Orchid Hibiscus Guest House
407/2, 64210 Old City, Sukhothai, Thailand
Stay away. Rude staff.
Stay away from this hotel, unless you want to hear the owner yelling and complaining about you. He’s got no respect for his clients.
Our first impression was a bit bad, because the access road was bumpy and the private parking that the hotel promised was a lie and it was only a wooden cover with a muddy ground, where our car almost gets stuck.
Then we entered the hotel and the Italian person who owns it received us badly, asking “what do we want” in a very rude way. After telling him we booked two rooms he realized that we were five people (we travel with a baby girl that sleeps in a bed with the parents). He asked in a rude way why do we pay two double rooms if we are five people. We told him that it was not a problem for us, because the baby girl sleeps with the parents. After that he was even ruder to us, shouting that for him we were a problem, because we paid rooms for four people but we were five people (even on its website it says that the baby could sleep with the parents free of charge…). He shouted that if we wanted we could pay just one room and sleep on the floor (unbelievable…).
After that “show” we went to see the rooms and they were not what we expected. They were dirty, the AC was not working well, and it smelled a lot to humidity.
On the way back we see that the pool is also dirty and not very deep (the water level is on the waist height more or less).
Despite all of the inconvenients we decide to stay, but the owner still yelling and complaining and treating us in that rude way made us change our mind and go away and try to find another hotel.
Nobody deserves to be treated like we were. I don’t even want my worst enemy to be treated like that. Stay away from this hotel if you don’t want to spoil your holidays…
Unique Quality: The rudest staff ever. That was a unique quality of this hotel. I've never seen something like that before.

The Coffe Cup
Are there many guesthouses over there?? And what are the prices? (looking for smth budged)
I stayed at the Lotus Village in October. Very nice and not far from the night market. I can't remember what the price was (maybe $8-10 for my own room with bath) but it couldn't have been too much or I would remember. If coming in by bus the station is about 4kms from the main part of town. Transport into town costs about 30bt. You can find cheaper, but not nicer.
I forgot to mention they have a website
Re: Re: Accomodation
Stayed at Banthai GH before. A very nice and strategic place. If not wrong it costs ard 200B for a room without bathroom.
The address is 38, Pravet Nakhon Rd, Sukhothai
Travel Tips for Sukhothai
Take a picnic to the Historical Park
This is one of the places most remembered for the number of Thai tourists also visiting - particularly as we were there on a Sunday. There were groups of families and young people sitting around on the grass eating picnic lunches - families riding their bicycles together - young couples - and lots of other families and groups visiting a significant historical location. We saw one family time and time again - a mum and her 3 children - all of whom were so friendly and welcoming - and the youngest was getting used to riding on 2 wheels! Lovely to see Thai people/families out enjoying leisure activities, as we are so accustomed to seeing how hard these people work.
Old Sukhothai is full of smaller wats that are worth visiting. Each has its own distinctive character - and each its own particulatrattraction: the more you see, the more you want to see (and this is the reson why you need to rent a bycicle). This one in the picture (whose name i don't know9 is possible the one I liked most, because of the curious "walled" buddha image.
Take a picnic!
The whole area of old Sukhothai is a delightful garden filled with ancient architecture and verdant gardens. There is enough to see here to make a whole day of it, so take a lunch with you (which is less expensive than buying it nearby) and sit along the waterfront of on the grass and enjoy the blue skies and red stone.
The East Zone is a mildly rewarding as well as not being too far away from the Central Zone. It’s roughly about a 10 minute bike ride on the main road to some rustic temples. There are two “main” temples across the road from each other, somewhat in the woods though. They are not immediately visible from the road. You’ll have to pay attention to the road signs. The good news is that you won’t have to share the view with anyone else, since you’ll most likely be the only person there.
All the temples in the East Zone are free.
Wat Si Chum
This is the temple which houses the largest Buddha image - which peeks out from a peak style doorway to the mondop, which was built to house the Buddha - the ceiling is long gone. Another unusual style, with its own unique qualities.
There were more locals here than any of the other temples when we visited, all seeming to want their photographs taken in front of this large Buddha.
