Top-ranking budget spot
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.
