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.

Pongphen Guesthouse provides quality service. Upon arriving at the guesthouse the staff greeted us with warmth smile, check in was smooth and we got early check in too. Our room is clean and spacious. One thing that I like is their food from breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner they offer a lot of choices from asian to western cuisine, price is reasonable. The location of the guesthouse is not far from Kanchanaburi station, Bridge On The River Kwai, and Kanchanaburi war cemetery. If you’re looking for a Day tour around Kanchanaburi the guesthouse also offer that one, just contact them at the reception. I would like to thank all of the staff, all of you guys are very friendly and helpful during our stay. 5 star for the service! Highly recommend!

Handy location to walk to the bridge and restaurants/bars. The staff are all friendly and helpful. I stayed in a standard room adjacent to the pool. Decent size room showing its age. The double bed was two single beds pushed together with the usual fairly firm mattresses. Small hanging space with no shelving to lay clothes. The aircon, TV and fridge all worked fine though the TV was basically all Thai channels but some english channels. Lighting was adequate. A good breakfast was provided. Decent size pool which looked well maintained. I was up early one morning and at least six staff went through the property cleaning everything. Even though the room was basic and aged my stay was comfortable enough. No problem staying here again when I return.

This was the most incredible place in the world. I was staying here on a group tour and fell Sick. The women running the guest house moved me to a more comftable room and took incredible care of me. One amazing worker personally drove me to hospital when I did not recover and stayed by my side untill I was admitted and came to visit me a day later. There is nowhere better to stay if you want amazing staff and a lovely stay. The facilities were great, the food served was delicious and the pool amazing. This truly was the best place I’ve stayed and I would more than recommend it to anyone.

Been coming for several years prices never change. Hotel is popular now advance bookings recommended. Great, friendly staff who love a laugh. Food is great has an extensive English / thai menu. Rooms clean,/tidy. Superior very large rooms on 3 floors each room has its own table and comfortable chairs not on a private balcony but very spacious anyway. Deluxe nice rooms also some of the budget rooms are by the swimming pool, smaller rooms but due to the outside seating area feels spacious Its so relaxing here overlooking the river. Close to all nightlife such as it is in kanchababuri. Hotel bar closes 10pm. So the noise is kept to a minimum.

Beautiful hotel, lovely pool and the restaurant food is great! Staff are very friendly and room was big size and clean. Mini fridge and air conditioning in room. Hotel literally in the perfect location! Tucked away off main road so peaceful but also lots of restaurants right on doorstep. Lots of attractions also walking distance. Place to park moped right outside. Cannot fault ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

How did I not know about this hotel? Have been to Kanchanaburi many times and only booked a room here when my other 2 go-to hotels were full. Great room (deluxe double), very clean and spacious. Was on the top floor and had a nice view of the river. Strong quiet AC, safebox, hot water shower, kettle, and fridge. TV had no English channels, which is normally no big deal, but it's nice to have at least a news channel to watch. Swimming pool was clean and was a great way to cool off in the steamy afternoon heat this town offers. Breakfast was included, which was coffee or tea, plus a selection of Thai or western options. All staff I interacted with spoke English well and were helpful. They also offer motorbike rental and laundry service. I have to say, this is one of the best value hotels in this price range in this town. For just a few dollars more than the budget hotels here charge, you get a major upgrade over those rooms. This hotel will now be my number 1 choice in town.
