Somjai Place Ayutthaya Reviews
Ok, clean place Dec 12, 2012
Somjai Place-Ayutthya-600 BHT x 3 nights, 450BHT for 5th night =Double room, Ensuite- Breakfast not inc. Location, very good, being the right end of town for the National Park, night market and Tescos round the corner of the next road. Plenty of good access, but not any better than other cheaper places two streets behind us. Check in was easy and we were shown to a very clean and spacious room. Ensuite bathroom was very clean with walk in wet room and western WC + sink. We had aircon and a fridge and TV with Thai channels. There was also a luxury item that I have not had in any of our rooms thus far of a soft and comfy sofa. As the room was so large this was a welcome relax point and very much appreciated. Fresh, 2 bottles of glass bottled water was left outside our room like the milkman would leave milk, every day. We had our room cleaned and towels changed on request at any time, we chose day two! All done perfectly.
We did hire bicycles off Somjai for one set of 6hrs, as he charges 50BHT each bike for 6hrs. Other establishments and cycle hire places hire for the day or 24hrs. Second time we hired bikes we hired them from the little café by the ferry crossing point, just as you get off the small boat that crosses you into “old Town”. So be aware that there are better deals to be had than Somjai for this service. We also found that his tours and trips were a lot more expensive than many of the other tour offers around town, so would not recommend his tours to anyone. Example tour up river to see 3 Temples/Wats Somjai was double the price of other places, we got it through the same place we hired the second lot of bicycles by the ferry drop off, No brainer really.
Nice, clean and quiet place to stay, they accommodated us wanting an extra night easily after checking availability (to be expected). Courteous and polite and helpful with information at all times.
