Popular with the long-termers
740 Intharakiri Rd, Mae Sot T: (055) 531 590
Just fifty metres west down the road from No4 Guesthouse, Ban Thai is extremely popular with long-termers.
One reason may be the pleasant communal area out front, with a bunch of tables and chairs in a garden-terrace setting. This makes for a fine place to meet other travellers or just to catch up on your reading. The rooms are basic no-frills-style, and are slightly overpriced in comparison with the other options in Mae Sot, but they're still pretty cheap and if you throw in the atmosphere of the communal area this isn't a bad deal at all. The guest house is about 50m down a small lane, on the left side.
