This place is perfect if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful getaway close to Bangkok. It is a boutique style hotel, so do not expect anything fancy. The hotel is situated on the Mae Klong river. It is only 15-20mins drive from Don Hoi Lot, in case you stop there for a lunch break. The Amphawa floating market is... More

This is a small, Thai-style, place with small, riverside, open-air restaurant. There are 8-10 rooms. Our room # 3 has a huge king-size bed which almost fills the room. The mattress is very hard. There is a refrigerator, TV, and a small, efficient, bathroom with shower (no tub). Excellent a/c. There are no chairs or stools, no shelves or drawers;... More

Location: right by the river, in a very quiet area. No shops around, you need to take the boat to go anywhere. Nice view of the river, very, very quiet. Room: literally traditional thai houses made of teak wood. Very nice rooms, but no amenities, old TV, little details that are way better is other hotels in the same price... More

We traveled in a group of four and we got different rooms. My Amphawa 2 is located in the traditional Thai house complex. We have a vast porch and a big wood swing. The room is a little small but good for 2 persons. The wooden floor made me feel nostalgia and I spent some time loitering. My friends, on... More

The house that was constructed during the reign of King Rama VI and crafted by Chinese craftsmen is combining Western and Thai architecture and is facing the river. Located 100 m... More

The Legend Maeklong is converted from an old Colonial house right on the Maeklong river. Unlike the Chao Phraya river, the Maeklong is still clean & quiet and is breezy all day. Sitting outdoors is very pleasant. Aside from the colonial house, there's also a group of wooden, traditional Thai houses which are new and beautiful but you don't get... More
