River Guest House

Great value by the river

What we say: 4 stars

Located directly next to a busy bridge that's a short walk from the old town, gem market and the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, River Guest House is Chanthaburi's tried and true budget champ. Rooms come in a few sizes, the cheapest of which are tiny boxes with a bed, fan, no window and a single shared cold water bathroom. For 100 baht more, you get a lot more space, TV, private cold water bathroom and plenty of natural light. All air-con rooms come with TVs and hot water baths, and the most expensive ones (still under 500 baht) feature spacious balconies overlooking the river. All rooms are basic and have a lived in but well-kept and inviting feel. WiFi is free and a few computers are available in the lobby for 20 baht per hour. Staff are friendly and accommodating, but the restaurant now only serves breakfast. The guesthouse is tucked right next to the busy bridge on Si Chan Road, so be prepared to hear some traffic noise in the mornings. Other than that it's a great, central location.
