This hotel, omg I've never been more suicidal before til I stayed 5 nights in Penthouse hotel, their rooms are littered with little cards and advertisements for their bargirls/drinks/go-gobar etc

I'd come home drunk, trying to turn off the lights, I could NEVER figure it out, their lighting system in your room is like a go-go bar lighting, always blinking red and blue lights etc etc, gogo bars are fine I like them, but not in my hotel room where I want to sleep

The beds even have tons of shit on them, like flyers and cards and like 10 pillows that all sucks!

Man I wanted to gouge out my eyeballs in this place!! LOL

But, only good thing I can say about it is it's good location, and does have free wifi internet, but i'll NEVER stay there ever again, oh and the girls in their gogo bar sucked too btw, not too hot

I have not stayed at the Penthouse Hotel, but have walked by it a number of times. Why in the world do you want to stay in the gay section of Pattaya? It is noisy, crowded, dirty. Go Go bars, both boys and girls next door to your hotel? Not my 1st choice. Here are a few reviews on the Penthouse. I vote that you re-consider your hotel choice. There are dozens of hotels in the same price range that have pools, close to the beach or walking distance to the entertainment areas. I would do a bit of research on pick another place to stay.

Right I've done some research and will book xmas at a nice posh hotel with a private pool in Koh Samui- cheers for the heads up VegasMike.

HOWEVER after reading reviews about the rat infestation and the gogo dancers etc etc i think i will still book one night at the Penthouse as to me it looks hilarious and I think i kinda know what to expect. and i think i will always wonder what it would have been like

(I loved the love hotels in Japan and the brothels in Vietnam)

- wish me luck!
