“Thank you Nut”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2014

From the moment we walked into our room we knew we had made the right choice. It was one of the biggest rooms I have ever stayed in and just open the sliding doors and the pool is at your door step. Buffet breakfast was most enjoyable and all the staff were outstanding. One in particular was Nut. From the first night he did all he could to help us, thank you again Nut.

We were originally booked in the Sino wing but got upgraded to the Serene wing. The Serene wing rooms were incredibly spacious and the bathroom is large with a rain shower. 2 pools, one rooftop in sino wing and the other one in serene wing filled with jets. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating, and they will be the reason why i will definitely book again! The hotel is a few meters walk from Karon beach which is beautifully tranquil compared to Patong beach. The hotel provides a free shuttle to Patong, Night market and other shopping areas which is a great advantage. Only downside is that free wifi is only available in wifi zone in lobby... but it is a great opportunity to meet other travelers.

Room Tip: Choose the new serene wing, sino wing has very small rooms.

We had a great stay in the Serene Wing. It was clean and tidy. The bathrooms were stunning with rainfall showers and a unique layout. It's also a great location close to the beach, plenty of restaurants, tailors, massage places and markets. The staff were also friendly and spoke good English. Thanks heaps The Old Phuket. We'll be back.

Stayed at this hotel for one week. we really enjoyed our stay. We had a Jacuzzi room in the older part of the hotel this suited us just fine. our room was large with an out door Jacuzzi to the front a large bathroom and then a monsoon shower out side at the back of the room, lovely. Rooms were cleaned very well each day .
Breakfast was very good. cooked well.wide choice and friendly attentive staff. Two swimming pools at this hotel we preferred the quieter one on the roof top but the other one was fine too. The location of the hotel was great . 2 min walk to the beach. lots of good restaurants all around .

Room Tip: Wifi is avaliable free in reception area or you can buy a card for wifi in your room.

We stayed in Sino wing. Old but still very acceptable. Room bathroom requires upgrade. Good selection of restaurants and bars around. Swimming pool on third floor of Sino wing very nice. Karon Beach far enough away from the fleshpots bars of Patong. Breakfast buffet with good choice of European and Thai foods.
Very good mid range hotel.

We booked the new wing for 3 nights,

Firstly, the room smells like just painted. The duvet cover is never really white, a little bit dirty grey makes you do not want to lay on the bed. One day we found some blood on it, how disgusting! The pillow cover have black marks on it. The king size bed is just the integration of two single beds with very hard mattress and bad quality pillows. Very noisy air-con. How could you really fall asleep on such bed in such a noisy and paint smelling room!

The 1st day night when we wanted to shower there was no cold water!! We called the reception, he asked us to wait for the engineer to repair, it was 9pm already, we requested to change a room he said OK and asked us to wait, we said to go with him to another room together because we do not want to wait. As so we carried our luggage by ourselves without any apology from the hotel and changed the room. In the other room, the boy helped to put the two beds together "making" a SO CALLED "KING" size bed and made up the bed all by himself. We asked him, why do not ask the housekeeping lady, he said "ONLY him" at that time.

The most humiliating is that, when we checked out. They told us there were two umbrellas in the room, and the front desk manager Ms. Sauy said she would check every room by herself to confirm the room was ready to sell! Then why our former room had no cold water(based on other customers reviews, also mentioned the water system problem)???!!!!We were very sure when we opened the wardrobe there was only one umbrella and we just used once to the swimming pool and brought it back!!!! How could you prove you checked the room and how could you prove there were two umbrellas, do you any evidence??!! The night we checked-in changed a room there was ONLY one boy making up the bed for us, no room service actually! ASK him how many umbrella there were, if you neglected your duty without checking, just say it. Do not frame the guest! We were pissed-off and she said we did not need to compensate. Oh, my lady Gaga, of course we do not need, because there was only one! How stupid and rude services!

NEVER BOOK THIS HOTEL!! you never know what they will do to ask you to pay!

Room Tip: Do not book this hotel.
