Liked: Excellent hotel. 10 / 10 for cleanliness. Room as everything we needed and far surpassed what we would expect for the price. Compliment ry water in the fridge. Free but somewhat small breakfast, whist other not-so-nice hotels would charge extra for. Nice and quiet so easy to relax and sleep.

Disliked: Not near to beeches but ideal if you want to stay in Phuket City.

Liked: Efficient check-in, friendly staff. Clean and spacious rooms and with a huge bed. Complimentary mineral water along with tea and coffee in the lobby was a nice touch.

Disliked: Food at breakfast could have been better. We were expecting more than slices of bread and jam.

Liked: Away from the "touristy" part of Phuket Town. Loved wandering the streets nearby and seeing locals going about their business rather than tourists looking for souvenirs. Set back from a busy road, it was quiet at night for sleeping with very little traffic noise. Staff were so friendly and helpful. Loved coming back to the room each afternoon to see what fantastic shape the clean towels had been left in - swans, shells, fans!

Disliked: Very little really - one night there was a rip in the sheets on the edge but they were clean and fresh.

Liked: The room was very big, airy and comfy. We like the fact that they cleaned the rooms everyday and were also quite helpful in giving directions and calling for car rentals. There is one Muslim stall and another Muslim restaurant within walking distance.

Disliked: It's quite far from Patong. About 20 minutes drive so was not that convenient for us. It's located in the quite part of the town so if you're looking for fun, this is not the place.

Liked: This was an amazing value! It is very clean and the staff is very helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Disliked: It's not exactly in a central location and it costs a good bit of money to get around to the main beaches, but it's not too bad.

Liked: We stayed 1 night here in transit from the airport to ferry port. This is by far the best value for money we got on our 5 month tour of SE Asia. Its location is not really close to the touristy area or many restaurants, but its perfect for a short convenient stay. Huge comfy rooms with TV and simple free breakfast made it a great stopover.

Liked: It is such good value for money, like a top hotel but not having to pay the price. Unfortunately only got to stay one night as moving on, but it was so clean and modern. Good security too, you need a key to get up to the rooms.

Liked: Really great hotel rooms for hostel/backpacker prices. Super nice bathrooms that were en suite, and a great place to sort of pamper yourself after backpacking through hostels for a while, but still pay hostel prices. There are some great street-side places to eat nearby, and you can get a real glimpse into how the locals actually live by just walking around the area. It's not too far off from the main part of town.

Disliked: Fairly expensive cab ride to get to the airport, would recommend organizing something in advance. If you're looking for a fun/party place, this is definitely too far off to suit your needs, but if you want a nice place to relax and recover from the craziness on your way to the other islands or to the mainland, I'd definitely recommend it.

Liked: This property was excellent and an absolute steal for the price we paid. The accomodation really was luxurious. The staff were amazingly helpful, unfortunately we arrived having had some items stolen from us on the way from Bangkok to Phuket, we were taken to the tourist police and the manager translated for us, it was fantastic service.

Disliked: The location could be better, especially when you walk from the town centre with heavy backpacks, ikts probably a good 30 minute walk from town. However, there is a local bus which runs from the hotel to town, its convenient and costs 10 baht one way. The quality of accomodation more than makes up for this problem though.

Liked: Nice and clean place. Unbelievable rooms for the price. Lovely stuff, though the english is rather basic. Sayed here two times and enjoyed it very much. The rooms were huge and the bath was very clean. The towel where assembled to build two swans, Incredible!

Disliked: It is not in the central of phuket, but a 20 baht ride with the tuktuk... The stuff is not good at english at all, but very friendly and nice.
