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.

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...

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.
