Clean and cheerful
This intimate family-run spot has developed one of the best reputations on Soi 67 thanks to its consistently clean rooms and cheerful staff.
It’s very much a guesthouse; we’re not sure why they’ve begun calling the place a hotel. Whatever the label, rooms are comfortable with more effort put into keeping the place clean rather than creating a trendy image. Expect white-tile floors, small balconies, decent beds with fresh linens, reasonably sized bathrooms, TVs and mini-fridges. Each room is slightly different from the next in terms of setup and space, so you might ask to see a few before settling in. Sunshine also offers shared computers, tours and transport bookings, and the staff was among the friendliest we encountered in Hua Hin; they really make you feel like sticking around. Families are welcome, and reservations are a good idea if you’re visiting on a weekend.
