The On On Hotel in Phuket Town was the very first Hotel to open in Phuket, which incidentally, is situated on its original site on Phang Na road, in the old town. The hotel very much like the old town itself has been renovated recently.

On On Hotel is slap bang in the middle of town and attracts clientele from all over the world. It provides an alternative holidaying experience from that of the usual resorts which many folk flock too on the west side of the island.
