We stayed 2 nights, booked via booking.com for 1900bt including breakfast. We came by train from Bangkok and we had only 300m to walk from Ayutthaya trainstation to this hotel, no tuktuk hokey-pokey needed … this is definitely a positive point for us.
This well maintained and comfortable 4* hotel (9 floors, 200 rooms) is located on the Lopburi river bank. It is our fourth stay in this hotel since 1998 and, yes, the hotel becomes a little bit older but is still the best of Ayutthaya (in my opinion). We tried out 5 other hotels in the city, but Krungsri is my favorite, certainly if you come by train. For those coming by car : free large onsite parking.
Our spacious carpeted room (7.6x3.7m = 28m², including bathroom) was comfortable, very clean, and quiet at night. Excellent bed. Good and silent airco, flatscreen TV. Bathroom normal size and clean, combo bath-shower. Complimentary : good Wifi, mini fridge, no coffee nor tea making facility. Most rooms have river view, more or less, depending of the distance between your room and the river.
Swimming pool is surprisingly “refreshing” (=cold) due to the location of the pool : right in the shadow of the northside of the hotel. Sometimes there are some pigeons drinking at the pool but never became a real problem like some other reviewers suggest.
Good and varied buffet breakfast, western and asian food, bacon, egg station, etc … Also the daily lunch buffet is worthwhile for only 300bt/pp. And take your diner at the cosy garden restaurant on the banks of the Lopburi-Pasak river (but not cheap according to thailand standards). Or take the Krungsri Princess riverboat for an exciting evening dining cruise.
Tip : bikes for rent near the trainstation (40bt/day); cross Pasak river by little ferry for only 4bt/pp and cycle 1,5km to the temples of the old cit
