A recommended hotel. The location of this hotel is strategic and the workers there are very friendly. A 24 hour laundry shop can be found near the hotel and there is a 24 hour grocery shop just opposite the hotel which you can arrive in a few 1 minute from the lobby by walking.
If you've expected a nice 'hotel', you might get disappointed. As others mentioned this hotel is quite old and far from luxury. But compared to other hostels we stayed in Phuket Town this hotel was a great choice. Get an deluxe room with a/c for this money in town won't be so easy. This hotel is located bit away from the old town, local bus terminal and local market but they are reachable by foot anyway. Close to Robinson department store. Since it's bit off from the touristic old town, it has some good features. Restaurants around are very local, tasty and cheap. Surrounding is quite during day and night. It might be difficult to find but due to its history many locals know where it is anyway. And there's big neon sign on the top of the building. Highly recommend for budget travelers.
After a disappointing walk hostel to hostel being told everything is full we decided to bite the bullet and go to the fancy looking hotel. It turned out to be one of the cheapest places we stayed on our whole trip. Nice room with A/C, no complaints here.
If I could give it less than one star I would! Booked last min, needed a place. Room was dismal, bathroom reeked of sewage. Air-con was terrible. Bed was filthy. Worst part, upon checking in, they photo copied both of our passports, received mine back. Didn't get my partners passport. I told them we need it back, and they said yes one moment. So we went on our way to the room to drop the bags, we were also very tired after our journey. When we went to check out. Passport was no where to be seen. Manager not present to open the office which we knew the passport was in. Our thoughts are that they didn't take it out of the copier. Still in process of getting it back!!!! Do yourself a favour and avoid this place. Unacceptable!!
We had originally booked 3 nights at this hotel and couldn't wait to leave after 2. Rooms budget & cheap but clean. Despite DO NOT DISTURB sign on door, room was entered when we were out. Paid for room with breakfast. First morning after waking the waiter up who was asleep on sofa we managed to get half our breakfast. Second day woke up the waiter again, got coffee & no breakfast and was told the kitchen was closed at 8.15am. Demanded refund and was offered a complementary breakfast???? Terrible hotel terrible customer service. The trip was made worse by there being absolutely nothing to do in that area!!!!
I've been there a few times for biz travel. The price is cheap, location is good for transportation, nearby the place for eating. But the room is too old, some room, aircon is hot, not cool. It's suitable for short stay 1 night and save money.
Decent room, with a good bathroom close to old town. It's quite noisy with other guests but it's easily accessible and clean. Bed (blankets and pillow) were comfy and AC was good. The wifi in the rooms were shocking even though we paid extra but the wifi in the lobby was free and relatively quick. I would go back again if I was staying near old town as its a good price for what you get.
I only stayed for one night, but the place is seriously out-dated and is in need of a revamp. Initially I didn't think much of it when I first checked in, as I was there for such a short period of time, but once I got to my room that changed. The room was musty and smelled like smoke. It didn't seem clean at all, as there were pockets of dust everywhere and parts of the wallpaper were ripped, discoloured and there were quite a few holes in it. The curtains were also ripped and there were bugs in the room. The room itself was quite big and the shower was hot, however the service was also lacking and I didn't find any of the staff to be particularly helpful, especially when I asked for their recommendations on places to eat. Although it was relatively cheap, considering the lacklustre service and dirty room, I still thought it was overpriced for what it was and would not recommend i.
Nice hotel, reasonable price, clean, good service friendly. near many interesting places.,internet fast and works well.all in all a very comfortable place to stay. I had liked my stay here and I will come again.
We stayed there for 1 night. First it looked like very nice hotel. Everything good, air conditioning, terrace, ok bathroom etc. But when we were supposed to go sleep, my friend saw huge cockroach under his bed, some of the bed sheets had not been changed for long time. When we turned the beds upside down, we found totally 4 cockroaches which we hunted down with glass and paper. We turned them into reception and we wanted to change the room. So we did but first thing in new room was nice juicy cockroach sitting on the table. Then we decided to go back to our old room because cockroaches there had been hunted down. Otherwise could be nice hotel but cockroaches made it nightmare. Wont ever go there again :(
