“Good hotel and conveniently close to airport”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2012

We arrived very late so decided to stay at the airport hotel and travel South in the morning. We weren't online to get our travel instructions and ended up paying a fortune to get to the airport hotel by taxi. It wasn't quite what we expected given the name but to be fair there really was nothing wrong with the hotel as it was very nice, has a pool and the owners are very friendly and helpful. Great place to stay near the airport!

We arrived in Phuket at 2 am, with a 3 yr old and an 18 month old, and wanted to get some downtime (and save a nights room fees) before heading to club med.
Prior to our arrival we had received an email with very clear instructions on how to get to the hotel (call them when you get your luggage, do NOT take a taxi, they will be there in 2 minutes).
True to form, we were picked up by the night manager, waiting outside with a pickup truck 10 min after calling. He took us to the hotel, showed us how everything worked, where we could go if we wanted to buy things outside of the hotel, what was open at 2 am etc...

The room was very basic, but also comfortable and above all clean. The air conditioning worked, the hotel was staffed if we wanted to grab a beer or something for the kids to eat and the water in the shower was hot.

The following morning we bought breakfast for 4 and some coffee from the hotel for the worldly sum of $16, before being whisked back to the airport for the club med shuttle.
For what we paid, I think we got great value. The owner is American, speaks English and is very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, the food was basic and edible and really the place was exactly what we wanted.
Rooms were private and secure.

So in short, if you need a place to stay overnight, this is the place. Not sure about the bad reviews b/c the owner truly went out of his way to make sure that we got what we needed in a timely manner.

Room Tip: Make sure you email ahead and understand how to get there. DO NOT take a taxi to the hotel, they wi...

This hotel, run by a friendly American/Thai couple, is a very convenient option a couple of minutes away from Phuket airport.

Upon arrival, a quick phone call and two minutes later the car showed up at the terminal to drive me to the hotel which is literally two minutes drive away. The next morning an equally quick trip back to the terminal.

This is a basic hotel, although it has a small pool. Yet everything required for a night's sleep is there, the room had a comfortable king-size bed as well as a separate single bed, air con, water boiler, a small fridge with (non-alcoholic) drinks. Free Wifi is provided and worked well for me.

There is a 7-Eleven around the corner (two minutes walk) as well as a bunch of basic Thai eateries. The hotel serves breakfast I believe however due to time constraints I opted to have it at Phuket airport after checking in - there's a Burger King, Subway and various other places serving breakfast there.

All in all an excellent option for a stay near Phuket airport if you arrive late and need to take a flight out again the next morning. There is nothing much to do in the area around the hotel however, it is really for a night's sleep and nothing else.

Ah and one final note to the people complaining about hard beds who keep writing about this in various posts on TA about different hotels in Thailand: please be advised that pretty much all beds in Asia - not just in Thailand - are firm (and many of us love that). It's a fact of life...

Our flight arrived late, but we should have just got a taxi to Patong anyway. We booked here on the advice on reviews here and at Agoda, and I think we must have stayed at a different "Phuket Airport Hotel". The room was small (as expected), the bedding consisted of ONE SHEET on a ridiculously hard mattress. The shower didn't work at all, and the toilet was blocked. At least the aircon worked (but with one sheet, who would want this?). We left early in the morning as soon as we could. All night and early morning there were people just outside making noisy phone calls in Thai. Would never stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose elsewhere.

Phuket Airport Hotel is only 600m from the airport, very convenient for those needing a transit stop. While near a busy intersection, it really is a quiet oasis. Lovely gardens, pool, outdoor restaurant/ bar (much better than I expected). Rooms surround the pool. Rooms are spotless and large. Well priced. We booked on their website and they organise an airport pickup for free. Ring when you arrive, the shuttle will be there in minutes.
Only downside was the inconsiderate tourists, loudly talking/ laughing in the pool area at 2am, oblivious that other travellers want to sleep.

Our flight came in late to Phuket Airport, however, we were able to borrow a security guys cell phone and call the Phuket Airport Hotel and moments later a very nice gentlemen swooped in to pick us up! We stayed here at the beginning and end of our trip... total of 3 nights.
The hotel is comfortable, a short 5 minute walk to the beach and has a wonderful, warm, clean pool.
I had arranged in advance of arrival massages x 4 for our group, and they were on time and amazing! They have a little massage hut next to the pool, and it was nice hearing the birds chirp and the airplanes take off, in the background. (I love listening to planes take off and land... but it wasn't too loud).
Western breakfast items available and for a great price, cooked to order. The service at this hotel was EXCEPTIONAL! The rooms aren't fancy, the shower could use directions attached to the wall (LOL), but for me, if I'm comfortable and the staff are excellent, I'm a happy camper.
They also arranged a late night massage on our last night there, spur of the moment. The young woman who was working in the office went out of her way to accommodate us and the gentleman who drives the truck ran Dominique and Karen up to the beach for a drink, then went and picked them up and brought them back... free of charge!
They also organized our trip to Phi Phi Island, making sure we got there safely and ready for us when we arrived back late in the afternoon.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Phuket, especially if you're flying in for tour.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good... this is a small hotel and all of the rooms face the pool.
