This is a good spacious resort with immaculately kept grounds, comfortable bedrooms and a good full size swimming pool, but somewhat remote from attractions unless you have your own transport. Having said that there could be a downside. There is a notice in the toilets

Royal River Kwai Resort & Spa is not a one of a kind hotel. The setting is nice, big pool area, spacious rooms, but all a bit outdated. Staff is very friendly, but not so experienced and professional. This place could use a refurbishment

Yes they can but car hire is quite cheap and the traffic is quiet around this area. We drive from Bangkok which was a bit busy but ok once out of the city.

The journey from Bangkok airport to the hotel is three hours so can't be done in a tuc tuc. a taxi would be a very reasonable £40

Guten Tag Ich war nur eine Nacht in Kanchanaburi und ich kenne sie und ihre Interessen nicht. Die Gegend bietet viel, vom Wasserfall, Flussfahrt und die berühmte „Brücke am Quai „. Auch das Museum ist interessant. Die Stadt selber bietet nicht viel und Mann kann alles zu Fuß machen. Ich hoffe, Ihnen ein wenig geholfen zu haben. Gruss Bruno

"I prefer a room on the first floor."
"A Bloc appears to be best"
"Try the evening dining alongside the river. We really enjoyed it."
"Very important: The best rooms, those away from the pool, are in Building C; both upstairs and downstairs; not in Buildings A & B."
"An upstairs room would give better view of the gardens and facilities."
US$ 50 - US$ 71 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
