I loved my two week stay at the Old Phuket. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The Hotel is close to Karon beach and within a easy commute to other beautiful beaches and areas.

Just spent 11 nights here in The Old Phuket. We decided to go for the pool access which in my opinion is well worth it. The room is big and spacious and the bathroom is really big too. Great shower and has bath if you fancy a soak. The bed is pretty comfortable if not a little hard (which I... More

The hotel was great for the price we paid. The breakfast was fine, free wifi and the staff was fantastic. Downside, you can hear every door slam in the building. They need better door closures, that's for sure! Free shuttle is also available to the weekend market and to Patong. @instabuilt

Stayed here for ten nights in August. So how does one start?...Well first impressions were a little disappointing I have to say. Both of us walked through the door to our pool access room and were a little bit 'oh I see' about it. The room was very spartan, concrete floors (which were practical being at pool room level) and...

Just spent 10 days in Karon Beach at the Old Phuket. Loved the hotel, we were in the new wing. Clean, well appointed with an awesome shower and full sized bath. We got adjoining rooms on the 1st floor and had plenty of space to rattle around in. Mini bar is stocked and they don't rip you off either! Staff... More

We enjoyed our stay at The Old Phuket although it rained a lot while we were there the rooms were big enough so we didn't feel crammed in. The staff were as usual in Thailand very friendly and helpful. My only complaint was the AC caused a lot of condensation which made the floor very slippery and I slipped and... More

The staff were amazingly friendly. The hotel was very clean. The breakfasts were devine. We had so many hotels to chose from and we definitely made the right choice. Will definitely be back. My birthday was made extra special. Such an appreciated gesture.
