                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.

                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!

                You pay for what you get. It is a little run down. It had a decent breakfast, awesome pool and free coke/water in the room. There was a booming night club outside so make sure your room is on the opposite side.

                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.

                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.

                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

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.

                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.

                Good locaton with fun bar”

                Reception service and a nice bar for all ages

                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.
