Boondee House
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 26, 2013

I stayed at Boondee House last year and decided to return this year for a couple of days on my loop from Chiang Mai, Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Son, Pai, Chiang Mai. This time the weather was very hot so the air con room was great. The bed was comfortable for me and each day fresh towels and water was left and the bed made up and room cleaned. It was nice to sit on the new outdoor patio and look out at the mountains. Mr T and family were welcoming and helpful - Mr T helped with organising a motorbike and even presented me with a box containing local rice delicacies. They are very gracious and kind hosts. The guesthouse is within easy walking to the morning market where you can find the best ever street food. If you go to Mae Hong Son, visit Boondee Guesthouse.

If there is one thing I will not forget about this guesthouse, it is the owner, who never stops smiling and genuinely cares about your stay. From the moment I showed up to his window, he helped me understand the map of Mae Hong Son, rent a motorcycle, suggested places to eat, and even gave me a lift to a bus station on his day off.

The guesthouse is located centrally in town. It has a nice common room on the second floor where you also have access to a microwave, free tea, and plates/cups/utensils if you ever want to pick up food at a market and bring it back home.

The room was very spacious with a fan, aircon, a refrigerator, hangers, TV, coffee making facility. The sheets and towels were clean and smelled fresh. The bathroom was also clean, with a good pressure shower and hot water.

I enjoyed my stay at Boondee and absolutely recommend for other travelers!

Room Tip: Stay on a second floor, where you can see the mountains from the common area.

Mr Too was very friendly and helpful. He picked us up from the bus station and took us back there at the end of our 2 night stay. There were maps and general tourist info about. We appreciated the pleasant outdoor space to sit or to make use of the microwave, and tea available. All the practical things were in the room: aircon, fan, hanging rail, wifi, 2 chairs. The large, old fridge was noisy however and might be best used at the outside area as a communal fridge. Having the linked area to the shower room/wc was useful for drying clothes and it would have been helpful to have a drying rack out there. Also, as it is open, some form of mozzie net on the slatted area would be good, or to replace the current shower curtain arrangement with something better. A new floor mat would also be an improvement. The room was a good size but on the dark side, and it was good to have a lamp and not always rely on the harsher overhead light. The walls are thin, but we were not disturbed after 11pm, but you need to be prepared to rise early - at 6am things come to life all around. We enjoyed a visit to the temple on the hill, to take in the sunset; and the lake is a pleasant spot, particularly with the night market and food stalls. We also went to the Sunday market which is about 15 mins walk, and Mr Too advised us of the retail store of Mae Hong Son.We found one restaurant (name unknown) within 5 mins walk from Boondee towards the crossroads, on the left hand side, where we really enjoyed the food. Overall, we felt very relaxed at Mae Hong Son, and Boondee House, as part of our bus travel on "the Loop".

Room Tip: We had room 1 which was the one next to the stairs, on the upper floor, and only had one neighbourin...

Boondee house tucked on a row of houses. The owner was friendly and shown us interesting places around the town. The room was spacious and clean. They will clean the room daily and has free wifi too. It’s just a walking distance to restaurants, cafes and night market. Wat Phrathat Doi Kong Moo (Temple on the hill) and Wat Phra Non (a 12-metre long reclining Buddha) are just behind and a walking distance only.You can walk up the stairs to visit Temple on the Hill. The owner even fetch us to the airport without charge. We had a pleasant stays here.

I stayed in Boondee Guesthouse recently and found it more than comfortable - within easy walking distance of the town area. I was greeted by Mr Too's mother and re- negotiated the initial price she offered for the room which was good fun and which later caused a laugh between myself and the good lady. For me the room was fine - I stayed 3 nights. Mr Too was very very helpful - he took me to the bus station, provided directions to places of interest, provided a bicycle - i went on a day trip with him and enjoyed the day - at this time of the year Mae Hong Son was very quiet but well worth the visit. Recommend breakfast at one of the cafes leading into the day market. The loop from Chiang Mai , Mae Sariang, Mae Hong Son, Pai to CM - by bus - in my opinion - outstanding

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.
