A A Pattaya Hotel
Ranked #351 of 466 Hotels in Pattaya
Reviewed 18 January 2012

I usually stay here because of the central location whenever I stay for 1 or max 2 nights. Even though right in the middle of everything, the hotel is fairly quiet. Rooms are old and furnished very basic. Some of the rooms have a great view onto the bay. Basically, you get what you pay for. The average rate at the reception is 1000 THB in the high season, which seems to be somewhat standard in Pattaya, while I heard that there is better places available for the price while not that centrally located. No in room safes but safe deposit boxes are available at the reception. The beach in the high season is everything but nice and clean. Packed up with beach chairs and sun covers all the way to the water line. Bottom line: Good budget hotel for short stays at a central location but not suited for families or a long term beach vacation.

Room Tip: Try to get the corner rooms with the view onto the bay.

I chose this hotel based on its location, price - which allowed us to book a seaview suite - and the view of the beach from the pool area. The first day or two after arriving we wrent sure we had made a wise decision and considered moving but in the end the pros outweighed the cons as far as we were concerned. However this is NOT a hotel for families or for a couple looking for a romantic holiday. It is budget accomodation with a brilliant location and views.
I am going to post pictures so you will be able to see that the hotel is rather 'tired' in some areas. Indeed areas like the carpets in the passages and the pool lounger cushions are in a very bad condition. Our bathroom also was somewhat mismatched and the towels in the room were threadbare (and limited to one per person.)
But that aside - the room was spacious and clean (if in need of some paint). The pool did deliver the view (altho no shade from about 1-30pm). Breakfasts were well presented and for 75 Baht you got two fried eggs, 2 pieces of toast, bacon, jam, coffee and orange juice.
The guests were primarily men, some on their own, some with their Thai ladies. We were two western ladies travelling together but didnt feel unwelcome in any way.
Basically we found you get what you pay for - and in terms of location, room (not bathroom) and views - we were satisfied with our choice. Most of the staff were very obliging but this is more likely family run than anything and the facilities and services are not based on what you find in hotel chains. For example - not only wasnt there a hairdryer in the room - there wasnt one to borrow from reception. (No safes in the room either but that is probably not going to be a deciding factor - there are safety deposit boxes downstairs.)
There is one lift - looking a little sad, but it did its job and with rooms to the 7th floor at least - its very necessary.

Room Tip: The suites are very spactious but the rooms themselves didnt look cramped. They may have been redone...

Most staff are very helpfull and polite. The rooms are a decent size and very close to the action. Hotel does not charge for additional guests, so thats great. For £20 or so, you cant go too wrong. However, there are no in room safes which did complicate things.
I am travelling back to thailand and plan to use this hotel again.

I travelled with 7 of my friends and stayed for 10 nights. Previously I have been in pattaya 24 timesover 14 years and stayed at many hotels. My friends and I all agree we had a fantastic stay and would definitely go back next time. No cockroaches were seen during our stay. In house room and food service was enjoyable. The rooms have been repainted and refurbished. Value for money, no doubt. Fantastic sea view rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful in all many ways. Congratulations A.A Pattaya hotel. See you soon.

Unbeatable beachfront location in the heart of everything and the most wonderful, trustworthy, helpful, and friendly staff (from front office, bellmen, and housekeeping) you could ever desire. However, there is a fatal flaw to this property. It is overrun with cockroaches. Although there is monthly professional pest control, the adult and baby roaches are everywhere, and they are present in large numbers on ALL floors and ALL rooms. I got tired of smushing the dozen or so cockroaches about the room every time upon entering, so I would capture them in a wad of toilet paper and give them a spiraling raft ride down the commode, and eventually progressed to blowing them one by one with a puff of air from my lungs from the bathroom vanity into the commode like a field goal kicker. The pillows smelled like an ashtray. This hotel is WAY overdue for a renovation. It needs all mattresses replaced and a serious, serious fumigation during a short term property shutdown. Current pest control measures do nothing as the spraying isn't reaching their lairs in the ceilings and walls. I was worried about transporting roach eggs back with me on personal effects. Beautiful 4th floor seaview swimming pool that is tiny and the water is cloudy. Black mold is pervasive on the grout of the shower tub walls. English TV channel availability is pitiful compared to nearby hotels. This is the cheapest hotel on soi 13 and for a little more you could do better.

I visit Pattaya every year and have stayed in a number of hotels but in all honesty for location and price this hotel is hard to beat the staff are very helpfull and within a few days greet you by first name whenever they meet you,the rooms are kept cleen and changed daily the A/C works but each room look out over the sea so there is a nice breeze if you dont like it,it has a small pool in the third floor and loungers for sun bathing you can get food or the terrace or in your room but above all you are in the heart of the beach/town my only critisism is the lift small and slow and only one,but for me its the only place I will stay, Terry

Rude low class staff, not a "Thai experience." Old Hotel, needs to be updated if they are going to charge those prices.
