“Nice place to stay”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

Very cute and clean place to stay. May not be the warmest people running the place, but they aren't rude. They also help arrange a tuk tuk to pick you up.

Construction outside of our window/room was happening, which was a little of an intrusion, but I may stay here again.

Price, cleanliness and amenities are worth the return and a recommendation.

This is my favourite guesthouse I have stayed in so far. Such a quirky little place, with sweet staff and in close range to great food and temples. I love the set up of this place, it feels like staying in a large treehouse! I wish I had stayed here for more than one night.

Really enjoyed staying in this warm and friendly hostel, and very much wish we could have stayed longer, but two nights in Ayyuthuya is sufficient to see all the sites. The room was very nice with all mod cons, something that was very unexpected for the price of the room. The communal facilities were also well thought out and showed the care given to guests by the hosts. The hosts themselves were always so happy and accommodating, and arranged all trips for us with no problems. Even though the Tamarind does not include breakfast, there is a great place around the corner, which does excellent food. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and would have loved to stay longer. The hostel is in a great location, just across the road from a major site and the house itself is wooden and charming.

Really great guesthouse with better amenities than I was expecting for the price (good air-con, flat-screen TV). Beautifully decorated with a nice outdoor area, and in a good location in Ayyuthuya. The owners are also incredibly helpful and will book taxis and tuk tuks for you.

The only downsides are that they don't offer breakfast (though there's a cafe next door which does cheap food) and it can be a little noisy, since it's a pretty old house. On the whole, though, it's excellent.

Firstly I should say that we did not stay here. We booked to stay at the Tamarind for 3 nights in mid January thru' Agoda, can you imagine when we arrived to be told that the booking had been made for March & the Guest House was full. We were jokingly told to come back next month.

Som the manageress was extremely sympathetic & helpful. She offered us chilled bottled water, enquired next door, then she got on the phone, finally finding an alternative a few minutes walk away. She insisted on arranging a tuk-tuk to take us there (at her expense). We found her very understanding & helpful and are very grateful, after arriving tired we didn't need the inconvenience or worry of chasing around for somewhere else to stay. Full marks to Som, from what we saw we would have loved to have stayed there.

The booking issue was ultimately resolved with Agoda.

Once we read about this place on Tripadvisor we knew we had to stay here and it does live up to all of the praise. Our room was spare but had a big cozy bed and split level bathroom. It opened out into a shared terrace which would have been a nice place to relax with some beers if it weren't for the mosquitoes. The walls are paper thin and we were woken up early by the sound of our neighbors checking out at 6am. Nevertheless we were very happy with the accommodations, location and the very gracious hosts.

We absolutely loved this place!! The location can't be beat, right across from some of the main ruins. But better yet are the hosts! They are so friendly and absolutely adorable! The place is clean well kept, great location did I mention friendly? They have a deck that is so nice to sit on and visit at the end of a day. I would highly recommend this place. Nange and Gao (Excuse the miss spellings). I miss you! Theresa
