I stayed in this guesthouse for 2 days. The first day it was full, so I did a homestay for 100baht. The next day, I was a private room with shared bathroom for 150 baht. The woman in charge was perfectly lovely as were her kids. Her husband was cordial enough the first day. However, there were complications with the... More

Poor arrangement of windows and public spaces. Despite the sign "Quite Hours 10:pm to 6:am, there were lots of loud conversations from other guests in the common areas directly next to the room windows. When I asked them to oblige the sign, I was told to join in. Not a bad idea if I could speak their language or if... More

I this place a 5 dot rating. Because for the price of 8 cans Leo beer (7/11) he offers you a solid and safe 2pax. concrete room with ensuite bathroom. AC cost extra so up to you. If you need he puts on the power and you pay for electrical. Just step out of the garden and you are in... More

Right next to the lake so you can take a lot of night/morning photos of the temples on the opposite site and have dinner at night market every evening :-) The family is friendly and helpful, especially the woman. The room (250 B) was clean but some repairs are needed.

Luckily found this really cheap descent place right next to the lake in Mae Hong Son. Its low season now so the guesthouse was a bit quiet but got a double room and bed to myself for 150b.... Good if you're doing things on the cheap and want a central location. Staff friendly and helped me by advising places to... More

Great location. Johnnie and his wife are really nice and very helpful with local activities, even if you don't want to do one of their day trips. The only room for our first two nights was an inner room with shared bathroom (no towels/soap/tp provided), for 150b it was fine but we were really happy to move to a large... More

I can recommend this guesthouse. The people are so nice! It's right at the lake and prices are really good. Plus you can do a day trip and they take you everywhere. I have nothing to complain about and fell in love with northern thailand, thanks to the day trip!

Great value, friendly hosts, and a gate opening onto the lakeside park. The shared bathrooms are pretty basic but functional. WiFi works well. Great location near the night walking street and not far from the main shops in town.

This place is run by a very friendly family, Johnnie and his wife, Bot. They make you feel at home and are very helpful with providing information in and around Mae Hong Son. It is a great location near the lake and has nice, clean and cheap rooms. There is no restaurant at the guest house however there are restaurants... More
