Grand Hotel Pattaya is a small 9-floor building in the middle of the Walking Street, near the Pattaya Bay. It doesn’t have any outside territory where you can walk or rest, neither it offers outside or inside pools, gyms, SPA or sauna. This is a simple place to stay for a night or rest in the middle of the day, when you are tired of walking or partying. The prices, though are rather high: from 30-40 dollars for a room for two (Deluxe or Superior suites) to nearly 80 dollars for a Family suite with two beds.
The set of services, offered within this 3-star hotel is quite small. They do not have any recreational zone, there is only one restaurant (below the average food and highly priced), and no yard. It isn’t a place to stay if you have come for comfort. The rooms are rather large, but the view is not anywhere impressive: you just see the night city at best. Check-in takes some additional time because the staff is not very quick and helpful. They could have hired more polite and cheerful people and schooled them better. The comfort is below the average, mostly because of lack of services.
Grand Hotel Pattaya, despite its name, is a very average place, but in some way it is the advantage. Though there are only 80-100 rooms in this hotel, you can easily pass the guards with a visitor, and nobody really pays attention to you. Staff is rather ignorant, and it’s a plus in case you intend to take a girl to your room. They do not charge you any additional money for having visitors in your room; neither do they disturb you, when you explicitly ask them not to, putting the DND sign on your door.
