      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.

Siam @ Siam, Pattaya

I saw this hotel & wanted to stay there. AMAZING hotel, but comes with drawbacks. Pro's first.

PROS:

1. Amazing customer service. Pretty much from when you enter, the Thai staff is incredible. I had nothing but amazing things to say about them. They even knew me by first name and always said hello.

2. Incredible food. Breakfast, lunch and dinner- I tried it all and it was all delicious.

3. Siam @ Siam is one of those places that you book because it has great decor in your room. It looks very modern inside and designer style. I upgraded my room to a bigger one with a ocean view and it was fuckin incredible. Watching those T-storms come rolling in while in the infinity pool was like watching Blade Runner (probably not the smartest thing I could do in Pattaya, but definitely not the most dangerous, 555)

4. The 2 infinity pools are insane. I spent a lot of time there. Spent quality time with a few barfines at the pools and it was a great time.

5. Gym is top notch.

6. 5 minute walk to Soi 6 (not sure if that's a pro or con, 555)

7. No joiner fees.

CONS:

1. Location. Its away from the action, although you have 2 soapies on either side of the hotel and an amazing one across the street. I had to take a bbus everytime with a barfine, or the dreaded 3am motorbiki taxi with 3 people on it to get home from WS/LK Metro. It was a drag after a while. A friend of mine stayed in the LK Metro area and I was envious everytime I was there since that's such a great spot.

2. Burping Chinese girls at breakfast. No joke. Guys who marry mainland Chinese girls are proof that a man will marry absolutely anything. Breakfast came with my room and I'd enjoy it every morning and every morning a Chinese girl would burp like she's a sailor. It happened 9 out of 11 mornings. Chinese manners are unbelievable. Getting off the lift was always a challenge- they will swarm the elevator before you can even exit and absolutely skip the que and cut you off. We all know this, but this shit just wore me thin after a few days. Every time I was in the lobby, something rude happened by a Chinese. Unfortunately, I'd probably say 95% of the guests are Chinese, so you have to figure out if you want to deal with this shit or not. I don't think I have it in me to deal with it again, as much as I loved this hotel.

OP - First of all, many thanks for your hotel review. Well written and an accurate reflection of Siam@Siam.

Do you mind sharing with us the cost of a standard room and how much extra you paid for your upgrade? Thanks.

Gradually, over the years, I have moved my hotel location closer and closer to LK (indeed I have been staying at LK Residence on soi Diana all week). One of the advantages of the area is that there are no Chinese tour buses (nearest I guess are hordes of Chinese at PPlus and at LK President)...there are groups of Taiwanese holidaymakers who stay at Centara Azure (behind Areca lodge), but their table manners are impeccable in my experience.

@LW, don't forget the LK Premier behind Bliss and Cherry Restaurant. Beautiful hotel, spoiled by Chinese Tour busses. It really has me leery of staying at any hotel with a big enough parking lot to fit a tour bus.

Thank you. I don't remember exactly the baht, but it was prices right off the website. The only reason I know this is the bigger room wasn't listed when I made my reservation about a week before (it was there for a long time and then the day I went to book, the big room was gone). I asked at the reception desk if that corner room was available and they said yes, but nothing great about the price.

I think its smart to be close to LK- maybe even between LK and WS. Anything N of LK just becomes a hassle.

555. Smart man. Those big busses really do mess up a lot of things.

Really love the rooftop infinity pools there. Great eye candy, chilled vibe  and some decent cocktails. Great spot on a Sunday afternoon for a bit of relaxation.

Stayed at Siam@Siam for one week in the Leisure Class room (lowest level). A few opinions:

1) Both pools are great, top pool has DJ playing quite loud dance music if that is your thing. If the wind is up, forget it, at that height it becomes a gale. Patrons of the pools mainly Chinese/Korean. My bottle of Heineken was 200 baht. Hardly used the pool even though I convinced myself I would. Pool feature can be enticing, but just consider how much you are actually going to use it.

2) Location is a negative overall. On second road so baht bus makes it relatively easy to get home. The walk to beach road via the side road is short a walk and nearly always has a baht bus passing by to take you onto beach road. Soi 6 is a five minutes walk. Three soapy massage all within 200 meters. For myself, bringing a girl back all that distance became a ball ache. In practice I guess it is not a huge issue, but plays on your mind and I just prefer the comfort of walking distances. Being near Soi 7/8 just sets your night up mentally. 

3) Rooms are 3/4 star in my opinion. Note I was in the lowest class room. Fixtures fittings not the highest quality, a tacky feeling to them. However, king bed and aircon are excellent and the views from room are great across Pattaya at night (make sure you get the highest room number possible). 

4) Very few western guests, nearly all Asian. A large number of families, often with shouty children  early in the morning. Changes the atmosphere of the hotel. 

Overall I felt ‘disconnected’ from the Pattaya energy being at the Siam@Siam. Unless you desperately want the roof top pool, there are cheaper hotels offering same quality in better locations in my opinion.

I had the fortunate experience of visiting this cool funky establishment for a few hours enjoying cocktails during happy hour 2 weeks ago. Great service all round and worth a visit even as a tourist for the view from the rooftop bar. Nice review, thanks.

Have stayed here 3 times and it is a really nice place. Great pools and a top view. The Chinese at breakfast have also put me off,  wearing pyjamas, eating straight from the buffet and shouting to each other across the restaurant.

Exactly my feelings when i stayed there,i used the pool on my last day just to make sure i saw it,felt the rooms were pretty poor for the price,and the ameneties the hotel offers are a complete rip off,never seen laundry costs so high

Yes, non-patrons can use the pool without charge. Just don’t dive bomb it!
