We booked this hotel the night before we wanted to stay and booked one room for 4 people (2 x adults, 2 x children). On arrival the owner told us the room was not suitable for 4 of us so gave us a second room to use for no extra money. We enjoyed our stay here, its in a lovely... More

Our family of four stayed in a triple room and added an extra bed. We arranged for the fourth person at the hotel (which turned out to be cheaper that adding an extra bed when you book on line). Unfortunately, our room was tucked away behind rooms in another building and it was right beside the area under construction (scaffolding... More

Stopped in May but only for 2 nights. Would definately stay again when we return. Good price, basic but clean poolside room, decent onsite resaurant and bar and not far away from the sights. Staff were very helpful.

Just as it says. Stayed in a river room for 400 Baht. States air con and free wifi. Wifi works as long as you're in just the right spot sitting right on top of the front desk. Air Con was feeble and basically just moved the air around. The walls are paper thin. The first couple of interactions with the... More

You will definitely think you're in Thailand there is a pool which is OK. It is quite clean, there have been lizards in the washroom but that's just normal for Thailand. They serve Canadian or western continental breakfast and lunch is also available. The staff is quite helpful and the even have a "security guard". You should exchange the money... More

This guesthouse is located within walking distance of the bridge over the river Kwai and the Chinese Temple. We stayed in a little bungalow next to the pool. It wasn't luxurious but everything was there (note that plastic cups are placed inside the fridge, we looked all over for them! :) ) and the airconditioning was very quiet! The pool... More

Room by the water, we had our own little porch with chairs and table. The bed was comfortable and the shower nice, but nothing fancy. Prices were ok, although it seemed like the staff did not believe we would pay after our stay. During breakfast on the last day of our stay we were asked/told to pay several times. When... More

The rooms are clean with mini fridge, safe and excellent aircon. Pool is a great place to cool down and relax. Water front views. Good food and free wifi in restaurant area. No wifi in our room though. Simple double room with aircon 360baht. Close to town nightlife and bridge over river Kwai.
