! That's very nice of her. So, no airport shuttle needed on this trip. :)
