The room was HUGE, very clean, comfortable bed, very nice owner that invited us for fresh fruit even though we arrived late in the evening. Located close to the city center, few minutes walk to restaurants and bars. But the place is quite and undesturbed. No breakfast included, but you have a fridge where you can store some food. All...

Had a great stay here and would return. Can add your own padlock to the door and coffee making facilities on the communal landing but was fine. Small fridge in room and bathroom was clean but no hanging space and minimal storage but fine if backpacking. Great stay

We spent one night in an upper floor double room, good size, clean, with fridge, TV, good AC and WiFi but wet bathroom with a bit of a dodgy odour from time to time, though not a big problem. No kettle in room but hot water and coffee (no tea) in an alcove along the corridor. Well located, off the... More

Located at the end of a soi,the entrance looks unfinished. The room was well equipped,TV with some foreign stations,fridge. Beds nice and firm. No view from the window. There are no services except bookings for minibuses. Outside the guest house are laundry and food outlets. This place is above backpacker standard so you don't get the noisy drunken visitors that...

We liked Kanchanaburi so much we ended up staying 7 nights overall and Thai Guesthouse was the perfect place. The whole family is genuinely friendly from the moment you walk in. Even gave us a few bananas while we ate dinner at the cute outside sitting area. The rooms are a great size for the price and pretty clean. They... More

We enjoyed our stay here. The room is great for the cheap price that you pay. The room was a good size, and there was a good choice of channels to watch on the TV. There's free coffee making facilities, although it's a shame there's no tea available. There's also a microwave which could be handy. The staff were friendly,... More

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
