5 Great Condos in Downtown Pattaya


We couldn’t do a review of the condos in the area without mentioning those that are available in the city itself. There are quite literally hundreds of condos and apartments in Pattaya ranging in quality and of course price! Condos downtown tend to generally (and it is a very sweeping statement) be aimed more at single men or couples. Of course there are condos aimed at families but as a rule there are lots of studios and one bedroom units available. Here is selection of just 5 from around the city:

  1. Northshore

Northshore is one the more exclusive condos in downtown Pattaya with a superb location on soi 5 Pattaya Beach Road. This is an older building that was renovated by Raimon Land. The rooms are larger and the facilities are excellent and extremely well maintain. The location is surprisingly quiet when you consider its proximity to some of the more “lively” sois.

  1. Citismart Residence

This is perhaps one of the lesser known condos in Pattaya but a quality building located in probably the quietest soi, soi 1. The rooms are of a good size and condo has a rooftop pool and probably some of the best security in Pattaya. This is well worth looking at if you are considering staying in Pattaya for the long term.

  1. The Urban

The Urban has been around a few years but is in a great location on soi 15 off Pattaya 2nd Road – behind The Avenue Shopping Centre. The complex has 3 buildings and is surprisingly quiet with individual swimming pools for each building. There is also a well equipped gym. This is an ideal location for those that don’t drive and don’t like taking motorbike taxis.

  1. Apus

Located on Soi Yume, close to Big C Extra in Central Pattaya, Apus is another of the lesser known condos but again a quality option. It is convenient for most areas of town and the complex itself is well designed and a good standard of build. It has all the usual things that you would expect including swimming pool, gym and 24 hour security.

  1. The Legend

The Legend is located on soi Arunothai towards South Pattaya. Again spread over 3 buildings this is a quiet location although there is not a lot to do in the surrounding area. Transport would be required so as not to feel isolated.
