Check in took long as the guy couldn't read my hotel voucher. Dirty old hotel.
First visit to Mae Sot”
The price, the location & the wood
Our stay was great!
Ghost Hotel ”
cost, woodwork throughout the hotel, and privacy
Came in from Mae Sot from Myanmar and had to take a shared shuttle bus from the border to the center of Mae Sot for 200 bhat. It was quite far from the border. We asked directions for First Hotel once we got to downtown Mae Sot, but few people knew where it was or were willing to help us. Finally, a gentleman who owned a store kindly drove us there. (I don’t know how we would have found it without him!) Upon arrival, we found a woman at the front desk whose English was relatively good, but she soon left for the evening, and no one was at the front desk who could or would help us from about five o’clock in the afternoon to seven o’clock the next morning. Several people sat around watching television in the lobby, but they seemed disinterested in helping us. (I wasn’t even sure they worked there!) The room itself was mostly fine – although one of the mattresses was uncomfortable and the toilet had a pool of water left over from the previous occupants -- and you really couldn’t use the toilet without getting in the water. If you’re incredibly self-sufficient, and don’t mind feeling as if you’re staying in a ghost hotel, you’ll enjoy the reasonable rate.

I showed up and found out I paid 70 baht more than I should pay per a night. I booked this hotel thru Agota and paid 520 baht per night but normaly standard room costs 450. seems like they charge more if you book thru Agota. The receptionists are extreamly unfriendly and unhelpful. The lady didn't give me any imformation and didn't even say thank you when I left even though I can speak Thai. I travel to meet people, so this place made me very lonely.
