i have stayed at both of them on 7 and on 8 just because of their location and the pools on the roofs , basically because until about 2-3 years ago Sois 7&8 were still rocking to some extent , also Eastiny were good , and they werent far to drag my drunken arse home , but since the downturn in bars in the area i find the soi Lengkee , Bakao area a better option for partying and for the prices of rooms

"And were you pleased?" they asked Helen in Hell.

"Pleased?" answered she,when all Troy's towers fell;

And dead were Priam´s sons, and lost his throne?

And such a war was fought as none had known;

And even the Gods took part; and all because

Of me alone! Pleased?

I should say I was!"

Stayed here years back, good old days.

 

My advice is soi 8 is now a very poor soi & not what it was.

 

Last time I was walking down soi 8 it had many lady boy bars & most bars closed or boarded up.

 

I took some pics from memory.

 

Sad for me as soi 8 was the best soi for me.

The building B is good to go, 2 stars hotel with 3 stars standard. And location is good for shopping too. If you need a place for sleeping, this place is enough.

Jack Frost I can not totally agree with you. Ofcourse, soi 8 changed unfortunately, but if I know have only one bar full of LBs. Yes it is not old good soi 8, but still is alive and You can find still good bars.

FL is good hotel.

Hmmm. Mixed reactions!!

 

Having the whole of Pattaya to choose a hotel from, I chose Flipper House. Girl-frieldly Reviews that I read and the proximity to action (beach road, Soi6, soi honey etc made me select this. Did I do wrong in choosing Flipper? Last thing I would want is to be accosted by a Ladyboy every time I enter/exit the hotel !

 

Advice please ... I still have the option to change.

dont wory ,flipper house is a great girlfriendly hotel ,on a great location near bahtbus routes .

friendly staff,good brunch ,open until 1 pm.

 in soi 7 there are some bars with mixed ladyboy and bargirl staff,as long as you are not rude towards them and dont make eyecontact yourself there wont be a problem.

many repeat customers for flippergroup hotels.

only downside i can think of is wifi is not free.

Not found any thing good in soi 8 for a few years.

 

I will try to find the pics from 2013 of a very closed down soi 8.

Flipper Lodge is on Soi 8, Flipper House on Soi 7. Both belong to same Flipper Group and have about same prices and policies. Main difference netween House and Lodge is, that all rooms in Lodge are without balcony, but in House B and C-wing rooms have small balconies. http://www.flipperhotels.com/

Jack Frost  Flipper Lodge is in soi 8, not soi 7.  In soi 7 is Flipper House.

It is your opinion, but I am convinced that soi 8 still have plenty of good bars and entertainment.

Flipper Lodge is great and Soi 8 has picked up last few years. It's going all night including live music and is a great area to stumble home to after WS or whatever else. Yes a few ladyboys, but up to you.

Yes Lodge in 8 & House in 7.

 

Soi 7 is still fine but Soi 8 has gone from a great soi to a dot of its former glory.

 

Some pics from my last walk down soi 8 in 2013.

My favourite hotel. Girl friendly, nice pool, good breakfast (till 1pm!). Soi 7 is also nice, lots of good bars and funny girls there.

I stayed at Flipper House. Good location. Here are some pics. The only problem is there is no safe in the room. They have safes behind reception but it is hard to access after midnight if the staff aren't friendly. One time I had to offer a 100 baht tip just to access my own money.

I guess I'll have to carry more cash than planned...

flipper house is a nice decent hotel with good bf till 1 am and nice location at soi 7 which is far more active and lively as compared to the neighbor soi 8. 2 downs, 1. no safe in room 2. no free wifi, its seems the hotel is still in 20th century, pay for wi fi?

I have stayed at flipper lodge twice, there are SOME rooms that have been renovated and do have safes... the cost of the internet is minimal, and if you get a renovated room they are very nice...  second stay I spent one night in a room that wasn't renovated, it was pretty beat up and tacky...

 

I think the B wing, 5th floor is where I have had the good rooms...  no balconies, I have heard flipper house on soi 7 has balconies...
