I chose this guest house based on TA's description. Since this was a quick working trip to Mae Hong Son I needed wifi, quiet, and walking distance to restaurants. Mae Hong Son is small and easily navigated on foot and owner Htoo arranged a tuk tuk from the airport, a quick 3 minute drive. Our room was large, with king size bed, fan, AC, hangers, desk and chairs, on the 1st floor overlooking the driveway and a flowering bush that attracted lots of butterflies. The bathroom was off a small rear balcony, with good hot water pressure (after I located water heater switch, high up on outside wall). At 500b, breakfast was not included but there are several cafes nearby. The only complaint we had was the cold overhead fluorescent lighting, easily remedied with a couple of bedside reading lamps.
Khun Htoo works as a medical technician at the local hospital, so is not always available to answer questions. However his 80 year old betel-chewing mom was around, and while her English and my Thai aren't the best, we managed to communicate with smiles and sign language. When it was time to leave, Khun Htoo drove us to the airport during his lunch hour.
