It is not far from the historical park, very far from the bus station in new Sukohthai city where we got off. The garden style hotel is just so beautiful, room is clean and cozy, comfortable, and quiet. The breakfast is full of surprises, delicious western and thai food, opens at 7:00Am which is perfect to go for our tour schedule in ancient park. Staffs are extremely polite and informative, hotel has bicycle rent service, but we took the tuktuk ride arranged by front desk to old town center for 50B, from there we rent motorbike to begin our day trip around the park. it was the best-valued hotel in our 2 weeks vacation in Thailand!
Prós: Extremely beautiful Thai garden style hotel, the best valued hotel in our 2 weeks visit in Thailand
Prós: The rooms were modern and very comfortable. Air-con, fridge, flat screen. Very clean. Not much else going on at the guesthouse, but it is very close to the go-to bars and restaurants in new town (across the street. 7-11 also. They rent motorbikes on site, and it's about a 10-15 minute to Sukhothai Park where the ruins are located. The lady running the joint was extremely pleasant, even after we made a bit too much noise one night. Never felt pressured into anything, never felt like we were in trouble. She was also very helpful, despite the slight language barrier. She knows enough English to be proficient in assisting her guests. For the price we paid there, could not be happier. Definitely stay here if your looking for a comfortable and convenient place to stay.
Contras: I liked everything, but if you're looking for something with more of a backpacker social vibe, maybe try one of the places across the way (near the Chopper Bar). Pai Guesthouse seemed like nice joint.
Prós: it was a pleasant place to stay and the staff were really nice and helpful
Contras: the bungalows while being clean and cheerful tended to be small
Prós: Very helpful friendly staff and a nice quiet location away from the main town
Contras: The mattress was the most uncomfortable I have ever slept on with springs sticking in our backs. I could not recommend this hotel due to the lack of sleep due to this fact
Prós: The rooms were simple and clean. It didn't specify that some of the rooms don't have private bathrooms. I have yet to find a decent mattress in any hotel in Chiang Mai (other than 5 star hotels). The location was very inconvenient, out of the way, hard to find and in a residential area. There is nothing in this town to do, literally.
