More on Ayutthaya

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

Travelfish says:

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.
