    A Buddhist temple more, nothing to do with the ruins of the ancient city, but good. To my I like more that has a little more history.

Where to stay in Ayutthaya

Boasting very popular sightseeing attractions, the city of Ayutthaya offers plenty of choice when it comes to accommodations. Encircled by rivers, the town center provides everything from budget guesthouse rooms to more exclusive hotels, occupying architectural landmarks from the colonial era. Outside of the center, expect to find motels and budget accommodation next to main roads, and pricier resorts and hotels nestled up to attractive rivers.
