Sugar Cane Guest House 2
A relaxing choice
7 Soi Cambodia (off Maenam Kwai Rd), Kanchanaburi T: (034) 514 988 F: (034) 625 213
Sugar Cane 2 is located a fair distance from the main backpacker enclave toward the Death Railway bridge, making this friendly guesthouse a quiet and relaxing option.
Sugar Cane 2 has two main options for accommodation -- rooms in a longhouse-style set up looking over the shady car park, and four air-con rooms in a rafthouse. The former are clean and fairly good value, but the rafthouse is excellent value, with large and comfortable rooms and clean bathrooms attached. They also have a large veranda, which is ideal for looking out over the river. A minor complaint is a lack of privacy, as the walls are paper-thin and the balconies are only separated by lattice, but that's not a bad thing if you're looking to make some friends. WiFi is free, the restaurant does typical backpacker fare and staff are laidback and friendly.
