The Hotel location is better than i expected, service is good and the staff are helpful. What i find unreasonable and crazy is the compulsory New Year's Eve dinner: 4500 THB/ adult, 2250 THB/child and no any drink is included. What a rob of money! !

We stayed here for 9 nights in late November and had a great time. We stayed in the Sino wing on the ground floor and we couldn't have been happier with the room and it's location. It was very clean, bed was hard but very comfy, bath was great and the outdoor shower was handy. The breakfasts were delicious and... More

We recently stayed at old Phuket hotel for 5 nights with our 2 year old daughter. First of the location was great, short walk to restaurants, beach, and massages. The pool is great but at times I felt like I was intruding on the pool access suites, we stayed in the pool view suites in the serene wing (definitely stay... More

The Old Phuket hotel is truly amazing. My partner and i was there over the Christamss and New year period. The Christamss and New Year buffet dinner was great, they really went all out in preparing for the special occasions. Overall, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are great and the services offered by the hotel are... More

We arrived at the old Phuket resort after staying at the Hilton for 7 nights. The location of the hotel is handy, being only a few minutes walk to the beach and Patak road. I don't want to sound too negative but I am giving you our honest opinion on this hotel on the whole.The breakfast was not nice and... More

What a wonderful experience in Phuket and thanks to the Old Phuket! Great location and very affordable! My husband and I spent our honeymoon in Phuket and we were so glad that we stayed at the Old Phuket. From the decoration of the room, to breakfast, to experiences with the staff... all were A++ (in ebay terms). We have chosen... More

The location is very nice, beautiful beach and quieter then Patong beach. The rooms are basic but otherwise adequate. The plumbing can be problematic as our toilet blocked twice but was fixed immediately by the staff. Improvements can be made to the number of daily transfers to Patong offered by the hotel because the shopping in Patong offers more (... More

After spending most of our time in Patong Beach it was nice to move to the quieter Karon Beach area to finish our holiday. We approached the reception staff and they told us a room costs up to $200 AUD a night. However we searched the net and found a room for $83 AUD which included Breakfast. On arrival we... More

The staff were very nice & helpful, but as far as value for money goes, there's much better places too stay. The breakfast that was included in the price of the room, was basically catering for the european guest that stayed at the hotel. The hotel doesn't have restaurants within it's grounds which meant we had too pay higher prices... More
