Our specialty is cheap fan rooms equipped to full hotel standards included free WiFi. There are various room types in this guesthouse, from budget backpacker rooms to more comfortable rooms with fridge, international cable TV and private bathroom with hot water. Also a few rooms equipped with AC. The house has its own personal atmosphere, with nice, clean airy rooms and is placed within walking distance to everything of interest here in Patong.
Patong is a unique town, with many facilities that you usually only can find in much bigger cities. There are not many places, where you can you find fabulous nightlife, gigantic shopping malls, beaches, mountains and jungle so close to each other.
Niku Guesthouse is located in the old quarters in the center of Patong, on a small street, a little away from the big roads, but close to Patong beach, the great Jungceylon shopping center, the relaxed round umbrella style outdoor bars in front of Patong gym and the famous nightlife on Bangla Road.
The house is kept in the original Thai style with small balcony's under canopies and timber framework. The use of hand carved wooden and plaited rattan furniture fits into this traditional style. In the common areas the floors are covered with natural clay tiles and in the rooms with cool white ceramic tiles. There are hot running water in all bathrooms and solid aluminum mosquito nets protects all windows in the fan rooms.
When you live in a local guesthouse, you will experience contact with a real Thai environment in an entirely different way, than it is possible in a big hotel. Your neighborhood will be local and you will be able to watch daily Thai life.
How to get around here is important. Patong is generally safe, but it newer harms to know, what to do, and particularly what not to do, in a new place with a culture completely different from your home country. We will usually be available to answer any question you might have about how to become familiar with the localities.
You are always welcome to contact us, if you want to know more about our guesthouse, best regards Niku
