This hotel has a beautiful setting the food was great and service people were very attentive. The little bungalow we stayed in was comfortable, and the sounds of the birds to wake up to was amazing, the rock walls in the bathroom made for a unique and very cool shower.

This hotel was very different than my other stays while in Thailand. The idea of staying in a jungle setting was interesting but I did not enjoy it. There were ants in the shower area and a lizard got into my room. One night there was a roach on my nightstand near my bed. I slept with the lights and... More

This is a paradise set among jungle, let me tell you the journey we had to get here, as we travelled from one end of Thailand to Kanachanburi province. Bascially from South to North via Don Meuang airport...We were told to arrive by 6pm, but it was more like 8.30pm, it was dark, we couldn't find the entrance of the... More

We have arrived very late and got in touch beforehand and the replies were not only friendly but fast. Hotel is in great location for a very relaxed weekend trip. Have to take long tail to get there. Breakfast is okay and the little pool areas is quite relaxing.

Clean and comfortable with just the bare necessities. No storage or closet. Great location if you are looking for a secluded area and relaxation in contrast to Bangkok. Most of the staff are Mon, who are refugees from Burma and we found tend to be more reserved than the Thai yet, once you engage them they are very warm and... More

We stayed for one night as part of a tour of Thailand and this was the worst hotel by far of our entire 3 week trip. The room was grubby and smelt damp, the not entirely clean bed sheets were threadbare and the blanket I did not want to examine. The door to the shower was rotten and the basin... More

While here for short 1 night stay, my only disappointment is that I didn't stay longer. After staying in several simular ‘down the river’ hotels I can say that this one has been the most comfortable. The location gives the sense of remoteness without being a tiresome trek to get there and the resorts grounds and river are gorgeous setting.... More

The food was deliscious!!! The area was so beautiful! The local guide Bobo was superb, but the rest of the staff was very distant and not very warm. Money is charged for everything. A friend of us needed to go to a pharmacy and they tried to charge him 2000 bhat for it.

Dear eva279, Please kindly understand that the charge was the transfer charges on boat and rental car for roundtrip to the pharmacy. We do not charge for any emergency cases. Kindest regards, River Kwai Resotel More
