An out of town alternative
Highway 105, Mae Sot T: (055) 534 651, (084) 812 8796
On the main highway passing through town, just beside the SP Kitchen sits the Pin Guest House.
It's a gorgeous wooden house containing 14 very well laid-out rooms, all with an abundance of teak furniture and large comfortable beds. There's also TV and a fridge, and all rooms come with air-con. The staff here are extremely friendly an helpful, though they don't speak a huge amount of English. There's internet available, and a small coffee terrace. The building is near the main road so noise could be an issue, but the reality is that the traffic flow is almost non-existent. If you prefer to stay out of the city this could suit you, particularly if you have your own transport. On the opposite side of the road the affiliated Pin Hotel has rooms for similar price; it caters predominantly to truckers and travelling salesmen and is often full. The rooms are decent.
