Quietude and comfort near the bus station
81/16 Kuha Suwan Rd, Sukhothai T: (055) 620 911, (081) 755 7031
Tucked in spacious and quiet grounds between the bus station and river, Phuaroon has some of the most comfortable rooms in new Sukhothai, and at excellent value to boot.
All rooms come with TVs, lots of windows, air-con and fans, firm but comfortable beds with classic roofed frames and clean hot water bathrooms. The 400 baht offerings are new hardwood bungalows with tasteful Thai wood carvings, while 500 baht gets you a little more space and tile floors, but the 600 baht rooms towards the back are worth the extra cash for loads of space, woven basket furniture for relaxing, huge windows and large, colourful bathrooms. There's free WiFi throughout, but no bicycle or motorbike rental, although they can apparently have these delivered. You'll probably want those wheels since the resort is a solid 10 minutes' walk north of the Phra Ruang bridge, although it's a lovely stroll through a charming old village to get there, and you can walk straight here from the bus station (look for the path off the north of the parking lot). Phuaroon is an excellent choice for those looking for comfortable rooms in a more secluded location.
