Sleep where you drink
A far departure from the usual rooms we see above bars, the Tiger Inn has classy rooms and professional service.
The hotel is locally owned by a family who run several hotels and bars in the area. Proving that not only 20-somethings like to sleep where they drink, the rooms are maturely furnished with comfy beds, reading lamps, and modern Western-style bathrooms with tubs. Every room is air-con with satellite TV, a well-stocked minibar, free WiFi and phone. The larger suite rooms have a semi-separate living room and some are connected to each other. The tiger-stripe print pillows and decor accents may not be to everyone’s taste but the rooms are otherwise modern looking. The cave-like Tiger Restaurant and Bar downstairs can get very rowdy, but guests at the Tiger Inn claim all noise they hear comes from traffic below -- not from the bar. The elevator to get to the rooms is based right next to the bar’s live band stage -- you may have some lost souls wandering the halls. It’s a quirky place, but, hey, if you’re in Patong, you might as well go full quirk.
