Though the building looks old from the outside, the room is quite nice. It was clean and tidy. Love the very big windows of my corner room. Gym is ok, pretty old equipment but just enough for good workout. And you can exercise shirtless there. Sauna area is pretty small, but they have everything you need included steam, sauna room...

We stayed there for three nights Thanksgiving week and couldn't be happier. We opted for a suite since the price was still a fraction of what we would pay for a room in the states, and were very happy with everything. I'm not sure why people have given this place bad reviews unless they are comparing it to American standards,... More

These guys were so helpful to us. Anytime we needed a driver for sightseeing or other, they lined up right away. The place is clean and very reasonably priced. They have free breakfast. Any other time, you can purchase food off the menu for very cheap. They have a nice bar area. The property also has a workout facility and... More

Not what I expected, did not spend much time in the room as it was drab, blah zero decor. Bathroom dirty, and bed linen seemed clean but looked well used. I would not stay here again. Staff is good, but knowledge of English is very very limited so very hard to get information.

Dear Mr. N, I am sorry to learn you were not fully satisfied about your room, apparently due to a lack of decoration in your opinion.

Rooms serve a purpose and furnished adequately and appropriately. No problems with guests and apart from ground floor clothing optional. Smoking allowed, clean and comfortable. There are lockers to use at the sauna and a roof terrace for sun baking.

I'm not sure how many people have been here. Is horrible dirty, smelly and the sauna's swimming pool is not clean at all. You can see the water green instead clear. Never visit this place again. Everything broken. I wonder how people stay here.

I don't know where these other reports of excellence came from. I booked thru Expedia and honestly I didn't expect much for a $12 room. I checked out their website and it seemed decent enough so booked it. Knowing that this is Phuket 's low season and the recent bomb blast nearby might have contributed to the discounted rate. It...
