Citin Garden Resort
Ranked #230 of 456 Hotels in Pattaya
Reviewed September 15, 2012

We stayed at the Citin Garden Resort for five nights and enjoyed a relaxing and very comfortable stay. The hotel is largely well maintained and attractive and is surrounded by a relatively small, yet very well manicured, garden. The hotel is let down slightly by its elevator- it looks somewhat beaten up, the doors seem to barely move and the whole thing clanks while in operation. A minor detail yet I found myself opting for the stairs just in case!

The room was of a good size (spacious yet cosy), simply yet tastefully decorated and was in a good state of cleanliness upon arrival. The bed is large and comfortable.

The room was equipped with aircon, a flat screen TV (many channels although few in English-admittedly in a foreign country this is to be expected), fridge, tea and coffee making facilities plus en suite bathroom. The bathroom was tastefully decorated and featured a "rain" plus standard shower. Wifi in the rooms is excellent.

The pool area is comfortable and features many reclining chairs. Very clean and tidy. There is a seating area adjacent to a bar and the kitchens which prepare a wide range of dishes which were very reasonably priced and very tasty.

Service in general was very good with a friendly welcome. However in this respect the hotel is somewhat let down by inconsistency- occasionally service was somewhat frosty and the staff seemed confused or surprised at the fact that they were being spoken to/asked something. This was rare however and we received excellent service, particularly from those in the poolside bar/restaurant. Unfortunately our last night at the hotel was spoiled slightly as the restaurant and pool area had been let out to a private function preventing other guests from using it. This completely dashed our plans for a relaxing evening in the pool followed by dinner in the restaurant and no notice was provided either when booking, in the meantime or in the days leading up to the function.

The location may be considered by some to be far from the main attractions of Pattaya but this is really no issue as a songthaew can be hailed almost directly outside the hotel and is a very short drive to the beach area/Walking Street. I'm unable to comment on the "free tuk tuk" service advertised by the hotel as I have no idea if it even exists.

Despite the few shortcomings, our stay at the Citin Garden was very enjoyable and the hotel provides excellent value for money. If the few drawbacks were addressed this hotel would be an incredibly strong contender for best value in the area.

My view point is this. It is all the little things that count. Excellent service, attitude, Clean, quiet, and small cozy hotel. A great budget hotel. The food served is good. The pool is small, but that was ok by me. Free wifi was ok and you can use the pc down at the pool bar for free. There is no joiner fee, no deposit to pay and the sevice desk was very helpful and polite always smiling. The area is far enough away from the walking street but close enough to get there by tuk tuk. The rooms are clean and comfortable with AC, fridge, and flat screen tv with plenty of channels to choose from. The area was small but that is the way I like it. I would recomend this hotel to all travelers. oh and the whole staff was nice and very polite. Please note nothing is perfect and the hotel is not fancy, but very simple and relaxing. If your expectation is too high you do not have to choose this hotel. If you are looking for a simple but nice hotel then this is it. I would stay here again. and thanks to all at citin garden hotel for a great stay for me.

We stayed in CItin Garden Pattaya for 4 days and it was a perfect vacation for me and my family. I wanted to ensure that the hotel we check into is perfect so I read reviews and the reviews of this hotel is just perfect. Everything was perfect and beautiful. We planned to stay for only 3 days but we extended for another day. The staff were very much helpful. I highly recommend this resort for its cleanliness and affordable price. I will definitely stay in this hotel again when I visit pattaya...

We all friends were so excited about this trip to pattaya, as we all were able to plan this eventually after 6 years. We did the booking of this place by reading the reviews on trip advisor and it was a perfect choice for us as we wanted a feeling of resort at a reasonable price. The rooms are clean with the facilities like fridge, boiler, free wifi and locker. Very nice swimming pool where we had a small olympics :)..The people were very friendly with facility of hiring bikes their itself it was exactly the type of place in pattaya which we friends were looking for....

Room Tip: Choose a room facing swimming pool:)
