“Great staff, good location”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

At first sight this a typical budget guest house, but it has that special something....the staff. The owner is wonderful and very helpful, the cleaners came down to wave us goodbye. It is just a great friendly place unlike big corporate hotels where you are just a number. Basic but big room, clean and comfy bed, what more do you need :-) I would stay here again.

I recently stayed at Palada and paid for a long term stay up front.two days later I received an email telling me of a death in the family and I had to leave quickly. I hadn't expected a refund but the lovely girl in charge, offered to refund along with her sympathies. I was touched and thankful for their understanding and helpfulness. Not to mention I loved my room and stay there. Thanks Palada family...I will be back!

We booked this place based on price and location for three nights on the internet.

Good points:

Great location close to town center but still very quiet.
Good bed with nice quality clean linen and good pillows.
Good quality towels, changed daily.
Soap, shampoo, toilet rolls, etc. replenished daily.
Air-con.
Nice reception area and front courtyard area with small bar.
Reasonable sized bedroom.
Excellent free Wi-Fi
Only 1000 baht per night without breakfast

Bad Points:

Manager and staff speak hardly any English and yes I know this is Thailand but these places want foreign customers most of whom converse in English in this country.
No security box in the room OR at the reception even though the check-in slip informs you that the management take no responsibility of valuables in your room and that you can use the free security box at the reception. IT DOESN'T EXIST!
Room and particularly the bathroom was tired to put it mildly. The bathroom floor tiles had been painted over and the paint comes off in large pieces and sticks to the bottom of your feet.
The electrics didn't look too safe, the double socket in the bedroom had no cover on it and the light in the bathroom had a visible cable running to the bathroom socket.
The room furniture is extremely tired and basic, there isn't even a mirror in the bedroom just one in the bathroom.

We are a 50's English couple (live in France) of a working class background and this is a fair assessment of this guest house. The people running the place were pleasant enough but not overly interested in their jobs. If basic but clean is good enough for you then for the price, this place is well located.

Room Tip: No lift and stairs quite steep.

Incredible value for clean rooms, service and friendliness close to the center of the hustle & bustle of Hua Hin's center Sois without any noise. 5min to beach and suitable for both families and solo travelers. BIG HUGE recommendation to try the owners room masseur Kop (>80kg) physiotherapist will open up all blocked nerves.

Room Tip: 304 is the largest room

Stayed at this guesthouse for 6 nights.
Came straight from a nice and expensive hotel in Bangkok so we where very excited what we had in store here.
We arrived and the first thing meeting us was the extremly friendly and smiling staff.
The outside of the hotel was very comfortable and the location was quiet and good but just a small walk from the big stores and restaurants.
We got very good tips on tailor (Mike & Co) and extreamly good and various thai food served by the owner Palada.
The only ting that i did not like was the very small and simple bathrooms at the rooms with should be renovated.
But when this is said it was a very nice location with the friendliest owners and staff i ever met.
Great memories from Hua-Hin and Palada guesthouse.

We stayed here for two nights and were extremely happy. The room was simple but not lacking in anything - aircon, balcony, showeroom, tv and a comfy bed. The whole guesthouse was spotlessly clean and the downstairs communal area was delightful. It was a pleasure sitting there, chatting to the owners, playing darts and keeping out of the sun! They also had outstanding coffee in the mornings! The guesthouse is in a great location in Hua Hin, just round the corner from the beach and there are restaurants and bars everywhere. The owner gave us a lift to the bus station the morning we left, which was hugely appreciated with our rucksacks. We would return to the Palada guesthouse without hesitation.
