Keerati Homestay Pattaya Review

33/40, Soi. LK Metro
Pattaya is one of the best places in Thailand to find clean budget hotels near the beach. And certainly one of the best city to find a guest friendly hotel near a lot of go go bars.

The Keerati Homestay is a prime example. It's a nice little clean homely property surrounded by go go bars. The quality of the hotel is cool and you even get a Mediterranean feel with the ocher paint schemes and decor.

It's certainly one of the finest budget hotels right on the corner of Soi Diana and Soi LK Metro. Which means that the Keerati Homestay is in drunken stumbling distance to 7 bars. Champagne a go go, Sugar Sugar and the Office are just a few names right by the hotel.

There is a drawback. Since the hotel is so close to nightlife activity you will hear loud thumping music throughout the night, or at least until 2am. Which afterwards you'll probably hear the loud thumping beats of pissed drunk bar patrons dragging themselves back to their hotels.

So if you're the sort that turns in early at night you should ask for the room at the back of the building.

Standard double room
I've stayed in one of the corner rooms at the front of the building once and yes, the music from outside can be heard because the terrace doors are not made of very strong solid wood. But I'm always prepared with a set of ear plugs everywhere I go.

There are 29 rooms at the Keerati so you're chances of getting a room in the back of the hotel is good.

I stayed at a standard room on the fourth floor (no elevators) which was about 25 square meters in size. There's air conditioning, a television, fridge with free water and most importantly free Wi-Fi access.

I particularly like the shower because the floor is made up tiny pebbles that are great for removing dead skin. Which is useful for a guy who like to walk around in sandals. Yes, I am easy to please.

There is no room safe and you are required to leave the keys with reception when you leave the hotel. So make sure you have a lock for your bags just in case.

Here is an email from the Keerati confirming that they don't charge joiner fee's when you invite a companion back to a room:
Hello sir,

Thank you for interested staying at my place, Room can stay 2 persons, you invite lady don't charge but if stay more one 300 baht.


Thank you

Sowatchai
There are also deluxe rooms available which are bigger and have kitchens. Which is great if you're staying in Pattaya for at least a few weeks. And it's not expensive either with deluxe rooms going for around 1300THB a night.

Otherwise, a standard room at the Keerati like the one I stayed in would suffice and it only cost about 1000THB.

True that there are a lot of budget hotels in Pattaya that can be cheaper.

But the quality of Keerati Homestay is worth it. Even though there's no pool or gym on the property itself you can walk over to a hotel that they are affiliated with called LK Metro ( a hotel I recommend and guest friendly too).

    1. Hello Mariko,

      Keerati is an excellent budget hotel choice. Just remember to ask for a room in the back of the hotel as the rooms in the front are next to Champagnes go go bar and a few other.

      Have no information about Metro, Bella Villa, Kilkenny though.

      Have a great time!
      Jim

  3. Hi Andrew,

    There's a sign on the front reception desk of Keerati.

    Keerati is a part of LK Metro. The LK is more expensive while the Keerati is their budget end for hotel rooms.

    Cheers,
    Jim
