Checkin: Amazing decoration and ambience of the hotel lobby, fresh flowers and welcome drink. Desk staff prepared with direct hotel booking and requests. No fuss and professional service even while training a new staff member. Bellboy service content and waiting to assist.
Room (beach view balcony) absolutely opulent with french overtones. Made for romance.
Full service kitchenette with stocked fridge and prices so cheap you wouldn't cross the road to a 7/11. Sexy bathroom in marble with 2 head shower and big spa tub. Pool located on 3rd floor and very comfortable and refreshing. Could use a bar service as a thought.
Overlooking beach road is very interesting. Comments and actions draw you to the balcony, even at 3.am. but room is very well soundproofed.
Buffet breakfast was good and as per expectation, staff attentive and wanting to assist. Buffet area manager is hotels downfall. Mean little man lacking customer service. Wanted a cuppa in my room with the amazing array of options there but only powdered milk provided. Asked the buffet manager for a small amount of milk in a glass and had to argue about paying him 70Bt to have it. Told him to stick it and bought a carton of milk at 7/11 cheaper. This man had contempt for guests. Noted on hotel report at end of stay. hope they actioned it. I will overlook him and absolutely recommend this hotel or any of the LK chain to all as first choice.

Room Tip: Balcony beachront for entertainment or back rooms if you have your own entertainment.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 March 2012

The LK Empress hotel seems fairly new, and the rooms are spacious and nicely furnished. The hotel is right on the main beach road directly across from the beach and less than a ten minute walk to the Walking Street. Ironically, I booked the room from Agoda who always has great prices and found I could have gotten a better price directly from the hotel (but that's the exception).

The hotel has a vast lobby---and---for whatever reason---the furniture is French Regency (??)(hence "LK Empress")---very ornate---which is very odd for a Thailand hotel and not at all---Thai. Obviously the owners seem to favor that kind of furniture but I can't say it doesn't feel---odd. But the rooms are a bit more restrained from the over the top furniture of the lobby. I think if Marie Antoinette took acid she might have furnished the lobby the way it was decorated. But considering that I only pass through the lobby on the way to the room---it was all fine as I realized I wasn't really in France as much as they'd like me to believe I was.

The hotel had a surprisingly good buffet breakfast---much better than I would have expected and you eat it on the downstairs patio in front of the hotel as you look out on the ocean.

All in all a greatlocation and a fresh clean and spacious room. And the staff was very nice. Price point dependent, I'd definitely consider returning.

Room Tip: The room sizes are apparently almost all the same (bathrooms change the most along with the view...

We stayed at this hotel after reviewing the feedback from tripadvisor. It is certainly worth the money spent as it is located right on the beach. The hotel decor is pretty good and room is quite spacious.

Certainly recommend for families or couples.

Room Tip: Book a room facing the sea.

The hotel is clean and very nice, specially the furnitures. Staffs are friendly. We got a good price (cheap) from Agoda and we didnt expect that we had booked a stunning hotel for that amount. Groceries, massages, restaurants and beach are near.

Stayed at LK Empress for 1 night in early February 2012. Just took a day drive to Pattaya and found the hotel. It looked new and nice. Had the staff showed us the room and being satisfied with the reasonable rate inclusive of breakfast, paid and stayed a nite. Being new the room is clean, quite spacious and the bathroom is big. Location is good as you can walk to the Walking Street at one end and to the Festive Mall at the other end. Buffet breakfast had sufficient variety of local and western food. Would stay again if rate is reasonable.
