We paid for a basic room, so that was very basic, but the rest of the hotel is nice. Food was very good, we loved the club sandwich and spring rolls! The guys in reception were very helpful and polite, and the location is awesome, close to both beach and shops/restaurants. Short tuktuk-trip to mall and Bangla road. Would stay here again, but then get a better room.
Planning Phuket, we booked this through our travel agent, rooms and location is very good, close to patong beach but service of staff is frustrating. Annoying things are as follows;
1) Due to coloured hair/ lipstick there were few stains on handtowel and duvet, which we completely agreed. I told the hotel staff to normal wash( I was sure the stains would go) and yet if stains remain, get it dry-cleaned I will pay for it. Being a local the hotel staff refused any help, expected me on holiday to hunt for dry cleaners, negotiate with them in Thai( which I clearly don't speak) . I had to get it dry cleaned myself and very Clearly didn't want this to be a part of my itenary!
2) we had an early morning checkout(4 am) so requested the hotel staff to keep all the paper work ready for smooth check out process. But again the disappointed striked when the inefficient staff took 10 mins to count 5 towels, argued as the towels were only wet( not stained) , was finding papers post our airport cab arrived. Again very frustrating. Upon given feedback for the service he said " it's ok " no scope for improvement here!
3) Shower in the room wasn't working at 11pm, hotel staff was utter waste of time convincing me cold water to be hot! I mean this was ridiculous, luckily we had 2 rooms booked so had to use the other room for shower.
4) Food- don't even bother ordering here, the Tom yum soup was a clear broth that they served! There are couple of local restaurants around which are amazing.
With such good location it's sheer waste of property with such incompetent staff which adds to hassle during your holidays.
Baramee resortel is one the nicest hotel in Patong area in Phuket . Just 5 min walk to Patong Beach . There are only two Indian hotels nearby. Also you have lot of halal Thai street food option & halal sharwarma & burger shop just opp to hotel. Overall location wise right area for those who are lookin for decent holidays with family.
Only problem with this hotel is that there is no early check in . You will be made to sit in lobby until 2 pm without ac. Check in is at 2 pm. Even if room are empty they don’t allow you for early check in ..
Although it's a nice hotel conveniently located closer to the beach,I wouldn't recommend based on my experience below. There are other hotels around in the same area. So the first day I arrived I was greeted by Ben the team captain who was very nice and explained everything to me. When I got in my room I was impressed by the view. After I settled in few things were not working properly and they came to fix it. They had 2 robes in the room and I discovered that one of the robe had a weird stain on it. It was a larger robe. See picture below. I used the smaller robe which was clean. I wanted a later checkout but they didn't have that available. So I booked an extra day for another room. The next day my flight schedule was changed and i asked to cancel the room less than 24 hrs before I booked it and they refused. On top of this. I felt discriminated against when I came in the hotel going to my room one of the staff had to stop me and ask if I had a room there. I said yes. And he proceeded with additional questions even when the other staff who was sitting him saw me when I first checked in and was just smiling like this was funny to him. No one else was stopped but me. After multiple questions that didn't make sense I just walked away.
I could not believe how housekeeping left this robe in there.
Very nivce hotel very close to Patong Beach (you can get towls for a beach visit from the hotel) and a good amount of priceworthy restaurants. The breakfast is good and if you want a little view, ask for a room at the 3rd og 4th floor. Happy hour at the pool bar is priced OK and the pool area had, when we stayed there, at nice brise so you can stand the heat. But some of the chairs in the pool area were bean bags, and I don't like that. The hotel restaurant is good and average priced for an evening meal and you can get nice snacks and meals from the restaurant at the pool bar in the afternoon.
