KTK Royal Residence Review

Recommended Posts

Currently staying at KTK Royal Residence,

http://ktkpattaya.com/home.html

 

I had heard good things about this place from a couple of people but was hesitant to book here because of the location. The hotel is in the middle of Soi AR which is a windy road that begins on Second Road Soi 4 (Just below Soi 6 on the opposite side of second road)

and ends on Pattaya Klang

The hotel offers a free shuttle to Second Road or to Pattaya Klang (Soi 16 or Soi 14, Soi 14 is at the top of Soi Boakhaow)

It’s about a 10 minute walk to Second Road and 15 – 20 minute walk to Pattaya Klang from the hotel. I’ve stayed here for about 3 weeks now and glad I booked it. The location wasn’t as big of an issue as I first thought it would be, to get to walking street I take the free shuttle to Soi Boakhoaw, and catch a Baht bus on Boakhoaw all the way to walking. Soi 6 is also conveniently located in the other direction.

 

The hotel has two pools, two gyms, and a putting green, laundry on the premises. A restaurant/coffee shop with decent food open until 10 pm.

I’m staying in a Royal Deluxe Studio for 19,000 baht a month plus 7 baht per unit for electricity and water at 30 baht per unit.

 

The room has a comfortable bed, large flat screen TV, small kitchen area with microwave and an electric kettle to boil water. Free Wifi is available. The room is cleaned and linen and towels changed twice a week (for monthly stays they provide two bath towels). If paying the daily or weekly rate room is cleaned daily and four towels are provided.

 

The staff is great and I like the hotel a lot. A couple of small things bother me though; When I first booked they told me I would get four towels between cleanings but the receptionist was wrong and monthly stays only get two towels at a time with each additional towel charged at 20 baht (I regularly purchase extra towels each week). I have to purchase my own toilet paper. The in house laundry overcharged me the first time I used them and now I no longer use them, I now use the laundry right across the street. The laundry across the street is great, they provide an itemized list with a breakdown of the price for each piece. The in house laundry just wrote a total on a piece of paper with now break down of the charges so it’s not easy to figure out what the total should be (there is a price list in the room). These are small annoyances though and for a long stay I will book here again.

 

I really like the rooms here and can highly recommend the place.

Looks clean, modern, and comfortable.

 

At around 650/day on the monthly rate, nice!

Looks like a good room. Fort me the deal breaker is getting back at night. As you point out its easy enough to get out of the place but getting back at 4 or 5 in the morning could be hairy. I agree that the place seems great value for money but getting a cab back or MBT would just not suit me.

Yes, if I'm out late I usually take a MBT back to the room, 50-60 baht. A few nights I would take a Baht bus up Second Road and called the shuttle to pick me up, most of the time I just walked from the Second Road entrance. After doing it a few times the walked felt shorter and shorter :P

Do you still walk from 2nd Road when you have a barfine with you?

 

No, if I'm taking back a barfine I'm usually on a MBT

Yes, me too,

 

I looked at that road opposite soi 6/1 and worried that it was too difficult coming home pissed, so i booked the Centara pattaya hotel which is not too far in from second road :D

 

Looking at pattayaphotoguide, it looks as if the Centara was originally going to be the Amari Nova suites, confused me

The Amari Nova Suites is on Soi AR also, just a little bit further down the road from KTK going toward Pattaya Klang

I dropped in here and looked around before and I would have taken a room had they had one available for my entire stay. I would have had to move out 2 days before departure. Anyways this place IMO is a hidden good value for the money hotel. The location being off the beaten path doesn't bother me as I ride a moto everywhere. Its quite popular for long stays as I remember a lot of rooms were booked up by those staying 6 months or a year.
