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.

Highly recommend this hotel for spending time near River Kwai. Good service, nice rooms, excellent location. There are all the places you may need close to the hotel: shops, market, bars, cafes, dancing club.

The hotel was very close to where we had to be for ANZA ceremony. We were running at an extreme pace when we arrived at the hotel. All went very fast and easy upon arrival. The stay was pleasant, the room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent.

I have stayed here three times before and will stay again. I like the proximity to war cemetry and other highlites of Kanchanaburi. The staff here are easy to talk to and very efficient. The buffett breakfast is magnificent.

Nice surroundings. Entertainment. Shops. Friendly personnel. Close to Kanchanaburi War Cemetery and the very informative and educative Museum (Thailand-Burma Railway Centre)next to this Cemetery. The best Museum about the Death Railway in town. A must!!

            Great location, within walking distance of the railway and bus station, with very friendly and helpful staff. The room I had was clean, but I would advise against using the swimming pool as pigeons would flock there every morning and leave their waste behind. Nonetheless a fantastic stay!

            The hotel is old, but it is properly maintained. It look like it was a nice hotel before. The room is big, there is bathtub and the water heating and pressure is good. AC works well and bed, room is big. Breakfast buffet is respectable. I would actually stay here again. Good for couple and family.

            The hotel was in a pretty easy location, close to the railway station and not too far from the bus station. The room was nice and clean as well as the swimming pool. I enjoyed having the Glitzy Chill just outside for food and drink and live music. Gave the place a nice atmosphere!

            Cons: We didnt get what we paid for, The bed was rock hard, There was no hot water, The staff smiled and that was it, The toilet wouldnt stop flushing, Anybody with children beware, the windows are less than 2 feet from the floor and can be opened very easily. Pros: Plenty of free water and 2 free Colas. Summing up the hotel is very run down and even the renovated parts are done poorly or should I say cheaply. Will not be returning.

            Overall i was happy with this hotel. First impressions were good,when i arrived. Professional staff,good reception and sevice. The room was fine with a very comfortable bed. I just felt the room was a bit dated and needed a bit of modernising. The bathroom let it down.Very poor shower. The shower was just an old limescale encrusted mixer shower and no hot water half the time. Desperately needs an uprade. I liked the pool.It was a good sixe with plenty of spave around it. The restauant was also very good with an unusually varied selection of German beers! I liked it overall but the bathroom puts me off.I like a good shower,but this was aweful...and cold.

            The location is very convenient as it's close to the bus terminal (But a bit far from the Bridge). The staff is very nice and the hotel offers a very rich breakfast, my boyfriend and I were super satisfied with it. The bed is comfy but the room might need some renovation. All in all, I really liked this hotel. If I would visit Kanchanaburi again, I'd choose this hotel for sure.

            I was allocated at a 2nd floor room, but the room is too old and there is water leaking issue, they change it to room at 5th floor. The room is good just there is some water stability issue. The tap water is a kind so hard water so there is some white powder appears when u boiling it but it is consumable. I have tried it :). The breakfast is good. I like the fried rice a lot.

            My main problem was the lack of transport. The get anywhere you were left at the mercy of motorbike taxis charging structure. For some reason the songthaews often didn't stop. We went to the bridge and walked to the main road and stood for half an hour with songthaews passing and not stopping. Ended up paying for 2 motorbikes. Might have been better paying for a hotel closer to everything. Hotel was clean and pool nice. Breakfast typical mid range Thai hotel. Not special but OK. The restaurant at the hotel and at the bar outside was very limited - more choice across the road .

Only problem was the internet system. We each had to get a new code every 8 hrs which was pointless and hard to use at times.

Ate in the restaurant outside and this a a varied menu and we ordered so western food and thai food and both were really good quality and tasty. The rooms were very comfortable and clean but this is an old hotel and some of the decor could do with a refresh

            Centrally located, friendly staff, large rooms
            The hotel has obviously been a very impressive one in the past. It is now a little dated but still has impressive ornate furnishings in the lobby area. Bedrooms although a little dated are large with comfortable bedding and furnishings. A bedside clock would be a welcome addition. Staff are friendly and helpful - they were very obliging in organising cars for a trip to Hellfire Pass and the trip back t Bangkok. The doorman was extremely helpful during heavy rain.
