9 Kyaing Nyan Rd, Kengtung
A bright pink building close to the SamYwet Hotel and just down the main street from the market, the Law Yee Chain Hotel isn't as good a deal as the Sam Ywet but the rooms are okay, if slightly overpriced, so it isn't a bad backup option.
There's WiFi, hot water for tea and coffee, TV with some cable channels and air-con, but the rooms though clean have seen slightly better days and the carpets are threadbare. Larger rooms at the front of the building have balconies. One advantage here is the coffee shop and bakery in the lobby. We were quoted low season rates which weren't so bad though they did admit there would be a high season supplement. As with a number of places in Kengtung, activities and transport can be organised at the hotel.
