The lobby is worthwhile whether you're staying as a guest or not, especially the attached museum (pay the 30 baht). The island's first full service hotel has never been a commercial success (so says their website), but it's still a decent stay in the middle of Old Town Phuket. I'm pretty sure we were the only ones staying in the... More

Once the first 5 star hotel around Phuket island now this place is a budget stay & cheap museum of local history. The rooms are enormously huge and feel empty inside, the furniture is classy and naturally vintage. The aircon is handled manually and there is a local heater in the bathroom. For 550 baht a night is a no... More

550 baht got us a room with air con, we arrived late so this was a quick choice and probably not some where we would have stayed if we'd had time to search! The characterfull lobby looked like a museum and really got us excited for the rooms....... Unfortunately the upstairs resembeled an abandoned hospital and a few doors look... More

We came across this hotel while wandering the streets of Phuket and wished someone had told us we could have booked a room here. The Thavorn Hotel on Ratsada Road was built in 1961 and was Phuket's first 5-star hotel. Today the rooms upstairs look worn these days but the grand staircase leading upstairs is in excellent condition. Downstairs has... More

Arriving in Phuket town, our reservation was cancelled so we headed to a hotel recommended by the LP guide. The hotel lobby is amazing. The elevator reminded us of an old Buick. The hallways leading to the rooms are poorly lit, stained, old and just plain spooky. The room themselves are spacious, equipped like a classy hotel back in the... More

Rooms are very spacious and pretty clean, though the sheets smelled a little musty. The rooms themselves looked like the Soviet-era rooms that my husband stayed in in non-tourist areas of Russia. Showerhead had good pressure, a pleasant surprise! The hallways and rooms def gave me a vibe of a twisted little kid wagging his finger and saying “red rum,... More

We had to sleep for 1 night in Phuket. So we picked a hotel from the Lonely planet. But it was very dirty. There was a mouse in the hallway. It was really grubby! Never go there.

We were only spending one short night in Phuket, as we flew in late and we taking the first ferry to Koh Phi Phi in the morning; hence, we picked a cheap hotel in the town from Lonely Planet. When the hotel was first built, it was the first 5-star hotel in Thailand. Unfortunately, no one has maintained the property.... More
