By the river, but away from the heavily toured areas of the river and town. It's family owned, very clean, very nice garden and a small swimming pool. The food is absolutely great. There's a nice village about 1 km up the road, with a small daily afternoon market that is worth a visit. Along the road there are plenty...

Booked for a six night stay at this beautiful place via Agoda. On arrival it was clear that the pool was empty. We were greeted by a lovely Thai lady who said " We are closed for ten days, did you book with Agoda. She had informed them of the problems, which included her husband gone away!!!

We booked a bungalow Jan 3rd until Jan 5th. We arrived from Bangkok at Xanadu around 3PM and were welcomed in very limited English (yes/no/maybe) by the 3 gardeners. They gave us a key and told us the owner wasn't there but should arrive at 5PM. Long story short: we never met the owner, we weren't welcomed, the pool was...

We booked with a direct phone call while we were in another area of the country. It helped that we speak Thai. Upon our arrival it was notable that though it was high season very few of the rooms were occupied. We are very undemanding guests and in general we were pleased enough with cleanliness and comfort. What is readily...

Arrived just after 17.00hrs together with two other ladies who, like us, had booked through Agoda. Place was deserted apart from one young boy who we could not understand. He spoke with the taxi drivers. The owner was not the site and the boy had no idea were he was. The place appeared to be completely deserted. We went into...

We took the train from Thonburi station to Kanchanaburi which was around 2.5 hours of very relaxed travel seeing the countryside.

All day driver in a/c car was the way to...
