Many people go to Amphawa just for day trip, but I will recommend staying one night at least in this hotel. Hence you will able to experience morning and evening feel of the floating market. It is within walking distance to floating market, shortcut way will spend 3min coming from the river shop behind, while using main road will spend 10min walking and will pass by shop lots and day market than only enter floating market officially from the main entrance.
The floating market only happen during weekend, it begin at 10am and 5pm most of the shops are start closing, the shop lots continue open till after dinner only nearby the entrance. Hence no point to go early morning, unless you want to take a boat rides to visit 5 temples with 50baths per person and it will spend you 3 hours. The idea time to walk around floating market is about 11am. But at night also have another chill up feel.
The hotel’s architecture is combined with modern and traditional Thai feel. Is open air every floor, and it has a living hall in the center court on every floor, is a good place gathering your friend. Every room comes with balcony, and I love the balcony with turf carpet, I had a wonderful tea time there. The air-cond very strong, till I have to off it or change to fan mode sometime. Wifi’s connection is strong and is free in the room. The bathroom’s design does impress me with the artistic wooden door and washing basin is outside from the bathroom.
Language is the only problem in this hotel (and in this town), the hotel staffs are friendly and very polite but unable to communicate in English. I think only one lady staff is able to speak limited English at the reception. She does help me to arrange massage in the hotel and transport to Bangkok and train market, appreciated.
We did try the Thai massage in this hotel but the capacity is only 2 pax in the same time, if you are really needs a full body massage, believe me to stay in this hotel. Because surrounding is no massage center, but you can get 2 massage shops in the floating market at the end of river bank (a long walking distance), it is ideally for foot and shoulder massage with cheaper price, but recommend having full body massage in this hotel. Overall, massage is expensive than Bangkok; food is cheaper than Bangkok. Souvenir is depends, some are unique which I didn’t manage to find in Bangkok, especially the coconut lights.
It is a relaxing place to stay, and I love it. I had missed the rooftop restaurant, perhaps will come in next time with kids.
