A A Pattaya Hotel
Ranked #362 of 455 Hotels in Pattaya
Reviewed 4 March 2009

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.

I stayed at the AA Pattaya Hotel (the one closest to Beach Road) for several months. Although it was not the nicest hotel in Pattaya it was a very good hotel. I never had one thing come up missing and all the services were very acceptable. The front desk personnel were super nice and I had a great time staying in Pattaya. The maids and wait staff were excellent and always helpful. While I was there they were updating the Carpeting in several of the rooms and the hotel sprayed for insects regularly.(As is the case in tropical climates) When I return to Pattaya I will try to stay at AA again. The Jewelry Store there is very nice also. Ican't remember everyone's name that worked in the Hotel but they were all very nice people.

Dear reader,

I recently stayed at the named hotel with two other friends and may I say this is a hotel to be avoided at all costs. I stayed at this hotel for a period of eight days and when I arrived the staff were pleasent explained everything to us. However, as days went on we began to have poor experiences of this place which changed are view. While Pattaya is known for its wild nights there were certain standards that were unacceptable.

Firstly I noticed very young girls less than 16 years of age being let in with elderly men in their rooms for the obvious reasons. Although this is illegal this hotel seemed to have overlooked this matter for its regular customers. This was very sickening with gave me a bitter taste of this hotel. I informed the hotel staff who said that it happens and that they had to look after their customers and often ignore what goes on.

As days went on I found that hotel room was infested with tiny red ants and insects and on part of the room I found a nest. I was refused a refund or another room and had to pay the cleaner extra on the side to remove the nest.

Few days later I had my safe key stolen by the staff which was kept in a hidden place inside the room. It did not occur to me why someone would do this as there was a clear record of who accessed the safe. When i informed the staff at the hotel i was told that I had to pay 3000 Bahts for a replacement key. I had no choice but to pay this as I was threatened with police if i did not pay. My friend the following day also found his key taken and he to had paid 3000 baht. The pattern became very obvious. The cleaners and staff tend to take the key and the staff then charge the guests for the money which they pocket and once the guest leaves they make the key available again for the next guest. My friend speaks the language but the staff were unaware of this and he heard the conversation in my presence as they laughed at us thinking that we did not know. One staff said this is a regular earner!

My last experience was when i gave in clothes for laundry and found that they had shrunk when they were returned to me. These were very expensive socks and garments and when I asked to be compensated for the damage I was told that they would not do it but will not charge me for the laundry. When i said this was unacceptable I was told that they would call the police and ensure that I do not board my plane the following day which I clearly could not afford to do.

People I would avoid this hotel at every costs and more so if you have a family. Do not keep your safe key in the room or give anything for laundry. It is not worth it as there as much cheaper and nice hotels around closer to walking street. Thank you for taking time to read this and i hope it benefits you.
