I purchased 2 rooms via Wotif.com for myself, my daughter (14yrs) and two family friends (15 & 17yrs) for one week at the beginning of October 2011. I purchased the cheaper rooms for $36AUD ea per night including breakfast - as we were travelling for 1 month and on a budget.
We arrived at around 10am after an all night flight from Aus via Bangkok. We were fully expecting our rooms NOT to be ready due to our early arrival and opted to sit in the foyer/pool area without complaint until our rooms were available. We were called a very short time later and advised we had been 'upgraded' and our rooms were infact ready.
Our rooms were lovely, large and clean & quite. The beds were fantastic and that is coming from someone with a back complaint. We were on the top floor, the lift x 2 were close by and never had to wait more than 1 minute. The rooms were cleaned daily by very friendly and obliging staff. Sure there was a little bit of mould in the shower at times.. we are in Thailand!
The 3 girls choose to spend two entire days by the beautiful pool instead of heading out to the beach.
Breakfast was more than sufficient - not too sure what other reviewers have for breakfast at home each day but it certainly kept us more than happy - most days we didn't eat again until night time - can't be too bad!! I have paid upwards of $25ea for many a breakfast in Australian hotels for far less than what was on offer at the Baumanburi.
We ate at the hotel restuarant and found it to be very nice indeed and a great price. We also ate at Poo Restuarant - left outside the hotel and on the opposite side of the road (opposite the Mercure) - amazing food. The laundry service outside the hotel for 50baht a kilo is amazing value.
OTOP markets are right next door and offer great value. You will find everything you need at much cheaper prices than on beach rd. If your after a Taylor, head to Marriott Fashions, turn right out of the hotel (but stay on the same side), just past Otop markets and you will find Jamie & Raj at Marriott Fashions - opposite the Holiday Inn. Fantastic people and 'THE BEST' Taylors. We have been travelling to Phuket and have had clothing made for 16yrs - these guys are amazing and will give you exceptional service and quality clothing.
For a massage turn left out of hotel, past the Mercure to The Mango Tree - 3min walk. They offer one of the cheapest foot/thai massages in the immediate area with the friendliest women. The four of us visited everyday and even though they charge only 250baht an hour (less than $8 AUD) they quite often have 20% off.
All in all this hotel is great value for money and is in a great location for family's who wish to stay in Patong but keep their kids away from the 'real' nightlife on offer just down the road!!.
I think a lot of us wish that we can pay for a four star hotel and receive 5 star service. If you wish for 5 star service then pay the price for another hotel.
Well done Baumanburi - we will certainly return and we will be telling our friends to visit as well.
