UPDATED list of girl friendly hotels in Pattaya.
Welcome to Pattaya. Some people love it, some people hate it.
It is impossible to go out in this city, particularly at night without noticing the very large population of prostitutes- whether they are bar-girls, “freelancers” along Beach Road or any other place where tourists are likely to find them- more than willing to go back to your hotel room for a relative pittance compared to Western prices.
The problem is however that some hotels, especially those that are targeting families, will charge a fee if you bring a visitor back to your room, and this can be as much as 1500 baht.
Below is a list of hotels that at the time of writing did not charge a fee for unregistered guests and are deemed “guest friendly hotels“. There are plenty of girl friendly hotels near Walking Street, hotels along Beach Road as well as hotels in North Pattaya, Central Pattaya and South Pattaya. We have also updated this list to include guest friendly hotels in Jomtien. Many hotels are now offering free Wifi and when this is the case, it is indicated by the mark next to each hotel.
It is recommended to book the room for 2 people if you are planning on regularly having guests as the room rate is generally the same for one or two people. Generally if a hotel is bar-girl friendly, it is also ladyboy friendly.
Prices quoted are from mid- October to mid November, which is just coming out of the low season.Prices in the high and peak season may be higher, especially for the higher end hotels.
