Villa Cha-Cha

Reviewed 4 March 2014

A beautiful clean place and my second stay delivered the same matter of fact disciplined service. Friendly, with many of the same staff from two years ago.

Unfortunately this time however I had 10000baht of clothing shopping stolen from my locked room on the afternoon of Sunday the 23rd of February. It could only have been someone with a key to the room.

It was a smart theft with a little taken from each bag that was sitting on top of my pile of shopping - you would not have noticed unless you had been keeping the same itemised purchase and packing records as I do. Of 25 bags, 8 were opened and handfuls taken from each bag so the theft was therefore unnoticeable without unpacking each bag and item counting.

The hotel will not respond to my mail and have hung up on my phone calls.
I am obviously not going to use this otherwise very nice accommodation again.
I warn others not to use it as a shopping base.

Very disappointing.

If you like boutique hotels full of art and sculpture with beautifully decorated rooms, this is the place to stay. The hotel is a visual delight and is brilliantly positioned to be near all the action and yet quiet enough to be an oasis in this busy city. The road that the restaurant opens onto is attractive and full of bars, stalls and a great laundry over the road. Recommended.

Villa Cha Cha is located very close (2 minuted walk) to the Khoa San road but still somewhat far enough such that it is quite. It is about 45 minutes away from the airport. The location is strongest point of the hotel, beyond this the place is very average.

The room was of adequate size and utilitarian design, the bathroom was of adequate size. The walls were plain and our room had no windows to the outside and as such was always dark!!! At one point my wife dumped juice down a drain and we left, when we came back there were ants crawling all over the sink!!!! We asked to be moved to another room which was done promptly.

The staff were polite enough but were not that helpful at all.

The main floor of the hotel has a unique design but seemed relatively empty, we had booked this place not so much for the rooms but for the fact that it seemed it was a good place to socialize. I could see this being true but it was empty when we were there and this was likely partially due to the Bangkok protests. The hotel connects to a restaurant that provided a solid American breakfast for $3 CAD and at night turned into a decent bar. We paid bout $60 CAD a night

Overall I am indifferent to this place and would recommend it only for it location. If you are looking for something more then 3 star I would not recommend but if you are looking for some place to simply sleep and then explore the city then it will suffice.

We were at Villa ChaCha at the end of our 1 month trip (January 2014). After searching for a cheap place in the area we decided to pay a little more for a good night sleep. We were not disappointed! Our room was big, the bed was great and we were not bothered by any noise at all! Okay it´s a little more expensive and the staff isn´t very friendly. But it´s well worth it and the area is great. (thanon Rambuttri, Khaosan road)

I stayed for one night in January 2014.
It is ok, although most likely I will choose another place next time I visit Bangkok.
The pros: The place is well situated to take part of the fun at Khao San road, while being tucked away between the buildings to guarantee nice and quiet for the times you want it. The rooms are beautifully decorated, spacious and clean.
The cons: It is not so cheap compared to neighboring hotels, the extra you pay for the pool is wasted as the pool is right in the middle of the restaurant and all day hidden from the sun. The staff/receptionist is very rude and unpleasant to deal with (when it comes to check-in or getting a valid card for wifi). The breakfast is not included which is not reasonable for the price you pay for night. Also they request a 2000 THB!!! guarantee for the key card - this or they want your passport to hold - both ways an unreasonable request.

While every visit to Bangkok should involve the Khaosan Road, you don't want to be staying on it. The noise alone would have you running back to the islands. BUT, if you want to be in the thick of it and staying somewhere nice then Villa Cha-Cha could be the answer.

Situated in the road parallel to Khaosan this is a little less frenetic and a lot less noisy. The hotel itself is behind one of the street restaurants but once you enter the lobby it is really quite secluded from the madness. The price is reasonable and the rooms are pretty large for something so central.

Only downside is that the showers never seem to creep above tepid at best. When I come back to Bangkok I will stay here again rather than risk getting something less good than this.

We come here every time we visit Bangkok.

The place is not cheap and the rooms are mostly not the best you can get for the money, but it is a quiet oasis next to the loud and hectic Khaosan area.

You can reserve the rooms over the website from the hotel. That makes it more easy if you come late at night and do not want to run around with your backpack after arrival

We like to stay here and we'll come back again
