Quality rooms near the bus station

More on Sukhothai

Easily overlooked despite its location within a three-minute stroll down a leafy path from the bus station, Phuaroon Resort is a small Thai-style place with rooms that punch above their price tags.

Travelfish says:

The cheapest rooms come in a Thai-style dark-wood building with several screened windows, TVs, fridges, tables, wall-mounted fans in addition to air-con and firm beds with soft linens. The hot-water bathrooms are small, with sinks and mirrors placed out near the beds.

These are great options if you want air-con and like the hardwood looks of Lotus Village but can only spend around 500 baht. An extra 100 baht brings you up to a modern concrete-and-tile room in either a freestanding yellow bungalow or an attached building with furnished terraces. These come with more space, woven basket furniture, wide glass windows and spacious bathrooms with no shortage of colourful decor. All rooms looked well kept and WiFi is free.

Located along a tree-lined lane that connects the bus station to the charming lane that skirts the river’s western bank, Phuaroon is a 10-minute walk south to the bridge. It’s a bit out of the way unless coming from the bus station and bicycle/motorbike rental is not available, but you could rent one elsewhere to make your stay here more convenient. There’s also a car park. The owner is an older woman who makes up for her minimal English skills with a welcoming attitude. Phuaroon is best suited to self-sufficient travellers who don’t require an on-site restaurant, spa and tour desk.
