We stayed in this hotel because we arrived quite late in Phuket city (after a long bus ride) and did not want to go to a beach straightly. The old name of the hotel is 'XVI' and is listed in the Lonely Planet travelguide.
I have contacted the hotel from the busstation per phone and was offered a room for 1500Baht without breakfast (the hotel was almost booked up). After a little bit of bargaining we got a room for 1300Baht breakfast included.
While checking in at the lobby things have changed. The price still was 1300Baht but no breakfast included and an extra 200B for breakfast...... I was to tired to leave.
The rooms: I would call them 'boutique-style' but run down already. Our small room had no windows and was on the ground level (don't go there if you are a claustrophobic!) The adjoining room was identical. As an alternative there should be some rooms with windows to the road, but the woman at the lobby told us, that it is too loud to sleep there.
The room has not been cleaned up properly, in the shower has been some mold, dust in every corner.
Breakfast was ok, but was no compensation for the other problems.
