Another new entry into Mae Salong’s accommodation scene as of 2015, boutique-style Yao Hong Fun boasts 17 modern rooms in all with classy decor. It’s located around a kilometre west of town on the highway, so it’s not very handy unless you have your own transport, but during low season it does have some solid rooms for fair rates.

(We do find their high season prices way too high for Mae Salong though, even if rooms are good.) Their coffee and tea shop is set right on the roadside, behind which is a grassy parking lot with a couple of two-storey blocks of rooms at the rear. We’ll excuse their lack of garden for now since they’ve only just opened but the tea shop is very pleasant. Rooms all have a small balcony (with just enough space for a table and two chairs), and come in double or twin bed versions, with a couple of extra large rooms for a couple of hundred more baht.

The style is modern, simple but clean, with varnished concrete walls (similar to, though somewhat more subtle, thanOsman House), rattan furnishings and plenty of orange and green cushions scattered around. Rooms are spacious enough and well appointed with TV, fridge, air-con, modern bathrooms and WiFi throughout. A small cafe serves the included breakfasts. It seems primarily aimed at the local market but since they’ve bothered to put an English language sign outside (which many others don’t), and staff we met were very friendly, we’ll bother to include them too. It all looks a bit too new for now but given a little time to bed in and, hopefully, for high season rates to settle at a more reasonable level, this will be a good address for those who aren’t fussed about being in the centre of town.
