Visiting Pattaya on a low budget? These hotels are the cheapest guest friendly hotels available in Pattaya with good review scores (7 out of 10) from previous guests. While these hotels are nothing special, they’re acceptable if you have a very low budget and don’t mind dealing with small rooms, simple furniture and a little extra noise.

Walking Street Guest House (1 star)

This is, in my opinion, the cheapest acceptable quality guest friendly hotel in Pattaya. It is extremely basic, but costs almost nothing (last time I checked, the rooms were about 500 baht per night) and has clean rooms and a great location close to Walking Street.

If you don’t mind small rooms, this hotel can be a great budget option. There are two choices of rooms — budget rooms, which are very small at just 13 square meters, and larger front side rooms which offer 20 square meters of space. All of the rooms are clean and have surprisingly comfortable beds.

As you’d expect for a hotel around Walking Street, Walking Street Guest House is 100% guest friendly. You can bring guests back from the nearby bars without any problems, and the staff are friendly and welcoming. There’s free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel and in all rooms, making this the best ultra-budget option in Pattaya if you want to be close to the nightlife. Rated 8.1 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Overall, this hotel offers great value for money and a more luxurious experience than you’d expect for a three star hotel. Rated 8.0 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Grand Hotel Pattaya (3 stars)

Another cheap and simple three star hotel, Grand Hotel Pattaya is simple but clean and comfortable enough for a nice stay. The rooms here have large queen size beds and small balconies overlooking Soi 14, meaning you can relax and enjoy the fresh air during the day.

Grand Hotel Pattaya is a short walk from Walking Street and a quick baht bus ride away from the nightlife on Soi 6, making it a good option if you want to be close to both entertainment areas. There are no fees for bringing guests back to your room and the staff are friendly but mind their own business. Rated 7.4 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Galaxy Suites Pattaya Hotel (3 stars)

If you want to be right on Walking Street, Galaxy Suites Pattaya Hotel is the place you’ll want to stay. This hotel is located directly on Walking Street, meaning you’re never more than a couple of minutes away from Pattaya’s most popular go-go bars, beer bars and nightclubs.

Despite the location, Galaxy Suites is a surprisingly comfortable place to stay, with a tolerable noise level and comfortable rooms with modern furniture and good cleaning. Some rooms also have large jacuzzis, which can be fun if you come back from a night out with a new friend.

If you’re looking for a simple, well located and comfortable place to stay while you have fun on Walking Street, Galaxy Suites Pattaya Hotel is tough to beat.

Intimate Hotel Pattaya (3.5 stars)

Intimate Hotel is technically a 3.5 star hotel, but its facilities and rooms are much closer to a high quality four star hotel. If you don’t mind stretching your budget a little further, it’s worth paying for the upgrade compared to places like The Green View or Grand Hotel Pattaya.

Facilities at Intimate Hotel include a large rooftop pool and spacious, nicely decorated rooms with huge beds. Some of the larger rooms even feature jacuzzis, which make for a great experience. There’s fast, free Wi-Fi in all rooms and all of the modern items you’d expect from a nice hotel.

In terms of location, Intimate Hotel is on Second Road, meaning you’ll need to walk for a few minutes to get to the beach. It’s also a short baht bus ride to Soi 6, Walking Street and other nightlife areas. All in all, this hotel and its location are really good and worth considering if you want something a bit more luxurious than the usual three star options without a big price tag. Rated 8.2 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Areca Lodge Hotel (3.5 stars)

Areca Lodge Hotel is another 3.5 star accommodation option with a location just off Second Road. It’s a luxurious hotel with a large outdoor pool and big, comfortable rooms with modern furniture. I would compare this more to a 4 star hotel than a 3.5 star hotel, so it’s an excellent value for money choice if you want a more luxurious experience.

Rooms at Areca Lodge Hotel start at 32 square meters, so you get plenty of space to stretch out and relax in. The beds are big (I would guess Queen or King size) and the mattresses are soft, supportive and comfortable. The Wi-Fi is fast and easy to pick up anywhere in the hotel.

Like every hotel on our list, Areca Lodge Hotel is 100% guest friendly and has no fees for joiners. The staff are easygoing and will mind their own business if you come back with a guest, meaning you won’t feel bothered at all while staying here. One of the best mid-price choices around Second Road. Rated 8.1 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Camelot Hotel (3 stars)

Camelot Hotel is a large, slightly older three star hotel located within walking distance of Walking Street. The hotel itself is big, with an outdoor pool and a spacious lobby and several restaurants. Overall, it feels a little dated and the rooms are definitely in need of a little TLC.

With that said, Camelot Hotel is still a decent place to stay if you want a cheap and fairly comfortable room in a good location. It’s less than 300 meters to the beach, a few minutes to Walking Street, a very quick walk to the baht bus stops and generally a convenient hotel. It’s also 100% guest friendly, with no joiner fees for anyone you meet in Pattaya.

Add free Wi-Fi in all rooms and Camelot Hotel is a decent option, provided you can tolerate the slightly dated decorating. Rated 7.2 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Naris Art Hotel (3 stars)

Naris art Hotel is a great option if you want a guest friendly hotel that’s away from the noise, hustle and bustle of Walking Street. This hotel is located on Thappraya Soi 5, meaning it takes 5-10 minutes to get to Walking Street in a baht bus. The journey is short and the location is actually really convenient, since there are lots of nice cafes and restaurants around the hotel.

Naris Art Hotel has a nice outdoor swimming pool that’s perfect for relaxing during the daytime. The rooms are reasonably big (even the smallest rooms are around 25 square meters) and have free Wi-Fi, soft and supportive mattresses and big beds that make getting a good night’s sleep easy. This hotel is really quiet compared to most in Pattaya, especially considering it’s only 5-10 minutes to Walking Street.

As you’d expect, Naris Art Hotel is 100% guest friendly and the staff will not bother you if you bring back a new friend. One of the best options in Pattaya if you want guest friendly accommodation that’s away from the noise. Rated 7.3 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Sunshine Hotel & Residences (3 stars)

Sunshine Hotel & Residences is a three star hotel located right on Soi 8, making it one of the best places to stay in Pattaya if you want to be close to the infamous nightlife on Soi 6.

The furniture is fairly modern and the beds are soft and comfortable. There’s free Wi-Fi throughout the entire hotel and the connection speed is fast.

Royal Twins Hotel (3 stars)

Royal Twins Hotel is a huge three star hotel on Pattaya Second Road. Built in the 90s and renovated over the years, this hotel has much bigger rooms than some of Pattaya’s newer budget hotels, with even the smallest rooms exceeding 40 square meters. It also has great facilities, with a huge swimming pool and plenty of outdoor space for you to relax in and enjoy the weather.

Rooms at Royal Twins are spacious and comfortable, but feel a little dated. If you don’t mind the 90s/early 2000s decor, this is a great place to stay. The beds are huge and the rooms have large windows and balconies giving you plenty of natural light. With this said, the mattresses are a little on the hard side, but the staff can provide a soft topper if you ask. A good deal if you don’t need somewhere super modern and want a hotel with a great swimming pool. Rated 7.3 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Welcome Plaza Hotel (3 stars)

Another large three star hotel, Welcome Plaza Hotel was built in the 90s and offers a huge amount of space and great facilities for guests. Like most older hotels in Pattaya, the rooms here are more spacious than what you’d get in a new hotel, with even the smallest rooms featuring private balconies and plenty of living space.

Rooms here are decorated with basic furniture and have all of the features you’d expect, from a TV to desk, king-sized bed and more. The bathrooms are pretty dated but include a bathtub, which is a nice plus compared to the tiny bathrooms in most newer three star hotels. There’s also a huge outdoor pool and poolside bar for guests. If you like large hotel facilities and can tolerate dated design, this is a decent place to stay. Rated 6.3 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Diamond City Place Hotel (3 stars)

Another quiet option, Diamond City Place Hotel is located about 10 minutes from Soi 6 and Central Festival Pattaya by baht bus and five minutes from Walking Street.

Rooms at Diamond City Place Hotel are very spacious, with even the smallest rooms offering 30 square meters or more of living space. The beds are large and the Wi-Fi is reasonably fast, making the rooms a comfortable place to spend the day.

There’s a small outdoor swimming pool at the hotel and a restaurant on site. One other nice feature of this hotel is that most of the rooms have bathtubs, which aren’t always easy to find in Pattaya. All in all, a good option if you want to be close enough to Walking Street and Central Pattaya but far enough away to avoid the noise. Rated 7.5 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Lido Beach Hotel (3 stars)

If you want to be in the center of the action, Lido Beach Hotel is a great place to stay. This three star hotel is located right off Walking Street, meaning you never need to walk for more than a couple of minutes to get to Pattaya’s best go-go bars and nightclubs. Rooms here are clean and furnished with large beds, comfortable mattresses and all of the features you need for a pleasant stay. While it isn’t a luxury hotel, Lido Beach Hotel definitely ticks all the right boxes.

One thing to note about this hotel is that there’s no pool, so if you’re planning to swim while in Pattaya, you’ll want to pick somewhere else. The rooms closest to Walking Street can also get a little noisy, so it’s best to ask for a room further back from the street if you want to sleep early. The entire hotel has free Wi-Fi, including in all rooms. It’s also 100% guest friendly, with nice staff who will happily let you bring back new friends to your room.

The only real downside of this hotel is that it’s starting to look slightly dated. If you want an ultra-modern hotel with brand new everything, it might not be a good choice. However, if you want a pleasant place to stay near Walking Street at a reasonable cost, Lido Beach Hotel fits the bill nicely. Rated 7.0 out of 10 by Agoda users.

W 14 Hotel Pattaya (3 stars)

LK The Empress

LK The Empress is one of the best reasonably priced four star hotels on Beach Road that’s also guest friendly. The rooms here are large (even the smallest are 36 square meters), luxurious and well fitted with modern furniture and king size beds with soft mattresses for a pleasant night’s sleep. The bathrooms all feature huge bathtubs with marble tiling and the general aesthetic is very upmarket and luxury.

There’s also a small gym with treadmills and some basic weight training equipment.

LK Metropole Hotel (4 stars)

Another “LK” hotel (there are a few in Pattaya), LK Metropole has spacious, comfortable rooms that are decorated like something you’d see in Las Vegas or Monaco. If you like luxurious, high end furniture and palace-like decorating, you’ll enjoy staying here. The huge outdoor pool and relaxing courtyard also add to the experience. This is a very fun hotel for entertaining guests and enjoy a real Pattaya getaway experience.

From a location standpoint, LK Metropole Hotel is in a good area. From the hotel, it only takes 10 minutes to walk to Central Festival Pattaya or Beach Road.

Aya Boutique Hotel Pattaya

Aya Boutique Hotel Pattaya is another good four star hotel option located on Beach Road. With modern rooms and a convenient location, this is a good place to stay if you want to be a short baht bus ride away from places like Walking Street, Soi 6, Central Festival Pattaya and all of the beer bars on Beach Road and Pattaya Second Road.

Rooms at Aya Boutique Hotel are modern and comfortable, with queen size beds and all of the comforts you’d expect from a four star hotel. Overall, they don’t feel quite as luxurious as LK The Empress, which has more of a glitzy feel to it. Still, it’s a comfortable place to stay and the great facilities (including a semi-indoor swimming pool) make it unique for a four star hotel in Pattaya.

Just like the other hotels on our list, Aya Boutique Hotel Pattaya is a guest friendly hotel with no joiner fees. You can bring back guests to your room without any problems, and the staff are friendly and easygoing about visitors. Rated 7.8 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Centara Nova Hotel & Spa Pattaya (4 stars)

Another centrally located four star hotel, Centara Nova Hotel & Spa Pattaya is set back a little bit further from the beach, with a location on Pattaya Klang Soi 12 that puts it near the center of the city. From the hotel, it’s about 5-10 minutes in a baht bus to Central Festival Pattaya and 10 to 15 to Walking Street, or less than five minutes to Beach Road.

Rooms at Centara Nova are modern and luxurious, with LCD TVs, large beds, workdesks and all of the other items you’d expect in a hotel of this quality level.

Centara Pattaya Hotel (4 stars)

Located just cross Second Road from Soi 6, Centara Pattaya Hotel has a great location close to the beach and nightlife. This is a pretty standard four star hotel with all of the benefits you’d expect from a hotel in this price range, from large and comfortable rooms to a great outdoor swimming pool and small but usable fitness center.

From the hotel, it’s a five minute walk to Pattaya Beach and five to 10 minutes in the baht bus to get to Central Festival Pattaya, Walking Street and other popular areas. A great place to stay if you want to be close to Soi 6 and enjoy four star comfort without spending too much. Rated 7.6 out of 10 by Agoda users.

From the hotel, it’s a five minute walk to Beach Road and five to 10 minutes to Walking Street, making it easy to access Pattaya’s nightlife without relying on public transport.

Rooms at the Mercure are clean and comfortable to stay in, although the hotel has a bit of a late 90s/early 2000s feel to it and could do with an update. Facilities include a gigantic outdoor pool and well equipped fitness center, plus a great in-house spa for guests. A good option if you’re looking for a comfortable but not overly expensive four star hotel that’s within walking distance of Pattaya Beach and the nightlife. Rated 7.6 out of 10 by Agoda users.

The Bayview Hotel Pattaya

Previously called Siam Bayview Hotel, The Bayview Hotel Pattaya is an older four star hotel that’s recently been renovated to modern standards. Because this is an older building, it has a lot of great facilities that new four star hotels in Pattaya are missing, such as a gigantic outdoor pool area, large garden-style grounds, a surprisingly big fitness center and kid’s play club with water slides and other fun equipment.

Rooms at The Bayview Hotel are very spacious, with large windows that let in plenty of natural light to give the hotel a comfortable feel. The beds are large and comfortable, the rooms have great balconies overlooking Pattaya City or Pattaya Beach, and there’s fast, free Wi-Fi and a small work desk inside each room for browsing the internet. The bathrooms are also large and feature full-size bathtubs — a rarity in Thailand.

The Bayview Hotel is totally guest friendly, with no extra fees for bringing a guest back to your room. The staff are completely used to people bringing guests back late at night and definitely won’t bother you or your friend.

Tropicana Hotel

Another four star hotel located right on Beach Road, the Tropicana Hotel has spacious rooms and suites, garden-like surroundings and a large pool for relaxing in during the daytime. It’s also very close to Soi 6 and the beer bars of the area, making it a good choice if you want to enjoy the nightlife as well as the beachfront.

Compared to most four star hotels in Pattaya, the Tropicana Hotel is a little on the older side. The rooms are spacious and highly comfortable, but don’t have the modern feel like a lot of other Thai hotels do. This is reflected in the pricing, as this is one of the cheapest hotels with four star quality facilities in the area around Beach Road.

Aside from the age of the hotel, the Tropicana is a nice place to stay. The rooms are very spacious and feel comfortable, with large beds and free, fast Wi-Fi. If you’re looking for a budget four star hotel on Beach Road, a short walk from the nightlife, you’ll like staying here. It’s also 100% guest friendly, meaning you can bring friends back to your room without any problems. Rated 7.1 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Holiday Inn Pattaya

Located right on Beach Road, the Holiday Inn Pattaya is a modern four star hotel with big, stylishly furnished rooms and great facilities.

There’s a large outdoor pool with views of the beach, big rooms and suites with great beds, fast Wi-Fi, several restaurants and bars, plus everything else you would expect from a four star international hotel.

If you’re visiting Thailand for the first time and associate the Holiday Inn brand with cheap, basic hotels, you should know that in Thailand it’s much more upmarket. Expect luxurious facilities here, not the usual basic stuff.

The Holiday Inn Pattaya is about five minutes from Soi 6 on the baht bus, 5-10 minutes from Central Festival Pattaya and 10 minutes from Walking Street. Since it’s at the quiet end of Beach Road, you can get a good night’s sleep without any unwanted noise, all while still being a short distance away from the nightlife.

One of two Amari hotels in Pattaya (the other is the five star Amari Ocean on Beach Road), the Amari Nova Suites Pattaya is a modern four star hotel located just off Central Pattaya Road. A nice feature of this hotel is that all of the rooms are suites with separate living areas, even the smallest One Bedroom rooms.

The rooms here are comfortable and modern, with huge beds and soft, comfortable mattresses that make sleeping easy. There’s fast Wi-Fi, useful kitchen areas in every room and a fantastic rooftop swimming pool. The only downside is the location — from the hotel, it’s five to 10 minutes to get to Beach Road, Walking Street and the nightlife, depending on traffic. A good option if you’re looking for value for money and don’t mind using the baht buses to get around Pattaya. Rated 8.0 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Imperial Pattaya Hotel

The Imperial Pattaya is a large four star hotel on Second Road with huge grounds, making it a good place to stay if you like the grand hotel experience. The hotel itself is gigantic, with a spacious lobby, garden-like grounds and several large swimming pools. It’s also a little dated — we’re guessing it was last renovated in the late 90s or early 2000s.

Rooms here are very spacious and have great views of Pattaya, with floor to ceiling windows and plenty of natural light. The beds are gigantic, furniture comfortable and Wi-Fi fast. As long as you aren’t expecting a brand new hotel, you’ll enjoy your stay here. It’s also a completely guest friendly hotel, with no joiner fees and kind reception staff who will happily let you bring a friend up to your room. Rated 7.8 out of 10 by Agoda.

Bella Villa Cabana (4 stars)

Located north of Pattaya City in Naklua, Bella Villa Cabana is a luxurious four star hotel with a variety of huge rooms. Seriously, the rooms here are gigantic. The smallest rooms offer 48 square meters of space, while the larger suites offer up to 170 square meters of living space, as well as ocean views.

Since this hotel is a little outside Pattaya, the rates are very competitive compared to other luxury options. Many rooms are fitted with apartment-style features like stoves, ovens and other cooking equipment, as well as fast Wi-Fi. There’s also a great outdoor pool for relaxing during the day.

From the hotel, it’s about 200 baht in a taxi to get into Pattaya. If you want a hotel that’s 100% guest friendly but far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Pattaya to let you have a relaxing time with your companion, Bella Villa Cabana is one of the best options in town. Rated 7.6 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Siam Bayshore Resort Pattaya

Until recently, Siam Bayshore was an aging four star hotel that offered good but not fantastic rooms. However, this hotel has recently been renovated (work was completed in 2016) and is now one of the best four star hotels in Pattaya thanks to its great area right across from Pattaya Beach.

This is one of Pattaya’s older four star hotels, meaning it was built on a premium location that just isn’t available to hotel developers today. As such, it’s a two minute walk to Walking Street and about five minutes to the best part of Pattaya Beach from the hotel, plus a minute or two to the nightlife. From a location perspective, this hotel is very difficult to beat.

From a quality perspective, the rooms here are everything you’d want, with modern furniture and nice decor that’s been recently updated. The Wi-Fi is fast, the on-site dining options are surprisingly good, and the facilities include a fantastic beachside swimming pool and one of the best gyms for a four star hotel in Pattaya. Very much recommended, especially after the recent renovation work. Rated 8.2 out of 10 by Agoda users.

Amari Ocean Hotel Pattaya

Technically, Amari Ocean is a 4 1/2 star hotel, but its rooms and facilities are (in our opinion) deserving of the five star category. This large hotel is located just off Beach Road and has a great view of Pattaya Beach, as well as a good location that’s less than 10 minutes away from Soi 6, Walking Street, Central Festival Pattaya and other main areas by baht bus.

Rooms at the Hilton Pattaya range from standard rooms to large suites, some of which have jacuzzis on the balcony. The entire hotel is extremely modern and has high quality beds, furniture and in-room accessories. Simply put, you will not find anywhere better than this in Pattaya.
