On a busy winter weekend or bank holiday and particularly during sunflower blooming season, our number one choice Ban Farang’s private rooms can fill up, but never fear as the comfortable Mitkhoonyoum Hotel provides a more than adequate alternative.

Fortunately, Mitkhoonyoum with a central location on the east side of the main highway as it passes through town, is easy to find so you won’t have to ask anyone where the tricky to pronounce hotel is situated. A large, hand painted sign with its own elaborate Shan-style roof indicates the hotel’s main entrance where you’ll find a car-park to the right and reception and cafe area to the left.

An impressive two-storey teak building lies behind reception beyond which a flight of steps takes you down past a second construction housing the cheaper fan rooms through a lush garden to a third block containing the deluxe options.

Interiors are simple but clean and comfortable and feature minimal decor but maximum varnished wood. Fan and air-con rooms are very similar other than the choice of cooling systems and all rooms come with fridge, TV, WiFi and hot water ensuite showers. Deluxe rooms are larger and feature private balconies which provide garden rather than car-park views.

Pleasant grounds.

They also have a cafe and seating area in front of reception serving drinks and, in high season, simple food. The hotel definitely caters more to local than foreign visitors but the friendly boss speaks some English and is helpful and welcoming. As we said, perhaps not as cute as Ban Farang’s garden setting but a more than acceptable option for a night’s accommodation in Khun Yuam.
