      Nude or not nude, that is the question   01/05/18

      An inordinate amount of the Moderators Teams time is spent on ensuring inappropriate images are removed from the forums where necessary as per Rule 29. On investigating why people have posted nude images in a non-advanced area, the vast majority of the feedback we've had has been "I didn't realise where I was".  Therefore, we have added a visual indicator to help you quickly identify whether you are posting in the advanced or the non-advanced area. If you are in an advanced area you will notice the page background is now a pale green - green for go.                               If you do not see the green background it is your responsibility to double check where you are on the site prior to posting any images/videos. This is doubly important for those using Tapatalk due to the fact we have no control over the Tapatalk theme (i.e. Tapatalk users will not see this visual indicator). Offenders will be sanctioned.

April Suites or March Hotel

Recommended Posts

allwet

Has anyone stayed at both of these properties? Which do you recommend? April Suites has been my favorite hotel since the closing of Pattaya Bay Resort (RIP my sweet darling). I'm thinking of trying March Hotel this time around because it's newer. The only thing that concerns me is that it's much farther down the soi and I don't use motos.

I like April Suites for the location, the fact that it's quiet, the awesome staff and the rooftop pool but the rooms are starting to show their age and then some.

March has the better rooms.

April slightly better location.

March pool is not rooftop and gets afternoon shade quite early.

I always stay April, but wouldn't care if they switched me to March. Switched one year when my mate couldn't get a room at April, they happily accommodated my request...

Only stayed in the new building called "May Hotel". 

Only con was the soi floods if it rains too much. And as you mentioned it's a far walk from Central Road to the hotel. But for the price I paid in May 2018, it was an easy decision.

I was all booked at April Suites but changed over to march on account of the reportedly softer/better beds. I google mapped it to see the difference in location and personally that doesn't seem like a big deal to me, but there's a good thread on March Hotel which is what helped me make my decision. Ill find out friday night if it was the right one.

Not stayed at either, but its been well documented that people who have booked into April Suites have sometimes been transfered to March suites upon arrival!If this happened to me i`d be pissed off as i choose an hotel for certain reasons.Not at all saying this will happen to you, but it as happened in the past a few times!

My bro raves about March Hotel, close to Soi 6 etc.

Never stayed as I prefer South Pattaya area (start the night at Soi 6, end up at Walking Street)

I took a stroll over to March Hotel on my last stay and it is quite a bit farther down the soi and buried towards the end. But, then again I like the convenience of hopping off the baht bus on 2nd road and knowing the hotel is just a a couple hundred meters away. I also like being able to cut through August Suites to get to Soi Buakhao.

Let us know what you think about March.

March is a great hotel location could be better but if your looking for cheap and luxurious I would go here.

March hotel is better April Suites. Plus I don't like walking down that dark lane to april at night.March hotel rooms are bigger and wifi is better.

I've noticed a few BM's say this about the small Soi leading to April Suites.

What is it that makes you feel uneasy about it?

I've never had an issue and never felt uneasy.

For my preference, I can't stand the location of April Suites! It ruined a holiday couple of years ago. It's easy to get to Soi 6 from there but not much else.

I personally prefer to stay between The Avenue mall and Central Festival.

I have never stayed at March suites.

Thats surprising as many people choose to stay there `because` of its location!

A good hotel location all depends on where a person frequents regular.

Location wise i think the best place to stay is soi 10.

Well it's all relative. I am comparing April Suites to staying pretty much across the road from central festival (99% of times in soI honey Bay Breeze, the scenery, etc).. Which is where I have stayed in every other trip at less price than the April Suites .. 

So hence, for me, April Suites does not represent good value nor good location.

I just did a search and April Suites is just over 900thb while a hotel I stay at and rate much much higher (definitely in terms of location) is under 800thb in August, random but same date used for comparing both. 

So hence my conclusion.
