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.

The hotel is located on the river bank,it's quite good scenery of river Kwai.There is small restaurant name Daveport that serve you variety food and the price isn't too high but not so tasty . We think the room need more maintenance,the quality of wifi and the area around the corridor. We appreciate staff's services. But the most disappointing is the cleanliness of the swimming pool and the pool side bathroom as well.

I stayed 2 nights in this hotel. The grounds are lovely, pool and food is excellent
However we all had the worst 2 nights sleep ever. The rooms are basic but very clean. However the mattresses are horrendous. Memory foam that have you sweating in moments so that you constantly feel damp/wet. The air conditioning is noisy and insufficient. The hotel seems to cater well for animals tho, as there is a cattery and a lot of people with pets staying. The hotel is in blocks and the balcony scenery is beautiful however the constant noise and mattress issues spoilt our stay. But you can't fault the cleanliness and hotel for the price

If you’ve come to see the River Kwai then this hotel is the perfect base for exploring as it is very centrally based in Kanchanaburi.
The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and friendly.
The only thing to be aware of is that if you are on the top floor of any of the buildings the water pressure and temperature can be affected.

Didn’t bother staying. Tried putting my disabled girlfriend on the 3rd floor. No elevator
I previously booked ground floor, stairs to the 3rd floor outside and very steep No handrail
Reception totally unhelpful
I paid only 250 Baht more and stayed at Felix ground floor overlooking the river Kwai
Take my advice. NEVER GO TO STAY at Zeit. You will be disappointed for sure

Been here during new year 2023 and spent about 20k. Everything were not according to standards from the services , lack of cleanliness (pets poop spreading across hotel’s yards and around), not worth for money (you will get very old and smelly room), no covid safety, the worst thing is the hotel called themselves a “Pet friendly” hotel but did not inform the clear rules and regulations to guests. All i can say is there are better hotels in the same price range and very fantastic view and surrounding than this one.

We came down from Bangkok to Kanchanaburi because we want to see Erawan Falls. So we thought this would be a nice place to stay. I love the beautiful view of the river, the nice and peaceful morning, and breakfast was served by the river. Friendly staff, breakfast was good.
Negative comments :
The room needs to be updated, it is old. The walls are way too thin can hear every noise, cats fighting at night, the tv next door and cars turning into the driveway. We had restless sleep, apart from that it is a nice beautiful place.

A really basic hotel. The rooms look better on the picture than they really are. 2 of the 3 rooms didn't have any hot water, so it was terrible to give the children a shower. In 1 room the tap was also broken. The curtains couldn't close, so we had light from outside in our room.

Breakfast was simple but oke.

The only good thing is that they are a shelter for street cats and they are really taking care of. Better than the guest of the hotel 😉

We love this place, it’s quiet, very accessible and easy walking distance to the biggest attractions. The staff are very helpful and very friendly. The rooms are clean and have everything you need in them. If you are going out for the day they will give you a picnic to take if you’re going before breakfast. Everything is lovely and it’s right on the river. The only thing is the pool area could do with some TLC, the sunbeds are limited and the cushions have seen better days! The pool is a lovely size and very clean but it looks old and tired. It’s a shame as this hotel really is amazing and could be so much more than it is with a little investment! I would still come here again if traveling in the area and it’s still a great hotel for the price !
