After a few days in bustling Bangkok we decided to look for a hotel outside the city center in Ayutthaya. We never regretted that decision. The place consists of several nice huts in traditional Thai style. The huts are, as far as I know, all equipped with air con. We chose the cheapest huts, but there was plenty room for two and the location by the river bank was nothing short of amazing.
The staff was VERY friendly and helpful and we were really exceptionally welcomed (even for Thailand). The place is well maintained and you see gardeners grooming the nice, lush surroundings all day long.
The downsides are: You can use the villages bicycles for free, but they are really not fit for people taller than 150 cm. Even the Thais had problems using the bikes. And since you are a few kilometers from the city, you have to rely on taxis or tuc tucs (or rent a bike, car or motorcycle in Ayutthaya). The place is in no way dirty, but I would never the less rather have the last few cobwebs in the corner removed than have my towel folded like an elephant.
We can recommend a boat trip on the river, which the staff arranged for us at a reasonable price.
