Old City Guesthouse

The oldest guesthouse in old Sukhothai (in more ways than one), Old City has a few buildings with different types of rooms a short walk away from the historical park gates.

Dirt cheap fan rooms occupy a 350-year-old Thai wood house that at first glance looks as though it could have been preserved simply to add to the ambience. At 150 baht, these rooms offer nothing more than a bed, fan and window to go with cold water shared bathroom facilities that include both squat and Western toilets. Still, with hardwood floors and walls, staying in these ancient rooms could be an experience in itself. A couple of newer log cabin longhouse-style buildings flank the old house on either side, and these offer basic but clean and spacious rooms with tile floors and hot water showers. The fan option is solid value, but you can add air-con and TV for 100 baht more, or air-con, TV and fridge for 200 baht more. Unlike the old house, these rooms lack any trace of character and they don't get much natural light, but they're certainly comfortable. WiFi is free, and overall Old City beats nearby Vitoon Guesthouse for the title of best budget spot near the ruins.
