If you are going to take guests, especially Thai bar girls – freelancers or lady-boys back to your hotel room in Pattaya ( or any hotel in Thailand ) you need a hotel with a guest friendly joiner policy. Hotels with a guest friendly joiner policy are also referred to as bar girl friendly – joiner friendly – working girl friendly. They are termed “guest/joiner friendly” because they allow you to take guests from outside the hotel to your room free of charge.
If you are visiting Pattaya for the first time it’s important that you know not all hotels in Pattaya are ok with you taking guests back to your room, and choosing the wrong hotel could mean you pay as much as 1,500 baht every time you take a guest to your room. Whether she’s a bar girl – a girl you just met at a shopping mall – or a girl you hooked up with online, there are no exceptions.
What is a guest friendly hotel joiner policy? A hotel joiner policy dictates whether or not you can take an outside guest (aka joiner), to stay in your room, and any conditions which apply.
About Pattaya Hotel Joiner Policies and Fees
Every hotel in Pattaya has a joiner policy which determines the conditions under which the registered guest can take a joiner back to their room. Included in those conditions is the joiner fee, if they decide to charge one. Other conditions include the maximum number of joiners allowed, and minimum age of the joiner.
Reporting to the front desk: The hotel will require your guest to report to the front desk with their ID card or passport so they can be logged or registered as a temporary guest.
How Many Guests can I Have in my Room?
Most guest friendly hotels in Pattaya will allow 1 guest/joiner free of charge, some will allow 2 free of charge but most will apply a fee for the second.
How Much is the Hotel Joiner Fee in Pattaya?
If a hotel charges for joiners the fee is usually related to the room rate of the hotel. Budget to mid priced hotels and guest houses may charge as little as 300 baht per joiner per night, while 4 and 5 star hotels often charge as much as 1,500 baht per night. I would say the average price according to responses I have received from hotels is between 500 and 600 baht.
How To Make Sure Your Hotel is Guest Friendly
- Use an up to date list Pattaya guest friendly hotels as your starting point.
- Choose a hotel from the list.
- Recommended, contact the hotel and ask if they charge a joiner fee for your overnight guests.
- Book the room for 2 occupants and check-in alone, your guest is the second occupant.
Hotels charge per room, not per occupant, so booking a room for 2 occupants is the same as booking for a single occupant. You are also not required to add any information about the 2nd occupant on the booking form.
