Grand Sole Pattaya Beach Hotel
Ranked #176 of 466 Hotels in Pattaya
Reviewed September 30, 2013

Very good hotel, close to the beach, restaurants & evening shows; large well-lit rooms with good views, our room had a view of the large swimming pool. But the best thing was the awesome breakfast, with a variety of salads, sausages, salami, eggs, fruits, cereals, etc, couldn't just ask for more... Overall a very comfortable stay, will definitely prefer to stay again...

The hotel is near to pattaya beach, just walking distance from the beach. Rooms were clean but corridors walls all were stained and unclean. Also we faced communication problem with the staff in Hotel, we had hard time making them understand. You may face the problem almost everywhere in pattaya. But in Bangkok we didn't face any such problem, everyone we met spoke English properly. Breakfast buffet is very good, also had Thai dishes. The hotel is bit pricey. Overall its a good one.

Hotel Grand Sole is centrally located in Pattaya and the beach is barely a couple of KMS away. The building exudes old world charm and the rooms though small are clean and adequate. The ensuite bathrooms are clean. The hotel has a well patronised swimming pool that adjoins the restaurant in the lobby. The buffet breakfast comprised a reasonable selection with the seating organised both indoors and in the verandah alongside the pool. The staff were courteous and responsive.

So the hotel looks pretty grand from outside, but the inside just feels slightly unclean and old- not in a grand way.
As previous reviews have mentioned, the location is great. A 2 min walk to the pattaya beach (u just have to cross a field to get to the beach road), a 7/11 convenience store next to it, and lots of bars, restaurants and massage salons lining the road the hotel is on. The infamous walking street is about a 20 min walk and the pier to get to islands like Koh Larn is just beyond walking street. There are mini trucks that will take u around that area for 10-30 baht. Very economical.
As I have mentioned, our major problem was the weird smell that seemed to be there in the entire hotel. As soon you enter, u get hit by it but i suppose when u travel on a budget, u get used to things like that. Our check in lady was very sweet and polite. The check out one was really rude. We were waiting to get our security deposit of 1000 baht back and we asked her to hurry up in checking the room and she was not very polite in telling us that she could not help it and that we should have been prepared for it.
Also, you can't smoke anywhere inside the hotel, not even in the balconies. You will be told all this at check in. So u will have to sit outside near the verandah in case u do feel like a smoke.
Can't comment on the food because never stayed there for a long enough duration to eat. There was a small stall outside the 7/11 run by a lady that sold pretty good and cheap beef and pork noodle soups.

Stayed in the hotel for two nights 20 - 22 June 2013. Although location is good but the front office staff is extremely rude they collect a deposit of 1000 Baht but be prepared to shell out 400 to 600 Baht while you check out as the front office staff will accuse you of spoiling the towel/pillow covers which as it is are very old, torn out (towels) and bit yellowish but you as a guest have to take the blame. When I tried to reason with them staff was so rude it was like as if we have stayed free of cost. Stay at your own risk.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view rooms from 6th floor onwards.

Recently we went for our First Int'l Tour that is - Bangkok & Pattaya. Well, Honestly for the first time we stayed at 3 star Hotel so for obvious reasons it was Royal Experience for us. Our rooms were on 5th floor & above parking place so there wasn't much to see from Window. Bathroom equipped with bath tubs so sort of little trouble initially for all of us but managed :) My "whatsapp fan" daughter delighted immediately when she got to know wifi is free.

About Hotel & Amenities- Its located very near to beach & one can enjoy See View if he/she gets room accordingly. Hotel is equipped with Restaurant & bar, Swimming Pool, Spa Center & Smoking zones which are outside Hotel. Free Wifi facility & laundry service at additional cost. Restaurant indeed is very affordable.
Hotel staff- Not to mention very friendly & responsive. Just a bit of English understanding problem which was observed throughout Pattaya but not in Bangkok. Whenever we asked for any service it was attended immediately & politely.
Rooms- Those were pretty clean & well managed. When we entered the room we smelled Fragrance which was bit annoying. There was Safety electronic locker but we didn't risk keeping passport. You get 3 bottles daily if you need more pay for it or get it from nearby store "7 Eleven" which can get you damn cheap deals. Just think,a 600 ml Pepsi just 13 baht(Don't convert in Rupees)...."7 eleven" is best shop chains throughout Thailand....from recharges, soft drinks, food everything. I must mentioned about Beds, they were so soft guaranteed peaceful sleep.
Food- Breakfast was excellent, lot many varieties & its wonderful experience getting to know what "American Breakfast" is all about. Rest we had dining at some Indian restaurants like Mumbai Magic, Indian Chimaney.
Sight seeing- We were part of group tour so travelling by Commuter SUV. Beach, Alkazar Show Building, Mcdonalds, Indian Restaurants, Local thai street food stop are nearby. One must try Thai street food its cheap & tasty. You will find huge difference if you taste Chicken Fried rice.
Street Walk- We decided to have street walk & immediately ask our self was the decision correct. Well being from Cultural background of India its not that acceptable for us of whats going on the streets....a little bit uncomfortable due to Ladyboys....but yes its their culture & you can't complain. But definitely it feels lot a safer even at 12 o'clock compare to current status in India.

Overall Thoughts- The Hotel is good no doubt But in Pattaya there's nothing much enjoyable which was shown exaggerately by tour operator. Must visit places like Sri Racha zoo weren't covered so I could not say if Pattaya is worth to visit again.

Room Tip: Ask for sea facing rooms. Enjoy swimming pool you aren't paying additional cost. Taste thai stre...
