The Nelson hotel was renamed the Sandman hotel in the middle of January 2017 although new signage went up a little later. It is located down near the Beach Road end of Soi 6, Pattaya. One the right hand side if you were walking up from the Beach end, around 40 metres from the beach.
As far as we are aware the rooms and bar remained pretty much the same.
Although it uses the name “hotel” it would be fair to say it is a Sports bar and Guesthouse although it does offer some of the best accommodation facilities on Soi 6.
Rooms can be booked via Agoda – they do not seem to have a website. Please note – this is a great hotel for guys wishing to stay on or around Soi Six. However, despite the fact it is close to the Beach, in our opinion the area itself is not suitable to families, especially those with young children. That is our opinion only – up to you!
