The LK Royal Suite is conveniently located right on Soi Buakhao, making most of Central Pattaya’s nightlife (Soi 7/8, Soi LK Metro & Soi Diana) and attractions (beach & central festival mall) easily accessible within a 5 to 10 mins walk. The Royal Suite is one of the LK group’s older properties, which have made a name for themselves in the city by offering vintage European themed hotels with larger than average rooms at very competitive prices. While the hotel could do with some TLD and is a bit lower standard than sister hotels such as the LK The Empress, LK Metropole or LK Residence nearby, the Royal Suite nonetheless still offers some good bang for your buck.
The main building is the all suite part of the hotel, where the most expensive and generous size rooms are located. The cheaper standard room wing, of which you see my pictures in above are located in the adjacent building just next door. First impressions quite positive: At 36 square meters, even the cheapest category didn’t feel cramped, bed is very comfortable, 40-inch TV offers a wide selection of international channels (ex: Cinema 1 and Cinema 2 shows good movies 24/7), small kitchenette corner with big fridge makes it easy to stock up on drinks, good amount of storage space, AC & electricity doesn’t cut off when you leave the room (priceless when you want to charge your electronics) and good housekeeping. Negatives: Balcony in the standard wing has no view, just facing another building, slow internet, staff in reception very effective but not so friendly. Hotel amenities include an relaxing outdoor pool and terrace area on the 2nd floor with a good supply of sun loungers, a sauna and a small gym.
The LK Royal Suite Guest Friendly Policy: Dear sir, a charge of 500 THB is applied if there is a 3rd person in the room only. A single person invited overnight will not be charged. Best regards, LK Group.
