Room was very clean. Air con worked very well. Youngm manager was great gave us a lift when we had to be at the bridge at a certain time. Enormous bed. TV had a ton (literally) of channels. Scooter and car rent round the corner. Regardless of the very cheap price this was just a very pleasant stay with little... More

Booked in advance and paid 750 baht for aircon double. Felt this was expensive - which, after reading 2 previous reviews about same room costing 650/700 baht, it seems it was. Maybe notbest to book in advance here as Kanchanaburi has loads of accommodation, much of which costs less than 500 baht.. Quiet location away from noisy main street and... More

Thai guesthouse is very well run by Note who goes the extra mile to help one. He speaks good English which does help us travelers a lot. It is well positioned to many attractions and transport to out of town attractions is no problem. The rooms are very spacious, clean and light. Bar fridge a bonus. Air con worked well.... More

The room itself was also very clean with no cobwebs. The hotel is very close to a nearby supermarket and also to the main tourist street.... More

Pre-booked, and paid 700BHT for first night - A/C, double, etc. Not worth it. Switched to fan for nights 2-4, and kept same room, and paid 400BHT - definitely worth it. Clean, large double room, with good bathroom and hot water. Water bottles supplied. Fridge. Good linen. Good location - short walk around corner to main "walking street", 7-11 style... More

Thai guesthouse is clean, located on a quiet street right off of a main area of kanchanaburi with excellent restaurants, laundry and massage services. We checked in late and one of the owners even stayed up 3 hours waiting for us (we let them know in advance). Our room was big and clean with a beautiful white tile floor and... More
