Smart and classy

Phuket is so big, we've split it up into areas, select one of the below for detailed accommodation and food listings in that area. Sights and general overviews for Phuket as a whole can be found via the icons above. Don't know where to start? Read an overview of Phuket's different areas.
This very smart addition to Phuket's boutique backpacker scene had only been open a few months when we wandered through in August 2011, and it impresses.
A converted shophouse, 99 Old Town has a couple of floors of immaculate (and we mean immaculate) and cleverly designed, albeit compact, rooms. While if anything perhaps one less room would have given everyone a bit more space, they've done a good job fitting this many rooms in. Rooms are well fitted out with crisp sheets, minibar, air-con, hot water showers and free WiFi throughout. Cool wooden floors underfoot and a ground floor kitchenette out back (with a water feature which for a moment we thought was a pool!) Downstairs is a large common area that it seems like they're still deciding just what to do with. As a bit of trivia this was originally the very first electronics store to open in Phuket Town.
