Nice and clean rooms in a gay-friendly area”
The Venue Residence is a lovely hotel with big clean rooms. Our Superior Room had all the facilities one could ask for, including tea/coffee making equipment and even a DVD player. The bathroom with its tasteful design was a big plus. As others have mentioned before, the cabaret shows in the hotel bar are very noisy. I hadn't expected it to be that loud but it really was. However, it finished by 12a.m. so we still got enough sleep afterwards. Please note that the Venue Residence is situated in the back of an alley that is lined with (gay-friendly) bars and restaurants. It is rather hard to find when you get there for the first time. All in all, for our one-night trip to Pattaya, the Venue Residence was the perfect place to stay at a rather low price.
Perfect for a Gay Couple”
Having stayed in Central Pattaya at Boys Town before, decided to give Jomtien Complex a try and glad I did. Location has a ton of little gay bars and the Venue has a nice night cabaret. Location is a quick walk to Rainbow Beach, Pattaya Tower, etc. Also close to Kaan Show and Coliseum Cabaret (15 minute walk). Easy access to mini taxi to Walking Street. Tons of restaurants, 7-Eleven, and Family Mart. Hotel is super clean, really nice design, balconies. You can hear the show from any of the rooms, but chances are you won't be in the room then anyway. Will definitely stay again.
Hi Brian. Thank you for your great review. We look forward to welcoming you again.
the gay venue jus on the cross of the zhongtian beach on the boy street. down stair is bar & show, the show seems star from 9:00pm-24:00pm, nearby is some boy massage. here is less people than pattaya beach, it's convenient to pattaya beach by tutu car about 15min room is clean & queit, down stair beside the bar is a small pool, u can swimming while take a drink
Cute, clean, and friendly... with your own cabaret!”
The place is in the center of the Jomtien Complex and all it has to offer. It's clean, well appointed, and the rooms and corridors are a nice modern design. Staff is friendly. Price is right. Quick walk to Rainbow Beach or mini taxi to Walking Street. Also within a km of Coliseum or Kaan Show. Their cabaret show changes every couple nights. No cover, and discounted drinks for hotel guests. Yes, you can hear the show going on in any of the rooms, but whatever... you didn't come to Pattaya to sleep between 10pm-Midnight. Really enjoyed our stay here.
Stay at The Venue”
Went there on advise of friends that stayed there about a month before. Was pleasantly surprised. We stayed there about a week, went to Bangkok and came back to Pattaya again. Stayed in The Venue again. Will make this my hotel for future stays again. Personal very friendly and helpful. Language always a problem, but the Thai are so friendly that that is not really a problem.
The competition is gaining”
I'm a long time fan of The Venue and have been going there for years. You can't beat the location if you want to be in the middle of it all at Jomtien complex. However, some newer updated places have opened that are just a few dollars more and I think The Venue needs to up it's game. The Venue still has the best drag slow in Pattaya in my opinion and the staff are always friendly and helpful. I'll go back out of loyalty but they need to keep an eye on the competition.
Surprisingly great value, would stay again!”
This hotel was a great buy, and a pretty quiet place for me to stay in Jomtien Beach that avoided the craziness of S. Pattaya. The hotel is 2 blocks North of Jomtien Complex, off the main E-W road. The attentive staff was awesome, and went the extra mile to provide great service. This is a 2-star hotel that had a 3-star feel, and 4-star service. Note that this is in Boys Town, and the 1st floor of the hotel is a Drag Cabaret with a fun show. The "Gay owned but straight friendly" moniker of the hotel is very true -- a very gay atmosphere that never had me uncomfortable, and it was a professional and well-run smaller hotel. The balcony was nice, comfortable bed, large shower and well-appointed bathroom, good room safe, and the A/C was adequate and cold. TV had HBO and about 30 international TV stations, plus DVD player and each floor had a dedicated hi-speed WiFi access point that worked great. High ceilings, big windows, secure facility with en-suite bath, lift, spiral staircase and 24-hour front desk. No restaurant in the facility, but there is a bar in the caberet. Laundry service was excellent, returned next day and inexpensive. Based on strong gay theme, this is not someplace I'd take small children, because this is right in the midst of a "Boys Town" nightlife scene, but great as a budget-minded traveler. Many local bars and restaurants, as well as very economical therapeutic massage/spa locations that were awesome, I recommend DD Massage. 3 7-11 convenience stores within 2 blocks, 4 blocks (5 minute walk) from the beach.
Excellent place to stay. Only small negative is there's limited sunbathing area where the sun actually is / falls because of buildings around it. If you're happy with the beach etc then everything else gets 10/10. Location is perfect for local nightlife or enjoy the ever changing nightly show at The Venue itself.
Heaven on Earth”
I have stayed at the Venue four tomes and will not stay anywhere else Great staff Grest location So clean Si spacious Great vslue for money Close to beach Wuiet but only short 10฿ taki to Pattsya Great Csbaret show Great loval eateries Etc stc etc Guest security the best in Thsiland
A Good Hotel For The Money”
I have stayed at the Venue many times and have always been happy with it. It's clean, safe and right in the middle of Jomtien Complex. Very convenient to night entertainment as well as the beach with many places to eat.
Would stay there again”
It's the first time that I have stayed at The Venue, and from the day I arrived till the day I departed, all the staff were very nice and more than helpful. I would definitely stay there again as the rooms are well appointed and I was more than comfortable there as a guest.
Clean, comfortable, and convenient”
My third visit--always pleasant, especially when you book an outside-facing room. The Venue is especially a good deal when the 50% discounts are in effect--which is most of the time. There are, however, some caveats: 1) The nightly show is loud throughout, even in the supposedly sound-proofed areas of the hotel. Do not plan on being asleep much before midnight. 2) The air conditioners are old, noisy, and severely challenged. They work--but take quite a while to get up to speed. 3) Water pressure in the shower is low. 4) While they do excellent jobs cleaning the room, maids don't get around to it until well into the afternoon. Either forget about taking an undisturbed nap or forget about having your room cleaned. Moreover, hallways are small and narrow; the girls carry on loud conversations as they work. 5) You will be an anonymous guest. Nobody, including the receptionist hiding in a back office, gives a fig whether you are enjoying yourself. 6) No breakfast (or any other meal) served--but alternatives are available nearby. Highly recommended is Linda's--more or less across the street.
Excellent in every way. Highly recommended.”
Room first class, tasteful decor, five star cleanliness. Staff highly attentive and this is one of the features that make the Venue a unique place to spend your vacation. The nightly shows excel in every way.
Dear David Thank you very much for your kind review and recommendation. Chris.
Cheap room in Jomtien Complex”
Got room on the 4th floor. Room is of decent size with all the amenities like safebox and mini fridge. Bathroom/toilet is big too. It has a pool but it was not well maintained with leaves in the pool. The hotel runs a cabaret show in the evening. Expect to hear the music up to midnight. Other the noise, decent room for the price and walkable to the beach.
Third time staying at the Venue,Rooms are excellent and the location is ideal for restaurantes and Beach.Staff very helpful and friendly.Will be returning next year.
Going Solo at the Venue.”
My stay was GREAT there. I enjoyed the staff, and no problems at all. There were a couple of downsides to the Venue. I would list the pool as being very small, and the entire week I was there, I never saw anyone using it. Also, the pool area seemed to be in the shade all day, so, there is no place to lay out and get some sun if you wanted to. At least none that I found. I don't think there is a restuarant there, but there are many around close by, so, that's not an issue really.
Great Value Hotel”
perfect bed and nice rooms , very clean and a lot of towels ans 4 bottles of water every days ,having show on the hotel lobby every nights , very good price and located in gay area in Jomtien , I should come back again here again on the next trip.
great hotel and great show”
perfect location , daily show downstairs, room spacious, some noise from bars at night but that is to be expected in middle of entertainment area. Close to the Dongtan beach, lots of eating and shopping nearby and walking distance to the airport bus station in Jomtien. I'm glad I stay there
Nice and clean hotel.”
Everything was good about this hotel. Big and nice room, clean and comfortable. The staff was very helpful. Near the beach. Nice show downstairs every evening. No disturbing noice at 3rd floor.
The Venue Pattaya”
Hotel reception staff not very helpful,anything we asked for was replayed with NO.Maybe this could have been a language problem.The Venue hosts a show which is very popular,but not if you're staying above with the noise going on till midnight.We stayed on the fourth floor which wasn't that bad,Going on a 6am trip sleeping when the show was impossible.
