Have stayed at the Eastern Grand Palace a few times now.This time was,April (Son Kran) Had previously been staying in the centre at the Areca Hotel (see my review).Moved up to the Eastern for a few nights to get away from the pandemonium in Pattaya Central for the Son Kran and to have easy access to the motorway as Pattaya can come to a standstill over the Son Kran Festival
.The Hotel has over 300 rooms.I had a lovely room on the 11 th floor for 1,400 baht which you can negotiate on, if your staying for a week or more
The room itself was quite spacious,really nicely decorated and had a beautiful wooden floor with Air con, TV satelite,and a fabulous bed.
There is also a bar (The White Horse) in the Car Park.
They seem to have a lot of tour Groups from Korea and China etc,who depart during the day and you seem to have the Hotel facilities more or less to yourself (see my photos of the pool etc) beside the pool there is a very sparcely fitted Gym.
The Hotel is situated Half a km off Sukhumvit(3) in Soi Katalo,which is the opposite side of Sukhumvit from Pattaya.The Beach and Walking Street,etc being about 4-5 km away.If your a train enthusiast there is Pattaya Tai train station,well platform really, about 200 metre from the hotel which runs to Bangkok once a day (except weekends) which takes about 4 and a half hours and cost 31 baht.
The hotel is well away from the Pattaya thing,and quite suitable for families.You would however need transport as there is not a lot to do once your outside the hotel.There is however a 7/11 supermarket and Tesco Express about a 5 minute walk from the hotel and there is also a bigger Tesco and shopping mall about a km away which is not an easy walk as you have to cross Sukhumvit.
