We had a downstairs room facing the office - room C. The room was quiet large with a double and single bed, TV, table and chair, and a drying rack. There was also an ensuite wet room and another 'room' that was open to the outdoors with slits in the wall - we tried drying clothes in there but they just stayed wet for days and then smelt badly! The room was mostly clean but the bathroom was a bit outdated and grubby. The rooms are available with or without aircon - they just take the a/c remote out and put in a fan.

The family that run the guesthouse are really nice. From check in to check out they were helpful and friendly and when we were waiting for our mini-van to Ayutthaya they bought us water and grapes and wished us well!

The guesthouse is about a 10 minute walk from the Train station in Kanchanaburi, it's well signposted and just before the main strip of hotels/guesthouses. The location is good for getting around and the main road is a great place to pick up taxis etc. As it was slightly set back from the strip we thought it would be quiet but the hotel backs onto the back of one of the bars and we could hear loud music until midnight each night. Also as our room was by the office we could hear people moving around all night. Weirdly a cat also wanders round at night screeching, but thankfully not all night!

However, my only real problem with the guesthouse is that the beds felt like sleeping on a rock - it was more than firm!

All in all I'd consider staying here again as it was OK value but I'd probably check some other places first!

We stayed at the Thai Guest House in Oct. 2012 for a weekend.

Location is excellent.
It's on the main road with all the bars, restaurants, car rentals etc. but without to much of the downsides like loud noise and much traffic, because the building is 30 meters behind the gateway and separated to the street by a row of buildings.
We had a room upstairs, so we heard some music till 11.30pm, it might be better in the rooms downstairs, but it was okay. If you are a light sleeper, you may not find rest till the music stops.
The mattresses were hard, but comfortable.

Guesthouse is run by a family, so service is great and of course, there's a familiar atmosphere. The guest's can also use the kitchen of the families house, which some guest did. There's no need for it, because good and cheap restaurants are within 2 minutes by walk. When we left, the owner gave us a free ride to the bus station.

We took a scooter for 200 bath/day and visited Erewan National Park, what I recommend everybody to do.

Rooms are clean for local conditions, and they have AC. We paid average of 550 baht per night, which was a gorgeous price for that.
If you like a good price/value, this is the place to stay.

We had a good time there.

This mother-and-son operation is a definite winner if you're staying around backpackerland in Kanchanaburi. Starting at 350 baht, the rooms are incredibly large and spacious with massive beds, TVs (if you need any additional entertainment whilst in SEA), large bathrooms, clothes rack; and, if you're in an upstairs rooms, even a balcony! The family also supply toilet paper. My only complaint is that there are no fly screens - while large windows overlook the front balcony, and sliding glass doors face the back balcony, these can only be kept open if you don't mind being attacked by mosquitos all ight. If they installed some screens, and upgraded the plumbing system (the bathroom was a little smelly), this place would be perfect!

Stayed here in early 2012, found the place by luck, just walking through the town. It turned out to be one of the best stays ever. Close to town conveniences, very reasonable price, extremely clean, and I made a very good friend, Note. I will definitely return, one day.

The best place to stay in Kanchanaburi..! It's cheap & clean. Everything else is just a stone throw away, from nightclubs to bars to eateries to pharmacies to amenities. It's like in the center of everything else.
