“Excellent place to stay, great service and rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2011

I stayed there for 4 days in september with a friend. Definitely would recommend it. Rooms are very big and nicely decorated, incredibily clean. Close to the sea and about 10 mins walk from touristic center, but plenty of nice places around where to eat.
People holding the place are very nicely and I definitely recommend it.

We only stayed one night here as I just wanted about two days shopping and one night in Phuket to check out the night life. We had a great time and our stay at Ruen Buathong Boutique Guest House was excellent. The place is clean, modern and close to everything. Service is very good and the people who run the place are super friendly and accommodating. Awesome value, could not fault it!

We have spent here 4 nights in august 2011 (at start we had booked just for two). It's a really clean place, nice rooms, with young friendly Thai people holding the place.
It's very near to the center but out of it and not far from the sea. It's simple but nice, if you want something different from the usual hotel and get in touch with friendly Thai people, this is the place for you.

I stayed at Ruen Buathong for the second time from June 20. to July 6. with a few days away going to some other places.

I´m happy to see that the level and quality of service was the same as my last visit. Still I am very pleased with the room quality and location is great.
Ruen Buathong has started to serve breakfast since my last visit, breakfast is standard but I only ate a few times, I´m not really into food in the morning and a glass of orange juice is enough to get me going.

The mood in the guest house is very friendly and I´ll come back next visit to Thailand.

Lovely hotel. My wife is VERY particular about cleanliness wherever we stay, and Ruen Buathong was extremely clean... spotless! It's a boutique, basic hotel. Don't expect a lavish lobby or restaurant. But expect a wonderfully run family hotel, very friendly staff, beautiful room and toilet. Some hotels have photos that look much nicer that what the actual rooms look like. But Ruen Buathong was great, and met and even exceeded all our expectations.

Location was on main road of Patong, yet tucked away in a quiet alley. Right at the doorstep are convenience stores (7-11, etc), taxis/tuk-tuks, foodstalls, massage centres.

One feedback I gave to owner was the shower water pressure was very low. They are aware of it and have already planned to improve that. So that's good to hear.

We loved everything about this hotel. Would definitely come back, and would definitely recommend it to everyone.

My Brother and I stayed at the Guest House for 10 days and the Location was Fantastic close to Bangla Road, Patong Beach and all the market shops.
The Owners of the Business and the management were so friendly and helpful booking all our tours and taxis while on holiday.
The rooms are the best I have seen and I work in the Hotel Industry, you must stay here if you want affordable price and location.

Thanks Guys

I stayed at Ruen Buathong for about 12 days in January/February 2011 and would highly recommend this hotel. After 8 quiet days in Kata I was searching for a place to stay in Patong. My fellow traveller and me was recommended this hotel by a friend already staying there and booked for a few days, we never regret our booking and extended our stay for the rest of our holiday.

Service was beyond excellent, the family running the place did everything possible for their guests to enjoy their time at Ruen Buathong.

My room was great, spacious and clean. The rooms are fitted with flatscreen TVs, wifi and refrigerator. The hotel has a modern feel with contemperary thai art in both the rooms and public areas.

The location is downtown Patong with only a few minutes away from the nightlife, lots of restaurants and about a 5 minute walk to the beach.

I will hopefully stay there at my next visit in Patong in June/July this year.
