Pattaya officials make arrests at three hotels operating without licences

Sophon Cable TV reported on Facebook that a contingent of Bang Lamung officials along with protection services and the tourist police raided four hotels in the Pattaya area. 

 

Three establishments were found to be offering daily rental without licences. 

 

Sophon said that the state wanted to be able to check guests and the possibility that illegal migrants or foreign criminals were using the hotels. This they could not do if they were not legally registered as hotels. 

 

None of the places was named.

But arrests were made and prison terms of one year and fines of 20,000 baht can be given along with fines of 10,000 baht per day against the owners while the establishments remain unregistered. 

 

Thai posters on the Sophon site questioned how the places could open in the first instance with the inference that back-handers were paid to facilitate this.

Surprise, Surprise, someone finally checking licenses.

If licenses of hotels, bars, massage parlors, eateries, etc. were entered into computer database systems and checked all year long the city might find a whole new source of revenue.

No names please.

Just that you can easily read one of the names on the photo :whistling:

A fairly new built/renovated place on Jomtien beach.

And of course on all major booking sites.

 

Again and again posters claim that they don't need to show passport at check-in.

And I tell you again and again that this is fishy.

Police: Come to any of the upscale condos on Naklua Soi 16, Wongamat. All have AirBnB ads for short term rentals. Scores of "short-timers" flopping down for a day/ week at a time in my 43 story complex. All the fancy signs here recently displayed have little effect.

The question I have is, are the hotels not registered because of construction/design shortcomings, because it is some business tax dodge, because you have to pay millions of baht in tea money to a government official to get the registration approved. What is the real reason? Surely it is not because the hotel owners are too lazy to register them.

They should also be prosecuted for still having a Christmas tree in their foyer.
