Are the hotels in Pattaya open or closed (thought they were closed but booking.com shows availability)

But have you seen a hotel? Each room would have to be metered.

Here's one that provides the same rooms as a serviced apartment as they do for a hotel guest.

Owned and ran by the Rattanakorn Group so not a fly by night company.

Hotels were ordered to close on the 25th or 27th of March, unless they applied at the banglamung office to remain open with an submsision of their Ror ror 4 list of guests inhouse. From that date only hotels that had long term guests will have opted to remain open as they still had cashflow coming in. For other hotels with short stay guests at that time it did not make sense to remain open. From that time also SSO kicked in with the force majeure act, covering 62% of the salaries up to 9300 TBH. From that time until the end of April, no new guests were allowed to be registered or to to check in. From May onwards, when the lock down ended hotels are allowed to accept new bookings again and submit them as usual by ror ror 4. However, with no more reservations on the books few hotels can reopen on break even, so it is cheaper to remain closed. Hotels will look at this month by month and are still selling online as the need bookings on hand before deciding to reopen again. If not reopen, they will either transfer the booking or release it.

Did you hear this on the radio station?

I booked a room (cancelable) at the LK Metropole through Agoda a few weeks ago so i thought i'd call the hotel and check if they are in fact open. A lady answered my call and when asked if the hotel was open she replied "NO", i then said well i've booked a room through Agoda and she replied "if you book a room through a booking agency then YES we are open"

 

The mind boggles lol

I checked the hotel LK metropole Soi Diana this afternoon and it's closed

all the doors are padlocked with chains and there is nobody inside.

Plus signs everywhere with closed writed on the papers and even a copy of

the province closure order.

I've stayed at the Natural Beach hotel on the beach just past Central. From memory was quite nice. Very cheap on booking.com at the moment. If you search on booking.com and look at the hotel reviews and filter them to most recent if it is open and someone has stayed recently and reviewed it will tell you. They had a review from 25th May so is obviously open.

Natural beach hotel is nice (Be aware there are 3 parts of the hotel and they are not all at the

same standarts, then it's a little bit of a lotery for the rooms) with a very good location

but last week it was still closed. I will check today and i will let know here if it's open or not.

Have you seen a condo? Some have a room full of individual meters for each of the units. Although unlikely, a hotel that may have been wired that way as well.

I was going to post earlier saying it is nice of you helping out people 😊. They did have a review saying stayed May 2020 but good of you to help out. I have posted before Aiyaree beside the Matcha Noo fountain in Jomtien is definitely open and very good value.

Have nothing to do with booking.com for starters. Try Agoda or other apps that allow you to email or call to check. BC won't allow you until paid, then it's to late and they are woeful at doing anything, if you have issues. Oyo has an app and seem open but more expensive than through Agoda. Just check if charges include power and water as most hide this. Stay away from Canterbury Tales. I left early as my original hotel closed. Pays to do research so you don't end up with a disaster of a stay as I did

Good advice. Agoda has decent customer service. I have gotten refunds from them, well after the cancellation period went into effect.

Yes, Ive driven around Pattaya recently.... Nature Beach (Soi 11 beach road) , Intown Holiday (Soi Honey) and Aiyaree seem to be open and from the frontage appear to be hotels, not bad 3 or so hotels open out of the many 1000's of hotels we have here in Pattaya. Probably something to do with the forced closure. 

BTW, R,Con is a serviced apartment. I found this information below on their website.

R-Con is Service Apartment. Currently Ratanakorn Asset is managing over 7 service apartments. There is five more service apartments are developing under Ratanakorn Asset branding. In the end of year 2007, Ratanakorn Asset plans to manage altogether over 12 service apartments with more than 1,000 units

It is both, as mentioned already.  If you'd looked a bit further you would have found:

You have a very poor attitude mate, just looking to antagonise. 

I made mention of both R-Con and Intown, both of which you made no reference to. 

Remember you're not the only person who reads my comments.
