Rooms on a River.
A hotel with some rooms that are literally on the river. These rooms have balconies, which give a wonderful view of life on the river. Basic but clean. An easy walk to restaurants and the railway museum and military graveyard.

The hotel is the worst hotel I have ever been in my entire life.It is very noisy at night and the staff are not showing any responsibility to help me out during the night.I can’t sleep at all.I thought going to this hotel will give me a good night rest but I realised I am wrong at the first moment I step into this hotel.

People are very nice. Check in and out were very fast. The room was very good. The bath tub was a little bit old.

Hotel rate is completely unreasonable
River Kwai Hotel is well painted from the exterior but the inside premise needs to be renovated. The room assigned to me has old fixtures and not well maintained. Stinky bidet with little bugs crawling around. The aircon is also old, hence, cannot give cool ambiance. Free Wifi is terrible, frequently asked for log-in username and password. On the other hand, breakfast is good and the hotel's location is in strategic position. It is walking distance from the bus station (7-10 min), night market, kanchanaburi train station, and prisoner of war cemetery (7-10 min). There are nearby restaurants and across the street is the 7-11 convenience store.
