I booked the room via agoda that’s fast booking and check-in. Nice staff at the front desk. There were not enough staffs at the lounge for breakfast, also the staffs wasn’t nice. Not enough choices of breakfast for this cost of room we spent. The wall was thin so that you can hear the loud noise from upper floor. The room was big with balcony but the bed was not soft. There were ants in the room. Anyway, this hotel has nice view. If I have a chance to come back, I’ll say no.

I loved the hotel, the pool is beautiful. The decoration and the room size is great. The bathroom is small but well equipped with right amenities, and there is a standing shower that is great too. There is not elevator so if you are booked on the 2nd, 3rd or 4th floor make sure your knees are ok. Usually the staff helps with the luggage too. There is a but. The clealiness. The hotel seems to be clean as the colors are kind of dark, deep purple eggplant color. The room looks clean but there are small ants around the coffee and tea making facilities. We did have also ants in the sink in the bathroom. The sink had kind of patches of a white thing around. There are some damage parts in the room that should be repaired. Windows are huge and need to be cleaned too to enjoy that amazing view they have. Bed and linen are quite clean, the views from the room are amazing, full river kwai view in all floors. Lower floors, probably a little less, but views are stunning anyway. The breakfast is limited but sufficient. It is more than enough but the kitchen, open kitchen, is messy and untidy. There are little ants around the bread and croissants. The breakfast view is amazing, right in front of the river. will be amazing if they could decluttered the amount of chairs around. On the way to the pool there are 2 small rooms: one seems to be the kids playroom and the second one, kind of library or meeting room. Both are completely messy and full of staff, cluttered. Not a good look when you walk to the pool. The swimming pool is stunning, maybe with white marble tiles although the wooden floor are in desperated need of repair, some of the wooden boards needs to be fixed because walking bare feet can be even dangerous. We couldnt enjoy the hotel at night. but they have a nice cozy garden and a bar to enjoy the views of the river with some music. Staff is very friendly and willing to help, but seems they are the ones who took over the hotel, thats why probably the hotel is a bit messy and cluttered as there is not management present. The experiencie and the place has been great. We will defintely come back

This is a great hotel with a nice view of the river and away from the business of the downtown area. If you like peace and quiet and still just a 10-minute walk from town, this is the place to stay. The swimming pool is very clean and they have wood platforms along the river for relaxing, having tea/coffee/food, or sunbathing. Breakfast isn't the best but you are within a few minutes' walk from town and there are many restaurants/bars and street food of your choosing. While you are here make sure to visit the Death Rail Bridge, Jeath War Museum, and The Curve coffee shop.

The hotel is nicely located at the river side on a quiet location but just a 5 minute walk from the main street with many restaurants and bars. They have a very nice pool overlooking the river. Rooms are clean and the breakfast service is wonderful (basic but good service and fresh). The reception has a very cozy and local atmosphere. The hotel has free use of bikes to bike around the town. Staff is very service oriented. The hotel doesn't have an elevator and 4-5 levels. So if you can't walk a lot of stairs, make sure you get a room on level 1 or 2.

Pros - Good location and rooms have a good view of the river. Very clean and modern. Can walk to decent restaurants. Good (large) breakfast, cooked to order. Not the cheapest option but the value is good compared to other hotels (more expensive or more dated - or both!) in the area. Cons - If you want a tub, the rooms are on the fourth floor and there is no elevator.
