“Not so good...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

The staff is great, but the rooms are not so good... the bathroom was dirty, the interior was old and not maintained. Unfortunately this is the best hotel in Amphawa. But i have to say, we had dinner in their restaurant and the red curry was fantastic!

We came to enjoy the Thai "Loi Kratong" Festival in Amphawa. (28.11.2012)
we arrived fro a two night stay at 7AM after a long Journey and were shown to our room at once... what luck what service!
The room was as we had read before on the small side but in this case ... how much room do you need to sleep? The amenities of the room as they should be.
After a rest we were assisted friendly and efficiently how best to enjoy the "Loi Kratong". If you have never seen the "Loi Kratong" display on the you have been missing something.
Our short stay was thoroughly enjoyable ... Breakfast / Restaurant OK
Excellent Shuttle Bus service!
A nice stay...thank you!

The hotel has bicycles for use by the guest ... take aride to town (short) and on the the historic King Rama ll Memorial Park just the other side of the Floating Market Canal.
AND of course the numerous floating markets...

Room Tip: I think the "normal" room are more or less all the same maybe a ;low room number such as 1...

Spent two nights here with spouse. Checked in Sunday and out on Tuesday. Took train to Mae Klong from Bangkok's Wong Wianyai station. Took tuk-tuk to Baan Amphawa Resort. Arrived about 12pm. Room wasn't ready. Left bags and took free hotel shuttle into Amphawa for the weekend floating market (Fri-Sunday). Spent afternoon there and returned at 7pm. Taken to Room #407 where our bags had already been delivered. Room was a handicap accessible room and large, but I'm 6'2" and the accessible features made me feel a bit like Robinson Caruso in the land of the Lilliputians. We asked to switch rooms. Were told we received that room because we booked on Agoda.com and were also told hotel was full. Gently pressed the matter and were soon escorted to Room #305. Room was slightly smaller than the first one, but at least everyone was a standard height.

Room had nice linens, king bed, hair dryer, 2 bottles of water daily, Vessel sink. Free wifi. Wash cloths. Shampoo only, no conditioner.

Hotel seems more of a convention hotel than guest resort as there were several large groups from Bangkok on Monday morning when we went for breakfast. Breakfast was served buffet style in the restaurant by the river.

Tuesday morning it seemed the hotel was nearly empty and breakfast was made to order in what looked like a conference room. Western, Asian or Continental Breakfast were the choices, plus fresh fruit. Prepared fresh, but seemed a little odd.

Hotel has 2 nice pools. One by the restaurant/river has fewer chairs than the one by reception. We hung out there for several hours and were the only ones in the pool. It was nice.

Prices for massages, etc seem over priced. A 1 hour massage was 2,000 Baht and in Amphawa the massage was 250 Baht.

My only real complaint was my umbrella was stolen from the box outisde our room where we're requested to put our umbrellas. When we brought this up to reception they weren't that concerned. We asked for a replacement and they tried to sell us one of theirs. Not the hotel's fault some other guest stole my umbrella, but a little empathy would have been nice.

Room Tip: Avoid #407, a handicap room

This is my 2nd time for stay Baan Amphawa Resort & Spa. The resort is located on the river which is good atmosphere in evening and morning. The room was nice , try to upgrade to deluxe room where located in upper floor of Thai House- good experience and facilities! This is a 4 star with 02 swimming pools, Spa and GYM. The best thing in this resort is facilities. They are very smart and pleased to assist you in any help. Even somebody's English is not well, but you can see their willing to help via their performance. Restaurant is good, Buffet Breakfast with choices. and good Menu for Lunch and Dinner. But if compare with a price. this is a bit pricy.

Overall, this is memorable experience for me at here.

Room Tip: Booked Deluxe room instead of superior room

We were only going to stay for 1 night but extended it for 2, good hotel and good location for Floating Markets, both Morning and Evening and will take you to both and pick you up.
The hotel itself is right on the river (you can go to the markets via the river at a cost), the room was big, clean and comfortable, breakfast was lots of good choices, had lunch by the pool which was very good, but the main thing about this hotel is the staff, all were fantastic,very helpful nothing was too much trouble for them, from Reception Staff to the Guys who took you to the markets and picked you up again and all in between.
I would have no hesitation in stopping at this hotel again if ever in the area.

we stayed in the hotel on 29th April and it was nice! lunch was nice service great, very professional.
we book a boat tour to amphawa and fire flies, very nice and we had the chance to donate to monks in the morning. only downside: the normal rooms are a bit simple for the price.

Because of river access I will go there again!

Room Tip: better take a bigger room, the standard or superior rooms are nothing special.

Stayed one night with the family. We were given an upgrade from a delux to one of the one bed villa. The room was clean and will decorated. Bed was good. All the staff were friendly and efficient. Food at the all day dining was quite good.

The only downside we experienced was the water. After a day out and coming back sweating, we were not able to have our shower as the water coming out of the tap was yellowish in colour....we have to let the water run for hours before we were able to use it.

The room rate was on the high side as well even compared to Bangkok hotel . . .
