I'm very surprised at some of the negative comments about this place in here. I have stayed there 3 times now and it suits my needs. Its not The Hilton but its located where all the action is, the rooms are bigger and cleaner than many places asking far more, the owner is a decent chap that will put you right about Pattaya and the staff are all very friendly. I'm not sure what more you could ask for. I'll be back again in November.

This is about the bar only. Never stayed in the rooms.

Very much like a locals only place.

Went in for a drink and walked up to the staff playing a game to order. Waiting for the drink to arrive asked what they were playing and given a scowl and told..."you sit over there". Given the number one task in their job description at these sort of bars is to chat with customers not play games with their friends, not somewhere I would ever go again or recommend. Rude or quick to get angry Thais are to be avoided like the plague.

Drinks overpriced for the area.

thank you for your review . strangely enough we are a bar whos clientelle come from all over the world , and on any given evening you will find a mixture of nationalities and a mixture of expats and more so tourists ,

the last thing that could be said about the rockhouse is that it is a locals only bar .

we pride ourselves on customer service and dont have any staff who would behave in the manner you describe , but if we did you can be sure we would not hesitate in removing them from their position .

kind regards .

I have stayed at The Rock House twice over the years; the first time was back in 2008, the second time was earlier this year. A lot has changed in Soi LK Metro in that time. It has transformed from being a quiet little street full of guesthouses, small bars, and the occasional restaurant, into a vibrant, busy, noisy nightlife area with around eight go-go bars plus the traditional bars, guesthouses etc. Soi LK Metro is well and truly "on the map" nowadays.

Why am I saying all this? Because these developments have fundamentally changed the nature of Soi LK Metro as a place to select accommodation, and this is something that you MUST understand if you want to stay at The Rock House (or any other guesthouse in Soi LK Metro). This is not the place to stay if you are wanting to have a "quiet night in".

The Rock House has three 'large' apartments that are front-facing, and a similar number of 'smaller' apartments that are rear-facing. These rooms are all situated above the bar area that is located on the ground floor. I chose the large apartment on the top floor, which is a massive 60sqm. It really does feel like you're living in an apartment, with plenty of space. Fast, free wi-fi in the room. The photos on their website are very accurate depictions of the rooms. Plus you can see my own photos that I took earlier this year.

Overall, this guesthouse remains very good value for money, although the competition nearby is a lot stronger now than it was in 2008. My three main suggestions to the owners of The Rock House would be (i) invest a little bit of money in new mattresses and linen for the beds (ii) work hard on strengthening the water pressure in the shower and (iii) try and replicate the picture-quality you have on the TVs in the bar into the TVs in the rooms.

Recommended for nightlife-loving single lads who enjoy a spacious apartment-style room and friendly staff.

Me and my boyfriend have recently stayed at this Guest House run by a Scottish Chap by the name of Alex and his "Girlfriend" Tar.

Big rooms for around 800bt with a free weekly bed linen change and mini bar, bottles of water although free in most GHs were only 25 bt and tea bags & all in one coffee sachets were also available in the room for a small charge of 30bt each.

A deposit of 3000bt is expected on arrival.

dear sir or madam , your review of our place is slightly misleading as we are neither gay friendly or unfreiendly , just a normal everyday business that caters to all of our customers no matter their race , religion or sexual orientation .

as it happens i am a happily married man and proud father and i run this business with my wife of over 10 years , her name is noi if you didnt already know .

we did at one time have a cashier whos name was tar , but unfortunately she passed away last year .

please sir or madam , if you are going to post a trip advisor report on my business or any other , dont make things up and try to taint the business .

kind regards .
