I highly recommend this hotel !”
Hill Fresco is a very good value for money hotel, located in a quiet area between Pattaya and Jomtien, 5 minutes walk to the beach. The small mainstreet leading down to the beach, have several restaurants, fruit shops, farmacies, grocery store and minimarts. I stayed in a recently refurbished deluxe room, nice balcony with table and chairs overlooking the pool garden area. Rooms are clean with comfortable large beds, big refrigirator, coffe/tea making facilities, big TV screen with HD channels and good WIFI in all areas of the hotel. Good breakfast buffet with both hot and cold dishes, fresh fruits and you can also eat outside under shady palm trees. A very nice and clean pool area with jacuzzi and sunbeds including beachtowels. All staff are very friendly and attentive, always with a smile.
Hill Fresco is a very good value for money hotel close to Jomtien beach. Good breakfast buffet both hot and cold dishes and can eat outside. Good outdoor pool area and can smoke and enjoy drinks from the bar close by. Can order food and eat at the hotel or the room all day long. Room deluxe with view of the pool is very nice and clean. Loved my stay also because of the friendly attentive staff.
Comfortable, terrible internet, great location”
We had a fantastic stay at Hill Fresco (Sea Orchid) Hotel, luckily we knew the location from a previous trip to the area because no taxis knew what we were talking about. Had dinner at the restaurant one evening, it was very understaffed, but the one server they did have worked really hard to please us. We arrived at the hotel at 8am, check in was 1 pm but the staff was happy to let us change and lounge by the pool for the day. The internet was terrible, and being there for 5 days it would have been nice. The room was clean, we had a big, comfortable bed (comfy beds are hard to come by in Thailand), the room was cleaned well every day. The beach (Jomtiem) was directly down the street which was super convenient for us, and a market was straight down another street. Very far from Walking Street and Beach road, we walked there one night and took a taxi for the rest. Had a very hard time trying to rent a motorbike for a day. We had to pay 50$ Canadian (1500 baht) a plate for the New Years Eve Gala dinner which we were not impressed with, and did not include liquor, we were given 1 drink ticket each and it was good for 1 water or 1 coke, so we felt it was overpriced for what we got. Overall, we really enjoyed the hotel. It was overpriced but that may be because of the New Year holiday.
The perfect place for holiday”
I was there on my business trip at the place near Pattaya. Taken hour to search for a good hotel with reasonable price due to limit cost. Fortunately, after rejected several hotels, I found the ideal hotel where met expectation for price and facilities respectively. The first impression is quite location and really beautiful swimming pool, the second one is the room, it was really amazing with the room view, my deluxe room included king bed, relax lounger at window with a nice view of swimming pool, balcony with table and chairs for relaxation in early morning or at night with a can of beer. Staffs there in my opinion is good. I had talken to the housekeeper for a while and they always smile on me. Completely great. Eventually, the price for me is beyond expectation with what I can get throughout 5 nights staying there. I even did not want to go out because of facilities which offer by hotel. Advantage: - Good offered facilities - Big swimming pool - Nice room - Friendly staff
Located on Phra Tamnak hill between Jomtien Beach and Walking street area - because I had a motorbike, everything was easily accessable - even traveling to Ban Am Pur for local seafood was easy. Would recommend Hill Fresco to friends
Great value for money”
My boyfriend and I stayed here for a few days in June 2011. We thought the hotel was lovely and we got the room for a great price. The beach is only a 5 minute walk away, and convenience stores are just across the street. You can walk to the famous walking street in around 30 minutes (although some of it is uphill), but there are Baht buses or taxis available if you dont fancy the walk. The receptionists were really friendly and helpful, they helped us book an excursion which worked out much cheaper than it would have been elsewhere. The swimming pool is nice and clean, too. Our only complaint would be the food in the restaurant. Unfortunately, we found that breakfast wasn't of great quality or quantity. As our flight got in late, we were both hungry on our first night so decided just to eat in the hotel restaurant which we were not impressed with, either. Food seemed of a low standard and wasnt too nice. Still, that is our only complaint, in an otherwise lovely and comfortable hotel. Would definitely stay there again.
Affordable and pet-friendly stay with decent facilities ”
The hotel is among the best in Pattaya if you are planning to bring along your dogs. However, only the “Cabana” rooms (on the first floor) are allowed for dogs so make sure you reserve for the specific room type. The hotel has just gone under refurbishment so the facilities are relatively new. The swimming pool is great. Location isn’t bad but there are not many restaurants around. I recommend that you drive if you plan to stay here. My only problem was the breakfast. 200 baht is still too expensive considering what were served.
Very nice hotel”
Sea Orchid is a very nice hotel. They have a good and friendly staff who always work to give their guests a pleasant stay. Their rooms are very beautiful with different color themes. Cleaning lady is very professional. Their restuarant is good for a nice price. They have much to choose from at their breakfast buffet. Very nice pool area located in the sun with a small playground.
This has been my favorite place to stay when I visit Pattaya. Located in the quiet side of Pattaya where you can feel relax. The place is well maintained, plus a very friendly staff. The rooms are tastefully decorated, and are generous in size.
Well this hotel is absolutely the best hotel we've stayed in all of our Thailand Holiday.. Good location.. we can see the sea from our window Very comfort bed.. ^^ i mean it.. very very comfort ^^ well after a very long journey in Pattaya you will really really need a good bed.. and Sea Orchid have it.. ^^ and a good breakfast too ^^ i love the muffin ^^ the bad thing about this hotel.. well i thing they need to get a renovation to their bathroom clean but crack is everywhere.. and we got bad experience too when they almost charge us for chocolate in minibar.. but the problem is we didn't see any chocolate in minibar from our 1st sight.. so they forgot to put chocolate in minibar.. and if you come in night it will be quite hard to find this hotel because their lamp is broken.. it should be seen as SEA ORCHID but the working lamp is only CHID
Loved the hotel, we will stay there again when we go back to Pattaya. The rooms are big enough, and are lovely decorated (we stayed in a superior sea view). We did need to replace the batteries in the room safe ourself, as the reception staff didn't understand me.
Great hotel for relaxing”
Great place for family, located up-hill of Pattaya area.Nice breakfast.
Sea Orchid Hotel”
I was here with my boyffriend, we had a great time at the Sea Orchid Hotel! There was other families at the hotel. It was very close to Pattaya Park wich was much fun! The Hotel had a great pool, good food! Both international and fantastic Thaifood! And a workout-room with a good standard! If you are here with family or spouce, you don't need to leave the Hotel at all! The staff at this Hotel was remarkable! They were so nice to us! I will recomend this Hotel!
Nice Place to Stay”
Really nice place - close to beach and all amenities on Phratamnak Hill, friendly staff
Nice relaxing clean”
Nice hotel, clean, modern staff amazing. Pet friendly great location!
Small hotel with pool and fitness room”
The hotel is a few hundred meters from Dongtarn Beach, which, unlike other beaches around Pattaya, is relatively quiet. The hotel rooms all overlook the pool so it doesn't feel cramped. The hotel is clean, service is okay, breakfast is adequate. However, if you don't have a car you'll have to walk uphill to the main road and from there take a ride to get to the Pattaya Beach road.
everything is good”
overall it is a nice hotel to stay while in Pattaya, there is an extra bed in the room, it is good for the family with children, it only take 5 mins to beach, and the beach is not as crowded as the south Pattaya but have all the water activities, however, i feel like the location of the hotel is a bit far from the downtown, the hotel is not that well-known to the taxt drivers
nice and decent hotel”
we stayed at the hotel for 3 days and the stay was very comfortable.the best part of the hotel is its location.it is away from the crowds and the nightlife of Pattaya;but still very much near to the city center.the hotel and a nice swimming pool and sun decks.the breakfast was good enough but the food at the restaurant is not up to the mark.there are couple of small stalls outside the hotel which caters to everybody's tastes.overall stay at sea orchid was pleasant and i would recommend this hotel to families and couples who want to stay away from the nightlife od Pattaya!
wow. great hotel for the price”
We had a hire car but you can get to the hotel by taxi pretty cheap. Thats the only drawback of this hotel the distance to the centre of pattaya but I liked the fact that it was away from the noise and the bars.
Fun time at Sea Orchid”
We had a great time in this smaller hotel, nice and quiet, with friendly staff, who were as helpfull as they could be with their imperfect English language skills. We booked our sightseeing trips and the taxi back to Bangkok Airport with them and it was fine. We also used their laundryservice, which was excellent, and also our roomservice was nice. The other really nice feature they offered was a free taxiservice to downtown , one in the morning, one in the evening. The evenings at the hotel were quiet, nothing going on, but we liked that.
