“Nice river view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

Room is quite comfortable. Nice river view of river. The garden and pool are the best of the hotel.
Breakfast line was ok.

Room Tip: Upstair have private balcony. Downstairs has no balcony.

On 27th January 2012 I was staying at this resort for a company function. Both a colleague and I had our rooms robbed while we were there. He lost a large sum of money in foreign currency I lost my money and my sapphire and diamond jewellery. The thief went through my purse and selected the currency they wanted.My colleague and I were each left with HKD 20. My colleague and I were staying at opposite ends of the resort. The police were involved and the hotel staff were helpful. I am not saying do not go but be aware that the detective said that door and balcony locks were of poor standard, the rooms do not have a safe so you will need to use the hotel reception safe.

Very nice hotel on the river. Grounds well kept and rooms neat and tidy. Scenic pool over looking the river. Whilst I did not use the spa, my travelling companions did and they were very happy with the service and the price (I think a little expensive but they were happy). The food is ok to good for some dishes. Prices for food are a little rich for the quality and the location, prices are nearly on par with Bangkok 4 to 5 star hotels. Rooms are tidy, little sparse but fine. We paid THB 1,750 per night for deluxe rooms, price not the cheapest for what you get but nice all the same. Obviously a popular hotel so they can charge a little more. Staff were very nice and helpful. We were there just for visiting the Kanchanaburi area so spent little time at the hotel other than sleeping and eating of an evening. Did not find too much close outside of the hotel but we did not go looking to far. If you want alternatives for eating of an evening then better to stay a little closer to the town of Kanchanaburi. The hotel is 20 or so minutes out of town. This is nice hotel and I would go back and spend a few days just relaxing at the hotel and not go anywhere.

There is only one English channel on the in-house television and this is a movie channel. I personally like to see the news in the morning from around the world so I did miss this at the hotel.

We decided to travel by the train from BKK, this proved to be a task to find the train to Kanchanaburi and we missed the departure and took a taxi to Nathom Pathom, THB 600 to get there. The train was 3rd class but was fine and you travel with locals and you can purchase food and drinks from vendors on the train. Train takes a little over 3 hours to get to Kanchanaburi.

At the station we got a local taxi to the hotel just THB 200. Through this driver we organised a local guy to take us to the tourist spots over two days. We had the driver for over 9 hours each day in a comfortable (new) vehicle (Camry first day and Fortunner second day) cost split between the three of us was only THB 1,900 per day. Driver was very safe and polite, his English was also ok so we could communicate. He did not mind if we lingered a little longer at one place than we had said, even when we changed the order of visiting he was ok with this also. Very helpful and accommodating. I would be happy to pass on his details if anyone would like to contact him.

Lots to see in Kanchanaburi..Tiger Temple..Hell Fire Pass..Erawan Falls..Bridge...Markets at Kanchanaburi...and lots more.

We were going to take the train back but changed this as we wanted to spend a little more time in the town of Kanchanaburi and the train was leaving at 2:45pm. Instead there are air conditioned buses back to Bangkok and they are very cheap THB 99, they said it would take two hours we found it was more like 2 hours and 45 minutes. The bus station is near to Pink Lao which is on the northern side of Bangkok. We arrived back on a Friday night so traffic was bad, it took another taxi ride to get back to Sukhumvit area (but only THB 160). The bus station is next to a shopping centre so there are plenty of local buses and taxis.

I stayed here as for one night as part of a cycling tour from Chiang Mai to Bangkok with SPICEROADS.
The hotel was evidently a popular with the business cleintele' as there were lots of business/professional staying at the hotel and the breakfast area was awash with suited residents. That said breakfast was good, and the eggs were cooked as you like them, with pastries for the continental lovers there was also traditional thai breakfast fairings.
The rooms were clean and well presented, however the bathroom was lacking some shelf space for your toiletries. The balcony of my twin room looked out over the pool area, which itself was plesant.
There is a quiet, well lit promenade at the back of the hotel that stretches along the river which is nice for a stroll. There are lots of mosquitos so beware.
Our small cycle group ate at the restaurant down by the river, where the staff were exceptional and very attentive. The food was also very delicious.
Free wi-fi for those with smartphones or laptops, as with all the hotels in Thailand.
We didnt travel out of the hotel so I could not comment on its proximity to the nearest town, but I believe it was 5km down the road..
All in all a pleasant stay at this hotel.
The only comment I could make about value for money is that I believe the hotel prices are much cheaper on Agodo, at a sminch of £38 a night.

The hotel is located in a calm stretch of the river, with well manicured gardens and a nice river-front promenade. Standard rooms are simple and clean. Indeed, value for money.

The breakfast is clearly focused on the Thai public, with lots of Thai food. There were only a few items that a foreigner would expect in an buffet breakfast.

Some negative points: shower was lukewarm to cold, bed-sheets and towels were not so new and had stains, our bathroom had a smelly water leakage, reception staff were confused and not so helpful.

The location is good if you have a car. The hotel is a few kilometers away from the touristy down-town (River Kwai Bridge area) and in the route to the main touristic attractions.
