Location:

A cracker of a location right in the middle of Pattaya. LK Metro Entertainment precinct with all its Ago-Go’s and Beer Bars right at your doorstep and Soi Diana Beer Bars, Papagayo Ago-Go, Soi Buakhao, Soi Lengkee and Soi Chaiyapoon a short walking distance. Easy Access to WS via Baht Bus from Soi Buakhao and a quick MotoCye taxi (60 Baht) or Second Road Baht Bus (10 baht) to Soi 6  it really is a great location.  7-11 and Family Mart  a very short walk.

Booking:

I can’t tell you how impressed I was with this Thai run hotel. I rocked up looking for a room. The manager wasn’t there at the time but the other staff, although not really knowing what to do, kindly offer to show me a room. Here is where you need to be careful. The rooms they showed me, to be honest if you were a felon banged up at Her Majesties Pleasure......perfect. When I got to the reception the Manager had returned, realising the rooms the staff had shown me quickly showed me a room with a Balcony. If you are thinking of booking I suggest you only book a Balcony room. The rooms facing Beach Road have no windows and are a little run down. On ‘checking in’ the room that I booked wasn’t available so the Manager put me in the double balcony room. I am pretty sure these rooms are not 700 baht a night but she kept the price the same. No need to be concerned if you are booked on higher floors as there is a lift. Second floor no problems just pop up the stairs.

Security:

24 hour maned reception, dual key reception deposit boxes, some in room safes HOWEVER!! The old owners did not hand in the safe ‘master key’ so if your room safe malfunctions or battery runs low your goodies are gonsky. Room doors are not deadlocked, just standard door lock, all corridors have CCTV to reception desk, Girl Friendly with ID check. A little haphazard sometimes the ID taken sometimes a photocopy made. A young Thai lad was on during the evenings and he was very respectful and efficient. Room service staff did tend to leave the sliding balcony doors closed but unlocked.

 

Oh No:

The Aircon unit was clearly not level. Not fully diagnosed, but I have my suspicions, immediately my underlying OCD triggered. I am sure it has something to do with my Anachrophobia.  Bloody Somchai!!!! Seriously if you gave it a dust Somchai’s fingerprints would be all over this. He will be the death of me. Although, surely he has fled to the thick undergrowth of NokhornNowhere for his own safety. Now, I come from “The Land Downunder” and not many people know but the Sydney Harbour Bridge is just knocked together with some left over mine shaft girders, fencing wire and discarded coat hangers and the Sydney Opera House is just a few recycled RSJ’s, barbed wire and some shade cloth but they all tend to serve their purpose. One afternoon I am relaxing and watching my favourite comedy show “The O’Reilly Factor” on Fox, bloody hilarious stuff by the way, and I hear this ‘drip, drip, drip’ As I was watching O’Reilly I thought I had been ‘rendered’ by the CIA and ended up in Guantanamo Bay and being ‘water boarded’ but on closer inspection the Aircon unit was leaking, there is a pool of water and all the drapes are soaked. With the greatest respect Somchai you’re as useful as two left footed gumboots.

 

IMG_7893.jpg

I give you Exhibit A. Crooked as a dogs hind leg with packing stuff on left corner. Fairdinkum Somchai!!!

 

Cons:

The WiFi went down late one night and wasn’t up and going till around 3pm the following afternoon. I have a backup USB WiFi Dongle. No Jug (Kettle) I have my own travel Jug. ALL power goes off on leaving room except for the fridge so recharging batteries can be done by using the fridge power point. Took a little while for the Aircon to bring room temp down but then it was fine. No website as yet.

 

Wrap Up:

What surprised me most about the Thai run PS Apartment was the genuine friendliness and an eagerness to present their product, quite extraordinary. Most Thai run hotels if you ask to see a room they act like you’re out to steal their first born child. Always pleasant smiles not those “I have to smile but I’d prefer to kick you in the nuts’ smile. It was right across the board too, Bar staff, room staff and reception staff all genuinely friendly. Out of all the places I have stayed I think The Devonshire Guest House & Restaurant and PS Apartment provided exceptional Thai staff. If you asked a question or reported a problem you didn’t get that look like you had suddenly sprouted another head. I reported the leaking Aircon it was fixed before I got back to the room and even a follow up friendly enquiry from the manager ‘Why’ to check that it was working okay. Would I book at PS Apartment again. Ha Ha too late already have for my September trip. It could become a real fave.

Yes I agree an excellent review!

 

I stayed here for 1 night when I arrived in Pattaya without a hotelbooking many years ago.

Unfortunately all rooms with balcony were full so they gave me a small inside room with a small window facing into the hallway.

It was quite noisy as I could hear dogs barking and motorbikes roaring by all night outside, so I checked out again next morning.

 

That said your room looks alright though, I like the 2 balconies which lets a lot of light in, although the fridge looks very tiny to me, I Iike to fill mine with lots of drinks, fruits and snacks, so I'd prefer a bigger one.

I also see the bathroom is small as well with the shower as you enter, I prefer a curtained off shower-area or with the shower at the end so it doesn't wet all over the floor and toiletseat.

 

That said it's still looks OK and it's an excellent location for SLKM and Soi Bua Khao.

 

Keep it up!

 

Plahgat

 

ps the first of your honeys looks very sweet!

When no money... she no give honey!

Well written review, no doubt about that. I will however not stay there as i like to have bigger rooms and showers. Also, i would probably end up coming home late night, piss drunk, grabbing some girl too close to the apartment and will have to dodge a few bullets in the remains of my stay :GoldenSmile1:

Good review, love the area but don't think I would like to be right on Soi Diana, I have stayed at Areca 7 out of my last 8 trips but now found a guest house behind areca brand new very nice, room size doesn't bother me as much as bathroom and the shower layout and now price, Areca although price has come little three times the price of my now favourite guesthouse although already getting booked up fast.

Thank for the review, was the bed not made of thai concrete?

 

I know what you mean mate. Thai beds are rock hard,

 

All good here though. The bed was Falang friendly. Not like concrete.

Great review!

 

So even though this is called an "apartment" it is really a hotel (there is no kitchen)? I take it there is no pool? Great price. I will need to consider it.

Soi LK Metro and Soi Diana are noisy, esp the recent infux of agogos in Soi LK.

 

But the rate is very attractive. Many small hotels in Soil Buckhao and around are higher than that rate.

By chance, do they have a monthly rate? Great review. I am sure a little noisy but I can sleep

through just about anything and it is a great location and price.

Looks every bit as good as the Nest ( where I stay ) priced a bit higher though, with my booking for next week being only 500 a night.... no lift though...

Robins Nest quoted 900 baht for a room.

I do have the weekly monthly price.

I will check my notes but I think it was 7000 baht per month.

Let me check though.

The manager 'Why' is excellent and really replies quickly.

Lol just don't give actual dates on an inquiry because she is so keen she books you in.

 

EDIT: Man was I wrong:

 

7 Night booking 10% discount

 

Book 1 Month 15,000 baht

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
