We stayed here after traveling from Koh Lanta to Phuket. Good place near the pier. I wouldn't stay here for more than 1 night though, there isn't much for tourists to see.

The rooms are great, good beds, nice bedroom and a lot of television channels. Only one with Belgian TV during our entire Thailand trip. The price is cheap, so value is great.

The only negative point is the staff and the service. Their English really is terrible. It took me over half an hour to explain that we had a reservation done by a traveling agency and that the traveling agency already sent them the voucher a few hours earlier (because they forgot to send it to us earlier). A call to them to arrange a pickup at the bus station failed because they didn't understand me. A call from our room to arrange a wakeup call in the morning also failed, altough it was answered by an 'Ok, yes sir.'. Luckily I saw it coming and used my own cell phone as backup.

We enjoyed staying local while in Phuket. The hotel was livable and reasonable for our long stay in Phuket. It was nice having the American Breakfast every day. The staff and locals were friendly. Internet was a bit over-priced at 30 baht for 30 min, when it's 20 baht for 1 hr right around the corner. It's no frills and if you don't mind smoking clients in the hallway, it's a good place to stay central.

Ideal for solo travellers. Walking distance to Ocean Plaza, Robinson, and sontew bus station. My room charge was THB800, value for money hotel. Hot shower available, housekiiping service provided daily, hot shower, aircon....budget accommodation, no complaints. Well-known kaomangai (chicken rice) shop on 100m away. Easy to take motorcy (motor bike taxi) but be careful to use at night. Unlike Patong beach, night time is very quiet.

Good hotel, nothing to complain about. The only thing that left a bad taste in our mouths was the "travel agency" of the hotel. Do not use it if you don't have to. They will rip you off! Which you are probably used to in Thailand anyway but you would expect a hotel to be a bit more honest to their guests....

We stayed here for one night because we missed the boat to Kho Phi Phi. The room was clean, but gave us a very gross feeling. The blanket has probably been there since 1949 and when we asked for a different one they wanted to charge us. The hotel was cheap, so I can't complain too much, but it was pretty gross. The bathroom really needed so updating. It smelled really bad. Thankfully the sheets appeared clean. It was close to some stores and a theatre, but not really what you expect when you go to Phuket. I wouldn't recommend this hotel and certainly not this location if you plan to stay for more than one night.
