We stayed 1 night at Dara hotel. we arrived already quite late for check-in (10pm). We got a room which smell like smoke so we turned on a fan and tried to get rid of the smell which didn't help. We asked the reception for air purifier but got send a quite rude house keeper who just barged in and spray our room with some even smellier spray which made the room stinkier. In the end we need to ask to switch room but got told that they were fully booked. The receptionist came up to check on the room and probably could smell the smoke+spray too so he agreed to switch room for us (two room next door when said un avail before?). We really didn't know how to feel about the situation but we were too tired to argue so we just switched room and went to bed and check-out early the next day. We will probably stay here again since it's in pretty prime location and the price was good but wouldn't recommend for anyone looking for good service.

We stayed at Dara hotel for just over a week and were very happy with the amazing customer service (especially from Tita and Tiew!). I will say that the hotel is quite far from beaches, which we didn't mind as we had a bike and could drive to any of the beaches in anywhere from 30-45 mins. If you stay here, definitely check out Central Phuket! Go to the Shack for a smoothie bowl for breakfast... so delicious! Overall great experience. I will also just say that laundry was a little more expensive than we had expected, and it's cheaper to hail cabs than to call them from the hotel. ALSO! Go to Blue Elephant for dinner, quite pricey but the best food I've ever had in my life.

This was good hotel, not great not bad, just good. They have repetitive staff so you come to know faces with even a short amount of time there which is a really nice. However this hotel caters a lot to Chinese tourist or tour groups who are very loud. The room was good and comfortable and a great non smoking room. The pool was well maintained and the food was good. We added breakfast on when we got there for approximately $30 AUD for two people which is a good price, we also took advantage of the room service, however they would forget to collect plates when the room was tidied. Overall a pleasant stay at a good price.

Perfect location opposite to Central Festival Phuket Foresta. Good facilities pool, fitness, restaurant and bar. Spacious room with balcony. A/C is not very good in room 1401 but the hot water and water pressure is fine. Breakfast is OK! Staff are helpful and friendly.

We were here in October & had a great time! Near Central so we could walk over & see some amazing foods & tried out Restaurants. Great location & very friendly staff. I had left my Jewellery in a bedroom drawer when we left & when we contacted the Dara to see whether they had found it they said YES!!! I offered to pay the postage & once this was organised, it was returned to me by post & arrived after only 4 days!!! Thank you very much Dara Hotel.

This is a lovely hotel, big room, great pool, great breakfast. The bar closes at 10pm, but there’s a lovely pub over the road - so no problem. If you want to shop, you can walk to Central and shop away with all of the brands and great food Enjoy!
