Baan Mae Arom

A cheerful homestay

More on Amphawa

Set in a 100 year-old teak wood house on the north side of the canal that’s a decent walk east of the market, Baan Mae Arom is a long-running homestay with a friendly atmosphere.

Travelfish says:

The manager speaks good English and has a great reputation for making sure both Thai and foreign guests enjoy their stay. Rooms are set in a line and come with air-con, TVs, WiFi and firm beds, but they have limited windows and lack the charm of our top two homestay choices. Shared hot water bathrooms are located across a communal kitchen area from the rooms. On the bright side, Baan Mae Arom boasts a lovely lobby/hang out area beside the canal with tables on the floor, framed photos of Thai royalty, Buddhist monks and the like hung with care from the wood teak walls, and there’s even an electric massage chair that’s occupied by a giant stuffed gorilla when not being used by guests. Baan Mae was also one of the first homestays in Amphawa to arrange for its guests to offer food to monks on their morning alms round, and they continue to offer a range of activities and quality tours to the outlying sights of Samut Songkhram province. It’s also the only place in town that told us straight up: rates are cut in half on weekdays.
