I haven't stayed in a guest house for years, but this was a very good experience. I had the top floor (4th Floor) which meant a lot of stairs. One room per floor but a large room, perhaps 50m2, with lots of space, nice balcony and very light and airy. Split A/C which worked well, Thai satellite TV, soon found the Fox Channel and how to get the English language soundtrack.
Wifi worked well. The owner of the guest house, whilst very pleasant spoke very little english, so she got the owner of the cafe next door to translate when i haggled over the price.
The guest house is in a small soi, about 50 yards from the beach, although I am told that this part of the beach is not clean, but I wasn't going for a beach experience. The people in the soi all know each other and there are little restaurants, cafes, a family mart and local business's. very pleasant and interesting and just a few minutes drive from my Pal's apartment. Car transfer from Jomtien (near Pattaya) to Bangkok Airport 900 Baht and took just under 2hours. Used a service recommended by my pal. we just called a couple of hours in advance and everything was very smooth.
Needless to say, no swimming pool or Gymn!More
