The staff in charge is really friendly. They let me use their bike for free and recomend some good places or tours. Phuket town is not the best place to stay in the island, but still I will recomend this place.

We booked and pre-paid for a taxi to the airport on the morning we were leaving. We came to reception to find no one there and no taxi. after waiting for 45 minutes... More

Machima House is great for a lot of reasons: the price (500-600 baht/night for a double w/ air-con and ensuite bathroom), the location (w/in walking distance of a lot of eateries and the night market), the rooms (clean, large, air-con), the bathrooms (separated shower from toilet area, hot (HOT!) water from the shower), and the staff, when available, is friendly....

The Old Daily provides everything you expect for the cheap price and more! The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean and the bed is comfortable. It felt as if they had recently installed brand new furniture into the rooms and the air con units are nearly new and work perfectly (which isnt true of all budget places in Thailand!) We... More
