Many areas offer bars, restaurants and shopping, it's depending what you like. New area like soi Buakhao and around offer a large choice for everything, of course the main spot area can also be walking street for some. North, central and south Pattaya offer all and Pattaya city is not so large.

Soi 13 is pretty central to the action, close to Walking Street on the South end and not far from the beerbars of soi 7 and 8 to the north. Try the Sandy Springs Hotel, Lek Metropole or the Whitehouse Condotel. All 3 are good hotels

Where you stay is sort of personal preference, or some people return to the same area all the time because it is familiar with them.

If you find a hotel that is between soi 8 on Pattaya 2nd Road up to the Mike Mall you will be close or within walking distance to lots of nightlife, street vendors, malls, movie theaters, restaurants and travel agents. This is a good direction for either direction.

I usually stay in hotels on Soi Honey Inn or nearby Soi Skawbeach. I have been returning to this "neighborhood" for over 10 years. I like the cheap buffet breakfasts at the Apex Hotel and the Lek hotel (open to walk-ins!)

In this area you can easily hop on a baht bus to go north by catching the ride on Pattaya 2nd Road or to to go south catch one on Beach Road. (Beach Road is one way South and Pattaya 2nd Road is mostly one way North.)

Soi Buahaw is not that far from things, baht buses go in both directions, lots of new bars and cheap hotel rooms!

Don't get a place out near Sukhumvit Road or you will be wasting time and money taking rides to the more popular areas of Pattaya!

Minor correction:
