18 Coins Hotel, Pattaya

Open since 2002, the 18 Coins Hotel has built up a very solid reputation for good service and value for money, both for its rooms and for its restaurant service. The 18 Coins Hotel provides only the basics, but does it very well and always with a smile on their faces – which is unusual for Pattaya where the service is sometimes rude. No rudeness at the 18 Coins Hotels, just a good night’s sleep and a great plate of food served in the restaurant.


Price: from 449 Thai Baht

18 Coins Hotel Exterior


The 18 Coins Hotel is located just off Soi Buakhaow, which is a lively street running 1.5km between two of the main roads in Central Pattaya: the Central Pattaya Road and the South Pattaya Road. Soi Buakhaow is two blocks back from the beach, about a 500 metre walk, and unlike Walking Street, it tends to appeal more visitors who are familiar with Pattaya already. It is cheaper and more relaxed than Walking Street although the restaurants and bars are just as good.


The 18 Coins Hotel has two room types: Standard and Superior. There are 78 of these in total. Both rooms types feature air-conditioning, en-suite bathooms, free WiFi, cable TV with English language channels and city views. The Superior rooms are bigger than the Standard ones and have bigger beds. Other than that there is no real difference.

This hotel also has two 8 bed dormitories, one mixed and one for females only. If you are looking for a cheap bed for a night then this is a good option: a bed in the dormitory can be booked for as least as 200 THB per night.


The restaurant at the 18 Coins Hotel is popular with a lot of non-hotels guests choosing to eat there. It is not expensive with a plate of French Fries costing 80 THB and a Spaghetti Bolognese costing 180 THB. What makes this restaurant popular is the Western menu of roasts, burgers and steaks. In addition to great service from a team of friendly and attractive Thai women who run the restaurant. The English breakfast is great and too large to finish.
