Travel Tips on finding affordable accommodation in Phuket

Phuket Budget Hotels are a perfect choice for travellers who don’t want to spend all their hard earned money on expensive resort style accommodation !!!

Once you start searching, you will be pleasantly surprised just how many conveniently located good low priced budget hotels you can find across Phuket.

Budget accommodation in Phuket

Most budget hotels in Phuket are well furnished and equipped with all the modern amenities that budget travellers need.

Including telephone services, private bathrooms, toilet, fans and air-conditioning, and many even have swimming pools and free Wi-Fi.

Phuket budget hotels are much cheaper than the luxury Five Star Resorts.

However many of these low cost hotels do provide similar facilities, but without all the bells and whistles, and best of all without burning a hole in your pocket.

When choosing your hotel, whether it is an upmarket five star resort or a low cost budget hotel, you should consider a few things, such as what sort of facilities are important to you.

A couple of facilities we look for before booking any budget hotel in Phuket is the location of the hotel in relation to night life, shopping and the beach and whether the hotel has a swimming pool.

With so many Phuket budget hotels to choose from, we recommend before you book your hotel, that you do as we do and read reviews.

Below is a list of some of the best Phuket Budget Hotels that we have found in Phuket.

The hotels we have listed are from Mai Khao Beach on the North of the Island to Rawai in the South.
