Hotel is far from the city centre on top of the hill, walking distance from the Big Buddha, and to local shops (7-11). Check in staff were very friendly and nice, room was very modest, not much to write home about but ok for the night. The room I was placed into had no remotes for tv or a/c, asked if I wanted to be changed down the hall,room not as cold, but remotes. Asked manager to look for remotes while I was gone to city exploring; returned hours later to new female clerk, who tried to tell me I couldn't move, but also didn't understand english all that well, luckily the day clerk came back and had no problem with me switching rooms at that time (730pm).
Computer in front lobby charged 20baht per hour (not bad,less than 1 dollar), breakfast was in beautiful courtyard below, also very minimal but pleasant.
Since hotel is basically in the middle of nowhere so to speak,I would have (if had to do it over), I would have picked a hotel in city centre, where you can walk right outside to the husdtle bustle of any big city life, BUT that's you're preference of course. Remote in country setting or city,I say what I say because when I travel to a place I've never been to I would like to know where actually I'm staying and what's around me to do and see. Your call! Still very nice beach town to go and check out, less than 2 hours from Bangkok. Use Pattaya van out of Victory monumnet, only 97 baht each way, that's about 3 usd, can't beat it!
