Busy central Pattaya features a range of accommodation, from downright seedy hotels to upmarket international resorts. On the cheaper end you have to be careful: budget lodgings in Pattaya attract a rough clientele and can be pretty unpleasant. Many have hourly rentals and counters for the mandatory registration of “new friends,” meaning prostitutes. It is always worth the extra money stay somewhere on this list. During the high season of December and January, reservations are recommended at least a month in advance.
