The only word that comes to my mind is.... Trickster!
We were here for 5 nights, everything was simply correct. The restaurant service was slow, rude and forgetful.
But the surprise came the last day, while we were doing the checkout,( they were holding our passport for those 5 days, its completly illegal!)
During the checkout they showed us a sheet with a grey spot of 2 square cm, to our eyes was nothing to worry about, but the lady (to name in a polite way to the receptionist) forced us to pay the sheet in concept of damage or break. We were trying to explain that this little spot could be simply remove, cleaning with bleach, laundry detergent...
And even more! How could we know that this sheet was ours? How can they threaten us to pay in order to get back our passport? Has not a hotel a proper laundry service?
Finally, after a huge argue, we paid 1000baths!!!!!! (30€)... It was imposible to reason out with them.
I have never seen such a bad service. Please, beaware of this kind of fraud.

Villa Cha Cha seems to make a lot more of itself than what it really is. The main thing it has going for it is the location, which is near enough to Ko San Road to be in the middle of the action but far enough for a peaceful night's sleep. The room was spacious and clean, bed a bit hard, but the weirdest thing was the layout - there was a strange tiled alcove in our room, which we eventually realised led into the bathroom via the shower curtain (so much for the lockable door!) so don't expect much privacy!! There was a decent bar straight outside the hotel which is a good place for grabbing breakfast or a drink, but it isn't loud and we had no trouble with noise, unlike everywhere on Ko San. There is a pool, which seemed pretty clean, although a bit small. Overall, fairly decent place in a good location, but don't go there looking for a dream holiday.

A lovely hotel, clean and reasonably priced in comparison to other accommodation. The rooms are clean and large. Impressive bathroom. The small pool is pretty busy in the afternoons but it's great to have a pool in such a great location.

Roo m cleaned daily. Contemporary decor. Good aircon. Ok tv channels.

I thought it was real value for money -although it is a bit cheaper if you just turn up rather than booking on line as you can't book the cheaper rooms in advance. (even in person if you are planning to return after your stay which I found odd!)

Next to the noisy and crowded Kao Shan Road, this is a quiet place to stay. A not very big but pleasant pool together with the bar that is shared next door makes this hotel a good place. 24 hs bar-restaurant open "Macarroni" is within the same premises as the hotel so you can have your breakfast or a beer to be charged to your room. Good value for the standard room and they can also keep luggage if you travel as we did to Cambodia for a couple of days.
There is travel tour desk but you can have better prices outside hotel.
I would choose it again although I didn't like Kao Shan area at all. If you cross the street there are better and quieter places.

Villa Cha Cha was our first stop in Bangkok. It's should cost about 200baht in a taxi from the airport.

Villa Cha Cha was easy to find and in a good location for night life and the Grand Palace (walking distance). The rooms are modern, clean with a few added extras like a tv and a fridge. The only thing that let the room down is that the bathroom had no window. Instead it had wooden bars and a curtain so you felt like you was outside. This made it difficult to avoid Mosquitos and other bugs.

We also booked a room for 3 Adults and we was provided with a double bed and a single mattress that was put on the floor with a sheet. Not ideal but we managed.

In the lobby you can book all excursions but if your booing the overnight bus or train to Chiang Mai or any other location I'd recommend going to Bus station Mo Chit (not sure on spelling). It's 100 baht in a tuk tuk if you avoid the express toll road. Here you can book your bus for around 800 baht VIP which is much cheaper than quoted. Or much lower for standard.
The restaurant down stairs in the lobby are very good. English breakfast such as bacon sandwich, scrambled eggs etc are all available along with some continental bits and of course Thai cuisine.
We stayed for two nights and found it ideal as it covered all the basics. However, there is a place called Sleepwithinn across the way which looked better quality.

We were at Villa Cha-Cha last year and decided that it was still the best option for us in the Khaosan Road area (better the devil you know...). We stayed for 5 nights. Last year we had a room on the 6th floor but this time were on the second floor. OK the view wasn't great (the roof of the neighbouring building) but surprisingly it was quieter than the room we had last year, apart from some noise one night from the alley below near the kitchen.
We had a couple of problems while there. One hot afternoon we came back to our room and had no water in the bathroom. We notified reception who immediately got a maintenance man up to our room and withing 5 minutes we had water back on. Also later the same day, we couldn't open the room safe (maybe we put the wrong code in). Once again, within a few minutes one of the staff had it open for us. We thought that this service was excellent.
My only 'gripe' is that the Macaroni Club is in the front of the hotel and every time we walked through to the road, we were accosted by well meaning restaurant staff trying to convince us to sit down for a meal, even outside meal times. After 5 days it got a bit tiresome! But other than that, the breakfast was good, the service was excellent and once again we would stay there if visiting Bangkok. And we love the artwork and sculptures!

If your looking for a nice place for few nights in Bangkok then this is it. The rooms are clean and comfortable but don't expect a view. The staff are helpful and friendly. Downstairs us a huge restaurant that serves a large range of foods.

The location is good as you are in the Kosarn area but not in the thick of it.
