“Best deal in Pattaya”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2011

I have been going to Pattaya for 20 years and stayed in a lot of cheap places in this price range, A good all round deal is my priority, for the last 6 stays of 1month each the 18 coins has been my choice, a discount of 15% for one month is given,preferably a 4th floor room on the right hand side without view is my choice ,they are usually quiet rooms and can be changed should the other guests be noisy,best to tip the maids early and be polite and you will receive new linen,there is no wifi at this level and can only be used in the reception area,the cafe on the ground floor is well run by a Scot,there are good special price meals daily

i was stuck for somewhere to stay as the hotel i normally use was fully booked so i tried this place around the corner i lasted 2 nights and just had to move on
linen and towels very clean but that is the only thing i can say good about this place the rooms were terrible noisy with a selection of bugs as for the people that say they never saw any i would say (you should have gone to specsavers) as for the food i tried it have had better nothing special the good thing about eating there is the bar manager have never seen him sober
bar staff are very friendly except one that thinks she is a pimadonna the rest are very nice especially the one called Ying all i can say is WOW as for staying there again sorry would sooner use Salvation army yeah its that bad

Over the past 20 years I've lodged at scores of establishments in Patts and this place for what you pay in comparison to it's near neighbours comes out on top.
My room was spotlessly clean,quality bed linen,odourless.Some street noise.
Standard British fayre in the coffee shop,the limited Thai menu I found to be of a very high standard.

I've been traveling to Thailand for three years now and I have stayed in many hotels in Pattaya and Bangkok and I know a good hotel (by Thai standards) when I see one . . .
I know several friends of mine who have stayed at The Coins and even recommended it. So when I was asked for 3300 baht for one night to stay elsewhere I decided that it was time to give it a try.
The hotel is in a good central location and on a main thoroughfare with baht buses readily available. There is a ground floor restaurant which is popular with British tourists and ex-pats alike and prices are reasonable.
Now for the bad news. . . My room on the second floor was apparently separated from neighboring rooms by cardboard walls and an even thinner door. If listening to other guests' nocturnal activities floats your boat then this is not all bad news I guess.
The bathroom was home to a several colonies of insects but only had cold water. The bed felt like sleeping on a baht bus floor and the curtains smelled so badly of stale cigarettes that even the mosquitos that live in there probably had lung cancer.
I stayed for three days and ate eggs for breakfast in the restaurant twice. On both occasions, I was ill four hours later (I tried twice as the food was highly recommended and I just couldn't believe it).
In conclusion, my friends apparently have lower standards than I do, no sense of smell and cast iron stomachs. If your budget will not stretch past £12 a night in peak season then consider it. . . Otherwise, Avoid!

I am currently staying at the 18 coins hotel
Good value for money
Friendly and helpful reception staff
Clean room and linen every day
Apart from the rooms being a bit small - everything is great and good value for money
Big Problem - The chambermaid on 4th. floor is a petty thief and although I have twicw reported her to management , they are unwilling to act.
It reall is a shame because without this problem - the hotel would be excellent - both for comfort and value

Sorry to say did not feel safe in this hotel at all very glad to leave , the staff are crooks and rooms not too clean,no lock on window open to bandits,have people trying door handle late at night when asleep,much cheaper and better honest hotels near.
Never again my nerves was drained my girlfriend in tears but smiles when we left.
