I spent one night at the Felix, arriving late to Kanchanaburi and not knowing where to sleep.
It's a big, expansive hotel with many different facilities and a bit older in the decor, but very well maintained and well run with excellent friendly staff. Some big places which cater mostly to tour groups tend to be lacking on the service/quality side, but I found the Felix not to have that problem.
From checkin to restaurant service to the bell boys everyone was welcoming, friendly, and went out of their way to please.
The room I had was with river view and a nice terrace. Well maintained and clean.
Breakfast buffet had great variety and was very good with both western and asian specialties.
Only one suggestion - get some western TV channels. There was only one English movie channel which shut off around 11pm. Otherwise a nice, relaxing experience.
The grounds are very nicely kept too - green tropical garden views from just about every window.
The pool is also well kept and almost olympic size, with a view overlooking the river.
All in all, it was a good pick for a short trip. Hasslefree, friendly, and relaxing
