The Old Phuket

Traveller (1837)
Room & Suite (734)
Pool & Beach (262)


Ideally located in a tranquil yet central spot in Karon Beach. This intriguing Sino-Portuguese style design resort evokes memories of 19th century Southeast Asia and was built as a replica of the architecture that still remains in the old sections of the capital Phuket Town. Rooms are split between the modern Serene Wing and the traditional Sino Wing. Perfect for singles, couples and families alike.

Wow! What an amazing two week holiday I’ve had here! Thailand is beautiful and this hotel is a must. Breakfast was really good and lots to choose from, there was an egg station where you could choose what egg you wanted which includes an omelette which is amazing! Breakfast also

Stayed here for a week with a swim up room, it was beautiful dark furniture with crisp white linen with a splash on red for cushions and throw. The floor and walls are all white with a bathroom that is the length of the room, you walk through the shower to get to the sunken

Stayed for 3 nights & was upgraded on arrival to a lovely jacuzzi room. The hotel is nice enough although definitely 3-4* & no more. The breakfast is really not good at all as the selection is extremely limited therefore the lady at the egg counter is totally overwhelmed with a

Many thanks for taking time to add a review of your stay at The Old Phuket. We take note of your valuable comments regarding breakfast and will see how we can try to improve the process. It's always quite difficult to estimate what time guests will have their breakfast, especially in the high season when we tend to run full most days. We do have 2 pools but again sometimes there can be a sudden influx of guests. Your points are very useful and something we will look into deeper. Hope to welcome you back to The Old Phuket in the very near future. The management

This was our third visit to The Old Phuket after a 5 year gap. We upgraded to the swim up room in the Serene Wing prior to arrival and it was lovely to have pool access straight from the room. House Keeping were very good and the rooms are spacious and clean. The only negative

Upon arrival at the Old Phuket on our first night in Thailand we were told that a burst water pipe meant that our room was out of action so we'd have to be moved to a different hotel. I'm unsure if this was actually the case - we suspected that they'd perhaps overbooked the

Many thanks for taking time to add a review of your stay at The Old Phuket. We do apologise for the inconvenience caused by the last-minute room maintenance problem, that meant you had to move to another hotel. Unfortunately, as it's the high season here in Phuket, we simply did not have another room available to offer. This would have certainly been the preferred option for all concerned. We had hoped that the alternative hotel provided on the 1st night, the room upgrade to the Serene Wing and meal vouchers would help to compensate the frustrating room issue on arrival. Regarding the meal voucher that was not used, this was only valid for the duration of your stay but I am sure we would have accepted this (as a special case) if given prior warning in advance. Apologies here but the restaurant team needed authority from the management team to accept this outside of the terms shown on the voucher. Please do come back and try us again, as we really want you to have happy memories of The Old Phuket. Hope to see you in Phuket soon. The Management

Hi. Karon Beach is the next beach from Patong where there is a shopping mall called Jungceylon with cinema and ten pin bowling. Karon area is a calmer location but close to the action.

My apologies 10/3/19.
I would suggest emailing the hotel directly. We were transferring from another part of Thailand so arrived at the allocated check in time of 2pm but had seen other people waiting for their rooms to become available.

"swim up pool was a great bonus as it has a patio area just for your room with chairs"
"The Serene wing overlooking the pool with a view of Big Buddha."
"Serene wing rooms seems nicer than the Sino Wing."
"We stayed on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool. No noises and very good air con! More private than ground floor rooms."
"First floor rooms have a patio that leads directly to the pool."
