Reviewed February 25, 2013

Loved this guest house! The young woman manager never stops working. She's constantly cleaning so the place is spotless. Yes the beds may be too firm for some people but we loved them. The pool area is a true oasis.
Rent bicycles and lockup at guest house overnight. tour the park in the early morning, pool break midday, back to park through sunset, peddle to dinner at food-stalls or restaurant.

Room Tip: Rooms with twin beds appear to be larger than rooms with double bed.

The pin pao GH is a very nice place, with beautiful rooms (prefer the ones upstairs with the view on the garden, they are more quiet). They have a nice pool in a garden at the back of the house. It is correctly located (10 min from the entrance of the historical park of Sukhothai, and just near everything you need: restaurants, 7 eleven, market, bycicle rental)

But 2 bad points:
- first the bed was very very hard to sleep on!
- second, the manager did not want us to leave our bags during a few hours after our checkout so we can visit the historical park without our luggages!!! That's the only GH in Thailande (and all Asia) who refused to do so! VERY NOT COOL!

(And the WiFi is not free)

We spent 2 nights in Pin Pao and we had 2 adjourning rooms on the ground floor. The rooms smelled and the beds were awful. It felt like we were lying on hard plastic mattresses. The pool was nice and the staff friendly but the breakfast was a little too simple for our taste. There must be better places to find.
It is pretty close to the old city, so as far as location goes it was fine. You can take a walk up to the entrance of the park to rent bikes (recommended). Also there is a nice restaurant about 2 km on the opposite road (lanaveew or something - it's on the right hand side).

Very good location close to Sukothai park entrance (walking distance) many restaurants, stalls down de street.
Friendly lady did run the place and keeps it very clean , good advice were to rent bycicles (must for a visit) and how to get bus ticket to Chang Mai (VIP bus stop almost in front of guesthouse)
Guesthouse has nice garden with swimming pool.
Confort, Rooms are not big, ok for a few night.
Price/Quality ok , Seems same owner as Orchid Hibiscus.
Location,close walking distance to park entrance.
Facilities: Typical in a guesthouse FREE WIFI is available, here you need to pay (buy a voucher)
Overall, nice place to stay with very friendly staff

Located in old Sukhothai, a ten or fifteen minute walk to the Historical park, this was a lovely place to spend a few days.

Transfer from the airport was a breeze; the minivans that are arranged by Bangkok Air have it as one of their stops, and it's a nice drive through beautiful countryside.

The room was clean and prettily decorated. It was on the small side but had a desk, dressing table and wardrobe and a lovely four poster bed with mosquito nets, and the size was more than made up for with the decent sized wetroom bathroom.

The staff were friendly, breakfast plentiful and the guest house was situated only a short walk from cafes, bars, local shops and the park itself, perfect for our visit during Loy Krathong.

The icing on the cake was the gorgeous gardens and pool, with sun canopies and comfy hammocks for lounging around on when we'd finished seeing the sights. There was plenty of space and nooks and crannies for peace and quiet.

We stayed here for one night as we spent 2 days in Sukhothai seeing the sights. The guesthouse is quiet and rooms have been renovated lovely. The highlight of this guesthouse is its amazing pool and relaxation area. Would recommend to anyone. It's close enough to ride your bike to the park.

Room Tip: All rooms are lovely.

we stayed at the Pin Pao Guesthouse in Old Sukhothai for 2 nights during the Loy Krathong festival this November. It was very new at the time, sparkling clean and full of character and colour, with a lovely deck on the back side away from street. Friendly owner Paolo was on hand to aid with advice and conversation. The location of the guesthouse is perfect for visiting the ruins at Sukhothai, which was our purpose for the visit, as you can walk to the park entrance in minutes. You can also rent bikes very nearby to make getting around to all of the ruins very enjoyable. A new, and very spiffy, coffee house has also opened right across the street with great cappucino and waffles. Be aware however that the rooms are small and so can not accomodate extra beds for children accompanying you. They either have 2 single beds or 1 double. We rented two rooms to accomodate our small family of three which was still a huge bargain for the price.
