We stayed at the Areca for 10 days and overall it was a nice enough hotel for the money we paid,approx 2000 Bhat per night.The room was very clean and staff also were very friendly.The one thing I think let's the hotel down is the breakfast,to be honest it's not great but for 2000 Bhat a night I was not expecting too much.
The location of the hotel is good and yes I would stay there again but only at the price we paid,I would not pay any more for it.

I stay at Areca Lodge every time i am in Pattaya, and have been here twice since my last review. Clearly they take people's reviews seriously as all my previous issues seem to have been addressed. The staff at reception have been extremely helpful and accommodating, this time especially so as i arrived without a booking, and they helped me find 2 rooms in the hotel during this busy time. They happily provided a second room key for my partner, which previously was difficult to obtain. Connecting to the WIFI has also been simplified, with it previously being a very painful affair, and as always the rooms are very clean.

Room Tip: Try a book a room in the Evergreen building, as it is the more modern of the 3 buildings. Also they...

A group of 18 male club members used Areca as a base for a golf trip to Pattaya. The hotel is comfortable, if fairly basic. The new building at the back has more modern rooms (stayed in the last night due to our mixup) but they are a long hike from the street. The position is good for accessing most of the entertainment aspects of Pattaya, though a bit of a trip down to Walking Street if that is your thing. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful, the gym was adequate (though could do with aircon) and breakfasts were fine. We were there at the end of the wet season and a couple of evening storms saw the main street in front of the hotel flooded up to your knees (for those game enough to walk amongst the debris - you know what I mean). The good golf courses are between 30 and 50 minutes away and it is close to two hours to the new Bangkok airport, with traffic fairly heavy most of the time.

Room Tip: In the original lodge, ask for a room close to lifts and overlooking the pool.

Dear Metceni,

Thank you very much for your comment, look you're surprised to see flooded road. I would like to explain a little bit for that because the road in front of hotel very small and narrow so the underground pipes for water flow is small too. In case that we have hard rain they will flooded in this area but after few hours after water drain to underground pipe it will be back to normal.
Anyhow, please accept my apologize for this inconvenience that make you trouble and looking forward to welcome you back again at Areca Lodge.

Best regards,
Udomsin, S.

This was my 3rd stay at the Areca Lodge Hotel. Comfortable room overlooking the larger of the 2 pools. It has a reasonable gym although lacks a rowing machine. I was very impressed with the helpfulness of the staff and they were always smiling! The hotel is in a great central location with plenty of restuarants and bars on your door step. I had to cut my stay short due to a famliy illness and they kindly waived the fee for the last day - thank you. Highly recommended.

Located just off the second road in the city, the areca lodge provides a welcome alternative to the cheap jack hotels that litter this city.
The reception is welcoming, rooms are clean and spacious and the food provided is on the better end of the scale.
The location is fine if you need to stay in an area contaminated with low quality beer bars jammed packed with bar girls all seemingly intent in attending to your needs.
That said, once past the reception, you are in a well managed hotel that boasts two nice pools with plenty of chairs and attentive staff.
Ok, its a bit more expensive than some other places but heyho - you get what you pay for in pattaya and money can buy pretty much anything here.
