I have now stayed at Areca two times. It has great pools, great staff, clean rooms and the Thai food in the restaurant is decent. The rooms are a bit dated, but they are spotless and have an in-room safe and good closet space. Unfortunately, they only have bathtubs, which suck if you're a shower person -- but for that price, I can't complain.

As it's on Soi Diana Inn, there's everything you need within walking distance -- or a short song taew ride if you need to go shopping at Central etc. The only problem I had in both stays is that the Internet in the rooms was a bit weak or impossible to connect at times. I usually had to go down to the coffee shop to get a reliable connection. So if working from your room is important, this isn't the place to be. If, on the other hand, you want to chill by the pools (there are two), have a run on the treadmill (no aircon, but a great treadmill. Better than the one at my gym in Japan), hit the bars and restaurants on 2nd road, Soi Diana Inn, Soi LK Metro or Soi Buakhaow, then this is the place for you.

Room Tip: There is construction going on on several sides of the hotel, so asking for a room that doesn't...

I've just finished my fourth stay at The Areca. The rooms in the older Areca wing have been refurbished and are looking great. The buffet breakfast is consistently very good, and the staff, as always, were friendly and helpful.

Stopped here last year,still a great location but the rooms are a little tired,the rooms are quite and cleaned daily.
But a splash of paint wouldn't go a miss for what you pay. Also bachelor friendly.

Being walking past this hotel for 5 years, finally spend 10 nights with my golf tour. Rooms were great but very small balconies. Everything worked and the staff were fantastic, bright and friendly. If you want to be close to the night life this is the location as Soi Metro is just a minute away. The two pools and gyms are a bonus and the foyer and breakfast areas are light and breezy. Overall the staff from front desk to the pool boy were fantastic and look out for Da the breakfast waitress, always a smile and time to yak yak.
We'll be back next year!

Room Tip: Try and face the small front pool as they are away from the construction zone and have larger balcon...

This was my first time at this hotel, a very pleasant experience, will certainly stay there again if I return to Pattaya.
The staff are very polite and helpful, I had just the basic room, and it was clean and well kept, only thing we did miss was a kettle and tea making facilities in the room, but if you have the next step up to Deluxe room, that is included.
Two nice pools, and a good restaurant with reasonable priced food.
Would recommend this hotel

I've stayed at this hotel many times during my trips to Pattaya. This hotel has everything that I would want in a hotel plus with an excellant that is always smiling and very helpful. The rooms are always cleaned, mini fridge is stocked and you get two bottles of water per day. Plus the location in my opinion is the best because you're close to everything.
