“Excellent”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

My second time here and every time I stay 2 weeks. Excellent location, a great team at the reception and the cleaning ladies do a very good job.this hotel doesn't have a fit center but that's not a problem or a room service ,as is 3 star hotel I recommended highly .

Room Tip: If you want the wifi, try it before confirming the rooms as in some rooms doesn't work.

First I searched a lot for a place in Phuket, does not located in the crowded tourist area. Kata was amazing location to choose. The location of the hotel is a little bit tricky for the Taxi drivers from the airport, but a phone call was just enough to get there. the hotel is generally clean and the staff is helpful and funny. the rooms is a little small but also clean. It was really a very good value for the money. The breakfast is very good with a lot of varieties everyday. I didn't use the pool but it looked good. the distance from the hotel to the beach is around 10-15 minutes by walking but the hotel have Tuk_Tuk trips from/to the beach. A lot of good restaurants are around the hotel area as well a taxi stop, which can be used to go anywhere in Phuket. Anyway It is a lovely hotel in a lovely location and i would like to visit again.

Chaba is located conveniently to the north end of Kata with a range of restaurants, bars and the beach all close by. The hotel is a good three star and the room I had spacious and comfortable. I booked based on recommendations here and was not disappointed. Clean and comfortable though having now been and spending all my time at the beach would question the value of paying to stay at a hotel with a pool.

This will be a short feedback: great little hotel!
Very friendly and helpful staff, pool surrounded by palmtrees, a buffet breakfast with lot of choices (even 2 different Thai dishes every morning, eggs the way you wanted them), spacious rooms (although the beds could be wider) with bedsheets changed daily. Great value for money.

We enjoyed our stay at the Phuket Chaba for 5 nights and found the majority of the staff to be very helpful. I didn't like the system of having the safe at the from desk as it was a pain to be going backwards and forwards to it. We had a 2 bedroom bungalow(3b) which did overlook the green stagnant water and directly in front and to the side of our balcony was a spare plot which looked like a rubbish dump. However, it did not smell and we were grateful not to be on the main road. The pool was fabulous. The previous review said there were only a few deck chairs but we never found it a problem to get one. The breakfast was more than adequate, trying to cater for all the tastes of different cultures but for us they had lovely pineapple and watermelon, eggs, great thai food( green curry/noodles/stir fried vegs) toast, jams and to top it off, fabulous hot PROPER coffee! My only complaint would be the pillows which were very bulky but this seems to be everywhere in Thailand.
Kata however was disapointing compared to our last trip there 3 years ago. The beach was packed to capacity with beach chairs lining the beach from one side to another, 3 or 4 rows of them. We only heard another 2 people speak English in our 5 days there which wasn't a problem for my husband and I but my older teenage son and his cousin, both 19, found the nightlife pretty boring, even after venturing to Karon on a couple of nights.
The Chaba has a great night market opposite the hotel on a Monday and Thursday night. The prices are good, you can get some prices down, but most of them are low anyway. The food section was interesting and we ate fabulous corn on the cob, spring rolls and pad thai(quite hot!)

I rarely write a review but they earned it :)
hotel was overall nice, nice room with balcony.. location is quite central and we rent a scooter so everything is close... got some mosquitos at night (but that was everywhere in kata)
i give them the thumbs up because: helpful and nice, help us keep our items (and shower) on the day of the checkout (till the flight), fixed what was needed rather very fast..

to be sincere, if you go kata is only for the beach... we loved the hotel! cant say the same about kata beach...

Good value for the price and staff very relaxed and reasonably helpful. We stayed three nights with two rooms next to each other on the third floor block 5 (rooms 533 and 532) which were nice, big, clean and 533 had a balcony. It's an average hotel and has a good location not far from the beach (10 minutes slow walk), shops, bars and restaurants. The pool area is just ok with limited sunbeds and a small pool and there is a small outside dining area by the pool. The breakfast is limited in choice but ok and the service friendly.
We wouldn't recommend the bungalows by the big pond (looks stagnant with probably lots of mosquitoes) but otherwise the main hotel building is not a bad place to stay for the price for a few days. Nothing really exciting about the place.

Room Tip: Block 5 main building is near the pool and quite nice and quiet.
