“For the price, it sucked.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

My stay consisted of bad smells and noise, since my room was right next to their makeshift workshop. I was met with the smell of cat urine since the cat lived outside my room and would meow at the door.

Our shower was not even luke warm and the tv sounded like it would blow up. There is an option to use the safes in the lobby (which anyone has access to) but you will be met with with broken locks and pry marks where people have jimmied open the WOODEN doors.

We were supposed to be upgraded (AT OUR COST) half way through our trip but that never happened. After checking out early to move to a better hotel we were told there are no refunds.

Breakfast buffet is large and is OK.

Room service is included

The spa in the pool is also cold and constantly leaking.

The Wifi is great, but sometimes drops out. It is still better than other wifis I used whilst there.

It is not a resort, just a budget hotel. Rooms are OK but sometimes smell bad. If you have opted for deluxe room then they will not provide you with private safe. Located near patong beach but far from main market and Bangla Road. Food options are limited and not so good. It was OK stay.
No spa and fitness center.

Very kind and helpful staff, excellent service. Hotel was very clean and nicely designed. It was calm and quiet at night. A safe and pleasant place to stay.
Free WiFi/internetcomputer and free shuttlebus to Jungceylon shoppingcentre was nice services for the guest.
Close to ATMs, beach, taxi, moto and FamilyMart/7eleven.
I liked to sit and eat their tasty french-fries at the outdoor frontrestaurant and people-watching in the evening.

I was extra amazed by the cleaning-lady, she was _very_ fast and efficient, always with a good and happy mood. I have never seen anything like it, very impressive!

I was very happy with what I got for my money and I will return.
I will recommend Baramee to whoever want to stay in Patong! :)

When we have checked in the room , air conditioner was making a hell lot of noise. So immediately I went to receptionist to change the room, she told me rooms are not available and instead she had sent a technician. He started to open it completely and we have to wait outside for a very long time. The hospitality is pathetic.

except for its proximity to the patong beach it has no other positives.
only the housekeeping staff are very diligent in their work otherwise a small hotel and somehow i do not know why all Indians were given ground floor accommodationat at that time! god knows!!!
although it can be a small budget hotel but it was clean.

I was in Baramee Resortel from June 11 to 14th 2013 in swim pool side and the rooms and services were awsum. You will get good breakfast with different varieties. Patong beach is at walkable distance and you can enjoy that when you feel. It's really value for money.

Room Tip: Choose room of deluxe superior they are best

We went there as a couple.
The initial impression from outside was that it was a small hotel but it turned out the other way round.

At the reception the receptionists were not very conversant with English except 1 lady who could easily understand us

TMB bank is just next door which gave us the best exchange rate

The corner roadside rooms have open view on 2 sides and from the balcony you can get a view of the patong beach

The famous Bangla road and jungceylon mall is about a 20 min walk on the beach

For roadside shopping I would suggest shopping from shops while walking from beach to Bangla road as they give a good bargain of upto 50% which I don't find as we moved towards Bangla road

The restraunt closes down by 10 hence at late night u will have to eat out

However for breakfast the restraunt opens early morning by 6.30 which is good as all tour pickups are around 7-7.30

In terms of veg menu in breakfast we could get corn flakes bread toast baked potatoes fruits and salads with tea coffee

The pool has restricted timings ie 7am to 7 pm. Which leaves you less time if you have day excursions planned to phi phi/ James Bond island/ phang nga etc
Thus couldn't use it also it has a poolside spa

You can take the pool towels to the beach if you want

Also umbrellas are available at the entry for your use if required as it drizzles for about 30 mins at a stretch

Taxis from hotel to Bangla road will charge about 200 bath oneway and will not go by meter however you can hire bikes from hotel at just 200 bath a day and the gasoline is cheap 40 bath a liter

I would suggest a corner roadside room which is silent even tough near the road
