What we say: 3.5 stars

This riverside guesthouse at the far east of the island is comprised of three traditional Thai teak wooden houses and a newer neighbouring building. The main house by the river is more than a century old and although these rooms are all fan with shared bathroom, the four-poster beds, dark-dwood interiors, stylish period furnishings and upstairs terrace with river views more than make up for it. There is also a spacious dorm room with four beds on the floor, and ample shared bathrooms have clean hot showers. Antiques dotted around the place include old black and white portraits of Thai women and early 20th century typewriters. A second, more modern building has a few spacious air-con rooms with hardwood floors, large ensuite bathrooms and verandas with river views. The other two houses near the road have rooms with ensuite bathrooms, simpler furnishings and are cheaper in price. Bann Kun Pra also has a great riverside Thai restaurant and WiFi is free throughout. The location is a five-minute walk from the bus and minibus pick-up points and even closer to the ferry to the train station, but it can get noisy thanks to thin walls, boats on the river and cars/trucks on this busy stretch of U-Thong Rd.
