Ayutthaya Guest House

When we last visited the Ayutthaya Guesthouse, the very laidback manager was so engrossed in listening to jazz music that he didn't notice we were standing in front of him for a good two minutes.

It's that sort of place -- chilled out, budget, a unique vibe and well-meaning but somewhat indifferent staff. We love the lobby/restaurant with its upright piano, exposed brick walls, random old radios lying around and great jazz and blues music always playing softly. Rooms upstairs and in the building next door are nothing to write home about, and said jazz-loving manager seemed almost apologetic about them, admitting that renovation plans fell behind after the massive loss of income that resulted from the 2011 flood. Still, the rooms are dirt cheap and they do have large windows, hardwood floors, ceiling fans and a sort of rawness that might appeal to budget travellers. They now also have air-con rooms with bizarre open bathrooms separated from the rest of the room by a scrappy brick wall. The guesthouse also runs the popular Street Lamp restaurant next door and rents out bicycles. WiFi is also free throughout.
