I picked this guest house because of their traditional Thai bungalows, by the river! and they are indeed beautiful and a refreshing view from any other guesthouse.
The room is pretty basic but such a good value, the four of us stayed in a room with a double bed and two single beds (2rooms with 2 private bathrooms) for ny 1000b.
There are many places you can sit and lounge around, the view down near the river is quiet good and the guesthouse have many seating areas. Breakfast are inexpensive starting from 60b, not included with the room price.
To get around is quite easy, you can walk for 15mins to the War Cemetery and the Bridge, yet I think location does not really matter as Kanchanaburi is quite a bit of a stretch for walking on foot. Best to get a songtaew/motor taxi or rent a bicycle, which you can do just in front of the guesthouse.
Towels are provided, but toilettries meant tiny bar of soap that won't last one day so remember to bring your own.
The guesthouse is beside the river and swampy area with many trees and a garden, meaning there are mosquitoes. But applying mosquito repellent is a smalk price to pay to relax in this pretty guesthouse.
The surrounding is quite and I had a really really good night sleep!
The minus would be no working hot shower at the time (or maybe I just didnt know how to turn it on, so make sure say something to the owner!)
Suffice to say, I like this guesthouse for its beautiful Thai traditional bungalows and i expensive room fee, but you can get a little more comfortable one around town for a cheaper price.
