This is one of the oldest city hotel in Phuket. Rooms were renovated but as it is quit old so you still can feel and smell of it. Overall was not bad but do not expecting for 5stars service. We will reconsider to come back but most probably will try another hotel which newer than here.

Mid-range, ageing tourist hotel. All in all not bad, but have had better for the same money. Needs a lick of paint amongst other things. Good location and a decent breakfast and the staff were nice enough. Loads of Chinese package tourists. Big car park.

Stayed here for the first 3 nights. Shuttle to Patong daily for free was good to use. Not much around here for tourists but nice accommodation. Limited English speaking but managed fine. Dairy close and cheap. Friendly staff 👍🏻 wifi was excellent, apart from having to enter your code every time you went out of the zone. So keep the... More

My friend and I have just spent the last 3 nights at this Hotel. It has been a fairly pleasant place to stay although we didn't spend much time at the hotel as there was nothing really going on and it was a bit to quiet for our taste. Breakfast buffets were good and reasonably cheap. The room was nice... More

The hotel located in Phuket Town just 5 minutes walking to the Phuket town center. The hotel provided the meeting room, coffee shop and swimming pool. The room was old and a lot of dust. The price per night was fair. The staff was great and helpful. Totally average.

The pool was filled with families, with an uncomfortable volume of unmoving souls at the pool bar. Was chosen as a cheaper lodging alternative for part of the visit and it lived up to that. Rooms were mostly clean but worn. Cheerless customer service. Will like seek out a slightly higher grade of hotel if we return.

Great resort I have stayed here twice. Great service and facilities friendly staff. Amazing pool one of the biggest I have seen. Only down side for me is it's about 10 drive out of patong and you end up spending a bit of money for transport. They do have a shuttle at set times. Breakfast is good but not the... More

Look I suppose if you are looking for a hotel to swim at then I would be ok, but besides that this hotel is terrible. Our room was dirty and outdated, there was no wifi, the food in both of the restaurants was horrible to the point where we left our meal sun eaten for the fear of getting sick.... More
