A reliable and quiet option

Northern stretch of Maenam Kwai Road, Kanchanaburi

Aajam Guesthouse

Located a fair distance towards the quieter northern stretch of Maenam Kwai Road, Aajam lacks style and charm but delivers what it promises: a quiet night's sleep by the river with air-con, WiFi that works and TVs that have English-language channels.

The cheaper rooms are in a single-storey motel-style building overlooking the river and are a bit rundown, with springy beds, large TVs and basic hot water wet bathrooms. They do however have old bamboo tables and chairs out front and the guesthouse also has a floating restaurant, though it was closed when we arrived mid-week. Pricier rooms are set in a recently built two-storey building, and while these are equipped with fridges and larger bathrooms, they feel very sterile and have tile floors that seem to belong in a bathroom. They also have a bizarre design that separates the room into a tiny “TV area” with a dingy couch and a separate sleeping area. Little English is spoken here but it's a decent back-up plan for those who don't book ahead -- plenty of rooms were available when we visited.
