Good Luck Guesthouse

Good Luck Guesthouse offers a more laidback atmosphere and a more welcoming staff than Tony’s Place, which is directly across the street.

The private fan rooms, in particular, are possibly the best-value options in town for those on a shoestring budget.

The yellow concrete building is fronted by a large ground floor with a tour and travel desk, restaurant, laundry area and reception. All of this blends together as guests sip on fresh coffee and cold beer after taking advantage of the consistently fair-priced services, including bicycle and motorbike rental. The place has somewhat of a dishevelled feel, but that’s not a bad thing if you prefer more of a homely atmosphere. Located on upper floors and accessed by stairs, rooms come in two types: dirt-cheap fan editions relying on clean shared bathrooms with hot water, and good-size air-con rooms with long and narrow private wet bathrooms. Small fan rooms come with tiny windows, firm beds and little more than a moveable fan on the hardwood floors -- not too shabby for the price. Air-con editions bag you comfier beds along with desks, larger windows and even some paintings of old-time tropical scenes.

Good Luck has never been full when we’ve stopped by, making it a good plan B or C if there’s no vacancy at your first choices. The location puts you smack in the middle of Soi Farang, so expect some party noise after dark.

Founded in 1350 by King Uthong, the Siamese capital at Ayutthaya was one of Asia’s grandest cities until Burmese forces overran it in 1767. What remains of the ancient temples and palaces is now essential viewing for history-inclined travellers -- or anyone who might enjoy a stroll through impressive ruins.
