Hotel Baraquda Pattaya - MGallery by Sofitel
Ranked #8 of 455 Hotels in Pattaya
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 March 2014 via mobile

This place is swish and you feel like a valued customer from the moment you enter the door , the staff are very polite and can't do enough for you. Bags are taken and they drop them to your room. The pool is great and very large, the irons feel very big and bed - perfect. There is a great walk in shower and toiletries are provided. All in all I would come back here in heartbeat. The area is central but the hotel is very quiet .

I stayed at the Dusit D2 in Pattaya in March 2014 with my wife and we loved it. The rooms are modern, clean and well maintained. The location is ideal in that you come out onto the street and it's all there, shopping, food, and entertainment on your doorstep. All that being said the staff are the jewel in the crown. I will always return to this hotel for the friendly helpful staff who make you feel welcome and at home.

My husband and I stayed at Dusit D2 in early Feb for an extended honeymoon getaway after a week in Bangkok. Athough we had researched the hotel and looked through quite a few photos of it (mostly beautiful ones), we were still pleasantly surprised with the service, rooms and just the overall vibe of the hotel.

It is situated conveniently nearby to many eateries, a supermarket, pharmacy, night market and is just a short walk to the famous Walking Street. Just about a 10-15 min walk on either side of the hotel would also bring you to a mall.

Upon arrival we were promptly greeted by the doorman and the security guard, the former being really efficient in helping us with our bags. The check-in was without fuss and very quickly completed, and then later we were offered welcome drinks - refreshing start to our stay, really.

Our room, which was just a standard room, had us feeling very much at home. It was really clean and we loved the decor and the overall layout and design of the room. The electronics/equipment were in perfect working condition too. We have no complaints about the room at all - I even told my husband that I would love to come back to a room like that any day!

I would say the strongest positive was the people - which I believe truly makes or breaks any hotel experience. The staff at Dusit D2 were sincerely friendly, courteous and very pleasant. They made us feel comfortable without seeming like it was a job to them, it truly came from the heart. This transcended from the security guards to the room attendants. And eventhough the room attendant was not well versed in English (which I did not expect her to be since I'm travelling in a country where English is not the first language), it was nothing that simple hand gestures could not have solved.

A big THANK YOU to everyone at Dusit D2 for being such wonderful hosts! I would go back to stay again in a heartbeat if I ever decide to visit Pattaya in the future.

I am afraid this is not quite a five star hotel, but with a little more thought and staff training it could be. I stayed in one of the two storey suites; next time I won't bother, although I will return.

Pros:

Friendly, cheerful and helpful desk staff.

Large Pool with plenty of available sun loungers.

Spotlessly clean.

Great location.

Comfortable mattress and beds.

Large walk in shower.

Lots of toiletries and little free gifts. A nice touch.

In room Nespresso machine with limitless expresso pods on request. Great for coffee addicts.



Cons:

Food is always luke-warm by the time it gets to the roof top restaurant.

Room service staff English is poor so they don't understand simple requests.

Hot water availability variable.

No proper desk to work from in the two storey Suites.

You need a degree in electrical engineering to work out the lighting switches between the two levels.

Curved headboard means no bed side table. Very impracticable leaving drinks on the floor etc.

Location Location Location!!
I think it was located beautifully, just opposite the Marriott Hotel and Ripleys Museum.
It gave perfect access to the Pattaya night life (ie Walking Street) and also to the shopping areas, be it the Pattaya Night Bazaar, Central Festival Mall (Hilton).
The Hotel itself is modern/spartan with comfortable rooms and they serve a good breakfast.
Friendly and courteous staff always helps.

Room Tip: Try to get a room number between no. 1-8. Otherwise you start feeling the walk after a long night.

This isn't a 5 star hotel. I would rate it a 3 1/2.
The good things. Friendly staff throughout offering very good service. A good breakfast to start the day. The bar on the roof served good tapas. The pool is very good. The room I had was good overall. It was clean. Sleep quality was good. The location was good.
The not so good. It's getting tired. The shower only had warm water. The shower heads were both not quite right. I am not a fan of wooden toilet seats. The airconditioning was too cold and couldn't be set higher. It defaulted to freezing every time. The seats in the dining room are worn. Overall the hotel needs a revamp.
Undecided if I would stay here again. Probably not.
