        Go for the location and the view ”
        Tara Raft is a decent enough place to stay. My room was not very clean and did not look like the photos at all. The bathroom was gross. However being on the water was really nice and it was really relaxing to spend the evening on the roof with a book. The location was great, just a short distance from many of the main attractions and tourist points. Worth the money I paid for it for sure!

        The only less satisfactory feature is the state of maintenance. Be it not critical yet though, it would be good to start repairing and replacing broken items in the rooms. Will book Tara Raft again. That's for sure.

        lots of staircases”
        for me, after my knee surgery in May, difficult to reach reception, none of that shows on the photo's and neither is it mentioned in the description. The basic room was very disappointing, not floating, dark, with one window looking over dirty water with rubbish in it and the sides of other floating (?) guestrooms. The upgrade was better, but not worth the money.

        Ok, but search further...”
        Host was good and helped us with what she could. Bed in our room was good, but overall impression of the place (location and tidiness) was just alright. Think you can find better accomodation for less or the same amount of money. Because you are situated over the river, be aware of few mosquitos and lizards (not dangerous _ but you actually dont want to see them...)

        Outstanding location, an OK room, not soundproof though”
        The view from this place is great. They've got sunset views on the right side and sunrise views on the left. There's a tiny "balcony" with a bench outside each room (Superior type) and it's very close to the water, awesome feel. The hotel is not far from the main touristic street. The bed is very big and the mattress is really comfy, not too hard like Thais usually prefer. The aircon works fine. The room was relatively clean but not spotless. The hotel is built on a platform on the water, it doesn't float but if there's a big wave coming from a big boat, it can move a little. The building is very lightweight, made of metal panels I assume, so you can literally hear what your neighbors are talking about.

        Off putting reception lady supervisor ”
        Avoid this place. Stayed here a few times before but gone down hill. The reception supervisor lady (named Wan - means sweet in thai) was as sour as two lemons up someone’s a hole. She basically slaved the Burmese housemaids around. The property had many steep dangerous stairs from the car park and basically when Wan noticed any guest arriving or leaving (security camera) she basically calls out to the housemaids “I am going to the toilet, take the guest luggages up and down the stairs”. This happened a few times and she didn’t know we could understand thai. We instead carried our own luggages. On the other hand, the Burmese housemaid staff were really friendly and helpful and you could tell they were scared of Wan. Anyway, feel free to stay there if you like the idea of slavery. Property is ok. Cramped room. Many other options and cheaper close by (see next door property VN guesthouse, which share the same car park and which has a fantastic restaurant overlooking the water). Shop around peeps.

        not what I expected!”
        If I had seen my room before purchasing online, never in a million years would I accept a dingy little fire trap room. I was expecting a room on a raft on the river, like the pictures showed. (bait and switch) Kanchanaburi has lots of options on the river better than this. Horrible!

        OK but there is better accommodation on the water for the price”
        Combined toilet and shower, which means wet floor when going to the toilet. Water leaks out of the shower into the room entry way and then into the hall way...the other room our friends were staying in had the same problem. Access to the rooms requires a trek over the building and down some steep steps, very awkward with baggage. The television had so much static it was unwatchable, seems to be an antenna issue as our traveling companions had the same issue in their room. Although it had air-conditioning and was comfortable, there is better value else where in Kanchanaburi.
