im coming to pattaya from bangkok sat morning for 3 nights

 

the sunshine vista serviced place on soi 3 seems to meet my needs but im not sure how to proceed

 

the website rate is 2250 per night--also requires a deposit online

 

but the sawadee.com can get me the same room for 1950--but they want me to pay by credit card over the web. which i am reluctant to do.

 

the other option is to walk in sat morning

 

anyone have any experience with this sawadee.com payment service? or should take my chances walking in?

 

the other hotels i wanted are already booked--areco and lk metropole

 

or any other suggestions--ill be driving myself sat morning

Why don't you send them an email (or call them) and see if they will give you the same rate as sawadee are offering? You might find that they will as they get the full 1950 Baht by cutting out Sawadee.com.

This true there are lots of rooms available now.

 

However it is ALWAYS the case that the best fill first so even when visitor numbers are low you run the risk that your first choice hotel/room is booked up. It doesn't filter down evenly when visitor numbers are low - same the gogos, when visitor numbers are low thge best are still packed and the rest have seats to spare.

 

A good example being the QV on Soi 6. I tried to book it for a friend but they were booked solid.

 

Pros are as follows

 

Walk in - can haggle and get a good price

 

Book in Advance - guaranteed to get the room of choice.

 

Cons

 

Walk in - run the risk of not getting 1st choice PLUS you could be trudging around Pattaya for a while finding one you want.

 

Book in Advance - not necessarily the optimum price available.

 

If you are not really bothered about where you stay then walk in is a decent option.

 

Dont forget the Addicts hotel booking guys - not always the cheapest for every hotel I know but quite a lot are, especially Areca which is still always popular.

Very true!! Try walking in to Pattaya Bay Resort and trying to get a room. They are always booked solid.

Our prices are the same as on the website for walk ins and we will sometimes do a deal with discount depending on the amount of days wanted.

    • For those that don't know, I did Friday meetings before many years ago,  I feel like we are missing a regular meeting for members,  I am aware guys meet at PA affiliated bars. But I want to start meeting people again, I'm inviting the guys following my YouTube also.

      The meetings is a chance to get to meet each other,  I plan to be at every meeting, I also have Dean from Dive bar that has offered to help out with a crawl after.
      The meetings will be  Monday  6 pm - 8 pm each week.  (The improvised bar crawl will commence at 8 p.m.  Dean will make his own plans for that.)

      Due to low numbers of people in town, I will start the meetings in our bars to help our girls and managers, please check back often incase things are changed.  I will be sharing the love around town later, but Soi 6 is first on my list (including bars that are friendly competition)   
      If bar owners want us to have a meeting at their bar,  they need to have a minimum of 10 girls.  I'm not dragging people to empty bars for favours.
      Please help us invite other members, it takes a while to get momentum.
      Monday 6 pm - 8pm  (then bar crawl after)
      21st March - Playpen Soi 6
      28th March - Night wish bar Soi 6
      4th April - Toy Box bar Soi 6
      11th April - Repent Soi 6
      18th April - where angels play Soi 6
      25th April -  (next bar we have open)

      2nd May - (next bar we have open)
      9th May - Cooters bar soi 6 
      16th May - Hot shots bar Soi 6
      23rd May - (next bar we have open)
      30th of May - Lust soi 6 
      6th of June - Illuzion
      13th of June - (next bar we have open)

      I look forward to meeting people again.
