We arrived at the bus station where we called Ploy for the free pick up service. We waited about 15 - 20 minutes. We had a upstairs tv room. Staff helped us with bringing the luggage to the room. Room was big and clean. Tours can be booked at the guest house which is in a street with bars, laundry service, drug store, supermarket, seven eleven, massage and restaurants. Within walking distance to the night market. Staff barely speaks English and didn't understand our question about what to do nearby the guest house. When we checked out, we've arranged a mini van to pick us up. So we told the staff that we were waiting for the mini bus. He thought that we wanted to go to the bus station and said 50 Baht. We had also stored our luggage behind the reception and I wanted to have my luggage. He didn't understand and I had to point to the back of the reception. Wifi is only available in the restaurant. So we had to google in the restaurant to find out that there is a night market nearby. We didn't use the pool but we've seen that you have to pay 20 Baht for a pool towel since a room towel is not allowed at the pool. There is actually not much to do in Kanchanaburi. I would actually recommend to take a day tour from Bangkok instead of going to Kanchanaburi. A lot of travel agencies around so we didn't booked a tour at the hotel.

This is a nice guesthouse located just off the main strip of Kanchanaburi. It is surrounded by bars, shops and restaurants.

The guesthouse has nice grounds and an amazing "infinity" pool overlooking the river. The rooms are spacious with an ensuite bathroom (with hot water).

Breakfast is included (toast & jam). If you like pancakes or eggs, they are available for a surcharge. All in all great value for money.

Staff doesn't speak a lot of English but are very friendly and helpfull.

Good value rooms, with complimentary breakfast: toast with jam and coffee and tea.
We stayed 3 nights in a double room with air-conditioning on the first floor.

The room was fine, with a large bathroom with hot water. Everything was clean, not only in the rooms but throughout the guesthouse.
Only drawback of the room is that it lacks proper ventilation. As a result, after we had taken a short shower the room was quite humid. Besides it rained during our stay and our clothes did not dry. More fresh air was needed, but it was not possible to keep the door open due to the mosquitoes.

The swimming pool is wonderful, with a view on the river. This is also the place where breakfast is served.

This guesthouse is situated right in the middle of the guesthouse area and so it’s a short walk to all the other restaurants. You can even walk to the bridge over the river Kwai, it takes only 20 minutes to half an hour.

the website made it sound like we'd have an outdoor shower, we didn't we have a couple of trees in the room, it was a nice room, but not such a big deal. it was clean, but the a/c had tons of dirt and so we kept sneezing throughout the night. the people aren't very friendly, they aren't unfriendly but you're basically invisible to them. the location was great, the breakfast was good - the pancakes were great, but the coffee left much to be desired.

We (wife, my parents and yours truly) stayed here for two nights to go to Hellfire Pass Memorial Museum and travel back from there via train over Bridge on the River Kwai. Room was up to Guesthouse standard and bed extremely comfortable. Infinity pool and dining area down by the river is the jewel in Ploy's crown. Staff were extremely helpful and organised a driver to take us up to Hellfire Pass and back to Nam Tok Station to catch train back to Kanchanaburi over the River Kwai. You won't be disappointed with Ploy if a great value Guesthouse is what your budget demands.

Room tip: Ask for a Garden Room behind reception.

We enjoyed our three night stay in a garden room. The guesthouse is located down a side road off the main strip. Surprisingly it was very quiet as the rooms are also set back from the river and the noise of the busy speed boats. There are lots of nice and secluded communal areas located on different levels with lovely views of the river. The restaurant/bar area also has a beautiful view and it was a lovely start to the day to sit and have breakfast looking at the river.

Our room was average in size and mostly taken up by the large bed built upon a wooden plinth, not ideal if you have any mobility problems. We had a television (with English speaking channels), a fridge, wardrobe and dressing table. The ensuite bathroom was however quite large. The 'garden view' consisted of a very small enclosed garden area which was 'OK' but by no means stunning. Our room was very clean with good quality bedding. It was cleaned every day and we were provided with fresh towels and sheets. There was also a free supply of drinking water available. The majority of staff could not speak good English but were very friendly and always polite.

Breakfast consisted of an endless supply of toast, marmalade and tea or coffee, and was more than adequate. My partner ordered bacon and eggs on one occasion for an extra charge and said it was satisfactory.

We would have no hesitation in staying here again.

We ate at the Thai restaurant located nearly opposite the guesthouse on 2 occasions. The western food was not so good but the Thai food was excellant.

Room tip: We stayed in a ground floor garden room. It was very peaceful.
