Super cute little room on stilts. We stayed in the 3 person room. Your right above the water and have your own little balcony overlooking it all. Best part was the lovely little restaurant directly opposite the guesthouse. Only 2 small tables but they did the best street food and ice coffee for dirt cheap! Rooms - Lovely calm setting...

We had dinner at the Blue Star on the recommendation of fellow travelers who were staying there. It was a nice quiet setting. We ordered fried mixed vegetables & fried rice with chicken. Both dishes were tasty but not huge portions. The mixed fruit shake was delicious.

We stayed there for 2 nights initially and ended up booking additional two because this place was so lovely. Very clean, new rooms, comfy beds and nice bathrooms! Staff was very helpful and even the garden is so well looked after. Great location too! The only thing to look out for (and Im sure this has nothing to do with...

The rooms are very clean. The place is beautiful. The staff is friendly. Get a room facing the river and watch the bats at night. Only drawback is that you can hear the karaoke boats for a couple hours each night, not a deal breaker though.

I just re-visited this nice guesthouse/hotel for a four week stay, and I enjoyed every minute. They have rooms at different standards and prices - but all nice and clean... a few rooms even of hotel standards - IMHO. I'm a male aged 70+, and I stayed for four weeks in a room with double bed, own modern toilet and...

This place is a lovely little guesthouse. We stayed in one of the little cottages down from the reception for 200baht a night. They are a little unloved but they are a very good price for what you get. They have self flush toilets and showers as well as only a fan in the room. Be careful of the nets...

Nice location, staff is friendly and the bungalowa are cosy. The WiFi is working only next to recepcion, hot shower, very good price - quality ratio. It's better to make reservation. We have been twice there. It's good to take local train to get there.

We stayed in one of the "regular" rooms in Blue Star, but they also have very nice bungalows IN/ON the river. Beware of mosquitoes though!! Very relaxing place to spend a few nights and make a trip to the River Kwai bridge.

Lovely family run rooms at really reasonable price. You get what you pay for and the room we stayed in was 350baht (split between two of us only 125 each!) and we had a great nights sleep. Very near to local sighs and we hired bikes next door for 50 baht a day. Really sweet staff and nice food for...
