I arrived by afternoon train from Bangkok at 17:30. I was glad the booking (booking.com) was received, because it was fully booked(week-end). The staff is very kind and the swimmingpool was a delight after 3 hours in the rambling train. I had room B17, (1000baht). Perfect big room with a private shower, toilet, fridge, tv, airo, safe and king size... More

The fridge kept turning off when we took the key out of the power, but that was because the staff had it plugged into the wrong point. We changed it over and then it was... More

The Pong Phen guesthouse is the best way to stay in Kan. Do not expect luxury rooms. But great value, very good friendly service and maybe the best food in town. Went there alreay more times. Book one of the rooms close to the river. Cost a bit more but very quiet and nice
