Not the best location for me as I only had 36 hrs in which to reacquaint myself with the city after 30 yrs ! Hired a lovely driver booked via hotel for 6 hours 1200 Baht but due to heavy traffic it wasn't best wAy to get around so I'd rec the subway ! Breakfast ok, room service dinner good and bed and linens v good. So all in all v v good value
We booked this as a last minute deal to Thailand and found it to be a perfectly acceptable 3* hotel. Reception staff were friendly and welcoming. The door staff are a bit hit or miss but this is a 3* hotel. Our room was on the top floor and was clean and tidy. We did have a very good view over the city. The air con and wifi worked as expected. There are only safes in the room if you upgrade to a deluxe room. If you have a standard room you need to use a strong box in the reception which isn't a big problem just a minor inconvenience. Breakfast is ok however this is one of the few hotels we have stayed in where the eggs are pre cooked and left to go cold which isn't ideal. The range of food available is ok but nothing to write home about. As has been stated in other reviews the food does cater more for their oriental tourists. I suppose for me the only problem with this hotel is the distance from the city centre. It is a 30 to 40 minute taxi ride in to the centre of Bangkok. On the upside for this hotel is the night market which is 10 minutes walk away and has some very good street food and a couple of very good bars. All in all an adequate 3* hotel but wouldn't be in a hurry to stay here again.
After the first night here we came home to a cockroach in the bed. After calling reception, they sent a housekeeper with bug spray. Once the house keeper started spraying the room, 4 more cockroaches were found. Second night here my husband had a cockroach crawling on his back whilst we were asleep in the middle of the night. Luckily he felt it and we used the rest of the bug spray in the area around the bed. To our dismay this was not the end as it turns out the bathroom has its own cockroach inhabitants. Our room number is 1405 and we have complained twice and still not received any correspondence from the manager or anyone in charge at the hotel. We have however. Wen given a second can of bug spray.... I would not recommend this hotel, you will not have a peaceful nights sleep as I am writing this at 2am.
We stayed here for 3 nights whilst we visited Bangkok, the hotel rooms were average at best but we didn't spent much time in it. We hired a driver for the day for 2000bht called Mr Tom and he was excellent. He took us to the floating markets, golden Buddha, grand Palace then shopping and he waiting for us, he also dropped us off the following night free of charge. He really made our trip. We also has a traditional Thai massage in the hotels spa which was an experience. As we arrived Late on the Monday ever big we are in the hotels cafe which was lovely
Massive disappointment! Told it was average hotel which I can cope with but there was nothing remotely average about it. Arrived after 12 hr flight, hard sale on tours before we even got to our room. Then manager tried to claim breakfasts had not been paid for for 4 of us when it had. Just got into room and up he arrived to check this again despite having shown him booking form at reception. Room basic at best! Bathroom appalling! Mound on bath and wall tiles dirty. Window dirty. Maids noisy every morning. However did book driver 'Ben' for day and he was great. Only good thing about this hotel. So pleased to check out!!
This is possibly the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I stayed here with my 8 year old daughter for 3 nights at the end of a 5 week trip through China, Vietnam and Cambodia. We were just in Bangkok for a weekend before flying back to Ireland. The hotel was part of my flight price when I booked my flights with the travel agent Trailfinders. It was the only hotel in our trip that I did not book but I assumed as Trailfinders suggested it it would be fine. How wrong I was . I knew it was not in a central location and that was told it was a basic midrange hotel all of which I was fine with . However this was not the case. Below are the issues I had at the hotel 1 --My first interaction with the hotel was when I tried to book an airport transfer. They asked me to send all of my credit card details in a word document and that I would pay on arrival. I replied and asked for a secure link where I could input my card details but was plainly told either put all the details in the word document or get my own taxi. I got my own taxi. 2 --On arrival at the hotel the front desk staff were abrupt , disinterested and didn't seem to have much English until it came to demanding my credit card details . The room had already been paid for but i assumed it was in case of room damage so I gave her my card. It would help if the staff dealing with guests had the English to explain fully what they are asking for . 3-- The doorman - 'boy' - a young guy who seemed to be working as a doorman showed us to our room. We had just arrived and I had no small notes in Thai currency to tip him so I thanked him when he showed us to the door and expected him to leave. He did not leave . He stood there and said - ' you must pay me a tip now', I said im sorry I dont have any notes right now , we've just arrived from Cambodia , he repeated 'no, you must pay me a tip now '. Eventually he left. I subsequently read reviews here that had similar experiences to me that met the same door man. I believe his name was Moo. 4- The room - it was a decent size but unfortunately grotty and grimey. There was a bath with the shower in it but the shower did not work and the bath was full of bugs. The bed was as hard as rock, the same feeling as sleeping on the floor. 5- Discovering the state of our room I went to front desk and I asked to be moved explaining the state of the room . As I was explaining to the staff member, she simply walked away and started chatting with another staff member. Completely rude and ignorant . I have never seen anything like it in a hotel , ever. Also worth noting that this was a different staff member to the one that checked us in . I was told I would have to wait another night to change rooms as the hotel was fully booked ( I later checked online and there were rooms available to book on numerous websites). We were eventually moved the following day to a room with a working shower and no bugs. 6 . Breakfast - the breakfast area was not clean - the food is catering to the Chinese tourists who seem to be the main guests at the hotel. The bread we tried to toast had mold on it . I tried to explain to the staff member working there but he didn't understand. I think I gave up at that point. This was our overall experience at the Cha Da. The main issue I have is the rudeness of the staff, mainly the front desk staff. On our 5 weeks travelling through 3 other countries we stayed in budget hotels and luxury hotels and never until we arrived at the Bangkok Cha Da did we experience such rudeness and indifference . You could book a cheaper more central hotel in Bangkok where you would get a warmer reception . Whatever you do , don't stay here.
Cha Da is a little bit outside of the main centre of Bangkok but the Huai Kwang MTR station is 5 minutes walk and you can be in the centre of town within 20 minutes. The hotel is a good mid-range level. Large, clean bedrooms, good aircon, and good bathroom, albeit slightly dated. Breakfast is excellent offering a wide range of Thai, European and International options. Staff are very helpful. Variety of restaurants and large shopping centres nearby. Only downside is that there was quite a lot of noise in the corridor outside our room late at night. Don't know if this was staff or other guests. The maids have a desk in the corridor in front of the lift that has a telephone that periodically rings during the night. This disdurbed my sleep on the first night
We are staying at the Cha-Da Hotel in Bangkok for 2nights. The location is great, the rooms aren't the best but it clean and that's all you need. But the thing that made our stay great was Tom the driver!! He is so friendly and made us feel like we never needed to rush at any of our stops. He has a wonderful sense of humor and was great at explaining what and was going on around us while driving. Thank you Tom for a great Bangkok experience 😊
Firstly, the staff were very friendly upon arrival and recommended their in house taxi service. The WARNING is; don't use the taxi service. We took their word for it and used it to get to a cooking class. It's not metered and we were in position whereby we would be late if we didn't take it. We paid 500 Bhat for the trip. The EXACT same trip with a metered taxi that actually took longer because of traffic was 142 bhat - be careful. Wi-fi is unusable, but breakfast was pleasant. An average stay overall.
So this hotel is firstly a bit out of the way of central Bangkok and took some time to get from the airport to the hotel. Upon arrival we were booked in promptly and shown to our room, when in the lift with the bell boy he was trying to sell us excursions and after a 12 hour flight and 45 min transfer your not really ready for this! We tried to get some sleep but was awoken by reception an hour later again asking about excursions. All a bit disorientated and jet lagged we did question if it had been a dream. Several hours later we were awoken again but this time by laughter!! Several of the maids had begun a full blown ( loud) conversation down the hall way and due to the marble floors and walls this heightened the noise. The phone at their station kept ringing and they would chat again. Very strange set up and it felt as if they were in the room with us!!!! If no, no with two very jet lagged guests. Regardless the hotel it self is clean and spacious, air con worked amazingly well and not a bad view of the city. Food was ok but was served a gone off pint :/ we did ask for another but we're offered bottled instead, the staff did action promptly but did seem a little reluctant at first. The hotel has a lot of potential to be great but unfortunately due to above we wouldn't return to this hotel.
