Okay rooms, great hospitality
A good 10 minutes' walk from the river on the east side of town, Sukhothai Guesthouse doesn't offer the greatest rooms or the best value in town, and the location could be better.
Yet, the owners consistently make up for all of this with their genuinely wonderful hospitality. Rooms are set in a small but pleasant area with loads of tropical plants. Some come with air-con and others with fans, but all have attached hot water bathrooms. Inside, they're quite basic and are showing their age, but they are well kept and reasonably comfortable, and the owner claims he'll have 32-inch flatscreens installed in every one of them soon. Each room also boasts what are probably the best verandas in town, all of which feature enough chairs, benches and space for several travellers to enjoy some serious chill time. The porches aren't private, but that's not a bad thing if looking to make some friends. All rooms also have free WiFi and bicycles are available for free while motorbikes may be rented. There's also a restaurant and bar serving up 99 baht cocktails, although there are plenty of great local food options nearby. Sukhothai Guesthouse has been around for a while and consistently sees return customers.
