    Very good”

    Right on beach with a very friendly staff and english speaking owner. A bit removed from the night life but not far from night market and baht bus runs on beach road right outside. Restaurant serves tasty western food if you came to Thailand looking for that for some reason. My one complaint is no way to make coffee in your room No kettle no microwave. I am a very early riser and not having coffee is not an option. Had to go down 4 flights of stairs and ask the lady on duty to microwave a cup of water to carry back up 4 flights of stairs to my room where I kept some instant coffee I had bought earlier and repeat if I wanted more than one cup.

    Right next to the sea.”

    The women in the restaurant were so welcoming and pleasant. The owner, Eddie, is friendly and helpful. He’ll even take you to the 389 bus station. I had a 600 baht room, but for 800 you can get a balcony room facing the sea across the street. Food is expensive, but it’s costly at all expat places. I would stay here again.

    PROS AND CONS”

    STAFF, DINING, GUESTS

    PROS - THE STAFF OF THE RICHMAN POORMAN GUESTHOUSE ARE A FAMILY. THEY ARE CHEERFUL AND HELPFUL. THE OTHER GUESTS TEND TO MIGRATE TO THE RESTAURANT/ENTRANCE AREA AS IT'S A COZY AND COMFORTABLE ATMOSPHERE TO DINE AND HAVE A DRINK. THE GUESTS VARIED FROM SOLO TRAVELLERS, TO FRIENDS, TO FAMILIES. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS, CONCERNS, OR REQUESTS, THE STAFF ARE QUICK TO ATTEND. ALL IN ALL, A VERY PLEASANT GUESTHOUSE AND I WILL SURELY RETURN SOON. CONS - I DIDN'T ORDER THE PORK CHOPS (THEY LOOKED ABSOLUTELY MOUTH-WATERING DELICIOUS). THE VIEW FROM MY ROOM HAD SOME OBSTRUCTIONS.

    Comfortable bed, nice balcony/beach view”

    Balcony view of the beach, bed and bedding, clean room

    The bed was comfortable (unlike many in Thailand), and the linens were first rate. The pillow was big. The room was very comfortable. Cable had a lot of channels, but the bar downstairs had more. No plethora of sports channels though the restaurant/bar is sports themed. No CNBC. The food is good, but the portions are very small and the prices are relatively high for Thailand. The establishment attracts expats from Jomtien and Pattaya, and there is a warm, relaxed feeling in the restaurant. The only real drawback is the noise along the beach. There is perpendicular parking available free across the street, and many Thai come at sunset--around 6 pm--and really crank the stereos/boom boxes out front shaking the hotel. They scroll through their smartphones and talk until late morning. My first three nights it was impossible to sleep, but if you're in town for the nightlife and sleep during the day, you're okay. The air con in the room was very weak, and it was hot. There was a fan in the room, too. I spoke with the owner about this. It is a problem throughout Thailand. It would be difficult, but if one found a hotel without the perpendicular parking (like the Now hotel just down the road), noise might be less of an issue. It truly is a problem. Otherwise, the room was very, very comfortable and clean.

Jomtien is a beautiful beach and it is directly across the street from the guesthouse. It is very easy and convenient to get to Pattaya on a "baht bus". For your stay in Jomtien or Pattaya, Richman Poorman Guesthouse is your best bet.

Nice american food, rich portions. Have no Thai-food, but 15m from entrance is a thairestaurant located, and it is OK to bring food from there to eat at Richman Poorman Restaurant if needed from your other part´s at the table. Location god in Jomtien, not 100% if you need 100% party, but instead U can sleep nice in perfect bed. If need party 1km to walk along nice beachroad or take the car 10Bath.

    Stay away from this place”

    Had a complaint about what I think was charging twice for a bottle of water. However, the complain was shouted down noisily by the American owner of the guesthouse in front of his staff and other customers. Though the booking was for 2 people (I am a single traveler), only for the first 3 nights second breakfast vouchers were grudgingly provided. Strict instructions that the the 2nd voucher cannot be used by a visitor who might stay over night. No 2nd breakfast vouchers (good for an extra coffee) were provided for the 2nd 3 three nights. After being verbally assaulted by the owner I decided to leave the guesthouse after all together 5 nights.

    Best American restaurant in Pattaya”

    They have probably the best American food ive seen in Pattaya. By that I mean BBQ ribs, chowders, steak plates, etc. They are very good at that. The room was acceptable. We stayed here for 9 days and so I can say that if the room is close to the road it is pretty noisy at night with the motorcycle traffic. And the shower had this stupid thing where it's completely enclosed except for one small hole in the tiling that floods the entire bathroom whenever you take a shower...kind of defeated the purpose. So overall the room was fine but the included breakfast and the overall restaurant menu was the highest quality part.
