My stay from June 13-June19, 2019”
I have always enjoyed my holiday vacation stay every year with The LK Group, especially at The LK The Empress on Beach Road. The hotel is awesomely located to everything you will need from Walking Street to The Central Festival Hilton. You will closed to restaurants, bars and shops. The price value is fair. The facility is okay as well and could really used some maintenance and upgrading repair. The buffet breakfast is good so don’t miss it! But the most important why I have returned every year to this hotel in particular is because of the Staff. Mr. Kritayos “Teddy” Setteemud, Duty Manager, is awesome. He is always very professional, helpful and friendly. All the girls on the desk (check in and check out) are fantastic. Nice and helpful. Pleasant to speak with. Always smiling ;) . Tao and the other bell boys are equally impressive. If I didn’t mentioned your name is because I forgot how to pronounce your name and I apologize. Well, I will return to Pattaya and will stay here at The LK The Empress again. I highly recommend this hotel. Give it a try and experience it for yourself. Thank you.
LK and quality are synonymous”
This is my second time staying at an LK hotel. My first experience was at the LK Metro and it was an amazing time and i had absolutely no issues. It felt like a home more than a hotel. I was unable to secure rooms at the LK Metro for my last trip i took these past two weeks so sticking with what i knew i booked my stay at the LK Empress. I couldnt have made a better decision. I showed up a day early due to a miscalculation on my part so i had to stay at the pattaya center hotel and i was assailed by giant cockroaches in the elevator. The next day i finally got my room and it was like night and day compared to my previous nights accommodations. This place is CLEAN folks, down to the corners was clean. The employees are extremely courteous and helpful and always professional. The room was impeccable. Bathroom was spotless and had a pleasant smell and didnt reek of cleaning supplies. The bed was made quite sharply. Would have passed my inspection when i was in the military, tucked corners, etc. The breakfast is good, the dining room is beautiful, i felt like royalty, maybe because im peasant but it is very luxurious in my opinion. Its location on beach road is right in the middle of the best shopping and nightlife pattaya has to offer. It is also vistor friendly to those that make a lot of new friends while youre on vacation. I know i always leave thailand with at least one new friend made. The thai people are just good all around if youre good to them. All in all you cant go wrong staying at an LK hotel in my experience.
LK The Empress, Beach Road, Pattaya, is a nice relaxing place to stay.”
I am a business solo traveler. This is my third time staying at LK The Empress, Pattaya.. I decide to stay because the hotel staff are professional, helpful and friendly. Other reasons I like this property is its location. The hotel is situated on Beach Road, where it is just minutes away the famous Walking Street, Mike’s Plaza, Hilton Central Festival and surrounded by shops, restaurants and massage parlors. The hotel is located in probably the best part of Pattaya . I do feel safe staying here. The price is not cheap; but, it is reasonable for those who can afford it. The breakfast buffet (at additional cost) is pretty good. The only two negative things (or disadvantages) that myself and others have witnessed are with the hotel’s aging infrastructures. The WiFi Internet Connection is really slow/weak. The Internet connections are always inconsistent. It is not reliable. The other weakness is the hotel’s plumbing. Getting hot water for a shower is a challenge.
Great location beautiful room”
We are regular visitors to Pattaya and having had an enjoyable stay at a sister hotel and having noted the location of the LK The Empress we thought we would try it for our next visit. We had read mixed reviews so were a tad apprehensive but we booked anyway and were not disappointed. On arrival we parked in the hotels underground car park, a bellboy came to our car and collected our luggage, check in was efficient and friendly. Shown to our room which was exactly as described, very big with a nice bathroom with good quality fittings with the room itself being very nicely furnished. There was even a microwave in the room and with a convienience store on the ground floor we thought that was useful. The room didn't have a particularly nice view, well you could just see the sea out of one window if you stood on tiptoe. We used the pool which was a reasonable size though there were not too many sun loungers, this could be a problem, it wasn't for us. Breakfast is served in an open area overlooking the beach, it's a reasonable price, 150 Baht, so there were a lot of ad hoc customers making the place very busy. The was a good range of breakfast items in the buffet and, despite the fact it was very busy, the staff managed to keep pace with the replacement of breakfast items. The hotel is in an ideal location for Walking Street as well as all the local restaurants and bars, despite it's location we didn't find it to be noisy, and would certainly stay there again
Fantastic location and service”
We really enjoyed our 3 night stay here, we'd been staying in another hotel not far away for the past 6 nights and couldn't extend our stay as their price shot up. For the same price we originally paid for the other hotel we booked the LK Empress and we soon realised what extremely much better value for money it was, both 4 star hotels. This hotel is fabulous, the staff were so courteous, helpful, efficient and friendly. The breakfast's were included for the same price and were excellent with so much choice and the location of the resturant was very pleasant fronting the main beach road watching the beach and the seaview. Our room was brilliant, lovely and clean, spacious and very up to date efficient fittings, great shower and bath. modern TV and DVD player with good english channels and good wi-fi and all the other amenities as advertised were all there and good. There's a pleasant relaxing pool area too. The location of this hotel in Pattaya couldn't be better if you want all the action, shopping, beach and fun of the place, all you have to do is stumble out of the hotel and you're in the middle of it in all directions. The famous walking street is just a short walk away and the beach is just across the road, it's all so easy here. Go for this one it's really good value for money.
LK The Empress Hotel located on Beach Road, Pattaya, Thailand, is good friendly place to stay.”
This is my fourth time staying here at The LK The Empress on Beach Road Pattaya. The positive sides are the staff, location, and the property. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and professional. From the regional manager (Mr. Teddy), Receptionist (Ms. Ae),, Bell Captain (Mr. Kwan), to the Maids ... These employees are the real backbone to LK The Empress Hotel success! They know how to deliver “world class” customer service. Secondly, the location of the hotel is perfect in my view. It is just minutes away from The Walking Street, the Central Festival and to restaurants, bars and the beach. Thirdly, the property itself is clean and with spacious rooms. As for the negatives, I came up with two. Firstly, I think that the WiFi internet connection is a weak. TV signal is also weak. The technology infrastructure needs to be updated/upgraded if they want to retain new and repeat clients. Secondly, the value for one’s money is fair. The breakfast you pay for is okay.
Most conveniently located ”
There are several LK hotels through out the area. But this one, LK the Empress, is the most well-positioned hotel with a very reasonable price. One of the few most-favorite of mine, I would always check this one out before anything else. The most obvious feature about this hotel is its location and convenience. Right on the main thoroughfare, Beach Road, with an ocean view, it's a stone's throw away from the famous Walking Street. There are also many, many other bars and restaurants nearby. Throw in a big shopping mall nearby, you have everything you need within walking distance. The hotel has gone thru some obvious improvements as evident in how the buildings are joined together. But this doesn't subtract from the overall enjoyment of the property. Rooms are very luxurious and spacious. I almost wondered if I didn't get an upgrade the couple of times I stayed here. The pool area is nice. There is a partial view of the ocean from the rooftop pool area. Could've been better if it was a full view. This is where the past improvements become obvious. Seem like this is the only way they could accommodate the pool with the original building in the front, blocking part of the view to the ocean. The food area is one of the highlights of the place. Prominently positioned out in the front, it offers an ocean view while you dine. With occasional breeze, it's an especially relaxing event to watch people go by on the promenade during your meal. Even though I don't normally attend hotel breakfasts bcoz I can't wake up early enough before breakfast ends (11am), when I stay here, I would make it a point to come to the breakfast so that I can enjoy all things mentioned above over an excellent buffet breakfast. I would definitely return back to this hotel; given a reasonable rate. And would recommend my friends to stay at this property when they go to Pattaya.
Great choice in Pattaya's Beach Road”
great choice in pattaya's beach road; friendly staff, good quality rooms, excellent location etc. i stayed few nights and all was excellent. lk the empress is located in pattaya's beach road close to all activies and shopping places but still peaceful location. highly recommended for all travelles searching for excellent quality accommodation. yes you can find some cheaper hotels in pattya but not with same quality as with lk the empress. try once and you will be there always. at least i will use this hotel also for my next visit to pattaya.
Best location and Super service”
This was my 2nd visit to LK The Empress. The 2nd time around it was a wonderful experience. The staff and then room was fabulous. I had a room with an excellent view of the Pattaya beach. The Lk staff were very helpful. they got my room cleaned on demand and if there was any issue, they were there immediately, at times within 60 seconds. If I ever visit Pattaya again I would stay no where else but Lk The Empress. My advise if you visit, make sure to use Agoda and select the better room and not the regular room, its just a few dollars more and still way cheaper then other hotels and you get the classic LK service.
Great place to stay, we really can’t fault anything. What a fantastic location, right on Beach road ”
From the time we arrived to the time we departed we felt really spoilt and grateful we finally found such great place to stay. On Beach Road Pattaya. We have previously stayed at a few hotels on Beach road and were mostly disappointed in some way, however we will always book this hotel in future. The outdoor indoor restaurant is a great place to sit, relax and watch the world go by. The restaurant food is of very good quality and range and the breakfast is excellent and a very big variety and the coffee was beautiful. It was really relaxing lying around the pool in the afternoon sipping on a cold drink or just walking across the road for a swim in the ocean. Highly recommend LK The Empress
Ideal place to stay”
LK The Empress is the ideal place to stay if you are looking for a little affordable luxury. The positives abound : the well equipped spacious rooms,the excellent breakfast buffet, the relaxed friendly service, the well maintained swimming pool and gym and the excellent dining menu. All this combined with an excellent location right on the beachfront within walking distance of virtually everything, make this hotel my first choice for future stays in Pattaya. I have stayed in the city many times for varying lengths of time and there are certainly cheaper options and many good options but for sheer value for money (with Agoda's discounts)it is difficult to beat The Empress.
New Favourite in Pattaya”
This is my new favourite hotel in Pattaya; and we've stayed in quite a few! The LK Group's hotels and restaurant have a great, distinctive design. More importantly, this hotel is really comfortable, modern, clean and convenient with all the facilities; and everything works! We loved it. If the Agoda price is right - as it was this time - we will be back at LK Empress next time, for sure. We stayed in one of the larger, more expensive rooms, and I think that the overall experience was at least equal to - if not better than - the two nearby 5 Star options; and tLK Empress is quite a bit cheaper!
Excellent hotel with friendly staff!”
this new hotel is great. one of the best we've stayed in, while in thailand (8 trips). the best by far in pattaya (3.rd trip). the location is perfect for pattaya. 10 meters from the beach, a short walk to both central festival and walking street. the rooms are spacious, clean and nice. plenty of warm water in shower. air-con works great. lack of lighting in bathroom by the mirror is the only minus. house keeping is just excellent. hotel staff is friendly and helpful in every way. language skills varies from ok to great. checking in/out was flawless. the restaurant has great food. breakfast is good, but sadly no bacon available. all in all an excellent hotel! we were very satisfied with our stay at lk empress! we'll be back !
Excellent Hotel in Pattaya”
This was probably the best hotel I have stayed at in Thailand in terms of scale and luxury. The room was great, the rooftop pool was really relaxing and nice. The room I had was very quiet and had a shower, bathtub and balcony. The LK Empress is located right on Beach Road and you can take a baht bus for 10 baht (30 cents USD) directly to walking street or to the ferries to see the islands off of Pattaya. The breakfast buffet was the best I had in Thailand so be sure to get the room with the breakfast included. The give you vouchers for two people for every day on arrival even if you are checking in alone so if you make a friend you can bring them with you. There is also a family mart and other stores attached to the hotel for getting odds and ends.
For me the best in Pattaya”
After trying several hotels in Pattaya I return to the LK Empress every time. The location is near perfect being right on the beach with a short walk to all the main attractions. I find the beds comfortable and the facilities in the room excellent. Also,the rooms are surprisingly quiet. I find the staff to be friendly and helpful with nothing being too much trouble to make my stay enjoyable. They also keep the hotel spotlessly clean. For me the LK Empress is near perfect. One minor thing: I do wish they would offer bacon at breakfast time.
Excellent hotel in great location”
Booked this hotel at the last minute in a retreat to get out of Patong & back to the joys of Pattaya.In Pattaya you really are spoilt for choice with any number of hotels priced at the £35 to £55 a night mark in high season.They are all much of a muchness.But when I stepped into the LK Empress,it has more of a Vegas type decor & feel to it.Marble (or lookalike marble) everywhere,slick check-in with a welcome drink,up to the room,oh yes this is more like it.Quality bathroom,big,not hard bed,microwave,cutlery,coffee maker,loads of hangers! (other hotels take note),a 24hr family mart built in to the hotel,so you can take extra food or drinks to your room.Good breakfast buffet which you can eat on the terrace outside by Beach Rd,outdoor pool,sauna,small fitness gym.Super efficient staff and room cleaning.Walking street not to far away,and a good afternoon gogo joint next door.Checked out & they booked me a taxi to the airport for 1,000 baht,very good for a hotel.What more could you want.I shall return.
Best hotel in pattay”
I have been pattaya many times but never stay before LK the empress hotel. This is great hotel for single traveller. Right front of the pattaya beach,close to shopping mall, walking street, money exchange. From now on I will always stay in this hotel. PS. please note concierge/front desk customer service is not good at all. They should fired all of them and recruit fresh staff. I never talk to them, so it does not bother me. house keeping people are very good, worth to give them some tips.
Great Value for Money”
I have stayed at LK The Empress on several occasions now and consider it to be fantastic value for money. I had a pleasant room overlooking the pool and the Bay of Thailand. Room was a good size with a charming French Colonial décor. Good size bedroom, bed, shower and bathroom. A microwave oven is also provided. Location is excellent for entertainment, food, and shopping. Breakfast provided a large variety of food types to suit most tastes. Front staff and housekeeping were of a good standard. Consumables were replenished daily. Apart from some minor mould stains in shower grout room presented very clean. Wi-Fi was a bit erratic on this visit - dropping out often. I will definitely stay at LK The Empress again when in Pattaya. Try it- I think you will not be disappointed.
excellent as always”
we always stay at the LK Empress when visiting Pattaya. at around €50 per room per night it's excellent value. a nice swimming pool a lobby to match many 5 star hotels nice rooms comfortable beds A liberal door policy allowing a no fuss attitude to those wanting to enjoy the fringe benefits pattaya has to offer my only complaint against being the lack of consistency with the hot water in the showers. cold, burning heat, cold, hot.........no middle ground breakfast is excellent with lots of choice and also served until 11am. would thoroughly recommend and we will stay again on our next visit to Pattaya
Still one of the best 4 star hotels in Pattaya”
Have now stayed at LK The Empress about 6 times and it never fails to please. The rooms are large, kept spot-less clean, and are relatively quiet. For the first time, on this trip we ate dinner at the hotel. We repeated this 7 times and found the food and service to be very good - both European or Thai menu, and the prices were competitive with mid-range restaurants outside. The only minor complaint at the hotel was the hot water temperature in the shower was inconsistent - sometimes too hot, or too cold. I had this problem before. But to be fair, when I mentioned it the reception staff offered to move me to another room straightaway. Will be booking this hotel on my next trip to Pattaya.
