      Exactly what we wanted. A Thai medium range hotel. One room in our party had not been cleaned properly - floor messy and used towel still in there but quickly fixed. The staff put us all in the wrong rooms but quickly realised and moved us to better rooms. All good after that. Great pillows - so soft. Breakfast was as expected from a hotel of this class and price range. I would use it again for similar trips.

      A very nice, clean hotel. The rooms were immaculate, The air-conditioning worked great, no problem at all with the Wi-Fi, all very important to me. I did think they could work on the pool area a little more as the water didn’t seem crystal clear. The water is pretty deep, starting at about 4 feet on the shallow end and up to 10 feet in the deep end. The exercise room also could use some work as some of the machines did not work properly. The breakfast buffet was average. All in all a nice hotel which was walking distance to the war cemetery, food and shopping.

      Great location”

      Can't find anything important to complain about. Everything was satisfactory, comfortable beds, tasty breakfast buffet, good parking and excellent location. TV too small considering the size of the room.

      Old hotel”

      Old hotel. Room was clean and pillows were awesome. We had cocroach in our Room, furniture look very old also. In our date, there were only few people in hotel, it looks little bit like horror movie shining - bit hotel without people. Pool was big and deep Also, but little bit dirty and old. Everything around pool looks like it wasnt used very very long time, dirty and damaged. Overall I think there are better Choices in kanachanaburi than this. It's price for what you get.
