I stayed at Pong Phen on several occasions whilst working in the nearby area. There is a good selection of rooms, and even the cheapest ones (400 Baht) are very decent. The staff are both friendly and helpful, and several speak very good English. I would thoroughly recommend this place to backpackers, and to anyone else looking for a cheap... More

The setting is great, overlooking the river- really beautiful and the pool is good. My boyfriend was bitten all over his body though by bed bugs and it's really affected our trip so I wouldn't recommend staying here if you are susceptible to getting bitten by bed bugs as our mattresses were infested with the creatures. I believe the whole... More

We stayed in a family room with 5 - added two beds to fit us all in. The airco was not really fit for the entire big room, and the added beds were very thin mattresses on wooden boards. The bathroom was very spacious too. Wifi available for free and working :) Friendly and helpful staff. Pool is quite nice... More

We stayed here for three nights on our trip around Thailand, and were very impressed with the service, quality and value. The location is great, set just back from the main tourist area in Kanchanaburi, and the clean swimming pool was in the sun every time we went for a dip. We had a first floor room in the guesthouse... More

It was ok. Nothing special or writing home about. The pool was great but the staff at the restaurant weren't very attentive. I'd recommend eating elsewhere, I did. But as for the room I stayed in the air con worked, it was a decent size, it had a comfy bed so it was a good value for a mere 500... More

I found this place by chance and was impressed with the value if affored. Mine was one of the cheaper rooms but was clean and comfortable. The pool area was a haven of peace with great river views and the meals available were well priced and tasty. For my $21.00 I was more than happy. Had I been sharing a... More

We stumbled upon Pong Phen by accident & expected the price to be a lot higher than we paid! We literally thought we were in heaven after some backpackers/b and bs we had been to! The pool was a massive bonus as was the free wifi and aircon! We wanted to stay longer but unfortunately they were full :( Definitely... More

Stayed 3 nights in the family room. Excellent value with great air con and fridge. The staff were very accommodating, putting an extra bed in the room at minimal cost. Food is a fair price for what they offer, though there are much cheaper options if you are after good genuine Thai food.

Just stopping off for one night, took an air con room for 400B. Room itself was a bit of a coffin and the air con unit didn't work as anything other than a fan. If I was staying longer I'd complain however I was up and out early the next day. Place has got a certain amount of character, can... More
