Hotel for Indians Looking for Value for Money ”
I stayed at Flipper Lodge from 6-10 Nov 2019. It was my third visit to this hotel in past one year. Spacious clean rooms, nearest to beach among any standard hotel in Pattaya, surrounded by bars and massage parlors and Lady guest friendly hotel; these are the positive features. Its bell boys and security staff are very friendly. This is the only hotel which allows travelers to check-in as early as 10 AM if announced prior to arrival. It's reception staff is comparatively better as most Thai staffs, be at immigration, hotels or travel agencies are rude. Only this time around while check-out at morning 8.15 AM on 10 Nov2019, I came across one such rude lady staff at the reception of Flipper Lodge. I suggest management to look into it. I urge Indians to book in Flipper lodge compared to Sunshine Hotel in the same Soi-8 street which has bad AC, bad reception staff and do not allow early check-in without extra payment. It is important as all Flights of Indigo and Spicejet arrive early morn
Ok...what can I tell you about the Flipper Lodge. I have stayed there 4 times and I will be staying there next year. Very good hotel and great location. Buffet breakfast is very good and all areas of the hotel is good. My one main complaint is that they could do with more sunbeds by the pool. Some guest had to lie on sunbed matress but not the bed itself. What I paid and what I got I don't think anyone can complain. However there are always people out there who want a 5 star hotel and service, food etc at 3 star prices. Sad but true. No one can really complain about this hotel for the price I paid. I would only say that if you are with a family or you want to be in a quite part of Pattaya then you need to look somewhere else. It is right in the middle of one of the girlie bars streets (Soi's). I would stay here again...Flipper Lodge thank you again for another great stay.
The staff was GREAT !!! Security is AWESOME !!!”
I got to the hotel early in the morning. The receptionist told me that my room was NOT ready and that I would have to wait @ least three hours for my room. So I sat in the lobby, opened up my laptop and in like thirty to thirty five minutes later the receptionist tells me that my room is READY !!! When I got to my room, the wait was so worth it. This is by far the BEST room I have stayed in Pattaya. Other hotel rooms that I have had in Pattaya have been nice, but the room I had in Flipper Lodge was INCREDIBLE !!! The staff was very nice and the service overall was TOP NOTCH. I WILL recommend this hotel to all of my friends and I will certainly go back to the Flipper Lodge in the future. Thank you.
Fantastic Hotel don't let the lower stars fool you”
I think this is a very underrated hotel given some other hotels I've stayed at. First the room (building B is newer) was clean bright and just nice to be in. No bugs, everything worked including the high speed wireless internet and the plumbing. Great shower pressure. Friendly counter service and doormen as well as efficient check in and check out. The pool was nice and they provide in room towels so you don't have to hunt for someone to get you a pool towel (this could not be said for the Asia Bangkok a higher star hotel with far worse service in every possible regard). Buffet was decent but don't expect anything amazing. They charge $159 baht and it's worth that but probably no more. But they gotta make some money too. Wireless internet is $150 baht a day or $250 baht for 3 days - very reasonable considering other hotels in Thailand - the Asia Bangkok for example charges $200 baht for 20 minutes!! The internet is an investment for the hotel. One hotel I stayed at had free internet but it also didn't work all the time. At the Flipper Lodge it did - perfectly. Great location - 1 minute to the beach and 3 minutes(maybe) to the best shopping mall in town. The room was reasonably quiet from street noise - considering where it is that is no small feat. If you are a very light sleeper it may not work - I could still hear a slight bass rumble from the parting down the block. But it really is very little noise. I am not surprised that people were already booking for 3 week stays claiming it their favorite place to stay in Pattaya. People think they can walk up and book but they could not get in - sold out. I don't know why it only has a 2 and 1/2 star rating - it's much better than that.
It's my third visit to Pattaya and second stay with Flipper Lodge. Wanted to book Flipper Lodge again 2 years ago during New Year period but no room available. We were staying at the new wing this time. Room was new, clean and spacious. There's a swimming pool on the roof top where you can have a better view of the beach of Central Pattaya. Love the location of Flipper Lodge to the max. One minute's walk to the beach and Central Festival Shopping Mall. As a three-star hotel, the standard of its complimentary buffet breakfast is good enough and breakfast serves till 12pm which is a plus point. The only lacking point is free WIFI only available in hotel lobby. You need to pay if you want to use WIFI in your room. Will definitely choose Flipper Lodge again when I visit Pattaya in future.
I live in Bangkok and visit Pattaya every few months. I've made a habit of trying out different hotels in different areas. I regret that it took me this long to stay at Flipper Lodge. From the time I walked into reception, staff was friendly and had a sense of humor. The room was exactly the room I booked. The room I stayed in was newly renovated and very clean. Complimentary water and coffee was complimentary with no sneaky tricks. Breakfast was plentiful. Although I checked out at noon on a Sunday, staff let me keep some boxes with the security guard until 4pm. They then arranged a taxi to my home in Bangkok for a lower price than GrabTaxi. It was a very fair price whereas even the most pleasant hotels charge taxi fees that knowledgeable travelers would never consider. Overall, it was a great hotel and I will stay there again.
Tremendous.. 👌👌 No words more than this”
The hotel is easy to find and is only a 1 minute walk to the beach and the bars and restaurants near their location. Walking street is a 5 minute bus ride away. The hotel itself is very clean. Rooms are also very clean with large comfortable beds, good air con, hot/steady shower temperature, and toiletries provided. Free breakfast with egg, waffle, and pancake station. Rooftop pool and bar very clean with very friendly staff at the bar. Front desk and bell staff very efficient. I honestly cannot say anything bad about this hotel. If you want great hotel that gives customer service a number one priority, then I highly recommend Flipper Lodge. There are other Flipper hotels in the area. This review is for Flipper Lodge only.
9 out of 10”
Ok, I can't imagine you getting a better hotel for the location for the price they charge. I would stay there again without any doubt. lOVELY BIG BEDS, big bedroom, spotlessly clean (faultless). Food was good not just the buffet breakfast but also we ordered food several times on the roof pool. The food was very good and the price was very fair. I could not fault the Flipper Lodge and was very impressed from the start of my stay to the end. If there was anything I would change or add to the hotel...it would be to have a kettle in my room. You can get a cuppa from the 7/11 store just round the corner on Beach Rd, approx a 60 second walk from the hotel. This did not in anyway spoil my stay at the hotel and I am hoping to go back at some point and will be staying at the Flipper lodge, I would like the thank everyone there who were fantastic.
Great Hotel for the price you pay”
I have stayed at the Flipper Lodge numerous times. This is my go to Hotel when I go into Pattaya. You are just a couple 100 meters from the beach. A huge shopping mall within a 5-minute walk from the hotel. All types of entertainment nearby, restaurants, cafes, fast food, convenience stores, bars, movie theaters. The nicest thing I love about this hotel is, the nightlife surrounds it but once you get into your room. You do not hear a bit of noise from the nightlife going on around you. It is wonderful!!!
Very nice, very clean, BIG beds, modern spacious rooms.”
ok....I have stayed at this hotel twice now and cannot fault it. It is located on one of the busy streets (Soi 8) but you cannot hear any noise when you are in your room. Staff are very very friendly and helpful and I cannot fault them. The rooms in block B are modern spacious and kept clean every day by the chamber maids who do a great job. The breakfast is a buffet and they offer plenty to choose from for all countries and plenty of healthy choices. Great location and view from the roof top pool of beach road. I only hope that the prices keep within my comfort zone as I plan to stay there again in the near future. Good value for money. Thank you once again Flipper Lodge for a lovely stay in your hotel.
The Flipper Lodge on Soi 8 is in a great location, just steps to the water and entertainment. The hotel provides a free breakfast each day and there is a very nice roof top pool with a small bar and great views. The staff is really good. Just a short walk nearby is Anna Massage and Risa Massage, a Subway and the best live rock music in Pattaya at the Rolling Live 3 ! The Sailor Bar is located just across of the hotel with reasonable cost for food and drinks. The Star Bar with live entertainment is Just a short walk towards the beach and the Lucky Star Bar which also has live entertainment with an ocean view. (live music starts at 9pm now) Just a short way from Soi 8 is the Centeral festival shopping mall which has everything you would expect of a modern shopping mall. There are two Starbucks by the entrance, one has roof top seating where you can enjoy your coffee with a view.
Great Location and friendly staff”
Flipper Lodge Hotel is bang opposite Pattaya beach. The hotel was accommodative by allotting a room with an early check-in at 10:30 am. The room in the A wing was recently done and is spacious providing good views of the beach. The local Thai food is very tasty, but the fried stuff is a bit oily. There is a pool on the terrace with a bar as well.
Close to the beach and other conveniences”
I have found Flipper Lodge to be a wonderful place to stay. It is just a leisurely 5-minute walk to the beach. There is a large shopping mall just around the corner from the hotel as well as many many cafes and restaurants to be found of all different types of cuisines. You can find fast food, Thai dishes, European dishes, etc. If the nightlife is what you are looking for it is right outside the front door of the hotel! The nice thing about the hotel, the rooms are situated where you never hear the noise. Every member of the staff is friendly and courteous. Most of them speak good English and ready to help you with any question you have. I will be going back to the Flipper Lodge again.
Good Hotel, value for money and good service.”
When I first arrived I got the Impression the area was pretty 'sleazy' but then again you are in Pattaya! Despite the countless touts and the hand tugging from the girls around Flipper Lodge the hotel is great! Great Value for money, good size rooms, pool, bar and good selection on the breakfast buffet and the staff extremely helpful. I asked for them to organise a minibus to Koh Chang and they even helped me with organising day to day activities. I will be staying there again next time.
Apart from the basic of this being a great value hotel in a prime location for the main shopping centre and nightlife, I'd like to commend the honesty and trustworthiness of the staff at Flipper Lodge. After staying there two weeks previously, I realised I couldn't find my passport. The last place I had it was at Flipper Lodge. I returned two weeks later and they had it there waiting for me at the desk having been banned in by the cleaning staff. In a country where people can sell foreign passports, It's great to see a hotel with such integrity in this high tourism area. Anyone worried about the safety of their items during their stay can rast assured that the staff at Flipper Lodge seem eminently trustworthy
The Flipper Lodge is an example of an older Pattaya hotel that has undergone a decent renovation. The rooms are reasonably modern, the staff exceptionally friendly and the location excellent. It's centrally located in Pattaya, a couple hundred meters from the beach. Unfortunately soi 8 and soi 7 to a lesser extent have seen better days with many businesses and entertainment venues dark and empty. My one disappointment with Flipper Lodge was with the breakfast that came with the room price. The dining facilities were not large enough to handle the crowd and I was unable to get breakfast my first night. The buffet the 2nd day was somewhat underwhelming.
The hotel was excellent. First stay with the Flipper group after many years of using another hotel brand and I must say it has improved magnificently. The rooms are very clean, bed is comfortable, the water is hot and it has a cold water hand bidet. The TV channels are a challenge as there is no channel guide but that’s not a huge deal. All the staff were friendly and helpful including the nice staff lady who pointed out how to get to the pool. The view from the pool deck has an excellent panoramic view of Pattaya bay. It would have been nice to see a sunset but coffee in the morning was well worth the view. No idea what the breakfast is like as we prefer to eat at our usual venue when we visit Pattaya.
My go to place when I go to Pattaya”
I have stayed at the Flipper Lodge quite a number of times. Foremost is the location. It is a 2-minute walk to the beach from the front steps of the hotel. Furthermore, right around the corner is the Central Festival Shopping Mall. There are a wide variety of restaurants and fast food places located inside. Also, a movie theater that plays the current movies running in the cinema circuit. In addition, there is a 7-11 convenience store closeby. Then there is the nightlife literally at the front steps of the hotel. The way the hotel is set up, I am never bothered by the loud music coming from the bars located around the hotel. The staff of the hotel is amazing. They are kind, courteous and quite helpful in any situation. The rooms are well kept and clean. Great room service. They serve a buffet-style breakfast that is always hot and inviting. They have a wide variety of dishes they offer. I recommend this hotel to my friends all of the time.
So my stay at the Flipper Lodge was very nice. I highly recommend this place. I would say that the B Building is much more modern and quieter. I had a seaside view and though the view was nice, the noise from the bars downstairs was quite substantial and throughout the night. The location does not have a gym which I was a bit disappointed with as I was looking to get in a morning workout on a regular. The breakfast is satisfactory and if it isn't to your specific liking you can walk right outside the front door make a right and the Sailor Bar which is open 24/7 serves a nice breakfast for a good price. The best part of the hotel is tied between the great staff and its excellent location. It is quite literally in the middle of everything you could want/need. If I go to Pattaya again, this is my choice.
Little gem in Playful Pattaya”
We had a wonderful week at Flipper Lodge. We were on business so to be able to have a quiet relax by the rooftop pool with lovely views and get a meal at places literally on the doorstep was perfect for us. It was a lively, noisy area & being two female travellers we felt perfectly at ease. Our room was new, modern with a fantastic shower. Only downside was the need for better sound-proofing between rooms...a bit embarrassing! All the staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Breakfast was fairly simple but adequate although we felt more variation over the period of a week would have been an improvement. Overall we would recommend Flipper Lodge to couples and families and will definitely go back there again.
