"When you like nature, and back to basic for 1 or max.2 nights, this is great! No electric, only oil lamps at night. Good beds (3 per room). Very simple shower, cold water, good western toilet. These floating hotels are in the River Kwai. So romantic, so unique. Just jump in de river and let you float to the last boat, climb on board, walk back and jump again: lot of fun! Food is very good Thai food, set-menu, and breakfast. Very friendly staff. When you visit Kanchanaburi and the River Kwai, it is a must to spend one night here. Can only be reached by boat from Resotel pier, 15 minutes by long-tail boat. Transfer was included in room price. For me the 3 rd time to stay there, everytime with different friends, and they love it!"

"We are very pleased that we have been able to spend a few days at what will undoubtedly be considered by far the best hotel in Kanchanaburi once word gets around. Excellent accommodation, clean, with own balcony and tasteful furnishings. Drinks and cold towels on arrtival and "signing in" was done whilst relaxing on a settee in the lounge. No standing at the reception counter after a journey on a very hot day - a really nice touch. Whilst this is a very large hotel, staff still manage to convey a feeling that you are genuinely welcome. In fact, I would say that although the hotel surroundings are absolutely superb, Dhevamatra,s biggest asset are its staff who are friendly, helpful and always willing to help to ensure that you get the best out of your stay. The Manager arranged a boat trip for us which left from the Hotel Pier and was extremely good value at 800 baht for over two hours (very speedy longtail boat which covers a lot of distance in no time at all - exhillerating and real fun. Kids would love it! There is loads to see in Kanchunaburi and environs. We are going back to stay at the Dhevamantra again a months time! I would encourage anyone to take the opportunity to stay at an hotel which will without doubt become very well known as a gem in this part of beautiful Thailand. "

"It's different from other hotel in Kanchanaburi Thailand,you will touch real nature feeling, many of trees in hotel area and good air. You still feel comfortable and private even it have 90 rooms in the hotel. One thing i don't like is the food because chefs cook it for European (i think) then the taste is tasteless not spicy enough for me (i'm Thai). Pricing is ok for the room but for food and drink is quite expensive."

"The hotel is good, the location is ok, but only the staff where the problems started. Not all the staff but some staff did not understand english, they did not behave nicely, especially at the breakfast room. Rude, did not understand english, and a bit stupid. The hotel management should manage these kind of things onward if they still need a good rating from customers. There is no kettle in the room, no coffee/tea provided in the room, and the breakfast is horrible. "

"This would have to be the pick of hotels in Kanchanaburi. We were very happy with our stay here. We found the location very good with everything we needed nearby. With only a one night stay we hired a motorbike for 1/2 day at 150 tbh to visit all the surrounding sights. Lots of things close by. We found the hotel staff very polite and helpful. The hotel is right in the river.... great views... The pool was very refreshing after a hot day out in the sun. The included breakfast was good. Only negative ( not the fault of the hotel), was the karioke restaurant next door and the terrible singing.. however did finish by about 10pm. We were happy with our stay here and would recommend the hotel, and would definitely stay again."

"Very nice hotel with very friendly staff. Easy check-in and check-out. Breakfast by the river with nice views. I have been here for short breaks before and the location is perfect for the bridge and the railway station. This would be my preferred hotel in Kanchanaburi. A quiet location a short walk to the restaurant and bar area at the bottom of the road. This time, I traveled by bus from Bangkok Sai Tai Mai (100 THB per person, about 2.5 hour journey) and then took a Songthaew from the bus station to the hotel (150 THB for 2 people for the convenience and travel distance to the hotel)."
