My wife and I stayed at pier 42 in jan, we live in Samui, so we went to Phuket for the weekend.
Pier42 welcomed. With smiling staff and willing to help us with questions. The rooms are very nice and clean, spaceous. Swimming pool is small but we went for scuba diving. They have a dive school attached to the hotel and it's only seconds away from the pier for all the boats leaving for day trips. Very highly recommended hotel definitely come back to stay.
