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 friends room and gave us our money back! Clean, big and light rooms!
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 consisted of tea and toast. We arrived late at night so didn’t explore the area but I think it was in a residential area near to the hospital. I’m not sure whether there were any restaurants nearby as we didn’t go looking but there were 2 minimarts very close by. I can’t fault the place for value as this was probably one of the nicest rooms for a budget price that we have stayed in whilst traveling around Asia, in a way it was a shame we had to leave…
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 place is great!
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 far and away the best hotel we stayed in during our 6 week trip around SE Asia! Breakfast may be a little bland (just coffee and toast) but it was grand. If they were to get a kitchen sorted out for breakfasts it would most definitely be a 5* place!! We absolutely would recommend it to anyone and would stay again!
