We stayed at this hotel for two nights, we booked directly with the hotel and did the two night delights package. We were picked up promptly from our hotel in Bangkok and our journey and tour in Kanchanaburi were all very good and well planned. After our visit to the Bridge we swapped from our group tour to our own...

Wow what an amazing location! We couldn't fault the hotel however the rooms could do with some slight updating! Some of the linen had an old / musty smell which isn't great. Great service by all staff and the food was also excellent!

The Floathouse is truly a great place to stay. The staff and location superb. Only thing to be aware of is that you need to be able to get into and out of a boat to go to the Floathouse. Only other concern is that for some meals, the food was not hot. However we really enjoyed the location rooms...

After a 3 hr bus ride from Bangkok we were shuttled to this resort via a Thai long tail boat. The float house truly floats and each small hut has a thatched roof (finished inside)and teak interiors with creative rope work as a decorative elements. Very unique! Bed comfy with great linens. Bathroom had all the conveniences including a private...

Been there with my partner for pre-valentine celebration. Very wonderful place. Staffs are friendly and love their smiles every time when they greet you. The food over there also delicious. Room is very clean and tidy. Very privacy. Lots of activities can be arranged. Nice place for relaxing too!

This is so worth a visit. You drive to a jetty where you get into a covered long boat that whizzes you up the fabulous River Kwai. Huge bamboos line the river like giant ferns, and you can't believe how beautiful it is. And then you see the hotel - a line of beautiful chalets on floats nestling into a...

We were supposed to be ready 6:20 and hadn't it been for us asking, we got the message less than 12 hours before leaving (and checking out of) the hotel. Not very comforting. First coffee break 7:50 and due to undisciplined and unclear instructions, the break took 45 minutes before heading for the next hour to the city. The bus...

The rooms, the service, the location were just amazing. We were here at the floathouse only for few days for our Honeymoon and it was just great. As the number of rooms is limited to 14 rooms you do not feel like being in these big resorts where you have hundred of tourists. We spend 3 weeks travelling through Thailand,...

River Kwai Float House is a very nice place to stay with picturesque views, but THAT'S IT. The money spent and time had there wasn't worth it to my new husband and I. Furthermore, it is so expensive and time consuming to get there and back, that it wasn't worth it. River Kwai arranged for a taxi to take us...

Dear 584lucy, Thank you for your first hotel review on Tripadvisor. We would like to clarify the incidents to other readers. The charge of 500 baht is not on us. It is the standard price charged by the local taxi. We take zero commission on this. It is not comparable with the taxi service in big city like Bangkok where...

This is such a peaceful venue, occasionally the peace is broken buy a longtail boat flying by. I had the best nights sleep ever here the bed was so comfortable is was like sleeping on air. The food is good, there are a few places to visit although we only went to the Mon village. It's very pleasant experience, I...
