Stayed here for 2 nights from the 7th-9th January. When we arrived our Bungalow that we booked was not available so they put us into a "New Room" which was great. Views over the River Kwai and very quiet and tranquil. The room was spacious with a large bed, separate bathroom, small fridge and Air Con. Free WiFi was available... More

We stayed in a bungalow-clean, spacious, comfortable bed.... The views from the restaurant and pool are fantastic. One evening during a brilliant sunset we observed a Caiman in the river. This was one of those rare places where we could have stayed a long while. Prices were reasonable, location central to several good restaurants and most of the tourist attractions... More

Have been coming to Pong Phen for quite a few years now and for the price the rooms are excellent, especially those overlooking the river. The food is too notch and they can really cook western food as well. Highly recommended.

My cousin and I stayed for a couple of nights at Pong Phen and were delighted by the experience. The place is located right next to Sang Chuto Road (a lively pub street lined with resto-bars and massage parlours). The guesthouse is right next to the river and the river view can be enjoyed from the pool side outdoor seating... More

Just to Say its a good GH and a good restaurant toi. If You smile and are kind and polite , it is like a mirror. Many tourists are realy not very kind even not polite so they have learned from them. Whe had and have always smiling faces. Mil and Ben belgians living in Bkk.

Clean,friendly,good food, great breakfast and quiet. Have stayed in the 400bht aircon cheapies on the waters edge, they are basic but comfortable. Oddly though you don't get drinking water like other places. Stayed in the rooms next to the good pool for 650 . These are a bit more spacious but subject to noisy people returning late at night so... More

We chose Pong Phen because our friend had read about it in LP. Paid 1000THB (£20) per night for 2 of us including choice of breakfasts. The bungalow was great & there's a swimming pool (decent, not huge) as well as great bar/ resto at the guest house. The resto serves good food (see separate resto review). Location of the... More

For few hundreds baths you can get clean room with hot shower, air conditioning and river view. Located in the middle of main road, just in right place for city walking. Swimming pool is great bonus for hottest daytime.
