I stayed at August Suites in February 2014 for 4 nights. Although I hated everything about Pattaya and would never go back again (I needed to find a last minute substitute for Bangkok and thought Pattaya wouldn't be that bad - well, it is... ;-)), this hotel was a very good choice.
The location is perfect: very central, but in a quiet alley. About 5 min walk to the beach (and 5 seconds to a lovely night market with delicious food! :-))
At night you could hear some noise from the bars in the area (my room was at the back of the building), but only with the windows open, so I really didn't mind.
My room was very comfortable (I even got a nice upgrade! :-)) and kept very clean.
The hotel has a nice relaxing pool area, breakfast was OK too.
The only reason I didn't give a 5 rating, is because of the service: some staff members are really nice, others totally indifferent and even rude.
One waiter at breakfast managed not to respond even once to my good mornings and thank you's in the 5 days I spent there (!), and nearly threw my breakfast on the table.
A lady at the reception refused to call a local travel agency for me to book my transfer. After nearly begging her several times to please help me because I needed to catch a boat the next day, she finally dialed the number and handed over the phone to me (eye rolling included), refusing to do the talking herself. Thankfully the travel agent spoke English, so it wasn't an issue, but wasn't really an example of good customer service imho...
Such a pity, because with a better staff overall, this hotel would definitaly be the best choice in Pattaya in its price range!
