Great central location in Karon

Built to replicate the architecture which can still be found around old Phuket town, The Old Phuket offers architectural fusion between old and new. You get the best of both worlds when it comes to stylish accommodation. Choose between The Sino wing, which is influenced by 19th century Sino-Portuguese, and the Serene Wing which is contemporary and immaculately designed. Whichever wing you choose, your room will be furnished with luxurious amenities, a spacious private balcony and a bed made up of soft linens.

The sands of Karon Beach are just in front of the hotel, and you are just steps away from the many restaurants and shops of the area. However, if you would rather not leave the resort – then you have the choice of seven bars and restaurants ranging from authentic Italian cuisine to local Thai fayre.

  • Great location in Karon Beach
  • Family rooms
  • Choice of traditional or contemporary accommodation
  • Wide range of dining options

Overall pretty good

Aberdeen, United Kingdom

Overall our stay was very good. There were little areas that could use some work/alterations but nothing that would stop me from returning to the hotel. We emailed a few months in advance to see if we could upgrade our room to a private jacuzzi room. We were given this free of charge which was excellent. The room was nice enough and clean. It could probably do with a bit of an update with paint etc but nothing you would worry about while on holiday. There is an outside shower in a private courtyard. I personally loved this however I was fully aware that people from the balconies behind could definitely see into the shower. Unlucky for them watching! The shower is partially covered and I believe some of the other rooms have the showers more enclosed but I'm sure if this was an issue the staff could assist. They were happy to help every time we spoke to them. Also the bath in the bedroom had a shower attached if you were a bit bashful. The rooms come with mini bar (reasonably priced), tea and coffee facilities, complimentary water and towels. Breakfast is provided and this for me was a bit of a let down. Despite finishing at 10:30am staff had a lot of the breakfast packed away by quarter past. Also trying to get a cup of coffee from the staff who were huddled in the corner was sometimes a challenge. There wasn't a huge selection of breakfast items. Lots of salad and Thai style breakfast. That being said there was always fruit, cereal, toast and the egg station. We only used the pool on the 3rd floor which was small and clean. Never used the second pool area however when we had a walk around it also looked very clean. A couple of days the cleaner never provided pool towels however we always travel with our own so it wasn't really an issue, when we advised the front desk towels were sent immediately. This was good and we appreciated their speedy response. The hotel provides a shuttle bus service to some of the local attractions/shopping areas. This needs needs to be booked in advance to ensure a space however for us this was a great benefit and also was free. The area surrounding the hotel has a number of restuarants, bars, massage parlours, tailors and shops. We would highly recommend going to Karssons Steakhouse and also Ging - Thai food. Both have excellent, friendly staff and food/drink with very competitive prices. All in all for 10 days we had a great time and would definitely stay in the area and possibly the hotel depending on deals available.
