In one word, excellent. Right from check in to check out, hassle free smoothness is the experience. Located conveniently on the main tourist street of Pattaya, only 5 minutes or less walk to beach. If you get a sea view room above 4th or 5th floor, you can see the sea. Currently construction is going on just behind the hotel, but sound is not a major issue if you get a room towards city view. My advise is take a city view room to avoid noise and walk to the beach. Hotel staff was also kind enough to advise me that.
Breakfast area at the "Tate of Thailand" restaurant is wonderful, with variety of spread. Noodles, soup, fried rice, pancakes, french tosts, chicken and pork sausages, 3 types of juice, toasts, fried eggs, cereal, fresh blue berry muffins, fruit salads, sauted veggies, sauted tomatoes and potatoes. The rooms, the standard double ones are a bit narrow, but should not have a problem. Room includes hair dryer, water kettle, mini fridge, 2 bottles of complimentary water and coffee. One double bed another single bed. TV has few channels , but you are not going there to watch TV.
You have to deposit 2000 THB as security deposit if you have paid in advance, and you will get the money back at the time of check out provided you do not break anything. There is no mini bar, that is nothing inside the fridge. The bathrooms contains separate glass door shower area and basin and comod area.
The swimming pool is in the backside, nice and spacious, and have sitting areas beside the pool with coffee table where you can smoke also. For smokers, no smoking inside the hotel, if you do not want to lose that 2000 THB. Get outside the hotel for smoke.
Many massage parlours beside , with in 2-10 minutes walking distance. One go go bar is there as well for the late nighters, just 1 minute walk from the hotel, Lisa bar. 7-11 is also right around the corner. But believe me, none of these sounds get to the hotel as the hotel is end of a wide drive-way from the main street, so no noise or disturbances from the vibrant pattaya night life.
Pattaya is a nice city, full of excitement and activities to do. You should walk around to explore. Tiffany/s alcazar show is just again about 5 minutes walk from the hotel. You should walk to the beach and sit beside the waves and enjoy. Take a trip to coral island, do paragliding (500THB) and underwater walking (1200 THB). You can contact hotel also for the tours. The hotel has a nice bar with decent rates where you can sit and sip alcohol and watch TV.
All in all, great hotel, excellent staff members, excellent location, and very decent rates. Oh I forgot, for food lovers, taste street thai foot. Just opposite of the hotel, Sohotown is there where 5-6 different street vendors are there. Various types of Pad thai, mixed seafood dishes, rice and pork curries available. Much cheaper that restaurant (ranging from 40THB to 100 THB) compared to 200 in restaurant. Excellent taste. Also dont forget to see art illusion museum, biggest of its kind in world, just opposite to hotel again. Open 9 am - 9pm, 300THB entry fee.
Do not hesitate to book here. Thanks a lot to all members of IBIS pattaya hotel
