rooms very poor.badly expensive.
the most over priced hotel i ever stayed at. the staff seem to want to extract all of your cast. if you have a complaint they all of a sudden cant understand you.

Colonial Style Hotel that has seen better days.
Location - right next to the harbour
colonial style hotel that has seen better days - but still a pleasant option at these prices. being next to the harbour you get great views of the port and i would recommend having a beer overlooking the harbour. dining is quite expensive - even though the food looks good. the blue leopard 'night club' is an experince and like most of the hotel frequented by indian business men.

quiet beach wonderful buffet
buffet is really good
we did not know that there are two beaches in pattaya and this one is the comparely quiet one. this hotel is at the end of the quiet beach which is really far away from the entertainment area, if you like quiet this one is good for you, if you don't find a hotel on pattaya beach!

Very old hotel... too expensive
Well situated
It must have been a nice hotel in the past but is now falling appart: there were a hole in the bath, the A/C is very noisy, there were aunts in the room, the windows were so dirty I almost didn't get light from outside! And the worst part: You had to pay for Internet, even if the room are already very expensive.

A piece of colonil history
The history of the place, good view of docks, reasonable location
Liked the history of the place and the staff were very helpful but the hotel has seen better days and is now a little 'tired'.

Hotel with history
Famous brand
The hotel was once the best in Colombo 100years ago. I will never stay in this hotel if I have a chance to visit Colombo again as the room was really too old. Only hot water was available in my room. I was free upgraded to a delux room but still was not attracted - sorry

Nice hotel, but dark rooms
Historical place, good location, but not very cozy
It a confusion at the very beginning as the hotel didn't get our Agoda reservation confirmation. But everything was resolved, personnel is pretty helpful, location is good, but not the best one in the city. I think that the hotel can be more cozy and some renovation is advisable. Aircon was very noisy, so we were not able to use it at night.
