We arrived at the Cha Da Hotel in Bangkok to a bell boy (Mu), who was very helpful and full of smiles. We then went to check in, and were received by unfriendly people at the reception desk.
Thankfully, the lobby was air-conditioned as in July, BKK is extremely hot. The lobby was very nice, looks like 4 star.
You're then taken upstairs. the elevators are not air conditioned and neither are the hallways which is really uncomfortable. We got to the rooms which look pretty much like the photos on the website, but with a tube TV, SERIOUSLY??..
The bathrooms are not up to 4 star standard, are mouldy, have old plumbing and do not have any doors!
The sheets and towels have stains on them, that look like they've been badly bleached out.
The rooms are otherwise clean and have NO insects. The air conditioner is very potent which is a plus.
We were on the 4th floor and the outside balcony was very dirty, and the beds are made from granite.
The breakfasts are really bland with coffee that tastes disgusting.
If you're looking for a budget hotel, it should be fine, but this is not a hotel for people who are particular about cleanliness.
There is a restaurant near the lobby where the prices are absolutely ridiculous!
There is a charge for WIFI (200THB/Day/device) which is also ridiculous.
Just sit near the restaurant and use their free wifi.
The location is bad, far away from most attractions.
