Clean rooms. Good location right off the main road. We stayed in the rooms near the water they were very quiet. Rooms have air-conditioning, bathrooms, comfortable beds and no TV. WiFi is also available. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Food was great at the restaurant. We hired scooter's through them with no problems.

It's a guesthouse with good location to visit the tourist stuff and nightmarket. The bungalow we had we would recommend. The rooms at the pool are noisy. The breakfast is fine. It's nice to have a pool for some resting moments. In the morning lot of noise from building site and the staff at restaurant that start at 6:00.

I wouldn't stay at this guest house for at least another 6 months as they are building a hotel right in the middle of the bungalow complex and the noise and dust is horrendous, morning until night.....Stay well clear!

We reserved this place online due to the pool they had. When we were walking down the road to their property they were calling out at us to stay there and sitting around the restaurant. When we walked to the reception area the staff slowly came over to check us in. We were asked to pay there an then but...

Small overpriced room, overpriced food, noisy, and tired grumpy staff. There is construction of a new building so sitting by the pool all you hear is hammering and sawing. The food is two or three times as much as Street food and half the taste.

My husband, girlfriend and I stayed here for two nights and enjoyed this hotel very much! It's centrally located and within walking distance to a lot of restaurants. We stayed in room B-12 which was large with a very comfortable twin and king size bed. The a/c worked great, bathroom was large and our fridge come with free water and...

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...

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...
