VN Guesthouse is perfectly perched on the banks of the picturesque and historic River Kwai. The hotel embodies the laid back nature of its setting offering peaceful views of the steady current and beautiful sunsets and over the river bank from the on-site restaurant or comfort of your own room. The staff is friendly, english speaking, and has an amazing memory for all of your dining or drinking needs, making it a truly carefree stay with all meals an beverages being settled at once in the final bill. What is just as nice about the serenity of one's stay at VN, is the proximity to all of the lively nightlife and adventure excursions that Kanchanaburi has to offer. One of the main streets shopping, dining, drinking and dancing is few minutes stroll from the inn. What is even better than the excellent food, wonderful service, picture perfect setting, and strategic location is the unbelievably fair pricing. I will absolutely be returning to the VN Guesthouse for my next Kanchanaburi vacation and suggest that anyone else looking for an honestly fantastic experience do the same.

By booking almost a year in advance we had the best room - #10 (raft, front, right corner, looking upstream).
We got more than what the room cost. The room is very basic, but sitting on the porch watching the river having coffee was priceless.
The staff was excellent, the food was excellent and eating all of our meals in the outdoor restaurant, also looking over the river, was not to be missed.
Being just a few blocks from the main road it was easy to get to the train station and visit the War Cemetery.
We spent 4 nights there and would not hesitate to book there again.

I stayed here in 2010, we stayed in a three birth room over looking the river, and got to watch the sunset everynight. It was well aircon'd and clean throughout. The service was excellent and the food fantastic. I really enjoyed my time in the provence and would definitly stay here again. It was great to stay on a floating raft which rocked gently! We were even collected by the hotel on our arrival on the train from Bangcock! Brilliant!

I really enjoyed this place even though the rooms were a little tired - I just loved the idea of being on a raft on the river Kwai. Unfortunately all the riverside rooms were taken - understandably, but I still really felt at home in my room. First time I've seen a clothes aired in a room so made use of that, and really enjoyed sitting on the balcony . Saw some reptile swimming past. Bed was clean and comfortable. The guy who runs it is quite quiet/shy but extremely helpful. Food is ok and the restaurant has a beautiful view. Would happily return to VN. They also rent bikes here. Wonderful chilled atmosphere at this place.

We haven't actually stayed in VN Guesthouse, because they were overbooked. We ended up in some other raft guesthouse which was really crap and we got very disappointed. Next morning we came back to VN and asked if we could leave there our bags (we didn't like that other place) and the staff was more than friendly and helpful! They let us leave our stuff, use their wifi, rented bikes for free (to make up for the overbooking). They even droped us later at a bus station.
The food was very nice and the staff was great. If we're gonna be back in Kanchanaburi, we're gonna come back to VN for sure :)
