Reviewed July 24, 2013

Great view of the river. The room is huge and comfortable. Great value for money. Best buffet especially the boat noodle is the best in town. The hotel also has boat ride for dinner which has a stunning view of the river and temples.

The room was big but very old! Useless kitchen with with no water faucet. The "view"? ok there is a view on the river as it is mentioned by the name of this hotel, but really doesn't worth anything! And the price!!! 2000 THB for one night. I felt stollen when i left.
Then, they have men in front of the building who are supposed to secure the area... They were actually scary. One of them split twice in front of my girlfriend while I was trying not to be stollen by the tuc-tuc driver.

Plus, the breakfast was very very bad. Everything was disgusting.
Don't waste your money and go somewhere else. There are a few guest houses that are cheaper and very clean.

I am writing this review from my hotelroom in this hotel. It is really not a bad place. It is situated on the river in a quiet area, close to some restaurants. If you want to go to the centre, there are Tuk Tuk's available to bring you there. The rooms are large, with everything you need. Good TV reception, also from outside Thailand. The bathrom is some outdated, and could need some maintenance. But i like the place and it is not expensive if you compare it with the other large hotels her. There are enough parking places, wifi in the rooms, good working aircons, so if you need more or more luxury you pay more too.

This hotel is located by the river so I had spectacular river views from my room. This means that the hotel is about 1 mile away from the centre of the town where the historic sites and the main shopping area are located. It costs about 30 to 50 baht to get to the centre via tuk tuk. The rooms were very large and well-decorated but the bathroom and the corridors were a bit dated and not well-maintained. The bathroom was functional and usable but the decor had not been maintained and showed signs of wear and tear. However, the hotel had a restaurant which served excellent food. The hotel is also near the train station. I enjoyed being far away from the bustle of the centre of town at the same time as being a tuk tuk ride away from the centre. The staff were really helpful and gave me a map of the town. When my shoes tore and my suitcase broke, the staff helped me to go to the shopping mall and buy replacements.
I could not find another hotel in Ayuthaya to stay in at short notice but I found this place a good place to stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view

Although, the restaurant at the back is actually quite nice with a lovely view, the hotel itself is very disappointing. When I ask if I could use the safe - because there is one in the room about the size of a fridge- I was told that none of the rooms in the hotel have a safe in working conditions... When I went to see the gym, it was literally in the corridor with equipment the Flintstones may have used. No wonder this was the last hotel available in town with the Lima Hotel

Room Tip: River view but I guess, the hotel name is self explanatory

Do not expect a luxury resort. The rooms are like large caverns and huge - but of a 2.5 star category. Which is exactly what we expected But what was most disappointing is there was NO tourist information whatsoever. Which one should expect when staying in a UNESCO World Heritage City. Absolutely nothing in the room - and reception information was all in Thai. Staff were not helpful at all. Would I stay here again - for this reason alone - NO.

Despite having made a prepaid booking the receptionist tried to send us to another hotel claiming they were fully booked. This soon turned out not to be the case & eventually we were given the riverside room we had booked. The rooms are large but felt soulless. The general state of the hotel's decor is dated & in need or refurbishment. The floor in the dining room was unswept from the previous night's function, all in all the standard of cleanliness would benefit from improvement. We did not enjoy our stay at this hotel, it serves its function but was the worst place we stayed at in our time in Thailand.
