LK Metropole Hotel, Pattaya

LK Metropole Hotel, Pattaya

Each room of this modern hotel has its own balcony with city, pool and ocean views, all 133 of them.
With the beach and the array of entertainments that make Pattaya famous all within walking distance this hotel is ideal for those who like to be close to the action.
The Metropole offers a wide array of facilities including a fitness center, a spa, a swimming pool and a massage service. All the rooms are tastefully laid out and come with hi speed internet access, a mini bar and television. At the LK Metropole Hotel you can experience a little luxury and peace between forays into the razzmatazz that characterizes Pattaya.

The location is really good; smack down in the middle of Pattaya on the corner of Soi Buakhao and Soi Diana and is one of the few hotels in Pattaya with a car park.

The pool is rather small though and breakfast is not spectacular but good enough to get a day started, be aware that the 'free' wifi internet access is only available for one hour per day.

Rachaphruk Grand Hotel, Nakorn Ratchasima/Korat

Rachaphruk Grand Hotel, Nakorn Ratchasima/Korat

We stayed in the Rachaphruk Grand Hotel in Nakhon Ratchasima or also known as Korat during our trip last to Isaan or the North Eastern part of Thailand last year in January.

What I really liked about the hotel was all the souvenirs, like pictures and banners from all kind of US Air Force personal that stayed in this place, starting during the Vietnam War, when Korat hosted an airport to the US Air Force.

The other thing I really liked about this specific hotel is it's location which was on the ring road around the town center, but directly opposite the road that leads to Kohn Kaen and Udon Thani which we had to take the next day.

The hotel supports a coffee shop, a Chinese Dim Sum restaurant and a disco. On the third floor is a swimming pool and also a fitness center.

All in all a decent choice and affordable. The Superior rooms are decent and for just a couple of hundred Baht more you can get a Junior Suite room on each floor.
