“great location and rooms”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

i had put up in this hotel for 2 nights and found it to be pretty good, its location has to be one of the best things about it and the fact that it is newly built and equipped with modern amenities is a plus...
i personally had no trouble with the hotel staff and/ or service but then i did make too much use of them, if i go back to Pattaya i would definitely check into this hotel again.. 5 stars from me

Room Tip: i was put up in the 3rd floor and can assure you that they were good, unfortunately can't say mu...

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

I booked at 900 thb & received an upgrade to a 'superior tower room". the building is brand new & modern. the rooms are well equipped but very small (less than 50m). oppresively small after a few days.

the hotel has 3 swimming pools but all 3 are virtually useless - they are all very small & permanenetly full of Inidan men drinking beer & splashing each other.

the service during my staff was poor. the reception staff were less than helpful & verging on incompetent. i speak thai so the communication was not the cause, they appeared to be understaffed or confused due to the on going renovations.

the internet in the room was very poor quality & unstable. not LAN as advertised but a unstable wifi.

there was no night time security which is very unusual in Pattaya (lots of overnight guests)

overall I wouldn't stay again especially as the rack rate for the room was 1,600 bht.

lots of good bars nearby though

This hotel has a super location in central Pattaya Beach. The room on the 9th floor in the tower was fine with the exception of low water pressure & no hot water in the shower most of the time! The hotel has a high tech green hot water recovery system....but they need to get their money back as it does not work!!! We never sampled the buffet breakfast as it was just priced way too high compared to the many restaurants in the area! The room air conditioner worked well except that it was extremely noisey when the fan was turned to low! The room was also very noisy on most nights due to the many Bands & Kareoke Bars in the immediate area. The front office staff was mostly helpful but appeared overworked & understaffed, so they seemed annoyed or uninterested at most questions! But with all its warts, I'll return for a future stay!

Room Tip: You might have better luck with the water pressure, & even hotter water if you stay below the 8t...

Had a small room in new building this time. Room okay. But very noisy from hallway. Have hotel staff running around with walkie talkie 0700 in morning and wake up people. So forget to sleep more than this.
This hotel have also some travel deal with a Indian company. 50-60% people stay hotel come from there. They having problem even to get out of the elevator....
Would never come back to this hotel. Much better choices around soi 7-8

Okay lets start by saying leave your kids and teenagers at home. This area is suited for partying adults. Located smack in the centre of all the action of the bars and clubs. Just a short trip to the shopping centres and the famous walking street. The Hotel itself is well priced and strictly a place to rest after a hard days partying. Don't expect 5 star accomodation here. Having said that, it is a neat hotel with a good swimming pool to hang out by. The rooms were average at best and the shower was clean. The big plus was its location to everything, the beach, bars, shops. I will be back.

Hotel ideally situated on Soi 8, close to the Central Mall. Convenient to go to either north or south Pattaya. Noisy at night due to active night life in area. Transportation easily accessible, as well as a great number of restaurants. Hotel has restaurant, but a little pricey.

Embaraasing location. Not for family with kids. For couples its ok. But if you have teen kids. Pls avoid.All Pubs, bars nearby. Lot of disturbance. Rooms are clean and tidy. Market place and beach is nearby. Just walkable.

Room Tip: Choose a room on higher floor.
