I stayed in this hotel in my first trip to Thailand that took place in January-February 2012. Since it was my first trip I didn't know what to expect in general of hotel standards in Thailand. Now after 3 visits in Pattaya and 3 different hotels I can guarantee this was the most luxurious hotel where I have stayd in thailand no doubt about it.
The hotel is located off 2nd road 2 minutes from Mike's Shopping mall. Now when I think back my two other hotel choises they were definately better located in my point of view as a person who likes to party every night on Walking Street. But distance from Walking Street is reasonable still and this hotel is on the baht bus route so couple of minutes from Walking Street with baht bus. On the other hand location suites well for person who likes to sit daytime in beer bars and nighttime in Walking Street since this hotel is kind of midpoint of Walking Street and all beer bars in Soi 8 & Lk Metro, so not close to some specific place but reasonable distance to many places in all directions.
This is definately guest friendly hotel which is important for my activities but also attracts western couples and this is the only hotel I have stayed in Pattaya of which I can say so. Maybe not for families with small children, but not so single male tourist oriented hotel as other hotels I have stayed. Service level is great. Doorman opens the door for you what ever time of the day or night you come in and there is always service available.
Restaurant is great and serves good Thai food with wide opening hours and cheap price + breakfast buffet is superb. Pool area on the roof is great and there is also good bar for coctails etc. in the pool area. And you can order food from the restaurant downstairs to pool and enjoy rooftop view while eating your custom made English breakfast. Pool is very popular so it might need some effort to get sunbed but once you get it it's wort of it.
Rooms were clean and quite new and everything worked as dream. Balcony view was good enough. Aircon worked best what I have experience so far. So room was more than ok. Of course this room cost some extra money comparing to two other hotels I have stayed in Pattaya, but if you want some luxury it costs more.
I can recommend this hotel to person who is not so party oriented but wants to be in the middle of everything in terms of good restaurants, shopping etc. Good place to stay but maybe not best place for me and my way of living when I stay in Pattaya.
