The Hilton Arcadia is perfectly located on Karon Beach. Close enough from Patong Beach but not too close to be affected by the overcrowding of the Patong area. The hotel has several types of room accommodation and it would be great if you could request a room on one of the higher floors of the Lotus Wing (it has 12 floors in all). If you book a club room, access to the Panaroma Lounge on the 12th floor is included for breakfast and happy hours. (5-6.30 pm). The lounge has fantastic views of the Andaman Sea and is surely worth a visit. The rooms are large and well appointed and for an old hotel, the property is immaculately maintained. Front desk, Business Center and Fitness Center staff is cheerful and helpful.
The only point that i found odd was the absence of any reading material in the hotel rooms. No Newspapers or magazines.
Overall, i was very happy and would love to go back there!More
