Do you do any maintenance work?

Of course, like all hotels (and any other business!) routine maintenance needs to be carried out as and when, if the standard of the Rooms & Suites are to be maintained or even improved.
We do however (unlike so many others) only schedule maintenance that might disturb our valued Guests, to be carried out between 2pm and 5pm in the afternoon when hopefully most are enjoying the beaches, shopping and all the other attractions that this Resort City has to offer.
Sometimes, of course the unavoidable happens and we have to react as the situation demands, but generally do not allow "disturbing" maintenance during the night, or indeed in the mornings that would inconvenience.

I prefer a discreet payment option which would not show The Penthouse's name on my statement, do you have such an option?

Yes, our sister site www.PattayaFunland.com (link opens in a new window), is especially introduced for this very purpose. Plus you can also utilise Bank-To-Bank (Wire) Transfer and Western Union payment options, details of which can be obtained by simply contacting us.

What are the check-in and check-out times?

We would be glad to offer complimentary (free) early check-in in case your originally reserved Room / Suite is available at the time of arrival. Although, the usual check-in time is at 14:00 hrs., (2 PM) and check-out at 12:00 hrs., (mid-day). If your reserved Room / Suite is unavailable at the time of arrival, early check-in (depending on availability) in a different Room / Suite could normally be made available at 50% Room / Suite Tariff and you would then be able to relocate to your originally reserved Room / Suite at 14:00 hrs (2PM) or when prepared and available. Of course, when our Transportation Services are utilised, both to and from The Penthouse Hotel, we do tend to be a little more lenient on both early check-in and late check-out if it is at all possible!

Am I and my belongings safe at The Penthouse Hotel?

We do provide Electronic Safety Boxes in every Room & Suite and for still further security, safe, Safe Boxes are available at the Reception / Front Desk. We offer CCTV Security Surveillance 24/7 along with Security Personnel. Guest IDs are both required and vetted for your peace of mind.

Do you ID my Joiners?

Of course, and for your own safety. There can be no exceptions to this.

Are Freelancers safe?

Debatable! But we have covered this matter in more depth in the Nite Watch part of Joiners / Freelancers section.

Several forums and blogs about Pattaya are reporting Water Scarcity, what’s your ‘Plan B’ ?

The Penthouse Hotel has installed some 20,000 imperial gallons of water both underground and in roof-top tanks. In the event of City Water not being available we are self-sufficient therefore for some one or two days, during which time we would always seek other sources of private supply. After all, if you play hard! an abundant supply of Room / Suite Water is always appreciated, and even delivered at a pleasurable pressure!
