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 downstairs that you can use. Very clean and secure. The owner is very nice and he and the staff are very helpful! If you aren't sure of what to do while in Phuket then ask them or the owner! The owner speaks English very well also and is so nice and helpful! They have motorcycles for rent to get around town or you can get them to call you a cab, and catch a tuk tuk back!
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 hot meal at any of the nearby coffee shops serving local food. The new shopping district with big malls is 5 minutes away by songteaw, the public van transport.
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 with even more choice of food than we expected. The apartment is very safe with a Key card access, safety box inside closet and night security guard. The apartment is located in Samkong area of Phuket Town (North), along Yaowarat Road. The apartment is very quiet, behind the busy traffic roads. You will find all the local food restaurants nearby, as well as hair dresser, convenience store, different bars (not Patong bar; all aged…
If you want a large, impeccably clean room with helpful staff for half the price it would be elsewhere on the island, look no further. However, there is a down side - the apartments are in the middle of the island, but perhaps with the money you save you could rent a car and then this would be a good place from which to explore the island. The other drawback is that, although there is about six inches of mattress, the beds are really unbelieveably hard and there is only cold water in the handbasin. The "free" Wi-Fi is only half an hour, but the whole day is only 30 baht. Eating nearby is a bit difficult, but Tesco Lotus and other major retail outlets are not too far away. Great free parking. Overall, recomended for great value for money.
We took the taxi from Phuket bus station to this hotel. It was a bit hard to find the place as the sign for the hotel wasn't very big & obvious. The hotel & the room looked very modern & new. Staff were friendly & greeted us with a smile upon our arrival. The free wifi was a let down for us, as we thought it was unlimited usage (As stated in the hotel facilities). Turned out that we were only allowed 30 mins internet usage/day! That, we were only informed by staff when we enquired about the free wifi. If you don't have a motorbike, then there aren't many places that you can get to by foot.
