Choosing the right hotel is an important part of making your holiday in Pattaya enjoyable. It’s not just about finding a hotel in a good location or in the right price range, those are important, but you also need to make sure your Pattaya hotel is ladyboy friendly.
While a large majority of the hotels are accepting of ladyboys, some of them will charge a joiner fee to allow them in. Not choosing a ladyboy friendly hotel in Pattaya could mean spending your nights alone or ending up with a big unexpected bill at the end of your stay.
Being a ladyboy friendly hotel simply means that the hotel allows ladyboys to stay as an unregistered guest at the hotel and does not charge an additional fee, known as a joiner fee. While some hotels will allow ladyboys in as guest they may charge a joiner fee of 500 – 1500 THB, sometimes more, per guest, per night. The hotels on this don’t charge a joiner fee.
While all the hotels on this list are ladyboy friendly and have no joiner fee at time of writing, please note that hotels can change their policies at any time. While this is unlikely to happen, if you have any concerns you should email the hotel directly and inquire about their current policies.
If you find any of these Pattaya hotels are no longer ladyboy friendly, please let us know and we’ll update the list accordingly.
