Hotel without a reservation?


Recommended Posts

What is the outlook to get a good hotel in Central Pattaya without doing a reservation at all?

I'm planning my first trip to patts in August and I am looking forward to it. :GrinNod1:  But since I'd like to spend some time in Bangkok first, I wonder if it is necessary to have a strict schedule when to change places. I don't need a lot of luxury, but I also don't want to end up in a moldy room on Soi 6. After searching a bit, I adjudged 24 7 Boutique to be a fine place. Is there a chance to get into and book a room instantly. And how about the prices then? Thanks!

August you'll be pretty safe to just walk in.

Plenty of rooms available around

You can still use the Internet and hotel sites to book rooms. Just do it whenever your schedule is set and you know what date you plan to arrive. Should be able to book rooms in the morning for an afternoon arrival

There will be rooms available. As is often advised though, it's best to have something booked for your arrival (plus two days) and then once you're on the ground, look around.

You don't want to just have a taxi drop you off in the middle of Pattaya for the first time and then be walking around in the heat and humidity with your bags, walking to and fro into various hotels searching for 'a deal'.

Especially since once you get here, you're going to want to get down to business and not waste time dicking around with finding accommodations; especially since prices may be cheaper or not.  :Dunno:


Basically, once you're in Bangkok and then decide on which day you're coming to Pattaya; just book a hotel (for at least the first 2-3 days) and your taxi (see Travel & Transportation section) and come to town with no worry or apprehension on your mind.

If you have a "target date" book using the like of Booking.com, you pay on arrival and most hotels you can cancel or amend without penalty up to 24 hours in advance of your first night booked.

I see, so I don't have to worry to much about that. I think I'll just make a short list of my favourite hotels and check it out 2-3 days before coming in town. Some nice information here, thanks a lot!

    • 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.
