If you consider to book this hotel; don't. If you already booked it; cancel and go somewhere else. One of the worst hotels out of over 100 hotels I stayed in the last 10 years. The hotel is located near a street of tourist oriented restaurants, I enjoyed this. Across the street is the beach which I haven't visited. The... More

Thank you for the friendly and welcoming service. We were really happy with the hotel and the service which we has received. Your hotel is beautiful. The rooms were clean, staff were friendly, breakfast was good and the hotel was beautiful. The location of the hotel was perfect as well.

Great location, short stroll to the beach along a pedestrian street with restaurants, shops and massage places. The staff were friendly and helpful, checking in to see that all was OK. Stayed in the Sino wing which had been renovated and enjoyed the use of the small pool on the 3rd floor. The wifi was good and free of charge.... More

We spent a week in The Old Phuket resort in January 2016, and can't speak highly enough about the place! The room was very clean and comfortable. The bed was quite hard, but we enjoyed that! The breakfasts were excellent, with more than enough of the delicious food. The environment was clean and beautiful, and the staff were not only... More

Despite nice location and good buldings my vacation was spoiled by rude security personal while I was walking throught hotel territory. Also the huge area occupied by hotel is their dissadvatages - there is no landscape design to photo or small shops to calm down from heat. So seems they reserved place for nothing and tourist should walk significant distance... More

We stayed here last year and found the location to be perfect. Walking distance to the beach and town from the front entrance and all the bars and restaurants from the back entrance. The staff were all pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was fine with plenty of choice. We had a pool view room which was clean and spacious.

We had 8 nights at this hotel very clean beds and towels changed daily we were on 3rd floor right by pool which was lucky as sun loungers sparse, you need to get by pool door by 9.45 open at 10. It would have been good if you could change pool towels by pool but if you need clean pool... More

I have always come back to Old Phuket hotel Maybe its because of the service staff. I have had always a pleasant stay here. There are restaurants nearby. And its not a noisy place hence you can enjoy your nights :)
