Ming Shou Boutique House

Set in a traditional Sino-Portuguese shophouse with an ornate golden entrance, Ming Shou Boutique House is an eye-catching sight along the Old Town’s Krabi Road in Phuket Town.


Rooms are a bit more stylish than their price might suggest.

Beyond its flashy frontage, a couple of things make Ming Shou an appealing place for budget travellers. The price is right: 780 baht any time of year for a bright, clean room spruced up with some colourful accents, air-con, private bathroom with hot water shower, WiFi and a small TV.

The rooms are similar in size and design, some with king-sized beds and others with twins. A larger triple room with jewel-toned windows and a sofa is 1,200 baht a night. Separating the rooms from the front lobby is a gate for added privacy and security, and along the corridor leading back to the rooms are a few garden nooks complete with some cheerful ducks and gnomes.

Come on in. The golden doorways offer an inviting welcome.

In the front lobby, which has a grand-looking painted tile floor, is a self-service area where guests can fix their own coffee, tea and toast, included in the price. Though rooms are sold as having “breakfast included” it’s really not enough to satisfy, so you’ll likely have to hit a bakery, dim sum or roti shop nearby for some added sustenance in the morning. The friendly reception staff here can help point you to the best places, and they arrange tours and transport also.

Lobby with an extravagant floor but somewhat skimpy breakfast service.

Found between Phuket Old Town Hostel and Thai Hua Museum, Ming Shou is a good launching point for exploring the historic sights, nightlife and cheap food choices of Phuket Town, walking over to the Lard Yai Sunday Market, and catching a songthaew bus to the beaches – the cheapest and most hassle-free way to get around Phuket.

For those needing more bang for their baht in Phuket over a beachy location, Ming Shou offers solid flashpacker value with a little added flair.
