Bann Kunpra is a 100 year old teak mansion by the river in ayutthaya. I decided to book this since i wanted to stay somewhere old and authentic in ayutthaya and this was as old as you can get. After an exhausting day with the elephants at the royal elephant kraal, we checked in to Ban Kunpra.
The first order of the stay of course was to scare the crap out of each other. Then we proceeded to fight over who sleeps on the side of the bed where the creepy transvestite painting can watch your every move. After kicking brian over to HIS side of the bed and discovering a peeping tom outside our window, we joined the hotel staff in hunting down the now missing poisonous snake that someone found in the garden earlier. We checked out the outhouse (toilet and bath were outside the mansion) and decided that not taking a bath for a day is sometimes good foy your health, especially if this is where a certain bright green snake may be hiding. We played with a shih tzu the size of a coke bottle and ate the tastiest egg flavored crepe in the world (the one in front of the nearest 711), and finally went to sleep.
The room we got was 650 Baht. it had no aircon but the river breeze was cool enough for a comfortable sleep. the room was a little dark mostly due to the wood's dark finish. The bed was high enough for you to break you neck if you fall off it and our private balcony was old enough to collapse if you so much as breathed on it.
The main balcony and riverside restaurant offered a great view by the river too. there were large kois swimming about in a pond which brian attempted to murder by feeding sago, and an idoor cofeehouse where no one wants to sit. Who wants to stay inside when you have a a riverside patio?
f you want fun and adventure and have an insurance policy, skip the boring hotels and try Ban Kunpra Instead.
This place was the cheaper option that I went for. I took the single room which comes with a fan, a private room to myself and share bath room/toilet. No complains whatsoever.
Double Room 160
Single Room 100
Aircondition with attached bathroom
Fan with attached bathroom
When I and my friend were send to worked at Ayuthaya, First our staff office reserve room for us at Big hotel.But this hotel is too old and expensive.Thus we decide to stay only one night and looking for new place.This motel situate not far from the old one,But new facility and room are clean with air condition and shower room inside. First they quote us 500 Thai-bath for 2 persons per night.but after we bargain they discount to 400 Thai-bath for 2 persons per night ,because we stayed at this motel for 12 days.
New facility Clean and Cheap.Convenient Transportations. Staff can speak English.The Motel situate in Bus Terminal Center and near Marketplace easy for transportation and looking for something to eat. Their are Weekend Market from 5 PM. in Friday Saturday and Sunday in front of motel.
My favorite place to stay in Ayutthaya. If you like Thai wooden house. River view. Unique style of decoration. Home-feeling. Here's the place you should consider staying. And price is reasonable (about 600 Baht for fan room,twin,double, shared bathroom) Downstairs serving Thai cuisine.
The house is really old, very classic. He applied it from his family's house. The owner himself is an artist. Location is real charming. You can chill out on the balcony overlooking the river view and temple. Bathrooms are very clean.
Suan Luang hotel is very nice, clean and cheap place - only 500 baht for double room with a/c and shower (no breakfast). Mostly it is used by Chinese students, so this is not the place you will meet a lot of backpackers from Western countries.
On my 2nd visit to Ayutthaya, I decided to take on Andy's (nickname leonik) advice to stay at Amporn Floatel Guesthouse. You bet it was awesome! It's cheap and relaxing! Thank you Chuty for providing such a great accomodation! The mosquitos were quite harmless to me and after the 5-7pm, the mosquitos disappeared. Other than the occassional huge water hycin (is that how you spell it? anyway, it's some huge plant floeating) which you might mistake it for a monster, it's pretty cool to stay there. And there are nearby food stalls and shops etc. I highly recommend this place. Wished I had stayed a night longer.
Great views of the canal - and maybe you could borrow a boat to row to the other side of the canal.
On check-out morning with Chutima (VT ID: Friday22)...
Thanks for your help, Chuty!
You've made my brief stay at your floatel really enjoyable!
I'd chanced upon this place while browsing through the forum...
It's a really neat place to stay!
THB 200 gets you a single room per night while for THB 300 you'll get a spacious double room per night.
It has a really COOL patio/balcony/chill out area... and it really lived up to my expectations.
Just bring mosquito repellent or request for mosquito coils.
The manager of the floatel, Chutima, is a VT member as well! Her VT ID is Friday22. :-)
As it's docked on the Pasak River, you get a really good view of village life along the river...
The patio's just superb for chilling out with snacks bought from the nearby night market (just 3 minutes walk).

Sun Rise Place gave us so much more than we expected. From the moment we arrived they bent over backwards to make us comfortable and happy. A new building with nice big rooms and private bathrooms, very comfortable beds and friendly staff. They also have a bar/ restaurant adjoining and are well located right near the major bus stop.
Our Ayutthaya experience was made all the more memorable by our choice of accommodation. Based on a Lonely Planet reccomendation and our hope for a cheap place to stay, we decided on PS Guesthouse. PS is located on a side road, not far from Wat Ratburana. the room we had for three of us contained a double bed and small fan. the bathroom was a squat toilet with tank and a small bucket for showering, and a tub outside near the sink with "fresh water for washing face". Not exactly five star, but it had character and cost us 180Baht for the night.
There is a communal area outside the main building, with small outdoor kitchen, tables and chairs. Mr Toy, one of the staff, has a variety of games which he pulls out for all the new guests. In the evening, many of the guests congregate here to enjoy a few Chang beers and get to know their fellow travellers.
The lady who runs the place is very passionate about Ayutthaya, and will give you some good advice about what to see and do. She organises some group outings, such as dinner at the night markets.
This accommodation is definately for those who don't mind roughing it a little. The locals rise early, so a quiet nights sleep usually isn;t on the cards. If you're looking for something a little more special, take the time to look around. Having said that, PS has a loyal following and it has a great communal feel. I'd certainly try it again.
