I stayed in River Guest House for 5 nights. I had a great experience. The huts are on top of the river like old Thai style, so it's a cool experience. They are very basic, but also very cheap. Because of it's location on the water there were some bugs at night, but that doesn't bother me. The owner was... More

Visited here a few days ago travelling with a small group of friends. Where do I start? The staff are super friendly including their 2 awesome dogs. We went with the double rooms with air con. I would highly recommend this as they most definitely have the most outstanding view. Swimming in the river was quite safe too. (Just watch... More

Been coming here for years, feels like home to me. Yes, the guesthouse is old, but for me that adds to the charm. For those who love a quiet spot on a house boat with stunning views and adorable staff.... come here!

I really mean view. Everytime I come to Kanchanaburi the first thing in my mind is a view from River guest house room's balcony. Every sunset I love to sit there with my enjoy. I feel very good there and good energy around there.

We stayed here for 4 nights in total sandwiched around a trip to Elephants World, and it was an experience! This was the first quintessentially Thai place we stayed in during our trip in Thailand. The location is stunning - huts built on stilts right onto the river. It had been rebuilt 6 years ago due to destruction caused by... More

Very nice people own this place, but it is leading to abandon (no services, woodwalk not really safe). That's too bad. The view is very nice and quiet, that's the best point. But you can find cheaper and better places around.

Yes, this guesthouse has been around for a long time and it is not "up to date" on all things interior wise. However, where it lacks in decor and/or modern fittings it makes up for in charm, natural beauty and friendliness. I stayed 1 month in the basic double room. For people who said the bathroom is dirty, its not... More

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!
