Beautiful Traditional Thai Mai - Sak house ”
Pros - beautiful traditional Thai property - Good quiet tranquil location on the river downtown - Easy to get a Tuk Tuk into Ayutthaya for 100 Thai Bart - Great restaurant “De Riva” right next door to the property - Near to some interesting historical sights & ruins - Breakfast was adequate - Lovely staff, a big shout out to Bonnie for making us feel so welcome & to her dog Manee for giving us such a lovely welcome when we arrived. Cons - the river is a working river with large noisy tugs transporting materials, sand etc late into the night, so take your ear plugs with you ! - The riverside villa room we had sadly didn’t have a mosquito net & with it being a traditional Thai house on stilts there were gaps between the floor boards that allowed mosquitos to get in our room during the night. So be sure to take mosquito coils to burn in your room or plug in mosquito repellants - I was very surprised that there was no fresh orange juice or any other kind of juice
Better than the rest in a quieter area”
We booked for 2 nights but ended up staying 5. Really peaceful location on the river with excellent staff. Even our small budget room had everything we needed. Breakfast was superb with a good choice. The beautiful teak building and decor are something special. Although further from the main sites than some places these were in easy reach by bikes or tuktuk. Also some of the more atmospheric minor temples and ruins are right next to the guesthouse. These are brilliant and you will usually have them to yourself. The area is an extensive public park with some great wildlife. Although set back from the main road this is a very busy and dangerous highway. The only shops and restaurants require walking along this road. There are also some aggressive dogs around the entrance (these appear to be a problem everywhere in Ayutthaya). Being so far out of town we think the price could be a little lower or the rather old single gear bicycles could free to use rather than 100 baht each per day.
Charming, beautiful and good value”
The Athithara Homestay is a beautiful, charming and fantastically located guesthouse right opposite Ayutthaya's magnificent historical parks. Really the location could scarcely be better. And the staff were utterly charming and helpful. Though their English is (very) limited and my Thai is rudimentary at best we still managed, somehow, to muddle through. The house itself is a fantastic traditional wooden Thai home. This has benefits and drawbacks. Firstly, it looks wonderful and the rooms are basic but really comfortable. However, the walls are simple wood paneling so you will hear what's going on next door :-) Also you will be sharing a bathroom. This is the one aspect of my entire stay with which I was less than overjoyed. Maybe I'm just spoilt. Overall though, would I go back. Yes. Yes, I think so. In retrospect, this is one of those stays where I will look back fondly and realize that it was far better than I suspected at the time.
Wood Lover's Dream”
We had a great time at Athithara. First, the father-daughter staff team are awesome. The daughter reached out to me to ask me if I wanted dinner recommendation. Plus, she set us up with a tuk tuk driver for the day who was great, big smile, and he took us around town. Very considerate. The father offered us a glass of wine with him in the evening. The wood inside our room was fantastic and made me feel like I was in a classic Asian boat. Finally, the river is nice setting and I could hear Muslim prayer singing in the distance, very beautiful. Interestingly, you can see mosque, temple and church all from the patio , looking over river. Big thumbs up. Good stay.
Beautiful place for families or couples.”
Came here for a night as a solo traveler seeking a quieter spot...the guesthouse is incredibly beautiful and on the river, and they lent me a bike to use to explore Ayutthaya on (be aware that this place is a bit out of the way compared to other places but it's still only a short bike or tuk tuk ride away from stuff). The daughter of the owner knows some English and they are both really wonderful people. Downside: didn't get any sleep because of the neighborhood dogs barking all night, the music from some nearby bar, and the non-soundproof walls. But then again I'm a light sleeper!
Authentic teak house with mod-cons!”
We had a lovely time! I think you'd need to either be fit enough to cycle anywhere or to rent a moped though, otherwise you'll need to hire tuk tuks to see the city. There's a lovely raised lounge (?) no name for it in English, overlooking the river. Once you chill out, watching the river traffic becomes an obsession!!! Very effective aircon, lovely comfy bed, clean bed linen and a HUGE fridge to put your fruit and beer in :) (If you stay, try Ban U Thong restaurant - it's fab, and the Ayutthaya Dessert Cafe a bit further down the road)
We stayed in Athithara Homestay a few days ago. We really liked the place, with clean rooms and friendly staff.
This hotel, I definitely recommend everyone to stay if you would like to attach yourself to the atmosphere of Ayutthaya as an ancient city and know more how Thai people live in the old day.
A Thai house feel right on river bank”
Visiting to an old city, Athithara gave us the old staying atmosphere. It located right on the riverbank. The main house is of a traditional teak house with a large hall surrounded by 6 guest of various size rooms which were equipped with comfortable mattress on the floor, nice linen, a mosquito net, LCD TV, a fridge, efficient A/C and strong wifi. The only downside is the shared bathroom. There are two of them, large, clean and easily accessible since they're at the center of the house. That's how it was traditionally anyway. There is a sitting hut over looking the Chaopraya River. We enjoyed sitting there watching the boating activities. The operator 'Une' was attentive and was very nice. She drove me out to a nearby motorbike shop. I picked up a bike with a very good price. We'll definitely return.
Nice enough place to stay”
This is a traditional Thai house near the centre of Ayutthaya. It's a nice place to stay, lots of wildlife around (including mosquitoes to bring spray!). Friendly staff although the breakfast wasn't too good, but that didn't matter really.
So good we came back”
Our second visit here. Love sitting watching the boats passing on the river and going for walks in the park. Staff are exceptional. Very helpful and friendly. Beautiful teak houses, great rooms and a superb big breakfast. Dogs along the road to the place are still a bit of a nuisance but not so much as before. Great riverside hideaway with bikes available to explore the main ancient sites a little further away (but the ones close by are free and also interesting). Staff will organise any transport, tickets, etc. that you need. Expect we will return again.
Its my second time in Ayuttaya also that homestay, its amazing place to stay, good value for the quality, there have amazing different's kind of views like front of the river also you have the views of the 3 differents church catholic musulim and thai temple in just one view, the sunset is unbelievable overthere i had a great time and really good feelings on this place. Thank you for that experience.
Absolutely beautiful ”
Gorgeous home in a beautiful location. We had a short stay but wish we could stay longer. Great riverside spot to hang out and watch the boats. Good sunset viewing. We rented bikes from the house and rode around town.
Overall is great!! I would definitely come back. LOVE the breakfast!! Just two things that need to be look at: 1. The Thai triangle pillow is quite stink 2. Shared bathroom is not super clean. May be it's just me but I have high expectation for the cleanliness of the bathroom of this price range (of all price ranges actually). I love clean bathroom, no MOLD!!
Wonderful place to stay”
Staffs were all friendly and helpful. I went during the weekdays so the place was pretty much peaceful. I only had minor issue with ants but it was taken care of after I informed the issue with a staff. I would certainly recommend this place especially for someone who love taking photos.
Very good Homestay”
We like this traditional Thai Homestay very much. Very helpfull and frendly Owners.
Quality of the guesthouse ”
It was very quiet and private place but there are many dogs along the street to the homestay.
Perfect, The best”
This without doubt are the best place to stay in Ayuttaya, I had an incredible experience and satisfaction in this place, the rooms were very clean and comfortable, an incredible vision of the river, the construction and architecture that place is fantastic,good breakfast and nice place to have a chilling beers in the end of day, thats really close to the main tourist places and night spots, all the people I met over there was very happy and always willing to help. thank you for this incredible time there
Very nice hostel, beautiful Thai house, clean and neat”
Highly recommended for relaxation by the river! Location is not quite walkable to the center of sightseeing, but there are tuk-tuk, bicycle, and motorbike you can travel around the city. Staffs are friendly and helpful. I really love this place, nice windy and chilling, peaceful hostel. Price is a bit higher than others but worth it.
I've never experienced more value for the money. Beautiful property with accommodating staff! ”
The owner and his daughter were so accommodating helping me with my bags up the stairs. Introducing me to all facilities and offering to set up travel to any attractions or terminal I may need during my stay. Anyone who gives less than perfect scores for this property, given it's location and price, deserves to have their opinions removed!
