Located towards the northeast corner of the island, several backpacker oriented guesthouses are clustered on Naresuan Soi 1, which is a convenient walk to the bus and minibus stops or train station, but about a kilometre from the most popular ruins. Other than Chao Phrom market, the area itself is not particularly interesting. A number of excellent guesthouses are also scattered through town, including a few very close to the ruins. Overall, competititon among guesthouses is stiff in Ayutthaya and great quality rooms can be scored for less than half of what you'll pay in Bangkok.
