Back for a second visit. Even better 8 nights spent in the hotel. Great price and lovely pool. Staff also excellent. The hotel web site does not do it justice. Rooms are huge and the grounds are spacious. Cannot wait to visit it again next time.

Rooms are of the best. Easy access to pool, lovely balconies and view of the mountain is just wonderful. The word Serene speaks for itself. Easy access to beach, restuarants. Thai food less expensive, loved the food at Baitoey Thai cuisine and days tours booked via Buffalo tours of the best. Phi Phi island tour with Sexy Mo Mo was... More

We are a couple in our 60's wanting a no fuss, no pressure holiday and the Old Phuket at Karon certainly catered for our specific requirements. We spent 21 days at the Old Phuket and have now returned to Australia relaxed and looking forward to the challenges over the next 12 Months. Our room was more than we expected and... More

What a time we had. We has a lovely room in the Serenity wing with our own pool access. The cleaning service was top notch. The staff was so helpful and the daily breakfast out of this world. The taxi service at the hotel was very good and went out of their way to accommodate our request. What a holiday... More

This hotel is lovely, with direct pool access to the pool from rooms on the ground floor and lovely balconies for the upper floor rooms in the serene wing. The rooms and bathrooms are spacious and well appointed. The staff and tour operator at the hotel are knowledgeable and friendly. The hotel restaurant and restaurants in the vicinity offer good...

We travelled as a family and stayed for 8 nights. We booked 2 adjoining pool access rooms. These are fantastic rooms and I strongly recommend paying the extra. Awesome to step from patio to the pool. Whilst our rooms weren't interconnected, it didn't matter as we could access each room from our patios. Staff were great and arrived mid morning... More

Booked here as part of a 7n package with flights through flight centre in Australia. We stayed in older half of the hotels, rooms weren't as nice as new refurbished wing but they were clean and well maintained. Do you really go on holidays to spend it in your room anyway? Buffet breakfast included had a good selection including custom... More

The rooms were enormous with balconies for every room....as far as we could see. You are only 5 minutes stroll to the beach with an assortment of shops along the way. If the beach is not your thing then there are ample pools at The Old Phuket, with each room over looking at least one of the pools. Our room... More

Stayed here at the end of June for 3 nights in a pool entry room, it was amazing! Staff really nice. Location great, short walk to beach and lots of restaurants and bars. Breakfast good too. Would definitely go back!

The Old Phuket seemed to have a bit of a mis match of different themes throughout the hotel. Apparently it was based on Norwegian architecture but I think I would have preferred a more authentic Thai style. The room we had was very light and spacious with a good view of the pool and large balcony. The room included a... More
