Our Hotel - Baboona Beachfront living Hotel

Getting to Baboona

After approximately 2 hour mini-bus ride from Bangkok, we finally arrived Pattaya. We dropped off at their main station and took a Songthaew (Thai pickup taxi) which Pattaya happened to have alot of it. It operates like the public bus which you flag the Songthaew and they will stop for you to board.

Our hotel is located near to Pattaya Beach Road between Pattaya soi 3 and soi 4 so is pretty easy to spot where our hotel is. A press on the songthaew bell and it will stop for you to alight immediately and it only cost us 20 Bhat each!! How cheap is that!

Arrival at Baboona

Once at the hotel, we were rewarded with a friendly smile and refreshing orange juice from the hotel staffs. That truly brighten my day!

We were given a room on the 5th story with a card-key. The only thing i regretted most is why did i not book the hotel room with a sea-view balcony. We had a balcony to ourselves but is facing the back of the building. Nevertheless our hotel location is among the best in Pattaya as the beach is just across the road. So no complaint at all.


I'm truly satisfied with this hotel. Total price: 4800 Bhat for 3 night with free Wi-fi and breakfast buffet, equivalent to 205 SGD!!! That is so cheap. What else can you ask for? The location, the breakfast buffet, the design of the room the bathroom are just perfect.
