The Phuket hotels stated in this list are all located on either in Patong, Karon and Kata beach. All offer great value for the money and good service while the rates themselves can greatly vary from budget to 5 star luxury.
But just what is a guest friendly hotel?
A hotel that is considered guest or bargirl friendly simply means that the hotel will not charge extra for taking back an unregistered guest to your room. Bear in mind that not all hotels in Phuket have an open policy that will allow you to bring back an unregistered guest to your room. Some do outright refuse while others will smack you with a joiner fee can costs anywhere from 500+ THB a night or more depending on the hotel. So if you unknowingly book a non-guest friendly hotel and plan on taking a guest back up to your room every night for a week then you’re going to be paying a lot more money unnecessarily. I’ve taken the trouble of making a list of which ones are ok, and allow whoever you want to accompany you to your room. This is by no means an indication of their respectability as each hotel has different policies as long as you’re discreet.

For those who like nightlife the Apsara Residence is in the ideal location only a few minutes walk to Bangla Road or Jungceylon Mall and 5 to 10 mins to Patong beach. Room was very clean and modern with a good bed to sleep on though a little small since all they had left when I went there were twin rooms.

The AsiaLoop is a nice little guest house located a bit out of the way from Patong’s center (15 minutes walk from beach and 20-25 from Bangla road) but perfect if you are looking for somewhere peaceful and quiet to sleep at night. Their superior rooms are large, clean and modern with everything you need: Double bed, TV, air-con, fridge, balcony, modern bathroom with hot shower, etc. The economy rooms on the other hand while well furnished for the price can be a bit claustrophobic as they don’t have any windows or balcony. The AsiaLoop has a rooftop swimming pool which is a cool place to hang with a beer after a long day at the beach. The only negative point is they have no elevator in this 5 floor building. Otherwise a good deal while in Phuket!
- Guest Friendly policy reply by the AsiaLoop Guest House: ”Hello, the Hotel is guest friendly no worry no extra charge !! Rgds, Marco – Managing Director AsiaLooop”.
Aspery Hotel $$/$$$/$$$$
5/41-51 Patong Beach Road, Patong, Phuket
The location of the Aspery Hotel is good with Patong beach just around the corner and Bangla Road a few streets away (10 mins walk max). The rooms are clean, modern and have a little balcony. Only two downsides I can think of is that the bed is a little hard and the water in the shower had but two temperature: Too cold or too hot. Other than that of very good value for the price!

If you are looking for a clean, cheap and friendly guest house this is a great option in Phuket. They offer big rooms with queen-sized beds, TV with plenty of channels, air-con, free high speed Wi-Fi, minibar with very decent prices and hot water every time you take your shower. The downsides is like with many other guesthouses there is no elevator so if you end up with a room on the 5th floor that’s going to be a lot of stairs to climb stairs before you get to your room. In the end, a good combination of value of money and location.
- Guest Friendly policy reply by the Casa Jip Guesthouse: ”There is NO FEE for an overnight guest but the guest MUST REGISTER their Thai ID card at front desk”.

Forest Patong Hotel $/$$/$$$
46/27-29 Soi Kongbangwat pisitkorranee Road, Patong, Phuket
The Forest Patong Hotel is a new property located on the north and starting point of Patong city. Not for those who need to be in the middle of the party scene or alongside the beach as it’s a 20 to 25 minutes walk to reach either. But, if you plan on renting a scooter or don’t mind paying the 50-60 Baht for a motorbike taxi you can very easily get anywhere in Patong within 10 mins. Where the Forest Patong really shines is with the type of accommodation you get for the price. The rooms often go for just around 800/1000 Baht on Agoda and are really big on amenities.

328 Prabaramee Road, Patong, Phuket
Located in Kalim Bay, the IndoChine Resort is best suited for those who want to keep at a distance from the madness of Patong.

Guest Friendly Hotels on Karon Beach:
Baan Karon Resort $$/$$$
213 Patak Road, Karon, Phuket
The Baan Karon resort is located a 15 minutes walk from the beach. All rooms have A/C, TV, Mini bar & free Wi-fi but the standard ones feel a bit dated so I would recommend to go with the superior ones for the extra 5-7$. Overall for the money it’s a reasonable here and had no complaints.
PROS: Pool with bar, clean rooms.

- Guest Friendly policy reply by The Baan Karon Resort: ”Thank you for your interested our hotel. And about joiner you not pay more if you book a room for 2 persons with agoda.com. Best regards, Suvanit”.

Beshert Guesthouse $/$$
516/13 Patak Road, Soi Centara, Phuket
The Beshert Guesthouse is ideally located as whether heading to the beach, bars or restaurants you are never more than 5 minutes away from anything. For 500 to 1100 Baht (depending on the season) you can expect large and clean rooms a with good en-suite “wet rooms” and toilet facilites, air-con, fridge, safe, cable TV & DVD player (with a large selection of movies which you can borrow for free) and in room Wi-Fi. Overall a very pleasant place to stay and great value for money.

Karon Cliff Contemporary Boutique Bungalows $$/$$$/$$$$
691/1 Patak Road, Karon, Phuket
The location of the Karon Cliff Contemporary Boutique Bungalows is its greatest advantage. Set on the slopes of Karon you have great views of the beach and Andaman sea below. Access to the beach is easy all you need to do is follow the stairs leading down to a quiet part of the beach and from there on it’s only a 10 to 15 minutes walk to the center of Karon where all the restaurants and bars are. Otherwise don’t expect a 5-star hotel. Calling it boutique is already far fetched but you do get clean rooms of decent size with all the basic amenities.
PROS: Views, peaceful & tranquil resort.
CONS: Entry level rooms are bare and basic.
- Guest Friendly policy reply by the Karon Cliff Contemporary Boutique Bungalows: ”Booking for 1 room is maximum 2 persons occupancy (2 persons staying) You are able to bring a friend together with for 2 persons of total. With kind regards, Sandy, Ms.Sommanus Pongpraporn. -Sales and Marketing Manager”.
Karon Hillside Hotel $$/$$$
10 Soi Patak 16, Karon, Phuket
The rooms at the Karon Hillside Hotel are divided up into two sections. A newer and more modern garden wing with really nice rooms VS the original main wing with older ones. Both are of good quality rooms with all the expected amenities but for the small bump in price I’d strongly suggest booking the Superior over the Standard. The downside for many is it’s location, a good 15 minutes walk from the beach.
PROS: Grounds, pool & bar, staff, food.
CONS: 15 minutes walk to the beach or 10 minutes to Karon circle.
- Guest Friendly policy reply by the Karon Hillside Hotel: ”That is no problem, no additional charge. Best Regards, Klas. -Karon Hillside Hotel”.
481 Patak Road, Karon, Phuket
The Karon Living Room Hotel is located on the main Patak Road about 10 to 15 minutes walk from the beach. Rooms are clean spacious with all the basics: Firm but comfy beds, A/C, TV, fridge, Wi-Fi, wet room with shower & toilet. While this is no 5-star luxury resort, for the price you pay I would consider it one of the best budget value for money hotel I’ve been to in Karon during the high season. Highly recommended!
PROS: Excellent value, free Wi-Fi, great staff.
CONS: 10 to 15 minutes walk to the beach, no pool.
- Guest Friendly policy reply by the Karon Living Room: ”It’s free if she leave her ID at the reception desk. Best Regard, Neung -Reservation Dept. Karon living room hotel”.
291/4 Patak Road, Karon, Phuket
The Pineapple Guesthouse is a great option for those looking to save up as much money as they can on accomodations while retaining some level of comfort. Depending the season, the price varies from 500 to 1000 THB and for that amount you can expect clean rooms of decent size with: Big beds, TV, A/C, fridge with 2 bottles of water every day, safe, hot shower and good Wi-Fi. It’s only a 5 minutes walk to the Karon beach or 20 minutes if you want to go all the way to Kata beach. While unspectacular, the rooms are of good value for money all year round.
PROS: Low prices all year long, good Wi-Fi, Location, clean rooms.
CONS: Rooms are unspectacular.
- Guest Friendly policy reply by the Pineapple Guesthouse: ”Yes, we are guest friendly and there’s no charge. Regards, Steve”.

Guest Friendly Hotels on Kata Beach:
100/3-4 Kata Road, Kata, Phuket
A great little guesthouse for those who don’t want to spend too much on accommodations while in Kata. Rooms are clean and comfortable, bathroom was also nice, Air-Con works perfectly and the WiFi was Signal good. The best part is that its within walking distance from both Kata beach (±5 minutes) & Karon Beach (±10 minutes).
- Guest Friendly policy reply by The 3rd Street Cafe and Guesthouse Hotel: “Dear Sir, Thank you for your responds, girl policy she would have to leave her ID at the reception. and for joiner fee don’t worry about that. Best Regards, 3rdstreetcafe&Guesthouse.”.
Aspasia Hotel $$$$
1/3 Laem Sai Road, Kata Beach, Phuket
The Asparia hotel is a beautiful and intimate hotel perched on top of a hill with some terrific panoramic views of the ocean and Kata Beach. The rooms are over-sized and of high standard especially the suite (145 square meters!) which is worth the extra 50$ (IMHO) for all it has to offer. For that you get your own kitchen, dining room, living room, a big bathroom with Jacuzzi and last but not least a really huge bedroom with large bed, TV, desk, etc.
- Guest Friendly policy reply by The Asparia Hotel: “Regarding to your email, our resort do not charge for a joiner fee. Best regards, Tudtu -Reservation Team”.
Be My Guest Boutique Hotel $$/$$$
100/62 Kata Road, Kata, Phuket
The Be My Guest Boutique Hotel is located at the nortern tip of Kata just 300 meters from the beach and about a 5-10 minutes walk from Karon beach. While this is not a boutique hotel like their name would like to make it sound the rooms are spacious and clean room with a private balcony, TV with a good range of channels, A/C unit (a little noisy at times), fridge, fast WiFi (free) and a safety box. They do not have pool but for the price it’s a good deak in Kata.
- Guest Friendly policy reply by The Be My Guest Boutique Hotel: “Hello, no problems) You are welcome) Enjoy”.
BluEco Hotel $$/$$$
100/75 Kata Road, Kata, Phuket
The BluEco Hotel brand new and very clean where the furnishings are modern and the rooms spacious. The bathroom is a bit on the smaller side but there was always plenty of hot water for the shower. Downsides I found are that the bed is a little hard and there is no in room Wi-Fi (only in the lobby). Located a street back from the main road it’s a 10 mins walk to Kata beach or 15 mins to Karon beach. While not exactly a luxury resort for a 3 stars at that price I would say it’s good value. Recommended!
- Guest Friendly policy reply by The BluEco Hotel: “Dear sir If you book 1 room for 2 person when you come check-in you check-in 1 person yes, You can have 1 lady but if you check-in 2 person you can’t have lady ,if you have i charge 1000 THB/night If you need only one lady stay with you to long time about 1 week i block her for Guest Hotel If you change lady every day give ID every day too !! lady 18 years up!! Best regards, Rung”.
1/3 Laem Sai Road, Kata Beach, Phuket
The Boathouse hotel has one of the best location in Kata and no matter which one of the 56 rooms you are in the lovely beach lays right outside of your door! Free sunbeds are available and the attentive staff make sure you have everything you need throughout your stay. The beach beach bar and restaurant are one of the highlights here. While the rooms are not especially spacious they are very well furnished and comfortable. You even have your own personal espresso coffee machine. Not cheap but highly recommended for its atmosphere.
- Guest Friendly policy reply by The Boathouse on Kata Beach: “Warmest greetings from sunny Boathouse on Kata Beach, Phuket.” We are delighted to hear you are planning to visit us in a few months. Regarding to your question, we not charge additional fee because we offer the same rate although you would like to stay alone or 2 people. But we always require her ID card to leave at front desk.

The Casa E Mare hotel is located on the Southern end of Kata up 300 meters from the main road so you have access to both Kata & Kata Noi beaches within 10-15 minutes walk. The hotel is approximately 5 years old so it’s so is pretty new & modern. Rooms have large beds, TV, A/C, fridge, free Wi-Fi, safe, western bathroom (not just a wet room but a proper separate shower with glass doors) and balcony. For the 1000 – 1500THB range it’s in, the price is very decent. Recommended!
- Guest Friendly policy reply by the Casa E Mare Hotel: “Hi, Isn’t problem for the outside guest, just leave ID card, no extra charge. Hope to see your reservation. See you….”.
Dome Resort $$/$$$
98 M.4 Kata Beach, Kata, Phuket
The Standard fan rooms (picture above) at the Dome Resort were a bit of a letdown with dated rooms and old furniture. Might be acceptable for 600 THB range but otherwise I would recommend the A/C or deluxe ones which are much better if you can get any of those at a decent price in the 1000-1500 THB range. Location is 10-15 minutes from Kata Beach.
- Guest Friendly policy reply by the Casa E Mare Hotel: “Hi, Isn’t problem for the outside guest, just leave ID card, no extra charge. Hope to see your reservation. See you….”.
Honey Resort $$/$$$/$$$$

They have a pool with a unique design that is perhaps 2 meters wide but runs the entire length of the front of the hotel. Located a 5-10 minutes walk from either the center or Kata beach.

- Guest Friendly policy reply by the Kata Blue Sea Resort: “Hi, Welcome to hotel kata blue sea 1 Room can stay 2 people not Charge for girl beer bars want only Real ID card lend for Reception Thank you and see you soon, sudsiri ”.
Kata Lucky Villa & Pool Access $$$/$$$$
92/16 Koktanode Road, Kata, Phuket
The Kata Lucky Villas aren’t the least expensive property in the Kata area, but was worth paying a little more to enjoy the direct pool access some of their rooms have. I loved the fact we could have a dip stright from on our patio area. The rooms are great, spotless clean and very modern with comfortable bed and furnishings. Location also good, just a 5 minutes walk from Kata Noi beach while the road is littered with lovely restaurants & bars the way there. Downsides: No free Wi-Fi, disappointing considering the price of the room! They do sell Wi-Fi vouchers at the reception for 50 THB/ hour.
- Guest Friendly policy reply by the Kata Lucky Villa & Pool Access: “You can bring the girl from outside to stay with you (You have to find by your self) and if you want extra breakfast for her cost 250 THB / day , and she has to leave her I.D. card at the lobby between stay here.

The Kata Resort $$$/$$$$
197/1, 197/2 Patak Road, Kata, Phuket
The Kata Resort is located 1KM away from the beach (15-20 minutes walk) which is a bit further that most hotels in Kata but nothing really excessive. Formerly known as The Little Mermaid Resort, this hotel had been in serious decline over the past years but new management has taken over in June 2012 and have started some much needed renovations. Rooms are generally large and clean, fridge works perfectly, Wi-fi too, new A/C units have been since installed but the installations are still pretty dated and the water pressure low. However the new management is working on the problems so over time it should greatly improve…
- Guest Friendly policy reply by The Kata Resort: “Your welcome to stay with us. Room rate is for 2 person. No, we don’t have a fee for the joiner. Looking forward to see you. Best regards, Nang Phanchana -General Manager”.
40 / 36 Kata Road, Kata Beach, Phuket
