oh, the roosters downstairs!
the quietness off the town, ok pool,
it was so difficult to find. I took a local bus from kamala beach to Phuket town and got off in somewhere I wasnt sure about. I knew that the apartment is on Anun Phuket road. so I followed my map walking all the way from the center of town to the apartment. im not good at directions so I got lost so many times. my friend took a taxi (750baht) from the airport and the taxi driver had a very hard time finding it. the room looks newly furnished and clean. but it gets very stuffy when you get back in the evening. the roosters crow early in the morning and all day till 10 at night. so annoying. ONE MORE annoying thing–the dogs. dogs everywhere. especially when its getting dark. they sleep during the day and come out and bark at us all the time. they got very close to us and we were so scared. fortunately I found locals to help. one time in the evening there were 4 or5 dogs barking at us crazily. the more you look at them the crazier they get. so just keep calm and dont have eye contact with them. it seemed only my friend and I were walking. everyone rides a motorbike or a car. so I guess if you drive the dogs wont bother you.

Great location and amazing rooms
Great value for money, location, cleanliness
Stayed there for it's location near the ferry. The room was super cheap so I was really surprised to get a comfort, big and clean room. The guy even gave us a quick lift to the nearest 7Eleven as it was very late when we arrived. Great choice!

aruna seavuew
staff, pool, service
Arun seaview is cool and quiet place to stay for a couple of days and to launch the main trip for individual travellers. It is located far from main beaches and resorts of Phuket, but there's no any problems if you rent any vehicle. And special thanks to the staff of the hotel (especially to the girl on reception) they were very helpful and patient.

Very clean facilities slightly out of the way
The best things: the cleanliness of the room and the new facilities (clearly newly renovated), the swimming pool and the helpful staff.
We had a reservation at another hotel in Phuket but turned up 2 days early so booked into here as it was cheap. We were positively surprised. The rooms have been newly renovated an I would say nearly pristinely clean. The pool area was also clean but missing a few sun beds. The hotel is a bit out of the way of phuket old town 100 bt in a taxi.

Clean and value for money
Clean, comfy and relaxing pool
The hotel is really clean. Stuff is so friendly and very helpfull. You can rent a motorbike there. Maybe is not close to the good beach but you can go by motorbike. Is good value for money and is so relaxing and safe

Remote farm hotel
Pool, animals, ferry shuttle
We stayed for 1 night to get an early ferry the next morning. This hotel is way off the beaten track and not walk able to any food locations. The wifi didnt work f

Basic but comfortable rooms, clean
Close to pier, spacious room, clean
We only stayed here 1 night on our way to the pier for the ferry next day. Hotel was difficult to find for the taxi drivers, maybe some signs from the mainroad would be helpful? Coming from Myanmar with absolutely no value for money this room was great! Spacious, clean and comfortable for a fair price $14 fan room. If you would stay longer I would advise AC because of the heat. No breakfast but we knew that and left early anyway. Staff helped us out to find some food after arriving late and even took us for free to the night market which I thought was very friendly! Helped us arrange ferry tickets as wel for next day. 1000 baht ferry to Koh Lanta price at pier was the same and they brought us to the pier so would recommend to buy at hotel for convenience. Only thing is that ferry wasn't going directly to Koh Lanta as hotel staff kind of implied but we had to change boat in Phi Phi which wasn't a problem because the ferry to Lanta waited for the little late ferry coming from Phuket to Phi Phi. The hotel has a nice pool as wel but we didn't got time to use

Jacuzzi in the balcony :)
Jacuzzi on the balcony, infinity pools, location
We loved it. The price was definitely worth it. The infinity pools were nice as well and if the weather is nice you can view the sun set (or was it sunrise? :D forgot we wnt there on June). Breakfast was oriental enough choices and variation, staff were friendly and accomodating. The interiors were not finished (probably intentional?) so you can see walls were not painted in and only the cement color was showing. But it didn't bother us and it can be considered part of it's charm. Overall I would definitely like to stay here again, it's also walking distance to the beaches and restos and in between karon and patong so this place is accessible.
