The Pullman hotel

Pattaya low cost budget hotels

 Wongamat has a far nicer nicer beach than Pattaya, check out the Pullman Hotel. Their Beach club is a great bar with a happy hour every day from 5 to 7 pm. Excellent seafood buffet Friday & Saturday night. The Pullman is really a 3.5 star hotel in a 5 star location, & probably should not be in my Pattaya budget hotels section.

Book the Pullman Hotel here.

Pattaya Discovery Beach Hotel

This is a very popular hotel with 2 pools and a seafood buffet every night, however it is a little more upmarket than most Pattaya budget hotels.  Fantastic location opposite the beach, book A-One hotel here.

Markland is beside the holiday Inn on Beach Road


Markland is a condo with 4 floors of hotel rooms, I would rate it 2.5 stars being a little generous as I actually live in the building. Ask for a room on the south side for the best view in Pattaya. Book Markland here.

The Gentlemen’s club is my favourite Go Go bar, great looking girls and friendly hosts Robbie & Hamish. I’m sure if you say David sent you they will buy you a drink. Update, the boys have sold the club to some Russian guys, still worth a visit however.
