          lovely peaceful place with private river view”

          Highly recommend! I planed one night to stay over in Kanchanaburi and extended to two nights partly for this beautiful riverfront guesthouse. good location: a few minutes walk from Railway station 'River Kwai Bridge' good setup: a very lovely small garden facing taken good care by the stuff here; and a few patio in the river front. I come to sit on the bench both mornings to enjoy my breakfast and around sunset time to cool out and also watch a pair of boats coming by. The owner family are friendly and helpful. They have bike to rent and can arrange to book tickets for you. I will choose this place again if i ever visit back Kanchanaburi.

          Very nice little place!”

          We booked a standard room on Agoda for 3 nights. This was a good stay! The bungalow is very simple, with limited furniture. But the bed is good, the shower is hot and the room very clean. Everything we needed! The guesthouse is nicely maintained, by the river Kwaï, and has its charm. No breakfast at Bambooya but there is an excellent and pretty inexpensive restaurant next door (at the Bamboo House). We found the location perfect, being at a walking distance to the River Kwaï bridge as well as the ‘international area’ of town where it proved very easy to book car and scooter during our stay in Kanchanaburi and area. A very good choice! We will come back!

          After the 3 hour train ride from Bangkok which I doubt I’ll do again when it’s 100 degrees it was a relief that bambooya was close to the bridge station.. Staff very nice and chilled... the bed was the most comfortable I’d slept in for a while in Thailand.. food was ok little small portions but cheap... but walk out and turn right and a few yards up on the right is an amazing restaurant called Kanburi and the selection and food was delicious!!

          Great location and value”

          + close to bridge, museum and bridge station. Lovely garden by river. Clean enough. Cheapish. - staff rather indifferent, small room, no fridge or kettle. Fine for a night or two.

          Good price and view, but difficult to go out”

          It's difficult to walk out to the main street as there were many street dogs and not enough light. Not much service here and lots of mosquitos. The internet was good. I chose the room with river view (glass room) was great.

          Stunning and scenic”

          Location, views, friendly and helpful staff

          This was the perfect antidote after a few days in Bangkok. We originally booked 1 night but were so bowled over on arrival we booked another night! Beautiful and scenic location overlooking the River Kwai, just a 10 minute walk to the Bridge over the River Kwai and WW2 museums. The staff at Bambooya couldn't have been more helpful and gave us maps and bus routes and times. There are also bicycles and mopeds available to hire. The bungalows are clean, modern and large, all have balconies which overlook the river and are lovely to have breakfast on. We took a bus to the Erawan Waterfalls which is a short journey away from Kanchanaburi (approx 2 hrs) - highly recommended but be warned - go early to avoid the throngs of crowds! Would definitely stay here again,

          A great budget hotel”

          Location, friendly staff and a clean comfortable room.

          The Bambooya is a budget hotel but is in a great location near to the river and only a few minutes walk from the river Kwai bridge. The rooms are small but very clean and comfortable with good air con and most importantly a fast and free wi-fi. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Easy parking facilities next to the hotel. The breakfast is basic but good and a reasonable price. Overall i would certainly recommend especially at a price of @ 500 baht a night.

          Great, central location”

          Loved Bambooya. Was a little doubtful at first because the faculties are a little old, but it’s so conveniently located - close to the War memorial and Deathrail bridge. It was also not far from shops, restaurants, and bars. The staff were amazing; they are all so friendly, they have pet rabbits and let you play with them, and when it was time to leave they organised a van back to Bangkok for me. The environment is great; right on the river (but due to the season, it wasn’t high enough to swim in) but had excellent views of the River Kwai, and the garden is nice too. It’s a quiet place to stay. There are only six units.

          River view, peaceful location, cozy room

          The rooms were very nice and had great wifi and a/c. Bambooya is close to the river Kwai bridge but a bit far from most of the restaurants and nightlife. I rented a bicycle for 50 baht per day and it was a great idea. Bambooya is peaceful and away from the noise of the city.
