For the price, it is not a bad stay. Of course, do not expect a 3 or 4 star hotel, this is clearly a boutique hotel.

The rooms are not bad sized, though the floor can sometimes still be dusty. The bed is quite comfy. The towels are clearly old and frayed at the side. Housekeeping lady is polite and obliging. One thing that annoyed us - the air cond control is stuck on the wall, and we had to get up everytime we wanted to change the aircond temperature. The worse thing was that the aircond temperature didnt seem to be constant, it was either too hot, or too cold.

Front desk does their job but there was one lady who was quite stuck up. Restaurant staff are not friendly at all. Breakfast was included - variety of food very limited. Ham, eggs, sausages and bacon are limited to one portion per person. There was a day when we requested for an extra omelette and the waiter gave us a face. The other breakfast food is standard and does not change - fried rice, pasta, bread, cereal (if you are lucky, mango sticky rice).

Location is north of beach road, The beach is just across the hotel, although the fun parts of the beach is located down the road. I personally would have preferred to stay more central of the beach road, closer to central festival mall which is just next to hilton hotel.

Overall, for a boutique hotel and the price you are paying, the hotels is quite good.

Been there in March, 2013 for 3 nights.

Pros:
- Location. Next to the beach (if you need it) and Central Festival
- Room size (quite big for the price you pay).
- Free min-bar in the room
- Good breakfast with freshly squizzed juices
- Good price (about $50 per night)

Cons:
- Noisy air conditioning. The noisiest I ever met in hotels
- Overall hotel and surroundings' cleanliness
- Rooms require renovation

I'd rate it 4*, but air conditioning sound may spoil your holiday.

I went to Pattaya on 1st July and stayed there for 3 days at Baboona. Because it was not weekend, the hotel didn't have many people. I have to say I really love this hotel. We are big families with noisy children but they were friendly and tolerant. The rooms are clean and well equiped and you can see the beach from here. It's opposite the beach and you can certainly swim there as it's very clean. The reception are friendly and helpful. I have nothing to complain about this hotel. It's a good value of money. I recommend this hotel to big families with children.

This hotel is truly overrated. The receptionists are totally unprofessional. Their attitude and service is truly depressing. The restaurant staff always look weird and they are totally indifferent. The walls of the room are so thin and the toilet flush and the shower in the nearby rooms make a HELL OF A NOISE that you wake up in the middle of the night losing your precious sleep.

IGNORE this hotel and its NOISY facilities.

I booked this hotel about 3 months ago. Two months before our travel date I wanted to cancel my reservation due to some personal reasons. However they refused my request saying this hotel room can't be cancelled. I felt they only cared about money and were very business-like. I gave you a notice of 2 months ago. What loss would you have to suffer if you let it? We eventually made the trip come true. Their service and room were very average. Staff were very buiness like, not friendly. Rooms are far worse than their photos. I won't choose them anymore!

Room Tip: See reviews!!!!!! Very important!

What do you need for a good stay...? A good location..? Good Value..? Comfort...? Class..? Service...? Food...? I guarantee that this hotel is up to the mark. Go for it. Any room you get, just take it and enjoy your stay.

Room Tip: Ask for beach facing room...
