I booked a bamboo hut in the river without AC. I picked the most simple hit to experience what most people go through everyday. The single room had 1 plug and a fan to cool the guests. Sitting on the walkway was so surreal especially in the morning. The mats are hard, the canopy took a bit to get use...

Noisy, dark and stinky room. No balcony and no frequent cleaning service. Good Position to Start off to the beach. They started renovating the floor when we moved in... Thats very annoying when relaxing at the Pool

I was hesitant to stay here, because of some of the traveler reviews, but felt obligated to leave a review to CLARIFY a few misconceptions...of previous (possibly inexperienced travel) reviewers. First and foremost, for the price, Bamboo House is everything it should be. We had a Bamboo hut with Air conditioning and also a $7 raft room with a fan....

My 2nd time staying at bamboo house but unfortunately I left early. The noise from the river was unbearable which isn't the hotels fault but the mattresses on the other hand are. My 1st stay I was alone & I forgot how I had to use the duvet from the spare bed to cushion my bottom & legs. I was...

We stayed two nights here and found it a pleasant stay. It is located on the River, and is easy walking distance to the Bridge on the River Kwai. The room was basic but clean with air-conditioning and a small fridge. Breakfast is quite good, and the staff were helpful. Reasonably good value for money.

Perfect hotel next to the rive, sun rise is wonderful, ask for the bungalow on the river. Staff is friendly, breakfast is basic but tasty, and price is...I cannot tell you...2.45 away from Bangkok by train. Go by train, or don't go. Perfect for a week end, disconnected from big city, must be done !!!

We had a floating room on the river for two nights then one night in a classic room. The location is extremely close to the river Kwai bridge and the Jaeth museum. There's also a nice and fairly priced floating restaurant beneath the bridge. Only downfall was that the bed in the classic room was extremely hard and didn't sleep...
