“Amazing location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2013

For such a small price, you can have a private floating room on the river Kwai! What more could you ask for really! It even comes with air conditioning and your own back veranda, from which you get an amazing sunset and views of the river and some monuments further downstream. Despite the amenities not being modern, it was the most amazing place we stayed in Asia simply for the views. Our cabin was one of the furthest out into the water, so our view wasn't blocked by other cabins. I definitely intend to stay here again on my next visit to kanchanaburi

I cannot remember every staying somewhere so unique, awe inspiring, and relaxing as this hotel. We stayed on one of the floating bungalows one night and then in one of the lodges the second. The rooms are typical of Thailand; the toilets were pretty poor - although Thai piping is smaller than Western piping anyway so this is expected - and the rooms were simple. Nothing fancy, just plain value.

You are paying for an experience, not a luxury apartment. If you travel to Thailand for cheap luxury hotels, jacuzzi spa's, and fine dining, then stay in Bangkok or travel down to Phucket. You might be forgoing the true culture and spirit of Thailand, but if that's what your about then go elsewhere (if that is you then I truly pity you). I however am looking to experience true Thailand; quirky and simple.

That epitomises this hotel; quirky and simple. The rooms aren't spotless, the beds don't feature Egyptian cotton, the rooms are not huge, but it is cheap, certainly cheerful, and the food is well cooked and presented to you by typically friendly Thai owners.

Please visit this hotel.

Room Tip: Stay on the bungalows. If you don't mind lizards (they generally stay out of the rooms and on th...

The location on the raft is great, but the rooms are dark and not very clean. The staff isn't really nice.
However, the breakfast is good, and the view is nice. It's also close to everything in kanchanaburi.

The additional amount to upgrade to a room with aircon on a houseboat was well worth it as an oasis of cool during the hot Thailand summer. Fantastic location on the river. Friendly accommodating staff. Meals are good value too.

Found this guesthouse as one of the first ones that were free. The bamboo room price was OK - but for just 50 Baht more, as we found out later, you can have hot water in the other hostels. But with fan it was 200 or 250 Baht, so quite OK price (with hot water it was 350; the rooms at the riverside were around 500+).

As for the rooms, they were perfectly acceptable for the price, though we also saw some geckos (but didn't mind them). The rooms and beds were quite clean, the staff was nice to us - and also the breakfasts were fine. Fortunately, no karaoke sessions occured on the river, because the rooms have poor sounds insulation... The wifi was there - we even got the signal at the room.

Clean and nice. Very helpful price. Good location to get the bridge on Kwai river - about 10 minute walk. Room was really cheap. We spend there nice 2 days. Dont forget to go to Erewan waterfalls - great views.

We had a good room with riverside veranda. Hot shower with fresh towels (although no soap).
The room was clean enough but would never in a good homes competition! The breakfast was adequate...nothing special. What spoilt the whole experience was the miserable staff who could not do less for you. Unlike other places we have stayed the staff seemed to find us a bit of an inconvenience and this meant we only had breakfast there before going out. We never used their bar or communal areas.
