Displayed prices are for multiple nights. Check the site for price per night. I see hostels starting at 200b/day and hotels from 500b/day on agoda.

  1. Ok, to be more specific to what i would like. Have stayed at Metro apartments, good overall but the wifi is not the best, done a few internet searches and most places are 700 to 900 baht in that area, the price is fine, happy to spend up to 1000 but wanting the usual clean, safe and close to the action but also decent wifi and not too much noise late at night as im not an all nighter, midnight to 1am is about as late as I get. Which in that area would be good, had a look at Robins nest which is just around the corner, noise on the soi isn’t too bad I know from eating there also looks o
  2. Wanting to stay in this area but has changed quite a bit in recent times. Which would you recommend, and is noise a problem now that area has a fair few more bars and go gos than a couple of years ago.
  3. Bell bus is a great service and for a few minutes longer than a taxi well worth it IMO, personally I NEVER take Taxi’s in LOS, nothing to do with being a cheap Charlie, had a near miss when a taxi spun out few years ago in the wet, spooked me big time plus near enough every driver I had used seemed to think it was a race against time to get to or from Swampy or Bangkok in often dodgy looking taxis (private cars) that are driven at high speed, so savings aside I use the Bell Bus as I feel safer.
  4. Thanks, that’s great info and will be using this service to get down to Pattaya on the upcoming trip. Does the Bus depart from the same area as the Bell bus on level 1 or is there a bus terminal I need to make my way too ?
  5. Has anyone used this service ?, I arrive early evening after the last Bell bus has departed but according to the Website this bus also runs until 10pm each day, looks like you cant pre book but any info appreciated. And before anyone says get a Taxi, nothing to do with being a cheap Charles!, there is no way im taking pot luck after being involved in taxi spinning out in the wet a few years ago I haven’t taken a taxi in the kingdom since, not hurt but frightened the shit out of me and spooked me. If I can’t get a bus then will overnight in Bangkok then get the bus from ekamai the follo
  6. I’ve got in very late a few times (2am) and stayed at the Great Residence which is only a 10 minute ride from Swampy rather than get a taxi down to Pattaya, basic, safe, Quiet and clean and only 600 baht + free pick up, breakfast is 100 baht and return to the Airport the following morning is 150 baht were I get the Bell bus. Booked on agoda and never a problem, you will get offered “Company” by the bell boys but never taken them up on it, get in 2am, up at 9am, SSS, then breakfast and bus back to the airport to pick up the Bell bus. they have WiFi but i never bothered, just sleep, ate,
  7. Yes it was Acyclovir cream, all in all, the Zit started Thursday morning, i flew back home Sunday, went to the Doctor Monday, today is Wednesday and the Zit has all but gone, so i recon that’s defiantly what it was, doctor has referred me for a blood test just to be 100% sure, all in all feel pretty stupid but live and learn I suppose, when your told something like this it does make you stop and think that maybe the person particularly a pharmacist would know what they were talking about..
  8. Well I was into the last couple of days in LOS when I woke with a small pimple just under my lip, didn’t think anything of it but by evening it was noticeable when looking in a mirror, anyway was in Tim’s on second road having a good time and upon visiting the toilets again could see my little pimple, having had a cut from eating prawns when the shell nicked my thumb that looked like it was getting a minor infection as well I decided to pop next door to the pharmacy and get some antiseptic cream for that and thought I would put some on the pimple as well. Anyway I walk in the pharmacy and
  9. I’m curious as to how you get these vouchers, I often fly with Emirates but never heard about vouchers to the lounges the only time I have got entry is if im in Business class, reason I ask is im flying to Dubai from Sydney in Economy next week on EK 419 and will arrive at the Airport 4 hours before the flight, sadly I cant get a few days in LOS en route which is a real downer and will feel like torture when we arrive at Swampy for a 2 hour lay over, but a couple of hours in the lounge at Sydney would be much better than killing time wandering about the Airport or waiting at the gate, so tell
  10. Been looking at staying here my next trip, reviews are a couple of years old so has anyone stayed here recently ?.
  11. I agree with Big D, each to there own but IMO, the food is good, will also say also the service is good as well, friendly staff, great setting, relaxed atmosphere, overall one of the best places to chill out in Pattaya.
  12. The hats and hairs nets do there jobs but the face mask in many restaurants is a bit of a gimmick, looks the business but unless its changed every hour or so its actually a hazard, less than 60 mins of breathing through one and if you do have an infection then guess were its concentrated ?, just touch it and millions of bacteria get transferred to your hand as well, so unless they are changed regularly its a waste of time, my guess is they get one at the start of there shift and it’s the same one when they have finished in between its maybe been taken off and put back on a few times during bre
  13. You cant beat Crazy Dave’s for price, its cheap and cheerful, on that I agree but on Quality ?. You get what you pay for, personaly i would rather pay another 50 odd Baht for a decent breakie
  14. The big Japanese place, Fuji ?, is very good and good value IMO, super fresh and good quality, its opposite MK.
  15. Well I stayed for 5 nights, booked online and got a room above the dolphin pool which was ok although a bit worn and dated and only a small window so pretty dark, noisy air conditioning but very little noise from the surrounding sois, TV was very old and picture quality pretty bad, but hey I wasn’t there to watch TV !, bathroom was old but clean and water pressure ok, no wifi in rooms which was a big negative for me but its free to use in the lobby area, pools are well maintained and good for an afternoon lazing around. Got breakfast included in the room rate, which is a buffet spread, foo
