“quite and comfortable, close the the park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The hotel consistes of single bungalows and rows of rooms built among lotus ponds, each with a covered deck area. You may think water equates to lots of mosquitos but that was not the case while we were there. The rooms were smallish but clean but did not have coffee/tea making supplies. Bathrooms were modern but the shower heads spayed a fine mist, plenty of hot water and worked well but not what I'm used to. The pool is a decent size and partly shaded for day long sun or shade and is long enough to swim laps. Sukhothai historical park is less than a mile away. You can rent bikes from the hotel for 50 baht/24 hours or you can walk to the park entrance and rent for 30 baht until 6:00pm. Biking is definitely the best means for getting around the park. Because of the location you are pretty much limited to eating at the hotel restaurant or the restaurant across the street or eat in old Sukhothai after/before visiting the park. Restaurant is OK and reasonably priced but nothing special. Breakfast was adequate, buffet style with the typical Thai take on an "American" breakfast (hotdogs for sausage, ham soaked in water, over easy eggs with omelettes made on demand) along with a couple thai vegetable or rice dishes, fruit, and toast. A few items like bacon or french toast rotated in and out day to day.

Room Tip: Try the restaurant across the street, it's better than the hotel. Rent bikes from the hotel in t...

The rooms here are beautiful as is the setting, its the staff that let it down.

Based in old sukhothai, it is a half hour walk to the national park or a short tuktuk ride away. The rooms are a good size, beautifully presented, and the water and greenery all around give off a lovely serene feeling. But there was something just a bit off about the whole place.

For example, there was a card in our room saying "bicycle and motorbike to hire, inquire at front desk", which we did and in which we were told, "no motorbikes we no do motorbikes." Fine that not a problem, maybe remove the signs then. We also asked for a tuktuk one day, well in the end I had to ask 3 times before she picked up the phone, and I do not think anything was lost in translation, they just do things in their own time. Same again happened when I asked to get things out of the safety box, took a good while for it to be done, she was far more interested in her blank excel document than helping a paying customer.

Overall feeling: they are doing you a favour by allowing you to stay there (in their overpriced rooms)

The hotel lies outside of the city and has no restaurants or any other places nearby only the restaurant of the hotel. Only the sukhothai park is nearby which one can reach by rental bikes. My group had two different kind of rooms a) like mine, with biger rooms and a canopy bed. The room and bathroom itself were clean but the water pressure could have been better. b) smaller rooms or bungalows with 2 beds which were far less comfy than a). So depending on the room you had the review can vary. Breakfast is ok at the hotel but not more.
The light is not very good, it was difficult to find the room in the dark when we arrived in the evening. For one night the hotel is ok, it's clean and good beds.

the resort is picturesque, beautiful garden with a big pond in front of hotel's restaurant.
it locates close to historical park. good car park.

food: not so impressive for taste, but reasonable price.
staff: friendly and nice
room: size is good, decoration is nice, but not practical in use.

in room makes us feel a bit discomfort, however, we enjoy its garden, swimming pool and some little birds around us in the restaurant.

Hotel grounds: picturesque. A small garden oasis.

Lodgings: clean and comfortable. Quiet.

Bathroom: careful when stepping out from the bathroom onto the smooth-tiled floor of the room. The bathroom floor remains wet.

Staff: friendly and helpful.

Food: our only negative comment - we had two meals here (one evening meal and one breakfast buffet) and were disappointed on both counts. In a country that produces some rather flavourful coffees, we were served instant stuff from a jar. A shame. And we were served the strangest fruit salad made with mayonnaise (?!)

Price: Higher-than-average for the area and for Thailand in general. Must take into consideration the town (Sukhothai) is largely a tourist destination because of its historic park and the hotel is rather well situated.

Location: Very conveniently located near the historic park. By car, we were at the park entrance within minutes. But even those doing the short journey by bicycle should not require more than 15 minutes or so of riding to reach their destination.

Room Tip: Book via Internet to take advantage of discount. We were shown rooms within two price ranges. We c...

We did not stay at LE CHARME, but inquired about the restaurant - as we were staying in a nearby resort without a restaurant.
The place was packed with Thai tour groups, which seemed to have a conference there. The furnishing of the indoor and outdoor area and the missing ventilation outside did not appeal to us. Furthermore the menu did not reveal anything special.
The bungalows looked nice, the swimming pool area excellent.

I have been stayed there a night during I had business trip there. They have many room type in the garden or water well front view. They are providing sunset massage at outside the room. Quite good atmostphere. Also you can get massage in room. They have swimming pool and outlet at the center of garden for you guys as well. You can rent a bicycle to ride around historic park.

Room Tip: Room water well front should be fine as my photo.
