          Better than we had even expected!”

          view from room, excellent service with a smile, free use of bicycles, location adjacent to historical park

          Having read other traveller reviews of this lovely hotel, I had quite high expectations upon arrival. But the reality exceeded even these high expectations! The view from our room was breathtaking, the staff couldn't do enough to ensure that we left Ayutthaya (and the Iudia!) wanting desperately to return, and the location was just a few hundred meters from the entrance to the Historical Park. What does this mean? that it is possible to cycle to Ayutthaya's main attractions along roads and paths with very little traffic. The only downside of our visit was one out of the hands of the hotel -- there is a construction site right next door. Although the workers finished by late afternoon (5 or 6), they did somewhat interfere with our enjoyment of the beautiful private deck immediately outside our front door. We had a magical 3 days, 2 nights at the Iudia, and will definitely be back!

          great place to stay and relax”

          great place
          none

          My husband and I showed up at Iudia in March 2010 without a reservation, had iced cappuccinos in the coffee shop, a nice chat with the staff about their coffee machine, and ended up staying three nights! The Iudia was a great surprise in Ayutthaya after our less-than-okay hotel in Sukhotai, and I was ready to move in. We ended up booking through agoda.com on my iPhone because the rate was cheaper than what the staff could offer. They were completely fine with this, and they showed us two fabulous rooms. We chose the upstairs room, with walls on three sides mostly made of windows, a huge vaulted ceiling, a balcony, and antique wood doors. The room had two ACs, so the heat was not a problem with all the glass. Our room locked at the bottom of the stairs, so we had a private staircase. Best of all, we had a view of the river and a beautiful ancient temple site across the river, which was illuminated at night. We loved the décor, which the staff explained, was a fusion of a traditional Thai teak house to appeal to Western guests, and modern to appeal to Thai guests. Our room had a ton of lights – six glass lamps hanging from the ceilings, lights in the floor, several lamps, a fluorescent reading light behind the bed, etc. – and some with dimmers. We played with getting the light exactly right! (There is a master switch, so you can turn them all off at once.) There was also a mysterious knob that we turned to discover was mellow background music in a pleasant spa/yoga studio/world music/lounge music genre. There are only eight rooms, so we never saw more than two other tourists at a time. We had the pool to ourselves, which we used twice a day. Once, there were two other tourists using the lounge chairs. Breakfast was nice, in the inner courtyard. They let us order off of the coffee shop menu, so we had two iced cappuccinos each at no extra charge. A few times, we bought fruit, and the staff was happy to cut it for us.

          If you want to experience the culture and tranquillity of old Siam then IuDia on the River is it.”

          Being a world traveler for both business and pleasure I have stayed in hotels from 0 stars to 10 stars.If there was a higher rating than 10 iuDia deserves it.This being my first time to Ayutthaya and knowing it's very rich heritage I wanted to stay in a place that reflected the values and traditions of this once great capital that was destroyed by Burmese approximately 700 years ago.IuDia offers that with a selection of deluxe rooms or suites with all the modern comforts of today.Each of them are tastefully decorated by the owners collection and passion for antiques with a different theme based on Thai culture..Since there are only a few deluxe room and suites the service is very personal of the highest standard that would put larger chain hotels to shame.They face the river where you have a 24-7 view of the ancient ruins from your sleeping area,living area,outdoor pool area or terrace.If you choose a breakfast option of American or Asian you will be fueled up ready for touring.

          Beautiful little hotel with stunning views”

          We loved this little hotel and will return next time we are in Ayutthaya. The location is perfect, staff are friendly, rooms are clean, breakfast was awesome and view from the pool area is spectacular. One downside is the number of mosquitoes but we had this issue all over Thailand. One huge positive for this hotel is that they do not let people in that are not staying here unlike a neighbouring place with a similar view. They let people come in and take photos or visit the restaurant, where as iuDia is more exclusive and secure.

          room was spotless and really comfortable after a long ride from bangkok.

          Nice pool. Friendly and courteous staff. Great place. I will Mosdef go back. Great rooms. Quiet. Beautiful outdoor ensuite bathrooms. Property is very close to the main temple complexes. Sits right on the river, great river view. Really nice American breakfast. If you're a vegetarian, let them know or you will get eggs bacon and sausage on your plate. A really, really nice comfortable place. I've been to Thailand 25 times probably and have a few hotels that I like to go to. The Iudia is now a part of that list. Next trip j will stay here again. 2 small complaints. 1st, from the street, the hotel is hard to find. It appears to be a cafe from the street. I was standing right next to it and had to ask where to go. 2nd, although my experience with the staff was great, I asked 1 lady to point me to a bicyle store to buy tubes. I had 3 flats coming from Bangkok. She informed me that there was no store in town 5 hat would sell tubes, only bike rental stores. It took me 5 minuts to late tubes. This was a non issue but a pet peeve...don't give misinformation so confidently. Especially when it is obviously false. Ayutthaya has a plethora of bikes for rent and is a very popular destination for cycling from Bangkok. You might have to look, but there is at least 1 really well stocked bike shop with competent service techs/owners. English isn't great but hella better than my Thai!

          HOME away from home...”

          Extremely comfortable (with a pool). Very personalised services. Great breakfast. Near to Tesco/7-11 and mobile food vendors. Located within the old city itself.
          Can't think of any.

          The name of this small serviced residence is a "word play" of how Ayutthaya was named in the past (i.e., Ayudhya). I-U-Dia has this homey feel. It makes me feel great returning this serviced residence after a tiring day exploring Ayutthaya and nearby towns (e.g., Lopburi and Bang Pa-in). Staff are generally competent and very genuine. They are very warm and volunteered a great deal of information without much prompting from me. The room is spacious. Although without a bathtub, they choose to build toilets in open air (with high walls of course, exposing only the top). It has this very natural feel. TV offers quite a reasonable selection for English-speaking tourists. You can choose HBO, CineMax or BBC. Instead of buffet, they offer a set breakfast, western style. Although it's rather simple, you can tell they put in a lot of effort in making sure all the details are taken care of. Locating in the old city itself, there is a Wat located just behind the residence, across the river. Some of the key attractions are within walking distance (about 30-60 minutes walk). If not, staff in hotel will help to arrange tuk-tuk. I paid B200 per hour. Though slightly on the high side, the friendly tuk-tuk driver offers some cash-back towards the end. All in all, a great stay. Would definitely go back again if I ever visit Ayudhya.

          Amazing place to stay”

          Beautiful hotel, beautiful view

          The front of the Iudia hotel looks as though it's just a coffee-house, but don't be put off, the inside is amazing. The rooms are huge and beautifully decorated with a moroccan/eastern theme. It is perfectly located for visiting the temples and the boat for the boat tour pulls up at the hotel's own pier at the bottom of the garden. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating. The food in the coffee-house was wonderful. The breakfast was extremely tasty. This is one of the nicest hotels we've ever stayed in and would never stay anywhere else whilst in Ayutthaya.

          A gorgeous hotel in Ayutthaya...”

          We had a simply lovely time at IuDia. It is a beautiful hotel with a lovely staff. I became ill while on our journey to Ayutthaya, and the hotel staff was so wonderful to both me and my family. They even asked if they could take me to see a doctor. The hotel rooms are gorgeous and the pool is amazing. You truly cannot find a better place in Ayutthaya. I could not recommend it more.

          Location, staff, pool

          This was my second visit to Ayutthaya, but my first time at Iudia On The River. If I return for a third visit I will not stay anywhere else. We stayed in the river view terrace room and loved it. The view across the river is one of the best in Ayutthaya. The staff were lovely and breakfast was nice. A warning though don't eat at the establishment next door (Sala), have a drink but then leave after the sun has set!

          Quiet, peaceful little boutique hotel by the river”

          Quiet and personalised service from the staff. Hotel almost in mint condition, being less than 1.5 years old.
          No full restaurant - only coffee and sandwiches available. However, not a big issue as there are a lot of street hawker fare along that road.

          Iudia is a small boutique hotel with 8 rooms. Situated next to the river with its back to Wat Phutthaisawan, you get a nice view of the old temple. Service is excellent and the staff strives to please. If you like a quiet stay and away from the bustle of big hotels, this is definitely the hotel to stay in Ayutthaya.

          Amazing hotel”

          Quiet and small. Beautiful view.

          iudia on the river is an amazing hotel. small and tidy you can guarantee that you won't be fighting hordes of vacationers at the breakfast restaurant. the rooms are very spacious and there is a beautiful view of a temple across the river. the breakfast is amazing and if you have stayed in thailand before you know that most breakfast are just dinner leftovers. however, iudia has a wonderful breakfast which is ordered and includes everything you need to start the day. i would have to say that the biggest drawback is the location. they are a bit of a distance from the temple ruins but that shouldn't stop you since you can get bikes at the hotel to explore the city at your own pace or you can have the staff get a taxi to take you anywhere you go without the burden of having to negotiate your price. i would really recommend this hotel because the hotel does all the little extra things that you would expect. mosquito coils at night to protect your place and friendly staff to help you with any issue.

          Iudia on the River is a beatiful and peaceful hotel on the bank of Chao Pharaya River. We really did enjoy our stay in this cosy hotel. The view from the pool is just wonderful. I really did like the outdoor toilet and shover. We will absolutely revisit this hotel when in Ayutthaya.

          This has been our favourite hotel for years in Ayutthaya. From most rooms and from the garden/pool areaat the riverside you have a stunning view to some of the beautiful temples in Ayutthaya. (Lightened up in the evening). High standard of all hotel rooms - severaø of them very large too.

          WONDERFUL experience at Iudia Hotel - must try”

          very, very friendly and personal service, full american breakfast available (rare in Ayuttaya), rooms are tastefully and elegantly decorated.
          none, really. For a boutique hotel, this is pretty much as good as you can get. No spa nearby. (but coffee shop is nice hangout to read)

          We went to this newly opened hotel without high expectation. The pictures on the web look very nice, but we have travelled enough to know that this can be deceiving. We were very surprised that what we got is more than what the photos said. The room was very nicely decorated, with very tasteful design (display cupboards, chandelier, big tub. It was my birthday so my husband ordered extra roses in the room. But they put in the extra effort to put in rose petals in the bathroom and made me a cake!!! The staff was very helpful, from getting room service, to cooking a wonderful breakfast everyday. Because it is a boutique hotel, the place is quiet, so you can sit at the pool and enjoy a cup of coffee (which the staff will gladly bring over). We can look from the pool to the first temple in Ayuttaya across the river directly. It was very romantic at night. Almost everywhere you get views that fit for a postcard. For hotels of this type of quality and service, it can easily pass for 4-5 stars hotels in other places. Some people take a day trip from Bangkok, but I would suggest staying a night here to wind down and to recapture the romanace, relaxing atmosphere, and calmness in your life. I have stayed in anything from 1 star hotels to 6 star hotels. Iudia is by fat the one that I feel very impressed. It far exceeded my expectation. From a very satisfied customer.

          Paradise in Ayutthaya”

          Scenic view, fantastic service, wonderful ambiance

          we were simply blown away the moment we entered iudia. the ambiance was so relaxing and surreal and it felt like a tranquil oasis in this ancient city. we stayed in the skeikh ahmad room, and it was very spacious and meticulously decorated. it also has a spectacular view of the temple across the river the large windows that spanned the entire wall. the hotel also features a private pool which we used everyday to relax and cool down. as for food, the breakfast was hearty and amazing, consisting of a variety of fresh local fruit, toast and eggs etc. the cafe which serves breakfast is also open till 9pm in case you would like some small or big bites anytime of the day. but the most memorable thing about iudia has to be the service which is so attentive and thoughtful. the staff there are really very helpful and personable, and really went all the way to take care of all our needs. they helped us to hire a guide and a masseuse, recommended which sights to see and explained to us anything that we were unsure about. their warmth really made our stay an amazing one, and we were really reluctant to leave when our time was up.

          A relaxing mini break just a hour from Bangkok”

          The hotel's location is definitely its forte. The staffs are also attentive and helpful. They would go out of their way to make sure your stay is memorable. The room is well appointed and designed.

          This was our second time staying at Iudia and it was just as memorable as the last one. The hotel is well maintained and still looks new despite it's being two years since our first visit. The staff were also very helpful and one of them (I forgot to ask for her name but she's presumably the supervisor) helped change the room to the one I asked for even if that meant that she had to work on reassigning the rooms for good half an hour. The only downside of this hotel might be the breakfast which doesn't offer a great variety of choices. (They choices between ABF and Thai breakfast, not a buffet breakfast.) However, this is usually the case with most boutique hotels anyway. All in all, it was a marvelous stay for both of us thanks to Iudia and its staff. Note The tamarind smoothie with plam sugar from the cafe is definitely worth trying.

          Eye-You-Dee-Are”

          Small, only has about 8 rooms. Very personal service, welcome refreshements. Beautiful rooms, and a lovely pool. The stand out thing for me was the robes are brilliant. Small touches everywhere like aromatic bouquets on doorhandles. Beautiful surroundings.
          Dining was a little bit far away in town but we presume that the cafe will eventually serve meals. Some of the staff had only limited english, but this will improve in time as it is a very new hotel - aside from that, we were in Thailand, so should expect to learn a little thai while travelling. The owner was away, and we understand that they would normally take care of the guests. The team that were there did an outstanding job.

          As it is a new hotel our taxi had some trouble finding it, until we realised it is not called Ludia, but Iudia. Our mistake. Once we arrived the staff couldn't do enough to help us. The setting is beautiful, looking out over one of the ruins accross the river. The rooms were lovely, very boutique hotel style and absolutely beautiful. We then freshened up and took to the pool, where the staff bought us some lovely welcome drinks and fresh fruits. During our stay they helped us a great deal organising Tuk Tuk's and transport for us for a better price than we could have arranged. This hotel is beautiful and we recommend anyone stay there.

          great riverside place in ayutthuya”

          Maybe I am slightly prejudiced because on arrival I was told that I had been upgraded to a (magnificent) suite, but there was not much not to like about the Iudia. Riverside location was very serene (the occasional karaoke river cruise notwithstanding), the staff was incredibly welcoming and friendly, there were free bikes (with baskets and locks) to use every day, breakfast in the cafe was splendid. The furnishings were remarkable: antique sculpture and ceramics everywhere, including several great pieces in (locked) glass cabinets in my room. I wish there was a more extensive dinner menu, though there are a few restaurants nearby; it would have been nice not to have to brave the traffic-choked roads with virtually no sidewalks every night in search of food. Other than that, a great place to stay.
