“Surprisingly better than expected!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I've never stayed there before but I'm happy to say that the 2 nights I spent there were worth it. The city view room is comfortable, nothing grand but then again you hardly spend much time in a room in Pattaya. The hotel pool however is exceptional, great size, activities, bar and overall the unique beach side area within the pool with private cabanas were amazing. The staff at the hotel were quite friendly, some more than others. In particular, one of the restaurant staff (not the cafe) known to us as 'Flo Rider' as per her badge was very kind and welcoming, thank you for that.

The food at the hotel, especially the Tom Yum Khum soup was the best I've ever had in Thailand, Its perfect in my books. Other than the hotel itself, its located at Pattaya beach and not far from the popular walking street so over all its a good locality.

Being a musician, I think the hotel really feels like the right place, you can also take on loan some guitars from the lobby that belonged to famous artists to practice in your room, huge plus for musicians! so overall it was a pretty good stay.

Was there with my wife in June 2014.

Room Tip: Any rooms with the sea view (higher floor) are generally a better choice.

We headed to Pattaya from scratch, no fixed plan or booking made ahead. So if you're about to do the same, please don't hesitate to check into Hard Rock Hotel. Price is reasonable for around 3500 bhatt per night, wifi and buffet breakfast included. Has huge and fun swimming pool which is a good option if you dont feel like going to the nearby beach. Its also a 15 mins walk to the famous red light district, Walking Street, where local shops and malls can be passed by. They have designated floors for smokers and non smokers which I think is great. Live bands every night at Hard Rock cafe for you to really have a Rocking Stay. :)

I decided to try Hard Rock Pattaya. travelling is Asia for over 20 years i had never stayed in a Hard Rock hotel, so i decided to give it a try in Pattaya. Mistake...... Although all facilities at the hotel are real nice, good rooms, good pool, actually most facilities are real good but in the hospitality business the most important factor is to make guests FEEL AT HOME and that is totally missing here. The bottom line is that they do not really care about hotel guests because if not you there will be someone else coming for the brand name and stay there. Plenty of potential visitors. They welcome the tourists that visit the hotel for a meal or drink, that's the goldmine.
It started with a 20 minutes wait for the luggage which arrived after 2 phone calls.
Pool : as a hotelguest you have to pay extra to stay at the pool gazebo (ridiculous), the towels are a mile from the pool and there is no sign so you can pick them up before you go to the pool and the poolboy just says the towels are over there in a tone like 'go get them yourself'
Elevator : there was a guard who was asking something in Thai and wouldn't let me in the lift at 11pm. A Thai couple helped me out and it appeared he wanted to see my room card. Isn't it possible that he would learn 1 single word englsih being "room card' or a word close to it....
Breakfast : it is quite handy to put someone at the 'eggstation' who has no idea what a fried egg sunny side up is (sarcasm)

I have run large factories with 800+ employees all over Asia and i always taught my staff some very basic English or at least some important words. Taking into account that many. many hotel guests do not speak Thai, i find it an ommission of hotel management that not even 1 word of Englsih is spoken/understood even more surprising if one takes into account the percentage tourism represents in the GDP of Thailand.
I heard from friends that the Hard Rock in Bali is a few classes better then the one in Pattaya, more hotel guests oriented but for me once is enough since i am old fashioned, i like if an attempt is made to make me feel at home.

A with/without kids hotel. Full of rock and roll memrobilia. Great cafés. Bands. Come see the decor
Entertainment club in the day for kids. We didn't have any kids with us and never saw any
Pool is half swimming and half sand, rock and water. Fab. With large rings or bananas to hire
Fun fun fun. Saturday night was a children followed later with a Saturday night adult foam party.
If this isn't enough your right on the beach. just cross a small road with your pool towels. Sea/sand Devine,
As you can tell this was a great central hotel and we very much enjoyed our stay
Staff are very helpful and nothing is too much. A must if going to Pattaya. We certainly will go back. Hopefully again soon. LOVED IT ALL!

Dear Gillian L,

Thanks for the excellent review! We believe we've got one of the best pools in town but we're going to make it even better with a few renovations and relaunch of our Hard Rock Pattaya Pool Party. (It's no longer just a foam party!)

Hope you'll visit us again soon.

We were super excited to be here, and Hard rock did live to our expectations! Located in Pattaya's high street, a 10 minute Tuk-tuk can drop you to the walking street!

Rooms were pleasingly clean, with rock band still frames all over, pillows too had guitar embossings! You also get a good music system in every room, connect to your auxillary cable and rejoice that you're at Hard rock!

There are lot of parties and activities that happen on and off, one must visit the website and plan accordingly!

Over all, quite fun!

Dear flyvsar,

Hey thanks for the great review! We're really pleased you enjoyed your stay and all of the small details that make us stand out from our competition. Hope you enjoyed all the cool memorabilia we have on display throughout the hotel and Cafe.

We definitely agree that everyone should visit our website and follow us on Facebook in order to keep informed about the events and parties we have throughout the year. However, our Hard Rock Pattaya Pool Party (not JUST a foam party) is a weekly event held every Saturday night. So come back and rock with us again soon!

We spent only one night here and have to say the place was beyond our expectations! The room was simple, nice, and clean. The service at an international standard level. The pool was wonderful, big, and very family friendly. We were lucky to make it to the Family Foam Party which was pretty awesome (They have a foam party for adults later in the night too but too bad due to current situation in Thailand there is a curfew so those activities were canceled). Was very surprised to see many other activities and facilities were all very good and in good quality including the gym, steam rooms, mountain climbing. If you have children there a lot of things too besides the pool. The hotel seems to have these shows every weekend night for children which seemed entertaining. We also had time to stop by for the Dinner and Breakfast buffet which both was very good.

We stayed here for only one night because we had a hotel voucher but we surely wanted to stay longer. We will surely be coming back again!

Room Tip: Make sure to join the foam party!!! Happens during the weekends!

Had an interesting time at the Hard Rock in Pattaya due to the Thailand military coup that recently occurred.

I had a kings club room and that was handy for using the kings club lounge for evening drinks and canapés. The room itself was clean and spacious.

I made full use of the pool and there are constant staff who are present who will not hesitate to place that food or drink order for you.

Location within Pattaya is ideal. Just use the baht bus to get around the city.

Room Tip: Upgrade to Kings Club
