The staff and owner are very nice and helpful. I stayed 2 or 3 nights, it's a blur. I cancelled one night and they kindly agreed to it. The breakfast I missed but they allowed me to help myself to what was there anyway. The room was very clean and spacious. It was a welcome break after the noise and... More

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.... More

Great convivial place friendly staff especially Anne. Would stay here again. Well located, good wifi Could do with a bit more attention in the rooms regarding the stained curtains and groggy bathrooms but perfectly adequate at 280 single fan 400 twin a/c. I think any modernisation is focused on more wood and its carving. A passionate owner, one who must... More

The heavy, dark carved wood everywhere was awesome, and probably most North Americans will never have seen this much intricately carved wood all in one place. The bedding was unpleasant, but you’re here to look at the amazing woodwork that the owner told me is constantly being worked on by carpenters from Burma, not to gaze at the linens so... More

In the whole of Thailand we have never found a place with such a wonerfull owner, incredible wooden creations, bathrooms made of marble. Over the period of our stay we had 4 different rooms, there were no bugs in any of them, each time they were clean, fresh towels were brought daily, free botteled water was a nice touch. The...

From the outside, this hotel looks like a real dump, but once you step inside, you are welcomed by antique teak furniture that is absolutely fantastic. The furniture alone make it a worthwhile option. The lobby staff allow you to choose a room other than theo one they show you. The rooms are priced at 280 and 450 Baht respectively... More

Stayed here for just 1 night. It is a very old hotel and has a lot of character, it is fairly clean, although stained curtains and off white bedding sheets. The hotel is full of ornate wooden carvings and furniture from Burma i think. It was worth the 450 baht just to see the carvings, you just dont get that... More

Stayed here for a few days as I went over the border to extend my visa. Great hotel lots of history. Amazing wood carvings and teak furniture. Helpful staff. Could do with a lick of paint in places but at the end of the day this is Mae Sot.

This hotel has well carved beds, ceilings, walls and other. This hotel is in the center of town, close to a big market, shopping, close to the Miramar Border as I biked there. The hotel room was well lit and I found it comfortable. The layout is rather calming with all of the wood and open space. The town is... More

I'm still amazed by all the massive, intricate wood carvings that are around here. I think the building is fairly old, but it's really well furnished. Our room has AC, TV, fridge, and wifi; so I have no complaints about the amenities.
