A very nice guesthouse with rooms on the water! The rooms are basic but nice. But the owner is very friendly! Even did our loundry properly! Really recommend this place for a stay in Kanchanaburi! The view is awesome and a cool experience to have a room on the river Kwai.

At first we took a room for 400 baht (10 euro). The room was very basic (which is not a problem for only 400 baht), but the toilet was a french toilet (hole in the ground), uncleaned filled with poop. After flushing it, we decided to ask for a different room and we ended up in a room for 250... More

We saw the reviews so were excited for our arrival at the river guest house, we had a massive shock. The photos must be old as the place seemed to be falling apart. We got shown a room thinking we'd give it a chance but even the man suggested going to one down the road instead. The air con didn't... More

This was probably our best accommodation in Thailand. Bungalows directly on the river, nice terrace with hammocks and great river view - this all only for 150B per night - that was great relax there. Also very friendly owner.

I stayed for two nights in this guesthouse, after having shopped around ca ten other guest houses. The location and the way the huts were placed on the water charmed me immediately. Very friendly owner, impressive how he organises everything by himself! The room (had one of the boats with aircon) were basic, but nicely decirated and clean. of course... More

We were greeted by warm smiles and the owners who have just taken over the guesthouse have been so helpful-nothing is too much trouble. We are staying in one of the new floating rooms with a fabulous balcony with a view.It's so... More

We found this on the internet and headed for it as it was on the river Kwai, we headed down some stairs to the river and the staff were friendly and very helpful. The rooms were upon viewing very basic and the on suite bathroom had a hole... More
