This is probably the best value for what you pay in all of Phuket! My boyfriend and I ran into a lot of logistical discrepancies with our hotel and car reservations but the general manager who spoke good English helped us out with so much enthusiasm and patience! I am always too lazy to write reviews but this was a well deserved one so here it is, 6 months later!
The hotel itself is centrally located, quietly tucked away from a main street but walking distance to lots of eateries. We enjoyed local food around the corner (graciously recommended by the staff), a short car ride to Bangla road for a night out, and a spacious room with entertaining movies both Thai and international. My boyfriend also found a great haircut for $3 (including tip) nearby as well! I felt very secure in this location and especially in the hotel, although there isn't an elevator so I hope you have either light luggage or a low floor. Don't worry, they help you with that too if you'd like!
We had just come from a bad experience traveling from Koh Samui with a shady company that made us feel a little reluctant to trust some Thai locals but we were greeted with the infamous Thai Smile and hospitality we loved so dearly with the staff at Samkong! Highly recommended and would stay again!
Staff was always incredibly friendly and helpful with any requests. Hotel room was large with balcony, great bathroom and frequent room cleaning service with fresh water in the fridge everyday! Good distance from Phuket Old Town and many markets and restaurants we frequented daily, which we walked to. Also walked to Phuket Town to catch the numerous buses to the nearby beaches. Wifi is decent, with frequent password changes (every couple of days, good for security). If we go back to Phuket, would stay here again!
Great place at low price photo seen like being chrome but no worry clean and safe if u drive or ride walking nearby food eat or 24hrs market 👍🏼friendly English spoken front desk acess key to get in 2nd door to room big cool aircon , own carpark with security make it feel safe 👍🏼 value for money
We've visited this hotel for 1 night. Our room was for 3 person. Big room, old furniture, not LD tv.. But balcony was pretty huge. Personal speak English well. Breakfast has not wide of choice meals, just bread and tea.. Location is good, you can find everything even at night. I can recommend this hotel for another guests.
Samkong Place is a good Guest House (Apartment). Price is cheap for each room. Good Service with heart. An operator speaks nice when you call for asking some information. Room is clean. But breakfast is limited of choice.
Lots of food nearby.
