Baboona BeachFront Living
Ranked #178 of 455 Hotels in Pattaya
Reviewed 6 May 2014

The hotel is right on the opposite side of Pattaya beach on a one-way road. If you can pay extra and upgrade to the sea view room, It is definitely worth the money. In front of the hotel you can catch baht buses all the way down the beach for cheap, but be forewarn, it cost quite a bit more on the way back because the road opposite direction is 1/2 mile away so Taxi is your only choice or pay extra to catch the same baht bus back. Maid service is exceptional. She is well worth whatever this hotel pays for her. Friendly and conscious of room cleanliness.

Other than the hotel maid, other hotel staffs service was non-existence. The young door man and day receptionist are always playing with the cell phone or putting on her make-up. They don't offer much of a smile or help for that matter. You'd figured that they would be inclined to recommend places to visits or recommend ways for guess to save money while sight seeing? On the contrary, the only they tell you is go try it, it's on this street or that street. No tips, no hints no help. Terrible...

Breakfast was average on certain days and terrible the next. One day tables are full of food and the next it's emptied....weird. Of course you can ask them for Eggs and bacon but bacon are burnt on all 3 days I ordered and IT WAS COLD. The only positive I can say about breakfast is that it's free.

Things hotel needs to improve on: STOP PLAYING WITH YOUR CELL PHONE when guess are asking for help. Offer concierge service or at least offer guess help at "day" reception area. Not difficult to improve on.

Room Tip: Pay additional for the sea view room. Don't go to "The Sanctuary of Truth" trip. It...

Located on the beach front, close from the center but far enough to be out of the noise and the crowd. Great rooms fully equipped as a 4 stars ! Just next to the Hard Rock Cafe. Very nice breakfast included and walking distance from the center.

Room Tip: The beach side and the back side are all great, but only the price is different !

This boutique hotel is just across the street from central beach pattaya. Excellent location, clean rooms, free wifi, decent breakfast. Very good for the prices quoted. The staff speaks english was generous, usually leaves you to your own devices- got an early check-in without any extra charge. Stayed on the second floor beach facing room- could see the sunset over the gulf of Thailand right from my balcony!
Rooms higher up give better views. Remember one thing tho- its a small joint so you wont get 5-star service!

Room Tip: Select a sea-facing room - higher the floor number- better is the view (higher is the price also :p)

If you are searching for the best budget hotel on Pattaya beach then look no further… Baboona Beachfront Living is the perfect choice. The most obvious and the best thing about the hotel is its location… There are many beach facing hotel on Pattaya beach but this one is right at the edge of the road and the view of Pattaya beach from its balcony is unmatched. You just have to cross the road to get to the beach.

Room was spacious and very clean… Apart from the TV the room also had a DVD player and plenty of complimentary snack and drinks. There is free WiFi access in the room. The best thing about the room is the spacious balcony furnished with reclined chairs. Some reviewers have found the beach facing rooms noisy because of their proximity to the road but frankly after with the balcony door shut I didn’t hear much noise.

The hotel has a decent Gym, a Spa and Massage… I loved the aromatic massage which was very relaxing. Buffet breakfast had limited options but quality was exceptionally good. There is a terrace restaurant with both air-conditioned and open air dining areas overlooking the sea. I strongly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Try to get a beach facing room on 4th or 5th floor

i had a stay with baboona from15th to 18th march 2014 with my mother and wife. it was almost my 7th trip to pattaya and just on basis of reviews and location i booked this crazy hotel. The reception was horrible. the receptionists are too harsh and rude . As far as room is concerned you can hear between one room to another room along with the washroom drainage sound. balconies are more like interconnected ones. airconditioning is horrible it takes almost 2 hrs for ac to start action . breakfast menu is very low.only thing you can eat is egg and fruits rest is like tasteless.
At breakfast the hotel staff take special care for mostly western crowd or people who are more willing to give tip.
over all experience was very poor and highly not advisable

Room Tip: 4th floor is fine

Baboona is located perfectly right across the beach on the Pattaya beach road. Its a small boutique hotel with all amenities except for a swimming pool. Most of the rooms are sea facing and those are the best views. Modern rooms with very warm and helpful staff. The breakfast in the morning is good, but the only drawback is that the restaurant shuts down at 9.30pm

Room Tip: Just make sure that you get rooms facing the sea. Apart from that all the rooms are similar.

We stayed for 3 days in this Hotel Room # 601 at top floor, the room is decent furnished with both side window of sea view.

We loved the balcony especially with recling chair & the complimentary American Breakfast served. Additionally we were given complimentary Bar/drinks in room, DVD for rentals.

We enjoyed our stay and would recommend the fellow travellers for your stay.

Room Tip: take a sea view room in top floor
