We stayed at this colonial look hotel in July 2016. It is situated literally on the beach, which btw probably is the better part of the beaches in Hua Hin. The hotel mgmt and staff are very friendly, polite and forthcoming. The good thing about this hotel is that it is shielded from traffic and noise, a small oasis if...

Very pleasant and relaxing stay, we had just done a tour of Laos and were looking for a place to relax before coming home this certainly met our needs being directly on the beach and having its own beach beds. Staff very friendly. Does have shuttle bus to night market but could offer better service.

Loved staying at this 21 room colonial vintage beachfront resort. We've been to Phuket many times and decided to try something different. We were upgraded to a courtyard room with was huge!

The Baan Bayan was one of three hotels we stayed in during our visit to Thailand. The hotel itself is a little tired in places, especially the bathrooms, and there are annoying ledges on the bathroom floor which we all tripped over several times. It could be quite dangerous. The hotel itself is a good 10-15 walk from the town...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Baan Bayan was originally built in the early 1900s. Facing Hua Hin’s white sandy beach, it has the undeniably superb location in one of the most sought after areas there. Baan Bayan forever catches the eyes of passersby with its hundred-year old frangipani tree, its spacious veranda together with its carved eaves and railings embracing the house. Originally a family’s summer retreat, Baan Bayan was one among many summer beach houses owned by Royal Highness Prince Devawongse Varopakarn. Built during the early period of construction of Hua Hin town and railway station, the house had been handed down to Princess Absornsamarn, consort of Royal Highness Chantaburi Naruenart, before being sold to Khun Prabha Chaiyawat on 1 April 1952. The house was then renamed Baan Bayan, as coined by Ya-Khob, the renowned Thai writer. In the past, Baan Bayan was regularly visited by Khun Prabha, her children and grandchildren and great grandchildren. Its charm and ambience render feelings of warmth and happiness in its simplest form. Not only does Baan Bayan hold its value as a rare architectural building, but it also reminds those very fond of the house of times passed and memories still cherished. Today, it is one of the rarest and finest examples of a golden teak Thai style bungalow house, lovingly restored to its former glory. Baan Bayan was awarded the prestigious Historical Architectural Conservation Award in 2005 by the Association of Siamese Architects (ASA) under the Royal Patronage. Guests staying at Baan Bayan can experience the glory of a bygone era, yet with all of today’s modern comforts and amenities. It is positioned as a small exclusive luxury beach hotel offering the charm of a traditional Thai aristocratic beach house. Baan Bayan will allow guests to sink back into a history rich with associations of the swinging, glorious 1920/30’s. Guests who have a desire to experience history and culture and seek a different vacation venue will appreciate the atmosphere at Baan Bayan. Advantageously, the resort is only a few minutes away from Hua Hin town center, market, and airport. ... more   less
