Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The guest house is located in a quiet side street just off the main road opposite two of Ayyuthayya’s main wats. It’s probably the closest guest house to Mahatat and Ratchaburana. Constructed mainly of wood it feels very old but a member of staff told us it is less than 20 years old (though that could have lost something in translation).Our room was on the first floor, clean and simply furnished with a long enclosed balcony with rack for clothes drying. There are nice seating areas around the guest house and free coffee, toast and fruit on a morning. The lady owner is friendly and helpful, she speaks good English and arranged a mini bus to Kanchanaburi for us and also the obligatory sunset boat trip which was actually very good and worth the money. Downsides- due to the wood construction, noise tends to travel between rooms. If you have noisy neighbours you may need ear plugs to sleep. On our 2nd night, with all surrounding rooms occupied we had no noise. On the previous night we were disturbed by people talking loudly and what sounded like someone coughing up furballs. People need to be considerate when staying in wooden buildings, unfortunately some aren’t. There are a few bars and restaurants within walking distance but Ayyuthayya is quite spread out with no defined nightlife/tourist area and we found tuk tuks quite expensive compared to Bangkok. There are bikes available at the guest house for a small fee and they can arrange scooter rental. In summary its a nice place, helpful owner, close to main historical sites and very enjoyable if you get considerate neighbours!

Perfect location just in front of some of the main temples. A beautiful place with a lovely terrace, spacious and clean rooms, great mattresses and amazing bathrooms. Tea, coffee + fruits or amazing banana bead for breakfast included. The owners are the friendliest and made our stay unforgettable. They are always smiling and always happy to help - they offered fresh coconuts to all guests, gave us a banana bread baking lesson and even drove us to the train station! Thank you so much for our stay! :)

We had a wonderful stay at Tamarind Guesthouse. It has a lot of charm and character, and the room was large, comfortable and very clean. It is in a great location, across the street from Wat Mahathat, and tours to see the other ruins by boat or tuk-tuk can be organized at the guesthouse. The woman who runs Tamarind was incredibly helpful, and went out of her way to help us arrange transportation to our next destination of Phimai. I would highly recommend staying at Tamarind.

We stay one night in the family room. The room was simple and charming. My children loved climbing over the stairs and found it looks like a tree house.
I thought that breakfast was not included but was nicely surprised when I saw that they provide free coffee and a basic breakfast.
The location is unbeatable just opposite to all the main temples and close to restaurants and night market.
The lady who manages the guesthouse was nice. She booked for us tuk tuk and boat trip, recommended restaurant and rented bikes for us to visit temples.

We had an amazing experience staying at Tamarind, the rooms are very cosy and characterful, the whole house is beautiful and smells of teak wood. The owners are the friendliest and most helpful people we have met-they went out of their way for us and we ended up staying longer than expected. They even gave our kids a lovely snack for the bus journey when we left! Great value and couldn't ask for more-really made our stay in Ayutthaya very special. Thanks Tamarind!

A quirky guesthouse in an excellent location for the temples and night market . We stayed in superior room A which was clean. Special thanks to the friendly staff. We did not score 5 stars because we could not pay using a credit card. It was cash only. Stairs and steps may be an issue for some people to stay here.

Tip: book in advance. Always full.
Note: If Tamarind is fully booked don't get their advice to stay in Haven Park. Awful place. Low quality. Very poor. Dirty. Bad vale for money. The opposite of Tamarind. Check my review and pics about that if you are considering it.
Pros: spectacular rooms, very clean, extremely nice and helpful owners (they are amazingly kind), great location (next to the temples), great value for money.

The hotel i being renovated and it's already spectacular. We stayed in the suite and we highly recommend it. Beautiful decor and amenities. Very clean.
The owners are VERY attentive and kind. They really care about customers.
I loved this hotel.

This charming little guesthouse is situated in the heart of the old city and deserves all the praise it's receiving. Having suffered like everybody during the recent floods, the owners do their best to create a cosy atmosphere and how do they succeed... The room is completely covered in wood and is simply adorable ( small tip: check the pillows) :-), but equally the outdoor bathroom is absolutely wonderful. The owners fit perfectly in this picture as they dropped by after their working day to make sure everything was okay and offering us a snack. And even though they offer no breakfast, in the small hall between the rooms, you'll find a toaster, bread, jam and coffee... Just around the corner are already some temples, so our advice: stay at Tamarind .

I stayed here for two nights 8th and 9th July 2017. Double room en-suite.
What a wonderful little guest house....tucked down an alley way just across the main road from many of the ruins. Check in was very quick and within minutes i knew this was going to be a relaxed visit.

Tamarind is a small, family run guesthouse with a real welcoming vibe. I was greeted at all times with a big smile and friendly conversation. The staff were quick to help me plan my stay and organise places to eat as well as a boat trip on my second night.

My room was large, comfortable and spotlessly clean with good air-con. The bed was excellent, perfect for a good rest after walking around the ruins all day.

Tea, Coffee, Fruit and cookies are available 24hrs and there are lovely areas to sit around the guesthouse to just chill and enjoy the ambience.

I would happily stay here again if I visit Ayutthaya and can wholeheartedly recommend Tamarind.

Hi, this is the info I received with my reservation: Tel: 66890100196 or Email: tamarindthai2012 At gmail Is there a way for you to arrive a little later? If you arrive at the train station, there might be a few open vendors for a coffee and food, I would hang out there until 7-ish and then take a tuk tuk to Tamarind. Address: 11 Moo 1 Chikul Road, ท่าวาสุกรี, อยุธยา, ประเทศไทย It is right across from the temple entrance with the Buddha face in the tree. It's at the left end in an alley. Act as if you've been there before, the ride should be no more than 80 baht! Have a great time and say hello to the owners Neang (husband) and Koy (wife) from Monique and Sarah!
