Excellent budget hotel in Pattaya on the first line - Mike Beach Resort

Before moving to chic condominium The BaseI also lived in a rather modest hotelwhich is located almost on the first line of the central beach of Pattaya. The hotel is not new, with its own nuances, but for the price that they are asking to foolishly count on something more. For me, the Mike Beach Resort hotel is the same price-quality ratio, and it can and should be considered for budget travelers who are going to stay in the center of Pattaya.

Price and reservation

At Mike Beach Resort

I paid 1,300 baht for Standart (breakfast included). There is also a little more expensive Superior, but I don’t understand the difference between the pictures, maybe the view from the window is better. Remember, I lived in the peak season, at the end of December. In the summer falls somewhere up to 900 baht for the same number.

Be sure (and I insist) check availabilitydiscounts or special offers on the excellent Roomguru service. It will quickly and simply show you discounts in all existing reservation systems. In Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com that are much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels on Booking.com.

Interior

The hotel is 2 stars and has a rating of 8.2. I agree, and with the stars, and with a rating! Simple and inexpensive. The price for the center of Pattaya for almost the first line and two stars is quite adequate.

Now, about the nuances. The room is already tired furniture, and the appearance in the bathroom is also not a suite. In general, it is clear that the repair was a long time ago. But the most important thing is that it is clean, so “fatigue” does not strain. The whole question of what will happen next, until the next couple of years, you can stop, but if you do not at least make further cosmetics, the rating will fall.

Room of normal area, spacious. There is everything you need: TV, kettle, fridge, air conditioning. Every day, give a couple of free bottles of water, cleaning, too, every day. My balcony went out to the jay where the hotel stands. There is movement, but not very active, I did not strain the noise. From the balcony you can see the sea, but the side view. As I understand it, there is no direct sea view in the rooms, as there are no balconies on the side where the sea is.

I could be wrong, but it seems to be conditionedfloor, so it's nice to go into the building and walk along the corridors, not stuffy. Also due to this, the air temperature does not increase in the rooms, that is, I came to the room in the evening and it was relatively cool, although I did not leave the condo turned on. In a season when there is no hellish heat, you can live without kondeya at all. By the way, there is no card for turning on the electricity, so when leaving all the sockets work, you can safely keep something in the refrigerator or leave phones and other gadgets to charge.

Wifi is live, speed was normal in both directions. Not super, but worked in my arrival steadily.

Territory and breakfast

The hotel is a single building withoutterritory. You know, this is such a hotel from a series of large multi-storey hotels, which does not stand out among the rest. I even have a suspicion that the bags are going here. But I would not say that this is somehow affected. The only moment is the Chinese, but I don’t know whether they came on tour or independently. So, when the Chinese live behind the wall, it does not seem to be enough. Although again, I did not encounter noise (at least at night). In general, if you prefer small family hotels or cozy guesthouse, then you should not go here.

Reception at the hotel round the clock, it was convenient for me, I arrived late in the evening. On the second floor of the hotel there is a swimming pool (regular and paddling pool), for some reason not very popular.

The building has elevators, so the hotel is suitable for those with a sidecar.

Breakfast can be included in the room rate, andmaybe not. It passes on the first floor in the blown lobby, right there and close by. The range is not rich. Coffee, tea, chemozy juices. Buttered toast and jam, muesli with milk. Scrambled eggs and scrambled eggs, sausages, bacon, french fries, some very boiled eggs. Rice noodles with egg, steamed vegetables, vegetables with chicken, beans in tomato sauce, boiled rice. Fruits (pineapple and watermelon) and a set of vegetables for salad. Of the minuses, I note that coffee is barely warm all the time, although it is heated, and there was nothing with fish.

But in general, such a breakfast costs about 150-250 baht, so considering the price of a room with breakfast included, I understand that it is a sin to complain.

Map and location

The location of the hotel in my opinion successful. But this is a very controversial issue, and everything depends on why you are going to Pattaya. The fact is, the central beach is not very buyable, it's dirty there. And this is the very center of Pattaya, with traffic and lots of people. Now, if you need to be in the center of the whole building, if you want to live near Walking Street, if you need bars and restaurants, if you are ready to go swimming on the island of Koh Lan, the location is excellent and the most important hotel is inexpensive. After all, the neighboring Hilton’s are not affordable for everyone.

If, on the contrary, you are looking for a quiet place, then you should not book a hotel on the central beach at all. Better consider Cozy Beach (cheap 4 star hotelwhere I lived) or nearby with him Pratamnak. Alternatively, live on Jomtien or in the north of Pattaya in the Naklua area.

Near the hotel is full of cafes, small shopsand massage, there are a number of minimarts 7-eleven and a foodcourse on second beach road (and there is a supermarket), 10 minutes away is an inexpensive restaurant. To the central beach and the seafront walk no more than 5 minutes walk. Prior to Walking Street and the pier on the island of Koh Lan drive 5-10 minutes on the Songteo and it costs 20 baht per person.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
