LK Residence
Ranked #132 of 458 Hotels in Pattaya
Reviewed 20 December 2011

I stayed at the LK Renaissance for three nights.

Pros:
Good location
Comfortable bed
Free wi-fi in the room (one of the reasons I chose it over Tim Boutique Hotel)
Nice pool area, albeit pool is small
Studio room was quiet and had a nice view of big trees in vacant lot

Cons:
Front desk people were indifferent and not friendly - check-out was especially bad.
Linens were old and tired
Breakfast was mediocre (for the price of room)
Bathroom was in bad condition - no shower curtain, mold in corners, water pressure
Low end bathroom amenities (soaps, etc.)
Furniture was a little tired

I probably would not stay here again unless the price was a lot lower.

Room Tip: Ask for a quieter room in the back

Given your choices in Pattaya, this is not a really bad place. It's well located, the lobby and the pool are quite nice and the rooms are decent. The staff is generally friendly. And surprise, the minibar isn't outrageously expensive. You could definitely find a worse value for your baht.

But this is why the LK can't be anything other than average in my book: The place, by virture of its location, is always noisy. You've got to bring your earplugs if you turn in before 2am, period. I know it's Pattaya, but you can find a quieter hotel of similar value. The rooms are in need of maintenance (paint, grouting, upholstery, etc.). The breakfast is an 'order off the menu' place of spectacularly mediocre possibilities. Finally, I extended my stay a day, but the front desk wouldn't hear of giving me my pre-booked rate on the additional day, and charged me the full walk-in rate--which is the fastest way I can think of for a hotel to prevent me from recommending them. Give another three or four star hotel in the area a chance before trying this one.

This hotel is centrally located in Pattaya city. It is clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay there. The hotel staff are friendly.
I recommend you to ask for a quiet room not near the street if you don't want to sleep with the music of go-go bars nearby in the night.
Highly recommended.

Yeah I know it's not the 4* that might have come to expect from other reviews but I couldn't put it as "very good" because of a couple of gripes. Firstly the older woman taking breakfast orders is a miserable, rude bitc* to other Thai guests and thats just not acceptable. If she doesn't like the service industry maybe she should go and clean toilets or something. The shower holder was broken and the bed a little worn. Yeah, I know, it's Pattaya what did I expect. Funny thing is I was going to book another hotel but I read a report that "prostitutes where running down the hallway giggling!" I thought that was handy, you wouldnt even have to go out, you could just flag them down outside your door like a taxi and go for a ride! The other thing I liked about the LK is they had condoms in the bathroom with a little LK Hotels sticker on them. Them must reenforcing them motto, "LK Hotel, where the customer comes first!"

I have just stayed at the LK Renaissance for the 3rd time. It is a small boutique hotel very clean with reasonable priced rooms and an adequate breakfast included. It has a nice swimming pool for cooling off in. All staff are friendly and it has free wi fi access. Friendly bars are located over the road and plenty of restaurants within 5 minutes walking. Shopping is nearby with Mikes department store - something for everybody- cheap or there is Central 10 minutes away. Paanan massage shop attached to hotel offers excellent professional massages to get rid of the sore spots after golf. Close to money changers. Take along the address of hotel in writing for transport drivers.

Room Tip: Studio rooms are adequate although superior rooms have same with bit of extra room
