Guest Friendly Hotels in Pattaya

Pattaya is a city with multiple personalities. For some it is a place to learn about Thai culture, for many it is a shopping paradise, for families it offers a plethora of activities that everyone can enjoy and for a million single men it is a nightspot and a place to meet friends. Some. of the most beautiful women in Thailand.

You can meet Thai girls in bars, go-go bars, on the beach or anywhere in this friendly city. The question that guys often ask is where can I find a hotel that is welcoming to guests. If I want to invite my new friend to my hotel, does the hotel accept an additional guest, is it “girl friendly” or will I be charged a “registration fee”?

5 star hotels

Although many people think of Pattaya as the most vibrant nightlife center in Asia, this is only part of the tourist activities in Pattaya. Judging by hotel bookings, most of the hotel’s revenue comes from older couples and families. Hotels cater their business to one or more of these tourist groups, so you’ll find that 5-star hotels and family-oriented hotels, like larger hotels, are generally not guest-friendly. There is one notable exception, Pattaya’s top-rated hotel, the Rabbit Resort on Dongtan Beach offers hospitality to all visitors, including your friends.

Pedestrian Street Hotels

If you’re looking for a guest-friendly hotel, you’ll find that virtually all hotels, guesthouses, and apartments near nightlife areas are guest-friendly. In the Walking Street area you will find a good selection of popular and highly rated hotels.

On Soi Diamond, the street with more than a dozen go-go bars, are Diamond Beach Hotel, Galaxy Suites and Green View Serviced Apartments. Close by on Soi 14 is the Grand Hotel, with 80 rooms in a variety of styles, and the recently renovated 62-room Jasmine Hotel with a new indoor pool, one of the highest-rated Pattaya hotels on Trip Advisor. On Walking Street, Walking Street Guesthouse is located just above Sweethearts Go-Go and P.72 Hotel, with the bar at street level opening onto Walking Street. A great place to sit and watch the activities on Walking Street before heading out for the night.
