        The Old Phuket - Pool Access Room”

        Room - huge; much space even with the kingsize bed and day bed. The hotel provides most of the toiletries except for toothbrushes and toothpastes so bring your own or you can get them easily from nearby convenience shops. Pool - only 1 in the resort which you can jump right into from your patio. Small but good enough for leisure swimming. We brought along our big-ass float. Pool deck great for sunbathing. Staff - friendly and helpful :) Shuttle - free shuttle to Patong, Sunday Market and 1 other place on selected days and fixed timing. Check out the schedule at the lobby. Breakfast - ok though limited variety. Location - great. beach right across the street. great massage place next door. number of restaurants, massage parlours and convenience stores at the front and back of the hotel. We love love love our stay here! Go Karon to chill and enjoy the sun. Go Patong if you want shopping, nightlife and crowds.

        This was my second time at this hotel , the first time was amazing, However this time the Dinning Room Manager and staff were arrogant and Cold, we requested that Two tables be set together for the group, they refused to accomadate us, I ended up pulling tables together on my own. The rest of the Dinning Room Staff soon showed where their alliance was, and also decided to treat the group with a cold Shoulder . I Was Very disappointed .

        Nice hotel, good location, happy staff”

        We stayed here for 1 night and upon arrival were greeted with a welcome drink, we were also upgraded to a nicer room for free which was a nice surprise! We were shown to our room which was located close to the back of the hotel, with a small front garden area with seating, the room itself was spacious and well stocked with shoes, robes and water. The bathroom was also spacious with an outside shower. The only problem we found was it smelled after we used it which was a shame! The breakfast was nice, we checked out each pool area, the bigger one located inside the main hotel area was nice, beer from the pool bar was fairly priced and there were plenty of places to sit. The other pool area located close to the breakfast area was busier and smaller but seemed to be more appealing! (we didn't get a seat here!) the security guard was so lovely and always wanted a chat. walking out the back towards Karon beach there were plenty of places to eat and the beach was pleasant. Would stay again

        Mouldy, musty A/C system ”

        The Old Phuket is in a good location central Karon Beach. Staff were friendly and obliging and breakfast included was good. Unfortunately the Air Conditioners are in serious need of servicing and you can’t adjust the temperature controls. We were told they were preset at 25deg Celsius for the entire resort. More like 20deg in our experience. I pulled A/C filters out and full of fluff & dust. Engineer replaced. We stayed in a swim out pool room in the ‘new’ serene wing. Only thing I can say is the OLD Phuket lives up to it’s name. And as many other Ppl reviewed, the beds are rock hard. We left 2 days early on a 9 night booking. Do yourself a favour and look elsewhere.

        Stayed here for 6nights,it was excellent. The rooms were large, clean and better than expected.the location was right across from the beach, very close to good restaurants,walking distant to market.the main pool was always clean with enough chairs and the poolside pool food was good. The breakfast was fresh,many choices ,no complaints. We had one hiccup with our room and this was handled by Mr muek very well.He really tried his best to solve the situation which we did appreciate. we would definitely recommend this hotel and answer any questions you might have.

        Not for Families”

        If you're going with a family beware. They'll slug you for an extra room even though you could fit an extra head in there easily. Unfair. I had to book an additional room, and I told them I can't leave my children in a separate room unsupervised. We kept them with us anyway, and spent on an additional room. No flexibility at all. Very sad. Left after one night.

        You can't see the beach or ocean from the hotel. It is so dissapointing. Staff is bad. They can ignore you even you asked order politely. Wrong booking and had to spent an hour or more to settle after long distance travel from airport (It is very far from the airport (1.5 hours). My kids were so unhappy. Please be careful if you want to choose this hotel. I am so dissapointed.

        A very good choice of hotel in Karon. Close to beach and shops. Smiling, friendly staff. Due to water damage to our originally booked room we had to stay one night at another hotel. This was handled in a very friendly manner by the hotel manager. When we returned the day after we were upgraded to the pool access room which was great! Free Wi-Fi in our room worked great! Breakfast very good.

        Great location, close to the beach and to a street full of good restaurants (such as those belonging to the own hotel) and services (e.g. massage places, tourist agency). I recommend choosing a room at Sino Wing, where rooms are spatious with colonial-like but functional furniture and great bathroom and shower located in a private patio (this is the best shower I have ever had!). It is only one minute from the swimming pool. The breakfast options are great.

        The resort has friendly staff, very good facilities and the rooms and pools are excellent. Due to the Wet season I got a good rate which is less than half of the peak season. I think too pricey in the peak season.

        Location, room.

        I liked the Old Phuket on the whole. However, one of the male receptionists was rather rude though perhaps he did not mean to be. We asked what time checkout was and was asked to look on the back of our key card for the information. The hotel may be rather affordable, but requires you to pay for a late checkout, even if it's just a couple hours. We paid for in-room Wifi, but it didn't work out for our laptops. Basic amenities such as toothbrushes were also not provided, not even upon request.

        Fun , Refreshing and Relaxing stay !”

        Pool Access, Proximity to the lovely Karon beach and close to chic dining places

        We had a great time at the Pool Access room. Totally enjoyed waking up and just falling into the large Pool! The room was spacious, the bathrooms were large with a big shower area and a separate bath tub. Massage parlours and restaurants were situated just outside the hotel. The beach was fantastic! It was just a short 5 minutes walk away and they had jet skis and para sailing activities. The night market was just around the corner and the famous sunset view points at Kata and Promthep Cape are about 30 to 45 mins away by car. The breakfast could have had more varieties and wifi cost 200 baht per day in room. There is free wifi in the lobby area if you are not a heavy user. Overall, the stay at the hotel was worth it.
