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... More

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... More

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... More

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 :-)... More

for over two years I am travelling around the world by bicycle and I stayed in many guesthouses, hostels or hotels. this guesthouse is clean with reasonable prices. friendly staff, but rooms can be very noisy. the guesthouse is directly at the bridge (main road). rooms could be better maintained.
