They are all within a couple of minutes walk of TEFLPlus, just a few minutes from Patong beach, near the post office, banks, bars and restaurants.

Not all have websites, so it can be difficult to book in advance of your arrival in Phuket. Our recommendation is not to book before you get here, but to check them out once you've arrived. This may mean staying elsewhere for the first night, but it will be worth it to make sure you get a room you are happy with.
