VN Guesthouse is a relaxing and comfortable riverfront guesthouse with panoramic views of the River Kwai. The family that runs the guesthouse is welcoming all guests to enjoy the wonderful aspects of Kanchanaburi and making sure everyone is having a wonderful stay. We are just a 2 KM away from the bus terminal (city centre) and 1 KM from the Kanchanaburi train station. In a short walk you will find the area with restaurants and bars. A great way to discover the city is on a motorbike (for rent at the front desk) and we are able to arrange tours in cooperation with local travel agencies. We offer clean rooms and basic rooms for a good price. Our wide choice of rooms fits to all needs; from rooms on the raft with fan to deluxe rooms with air-condition & hot water shower. All our rooms have private shower and toilet. Our restaurant captures beautiful views of the river and serves delicious traditional Thai, Burmese and European dishes from 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM.

The room we booked had a lovely riverside view, with a great terrace with tables and chairs for each room overlooking the water. Great place to relax at the end of the day or enjoy a takeaway. The food at the restaurant was very good and the restaurant also has a nice view over

We used two different rooms (stayed 4 nights) and both were very clean and comfortable. Aircon was working good and so were the showers. Good bedding. Limited toiletries were provided, just a minuscule piece of soap. Food in their restaurant was good, good service almost all the

This is the best place to stay in Kanchanaburi! The price is great deal, great location and staff! Stay here! Internet works, its close to shopes and restaurants, the only thing- tours here are expensive and not worth the price

VN Guesthouse is situated on the riverside. The place is very convenient since it also has a restaurant that offers good food (but pricey) with a cozy ambiance. And by cozy, I meant that you can lay down while watching the river in the restaurant. You have the option to be

Hi, There are rooms that are not directly on the river - these rooms have an open verandah looking onto a concrete/stone walkway. The garden at VN Guesthouse is not the lush, green, grass-covered variety but rather a concrete/stone area with some plants.From memory, there is no barrier to stop your children wandering down the path to the river side of the guesthouse. If you look at the photos of VN Guesthouse you can see how the railings are constructed and decide for yourself if they are sufficiently safe. In my opinion, as the guesthouse is close to the water and there isn't a garden for your children to run around in, it's not suitable for small children.

Rob is mostly right. Walk straight out of the train station, cross the main road, NOW TURN LEFT AND WALK TO THE END OF THE BLOCK. Now turn right, with the cemetery across the street, you will soon pass the museum.. At the end of that road cross over this road and head down a narrow residential street, which is to the right, by the school. At the end of this street the road will turn right as you are now at the river. It'll be on your left with a row of motor scooters in front. Don't forget to take your shoes off at the entrance to the restaurant/reception desk. I am a retired Geography teacher and remember details.
