TravelPod Member ReviewsAyutthaya Grand Hotel
Very large room and huge pool but unfortunately this once grand hotel is now needing some updating. It's a little bit further away from the main tourist area but fortunately transport is cheap and easy. The restaurant was very nice. We were very comfortable here.
