Last week i made an unexpected trip to pattaya beach where i was really jammed up on where to book a room to stay for the next few ways while i wanted to party on walking street.
I booked a room on Agoda 2 blocks away (total dump) **** had roaches and spiders on the walls . Filthy and had no hot water. along with an elevator that looked like we were going to die in if it ever failed. Needless to say i was pretty pissed and refused to stay after inspecting the room. I left with all my things in hand and the previous hotel refused to pay me my money back due to booking online..... Rules Folks !!!! (ALWAYS BOOK DIRECT NEVER USE 3RD PARTIES) why u pay 2x the price and there are NO REFUNDS !!!!
I walked to some nearby bars and told them my troubles and a few girls i knew that worked the area. They told me to walk to Soi 14.... Im walking down this skinny alleyway of a street where i approach this Massive Hotel in the middle of the rough. I see this guy outside smoking a cigar and I ask him, " hey u stay here?" he's like ive been here for 10 years....
I told him my troubles and he told me to C'm on son I got you covered"......His name was Don ....Thanks Again Don.... (u rock bro"!!!) Don took me to the desk where he worked his magic with the hotel and got me a balcony room on the 8th floor facing it ALL...
Best Experience Ever .... I highly recommend this Hotel !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hands down you can not find a better place on walking street for the $$$$ and the Location......
If you stay and you want a view from a balcony u need to be on the odd side preferably 7-9th floor. if u want an ocean view u need to book an even room on either floor..... believe me its awesome viewing the ocean from your bed.
(Location on Soi 14 & Walking Street) Small Alleyway
Clean rooms with nice porcelain tile flooring and granite accents
Breathtaking view from your 2 seated Balcony -- View of all of Pattaya City, Waterfront and Walking Street... Breathtaking !!!!!
Cold A/C !!!!
Clean beds with daily cleanup & daily amenities to be refreshed- water, towels, linens, and shower gels and shampoos.
They have a restaurant.
Barbershop, 7-11, massage and laundry in 2 mins walking.
I am going to start off to say "for me to give a 5 star Approval " 3 things were missing- that are a "must" for the perfect "5 Star experience"..... however these are the only lacking areas.
#1 No Lockbox in the Room (however they are lockboxes downstairs in the front desk...i personally dont care for them out of my control)---but they do give u possession of the key to the box
#2 No bathtub (shower Only)
#3 No Swimming Pool
I have nothing but positive things to say about the staff. everyone was courteous and pleasant to me. The cleaning ladies are very sweet every morning at noon.... i always tip them.
Negatives - Hit or Misses
*Borderline --- u can give your room-key (physical key) to the downstairs desk clerk and they hold it for u... (so key is not an issue and i will not hold it against them) so when you are drunk off your butt --- u just walk in with how many ladies u have for that time of day or night ... u tell the front desk ure room number .... Presto theres your key--- off to the lobby to the elevator
