Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came with two families of 5 and booked 4 rooms for 2 nights. The hotel is beautiful and the rooms immaculate. We enjoyed the pool and kayaking in the river (free from the hotel) and dining in the hotel restaurant. We sampled lots of different kinds of food. Staff was responsive anytime we needed anything.

This is an excellent, authentic Thai style resort. Located on the banks of the river a short distance to the town so transportation is necessary.
Appealing rooms with modern bathrooms, impeccably clean, comfy bed.
Breakfast is very typical of Thai resort, excellent for Thai, maybe not the same for western people.
Staff are friendly and helpful.
I enjoyed my stay.

We absolutely loved this place! From the moment we set foot on the beautiful grounds, to being treated like royalty, and swimming in the infinity pool, we loved it our time here!
The rooms were nice. Breakfast was not my favorite, but I saw the kitchen and it was clean.
It was the beautiful setting that I loved the most. Well taken care of garden and grounds. The pool had stunning views and so relaxing.
I’d highly recommend this place!

The swimming pool and the deck on the river Kwai is great! What a view!
Breakfast are awesome too. Rooms and bed very comfortable. I recommend this place although the location is a bit far from "downtown"

This recently-built beautiful hotel is set in lovely gardens beside the river Kwai.
Rooms are very spacious and well furnished. Huge comfortable beds ensure a good night's sleep.
Had dinner and breakfast in the on-site restaurant - both meals were delicious, with a good selection of food.
Staff were very helpful and friendly.
Highly recommended.

An older style hotel situated just outside Kanchanaburi. Room was very clean with solid fixtures and fittings. The hotel gardens were a highlight - beautifully landscaped and maintained. The river terrace and infinity pool were lovely.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful; for example, on rainy days they met us in the car park with umbrellas :)

We stayed for 2D/1N but wished that we had planned to stay longer just so that we could have spent more time at the hotel.

This has been our third stay at the Princess Kwai and we live it every time. A quiet serene hideaway tucked away on the River Kwai.
If you want a quick qet away from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok or want to appreciate the true meaning of ‘Sabai’ I would recommend this oasis.
Accomendations are great with private small villas for each guest(s). The restaurant has a varied menu, the food is always delicious and the patio vista of the river is worth the stay.
Highly recommend the Princess Kwai!!!!

Welcomed with a smile
Always leave with a bigger Smile krub 🙏

Lovely peaceful hotel in quiet location right on the river 15km from Kanchanaburi railway station and 10km from River Kwai Bridge. Taxis easy to get from reception with max 20 minute wait and 200 baht standard fare. We also borrowed the free bikes which are very good quality and cycled to the bridge. Roads are good with wats to visit en route. Our deluxe river view room was lovely with a view across the pool and river. Mostly very tranquil although people tend to return from trips out and hit the pool just before sundown. Our room 2106 was right by the pool and restaurant at ground level so mostly had to keep nets and curtains closed and balcony had no privacy. First and second floor rooms preferable for this reason. Staff and service good also restaurant for dinner. Freshly cooked and plentiful food at good prices. We got 10% off which was good. I agree with others' comments about breakfast. The a la carte days are better as buffet is a bit of a scrum with items that should be hot ie. eggs, rice etc being cold and nicely presented salad items being a bit warm and limp. Overall great value. We enjoyed our very relaxing stay.

This hotel has to be in one of the most peaceful settings I have experienced. The hotel staff are extremely helpful, the manager arranged scooter hire for me and drove me to collect the scooter himself. Not all the staff speak very good english, but that isn't a negative - after all it is me who is in a foreign country - it all adds to the experience and sign language of sorts can lead to hilarious scenarios. The room was spacious and well appointed, the furniture was traditional wood and the bed was very big. The grounds were absolutely beautifully set and maintained with wooden sculptures and small figures of various animals. The restaurant overlooked the river and the infinity pool and the staff here were extremely attentive. Breakfast was good and included cereals, there was also a good selection from the cooked menu but the portions were large (I could not finish the only one I had!). Being a little way off the beaten track it is essential to rent a car or motor scooter to explore the town and the various places of interest, the hotel do have bicycles to rent for free but cycling in 30-odd degrees of heat is restrictive. All-in-all we had a wonderful stay here and we look forward to returning sometime in the near future.

We stayed in Princess in January 2017 after a long journey. Calm and silent place, very new and clean, beautiful garden, good view to the river Kwai and a refreshing pool. Food in the restaurant was very tasty. This year we go there again with a group of friends.
