“A Fantastic Budget Find”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I've been coming to Thailand for many years, and this is probably the best budget accommodation
I've had the pleasure of staying in. The room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean, with a real bed. Wifi worked perfectly, as did the a/c. I ate breakfast here twice and it was very good. The staff are friendly and helpful. They even set me up with a great tuk-tuk driver to tour the ruins for a day.

Rooms are cheap but very neat and tidy and cleaned daily. One of the best value places I've stayed at in Thailand. The bed is also very comfortable (best so far in Thailand). Staff very friendly and helpful. Location convenient. It's in New Sukhothai so you'll have to take a songthaew to the old city, but it's very close to the guesthouse and service is regular. I had an air-conditioned room but I couldn't adjust the temperature so it was quite warm during the night. Not sure if it was broken, or intentional. Otherwise, everything else was perfect.

In all of my travels this is one of the best places I have ever stayed. The price was low, the room was big and clean, the location was great and the service was friendly and useful.

I don't have one bad thing to stay, if you are going to Sukhothai, stay here.

this hotel was cheep and was worth the money. it was worth the money because it was clean and in a great location. hope you have a good experience as my family and i had. but the bathroom was small and there was no soap and shampoo so you would have to by one or bring one, but beside that it was pretty good.

I cannot imagine a better place for that price in new Sukhothai. I had a bunglow with fan and felt very comfortable. There is only one thing that could be improved: the only light in the bedroom is too bright. It should be either dimable or an addition bed side lamp.
The location is perfect. In a quiet side street, but only a few steps from the center of the action with food and a few bars.
And the owners (I think they were) were friendly and very helpful.
By the way, i rented a scooter to see old Sukhothai and in my opinion thats the best way to see it.

This is a clean and simple guest house. We stayed for two nights and explored the old city ruins during our full day in Sukhothai. Transportation to the old city is just a couple minute walk from the guest house with restaurants, a bank, and 7-11 also within close proximity.

The highlight of this guest house was the bed - the most comfortable we have encountered in Thailand. We had an A/C room so temperature was not an issue.The room also had a private bathroom. The front desk staff were not as warm as other places but always helped us find the information we needed.

Breakfast was not included but both mornings we ate at the guest house's restaurant where they offer sizable breakfasts for a good rate.

Unfortunately, the bus terminal is not close to any of the guest houses so expect to pay 30-40 baht per person for a tuk-tuk to TR.

We stayed here for three nights in a fan room. We liked almost everything about the guesthouse. We received a warm welcome from the guys who run it and we ate a couple of meals there too which were very nice (they also gave us some fruit one evening which was awesome). They also gave us a lift to the police station after my friend's wallet was stolen which was very much appreciated.

The one negative was the temperature in the fan room. It was insanely hot. I'd recommend going for aircon if you can.
