“Brand new - but without heart”
Reviewed 22 March 2014 via mobile

Large rooms (super strange layout), very clean, nice pool on the rooftop. Staff is unfriendly, breakfast a catastrophe (selection, situated in a cellar), too expensive overall - there are much better places for this price in Pattaya. Caution: place is located in a dark side street.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

Reviewed 14 February 2014

The hotel is in a reasonable location in North Pattaya, just walk to head of road and it's a main Baht Bus route into town. Alternatively it's only about 20 mins walking to hit the nightlife in the centre. Room was extremely good and clean as it's quite a new hotel. Rooftop pool was great. Breakfast was a disappointment, some items had obviously been put out for several days and were crusting over. Nothing was hot and a request for a couple of hot fried eggs resulted in some 'discussion' about what was wrong with the 16 ice cold fried eggs already out! I don't expect that from staff. I'd probably stay again but not include breakfast, there's enough places within a couple of minutes walk for that. The staff seemed disinterested in general, not rude but gave impression they'd rather continue chatting amongst themselves and guests were a hindrance to that. It was comfortable and clean, and if the service was pepped up it would be an excellent hotel.

Room Tip: 7th floor is just a set of stairs from the rooftop pool.

This hotel is brand new and locate in "Na Klua" or "North Pattaya" area. It's not close to main road,need to walk for 5 mins from hotel. I'm not recomend you to walk from hotel to main road alone in night time.Mostly I always see foreign tourist walk in group.

Room is big and clean, 2 bed inside (staff told me that they offer extra bed for Chinese tour group) Free wifi,Free parking,Flat Tv. and free drinking water.

This hotel is not close to the beach,need to walk for 800-900 metr from hotel.

However,staff are good service mind. Not many choice for breakfast but taste good.

Don't forget to visit swimming pool on roof,last time I go there it's still underconstruction...so sad.

Firstly location: From the Dusit Thani Circle go up the Naklua Road about 1/3 mile then turn left opposite Ayiala Hotel. Down that road about 250 yards on the left.
We had a De Luxe room which was spacious and contained a fridge, flat screen tv, large walk in shower, Double bed, single bed and balcony. Aircon of course.
The fridge stayed on all the time and so we were able to have ice on hand for late night drinks although it has to be said the ice box was very small, but enough for 3 - 4 ice trays.
The room was bright and modern and well serviced by a very friendly chambermaid, who always had a smile for the guests.
Breakfast was included in the price and had a large selection of food including fruit, cereals and thai food but there was a limited selection for Western tastes, but the chef was happy to prepare me an omlette when i asked. Like most Thai hotels I have stayed at, the cooked food was mostly left to get cold even though at this hotel there were burners under the food storage hoppers but they were not often lit. Cold fried eggs are not to my taste! But overall the breakfast was reasonable value.
My only other concern with this hotel was the WiFi which could not be trusted and kept going on and off at different times during the day. My partner, a local Pattaya lady told me that the WiFi Company concerned did have a reputation for not delivering a 100% reliable service. Mostly this was ok for checking e mail and occasional surfing but for the business traveller who needs 100% reliable WiFi this could be a problem. I did intend at one stage to buy airline tickets online but obviously with the relatively large amount of money involved, i decided against it, due to the risk of the WiFi connection failing at a sensitive part of the transactions.
There is a safe in each room, a good size, big enough for a lap top. I did manage to break my safe combination lock for a short time but the reception were happy to lend me the safe key until my safe was fixed but although i handed back the key to reception, when i got back to England I heard from the Hotel that they could not find the key and wanted me to send it back ! So be warned, get a receipt if the same thing happens to you!
There is a 15 metre swimming pool on the 8th and top floor of the hotel which i would highly recommend, the water was very warm and always spotlessly clean and had a good selection of loungers.
Overall I would certainly recommend this hotel, good value, staff all charming, friendly and happy to help with any problems. The only reason for me not giving the hotel 5 stars is the internet problem.

Room Tip: As far as i could make out all the room face the same direction and are of the same standard.
