            Beautiful river view”

            We stayed here for one night and at first appearances were shocked because they are doing some renovations in the front of the building. However don’t let this taint your view. The rooms were very good and the river view was stunning. The AirCon and wifi is good and the bed was comfortable. It’s close to the main town and found everything was walkable or a quick bike ride. Definitely recommend

            Almost everything you want and for such a cheap price ”

            For the price you certainly can't complain, WiFi, aircon, stunning river views, fridge, safe..... Even a nice cheap breakfast option. Everything was going so well until I came back after a day out and found the room hadn't been touched. I'm not bothered about towel changing daily or even bed being made to be honest, but I'm surprised northing was done if I'm honest. Maybe it was an oversight today. I guess I'll never know.

            One of the value for money riverside accommodation. Loved our stay at this guesthouse. We asked for a corner room facing the unobstructed River Kwai. Clean room and bathroom, king-size bed, fridge with bottled water, TV, balcony and close to many eateries, laundrettes, train station, museum, cemetery, etc. Recommended!

            Beutiful locatiotion, and not expensive. Staff are helpful and friendly . However , it takes bit of walk to shops and market. I wish they stock up some snack and more varity types of drink for guests, in case guests get hungry at night.

            Pay the extra for the superior room ”

            I stayed in a superior room for two nights before heading off for a night in Erawan and came back for one night. I thought I'd stay in a standard room as its only one night and I want fussed about the river view. The standard room is not just a superior room without the view. It's far smaller, has no safe and was in desperate need of an update. It may have been clean but felt very dirty. Pay the extra and go for a superior room. Staff were very nice and very friendly.

            Value for money - yes, but would have chosen another place to stay”

            The place is definitely a guesthouse, not a hotel. It's like sleeping at your great aunt. It's relatively clean, but does not have white linnen or bed covers (just a washable blanket). Some ants in the toilet. The walls seem to be from paper - you can hear everything. Of course, there is not much to expect for $25, but just bear this in mind. Also, having been there, we would rather have stayed around the bridge - much nicer area with bars, street markets etc. This place is close to the station though.

            i like the location but the room was very small , tv did not work , same as the safety box ( hopefully the staff is nice and they gave us another safety and tv ) , the wifi is very very bad , so the price compared with another hotel is too too high
