Moderate rooms in central Mae Sot
185 Pasatwithee Rd, Mae Sot T: (055) 531 176, (055) 531 376
The Siam Hotel is right beside Mae Sot's gem trading market so it's usually pretty busy with local traders and passing businessmen.
One of the better hotels in town, the Siam has fan rooms with cold water and two different sizes of air-con rooms both with hot water, of which the cheaper room is the better deal. The downstairs lobby is beside a small cafe and restaurant -- both of which are good viewpoints from which to observe some of the frenzied trading. this can be a good way to pass some time, just don't try to buy any gemstones unless you really know what your doing.
