Decent hotel for the price.
This place was once something special, but it is getting outdated somewhat. A renovation is in need to bring it back to its former glory. Still comfortable with good facilities.

Good facilities but becoming outdated.
Stayed here a few times when in the area. Nice enough, but might be time to give other hotels a try as this place is showing its age.

Fantastic hotel ......... only one let down
The evening Chef is awful.............. gets the meals wrong........ misses bits out......... and doesnt seem to care.......... wasnt really a problem for the 6 of us stayhing there.......... the hotel just lost a lot of revenue in the evenings as we wnet out and stayed out............. if you notice there is NEVER more than 2 or 3 people in the restuarant at night......... think others think the same.!!!

Great location and good value for money
I have stayed in the hotel a number of times over the last 10 years. It is not a luxury hotel but has undergone some renovations in recent years. It could now do with a few more but it is certainly adequate. There are many other hotels away from the centre of town but this is still the best option, if you want to be right in the centre of Kan. The staff are friendly and made a big effort to sort out unexpected problems that arose for myself and friends. Breakfast is adequate but not great. The swimming pool is very small but OK for kids. There is a nice beer garden and restaurant in the front. The disco used to be very noisy on Saturday nights in former years but this time there was no noise - maybe a sign of the weak rural economy this year. Beds and pillows are comfortable. Bathrooms are adequate. What more could you want for the price?

Not bad
We rushed to find a place in Karn for a night stay. This hotel is right near Aom Chicken Feet, which is our fav restaurant. The hotel is a bit run down but still not bad for a night stay. Wifi is a bit weak.

Qick trip to Kanchanaburi
This hotel would have been 5 star in the day. That day has passed but the charm of a great hotel remains. Staff are very friendly and helpful. One thing i noticed is the huge amount of bath towels issued. Quite unique in this cost concious society. Centrally located, great outdoor bistro where really good food served under the stars.

Could be better
Other than the comfortable bed with 4 pillows which give quite a good night rest, unfortunately I can't say much for the toilets. Its quite run down and in some room the aircon is either broken or quite noisy.
