When staying in Pattaya it’s always a good idea to book a hotel that has a girl friendly policy. What this means is that the hotel will allow you to take an unregistered guest back to your room, free without charge. Pretty useful considering most tourist to Pattaya take bar girls back to their rooms.
Pattaya has many girl friendly hotels close to the city’s red light district. Most of the hotels are very affordable with budget rates. Most importantly they’re within walking distance to Pattaya’s best go go bars like Shark, Living Dolls and Angel Witch. Plus many more.
One of the most popular and cheapest guest friendly hotel in Pattaya is Sawasdee Sea View hotel tucked away on Second Road, just a few minutes walk to the beach and there are go go bars just a 5 minute stroll away. This hotel has rooms starting at 600THB per night including a free breakfast. All in all a pretty good choice for anyone traveling on the cheap.
Next up is the Honey Inn on the corner of Soi Buakao which is also really close to the funkiest go go bars. Even though Honey Inn has been recently renovated there still seems to be some issues with the way the hotel functions. So they do get the most mixed reviews. But for only 700THB including free breakfast who can really complain.
If you want some place a bit nicer than check out Diamond City Place. 800THB will land you a decent sized room and a pool. Of course breakfast is included too. It’s a bit further away but not really by much. So this is a good option if you want a little more peace and quiet.
Next is one of my favorite girl friendly hotel in Pattaya. The Sunshine Hotel & Residence for 900THB is worth every penny. Their standard rooms are clean but a bit small. However there are 2 swimming pools for guest use and free breakfast. Need I say more? Of all the hotels I recommend to people, Sunshine is the only one they always go back to.
Finally there’s one girl friendly hotel really worth mentioning and it’s called Areca Lodge. Their room rates start at 1250THB and really well worth it. The entire hotel is well maintained and there are facilities such as a nice swimming pool. Since it’s located on Soi Diana, you’re in stumbling distance to some very popular go go bars. If you can afford to spend a bit more then this is a good hotel to do so.
