stayed at the Old Phuket for 10 days in a pool access room, absolutely loved it, staff were so friendly, (bed a bit hard) but other than that we would absolutely come back, loved everything about it, location, room, bathroom, staff etc

Room Tip: highly recommend a pool access room

My wife and I went to Phuket for our honeymoon. The old Phuket hotel is perfect for a more relaxed calm beach holiday. Not as crazy as phatong which is more for the young and single. The staff are very friendly and the hotel service is better than you would expect. If you want a drink, massage, browse using free wifi or just relax at the awesome pools all of this can be done at the hotel. If you want to go to the beach it is a short stroll and you are there. Rooms are beautifully air conditioned if you want to escape the humidity of Phuket. You will not be sorry for staying at the Old Phuket hotel.

Room Tip: Stay at the hotel wing with the pool view. Ground floor rooms have a private pool entrance

This hotel is ideally situated with 2 pools on the premises & the beach across the main road about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. There are 2 parts of the hotel, the original bit which has a small rooftop pool with good views & is closer to the beach, with many restaurants just outside the hotel gates. The new building, where we stayed, is built in a square around a large pool with water features. We had a room with private terrace & direct access into a private strip of the pool which was wonderful. The rooms were huge, minimalistic & white with good A/C, a great bathroom & a big fridge. The breakfasts were extensive & varied & the pool bar did food throughout the day. The staff were helpful, if they could understand you & there was a free shuttle bus to various places (essential to book this service).

Room Tip: Pay a bit extra & have a poolside room - it's really worth it, especially if you don't l...

Very good Value for money. I have stayed here with my wife for a week long vacation or you can tell second honeymoon. We loved the hotel as it has very good properties specially the new building. Stuffs are very helpful and well behave. Me and my wife like this one very much. Go for it if you want a peace full holiday.

Room Tip: Try to book the room in the new building

Have visited Karon on several occasions but our first stay at The Old Phuket. We had a Pool Access room and found it very nice, all the staff are very friendly and very helpful. Would definitely recommend The Old Phuket and would definitely visit again, the location and surrounding restaurants and shops are ideal and well located.

We recently had a weeks stay in the new wing with a pool access room, staff were very friendly and helpful, the resort was clean and well maintained. The pool bar makes snacks & great cocktails! In a nice quiet location but close to the beach, cafés and shopping. Awesome little Thai restaurant in the lane "Bai Toey" ate there three times!
