When would be the best time to stay in guest friendly hotels in Phuket? The best time to stay depends on your budget and the cheapest time is from May till the end of October. So What is a Phuket Guest Friendly Room Anyway? It is a hotel, resort, or guesthouse in Phuket or Patong that doesn’t charge a fee for an extra guest to stay with you. You don’t want to get slugged with an extra fee at the end of the night, so staying at a place with no joiner fee is recommended.
