Second time I have stayed at this hotel this year. Each time I have found it to be an excellent place to stay in Pattaya. It is located at the northern end of Pattaya Beach on Beach Road. Walking Street, the main adult entertainment area of Pattaya, is located at the southern end but it easy to get a songthaew (10Baht taxi) from in front of the hotel to the entertainment area or to elswhere in Pattaya for that matter. While the main transport entrance is from Beach Road there is walking access from the hotel to Second Street putting you within a few minutes walk of Alcarzar and other revue venues and bars and restaurants.
Have stayed in three different rooms and each has had a sea view. In keeping with Holiday Inns in Asia the rooms are spotlessly clean, well provisioned and relatively spacious. One room I stayed in on a lower floor did not have a bath tub - just a shower- but other rooms I stayed in did have a bath tub as well but curiously placed in front of a window so that you had an excellent view over Pattaya while you relaxed in the bath.
Room rates for the hotel tend to fluctuate and in general the further away from the date you wish to stay the cheaper the room rate - but there are exceptions. I always book through the Holiday Inn website. Rates are better than booking agencies I tend to find.
The buffet breakfast on the 4th floor had the widest variety of food possible to imagine catering for both western and asian tastes - and the kitchen staff kept replentishing it and ensuring that warm food stayed warm.
The staff at the front desk and elsewhere in the hotel are friendly and anxious to please. They could not be faulted. An international paper was delivered to the room each morning and there were more available at breakfast.
Although I did not get the opportunity to use the swimming pool it looked inviting.
The Hotel has a an indoor bar and another bar and swimming pool fronting on to Beach Road. It is popular with local professional Thais and special promotions tends to make the beer prices almost competitive with other bars.
The hotel has three computers in the lounge area with free wifi for the use of guests. Hotel requires that you spend no more than 30 minutes at any one time on a computer to permit others to have access to them.
In summary this is an excellent hotel and maintains the high standard set by the Holiday Inn chain in Thailand. The staff of the hotel are to be congratulated on providing excellent service.
