      Forum Upgrade March 2017 - Hints, Tips and Complaints   19/03/17

      The forum is now up again and running after the upgrade - there is still the task of searching for updated versions of apps and plugins from the old version and then download, upgrade and configure    Please note any issues outside of this to this thread here where the Site Admins can then work out what needs to be reinstated when possible.         Thank you for your patience and hopefully we can provide updates on progress

  1. The Revolut card used to be a decent deal, then in January they changed the terms. They had already listed the Baht as illiquid , they then made it a £200 fee free per month limit (used to be £500) at ATM's before adding charges. At that point I looked elsewhere and went for Monzo, which has a £1000 per month fee free ATM limit, max £250 a day withdrawal. Now I bring the Monzo, plus cash and TC's.
  2. If anyone is after a condo around the 1000 baht price, I just turned down one at the Centric Sea, on 2nd road. For only the following 2 reasons: 1 no in room safe and 2. the cleaning service is 600 baht a time (room does have a washing machine tho) Here's the link, 14 nights £293 inc all fees and utilities: Pattaya%2C Chang Wat Chon Buri%2C Thailand&s=kJRYQQ4F&check_in=2017-05-29&check_out=2017-06-12
  3. Having stayed at both, definitely preferred D Hotel. My reasoning: Staff were better, friendlier and more efficient, they have a decent priced little restaurant on premises, they sell cheap (by hotel standards) cold drinks, I asked if they had a bottle opener when I bought a couple of beers there and was given an opener to take to my room. Air conditioning is also not as noisy as Lk's. You get a sink in the room and a clothes horse on the balcony for drying. No microwave in room but you can use the one next to the lift on the ground floor and you get free tea and coffee when on the computers at reception.
  4. I would book online. Last I looked Expedia had a cheaper deal on those 3 hotels than Agoda, There are codes for 10% off as well, if you join Expedia and possibly even codes for downloading and booking through the app as well on selected hotels, see link below:
  5. April, March or August hotels maybe, not too far from your usual location, March is pretty cheap at the moment, although the other 2 are slightly better located.
  6. The D hotel:
  7. Not my video, but watched it myself before booking, I had what looked like the exact same room in the video. I'm due back in Patts shortly but there were no rooms left for my dates. I hear the D apartments whilst a bit older in the soi behind the D hotel are good too.
  8. I thought the place was spot on when I stayed there in October, good size fridge, comfortable bed, 2 seater leather chair, sink in room and clothes maiden on the balcony. good lighting in the bathroom, decent TV and channels, good and quiet aircon and fan too. safe in room, hot water pot and free coffee. (No shampoo or soap in bathroom but that is a minor thing as i prefer to bring my own, maybe buy a nice shower gel for the ladies is my advice) The lobby has a decent if modest (in menu) place to eat, room srvice (but only till about 10ish if i recall) beers and juices in the fridge in the lobby at reasonable prices too. microwave next to the lift if you want to heat up some takeout as well. get a good yet cheap massage over the road from patty, lovely hard working lady. Also cheap to get washing done opposite the entrance. If you want to get to central road it is a 100 yards on the right from the soi entrance, want 2nd road? Just walk forward from the soi up past the white picket cafe that does British food.
  9. D hotel around same price, good rooms, staff and pool, quiet soi yet on baht bus route not far from the entrance of soi bukhao and central road.
  10. Apparently If I recall correctly, they got banned for spamming their services on here. There are some reviews but mostly negative ones if I recall. I do know that despite the hedonistic nature of the place sounding appealing in theory, the reviews about the overall ambience put me off, especially as so many other places to choose from. If you go to the hotels section of the forum and type penthouse hotel in the search bar you will find quite a few mentions, the link below is one of the latest threads.
  11. I tend to book and pay my first week online through a company like Agoda, Experian, etc. After that I generally book the same way again if i like the place and the price has no disparity with the walk in price, if i decide not to stay longer, I go look at a couple of other locations from my shortlist, Having first checked prices online, I compare them with walk in prices and if cheaper on line I pay online if cheaper at the desk I go withdraw money.
  12. Your missing that he literally has a link on his last post (the one before yours), maybe you are on a phone and cannot see it? if so I will post the page link below:
  13. D Hotel and D apartments both have 2 seater sofa, room service, swimming pool, etc. Balcony rooms are 1000 baht, same price in D apartments non balcony in D apartments are 700 baht tho, those prices were at the front desk at the end of September, price is higher on Agoda, but still reasonable. Great location in a quiet Soi too.
  14. Just got back from staying at D hotel, room was identical to the one in the pictures above, Initially I booked online for a week but then re-booked at the desk as I was very comfortable there. so here is my opinion on the place: The staff were very pleasant and helpful, the room had a comfortable bed and a decent 2 seater leather chair, the aircon was quiet and very satisfactory and there was a fan as well. They do not provide complimentary shower gel or shampoo, no big deal as I always bring my own, the shower was hot but the sink water was not, just lukewarm. They do provide mini soaps and also shower caps for the ladies in the bathroom, lighting is good too for shaving and they have a socket handy for the electric razor as well The room service is decent but limited in choice and stops at around 10pm, however there is a microwave by the lift in the lobby which you are free to use, there is also complimentary coffee in the lobby near the computer section. The room has a good size heater/ kettle and you get 2 free coffee, creamer and sugars a day. The room has a good size fridge, they do not stock it with anything more than the complimentary 2 bottles of water, which I like and even if you don't drink it they leave 2 more waters the next day. The lobby has a fridge with reasonably priced drinks and you can ask at reception for a bottle opener, I recall a large Leo was 70 baht and a soda water was 15 baht. The TV has plenty of channels, the kettle is good, safe is spacious enough for a laptop, There is a deep sink in the room as well which is unusual but handy and an airing maiden on the balcony for drying your clothes. The area itself is quiet and there is a little massage shop opposite which charges 99 baht for a foot massage, the small, older lady there (early 40's and works alone) is really sweet and worth inviting up to your room for a massage in my opinion. Overall this place is well worth a stay and I find if you book at the desk you can get the room for 1000 baht a night (same as D apartments balcony rooms in the next street, that place also has non balcony rooms for 700 baht) which is cheaper than online, however this comes at the cost of cleaning every 2 days (they give you 4 coffees, 4 towels, etc) instead of every day. For the price this place is very worthy of anyone's consideration, great location and a bit of a hidden gem.
  15. 2,700 judges and prosecutors, thousands of police, over 6,000 armed services staff among those arrested or relieved of duty (prepared list), not including all the journalists and bloggers and other army staff that he had been targeting prior to the "Coup" attempt and the 2 planes flown by rebels that did not shoot him down or even force him via threats to land other than Istanbul? "Erdogan himself even calls it God sent", actually celebrates the coup attempt as a good thing, Ataturk's legacy is dust. Germany and Greece are about to get millions more migrants i think, especially as Erdogan won't like the perceived threat about bringing back the death penalty he just received. He is a petulant would be dictator that acts with spite when offended, this does not bode well. Erdogan pushed this coup using existing plotters, encouraged it then sank it, he has a lot of form already for this type of thing, anyone remember what happened after Erdogan got pissed at Shimon Peres in Davos in 2009? Thousands greeted him at the airport waving Palestinian flags, the metro hours having been mysteriously extended for that day only. Even in a city as bustling as Istanbul, it would normally be hard to find thousands of Palestinian flags at 3 a.m.
