                Nice hotel only 20 minutes walk from the Mae Sai Border crossing. Free wifi. Set back from the maiin street so it's quiet. I paid a little more for a room with a fridge. Aircon worked well. The shower was nice and hot. The reakfast was ok. Coffee, juice, fried eggs cooked for you, local suasages and toast.

                It was nice every time we chose to stay here. The hotel itself was clean, neat and I didn't need to ask for more with this price. The service is also good. The only weak point of this hotel is location. It quite far from the Maesai market. You gotta need a car or rent a bike to travel. If not, there is a red bus driving pass the hotel as well.

                False advertised: The coffee shop was closed (seemingly indefinitely) and the hotel didn't offer laundry service as listed in the description. The staff didn't speak much English, which is fine, but there was no attempt to try to help when asking where I can do laundry lol. She just said "Mai mii" and "mai ruu" ("Don't have" and "Don't know") then went back to playing Facebook. When I left the key for checkout, no one was there. I saw a girl waking in as I was leaving, tried to tell her I left the key on the counter, but she completely ignored my existence. I was pretty shocked. The rooms were okay. There was a candy wrapper on the floor but not a big deal. Location is on the main road. I have a motorcycle so it was easy to get around, but otherwise you're kind of in the middle of nowhere. Luckily there is good parking. There are much better places to stay.

                Such a pleasant surprise. A slightly industrial, artisanal vibe. Everything super clean, super spacious, and in good condition. With a fun restaurant/beer hall next door. Traffic noise from the road is very loud, so ask for one of the side or back rooms. I've given 5 stars for everything except the facilities, and that's only because the coffee shop in the reception area, which looked delightful, was never open for the three days I was there.

                This hotel is really clean and beautifully decorated. It does not feel like a budget hotel. It has a good location that is easy to find.

                We loved this place. It is more like a modern posh hotel then a hostel. The owner bent over back words for us to help get our motorcycle fixed because it was a holiday and everything was closed. Really really nice guy!

The rooms were small with no fridge but clean. Internet was to weak to use in rooms. Lobby had lots of couches and seating areas and internet was good there. There was movie area where you could borrow movies or watch in lobby. Breakfest was cooked as we came so fresh and hot. Was good value for money.

                economical hotel with great service”

                the reception area

                It's an excellent choice for backpackers. It's clean, cheap, and not far from the Thai-Myanmar border bridge. The hotel has a spacious reception area with many amenities. I watched videos and relax until rain passed by.

                Lovely modern clean hotel ”

                Clean, modern, comfortable, friendly

                Wonderful stay, reception was very nice and helpful hotel property and rooms are brand new, very clean, modern decor and amenities. The breakfast was delicious and staff friendly. Room construction is concrete so can be a little dark inside even with lights on but that can also be good for sleep and sound insulation. Would definitely stay again! Gem of a stay at the border of Thailand/Myanmar!
