“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

Currently staying at Areca Lodge, in the Evergreen Building, room is spotless and big enough , great balcony overlooking the pool area, breakfast is adequate with different choices each morning.
Hotel is situated in Soi Diana , but set back from the road and very quiet. There is construction happening close by but once the room door is shut it is quiet. only a few minutes walk to Central Festival , the beach and Mikes Department Store.
Lots of restaurants and bars in the vicinity.Hotel is movers reasonably priced, staff helpful and friendly, will definitely return here.

I have stayed at this hotel many times and will do so again. The staff are polite,helpful and smiling. The cleaning lady really appreciates a tip. My room in the Corona building with balcony was at the end of the corridor overlooking the pool and was quiet.
The breakfast was good, with eggs cooked to order.
In the vicinity there is an English restaurant with an English menu and cooks homemade chips. Not far away is Central Festival in there is MK Restaurant that spcialises in roast duck, delicious.
It is within walking distance to the beach.

Everyy thing is good but I dont know why this is racist specially for asian countries. I have stayed 3 times in last 3 years and found it a nice place to stay in pattaya good security and nice staff to assist you all the time. The spa is good and nice pool. Breakfast ok overall nice. This year I plan pattaya visit in December looking forward to stay areca lodge again.

The Areca is the ideal hotel if you are looking for somewhere that is clear, safe, central, friendly, reliable but not expensive. There always seems to be a mix of visitors and I have never had a problem that was not instantly solved.

I have stayed in hotels all over Thailand and several in Bangkok and Pattaya. For sheer value for money the Areca Lodge takes some beating. It is a solid 4 star hotel, and everything about the place is praiseworthy. The rooms are spacious, with large balconies and everything works well. The breakfast (included) is more than adequate, the pool is pleasant and rarely overcrowded and, the best part of all, the staff are totally welcoming and helpful.

The hotel is situated close to the centre of Pattaya, a few minutes from the beach and well-served by local amenities, supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars. Everything is within easy walking distance (beach, Walking Street, Shopping malls, Hard Rock Cafe). There are cheaper hotels in Pattaya, but none can compare with Areca's basic honest approach, easy-going nature and affordability. The staff are, without exception, friendly and flexible and after several stays I would not want to back to the so-called branded hotels which can cost as much as double or more.

The hotel is not at all seedy and suits families, business travellers and single fun-seekers alike. There is a mix of local Thais and foreigners as guests. It works extremely well.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Evergreen annex. Recommended

i have stayed at the areca lodge in February 2013 late check out no problems, nice place, the pools are geat, staff are friendly, breakfast buffet is good, rooms are clean and quiet i think my biggest complaint is the construction site next door. If you relax at the pool area it can be very noise sometimes. I will come back in January 2014
