This guesthouse is located just off Beach Road Soi 3 and for me represents excellent value. Not only are the rooms well equipped (I was upgraded at no extra charge for my stay) but Roger (the business owner) and his staff went out of their way to make me feel really welcome and at home, something no other guesthouse has really done. Roger also spent a lot of time talking to me about the best places to visit and even accompanied me to a few of them - I learned a lot from him, which other business owner does that?
My room (R1) was very large and had all the regular hotel amenities, Aircon, decent wifi, 32" TV with good reception, fridge and minibar, sofa and small room safe along with a huge and new bed. The staff also supplied extra towels and pillows at my request, they were all very discreet and non judgemental.
Rogers staff cook a huge English breakfast and supplies English Tea, something they are keen to promote. If you want to bring your lunch or dinner you can do so and eat it on their tables in the bar. BTW they do not do pancakes ;-) but there is plenty of bottled ice cold beer.
Jav (not sure of the spelling) cleans the rooms and she will do your laundry within 8 hours if you tell her by 10am, way better than the 24 hour service offering you get outside the bar and a service I made good use of, given the very humid weather this time of year.
The location is excellent, close to the infamous Soi 6 and a few other areas of note, that said I did hire a motorbike and they had no problem with me parking it outside the guesthouse. There is a 7-ll, a pharmacy, money changer and several bars and proper massage shops within a stones throw. Despite the proximity to the nightlife it was a very quiet area, something very important to me.
This business is based in some older buildings so do not expect everything to work (e.g some of the lights and curtains) and to look like new but I am being very picky.
For sheer service, value for money and the so "at home" feeling I cannot think of anywhere else I would book again, this is my 6th trip to Pattaya and my 6th accommodation, I will not hesitate to call or email Roger and his staff first when I plan to come back.
