“Great Value, Location and Service”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Oddly enough, I couldn't this place right away, but once I did it seemed totally obvious. It's right in the middle of town. There are a few well situated restaurant tables overlooking the main street of Kanchanaburi, but otherwise sports a fairly plain exterior. My room was spacious, clean and quiet. The bed was pretty comfortable and softer than the average concrete slab so ubiquitous in this part of the world. The staff were friendly and super helpful in arranging excursions to Erewan Falls, Death Railway Museum and other places. They also got me good cheap transport back to Bangkok on short notice. I thought this hotel was terrific value for the money and I would definitely stay there again.

First, i would like to help by informing people that there is no free breakfast here.(Their nice Snooker Restaurant serves food, though) Second is though the name is Tara we spent 10 minutes trying to tell my tuk tuk guy the name of the hotel and as there is no R alphabet in the thai language he wouldn't understand till I uttered the name TALA! (The nearest phonetic alphabet to sound like R)Its a family run business where all the members help.
Its only five minutes by tuk tuk from the bus station.We were very impressed with the big rooms, shower, Big LED TV,Cleanliness,Wi fi,swimming pool,m western toilets, soft beds and location and the reasonable costing laundry and the very helpful ANN. KTC and Tara B and B and Tara Rooms(Rafts) are owned by the same family.They arranged a taxi for us at a reasonable rate for seeing Tiger Temple and Erawan Waterfalls and also an AC MINI VAN to go to Ayuthayya.I also won't forget Uncle Don who took us around the cemetries and the Bridge in his motorcycle taxi at a reasonable rate.There is a 7 11 on the same road.I would love to stay here again.

If the star rating is putting you off- please ignore it! I really don't understand how this isn't at least a 3* place!

Firstly- the pool is just lovely! All you can hear while in it is the birds and it's right next to the river.
We stayed in a private en suite room for 700 baht a night (incredible value) - we've been travelling for 2 months, often in 3* and 4* places, and this is one of the biggest rooms we've encountered! The bed was SOFT! Shocker for Thailand where all beds are notoriously hard...
Location is a 10 min walk from train station (though didn't use it) and is on one of the busiest 'nightlife' roads in Kanchanaburi (it's not an amazing party scene, but there are pleeeenty of bars and restaurants on the road, as well as a Tesco Locus and 7/11 within a few minutes walk)
We ate quite a lot at the hotel's restaurant- they're quite slow to bring food but have a huge range: western options like steaks and chips, pasta, burgers; many Thai dishes, desserts and fantastic smoothies/lassi drinks! I fell in love with these here! Food is all decently priced and pretty good :)
Staff are all helpful and friendly; we were lucky enough to be here while a litter of kittens were roaming around which was great fun- they're incredibly affectionate and would curl up on our laps while we waited for food!
Rooms are quiet, no noise disturbances. Mini fridge buzzed sometimes but as we only kept drinks in it we just unplugged it at night.
The only downsides to this place were that the hot water was a bit flakey (but it's a hot country so doesn't really matter!) and that the key was welded to the card for the electricity slot, so you couldn't leave things charging while you left the room.
Overall we had a fantastic stay- we even extended our stay here by several nights with really short notice- not many guests staying here (usually had pool to ourselves- plenty of comfy loungers and umbrellas though)
One of the most memorable stays among many- perhaps as we had such low expectations of a 1* and were so pleasantly surprised! :)

Room Tip: No lift but only two floors.

We stayed here for two nights for the Anzac parades. There were three couples one of which had a toddler. We arrived and were impressed with the swift check in straight to our rooms and the toddler had a full size single bed. Great value with an excellent comfy bed, plenty of shower gel, complimentary water and a TV with western channels. We had snacks in the bar/restaurant which ere good and the beer was cold and reasonably priced. Well done Tara and so much better than Noble Nights where we stayed before. We will definitely be staying with you for Remembrance in November.

My mom and I stayed here for 4 nights while traveling around Kanchanaburi. Tara Bed is a great deal for the price. The room was basic and slightly worn, but clean. The air con worked well, the shower pressure was good, and the staff was helpful. The room was relatively quiet with no noise from the street, although one of the nights we did hear some fellow guests being rather loud - the walls are on the thin side. We did not get breakfast included, but choose to have breakfast there one day. Eggs were fine but the coffee was dreadful. Dinner was much better - good noodle dishes and cocktails. There is a pool available to use, although we did not check it out. The location is great, with tons of bars and restaurants nearby. It was a 15 minute walk to the Bridge, and there were plenty of taxis around if you didn't feel like walking. If you're looking for a no frills bargain, this is a solid choice.

Stayed in a double superior ground floor room for two nights mid week. Rooms clean and spacious. The problem with my room is that it backed onto a walkway that was the after hours entrance for both my hotel and another backpackers next door. Drunken, noisy backpackers fighting and Thai staff screeching resulted in no sleep. Very frustrating.

Having been to Kanchanaburi a few times Tara by far has the best to offer at a great price! The beds are incredible and the place is really clean. The staff have always been really friendly and helpful and the use of the pool is definitely a massive bonus. It is in a great location for visiting the bars on the main tourist strip as well as walking down to the Bridge over the River Kwai.
