Bangkok Cha-Da Hotel4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed here for 2 nights. It is quite far from the main centre, it takes about 30 mins in a taxi, longer in traffic. We did arrive at 7am and check in wasn’t until 2pm (I think) and the staff quickly sorted us a room so we were able to check in on arrival, free of charge. That said, the beds were very uncomfortable and the shower didn’t drain so after 5 mins we’d be stood in a full bath. There is complimentary water, sat next to crisps and we had the crisps assuming they were free, however we were charged on departure without warning. Breakfast lacked choice and was very basic. The food in the coffee shop downstairs was average and when we went up for our bill, the staff would leave the cafe and return 5-10 minutes later having left us waiting (this happened numerous times). The staff were quite rude, they refused to accept a slightly torn note and made us charge our meal to our room (even though McDonald’s accepted the note), and they were trying to sell us overpriced trips we didn’t want. On our second night, there was somebody screaming and shouting at 1am for an hour and nobody dealt with it. I would stay somewhere more central next time and look closer at the previous reviews.
Bangkok cha da hotel situated around 10 mins walk to Huay kwang MRT Station with good links to Bangkok. The rooms are spacious & comfortable bed with good views, WiFi in the rooms can vary on signal, rooftop swimming pool, the restaurant is very nice & spacious with good food to offer, competitive rates for rooms & has shops & a mall not far away, massage parlours & other nightlife close by, all in a great hotel worth staying in & no problem bringing a guest back either..
We stayed there for 2 nights. Room is clean but dated. Breakfast is good. Coffee shop staff were very unfriendly and not in a mood for clients. I had to go to the counter to place an order, as well as to pay my bill. Hotel is close to shops and underground stations which made it comfortable. Afterwards we found out about the hotel shuttle, but still not sure if this is free or not.
Travel dates: May 2015. Lovely hotel with all the necessary amenities. Friendly staff. Small and expensive spa though (went out of the hotel for massages). Very nice bar to relax in. Didn't enjoy any food from anywhere in Bangkok but the Tom-yum soup from the hotel restaurant was not bad at all.
What made this hotel was the polite and friendly staff. Me and my friend were taken around by one of their drivers to all the places we wanted to hit in one day as we were running out of time. They gave us a lovely day designed just for us. The hotel is well positioned also for the areas you want to go to when in Bangkok.
We stayed here from 8th May to 11th May before moving on to another location in Thailand. Upon arrival, we were greeted and the porter came to collect our bags from the car and carried them up the steps. Check in was easy enough and took only a few minutes. We found our room, on the 10th floor quickly and entered. The room was large and spacious, simply decorated and perfectly adequate for a few days stay. Had a TV and a writing desk, phone, tea and coffee facilities, a fridge, safe box and wardrobe. Bed was large and comfortable. The bathroom was big enough and i didn't find a problem with cleanliness. True, the place looks a little dated but who really goes to a 3* city hotel or the decor? We had breakfast there everyday - they had a fresh egg counter where they could make omlette or scramble. Some asian foods and also western style breakfast, all hot and edible. Service was ok. We didn't go up to the pool, we were far too busy in Bangkok for that. Only negative was that the concierge staff, while they spoke ok English, were never able to answer any of our questions (i.e, a rough idea of taxi cost from the hotel to center of town...they dont know) And they can't get you a taxi anywhere unless you're going to the airport which was unusual. But we got along fine.We didn't find the room noisy either - no problems. The air conditioning was good. The location is great - while not in the city centre, it is close to the metro which is easy to use and if you walk down toward the metro you will find wonderful local street food markets with an absence of tourists - which we loved! If i came back to Bangkok, i would stay here again with no problems.
We stayed here for 3 nights in April 2018. The Hotel was clean and the staff were friendly but we did encounter a language barrier on several occasions. The Reception offered a currency exchange but wouldn't accept Sterling so we had to go elsewhere to change cash. The Hotel offers a taxi service which is good and saves a lot of hassle. We took the taxi to the Floating Market which was good but it is a VERY long way out of Bangkok. The location of the Hotel is OK but quite some way out of Bangkok centre, however the MRT station is very close so it's not a problem. Our room was fine, basic but clean but we did have problems with families in the neighbouring rooms! There were 2 families with young children who were running up and down the corridors at 6am, I did report this to reception and it didn't happen again. The breakfast wasn't to my liking, it was mostly curry, noodles, rice etc but it's Bangkok and you can't expect a full English! Our stay was OK, would I stay here again? Probably not.
This hotel has made me wonder what the point of a star rating is. If the staff had not been rude and the room had a real shower I would consider giving it 2 stars, but the fact that it is rated 4 stars is beyond me. We left after the first night to go and stay somewhere else. Save yourself the trouble.
The last time I stayed at this hotel it was named the Siam Beverly and it was rated 3-star. Now with a change in name and a upgraded to 4-star, I was expecting something better. Arriving on a rainy day, there was no porter to help with my heavy luggage as there was only a staircase leading to the main door and the crowd of tourists gathering at the only door (the other was closed due to some problems). Finally I got my luggage up the stairs and at least the check-in was fast and smooth. However there was only 2 lifts and they were not the fastest I've seen and the crowd that came back from some visits were really huge. After waiting for the 4th round, I managed to get into the lift. The plastic key was really a bit tricky to open the door and I finally did open it after a few attempts. The room was not very bright and the decorations and furnishings really need an upgrade. Nothing other than 2 bottles of drinking water and the soap and shampoo in the bathroom. Did not see and bedroom slippers or toothbrush and comb given. Well, that's a first for me in a so-called 4-star hotel. I asked for a quiet room in my booking and was given the last 2nd room in the corridor. However a phone for the chambermaid located at a counter in the lift lobby of the floor rang so loudly and many many times as there was no one to answer it. I dared not imagine what if I'm staying in the room nearest to the lifts. Then the 2 rooms beside mine was given to 2 families who seemed to have lost control of their kids who ran around, shouting and slamming the doors until for more than half an hour which I decided to call the reception and complained about it as it was almost 10pm. That did the trick which I could then slept rather undisturbed on a somewhat uncomfortable bed with bad spring. The next morning the breakfast was basic and nothing that I would find outstanding. After checking-out which was rather fast, again there was no porter in sight and again I carried my heavy luggage and pulled it to the main road and hailed a taxi heading to my next destination. I chose this hotel because it was nearer to where I'm heading and my favorite ones were full plus having a rather good impression when I last stayed here. After this visit, this hotel will be way down my list and I would choose to stay slightly further if my usual ones were full again.
Stayed in Cha Da for 2 nights from the 28/3/18. The hotel was basic but the rooms were generally clean. We used the roof Pool but after swimming in it for 10 minutes we were covered in a green algae ! It is very near an underground station and was generally easy to get to the centre of Bangkok. Personally I wouldn't use the hotel again but it's ok for a cheap stay for a night or two.
