Guest friendly hotels Pattaya 2017 update: I came back from my last trip to Pattaya in 2017. I visited many guest friendly hotels in Pattaya again, spoke to staff/owners and took new pics. The info below is first-hand. Pattaya Marriot changed its name to Avani Pattaya resort & spa. It was a great option for a luxury guest friendly hotel in Pattaya but they started to charge a joiner fee 1000 baht per person (from 1st May 2017). New hotel photos added to guest friendy hotels Pattaya list. Soi Lk Metro area: Moonlight hotel, 247 boutique hotel, Premier Inn, Chada Thai house. New Pattaya beach road luxury guest friendly hotel found – Wave hotel.
The best guest friendly hotels in Pattaya are located close to the top nightlife areas. Walking Street is considered the heart of Pattaya nightlife with the largest entertainment complex, bars and clubs. Best quality entertainment and most expensive area. The best of Central Pattaya is in the soi LK Metro – soi Buakhao – soi Diana area. It is also the best value for money area, excellent for a newbie (and for anybody). Everything you need is within 100 meters radius – beer bars, go go bars, restaurants…great price range of goods and services that can suite everyone’s budget. Soi 6 in North Pattaya has many ST (short time) bars. The area is mostly known as a day time hang out.
Pattaya bar girls prices 2017: 1500-3000 LT, 1000+ ST; bar fines: 400-500+
go go girls: 2000-4000+ LT, 1500-2000+ ST; bar fines: 600-2100
freelancers: 1000-1500 LT, 500-1000 ST
LT – long time, all night; ST – short time, 1-2 hours; The prices are in thai baht.
