I stayed here in May 2011. For clean, pleasant budget accommodation excellently located, this is hard to beat. Although fairly basic, it is clean, new, well maintained and serviced and as close to the bars and restaurants of the Hua-Hin night-life as one would want to be. It's located on a small service road connecting two main thoroughfares, so easy walking distance without the noise. I was in Hua-Hin for five days, so found it ideal for a short stay. Both my room and my travel companion's room came with a TV, bar fridge, in-room safe, air-con with remote and a small balcony. The rooms are serviced daily.
Although small (there was hardly 60cm between the bed end and the console encompassing the TV and 'fridge), the rooms are thoughtfully designed and laid out. Ditto the bathroom. Because of this, I didn't find the size inconvenient. However, think about it if space is important to you. Also, I think perhaps the addition of an electric jug would be a nice touch.
Baan Tawee Suk is not a hotel; it's a guest house and advertises itself as such. There's no in-room tea/coffee or jug (as mentioned), nor mini-bar. Neither does the establishment have a pool, in-house restaurant or bar, though one can buy cold beer and soft drinks from reception. The Internet connection is at reception also. It's not free, but the charge is nominal. Restaurants and bars are close enough that not having the facilities on the premises wasn't an issue, at least for me. A 7-eleven is around the corner, half a block away. I can't remember if there was an in-house laundry service, but in any case the small local laundries do a good job, are fast - generally overnight - and are quite cheap. In fact, I don't use the hotel laundries in Thailand. The independent ones do a good job, are fast and charge far less than the hotels.
The spoken English is rather limited, though if the young daughter of one of the family members is about you're in luck as she's studying the language and happy to practise. I never found the language barrier a problem; "beer", "restaurant", "bar" and "breakfast" were understood.
The owners are rightly proud of their establishment. I was impressed by the standard of cleanliness adhered to. There are signs requesting guests to remove their footwear when entering, presumably to preserve the newly tiled floor. I was gently chided for not doing so! There's no 24 hour reception and the front door is locked at night. One is given a night key for after hours access.
Summary: A shiny-new very clean, competitively priced and well serviced guest house central to the Hua-Hin night-life. Limited in-house facilities but close to just about everything you'll need.
