“Cannot Sleep here - It's a shame”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

It';s a shame because the rooms are actually very nice. I had a 1 BR suite and it was large and comfortable with great in room amenities. Unfortunately, you cannot escape the noise from the clubs and it went on til well past 4am every night I was there. Luckily for me I had brought a set of Noise cancelling headphones for the plane ride, otherwise I would not have gotten any sleep.

Service here is hit and miss, depends on who is working. Seems like the place could be a little bit more professional. Some staff struggled more than others with English and more complicated requests were met with blank stares.

On my last day, I was waiting for my ride out on their lovely terrace, so I had about 20 minutes. I ordered some coffee. It took forever and the coffee did not show up until my shuttle bus pulled up. Did they apologize for being late? No Did they offer to give to me to go? No. The waiter just stood in from of me and demanded 80 baht.

Sometimes it's these small things that leave a lasting impression.

Will not be back

Middle of too noisy Gay Bar street. When I checked out they tried to charge me 550 Bath (18 USD) because they told me the bed sheets were dirty. After I asked to show me the bed sheet they told me they already trowed in the bin...

Room Tip: If you are Gay and like to go out this is the place to be but be carefully for the bed sheet scam.

The hotel is located just three minutes walk from Walking Street and it was convenient. The staff was helpful, the room was spacious, WiFi had no problem and cost per night was 50 euro per night. The performance on cost was good. The minor issue was this hotel is just in a small gay town, and my friend (man) and myself were misunderstood as gay friends. It was not dangerous though....

This was the first time I stayed at this hotel. The staff are accommodating and the location is outstanding. The hotel is part of a larger complex that includes a show club which can be VERY loud. I had a room just above the venue and could not go to sleep before 2 AM. If you are out in the party ( which a lot of people are ) then that is no problem. I will stay here on my next trip to Pattaya.

Room Tip: Based on the relative cost difference, get a room on the top two floors. The rooms are larger and t...

For a single traveler, the Ambiance is a perfect solution. The staff is friendly, helpful and eager to make sure that your stay is enjoyable. The patio dining is great for people-watching and making the acquaintance of other tourists. The Penthouse has a sitting room as well as a bedroom. Both are equipped with wide screen televisions. The hotel is very well maintained and clean and the maid service first-rate. The reason that they did not receive all five stars is the size and layout of the shower. It is a bit small and the glass door opens inward which makes entering/leaving a tight squeeze. WiFi was strong. They even provide you with an umbrella for those unexpected showers. Recommended.

Room Tip: Penthouse suites very comfortable.

Just back from 19 days at the Ambiance and what a delight. I had a deluxe room on top floor with terrace, clean, spacious, all the facilities one could ask for.
The staff from Marcus and Michael to reception, lounge and housekeeping cannot be faulted.
This was my home away from home and I was sad to leave but will return ASAP !!

Room Tip: Top floor has a lovely terrace to sit on in the evening after a hard day at the beach !

Very nice hotel which has on-site restaurant and gym. I had a deluxe room and it is an excellent value. Room service was very quick and it available until 2 am daily. The attached gym offers massages either in one of their rooms or your own. Cheapest prices I have seen and best massage I had in Pattaya. The masseurs sit on the patio in front of the gym and definitely add to the scenery. They have a patio on the ground floor where one can sit and watch the comings and goings of Boys Town. Good drink prices and you will not be bothered by bar boys. It is centrally located to all the entertainment in Pattaya and the staff is very friendly and helpful.

I do want to point out that on weekend nights, the music from surrounding clubs can be heard in the room, especially the bass. While it didn't bother me, if one isn't prepared for it, it could be annoying. The surrounding clubs wind down around 2:30 am.

Everything is within walking distance (or a baht bus) from the hotel. They do allow overnight guests.

Room Tip: A deluxe room has a king bed, table with chairs, and a love seat. The bathroom has a walk in shower...
