REVIEWS

Many visitors go to Sukhothai to visit the historical park but end up in a hotel of "new" Sukhothai which is 12 kilometers away. Le Charme is located in Old Sukhothai, just outside the old city walls. The landscaping done by the architect of this property is outstanding.

Nice landscaping and friendly staff

Booked for three nights, stayed for six. A lovely resort consisting of large 'chalet type' rooms, swimming pool, restaurant and bar. Room had a balcony overlooking a lake, pleasant to sit out on with a few beers from local shops. 

Near to the World Heritage Site

We chose to stay at Le Charme because it was recommended by the Lonely Planet and because we wanted to be within close proximity to Sukhothai Historical Park. We really enjoyed our experience overall. 

A verdant oasis, close to the historical park.

The Le Charme Hotel was the perfect spot for exploring the Sukhothai Historic Park. While other hotels in the 'New Sukhothai' area looked nice, the Le Charme is a short cycle into the Historic Park, rather than a shuttle bus. 

The Le Charme Hotel was the perfect spot
