Its a bit hard to get there at first. But once you learn where exactly it is on the map, you'll find it very convenient location! Me Nd my partner stayed for 3 nights before moving to Patong area. The room is SUPER BIG! And the bed, which I found out later they put two 3.5" singles together to make... More

Just spent one night as we took a ferry next morning. The place is a little bit hidden but the taxi from Phuket airport got there without hesitation. English barely spoken although they are very helpful. Clean and spacious rooms. Perfect for a stopover.

Samkong place is a great little cheap hotel just outside Phuket town. We stayed here one night, catching the ferry to phi phi in the morning and this place was perfect for that. Such good value! We did have one incident where the power went out in one of our rooms but they organized two beds for us in our... More

We stayed here for one night en route from the Airport to the ferry to another island and were very pleased with our choice. The rooms at Samkong place were very big and clean, with king sized bed and tastefully decorated. TV with English speaking movie channels and wifi in the rooms. The staff were friendly and the free breakfast... More

Extremely clean, friendly staff. They have a electronic safe, 2 complimentary water bottles per day, and free wifi (as well as two computers in the lobby). It's about 20 min walk to town, but there's a bus that you can take for 10 baht down into the city center. If you want to spend any time in Phuket Town, this... More

This hotel, while a little difficult to find at first (we decided to walk from the town!! 4kn later...) is most definitely worth the trek! Spotlessly clean, beautiful spacious room, big bed, comfortable nights sleep! Balcony is lovely too and the staff were so helpful, they helped us hire motorbikes and gave us a map of the town. This was... More

Great and cheap place to stay! I believe the reason they are cheap is because they do not have much amenities, such as the coffee pot, hairdryer, pool, robes, in place restaurant or huge complimentary breakfast. They do have a tv in the room, toast and coffee in morning, fridge in room, great service, and free wifi, and 2 computers... More

This 30-room boutique apartment hotel is ideal for the family. The big aircon room is clean and comfy with a balcony and sink for washing laundry. There is an attached bathroom with hot and cold water, fridge, writing table, cupboards, wardrobe, lamps, double bed and IDD tel. A self-service continental breakfast comes with the room but walk out for a... More

We stayed 3 nights early February 2011. We were very happy about this boutique apartment. The staff is always smiling and friendly, although not highly proficient in English. They will help you as best as they can. The rooms are spacious, new and clean. There is TV, hot shower, comfortable bed, safety box and free towel. Breakfast is very good... More
