Many people asked me what kind of apartment it was in Pattaya, where I settled for a while. In order not to answer questions every time, I decided to write a post right away, especially since I myself wanted to tell you about this place, which is almost a separate attraction. After all, observation decks are often visited first. Himself so.
I did not find these apartments right away, I looked, looked for various options, browsing in various booking systems and reading reviews. I wanted to find the floor as high as possible, and there are such proposals in Pattaya. In my opinion, according to the level of housing, The Base Condo is the best apartment in the central area, or even in the whole of Pattaya..

Price and booking
Cost in The BASE Central Pattaya starts somewhere from 1500 baht, the price depends on the owner of the apartment. Here, after all, all the apartments belong to their owners, not the hotel. By the way, that's why there is no restaurant with breakfasts, cleaning, changing towels and other hotel services. You need to understand this when you move into an apartment. Often they also charge a separate fee for electricity and water, but I was lucky, I had them turned on. I paid 1,700 baht / day. Deposit 2000 baht, returned on departure without problems.
To be honest, I didn’t find out if it was possible to rent housing here somehow, I didn’t have to, I booked everything via the Internet. There are suggestions, as in RoomGuru (link 1, link 2, link 3, link 4) and Airbnb (link 1, link 2). There are more of them, but since these are either private owners or agencies, everything changes for them, the links may become outdated, click on the map in the right place by similar names.
My modest apartment was located on the 22nd floor and had a sea view from the window. It is on the side, but you know, when there is such a roof (about it below), it doesn't matter which floor and which view exactly from the apartment. Although, I will not hide, there is something in this: wake up, open your eyes, and the first thing to see is the sea and a view of the city. True, you need to draw back the curtain, but these are trifles.
For the above amount, I got a one-bedroom apartment. There is also a separate kitchen, it can be closed with a transparent door. The living room is quite small, but quite accommodates a sofa and TV. In general, the area of the entire apartment is small, but a family of three is quite enough for recreation or even life for several months. Moreover, if there is a freelancer in the family and he needs a separate place to work, then you can always dump on the roof, there is a public Internet and it is quite fast. There is also Internet in the lobby on the ground floor, but in the evening mosquitoes live there and it is hot (do not include air condos), while there are condos in the room on the roof. Everything is perfect for me!
Despite the compactness of housing, there are 2 air conditioners in the bedroom and living room. There is a TV, wifi router, kitchen with electric stove, microwave and kettle. By the way, there is a frying pan, a saucepan, spoons / forks, plates and cups. That is, you can fully cook if you want..
With the speed of the Internet, everything is in order, the apartment had its own personal router, in the lobby and on the roof the public one was perfectly caught from the condominium. And it's great, in a couple of days I merged 60 gigs into the cloud, which can be difficult to do in a hotel.
The most important thing in this apartment is not the interior decoration, but the observation deck on the roof of one of the buildings. By the way, there are two buildings on the roof of the first (31st floor): a swimming pool (practically infinity pool), an observation room, and a relaxation room with a view; on the roof of the second (27th floor): a garden and also a room with a view. And, if the garden is so-so, then the pool and the observation deck are really a feature for which you can and should live here. If I had the opportunity, I would spend here all the time while I was in Pattaya, coming every evening to watch the sunset and sit at the computer. But I also wanted to test other hotels (and areas), so I lived only a few days.
Of course, there is also a small fitness room, which can go without it, it is on the third floor. Simple, but enough to work out. There is also another pool on this floor, the same one that was visible from the balcony. It is also quite long, which is comfortable for swimming. There is also a children's room, aerobics room, a recreation area (it is in the next building and also on the 3rd).
I almost forgot to say. The first thing that strikes when entering the building is the lobby! As in the most expensive hotels, everything is done. I don't know if everyone will be kept in good condition, while the condominium is brand new (opened in 2016), then everything is just new and new. And traditionally, there are also a water pump, washing machines and dryers near the lobby..

Separately, I will say about the area and infrastructure. The apartments are located on the second beach road (the second street parallel to the beach), that is, in the very center of Pattaya and a 10-minute walk to the sea. True, the sea here is not for everybody's taste (the dirtiest beach in the city), but it is nearby. Right next to the condominium there is a large Central Festival shopping center (and there is also a Hilton hotel with a rooftop bar), Night Bazaar, Pattaya Avenue shopping center, 7-eleven, Family Mart, a bunch of cafes and massage parlors. In principle, everything is nearby, which is necessary for those who come to Pattaya to rest, either within walking distance, or on a tuk-tuk for 10 baht. Walking Street, Ripley Museum, 3D Museum, ferry pier on Koh Lan, several McDonald's ... I can continue to list, but I will not. More, very, very center. By the way, someone said that there is nothing to breathe in the center, and so on the 31st floor it is great to breathe 🙂

Best Condo in Pattaya The Base
The base condominium. Great condo with a rooftop pool on the 31st floor. At the center of all infrastructure and life. Lived here, loved it.

P.S. I was also considering a condominium for living. UNIXX, he is also tall and modern. It is located on the edge of the central beach just like on Second Road, near Walking Street and practically opposite the pier with ferries to Koh Lan. The pier can be reached in 10 minutes on foot, convenient for those who are going to swim on Koh Lan all the time. And also close to all central activities.
