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.

While this hotel is out of the way it’s a romantic old world experience at a very reasonable price. The staff are lovely but don’t expect them to be fluent in English. This is after all a Thai owned and run hotel. The place looks like it’s 100 years old but the staff said it’s only 10. Either way the building looks colonial inside and out with beautiful wood everywhere. The river view is delightful, the restaurant adequate. You can sit inside or outside by the river. Appears that the owner are “collectors” of all sorts of fascinating things from cars to carvings.

The food was terrible and in fact I had a bad stomach after eating there. The staff was not very efficient and the room was mediocre. Had dealings with the Manager who was not very helpful. Location was good and near amenities but that was the only good thing. Left early and booked into another hotel.

we spent one night in this hotel and we have some comment to share.
1. the location is ideal for quiet weekend, it so close to bangkok but it so peaceful looking at the river by 8.00pm it so quiet. totally love it
2. Koh Kred, it a must do, eating and visiting village. Just love the boat ride.
3. We had a riverview room and I totally worth the money for upgrade, the upgrade cost 500 THB/night. the decoration and material are high standard. Free WIFI but poor light in the room, too dark to read
4. the swimming pool on 2nd fl has the best view for sunset. very lovely and peaceful
5. the restuarant is very good, nice view, nice food with decent price but the food have to wait quite along time especially the grill menu

Something I want to comment for the hotel
1. I think you should do something about people who visit nearby restuarant come on to the hotel since the hotel is pretty open space and you have rooms on ground floor as well. To have people wondering around make guests feel a little bit uncomfortable.
I mean they can go right up from the front to the pool then walk direct to second floor. I totally understand that you have strict security right at the gate but still I feel uncomfortable.
If i'm a hotel guest who swimming and having a peaceful moment for the sunset then all of sudden people turn up, i think my moment kind of ruin.
I think you need a bit more separation between hotel and restuarant
2. I would like to have more information on activities. You can sell a lot more if you tell me more what you have available instead of having me guessing what activities available.
3. Why you have DVD player when you dont have DVD to borrow? nothing serious but we just think it doesnt make sense lol.

Overall, we still like it and will recommend to our friends if they dont have alot of time to drive out of town but want some place to relax

This hotel is on the riverside and is very special. We were there for a wedding and you can easily see why this is a chosen venue for weddings. The rooms are comfortable and spacious with some of them even having their own swimming pools. Something we really did enjoy, very clean and very private. I would stay there again anytime.

Stayed at this hotel earlier this month and it was so enjoyable and really great value. It is a
quiet setting beside the river, but easy enough for a cheap taxi into the heart of Bangkok. Was an excellent, romantic,tranquil stay, delivered with great service.

Will definately be my go to place on my return visits/lay-overs in bangkok.

First of all I was impressed by Khun Gab, the guy who made a reservation for me. He's very kind and polite. He gave me many important information about your hotel, facilities, hotel's restaurant, direction and etc. At the first saw your hotel on official website I think it's very beautiful, I could get some fresh air, and enjoy having dinner at your restaurant.

I worked hard for all night and had not sleep since last night so I decided to stay at your hotel as I really needed some rest.

When I was relaxing in the room, I would liked to call room service to order a drink, and I found out that there was an insect on telephone in my room. Then I called to inform reception about what I found in the room. They sent a house keeping to take an insect out of my room. Anyway the house keeping said apologies to me and explain to me that your hotel did PEST CONTROL on Tuesday. I do understand but it's unacceptable reason. You have to make sure that Your room is inspected and cleaned. Then I had chanced to talk to FOM, and he offered me to move to other room.

I move to other room and I found it again above my bed!!!!!! Even your FOM promised me that he would send some staffs to deep clean this room before I moved!!! I called to informed reception again!!! Your reception and house keeping staffs changed bed sheets for me. It took around 15 mins. to make sure that there was not insect in my room any more. I could take a nap at 3.20pm since I checked in at 12.07pm!!! How come?!!

I don't need any compensate, I just need to sleep without an insect in my room!!!!

stayed twice as hotel was so so enjoyable and great value.
quiet setting by the river but easy enough for a cheap taxi into the heart of bangkok.
huge rooms by any city standard, great four poster bed,full size desk , lovely balcony.
lovely tiled bathroom with huge ,powerful walk-in shower and huge mirror!!

2 great pools, one in the courtyard and the other overlooking the river.

we were late for breakfast buffet on day 1, but no problem and a sumptious feast was whipped up in next to time and still served with famous thai smiles.

only minor annoyance was the price of sangsom (local thai whisky/rum) that is now my fave tipple priced almost the same as top shelf branded spirits plus tax and service charge.

overall was an excellent, romantic,tranquil stay delivered with great service.
the fact it is slightly off the beaten track makes it so serene.

will definately be my go to place on my return visits/lay-overs in bangkok.
