Great guesthouse with restaurant & travel centre on site. Reasonable prices, same as other places down the street. Offers laundry services, scooter rent, cooking classes, tours & transport. The pool and the terrace with view on the river Kwai are just perfect. However, they are expanding quite a bit, which might make it crowded in the future. 4/5 would Pong... More

I originally stayed at Pong Phen in 2009, on the recommendation from a friend. He didn't lead me astray. I come to Kanchanaburi every year for our Australian War Remembrance Ceremony - ANZAC Day, on the 25th of April. And, of course, stay at this Guesthouse, along with many other like-minded people, who have become good friends from this important... More

The location, the staff, the on-site restaurant, and all the services offered by this guesthouse makes it second to none in Kanchanaburi. I stay here all the time -- several times per year -- and there's no other place I'd rather stay. Book your rooms early! They stay full!

This is always the first place I call for accommodation when visiting Kanchanaburi, I just love the place. Very well located, within walking distance to all the best restaurants and bars in town, it is even a nice stroll to the Bridge over the River Kwai in the evening and once there, you can catch a boat taxi back to...
