A brand new and spotless hotel located just down a sidestreet close to the central market (and they do have a second location on the airport road), this is possibly the all round best deal in Kengtung.

The outside may look slightly off putting since you enter by a ground floor car-park, but the rooms are very good and all come with air-con, TV and WiFi. There are 27 rooms split between three floors and since it’s new and not very well known yet you may have a better chance of finding availability here in high season than elsewhere. Reception is located at the rear of the car-park and behind that is a funky wooden bar and breakfast area. Trekking information and booking is available and as usual helpful staff have a decent level of English. A good flashpacker choice. Rates include breakfast.
