Budget Hotel in Pattaya Apr 19, 2012
We had planned this trip which was to take us to Pattaya for the weekend & then on to Vietnam on a bag packing kind of experience keeping the budget as low as possible . We were thus looking for hotels that would offer decent & clean accommodation to crash for the night at the lowest possible price .
Found this hotel on booking.com at a fairly low price of about 900 baht ( about 30 USD ) per night inclusive of breakfast . The hotel was located on one of the inner streets of Pattaya .. a little far from the Pattaya beach & the happening Walking street of pattaya even though the hotel claimed it to be half a mile from both .. was not really true.
The hotel is pretty average in terms of the quality of the building and decor . The room size is also average with plain walls devoid of any decor . It consisted of a bed , two chairs and a coffee table . There was a colour television , a mini bar with an attached bathroom so I guess pretty much okay for the price of the hotel .
They even have a small pool and a poolside bar which for a 3 star hotel at that price is an added advantage for sure that you might not find at other hotels at the same price . They had a cafe / restaurant on the ground floor where they served breakfast & you could order a meal or coffee if you really didnt want to go out .
Even though it was far from the most happening areas of pattaya , if you rent a bike it aint dificult to reach those places since pattaya is quite small in that manner . The street itself had a lot of bars & restaurants where one could walk out and spend an evening with some music , drinks and food .
The biggest downside of the hotel is their staff which is pretty much on the rude side with no concept of being in the hospitality sector . Even if you are a hotel guest , you got to pay cash for anything ordered at the cafe or pool and they would not put it on your room . We wanted to use the internet in the lobby which was for 100 baht for 24 hours but they wouldnt let you use it till you paid them the money in advance .
I would say if you looking for budget accommodation with no frills and just need a place to crash for the night ... you could go for it .. don't expect anything else in terms of service or assistance from the hotel staff !!!! Pattaya is anyways a place to be outdoors 24 x 7 .... its a party town .. so just have fun outside :))
