LK Metropole Hotel is situated in approximately 1300 yards from the sea of Pattaya Gulf, and its tall building is full of balconies, which is its distinctive feature. Suites here are rather spacy; many have their own kitchen and balcony, while the prices are surprisingly low. I’ve paid around $50 for a Superior suite with balcony (without buffet), and got a mini-bar inside as a pleasant surprise, with a large bed and the monumental furniture. From the 6th floor I was viewing the city, but I couldn’t see the ocean, unfortunately. The staff on reception was not too friendly, but at least the check-in didn’t take much time.
The overall impression from the LK Metropole Hotel is that it totally worth its money. When you stay there, you feel like you’re close to the center of nightlife in Pattaya, though there are too many Russians around you (and not all of them are friendly or polite). On the other hand, it’s a rather quiet place, and you can comfortably sleep at night. The hotel doesn’t offer very impressive food / drink opportunities, with just one restaurant and a café inside. However, many suites have helpful mini bars with some local beverages. The pool seems to be too small, for the number of tourists willing to swim. The gym is poorly equipped, so I preferred going to sauna and SPA (not very expensive, too).
What is most important, there are too many guests there for staff to control your visitors. Of course, they notice if you bring a girl with you, but don’t pay much attention to it. I brought a girl to my suite and we spent a fine few hours together; I haven’t had to escort her back, she just left on her own. Definitely, you won’t have any problems with that in LK Metropole Hotel, unless you want to organize an orgy in your suite and need some extra beds 😉
