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.

Peaceful middle range hotel outside the city itself but easily reachable. You can rent a bicycle and explore the whole Ayutthaya and a map is available at reception. You can have free coffee and tea anytime and boiling water if you wish to prepare instant noodles. At hotel reception you can buy mineral water and basic easy food. The owner can fix you simple dishes. Breakfast is optional.

Once we arRived to that place the feeling about it was suddenly bad by the man who welcomed me and my family and an old lady who looks like to be the boss. They made us feeling really unwellcomed and like intruders in their place. We very tired and hardly i got option to see the room. Than suddenly the lady forced to pay money first ,in advance ,quickly and cash even if i explained that i wanted to stay more days,rent motobike and have tours and have meals in the place.So i wanted to have just one final bill. So I offered my passaport as guarantee for the bill,felt like a cheater ,treathed as a cheater but she insisted i MUST PAY IN ADVANCE EVERY SINGLE THING I WANT. Naturally.....after few minutes me and my family left that place with such unconfortable attitude and we moved 300 meters away and checked in in one more resort with very professional attitude. The funny thing of this story is that in the previous reviews about this place there is one with absolutly same object. Bad attitude of the owner about money. Ayutthaya is full of resort with very professional hoster. STRONGLY NOT RACCOMANDED

Responded 17 May 2019
Dear Vincenzo Thai. Thank you for you comment. We prefer the guests to pay when they arrived. As the family ran the place and sometimes it is busy during the check out time. That why we have set this policy. Thank you for understanding, Krittika

Maybe ok for backpackers looking for cheap rooms less than $8. Dirty bathrooms, leaky air con, trash filled surroundings, hazardous electrical wiring with exposed live wires. Very rude staff. We were on a long road trip covering Cambodia, Laos and Thailand. Ayyuthiya was a quick stop for us after a long two weeks journey. The people and the lodgings of Cambodia and Laos were so good that we expected a similar courteous behaviour...infact the place we stayed the previous night at Pak Chong, Ruan Kanchanok, set the bar very high and were a true model of Thai hospitality. But this run down Palace just ruined our vacation. 1.The behaviour of the staff ...mom and daughter runs the place I guess: We felt we were some kind of intruders into their home. The front office lady wanted to see the money first, a big sign even says you pay first. Of course we'll pay, at least have the courtesy to make us comfortable first, get off the phone and attend your guest? It was strange that their behavior towards white Western people were markdly different, maybe they were purposefully rude to non Western looking people and was trying to keep it exclusively for selected profiles of people. 2. We felt cheated The name: The Old Palace Resort and the posted pictures made us choose the place, hoping it will be a decent upscale family friendly place. Instead I found the place to be a broken down, dirty clump of rooms, banged up in a rotten old building, rot masked with putty and paint! Maybe the place is good for backpackers looking for cheap rooms less than $8/night. Absolutely not worth the money we spent. Room interior is a disaster waiting to happen with so many exposed live electrical wires, they obviously do not follow any electrical code. The hot water shower can electrocute you as it has open live wires joined up, the burnt plug sockets are a reminder of a fire hazzard in waiting. The exteriors of the place looks like trash cans dumped around. All of these would have been ok if the staff  knew even the basics of hospitality without discrimination: need not go to the heights of "Atithi-Devo-Bhava...that means Guest is GOD" they only need to be helpful and willing to own up their short comings. The air conditioning in the room leaked a tonne of water inside the room and soaked all our baggages and clothes. They were like, so what. The mother lady after several calls walked in like a jail supervisor, inspected the damage and walked away with an admonishing look in her face as if we made her air-conditioning to leak! After several attempts they asked us to collect all our stuff, wet and dry to be moved to another room. No help was offered, nor any apology, instead had the audacity to shout at us and say it's not their fault. "If you don't like it take your money and leave". They'd say the same if their rusted rotted old palace fell over our head or their unsafe electrical wiring starts a fire. No value is given to the money that's paid for their service. An understanding smile, an offer for help to make things right, and timely intervention to prevent things worsening is all that was needed. Instead they act like the queens of this rotten palace and we their low class subjects, we were have to do the extra work to get our comfort at their place, that too after paying top dollars! Clear

Dear Clearbluesky777, Thank your comment. Our Policy is our guests will pay the cost , after they check in. As we are family business and It is always busy in the next morning. so we are kindly ask our guests to pay before. After an accident, the leaking of air-conditioner, we have offered the guests a new room, but the guests rejected to move for a new room. We are also offered for drying all wet cloths and help with all baggage. Suddenly, we refused to serve them because the guests were being very impolite and overly rude. Thank you for your complain.

It is a very nice resort with extremely nice and helpful people. The rooms are nice and clean. It was cozy every evening during our stay. The resort is also close to several temples in Ayutthaya which you can visit by bike (rentable by the resort) or with the taxi/tuktuk. My girlfriend and me would definitely recommend this!

This hotel is family owned and operated. And this is also where they live. I was treated as a guest in their home. From the home cooking of "Jane", to the non-stop joyful "Bo", who was always ready to help in anyway that she could. From showing me her recommended spots to see, to arranging the river trip, to calling a Tuk Tuk for anything I needed. And arranging my onward bus trip and reserving me a seat. My room was spotless and the food was excellent. They have bicycles for hire but not my cup of tea so I didn't rent one. I had a wonderful experience here and if I ever return, it will be to here. And anyone I know who is traveling here will have my testament as their guide.

We had a great time with the family of our friend. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were good. Clean room with queen size bed, tv, air condition and nice bath. In the bathroom there are no showerdoors, so after showering the bath is mosty all wet.
