Lovely hotel and service with a smile
This is a really nice hotel: rooms not to big but looking very nice! People so available for everything you need.
This is located in the village, not close to the beaches.

Great location but small rooms
Location is good, near the market.market have many thing to buy.Also the price is lower than patong.the staffs are very nice. But the breakfast is unsatisfy. And there are no elevator, It is very inconvenience for people. There are many motor outside, and the windows is not sound-proof. So it is nosiy.

Value hotel beside a market with central location
Central location, near bus stop, market and other walking locations
great value for travellers to stay in a comfortable room. the cost is simply unbelievable though there is no fancy breakfast or lift to bring you up and down the hotel. the room has a view facing the market or multi storey car park where you may catch a glimpse of thai kids have a great game of fotsal. lcd tv with many viewing channels. would give this a great thumbs up if bath tub is inclusive.

Lovely hotel but small room
friendly and helpful staff
It is easy to access the hotel, the staff is friendly and responsible. Since I am alone travelling so I do not care much about the facilities and hence basics are my most concern. The room is clean and tidy, so I would encourage solo traveller to stay. It is a safe place to stay too.

Simple hotel good services but poor breakfast
The hotel has a very good location in the heart of phuket. The service is great the owner speaks good english the room are clean and of good size. It is a bit noisy at times as close to big parking of some kind. Prices are very goood for the quality but one major problem was the breakfasst absolutely cold and serve in a lunch box !

Stayed here for 2 nights before heading south in Thailand. The hotel is not really near anything in Phuket, and in my opinion, located kind of in the middle of nothing. The hotel itself is great. New rooms, new decor, great bathrooms, comfortable beds, and a wonderful staff. Breakfest is great, but probably won't fill you up. There are some good restaurants down the road about 5 minutes. Overall, the hotel is very nice and we would stay here again. Also, the wifi is excellent in the rooms.

Do not stay here if you want to sleep at night
The next building to this hotel is extremely loud from around 1am to 6am. It is a temple/car park of some sort. There is absolutely no sound proof on the window, so you will here every tuk tuk passing by with their loud exhaust noises. Do not pay additional money for the "breakfast" as it is just a stale fried egg, wet toasts and some fried sausages in a box. No hot water in the shower, maybe warm water at best. The front entrance of the hotel stinks as there are very much trash and stinking dirty water sitting there.... VERY disappointing even with the cheap price.
Ang Seafood (google it) is very local, very amazing sea food restaurant. Get the red snapper and fried with chili sauce. You will thank me. Tom Yom soup is fantastic at this place as well, my mouth is getting watery just thinking about the amazing food here. This place is a walking distance (10-15 walk max), do not listen to the staff of the hotel telling you to take the tuk tuk or motorcycle for 200-300 bhat.

5 A number of food stalls and local restaurant within walking distance
1 NO elevator ! Not suitable for the elderly who have problem walking up the stairs, especially if you are on a higher floor.
2 You get a full view into the market place's parking lot from your bedroom window. Have to keep the drapes closed on most occasions for your privacy
Hotel front counter staff can help you arrange for any sightseeing trips around Phuket and to the outer islands

Good rooms, but noisy market nearby
Their motto doesn't lie: it's really modern, cheap and convenient
One of the reasons we booked Chinotel was that we had a night flight and wanted to spend a night before taking a morning bus to Krabi. The old bus terminal, though, that served krabi routes and that was so near to Chinotel, has been left with some local destinations and we still had to hire a taxi (200 baht) to go to new bus terminal. So if location is your point, beware. Meanwhile phuket old town is a nice place to have a walk: with shophouses and even some interesting mansions
Anyway, for a post-flight sleep this is a good option. Plain, but new and well maintained by a trio of a trustworthy Thai gentleman, a young ladyboy and a lovely girl doing the cleaning.
The most annoying thing, though, is a market nearby. I mean this is a great market in fact, but it is a bit smelly in the night (not in the room, but when you go out for a cigarette, you can feel it: rotten bananas and fishy fish).
The breakfast in a box is a mixture of very cheap ham, sausage and jams. I could only manage toast and a fried egg.
Hotel Feature Tip:
Wi-fi is free, but not working great throughout the hotel
