A long-standing Mae Hong Son institution, the old Panorama Hotel is located on the main road just before the traffic lights as you reach the town centre from the north and it is a useful budget to flashpacker hotel-style address.

That’s in terms of prices anyway and though there isn’t anything remotely flash about the hotel, the somewhat rundown exterior does hide some simple but well-maintained hotel-style rooms. The furniture may well have seen better days but some effort has been made with the decor and rooms are clean and come with air-con, hot ensuite showers, cable TV, WiFi and fridge—representing excellent value for money.

Our room came with a spacious and comfortable bed and choice of ceiling fan or air-con unit. Economy rooms are slightly smaller while standard versions come with tiny balconies which, though hardly the spot to relax and admire the view, do cut out a fair bit of the noise from the street below.

Downstairs houses a spacious pavement-side terrace where you can sup your complimentary morning tea or coffee behind which is an equally roomy teak-floored reception and communal area. The owners—an elderly Sino-Thai couple—are certainly friendly albeit with limited English, but the younger reception desk staff we met were very helpful with more than adequate language skills.

Heavy on the wood.

The same couple owns the newer annexe building across the road which houses their deluxe options but the uninspired concrete block has a first-floor carpark instead of the creaky old dark wood reception across the road and lacks any charm even if room interiors are better appointed and the furniture newer.

Location is convenient, right by the market and a short walk to the lake, and another advantage is that Panorama is large enough to have availability during all but the very busiest periods. All in all, while nothing flashy, this is a very competent and comfortable option with totally reasonable rates.
