I stayed at this hotel in May for 1 week. The location was half a block from the start of Walking Street.
I was in a Superior plus room which was very roomy with a flat screen TV and a sitting area. I felt it was worth the price. My mates stayed in the smaller rooms which were poor in my opinion.
Front desk worker was not unfriendly but just business as usual. No in-room safes and they expect you to store any valuables at the front desk. There was one sketchy moment where I had left through the front door but went back to my room for a forgotten item via the back door elevator. One hotel worker picked that moment to use his key to enter my room without knocking. It could be for legitimate reasons but I was happy i was there at the time.
One major complaint was the charges for water. FYI, nearly all local hotels supply a couple of free bottles of water in the fridge. These will be the glass, refillable bottles, as they cost the hotel only 4 baht to refill. They will also supply plastic bottles of water as well as soda and beers which have a charge.
When I checked out of Lido Hotel they charged me 30 baht for the glass water bottles.... and they charged tax 2 baht on in addition! I have never heard of this and I feel like the front desk was trying to get a few extra baht on the side or something fishy.
This "extra charge" means I will not stay there on my next visit. I hope the owner realizes some day that 64 baht extra cost him nearly 7000 baht that he won't make from me on my next stay.
Local tips: Pattaya Beer Garden across the street is a great restaurant with a bay view and all sorts of good food.
