Let me firstly say that after moving to Patong the next night that Karon beach is far better than Patong - far less harassment, way cleaner beaches and a far more relaxed vibe. Old Phuket is a pretty property with lots of old Portugese charm and the staff are top notch. My pool view room was spacious with a recently renovated, and spectacular, bathroom. With that said, I struggled to get work done on my tablet because the wi-fi did not work on two occassions (from a one night stay) and the blinds to the bathroom, which looks out onto the pool (so others can see you in the shower) were crappy steel string-pull shutters and, wouldn't you know, got stuck.

Due to having excursions booked every day we didn’t spend too much time in the hotel. But from what we saw of it you can’t ask for much more for the price you pay. We were upgraded to a lovely room on the top floor on the serene wing, with an amazing bathroom. The room was cleaned everyday. Our only complaint would be the maids were not the most friendly. We had the do not disturb sign on every night (we have been woken in other hotels in the past by the maid barging in). Yet the maids at this hotel didn’t seem to pay attention. The breakfast choice was decent, and there is enough for everyone. The pool area is small but the hotel was pretty quiet anyway. We had lunch a few times at the pool bar and it was great quality and a good price too. The chef Jack was great!

Lovely gem of a place to stay. Friendly staff from reception, restaurant and housekeeping. Buffet breakfast was good so was organising our day tours. Aircons, bathroom, safe were all in excellent working condition. Pool was lovely to cool of in. Nice to see that maintenance of one block was happening and that paving near restaurant was being done. A well maintained and run hotel with excellent staff and grounds

This is well situated in Karon Beach. 15 minutes from Patong Beach. Great size rooms and amenities. If I come back I'd get a pool side room. Not that there's anything wrong with the other rooms. The breakfast menu wasn't to bad. Down the road there are lots of restaurants and massage rooms. Around 400 to 600 Thai Bar. Had a great time. Would recommend

The rooms were not cleaned properly the staff were rude very rude. I had a white singlet on and it was green when I got out the pool must of been algi. The security guards were very nice just the rest of the staff never made sure the rooms were properly serviced I will never stay here again it was a fithly room and I got ripped off with the scooter hire very sly and sneaky hotel stay at your own risk I won't be ever again.

This was our third stay at The Old Phuket and it won't be our last. Great location, quiet and walking distance to everything or an hour blue bus ride into Old Phuket Town for 20 baht. Breakfast buffet is great, the staff are friendly, the rooms are beautiful. We pay extra for a poolside room. We cannot fault this place. Across the road from the beach.

The staff here can't do enough for you. The rooms are lovely and very clean. The breakfast is great with lots of variety. Lee looks after us at breakfast she is amazing!!! So kind and genuinely a lovely person.

Location is great, very friendly staff, easy access to beach and Main Street with so many restaurants, shops and whatever you need. I hope I’m able to come back and stay again. Room was clean, outdoor shower was fantastic, and everyone so lovely! I kept food out of my room, and had no problems with ants or any bugs. Often the front gate was fine with a hello, but coming back from the beach, you have to show your card...there is a sign that even says so. I was a solo traveler and had to show every time from beach area...that made me feel more secure bc they aren’t letting just anyone thru. I’m sure they don’t get a lot of solo travelers. Most people head to the 7-11 type store for rations, but there is a Tesco that is closer, has more selections and better prices.

We stayed 3 nights in total at The Old Phuket. Good clean and spacious accommodation. We were upgraded from a standard room to a little cottage Room 111. Great big bath, hot shower(outside), room safe, tv, wifi, little patio/garden. The swimming pool is just 100 metres away, some rooms open on to it. The long beautiful beach is also just 100 metres in other direction. We enjoyed a lovely american buffet breakfast each day. The staff are all very welcoming and friendly. Definately would returnnif visiting area again. ****
