I arrived into Pattaya quite late and this place had rooms advertised fro 950B a night - very good I thought for Pattaya. The lobby is very nice and the staff very polite. I was taken to the room which I can only described as adequate. Nothing wrong with the room, but was very basic and a little rough around the edges. Great choice of TV channels, cheap mini bar too.
The next morning we were woken up early by the hotel staff (despite having gone out for drinks until quite late the previous night). They told us we had to move room - they had booked the room we were in and the only other room they had was going to be 1250B. Now it seemed quite plain to me that the hotel was not full up at all. I was extremely annoyed about being forced out into another room with no warning and obvious monetary benefit for themselves. The whole situation was ridiculous.
On many nights we went out, and wanting a lie in next day, left the DO NOT DISTURB sign on the door. It is quite clear, in English and Thai. Despite this EVERY MORNING we were forced to get up when the cleaner banged on the door incessantly. If we ignored the banging, they rang the phone. If we unplugged the phone, they came back up and pounded on our door until we were forced to get up and explain to them that we did not want them to clean our room. This totally ruined our stay.
This is a shame because the hotel had a really great pool, and is right in the middle of Pattaya beach road - a fabulous location. The food looked great too, although I have to admit we never tried it.
Just a shame they dont know how to treat guests who dont want their room cleaned early every morning.
If I go back to Pattaya I would 100% not stay here again and would look elsewhere.
