Sunshine Hotel & Residences should’ve been called Starlight Hotel or Neon Hotel or something like this, because it is situated right in the middle of Pattaya’s nightlife. On one hand, you’re just one step from the beach, several night clubs, a plenty of bars and Central Festival, close to Soi 8. On the other, you won’t have a good sleep anyway: it’s just too noisy around there.
The hotel itself looks very hospitable and cozy. You literally feel at home, when you enter the lobby of Sunshine Hotel & Residences. Its suites are spacious and light; several pools (including the one on the top of the building) are clean, and comfortable. Besides, the prices are incredibly attractive here: standard suite will cost you $35 per night, while Deluxe suite is below $50 per night. Breakfast costs around $5 additionally to the room price, but there is no reason to order it: you can eat cheaper and better in one of the local cafes. The restaurant has a nice choice of dishes both from traditional Asian and modern European cuisines, and it’s not very expensive, just in case you don’t want to go out.
The hotel has a very friendly policy regarding guests and their visitors. You can easily pass the security with a local girl you may have hooked up on a music festival, even if you’re drunk and barely stand on your feet. The room cleaning service is quite convenient; they never disturb you if you hang the DND sign on your door. The summary is, Sunshine Hotel & Residences is a perfect place for those, who want to live the nightlife in Pattaya, and don’t have much money to spend on apartments.
