The 3-star River Kwai Hotel is located in the heart of the city with easy access to taxis, buses, and trains, and the train station is only one kilometer away from the hotel. Taxi or tuk-tuk rides from the River Kwai Hotel to the Bridge, the War Cemetary, and the Tiger Temple will take minutes and set you back between 40 to 100 baht, depending on your bargaining skills! The rooms at the River Kwai Hotel are basic, but equipped with all modern amenities and, most importantly, are clean and spacious. The Cowboy bar and disco in front of the hotel provides a great hangout place after a day of sightseeing. Close to attractions, River Kwai Hotel makes for an excellent base when in Kanchanaburi.

Comfort at a budget price

clean, location and price
Big comfortable room considering two adults and a child, it was more than adequate. Room was cleaned every day to a high standard. The car park was important for us as well as the easy access to the highways out of the city. We would definitely stay again.

Not recommended

Staff, breakfast, location
I have not stayed in a hotel this run down for a long time, the carpets on our floor in communal areas were filthy and coming up from the floor, the bottom of room doors were almost rotted away, I wouldn't rate this as three star either, more like 2 star. This hotel needs a serious makeover to compete in such a competeitive arena. The staff however were very good and very helpful, breakfast was also good, as is the location.

Not as good as on previous visits

location, parking,comfortable bed & pillows
We have stayed here many times before - previously it has been good, with excellent staff esp. doorman & bell hop/porter. This time no one helped carry bags in, no one on door. Check in staff were OK but not especially helpful. They told us where the lift was - so we had to take bags to room ourselves. No apology for this. Room was quite but a bit weird with concrete pillar in middle. No tea/coffee making facilities. TV was an old CRT and remote a bit fiddly to use. Good selection though including BBC world. WiFI was really good - good connection, fast speed and generous time allowance. Only 1 armchair which was stained and old. bathroom was OK. Breakfast had reasonable choice but western items a bit limited (no bacon which they used to have) coffee - very strong and poor quality. As mentioned we have stayed there several times over many years in the past the hotel was really decrepit but it has been improved (in fact we stayed there shortly after it first opened about 30+ years ago - service was chaotic then with poorly trained staff) Its just a pity that on this occasion the staff (or lack of them) made what we hoped would be an enjoyable visit after a LOT of travelling, into a less than enjoyable time than it could have been. To be frank with so many hotel choices now available in Kanchanaburi we will definitely investigate other options next time. We had planned on a different one this time but my wife thought we should stay with the tried and known one - so this turned out to be a poor decision in the end

pleasant place to stay

Nice room, nice staff, things to do in the area
I had a pleasant stay, close to the city and markets. Quite far to walk to the bridge over the river kwai but transport can be taken
