“Good Hotel . . . but”
Reviewed 14 June 2010

I stayed at The Lima Place for 3 days in June 10 and found it to be a friendly and comfortable hotel especially for the price. B1100 for VIP room. But sadly the hotel is approx. 6-7 km from the railway station which is another 3 kms from the city. I would recommend the hotel if you have your own transport or on business, although the hotel offer car/motorbike/bicycle rental and a local bus passes regularly in the daytime for the average holidaymaker it is not ideal because of the location.
Added to that the price of taxis and tuk tuks in Ayutthaya is very high even the hotel charged B100 for the railway station one way trip. Much higher than in BKK.
Ayutthaya is well worth seeing for the Ancient City Heritage site but with a few exceptions there is nothing much to do, nightlife is sparce and the city is better seen on a day trip from BKK.
However I have no complaints about the hotel, good food and good service and I am happy to give it 4* but I could not recommend it.

Stayed June 2010, travelled solo

the hotel is average and a bit far from the main attractions in town. even though they rent bike with the heat in thailand i wouldn t rent one. the best way to get to town is to call a tuk tuk or to get the bus number 7 right across the street.

This nice little hotel offers very good value, considering the low prices and good quality of the rooms and service. The hotel is located a bit far from the center, though. But not to worry, the hotel has bicycles for rent for, if I remember correctly, 50 baht per day. The bicycle is a great means of transport for exploring the old city! The hotel provides car transport too, which isn't that expensive and "taxis" can be ordered too. Booking online was very swift. Ayutthaya is a pretty nice city with lots of cultural attractions and it isn't very touristic at all, at least it wasn't when I visited, which was in early november 2009. Not a bad stop on the way north to Chiang Mai (the trainstation for the sleeper train is very nearby). Have fun, Thailand is so sweet!

Needs some updated particularily the bathrooms. Was quiet and comfortable. Good meals at the restaurant. SOme people commented on this hotel being out of the way, we rented bikes and were in town in about 15 mins and were only a few minutes by tuktuk from the train station. Saw some other places on our bike ride , this was a good pick

The Lima Place is a little out of downtown Ayatthaya but in easy access of the relics and ancient temples that I was there to see. For me it was a peaceful spot, the room was clean,spacious and fairly quiet. The staff were very helpful...the resturant attatched served great food and the tariff was very reasonable...about $20aud/ night. English was not a problem,car, motorcycle and pushbike hire available...also internet facilities available on site. Bus 7 to and from town.

We found The Lima Place, Ayutthaya last minute on the internet at LateRooms.com and were hesitant because it had only one review. It turned out to be even better than that review led us to believe. The room was clean and everything worked well. The staff were very friendly and most helpful. The best part was the restaurant. The food was inexpensive like the rest of Lima Place but the dinner was one of the best I’ve had.
