After reading the reviews on trip adviser, I was a little nervous. But this hotel was just fantastic. We arrived around midnight, and there were numerous friendly staff there to welcome us, take our bags, help us with wifi, restaurants and give us advice on the hotel. The room was beautiful, we stayed in the Sino Wing, and looked over... More

The location is very good as it is set back from the busy main road and secluded. Also the location within Karon is good as you have a great choice of bars and restaurants. The beach is lovely but a lot of jellyfish in the sea. Hotel itself is very clean and tidy. Breakfast is ok but would prefer more... More

This I have to say is one amazing place. Its on Karon Beach which is a quieter beach away from Patong areas. The hotel hasn't got beach frontage but is literally a 5 min walk. The rooms are THE biggest I have ever stayed in . Literally enormous. We stayed in the newer part of the hotel with pool view... More

We had a lovely welcome on arrival and we were upgraded to a room with a private jacuzzi The accommodation in the Sino Wing ( the older part of the hotel) was absolutely perfect so very quiet and peaceful and as I mentioned we had a private jacuzzi...

Recently stayed at The Old Phuket and it was great. The entry to the Hotel looked special, reception staff at welcome were fantastic spoke good English and knowledgable. The man who took us to the room was so funny. First impressions of the two rooms we had was a nice surprise smelling of lemongrass and beautiful clean and bright. We... More

A beautifully kept hotel with friendly staff and a great location. There is a choice of older rooms in the old hotel building or newer rooms with poolside balconies, we stayed in the old building. The room was adequately sized but you don't spend much time in the rooms. If the pool at the new building is too full for... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 weeks, we had a private jacuzzi room in the Sino wing and I absolutely loved it, in my opinion it was the best room in the hotel. The jacuzzi got its full use during our stay, great to relax and unwind after a heavy day at the beach (sunbathing is exhausting afterall), or... More

This hotel is really 2 different hotels joined by a central large former colonial type house which serves as reception and meeting area. If you like staying in a goldfish bowl but with lovely rooms then pick the serene wing. If you prefer a room with character but a little dated then pick the Sino wing. We had a room... More

My partner and I stayed at The Old Phuket 2 years ago in their Sino wing and found the location, the pools and the friendly staff wonderful. Oh the breakfasts! The breakfasts didn't disappoint 2 years later! We had already decided we were having the omelette on the first morning and it was awesome. This time we stayed in the... More

After the bustle of a few days in Bangkok this was a great place to stay. The hotel we'd been staying at in Bangkok was a grand business-persons hotel. The Old Phuket in comparison felt like a proper holiday hotel. On arrival we were greeted at reception with drinks. The staff were very friendly & helpful. The reception is lovely,... More
