Reviewed January 17, 2010

I picked this hotel on the Internet for four reasons: big rooms (for 3 beds), looked clean & modern, close to the beach, quiet location. Thankfully Old Phuket proved to be all of these and more. Rooms were excellent (stayed in its Serene wing) although the beds are very firm (ie. hard), staff very helpful & cheerful, pool was brilliant, location is handy to a reasonable market and selection of restaurants, it’s just across the road to the beach (not crowded). Hotel buffet breakfast was good, then other meals from local restaurants, etc. Taxi to Patong was 300Bt for larger markets & shopping, etc. Will definitely be back – can’t think of any real negatives - strongly recommended.

We had been staying for a total of 9 nights in the Old Phuket after reading on several reviews online about the price-ratings for various resorts and the different beaches of Phuket. It was the right choice, as Karon Beach is more quite than e.g. Patong and the Old Phuket offered us the things we wanted: a jaccuzzi on the balcony, a short distance to the ocean, flexible room service, fast laundry service, several pools in the shadow for my sun-burned-plagued back and quick room service for afternoon stay ins.

Stayed here on 18th December for two nights. The hotel is located on The west side of karon beach in the not so nice area (perhaps somehow affected by the Tsunami? It is about 50 metres from the beach, on a strip of shops (Tailors restaurants etc). The original building does have some character - we stayed in the regular rooms and I would say the standard is a modest 3 star equivalent. The staff were friendly enough.the service is reasonable not great. The hotel is secluded and safe - down a secured driveway from the streets of Karon. I guess if you are looking for a very reasonably priced holiday this place would be ok. I am conscious that there may be more expensive rooms available (ours was called a deluxe room but was quite modest). so once again if you are looking for value it is ok. Upon checking out the staff tried to put any possible imaginable charges onto our rooms, so be careful. I guess it is to be expected with a value hotel! Just be aware that currently there is a big building being built right next door. They start quote early in the morning so if you are a light sleeper may I suggest that you enquire as to whether you it is still going on.
Enjoy!
