              Nice Hotel”

              A very nice, clean hotel. The rooms were immaculate, The air-conditioning worked great, no problem at all with the Wi-Fi, all very important to me. I did think they could work on the pool area a little more as the water didn’t seem crystal clear. The water is pretty deep, starting at about 4 feet on the shallow end and up to 10 feet in the deep end. The exercise room also could use some work as some of the machines did not work properly. The breakfast buffet was average. All in all a nice hotel which was walking distance to the war cemetery, food and shopping.

              Gary W.”

              Exactly what we wanted. A Thai medium range hotel. One room in our party had not been cleaned properly - floor messy and used towel still in there but quickly fixed. The staff put us all in the wrong rooms but quickly realised and moved us to better rooms. All good after that. Great pillows - so soft. Breakfast was as expected from a hotel of this class and price range. I would use it again for similar trips.

              Mosquito-infested toilet and very old rooms.”

              Though the facade of the hotel looks quite grand and classic but that's all it is. I guess they never renovate the hotel since the 90s? Every single day when I returned to my room, the toilet was infested with hatched mosquito larvae (easily 4-6 of them) and they will be flying around in the toilet. After you are done killing them, the room is quite liveable. If you are into club/pub/massage parlour, the hotel has them all around it. It's almost in the same building so to speak. Oh yes, the saving grace is that breakfast was decent.

              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 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.

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.

              Stayed for 4 nights with 8-9-14 children. Everything was safe. Kids love the pool and the breakfast selection was great. I would recommend this hotel to any one with the children. 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.

              Arrived at this hotel and didn't realise how big it was. It has got several restaurants a bar and a coffee shop as well as a large reception area and swimming pool . 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

              We enjoyed staying here and will stay here again if in the area. The room was comfortable but not very large. The staff was very friendly checking in and out. The breakfast was very good with a nice layout and good egg preparation. I especially liked the wood-carved furniture in the lobby and on the wall by the elevator.

              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.

              What I like about this hotel is that it is situated on the main road from BKK, has a nice bar, and a hair dresser just a few steps from the hotel. The reception service is very good. The rooms have been renovated which are quite nice for the price. However, the hall needs some renovation and recarpetted. Laundry service is quick with low cost.

              Still a good hotel worth the price”

              Location. Staff. Breakfast. Clean rooms.

              I have stayed at this hotel many times over the years. have found it good value for money. In a good location, close to most attractions. it is starting to show it's age, but with friendly staff and a good breakfast, I can recommend it.
