March Hotel

Recommended Posts

Has anyone stayed here or is currentlying staying there? I was debating booking here or sticking to April Suites. Most reviews complain about the location but looking at Google maps it doesnt look too bad. How is the walk through the soi to second road?

i stayed there in december for a few nights, its about a 5 minute brisk walk onto pattaya klang and the same to second road, there are motorbike taxis close to hotel if the walk is to much for you, it's a lovely hotel with everything brand new  would stay there again for sure.

 

Also the bed is very comfortable must be one of the best beds iv slept in pattaya.

Good hotel, cancels out the slightly annoying location.

On the ground in Pattaya? Arriving Soon? Have LINE installed on your phone?

 

Join the (unofficial) Pattaya-Addicts group on LINE and meet a fellow monger for a beer or 10.

 

Pop into see Larry at babydolls or noddy at butterfly bar to be added.

Thanks. I think I'll go ahead and book March hotel for my trip in May. I've already stayed in April Suites so I want to see what their new hotel looks like.

 

I'm gonna assume since it's the same management they have the same policies as April? 2000 baht refundable deposit and 500 baht for a second girl. Which means I'll not get it back since I enjoy a 3some every once in a while lol

Agree with everything except the 5 min walk to Pattaya Klang, I would have to say tops 3 mins.

 

I stayed on the 7th floor.. love all the amenities everything is pretty new, first place O have stayed in that has international sockets for your electrical devices and definitely the best bed I've slept in, in pattaya.

 

Besides being a bit of a walk to the main roads the other negative is the room size, although the room os a good size its not as big as the rooms in August Suites.

I'll second most of posters.. it's a 3 minute brisk walk and a 5 minute slow amble to PattayaKlang.  I timed it at about 4 minutes myself :)  The hotel itself is fantastic, no complaints except the restaurant is only okay.  Everything else is stellar - bed, service, cleanliness, everything.  500 baht fee for a second girl.

 

I was not required to put down any deposit.  However, I did have to sign a document saying I'd pay 5000 baht for ruined sheets, eating Durian or smoking in the room, and a couple of other (completely reasonable) things.  This caused a minor panic once or twice when the girls I was with destroyed the sheets - on night, it looked as though a murder had taken place.  Worse yet, everything soaked into the bed.

 

No worries.. 200 baht slipped to the cleaning ladies and all was taken care of.

 

10 minute walk to Soi 6.  You really can't go wrong.  They gave me a huge umbrella the one day it was raining, gave me lots of extra pillows with no complaints (enough for the girls and for me to built a fun pillow fort!). Provided me a knife and silverware to eat and slice up my Passionfruit in the room.

 

Two thumbs way, way up. 

Always happy to help a fellow monger :)  Stay safe & healthy gentlemen!!!  :hello09:

Yes, they are building another hotel or something directly behind the hotel.  You should probably ask for a room in the front of the hotel.

My room was in the front and it was never an issue.

 

Pretty interesting actually.. watching them go and work over the month, no hard hats, no safety equipment, etc.. construction in a 3rd world country where life is cheap is interesting to watch.  You can see em from the stairwell.

 

Construction started around 9-10 in the morning and went until 5 or 6.  Might be an issue if you're at the back of the hotel and trying to sleep daytime.

Always happy to help a fellow monger :)  Stay safe & healthy gentlemen!!!  :hello09:

Bit of an exaggeration. I'm fairly lazy and had no problem with the walk to Pattaya Klang or Second Rd.

 

Stayed here in February, really nice place. Would stay here again for sure.

I'm staying there now. The room is great and I like the location.

 

But I'm having major issues with the noise and it's hard to sleep past 8am or so. The maids are noisy buggers. The occupants of some of the neighbouring rooms seem to delight in slamming their door as hard as they can. I've now resorted to sleeping with earplugs on.

 

If I really do extend my trip past tomorrow, I'm definitely going to a different hotel.

I stayed there 15th - 22nd April and had absolutely no issues, in fact I liked the place.

Originally I booked April Suites on Agoda but for whatever reason we were picked up in a car and driven to March.

 

it appeared that everyone arriving at April was driven to March, but since they were so close to each other I didn't give a shit, inconvenient but no big deal.

 

Rooms were clean and I had no noise issues at night and I know the maids were eager to get their work done quickly because it is songkran so I couldn't hold that against them as I was just as eager to get my morning boom boom over and done with and get out to play sonkran myself.

I will be staying there next trip.

Yes they are building a hotel behind, but I wasn't bothered with because it went on during the day, the only think that was freaky was the tower crane driver checking me out as I was having a smoke ballock naked on the balcony as he was climbing up the ladders 55555

Booked for April Suites inevitably got transferred to March hotel by a motorcycle. Had a big backpack and it was my first time on a motorcycle so was a bit nervous but just went with it.

They gave me a room next to the pool on the 2nd floor. If anyone gets offered this do not take it. There was noise from pump or something from the pool and there's an opening looking down onto the reception which is more noise. Every morning around 7am the building works starts and I can't sleep because of the noise.

Maybe it was a bad room because its clean and OK location.

But had a girl from LK Metro who wanted 1000 baht more because she never heard of the hotel which I declined and a girl after a session I had to walk

With her to find transport because she was afraid of the side street.

At the risk of necromancing this thread, I have seen a few complaints in the reviews for the March hotel that say there is a problem with too many Indians nearby.

Is this an actual problem? Is it the smell from the food or just rude behavior? Most importantly, does it bother the ladies when you escort them to the hotel?

There are a lot of Indians staying in the nearby hotels, including the one next door, it is a sight seeing those big buses trying to maneuver in and out of the next door hotel. One of the massage girls was glad I was staying at March rather than the one just before, she said it was "Not good hotel". "March very much better".

When getting a massage on that lane a few times groups of Indians would come in and loudly haggle over prices, which are already quite cheap, it got quite animated a couple of times, most would then leave those who stayed would chat away quite loudly. One of the more troublesome groups, 5 Indian guys, were being particularly argumentative, the girls got quite red faced and the male boss ended up shooing them out, I remember the girl who was massaging my feet saying they wanted sex on the premises and were offering a paltry amount, I never asked how much but I do note that the girls there would go to your room and oblige, just not on premises. Had a couple of real gems on that street.

I stayed there during Songkron in 2016. It was a very nice hotel. I had no issues, even with the construction going on behind it. I guess they weren't working to hard through the holiday. The staff was friendly. They even got in the spirit and hit me with water, but in a friendly way. Plus they had nice towels right at the door, when they did this. I would have stayed again on my more recent visits, but the availability/ pricing had varied enough, to make other places worth a look. Gonna check on this hotel for my next visit. The walk is pretty short to second road, so easy to get a Baht bus.

BKK112 did a nice vlog of March hotel. Rooms look great for the price. I could work with the location but the pool seems a tad small,. I like rooftop pools. BTW, a lot of people who book April Suites end up in March hotel due to overbooking...

March hotel is actually my favourite hotel in pats. location is really calm but you can get after a 5-10 minute walk fast to the busses. Its only a bit complicated to get to beach route.

Big bummer for me is that they raised the prices... before you could always get a room for 800-1000 bht... right now its rather 1300 :(

Hope it gets a bit cheaper in low season this year.

Yeah that’s about right. Low season prices tend to be excellent, high season relatively less so , so shop around. Still, better than the vast majority of other hotels in it’s high season price range.

March hotel is a great hotel. Spacious rooms, good service, gym, pool and sauna. Nice food as well.
Must point out a couple of things though.
The street itself (entrance to the hotel) smells pretty bad. Everyday walking out of the hotel you will be hit by the stench from outside.
If Indians annoy you (as they do me) ...try and avoid this hotel. The hotel itself had hardly any Indians staying there but the block is covered with them. Also avoid the massage parlors there (as mentioned in above comment).
I have been to Pattaya many times now and most Indians there have put me off going again.

How is the March hotel compared to Pattaya Blue Sky? Price and review level on Agoda, are almost the same. 

Not sure which one i should choose. Important for me:

+ nice pool with bar, basic gym for cardio, big clean room with balcony.

not important:

- location I like to walk or take anyway a moto, noise around, food in the hotel.

:Thanks3:

    • 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.
