“Hit or Miss”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

I'm ambivalent about this hotel. It's not the most modern or best hotel I've stay in this price range but I had a very comfortable stay and it is in a quiet area. It has a computer in every room which maybe a bonus for some who needs daily access to emails and light internet surfing. But I had no need for it since I brought my own laptop which is much faster. I do appreciate their strong free wi-fi signal. The issue I have with this hotel is its the location. It is about 10-15 minute walk to Second Rd where you can catch a cheap ride to the main attractions. There is really nothing around the hotel (except other Nova hotels) scattered around this area. They offer free shuttles (you may have to wait 5 minutes) but they only drop you off at Second Road and it maybe a hassle to arrange for a pick-up at the Second Rd. Especially in the dead of the night, I'd be hesitant to walk around so I always take the taxi (100-150 baht) that takes you straight to the hotel. The hotel size is small-medium sized. It doesn't feel cheap or overdone, there is a quality feel to it, but compared to other similarly priced class of hotels, I feel it is a tad outclassed. There are better deals around especially if you factor in the taxi rides that can quickly add up. It probably takes a good 15-20 minutes to get to the beach via transportation and ~30 minutes to walk. On the other hand, a very popular club - Hollywood disco - isn't that far from this hotel. Unless you plan to spend most of your time at the North Pattaya night scene (but most of it still a 20-30 minute walk or 10-15 min via shuttle/bus), I'd pass on this hotel mostly because of its location and better deals can be had elsewhere.

Room Tip: There is a cheap laundry mat nearby but it may take 1-2 days to get your clothes back.

the hotel is good. rooms are large and clean and comfortable. room had a tv and computer although, i only used the tv to watch some news.
there is a safe to lock your valuables.....very good.
the staff are very polite but please do not trust any of them. the cost to the sea side is very cheap ie 50butts or less. in fact, it is not far to walk. the reception asked for 400 butts. to put in context, it cost 200 butts to travel on the bus to bangkok.which is many miles and this receptionist wanted 400 butts for a mere one mile or so in distance.
there is no restaurant in this hotel but there is jameson restaurant in front of the hotel.....just ask.

have a good day

Room Tip: the rooms are good and large but good a/c but i would have prefered to go to the sea side.the distan...

This is a first rate option if you are in the 3*+ bracket. Good rooms but even better staff especially Nui and the reception team. Spotlessly clean and Rolls Royce service. Two minor issues the pool is good but no opportunity for sunbathing as in shade. Location might put some off, but you are 2or3 min walk to second road bhat buses + hotel does a free golf buggy taxi service as far as second road and Big C. Top hotel!

I booked into this hotel for 2 nights during my visit to pattaya. I had originally booked the basic room of this hotel based on its location close to the 2nd road as displayed on booking.com.. well this turned out to be incorrect information as i tried in vain to follow the map to the hotel. i decided to call the hotel to get some help from them in locating the hotel and they tell me the hotel is more than a kilometer from the location shown on booking.com... not a good start at all
When i arrived at the hotel, i immediately made a complaint about this to the receptionist who asked me what i wanted to do now, so i asked to see the room first now that i have been misled. i saw the room and it was ok but when i went down to confirm, they offered to upgrade me to a bigger room in the corner which i appreciated.
The room is exactly as shown in the picture on trip advisor, spacious room and bathroom, good fittings, A COMPUTER for browsing the internet.
couple of problems that i had with the place were, there was something wrong with the keycard initially and it took some fixing before i could get into the room once i had returned to the room. also the slope to the parking lot was very steep and it was very difficult to maneuver my sports car to avoid damaging it. alternatively i used to park on the slope infront of the hotel which helped alot.
Location: well i had a car so it really wasnt a problem for me. but if i didnt have a car, i would never ever stay here.

This has now been my 4th visit to this hotel since July 2010 and this stay was equally as good as the previous 3.

Check-in was again just a 2 minute operation and all the girls on reception were as helpful as ever. I requested and received a room on a high floor and away from the elevator.

I find that the rooms here are plenty big enough and for me have a very, very comfortable bed and I always sleep very well here. The bathroom is also big enough and has good water pressure.

True the hotel is situated a little away from the “Action” but that suits me perfectly well and honestly will a 5 minute walk to catch a taxi on the 2nd road kill any one! I have also noticed that it is now possible to get a taxi from down town to the hotel for Baht 100 where 15 months ago it was always Baht 200 to 300.

Room service from Jamison’s worked very well as usual.

So once again this was a very good experience for me and I highly recommended this hotel.
