Dancewatchers VT6 studio #566 - 4-month review

Recommended Posts

I recently did a long-term stay, 4 months, in Dancewatcher’s condo #16-566 in View Talay 6:

http://dancewatchers...views.html.html

 

I had used that condo on previous trips, but no more than a month at a time. If I had a live-in the studio would have probably felt cramped towards the end, but as a single monger it ended up being ideal. Plus the option of paying with credit card meant that I’d have that many more frequent flyer miles towards my next trip ;)

 

Serious mongers have different priorities than regular tourists for their accommodations, so I go into a lot of detail in this review on all the key points that matter to me. Some of these may seem obscure or minor to others, but they all add up on my scorecard.

 

Location: View Talay 6 is one of the best locations in Pattaya, right next to Central Festival mall between Second Rd and Beach Rd (both major baht bus routes). It’s only a short baht bus ride to Walking Street, as well as a very short walk to Soi 8 & Soi 7. You do have to deal with one floor of stairs (or a ramp) to get to the service elevator on the second floor, or walk up another set of stairs the third floor which has the main lobby and bank of elevators. Security is decent with guards on duty at all entrances 24 hrs and CCTV on all floors. The third floor has several laundries, convenience stores and restaurants along with a hair salon.

 

Noise: During the 4 months I only heard construction noise in the building a few times, and no more than an hour or so. You do hear some noise from the PA system and traffic cop whistles from the mall next door, but those were pretty minor and never loud enough, for example, to interfere with any video recording one might do.

 

Internet: The WiFi connection was password protected/encrypted and good enough for doing Vonage business calls. The WiFi router is in the room so you also have the option to connect directly with a cable for more security. During the 4 months I never had a problem with the connection. It was fine for doing business over the internet, such as conference calls with Vonage.

 

TV: The room has a great 42” TV with VGA & audio connections for hooking up your notebook. There was a wide selection of channels and the high-quality audio system that really made for a great theater room, regardless if the girls want to watch zombie movies or cartoons.

 

Housekeeping & Extra Towels: When you have as many as 4 girls sharing your room, extra towels quickly become a priority. I’m happy to report that there was no problem getting extra towels when I asked, and the towels were actually quite soft unlike towels at many other high-end hotels that are so stiff they’ll leave your nipple bleeding if you aren’t careful! The housekeeping staff was very flexible, pretty much able to service the room any time before 5pm including delivering your laundry. One also has the flexibility of only getting housekeeping a couple days a week, which I found to be a good balance.

 

Cleanliness: I’m a self-confessed clean freak; the first thing I do with any hotel room or condo is give everything a thorough wipe-down with antibacterial wipes, and yes, that includes the remote controls. I’m happy to report that the room was *very* clean and I never saw any bugs, ants, etc. despite many girls often leaving food sitting out overnight. All the furniture seemed pretty new and high quality with the couch and chairs being vinyl and so much easier to wipe down than cloth seating. The AC was also clean and strong.

 

Electrical & Photography: The room did NOT have one of those bogus card-activated master power switches that would cut off all power when you left the room. This means you could leave the AC on and come back to a cool, crisp room (though the AC was powerful and pretty quick to cool off the room from scratch). This also means that you can charge your computer and camera batteries while you are out. And the room has lots of AC outlets throughout for doing so, as well as plugging in extra lights for photos, etc. The room has excellent lighting throughout that are all controlled via dimmer switches next to the bed. In general, the room is very “photo-friendly” in that there are lots of places one can place cameras & tripods.

 

Kitchen: The kitchen area is modern with stove and full-sized refrigerator along with microwave. There is also a full complement of silverware, plates and cooking utensils provided.

 

Balcony: You have a lighted balcony that is convenient especially for the girls who may want to smoke or bring back really stinky food to the room. The view directly in front is mostly blocked by the mall, but you do have some view of the ocean and city along either side. One tip: the balcony doors lock, one should pay attention when one is on the balcony and the girl is in your room. It would be easy for her to lock you out and then take whatever she wanted.

 

Bed: The bed is a real highlight of the room with a high quality, king-sized mattress. All the linen and pillows seemed to be high quality. The headboard is the ideal height for additional camera mounts as well, and the dimmer switch for the overhead lights is also a nice touch. Plus the bed is raised to about mid-thigh level which opens up a wide variety of additional standing positions for one’s amorous adventures. And the closets next to the bed have huge floor to ceiling mirrors – also a very nice touch (many would say a requirement) for a monger’s room.

 

Shower: The shower is relatively large, well lit and with a glass door connecting to the bathroom. The hand wand ensures thorough cleanliness of all one’s nooks ‘n crannies. The water pressure was very strong.

 

Bottom line: Dancewatchers condos in VT6 continue to be my first choice for future trips. For a serious monger, they tick all the important boxes.

 

So, what do you guys consider to be high-priority features for a serious monger’s room – especially those that a civilian tourist may not really notice?

I just stayed in VT 6......26/.1006 for 12 nights and I gotta say the room was great. It has all as described above, big bed, great lighting, the pool is excellent and top view of south Pattaya and Patanack hill from the balcony. Mikes shopping mall a few minutes walk on one side and Central plaza right next door on the other.

Looking at booking one of these rooms for july for around 10 nights.

The website doesn't give weekly Rates, just daily, more than four nights and monthly.

Just wondering if it's worth dropping 1500baht a night, bearing in mind that I NEVER usually go over 1000!

Are there any other studio apartments in the area under 1000?

This is Beach area,thus you might be able to find small cheap hotel room around 1000,but not any studio apartmens for less than a month for that amount.

Ya definitely no studio apartments, but plenty of hotels and guest houses I am sure for less then 1500. If you have the cash I would go with VT6, especially if it is only 10 days. It is worth it just for the location, easy access to 2nd road and then a keycard to take a private walkway to beach road.

Yeah it sure does look like an amazing deal for the price, even if it is more than I'm used to!

Problem is I live in the arsehole of china with no visa/MasterCard/PayPal, just a useless unionpay bank card!

Looks like I'll have to western union it. I hate western union!

I am staying in a Dancewatcher room one floor above this in Mar 2013. It will be my first stay in VT6. I haven't read anything to suggest it won't be a great stay. I had stayed previously in the Hilton above Central Festival and the views from the balcony will be the same of BR all the way to Walking Street and of course, the water. Spectacular vista. Would love to bring Noi or some of the other PA favorites over for a swim in the balcony jacuzzi! The only thing I really know for sure is that I will never stop visiting Pattaya unless and until I can retire and go live there (in VT6).
