Guest-friendly hotels Pattaya 2023 update: I came back from my last trip to Pattaya in 2022. I visited many guest-friendly hotels in Pattaya, spoke to staff/owners, and took new pics. The info below is first-hand. The information is too big for one post, so I’ll keep a simple updated list of guest-friendly hotels in Pattaya. If you need more help and (bigger) hotel photos, just send me a message.
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 the 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. A great price range of goods and services that can suit everyone’s budget. Soi 6 in North Pattaya has many ST (short-time) bars. The area is mostly known as a daytime hang-out.
Pattaya bar girls prices 2019: 1000-2000 LT, 1000 ST; bar fines: 300-500
go go girls: 2000-3000 LT, 1500-2000 ST; bar fines: 600-1000
freelancers: 1000-1500 LT, 500-1000 ST
LT – long time, all night; ST – short time, 1-2 hours; The prices are in Thai baht.
