Just received a reply from their Facebook page and they said they couldn't process rentals less than one month.

Haven't bookings of under a month not been allowed for several months now, since June 2018 ?

Correct although many are still flaunting this rule.

Hi, 

Stayed here before (2 times) 2 years ago and they have my blessing. It's a great place and the owner(s) are extremely friendly. 

Is it still a good value - good/bad reviews lately? (haven't seen posts in a long time) 

Looking to do a month :)

price went up a fair bit when I inquired. 20,000 for a month last February when I stayed there......quoted 25,000 for a month this January.

I'm guessing its because January is considered high season, while February is shoulder season.

I think youll find January and February are considered high season now. High season prices tend to change once you get  into March.

Love all the "high season" bullshit we get fed. It's been such a slow year and don't think there'll be much of a high season this year. Had an agent telling me October is high season. 555

 

It wouldn't be so bad if business adjusted appropriately for "low season", but they don't. 

 

@bullseye Did you tell them you got it for 20k last February and they still wouldn't budge?

Just checked out Baku’s website & it states all rooms 25k per month. Does anyone know if this price is all inclusive? Ie water, electric & cleaning for the 25k?

Hi guys

Need some input about "a situation" I'm in....

I've stayed at Baku on 4 different occasions and one of them was a back-to-back 3 month rental. The place is great and that's why I keep repeating. 

In september 2019 I booked a month rental for late january 2020 and was asked to pay a 5k deposit. Payed right up. 2 weeks ago we found out my dad was dying and after things calmed down a bit I mailed Baku 1 week ago. Here's the exact wording:

Hi 

I'm sorry to say I need to cancel my Thailand trip because of a death in the family. 

It is 54 days before arrival and it's high season so hopefully you can find another tenant. However, I've never canceled a trip before and I don't know about your policy here. 
 
Could you keep 1000-1500 baht for your fees and inconvience and return 3500-4000 baht to my Paypal? 
 
I'll make sure to write something good about Baku in the forums. 
 
All the best,

 


This is my first cancellation of any type of hotel booking, so - is it common sense that the deposit is 100% forfeited even though I'm alerting 54 days in advance (and it's high season...). ? 

Anyways, I'm ignored a week back on e-mail and Facebook. 

Just wanted to say: it's probably the best place I've stayed in Pattaya and the bang-for-the-buck/ratio is extremely high. The staff is very friendly and the location is triple A. The showers are huge and the 50" TV's are popular by the girls. 
 
But, I believe a 54 day ahead notice should be honored in some way. If I just had not said anything, they would have an empty income for a month for that room.

It's not the first time i hear it and it did happen to me too in the past. Like you, i totally love the guesthouse, i stayed there before and will stay there again, but their communication is really bad. If you look at this thread or their threads about their two Gentleman Clubs or about The Roof or about their Bar on Soi6 there is nearly no advertising/no one answering questions. Don't know if no one has time or if they don't feel the need to do so:rolleyes: As you are ignored by them via mail and facebook i have another idea, which is not very elegant but maybe it will help you. Register on the LB forum https://www.ladyboyspattaya.com and write a message there to boardmember "solice" who has started the Baku Guest House thread there. I think he is not the owner of the guest house anymore (i don't get it who is running what at their Baku chain to be honest!) but i am sure he will point you into the right direction or even take care that someone will finally answer you. As i said, it's not the nicest way, but maybe it will help.

Some news: I was refunded 3500 baht of the total 5000 baht which I believe is total fair. Kudos to @Club Baku and Guesthouse. I will return again (and please see my previous comments about praising the place). 

Bless.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
