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. Wanting to be near the action - I found a report on The Classroom - the ex GoGo up from The Penthouse, which was, in a past time a place to stay when Pattayaland was in full swing. Seems it is now a well placed accommodation option - would wonder about noise levels though - anyone know it?
  2. Can confirm TF-Heinz comments - no sign of a start up on the ex Haven site - Reception staff "thought" that Sandy Spring owners had bought it but there was a lot that they chit chat about all day so maybe, maybe not.
  3. Stayed at the Sandy Springs last year and had the noise in the daytime of the Haven being knocked down. Can anyone advise if this has been completed or is there a new hotel being built that will completely block out the views that were available from about the 6th floor up?
  4. Am really glad to hear that there is now one near Central as it will save me going to the Big C and finding that the one there is closed. Have eaten at the Big C one many times and enjoy their large cocoanuts to go with their great variety of dishes. What is the timeline on the Big C redevelopment? - will be heading to Pattaya in June which roughly speaking is 88 days and 6 hours before touch down.
  5. Stayed at rhe Whitehouse in Soi 13 in Feb / March in a great room with kitchenette and lounge. Also broadband internet.
  6. Absolutlely bloody marvelous, a golfing fest at the same time I am in town!! doghaus, well done, great timing - hope it's not too late to join in. Will be up for all the fun with the possible exception of the road trip. Will see you at the registration on Monday night. Will not be in town soon enough to line up partners (golfing ones!) for the pairs and Ambrose so please put my name in the pot. Cheers and look forward to meeting you. Bryan
  7. Lemons said: Ma Maison is a much smaller place - about 24 rooms I think. The high season rate is 900baht for a room and 1100baht for a suite I think What are the suits like? and what price? Cheers Brewmaster
  8. Great post Pete, maybe it should be copied to a wider audience in the FAQ or Members Forum as I do not usually read the Expat Issues and this should be kept "live" for any newby eager punter. Agree 100% with you post - know the country / market; know the type of business and, as Cowboy mensioned; have your accounting / cash flow etc systems in place - most of all do not be under capitalized.
  9. Thanks guys, definately need the eye test and like the idea of perscription sun glasses. Seems like they are cheap enough. Thanks for your help
  10. I see heaps of opticians all over Pattaya but have never used them. Presumabley they all make a living, of sorts, and all have a dual price policy!!! As of just now one of me specs has broken and I am squinting at the screen - as I arrive in Pattaya in 12.75 days (approx) thought I'd enquire. Any advise appreciated
  11. Thanks guys, Greg B - only trouble with the Roof Garden is getting back there, how do you do it easily? - stayed at the RG once and, maybe due to my state on the return trips, always found it difficult to get back! Big Dusa, good to meet you on my recent trip, am now planning a short trip in June followed by a longer one in September.
  12. Have stayed at a few hotels over the past 4-5 years but have not found one with good overall sports channels in the room for watching golf, rugby and soccer. This would be great especially when the golf is in the US and is on when most bars are closed. Any recommendations?
  13. Checked it out in September this year, was in a cab and looked at the rooms etc, very sparsely furnished and not what I wanted. Went on to stay at the SunShine Hotel in Soi 8. Plus factor would be the location.
