Stylish rooms, very popular, gay friendly
Located on the soi leading to the Paradise complex, parallel to Bangla Road, Connect is a long-running spot that’s been treated to an upgrade since our previous visits.
This 17-room guesthouse courts and attracts a largely gay clientele and, whatever your leanings, you’re sure to be charmed by the one of a kind rooms and lovely staff. The rooms, all painted white with silk accents on the king-sized beds, each have air-con and fans, kettles, cable TV, mini-fridges, safes and ensuite bathrooms with hot water showers. They are a bit more generic looking than they once were, but happily the rooms remain very well priced. The cafe and bar on the ground floor is a popular gathering spot and looking rather more chic these days, found right in the centre of a cluster of bars and guesthouses. If you are interested in exploring Patong’s gay scene, this is the perfect hub.
