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