We took a room for two person and pay 800 baht. The room was basic with only a bed, toilet and cold shower. The room was full of dust, spiderwebs and cockroaches. This is the worst guesthouse we've ever had and we didnt sleep at all that night. Next day we found another guesthouse, about 300 m far from this... More

Considering the location which is excellent, and the views, amazing, and the price 450B A/C with bathroom, rustic is the kindest way to describe this G/H if you want everything perfect expect to pay double. You get what you pay for!

While I cannot say for 8$ this was a bad place it is only in comparison to what you can get at this cost in Kanchanaburi which makes this a let down. I made my first ever pre-booking for a night before arriving thinking I would have difficulty in finding a place upon arrival...I wish I could get my money... More

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.

If you want to go for a swim, the water is clean and totaly environmental friendly. I totally enjoyed chilling in my hamac on my balcony, watching the... More

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
