PLACES TO STAY IN PHUKET: No. 36 is a new serviced apartment near the bypass road in central Phuket with fully-furnished apartment rooms for short- and long-term rental with a full range of facilities for travellers who need to stay connected.
No. 36 Serviced Apartments opened in early 2013 and has a contemporary boutique hotel kind of feel with a 24-hour reception and business services, including desktop computers with free internet access as well as free Wi-fi for guests.
Choose from three room types: Superior Double Bed; Deluxe Twin Bed; and Deluxe Rivet View. Each apartment room is fully furnished with comfy beds, an en-suite shower and satellite channels on a wall-mounted widescreen LCD TV, plus fitted wardrobes and multi-purpose furniture.
No. 36 doesn’t have a restaurant but finding food nearby is quite easy with a daily fresh market just down the road, and Tesco Lotus, Big C and Central stores are a short drive away for some farang food foraging.
But if you need a shot of caffeine, you can pop down to the lobby area and sip a fresh coffee, at the garden terrace out back.
You don’t get a sea view but the surroundings are quiet. One side of the building looks out onto a neighbourhood across the road, the other side looks onto a hillside.
