“Friendly, peaceful, relax traditional Thai House”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

The location of this resort was good by riverside and we can make offering to monk coming by little boat. The owner of the resort was very friendly and warm, and she helps us to prepare monk offering food, book Tuk Tuk. This is such a nice resort to stay for a couple of day, relaxing by the riverside. There is a beautiful garden in front of the resort. The breakfast prepared was good. Definitely this is the best stay in my entire Bangkok trip. I will highly recommend to all the tourist coming to Amphawa to stay here with quite affordable pricing.

My wife and I stayed one night here and couldn't be more satisfied. The Thai owner was so kind and helpful, the accommodation was spacious and clean, the location by the river front is amazing. One of the best places we stayed during our entire trip.

A friend and I stayed at Panviman for one night during a short weekend trip to Amphawa from Bangkok. We were looking for a quieter, more peaceful setting than Bangkok, and that is exactly what we found. The resort was easy to find, a short drive from the Amphawa Floating Market. It is located right by the river, with a beautiful garden out front and a nice view from our room. The room we stayed in was the green room; it was pretty basic, but clean and nicely decorated. Bed was fairly comfortable and the shower had good water pressure. The fridge was stocked with a good variety of drinks at a great price for a mini-bar. The staff was very attentive; they called us a tuk tuk to get to the market, refilled our coffee at breakfast, and even provided a late night snack of fresh guava. We enjoyed sitting out in the garden after breakfast, and taking a stroll around the area. The market itself was great, mostly Thai domestic tourists. We also took a boat tour to see the fireflies - it was very nice being on the river at night! I would return to Amphawa and the Panviman.

The location of this resort was great and secretive, with the garden facing the river bank. The resort is privately run by a wonderful thai lady. She was very friendly and provided awesome advices. Check-in was simple and fast. There was a welcome floral drink and coconut jelly dessert.

Booked the "Pink" room. The bed was big with basic necessities provided. There are also many options of drinks to choose from in the fridge at a crazily cheap price. Bathroom are great too.

Breakfast was cooked on the spot upon arrival. So, it was fresh and hot for me. Breakfast provided are American Breakfast and simple thai porridge with chicken. Overall, it was great.

We had stayed in both the room downstairs and the 3 bedroom suite upstairs. I personally prefer the 3 bedroom suite because of the privacy and great view at the balcony. It is really value for money if you are going in group of friends or family gathering.

The lady owner gave us good advise on the boat charter to the floating market and fireflies viewing at night. The seafood restaurant that she suggested us to try at Don Hoi Lot served very fresh seafood at reasonable price. Accurate information regarding the train schedule at the Maeklong Railway Market was provided upon arrival and that saved us a lot of time.

The King Rama Park was about 15 minutes walk from the resort. We rented bicycles at the park and ride with our kids sitting behind. We had a great time there!

The staff were really helpful. This resort is nearly perfect. The minor issue that we faced was there are some mosquitoes in our rooms.

We did not stay at the Riverside but at the Panviman Garden Resort that is their sister hotel and about 100 meters down the road. It is in the same family ownership and both places have about 8 rooms. Guests at both places have their breakfast at the Riverside on the banks of the River. It is worth noting that each place is separately bookable on Agoda for e.g. with the Garden resort slightly cheaper.
The rooms are modern, clean and tidy and the staff are all exceptionally friendly and kind. They frequently offer guests free fruit or ice cream and are always smiling. Their English is far from perfect but it is good enough to help you with advice. Breakfast is copious but the American breakfast is not great but you will not leave feeling hungry! The location is in a quiet spot not too far from the river and only a ten minute walk from town and the floating market. It is a very pleasant place to spend a few days. There are two free bikes available that allow you to see the neighbouring fruit orchards and khlongs.
We would recommend both the hotel and area for a peaceful break outside of Bangkok.
It is worth coming to amphawa by train to see the maekhlong market. A memorable train ride that takes a long time but is worth it. We came back to Bangkok by a super fast and cheap mini van service from amphawa that was also excellent.

Room Tip: The downstairs rooms are bigger and only marginally more expensive.

The location is great, with the back garden on the banks of the river, where you can seat, relax, and experience great sunsets, with nice views over the river. Very clean, simple but comfortable. The guesthouse is run by a Thai family, but only one of the girls speaks reasonably well English. They make every effort to please you and to make sure you're well and satisfied.
It is located within a walking distance from the Amphawa Weekend Floating Market (10 to 15 minutes walk), but the staff can call a tuk-tuk if you want to. On weekends it's full, so book in advance if you want to see the market.
