Thialand Hotel Suggestions?

  i just joined the site and would like to say whats up to everyone.im plannin a trip to thialand in the fall and want to know if anyone could recommend any good hotels or places to stay at around pattaya beach. 

I am goin aswell in summer have no idea about pattaya though just gonna wing it over there
check the net there should be forms recommending something

I am sure that you can get good suggestions from this site, but whenever I went there I found it was better to just hire a diver for the whole time. (Or a “guide.”) This person could normally find you pretty good deals.

Or you can go to any of the numerous tour guide companies once you get there and they can normally get you a good deal. Just do a little research first to make sure that they aren’t ripping you off…

I wouldn’t try to find a hotel on your own, a lot of time you will get charged more. A word of warning about the taxi drivers… a lot of them get kick backs from tourist traps so kind of be wary of them.

The best luck I have found was hiring someone that was NOT a taxi driver. They did all the bartering, plus found cheap things to do. For example, a tourist trap will sell you dinner for 15-30 dollars, were as your guide could get you a very simular meal for about 1.50.

Depends on your likes and dislikes and when you are going.
Been there 4 times.

In Pattaya, if you want to stay close to the action, and if this is your first time, I would stay at the dream hotel. It is on second road, close to Lucifers.

Rooms there are nice enough and are very cheap, cheap, cheap.

If you want something that is top notch but still affordable, you should look at Residence gardens.
Book it through this site though because they have a discount.

The advantage of the residence gardens at 37ish a night is that they will pick you up from the airport. Real nice suites, two pools, etc.
If you want, I will PM you a few of my contacts there. Can answer anything you’d like.

I bought in as part owner of a little garden pub in Pattaya. It is small. It is near the hell club, lolita’s …
can give you info on that as well

I will PM you my bar location.
Never been to universe gym, but have been to Tony’s. Its OK. Real weird price structure.
Let me tell you a bit about Hell club. It is a specialty bar on Soi metro and soi Diana before soi bua-khao. You pick one girl and allow her to pick the other. If you pick from one side of the yellow line, those are the three input girls.

Lolitas is a specialty bar that is all about blowjobs. My lil place is close to it. Hell, I can scan you a business card or a google earth link. I’ll send you a PM. When are your going?
