Providing all the facilities and amenities expected of an international four-star hotel, Swiss-Belhotel Lao Cai features 186 guestrooms comprising Superior Rooms, Deluxe Rooms, Suites and a Presidential Suite.
The Memory at On On Hotel in Phuket Town, Thailand
Last year the former On On Hotel (a Phuket institution since 1929) underwent a whole year of renovation. The work that was done brought the Sino-Portuguese architecture of the building back to life. The location right in the heart of historic Phuket town makes it an ideal place for clients who want to soak up the history and heritage of the island.
Khiri Travel recently inspected the hotel and was impressed with the work and the history of this property. There are 44 rooms; the superior and deluxe rooms are separated from the hotel’s dorm area in the front section and there are a few suites in bright colors.
