If I could add an audio file to this review all you hear is the repetitive bass of the awful club underneath the hotel. As long as the club exists this will always be a crap hotel. Find anywhere else.

Stayed for a night whilst tour Kanchannaburi. Good selling point as free wifi in all rooms.

Good location and lots of road-side store in the evening selling good food.

Breakfast was average. Front desk staff very helpful and friendly.

This is an older hotel located on the main road running through Kanchanaburi. It is called River Kwai Hotel but you either need transportation of good walking shoes to get to the river.

Service was good but nothing special. The hotel is worn and in need of a serious facelift but the rate was commensurate with the quality. The room is big. The bed was comfortable and king size. A writing desk and easy chair are in the room for writing or computer work and relaxation.

I didn't eat in the hotel restaurant but outside in the parking lot is a great grill venue with a good selection of international foods. The also serve cold beer and provide music. Nice place for a dinner before going out for the evening or even if you just plan to hang out around the hotel.

There is a spa and nightclub at the hotel. I didn't try either. I noticed, though, some rooms in the front get the bass vibration from the club. In the rear you can hear the trains blowing their whistle as they are passing by.

There is some night life not too far from the hotel but it would be a good walk. Might be better to get transportation.

It was early in the morning when I checked out. I needed a ride to the train station. The concierge couldn't find anyone so he gave me a lift on his motorcycle.

I would stay here again but it wouldn't be my first choice. It was okay, nothing too bad but nothing too good either.

Room tip: take into consideration the disco and the train tracks when selecting a room.

Arguably, the hotel is a little shabby - but at the price that can be obtained by booking in advance or through various agents/websites, represents good value. It's a busy hotel. The restaurants do well - the new outdoor "House" looks good - and so does the disco - attracting lots of locals.

Don't expect a quiet "resort"!

The breakfast is worth having - a large buffet of Thai and some western dishes and the coffee surprisingly good. I enjoyed my stay and would certainly stay again - the only downside being it's location - away from the tourist areas - and a substantial walk to the Kwai Bridge and the War Cemetery.

On the plus side - if you have a car, there is adequate parking.

I didn't have a car - but I enjoyed the walks to the above mentioned and the night market at the nearby railway station - it's a real market, not a tourist trap!!

The staff are excellent - rooms clean and comfortable - what more can you want at a reasonable price?

Room tip: The railway runs at the rear of the hotel. A front room may avoid the early train!

I have read other traveller reviews of this hotel and consider the room quality comments are not justified. I booked a Studio S room via an agent and obtained a price some 1,000 baht less per night than advertised on the hotel website.

The room was top floor, large with views towards the mountains of Kanchanaburi, and of a standard good enough to rival any budget hotel chain such as PremierTravelInn/Travel Lodge.

The bed linen was of a good quality however the bed did appear to have plastic incontinence pads under the sheets! The bathroom evidently did not receive a refit when the bedroom was upgraded which is unfortunate but it worked and the shower was hot.

Breakfast was standard mass produced hotel buffet style. Edible but nothing to send a postcard home about.

The big downside to this hotel is the noise. I was top floor, opposite corner to a nearby nightclub and had my earplugs in. I could still not get to sleep. There are three late bars/clubs which surround the hotel. When one shuts, another opens and turns up the volume.

If it wasn’t for the noisy bars and clubs around the hotel I would stay here again. Instead I checked out and found another hotel.

The primary objective when choosing a hotel must surely be getting some quality sleep - you won't find it here.

Room tip: Don't choose a room here. Choose another hotel.
