People don't come to Phuket Town to spend much time; it's usually just a resting point before hopping on a ferry to the Phi Phi islands. However, if you're looking for a nice place to stay along the way, this is it. It's not too far away from the Sea Angel Pier (~20 minute drive) and there's a pretty decent restaurant across the street (Lemongrass). The rooms are clean, modern, and comfortable. There's a nice onsite pool if you're looking to take a dip. There's no breakfast and coffee will set you back 60baht (~$2). However, you're not looking to stay for more than a night, are you?
Don't get me wrong, this is a really nice place! I'm just assuming that most people looking to stay in Phuket Town are most likely looking for a place to stay before/after going to the pier to visit the Phi Phi islands. With that said, I wouldn't recommend any other place in Phuket Town!
