I pre-booked a standard double room. I paid the money after I check in. After I open the door of the room, I shocked. The bed is very very very small with only one pillow , it's impossible to sleep two persons. The owner said that's the standard double room and he showed me the single room. I am a...

Can't recommend this place enough. The staff are friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The balcony was great. Perfect terrace next to the river. What more could you ask for from a budget hotel. Yeah the road is noisy but what do people expect from a hotel next to a busy road.

The cheapest room i found in chantaburi. The room is small, have a comfy bed, a fan and a mirror. No window and no sockets, unfortunatelly. So I had to charge my phone in the hall or in the lobby. The staff are cool guys, have a nice husky dog.

Best room costs 380B with river (and road )view. Windowless boxes cost 180B. Clean and friendly with a receptionist who speaks some English. They arrange for the mini bus to the border for 150B which will stop just outside the guest house. 150B is for the return trip (same for single) so can do the visa run easily. Has balconies...

We pre-ordered a room, and although we were the only people staying there (as it turned out), we found that only their best room was good enough to accept it; one that was away from the unbearably loud street. We arrived after 6 pm, it was dark already, so no chance to go somewhere else. The room smelled of cigarette...

I'm not sure why they have such terrible reviews I had a really nice time the people there were super friendly and nice. They were helpful about everything. Very clean room. Def worth the money. Beautiful lobby and lounge area outside on river. They have a breakfast menu too. Wud def stay there again.

Huge black mold stains in the bathroom ceiling, which also looks like it might cave in at any second. A big family of cockroaches also lives in the drains. Killed one of them with the complimentary bar of soap. The sheets at least appeared to be clean, although a look under the bed revealed that vaccuming under there doesn't happen...

Overall I had a positive experience here, but after having settled in to my room I discovered with disgust hairs on my bed sheets. Upon further inspection it was clear that they had not been changed since the previous person's stay as they were dirty and areas were literally smothered with (head) hair. I don't have any head hair :-)...
