“Cannot Satisfy Everyone”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2009

I have recently returned from a 28 night trip to Pattaya Thailand. Before leaving the UK I reviewed a number of hotels and made a temporary reservation at one. Upon arrival in Pattaya I went to see the hotel and after looking at a number of rooms decided it was not for me.

I then decided to go and have a look at the 18 Coins Hotel which I must admit did not have very good reviews. However after looking at a number of rooms and negotiating a price of 425 Baht per night decided to stay at 18 Coins.

I must say that some refurbishment is needed especially in the bathroom where the grouting needs some attention but not a lot, and there are signs that refurbisment is an on going process.

The rooms were very clean and tidy, did not have any bad smell or odours which had been mentioned in one or two of the reviews, bedding was changed evry single day as indeed were the towels as for cockroaches, beetles flies etc there was NO sign of anything like this going on.

I do not look for Luxury accomodation but do expect a certain standard which I felt the 18 Coins did have and would certainly consider staying here again. Some people I suppose must go on holiday looking for 5 Star accomodation at 2 Star prices over all I felt it was good value for the money paid.

With regards to the manager of the bar and restaurant this has nothing to do with the hotel it is run independantly, and the staff once you got to know them were very helpful, cheerful and smiling and nothing was too much for them to help you, and the manager well if he enjoys a few beers in the afternoon surely it is up to him especially if it does not offend or upset the customers and the atmosphere over all was very good.

Overall a very good stay would reccomend to friends.

18 Coins Pattaya Soi Bukhao worst in Pattaya.

Avoid this hotel its bug infested be warned you will get bit its just the matter when .
Manager always drunk and abusive , and the staff must be the most unfriendly and dishonest in all Pattaya.
Too noisy all day also food way too expensive and bland .
Seems like a chav hotel where politeness is very rare.
Many , Many better hotels out there just avoid this one.
