I arrived to Phuket Feb.4th, 2013 and have been living at the wonderful Anchan Boutique Hotel since then (about 2 months now). This is my 2nd time to Thailand (June '12 was last visit) so I consider myself to be a some-what informed traveler with all things related to Phuket. The hotel is brand new and is located on Soi Tae'ed where Phuket Top Team, Tiger Muay Thai and Dragon MT gyms are located. It's also not far from Manop Muay Thai Gym (by Phuket Zoo) which is where I'm actually training.
Before I arrived (from NYC), I was communicating with the friendly English speaking owners & staff to book a room. Emails were answered in a timely-manner and everything worked out with no mis-understandings. The management is actually an asset to the hotel as they are more than willing to help you out...when I was sick, one of the ladies (Noie) even bought me fruits and checked up on me (thank you!).
My spacious 1-bedroom is located on the top floor with a nice view over-looking the pool towards the main road. Everything about this place is modern (felt like NYC)...from the bright-colored walls, to the artwork and TV/ refrigerator/furniture & bathroom. My jaw dropped the first day I walked in as this place was so stunning and actually felt a bit guilty for allowing myself to live in such luxury, haha.
One thing that stands out among other hotels located on this road is at night, there is actually a security guard in the lobby to make sure no-thing shady goes on, ie. theft/robberies as these types of things have unfortunately happened in the past. You also need a key-card to get into the building after passing him. Def a plus for the ladies.
The street also has plenty of food options - Muay Thai House, Jajas, My Restaurant (right downstairs) and Family/Bungalow (behind the hotel) are all within walking distance and are in my daily rotation of places to eat affordable, delicious food.
When I first got here, the wifi/internet had a few issues...but the management quickly got this sorted out and haven't had an issue since then. They def made this a priority. :)
