Just checked out of the Grand Residence Hotel in Jomtien,Pattaya Thailand& must say it has been the worst experience ever in all my many years travelling.I checked in the day before my birthday& was told i would have to move rooms at 12pm the next day as someone else had booked that room.This is when my trouble started.The new room on a lower floor was bigger,but had not been prepaired for habitation at all.The tv was not working,the walls were dirty,the shower was broken& there was a massive cockroach on some big internal bedroom shutter doors.Also the door to my room would not lock from the outside when i left the hotel,it was one of those door handle button things that you press in from the inside to lock.It had another lock underneath this one& as you are supplied with two different keys I used this one& it worked.I returned back to the hotel at 1am the next morning after going out on the night of my birthday to find that my door would not open.I told the night porter on reception& after at least ten minutes of trying with a big bunch of extra keys,he could not open it either.I was taken back down to reception& told I would have to sleep in another room on the seventh floor& the engineer would be there in the morning to fix the door.I went up in the lift to this room only to find its door would'nt open either.I went back to reception& was now very angry.I was given another key to yet another room& after a struggle managed to get this door open& sleep in the room.I was then woken up at 7:30am by the same night porter& a maid telling me I had to swap back to my lower floor room.I complained about all this the next day to the receptionist& asked for a refund,but was told i could not have one.I then asked for a piece of paper& a pen& put a complaint in writing addressed to the manager& the owner.During this day I was also telephoned from reception to be told the the engineer would be coming to my room to fix the shower.He turned up with a new spray tube that you use in the toilet in Thailand to clean your bum with!He replaced the old one with that,but in fact there was nothing wrong with it.I could not sleep the next night because of the thought of all the problems I had had with this hotel& the fact that there are telephone cables right next to the bedroom windows which make a very loud& disturbing tapping sound every few hours throughout the night.Another thing which does'nt add to a good nights rest is the fact that there is a motorcycle crash on the sandy main road outside the rooms every night.There had been one each night I was there.I used part of my sleepless night to pack my bag,determined I would not spend another night in that hotel.
I checked out of this modern 1500 bhat hotel the next morning and found another older hotel nearby that had everything I needed& everything that worked for only 600 bhat.
Avoid the Grand Residence Hotel at all costs,it looks good from the outside,but you may well have trouble sleeping& the problems I had with the room& the staff tainted the image for me of 'The Land of Smiles'

Room Tip: Stay in a cheaper better value 600 bhat hotel on Soi 7 with more caring staff& a much greater ch...
