On arrival me and my wife + child age 15 got a glas of tropic juice at the reception -nice after an exiting drive from the airport !!! :-)
2 bellboys were around us at once in the "good way" - both became 20 bath in tips - One of theme took us up to the 7. floor with our 3 bags - wonderful.
The Roome had a good size for 3 - could be a little bigger but what the h....... it was holiday. We should only stay for 1 night (our final destination were Kata Beach - but Merlin Hotel was included in our flightticket). We went down on th 3. or 4. floor for a swim in the pool - (Nice but small pool), and then we went out of the hotel and a TAXI-driver took us "by our hands" and said that he would drive us around Phuket Town for app. 200 bath - he said that there was nothing much to see in the area of the hotel......3 hour´s later we were back !!!!!!! and he got his 200 bath and 100 bath in tips - because he has droven so carefully and showed us so much.....very nice guy - can´t remember his name, but he can be trustet..... - The hotel´s dinner was OK (but I think the most expensive of our 14 days in/on Phuket) still cheap for an european - Nothing to do in the evening - too far from the center og Phuket Town if you are tired after 12h of flying.
Next morning: Breakfast very, very good - one chef only for diff. typs of egg´s ! and an ok morning buffet.
Would like to come back - but only for 1 or 2 nights there is nothing much to do at the hotel.
Oh by the way - 3 bottles of water for free at arrivel in the hotelroom. :-)

My husband and I were in Phuket Town for one month and just so happened upon the Merlin in Phuket Town. I have to say for the $$ the hotel is worth it. The rooms were clean and comfortable with carpet!!
The staff were very friendly. We even stayed at the Patong Merlin and I have to admit I was disappointed. We paid triple the price and the hotel room was not as comfortable. We had to switch rooms due to an ant problem. I think you are paying for the location.
As for the location of the Phuket Merlin Hotel-it's a little distance from Patong but it gives you a taste of Thai culture. There is a shuttle that goes to the Patong Merlin Hotel which we used often. The Phuket Merlin is about 5 min taxi to the heart of Phuket Town where the Metropole hotel sits.
I would recommend this hotel for anyone that is looking for a basic clean room. It is a 3.5 star in my book.

  • Liked — The service and shuttle to Patong Beach
  • Disliked — Far from beach
