“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2013

I just loved this hotel! We stayed 2 weeks and booked on agoda the first 2 days and decide to stay there for the rest of our trip. The first room we had was a little more expensive (corner room on 3rd floor) I think it was a suite, it was sooo big and confortable. The only thing is the bed is so hard lol Unfortunatly they changed us room after a few days because it was the chinese year so it was busy .. anyways that's what they were saying but we saw alot of empty rooms. The second room we had was on the 7th floor, nice spacious room and clean BUT very noisy! We can hear the bands from the street (2nd road is busy) it was really anoying. We didn't say nothing we put the air conditionner at maximum so it would cover all the noise from the street lol. The pool on top of the roof was perfect, not big but clean and really cozy and not busy. We can order food from the pool, wich was nice :) Next time i go to Pattaya, I will go there again for sure. Perfect location too in front of Big C etc

Room Tip: choose a bigger room (a little extra) I think 310 was the number

Booked through Agoda, pictures looked fine.
The pool area was okay, but tiny, almost like a paddling pool.
The bed was as hard as a rock, the air con was noisey, the room looked clean, then saw a cockroach, thought nothing of it, as you kind of expect it in thailand, then two days on, saw another 2 in the bathroom, and one on my bedroom wall.
On further inspection of the cleanliness of the room, i pulled out the bed, furniture etc, it was filthy, mixture of dust hair, and god knows what else.
So next morning i got hold of the maid, made her clean room properly, and spray everywhere with repellant, did not get a repeat of the cockroach.
Would avoid this place like the plague, as a spotlessly clean room is all pretty much i care for.
Pitty really as the location of this hotel was ideal, and the staff were friendly enough

Room Tip: stay away, avoid avoid avoid

Good size rooms and kept clean. Free water daily in fridge. Great pool and bar on the top floor. Let down by reception staff at checkout who would not print a boarding pass for me even though there was a printer at reception.directed me to large shopping mall down the road. Very poor service considering I had been there a week.

This hotel is a part of Sabai complex. A very nice location in Pattaya. Away from all the mess. Big C shopping complex is just across the road. You can have the baht bus right at the gate of the hotel. The rooms are good size and modern decor. House keeping is good. A very basic breakfast, but they can do the egg whichever way you want. The staff is very good. I had some problem with the wifi in the room but it was fixed by the staff. The beach is hardly five minutes away. There re many food joints around the hotel. They can also book the tours for you if you want. A good value for money hotel.

We were struggling to find a room for 3 people over New Year and after looking about for a couple of hours found this place who had a cancellation so we snapped it up without looking at the room first. We were happily surprised at the service from the staff, the size of the room and the room service food was decent. It cost us £110 for 2 nights(£18.50 per person per night) so an average price for a more than average hotel. All of the taxi drivers knew where it was which was a nice change. The roof pool is small but lovely to relax by. I would recommend this hotel for all types of visitor.

stayed at sabai empress for first time in soy 1. was pleasantly surprised at size,cleansiness and facilities in room. free wifi, plasma tv, shower/bath,tea/coffee making facilities. super breakfast and great restaurant staff,and a lovely rooftop pool area.. front of house reception staff could be more friendly and only disappointment was when we asked for a couple of hours extra for check out they charged us 50%of room rate even though hotel was not full and three of us had stayed there in 3 separate rooms for 14 days each,so would have expected them to facilitate us free gratis.. other than that would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: i paid a little extra for a corner room and it was definitely worth it
