The hotel is can not be reached by car. They have a dock to leave your vehicle & you take a boat to the hotel dock. From the dock you have to walk up hill for about 300 feet. I know your wondering about your luggage & if you can manage it. You can because the hotel has it put... More

I stayed here meeting with friends, From the moment I arrived I was very unimpressed. I have had better service in a cheap guesthouse than i got here for 3 times the price, upon arrival there was no bell boy to assist with the bags and the reception staff seemed to be bothered by my presence. The hotel is completely... More

We stayed in a family room with 3 single beds - great as our 10 year old needs her own bed. Good sized room with large tv and plenty of storage space for baggage. No coffee making facilities in the room, but the breakfast is ample. Swimming pool good size, comfortable sun loungers.

My boyfriend and I stayed here from January 5th-8th, 2016. I gave this hotel 2 stars because it is in need of major renovations. It is not as disgusting as come people say, but yes you see a lot of tropical cockroaches (we caught 2 in our room in 3 days) and the bed sheets are very worn out, the... More

We have stayed at this hotel many times - in fact almost from when it first opened when it was the only proper hotel in town. It has had its up and downs over the years. However this visit really was disappointing. Started off badly - no one at the door, front desk staff OK but no one to take... More

Came to the hotel, and from the pictures online it looked pretty good. We came there and the rooms were really old and worn out. Not really pleasant. The bathroom was old and the bathtub looked disgusting, but not because of the cleaning but because it was old. Pool area was really good and the breakfast was also not to... More

We arrived on bus and walked to our hotel. It was only a short distance from the station. The check in was pretty much straight forward but when we got to the elevator there was a sign saying due to a pest problem everyone had to leave their rooms for an hour or two which was a bit worrying but...

River Kwai hotel at Kanchanaburi. Thai style hotel at middle of Kanchanaburi. Rooms ok and clean. Nice swimming pool at back yard. Value good. Quite good asian style breakfast. Parking for motorbikes and cars. Some restaurants nearby. About 10minutes walk to river.
