“Beautiful Place, Great Location!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 December 2013 via mobile

The Tharaburi is a great hotel in an ideal location in Sukhothai.

My wife and I stayed there while driving between Bangkok on Chaing Mai during our Honeymoon. We timed our stay with the Loy Krathong festival.

The hotel is located ideally close to the Sukhothai Historical Park, and perfect for bicycling to and from the park.

The hotel rented us both two bicycles for a small fee, and we road into the park just a few minutes away to watch the week long festivities begin. We were treated to massive festival/show that was put on for free for both locals and foreigners celebrating Loy Krathong.

The room was beautiful, a nice size, the food at the restaurant was nice and the staff was friendly. Along with the fact that you can bicycle to the park and explore all the ruins. I would definitely recommend to the Tharaburi Resort.

If you want to visit Sukhothai History Park the Tharaburi Resort is a good base. The rooms, indeed the whole layout, are quirky but in a pleasant way and ours certainly lived up to the promise of the photos. Reception staff had adequate English and were very helpful, the pool was clean, and if you wanted a Thai massage as my wife did a masseuse could be arranged. Food was a bit of a let-down but the History Park visits don’t make for a long stay.

Much is made of the availability of bicycles to visit the ruins and if you’re young and fit that’s an option. However the hotel isn’t just round the corner from the Park, which itself is a big area once you get there. You may prefer the tuk-tuk option – for a reasonable hourly rate you can get taken to and round the sites, the drivers know their way around, and a pleasant bonus is the design of tuk-tuks used. The passenger compartment is in front of the driver and the engine so you can see where you’re going and get a pleasant breeze rather than sucking exhaust fumes.

TIP: The De Luxe rooms (i.e. the cheaper ones) are towards the rear of the property, the Grand De Luxe (a bit pricier) are at the front which means next to the road which means traffic noise. Another reason to go for the De Luxe option!

This is a really lovely stay -- feels very pastoral, with lots of green, water, and nice rooms. The staff work hard to add touches, like decorating basins with flower designs and offering whatever they can to make your stay pleasant. We liked our room -- especially because the flat sleeping platform left room for our kids to sleep next to us on padding (we brought).

However, the pool is dirty, and the light fixtures look downright lethal (exposed wires and broken plastic). Way too much chlorine to compensate. Breakfast is not that exciting, but they try. Staff works hard to please.

Price is high, but there are limited options near the ruins, so they're making the most of it. TV channels are geared towards French and Germans.

Room Tip: They all seem to share the same good qualities.

The staff is very helpful, very nice... but the place really needs a refreshment (paintings falling, mosquito nets torn away in the bathrooms,.....)
The price is really high for Thailand... and for that, you can expect much better..
Breakfast is.... cheap
But the location is perfect, free bikes at your disposal, 5 min away from the park !

Room Tip: ask to see the rooms before you check in !

The room was great with all necessary facilities & the inside/outside shower was interesting. We looked out on pond, it was good to relax sitting there in evening with a cool beer. Birds flowers etc fascinating, staff all very helpful. We had read a report of fire here which was not correct the hotel was pretty much perfect for the area.Pool was perfect to chill in after a hot day visiting Old Sukhothai. Breakfast was excellent and the evening meals weren't a bad option. We tried one of restaurants near Old town gates and were sorely disappointed. You can use a bicycle from the hotel to get around the temples which is a good option.

Room Tip: Choose deluxe room with views to pond.

Great hotel, I stayed there during Songkran festival and enjoy it. My bedroom was fantastic - the purple one by my parent had another which seems to be unfinished in term of decor and painting. Service was simple and friendly, breakfast good value. We had lunch and dinner and the Thai food was great. The bicycle are for rent THB 50 /day not free as mentioned below.

The rooms are great...I took the opportunity to look at ALL the rooms in the hotel as I had heard they were all different and they were all individually and tastefully decorated. The staff were polite and very willing to help.The cooking is perfect at a really nice price,The location to Old Sukhothai was really the best!
