Good value choice
Located down a small soi running away from the beach off Rat-U-Thit 200 Pee Rd, just to the north of Hat Patong Road, the Ruen Buathong is a bright, welcoming guesthouse and represents good value.
Built in October 2010, the friendly owners have 16 rooms -- each one is bright with touches that make you feel like you are at a home with really good art. Rooms are white, sunny and have soft beds, coffee- and tea-making facilities, free WiFi, minibar, flat screen TVs and modern high-quality bathrooms. You can get a standard room with single, twin or a double bed, and the deluxe rooms are significantly bigger, with a seating area situated around the mini-bar. Though most rooms have small balconies, aim for a room on the top floor for unobstructed views. Continental breakfast included. If the place had a pool, it would be fair to call it perfect. Oddly, on our most recent visit in 2015, there was a “Fully Booked” sign at the entrance, but there were several rooms available, so don’t hesitate to ask at reception if you’re hoping to book on the spot.
