We enjoyed four lovely days at the Thavansouk Resort. We had a river view room. The outlook was superb. That, and a very nice breakfast, was all that mattered. Communication with staff was so so but the room was kept clean and everything, including wifi, worked. Happy memories.

When you book and a bit later you send a message to ask for a double and the day before your arrival (so 24+ hours later from that message and while you are already on your way) you receive such a message "You were unable to book a double room at our hotel because we have sold all of them... More

The guest booked a twin room which they were allocated and obviously charged for. Having booked a two bedded room they then in the guest question section request a double bedded room. I assumed they booked the twin as we had no double rooms available. I advised them that we would try to accommodate their request should we have a... More

Great terrace with fantastic view (if you take river view room). The rest was very dissapointing. Staff is one of the worst we have ever met, not helpful, unfriendly, ignorant. Breakfast is bad, too.

We were so disappointed with the place. We stayed here because a friend recommended it. None of us had seen the place before yet we booked it coz it looked nice from the photos. It was a BIG fat lie.

Stunning location, absolutely stunning. Room was not the best and the bed was a little uncomfortable. But the location made up for it. Breakfast was a little basic and the restaurant did not appear to open for lunch or dinner. But then again there are an awful lot of eating places within walking distance, so not a problem. The rooms... More

The location is second to none, but this only goes part way to compensate to the 2* service and breakfast. Staff try but poor service apears to come from the top down. So much potential with the location. Rooms older style but fine.

Our room was large and spacious and clean. Short walk to the main town, right on the river. Our room door closed, but with a large gap allowing bugs to get it (although we didn't notice any). We had no hot water and during a heavy downpour, the drain backed up and drained again leaving brown sludge. Wifi was good... More

It is not a guesthouse or hostel. It is resort and priced accordingly. The road to the resort is horrible and unacceptable. We got a map which letters so small that it was inpossible to read anything. If A4 is too small than copy it on A3 ! I was not happy that we got only one towel per person.... More
