“Good Budget Hotel near Walking Street Pattaya”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

I stayed at the hotel for 2 days. The budget room we were allotted on the ground floor was neat, clean but had a big wall behind the window. So, we were left with no sunlight and view from our room. It is OK if you are traveling the whole day. The deluxe rooms provide a nice view of the swimming pool.

One of the highlights of this hotel will be its food. For breakfast you will get Indian, Continental food. Salads, Kheer, Puri and Bhaji are few Indian items. A good menu for everyone.

Room Tip: Book a room apart from budget rooms, preferably on the 1st, 2nd floors.

When I arrived, I was told that I had been upgraded to a new wing of the hotel. gullible , I wrote in a piece of paper , which I agreed to this.

This new and improved wing , turned out to be a part of a building site. The phone in the room was not connected yet and the internet did not work ( disaster because I work even though I'm away from the DK.)

. On the toalettet there was a stench of sewage , which did not disappear even if I filled water in all drains . At night there was a big bunch of drunk Russians who were having a party and the next morning kl.6:30 gathered approximately 20 construction workers below my window ( lived on the first floor ) and held a morning meeting before they started cutting metal and bring stones .

When I complained in the reception, they offered me another upgrade to a new hotel, situated on the beach. I said thank you , but refused this time to sign anything until I had seen what they sent me to . Once again , there was not an upgrade but a lower standard than the one, I had booked and yet situated far away from the center and the appartments my family lives in.

I went back to Bella Express and demanded my money back , which I was informed to take place through Expedia . Then I left the hotel, even though I had 2 nights back of my reservation and have now booked me into another place.

The rooms are clean and spacious. But the hotel is extending itself and the construction work is going on, so do not expect good sleep. You get nice Indian food, breakfast buffet has good options for both veg and non-veg.

We were at "Bella Express" by the end of November 2013, for 5 nights. I liked the hotel overview from the outside & as well as from Inside. They have facility of breakfast (which includes Indian Food also) & wifi. The location is also very nice as it is near to 2nd street & the Famous "Walking street of Pattaya". You will find everything near about only. So if you want to explore pattaya with budget amount this Hotel is a good option. You will find rent a bike near by only. The beach road & all other area very near. And you will also find 50-60% guest are from India only, because of Indian breakfast. But their service was very bad. If you want anything than it is a disaster. And for wake up call service they always wake me up Half an hour early than schedule time. These issues were there. But overall good hotel to stay with family or friends for Indians specially.

We stayed here during my first visit to Thailand and it was a good stay. the pool is good but the hotel is always crowded as I am sure it has many tie-ups with travel agencies in thailand. Overall the rooms were okay. The shocking part was that they made sure that they check the rooms before you check out and charge you for soiled towels. Although we did not have to go through any of this, we could see the ruckus at the counter every noon,

Room Tip: pool view if possible

Booked this hotel for a group of 20 members. The rooms are compact but good enough to fit in 2-3ppl in a room, neat and clean. Check in was very smooth and fast since it was pre booked. Location is also great, close to all major attractions and the beach as well. The best thing is the breakfast, was amazed to see the variety of foods. Taste and quality is awesome. If you are Indian travelers, you will love this hotel. All in all, the best budget hotel in that locality.

This hotel looks good from outside and even the location is fine. You have some Indian restaurants nearby. All these things are spoiled by the service provided by the hotel. Specially the senior front office lady. She is not bothered about what's happening in the hotel, there were times when I have heard people calling her filthy words due to frustration. I had been given keys to my room two times and I end up in others room. They don't even know which room we are staying. The rooms are clean and spacious. But the hotel is extending itself and the construction work is going on, so do not expect to sleep well till the work is done, which is going to be for some more months. There are better hotels nearby.
