Top-ranking budget spot
27/5 Pravet Nakhon Rd, New Sukhothai T: (055) 611 663
Set in a solid location within an easy walk of the river, night market and songthaew pick-up point, TR Guesthouse offers some of the best value in New Sukhothai's highly competitive budget market.
In the main building up front you can settle into a spacious and clean double or single room with firm bed, hot water shower and your choice of powerful fan or air-con. With sky-blue tile floors and white walls, the rooms have a minimalist vibe, but a framed photo or painting of some or other quintessential Thailand scene lends a hint of character. Out back beyond a roofed car park, attractive dark-wood bungalows come with comfortable queen beds, mosquito nets, simple hot-water bathrooms, Thai axe pillows on hardwood floors and porches facing a small garden.
Motorbikes are available to rent, WiFi is free in the main building and the front terrace is a fine spot to enjoy the good food, great coffee and cheap beer while chatting up other travellers. The family owners do a great job of taking care of their guests. TR is often full so you might want to make a reservation if visiting during peak times of year. If you’re out of luck here, head around the corner to Ban Thai
or Hang Jeng
, or pop next door to Garden House.
