open air lobby - not my cup of tea in hot weather

Review of Hotel J Pattaya
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Mar 23, 2011
My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in March of 2011. The hotel was booked through our tour group so I'm not sure about the prices/value. The hotel decoration is pretty modern and our room was clean. The bathroom had both a shower and a tub (although the tub is pretty small). We had a balcony with a nice view of the pool, but it was too hot to sit out there for long. The entire lobby leading up to the hallways of the rooms is open-aired. That really isn't the most comfortable since it's so hot in Pattaya. Next time we definitely want a hotel with an enclosed lobby with a/c. Our room door opens up to an open hallway, and even though we put a towel by the door, we still got bit by mosquitoes a lot. Not the best time. The breakfast buffet could also use some work. The Thai food was pretty good, but the Western stuff (ham, bacon, french toast) not so much. Wi-fi worked well. Hard to get the perfect water temperature in the shower.

Reviewed March 20, 2011

We liked nearly everything about this hotel: newly built, nicely designed, ample underground parking space, nice pool area, large rooms with comfortable beds, shower and bath tub, free Wifi, clean, good breakfast, friendly staff, good service. But nothing is perfect so there is one thing with will definitely not let us return again: due to a door connecting two rooms there's no noise insulation. You can practically follow the conversations of your neighbors next room! Also the main door is not soundproof so you can hear anyone passing by.
This may be only the case for the Deluxe room type we were staying in, but we will definitely not have another try.
It's a real pity, everything else at this hotel is just great.

we stay with my family and loved the "pretty" room design
Very friendly staff who becomes more like a big family.
Everyone is chilling and relaxing, so it's a great place to have rest.
During our stay we enjoyed the hotel very much and we hope to come back soon again.
