I stayed for the first time at Diamond City Hotel for five days. I selected the site based on website description. Reservation was easily made, no payment required until arrival. The price in return for value was excellent. I would have been happy with a normal room, but I received a ktichenette with burners that didn't work, but I didn't need them. Room was large with balcony, wonderful air conditioner, good shower with hot water. Bed comfortable. The hotel offered room service but I never used it. Also I opted out of having my room cleaned daily, but everyday staff delivered two bottled waters, toilet paper, and soap. The hotel restaurant was small as is the hotel, but comfortable. I usually ate breakfast there and it was excellent, service was speedy, there were set menus for breakfast. Hotel reception was knowledgeable and helpful in getting my bearings. Walking Street and Pattaya Beach were a 20-minute walk from the hotel. Nearby there were convenience stores like Seven-Eleven and Famiy Mart, a variety of small restaruants serving vegetarian, Thai, Indian, Turkish, and American (McDonalds) foods. Transportation was readily available outside hotel by motorbike taxi and tuk-tuk. Wifi was 95% reliable and slow, but adequate. All in all, a positive experience. If returning to Pattaya I would consider staying at Diamond City again!
