beautiful river and nature view. wonderfu lacal
raft style room right on the river, great view, totally in touch with nature but far out from the city
We had a very nice stay. we loved the raft room with very beautiful view, breath taking. But the main area should be the river terrace but it was abit small and connected openly to other rooms next to eite each other. no privacy. great friendly staff. it's located quite far out.

Won't win awards, but it was a nice place to stay
River raft rooms are relaxing
We stayed in a river raft room. The room itself was pretty basic, but the whole point of a raft room is sitting on the balcony and relaxing next to the water. This stretch of the river is very quiet and there are no worries about party boats passing by. The resort itself is quite far out of town and not really near anything, so its best to only stay here if you have a car. The only restaurant nearby is in the hotel, where the food is decent enough. Staff were generally friendly and unobtrusive. The hotel doesn't offer any booking services for activites in the area, so you are on your own to arrange those elsewhere.

Raft was a good experience
Big garden with butterflies
the hotel has beautiful surroundings, large garden with the peaceful athmosfare. the staff were very kindly and helpful although they didn't speak english. we acted and used google translator and got what we wanted. a little pool was enough and in there was a refreshing temperature, nearly cold. rafts were ok and staying there was relaxing, but they didn't clean the rooms every day. we were there three nights and we got only once two bottles of drinking water. the breakfast was puffet and tasty when the hotel was full.

Great Location but poor food
Location, setting
The setting of the hotel is lovely although it is quite hard to find. The food however is very poor and the breakfast was a disgrace. We booked a raft room for 3 nights but after 1 night changed rooms as the raft rooms are very basic indeed and with a child are far too small. Overall whilst the setting is idyllic I would not recommend this hotel for a stay as there are a host of resorts around Kanchanaburi. In addition the hotel is a good 30 minute drive from the city.

Stunning riverside garden setting
Centerally located for nearby sites
Botanic rooms are modern and well equipped. The garden setting is beautiful and peaceful. It is probably one of the best values in the area. Unfortunately you almost need your own transport to get to the place and the local sites but worth it. Restaurant made great breakfast and dinners. Highly recommended. Great staff.

lovely hotel with real experience of water
quiet hotel with beatiful setting
the hotel is in a green surrounding with small individual houses or raft (we were on the raft). the room was basic but functional the best way to enjoy is to sit outside on the balcony and enjoy looking at the river. breakfast choice not many but acceptable, the hotel is quite far from kanchanaburi town center but nearer to the train stop to go to waterfall and the famouse rail bridge. staff are helpful and nice

My favorite hotel in Kanchanaburi
Magnificent view, cannot be closer to river Kwai
This was my second time to stay at Botanic. I really love the raft room that is buit on the raft floating in River Kwai Noi.It was such a beautiful moment for me to just watch the river flowing in front of my eyes. Restaurant sits on the top of the cliff so the view from there was great. If possible I want to visit this hotel every month just in order to run away from the hustle of Bangkok...

Hôtel sans charme
Proximité de la rivière.
Une grosse déception quand à la situation géographique de cette hôtel! Vous indiquiez sur votre site "en centre ville" alors que cette hôtel se trouve à 30 km du centre ville et 40 mn en taxi pour un tarif de 600 bath! Arrivée sur place l'accueil n'est pas plus chaleureux que la proximité du centre ville indiqué sur votre site! Il y avait 3 mini bus sur place mais seulement un chauffeur à disposition qui a refusé de nous conduir en ville à la demande de la responsable de l'hôtel. ( inadmissible ). Je ne peux donc plus faire aucune confiance aux commentaires farfelus indiqués sur vos hôtels selectionés ( les mêmes déboires sont arrivés à des amis en Thaïlande). Je passerai maintenant par le site booking qui me semble plus sérieux.

Joli hotel pres de la rivière
Très calme et reposant
la liaison de réservation avec Agoda ne fonctionne pas bien ; nous sommes arrivés a 23 heures en prévenant via agoda, rien n'était prêt pour nous
