I have recently had the pleasure of travelling to Kanchanaburi for Anzac Day. There were 7 of us all together and we found this great little guesthouse Pong Phen right on the River Kwai. Great pool with rooms situated around the pool. They also have lovely bungalows. Very good price. On the Sunday following Anzac Day we were all quite... More

I come to Kanchanaburi 5 times a year and this Guesthouse is the first place I call, looking for a room. I always try and book the bungalow style accommodation, just love them. The food is also great here as is the swimming pool to cool off. I'll be back!....:-)

Having stayed here in the past i knew what I was getting. Centrally located. Generally good all round. Rooms are clean, beds and linen comfy, basically all you need for the price. There is a very nice pool which we knew the kids would love however. ... Something has clearly been neglected regarding the chemical levels in the pool. Having... More

I chose this place based on recommendations however I was pretty disappointed. I thought that staff (not all) were very rude, they got incredibly defensive really quickly when a guest might ask them a question when it wasn't necessary, therefore I didn't feel they were approachable. I also felt my room was very dated. Be careful when washing items, ensure... More
