Very good Hotel with professional staff and near to beach for going James Bond and phi phi island but far from Patong beach. But you can get tuk tuk or bike. Breakfast was tasty and ambience was very attractive.

The Hotel is very charming and well decorated. We stayed in suit rooms which was smaller than I expected but still nice. The Lobby is quite cheerful to spend time. Breakfast is mostly Thai food but they serve muesli or continental breakfast as a la carte. The Location is right in center of the old Town and also very charming...

We stayed at the on on hotel for 3 nights at the start of our holiday and found it to be clean and tidy with very helpful staff . The rooms are not huge and as its in the centre of the old town the views are obviously not great. But it did make a good base to explore. The...

I recently stayed as a solo traveler in the room where parts of the movie "The Beach" were shot. Don't worry though--it's been upgraded since then. The whole hotel is full of beautiful original touches--I found the small patio/balcony very nice and surprisingly cool at the end of a long day, and the original flooring beautifully worn and smooth on...

I upgraded and stayed in the delux suite for two nights. I feel that the hotel looks on the surface beautiful with quirky character. Unfortunately the bedroom didn't have the delux feel it was rather small. This would have been okay but my biggest concern was the thin walls. I could hear everything my neighbours were watching on television. The...

This is a gem in Phuket's old town, with tasteful renovations, great service, and comfortable rooms. The hotel is a beautiful building, and we enjoyed our time there. The staff is very friendly, and took care of everything we needed, including bookings for airport transfers, dinner reservations and entertainment. The one minus is the breakfast, which was disappointing, but this...

We stayed here for eight nights at the beginning of February Firstly I have to say we normally stay in 4/5 star accommodation so any negatives may be due to expecting too much Hotel oozes character and certainly different to anything we have ever tried before. There are plenty open areas to sit and read with the use of ceiling...

Superb and nicely renovated hotel in the heart of Phuket. It was the first hotel opened and served as a location for the movie "the Beach" with Leonardo Dicaprio. The rooms are superb for a reasonable price. You have suits, standard rooms and dormitories for back packers. The breakfast is ok. I would recommend thos hotel to everyone because it...

I stayed at the hostel section back in January and didn't expect much. The stay has complemented my memorable trip with its beautiful decoration, cleanliness (especially in the bathroom and shower), super duper location, friendliness and its uniqueness and charming of the history of the place . I felt like staying home back in the old days and without too...
