We live in Thailand and travel to Pattaya from time to time for shopping. August Suites used to be our hotel of choice as it is central, but you're not on a noisy main road. We haven't been for a while because each time we call they try to palm us off on their newer and not as nice sister hotel, April Suites. We think this is because we only book for 1 or 2 nights on quick visits, and they may want longer stays. The best option is to use Agoda or other online booking engines where you can still get short stays, and at the same price as direct bookings.
The hotel has a very friendly front of house manager, Paul who goes out of his way to help you.
The rooms are stylish with lovely large ceramic floor tiles, huge bed, light paint and dark wood. I like the modern idea that the shower is not over the bath, but a separate large space, with a step inside for women.
The room has one of the largest fridges I've ever seen in any hotel room, but it's sole purpose, apart from any goodies you may add, are 2 bottles of water? Seems such a waste and very environment unfriendly.
It is fantastic to be able to have breakfast any time up until 12 noon and not have to rush if you don't want to. There's a well enough equipped gym, but I've never been able to work out how to use the saunas.
Downsides are that the swimming pool only opens at 8am, and closes at 7pm. Too early. Also it is quite disconcerting to see the Thai ladies of the night (and day) parading through the lobby on the arms of foreign tourists off to the rooms.
The hotel doesn't have a full restaurant, which is a good business idea given the many options in Pattaya. But just around the corner from the hotel is a "food hall" with many different cooks and a central seating area. You can also get the best mango and sticky rice from 2 outlets. Delicious!
