Sukhothai Accommodation - anyone found a favorite place in Sukhothai?
Haven't had a night in Sukhothai for 4+ years so can't really say. But can recommend the Dream Cafe for food & drink.
GF and I found the Pailin Hotel quite nice - about 1000 Baht a night when we were there about 18 months ago. It's about halfway between Sukhothai town and the Sukhothai ruins. Has a nice pool.
I stayed at the Rajthanee Hotel on the main street of Sukhothai. It's seen better days, i think, but was decent and very affordable. I think it was 400-500 bt for nice single room. Was clean and nice folks worked there. I think there's reno'd section and older section. Here's one link:
I had moved there from J and J Guesthouse. Nice set of cabin like rooms on a klong. Run by Farang-Thai family. Went there first after meeting bird dogger at bus station. Good food, too. But family kids were pretty noisy early morning, for my taste.
I stayed at 'At Home' in Sukhothai this September. Very comfortable old wooden teak house. It has fan and air con rooms, all with comfy beds, hot showers and yes western toilets. It is set in a pretty garden and the little restaurant does really nice thai food for cheap. Also has a safe place for your bike if you are riding.
I paid 450B for a fan room. I think breakfast was included but not 100%. It is near the market in the new town, not far from the bridge. I recommend it.
OWe stayed in Old City GH 500 for aicon room and fantastic parking and just behind the corner 50Met great French restaurant with good cold one's and exelent food

J & J Guesthouse Sukhothai.
Great place to stay in Sukhothai, just off the Main road near the river, right in the centre of town.
They also have a little restaurant that serves good food and cold beer.

Rooms range from 500-600 baht which is good value for bungalows in this location.
Lots of mini-resorts and guesthouses around historic city area. Incidentally I just came back from Sukhothai on Sunday.
Stayed at Baan Khunya Resort. Brand new, owner nice Thai gentlemen and KTM Adv rider. He told me his dream is to have a bunch of riders staying at the resort, seriously that's what he said.
Cozy place, 2 storey bungalows featuring separate 2 rooms at each floor, just over THB 1,000 / breakfast / free wi-fi and you get to park the bike at the porch

Goran - Can you check those co-ordinates .... they put it in the temple complex !! He does have the correct location on his website.
Last time I was there, we used the newly built "Blue House".... fairly close to the Chopper Bar.
Was about 700 bht/night but they also had a cheaper Green House available (probably fan and no a/c I guess).
Clean & friendly, covered parking for bikes.

Thanks for pointing it out.

Just in from 2 nights in Sukhothai with the GF. She had booked the Amorn Hotel out on the super through work.
Good value for money at 450 baht a night, but out of the way if you don't have transport.
A huge block for travelling salesmen
Aircon - hot water TV - WiFi
Plenty of space , bright & airy rooms
Exceptional good water pressure.
But if I was to stay downtown in Sukhothai again I'd be staying at either the Orchid
or the SP
Of note too in Sukhothai is that the old Rajthanee has closed & is up for sale. I had many a good night there in the coffee shop 20-25 years ago.
A return to Sukhothai & time to check out one of the tips above.
The SP Hotel
A bit of a classic oldie. And a beauty.
& for 390 baht an absolute winner.
Check it out sometime. Loads parking. Some under cover for your bike. Across the street a 7-11, Bangkok Bank, Siam Commercial Bank, Thanchart Bank + Pimmy Bakery House + S&N Coffee.
Location Singhawat road, 250 metres from the clock tower roundabout.
