Where to stay in Phuket Town?


There are many small hotels in Phuket Town, including a few known brands, and the old town is packed with guesthouses set in renovated Sino-Portuguese shophouses. The old town has become a selfie playground, and most visitors prefer to stay in the historical area, making it easy to enjoy the architecture, the local restaurants and the many cafes.

The geography of Phuket Town

Phuket town could be divided into three or even four areas, which will become an important factor when looking for the right hotel. One important fact to remember is that Phuket town is 14 km away from the beautiful beaches you see on social media: all the famous beaches are on the west coast, but the city is on the east coast.

  1. The old historical streets of Phuket Town are the most beautiful and fun to explore, but you will mostly find tiny guesthouses around the famous Thalang Road, Dibuk and Phang Nga Roads.
  2. The outskirt of the old town have bigger hotels, and they are at a decent walking distance from the historical centre.
  3. The close suburb of Phuket City. There are a few hotels around, but you will need a ride to go downtown.
  4. The far outskirts are tempting when you check your usual hotel booking website, but you will be surprised how far these can be from downtown!

The Memory at On On Hotel

The Memory at On On Hotel in Phuket Town

The Memory at On On Hotel is undoubtedly the most iconic and best-known heritage hotel on Phuket Island for a few reasons. Built in 1927 and called Un Un Hotel at the time, the hotel possesses a strong Sino-Portuguese personality in a very central location on Phang Nga Road, the heart of old Phuket Town. The renovation was done extremely well, and what was once that cheap backpacker hotel featured in the movie The Beach with Leonardo DiCaprio is now a trendy hotel. The location on Phang Nga Road is very convenient for exploring all the old streets of Phuket.

Sound Gallery House

Sound Gallery House in Phuket Town

There are some lovely old Sino-Portuguese mansions around Phuket Town; sadly, some of them have been left to crumble for unknown reasons. In early 2019, one such 80 years old mansion was restored and converted into a new hotel called Sound Gallery House.

Sound Gallery offers a mix of private rooms and dormitories and an elegant lobby area with a grand piano, keeping with the music theme. It’s a bit of a distance to the central downtown area of Phuket Town, but the historical sights of the Baan Chinpracha mansion and Thai Hua Museum are less than a 10-minute walk away.

Location: Phuket Town outskirts

Little Nyonya Hotel

Little Nyonya Hotel

Set just southwest of Phuket Town, Little Nyonya is a charming 43-room retreat built by a local family with a long history in Phuket. While it has modern facilities, the hotel features classic Sino-colonial architecture with grand archways, elaborate tiled flooring and intricate carved wooden doors. The building is wrapped around a large swimming pool and terrace, and its lobby and dining areas are open and airy.
