Located at the junction of Khunlumpapas and Udom Chaonithet Roads, the relatively new Ngamta Hotel is a welcome addition to the midrange selection in Mae Hong Son.

If you can overlook its bright orange paint, it has reasonable rates and a very convenient central location, with spotlessly clean and very nicely decorated Lanna-esque rooms that come with air-con, hot shower, TV and fridge. Breakfast is included in the rates. Their well furnished, huge suites lined with varnished wood and spacious balconies overlooking the lake are simply spectacular, though not cheap.
The lobby is pleasant and there's a small restaurant and coffee shop attached. It's not quite as efficient and well organised as the Baiyoke over the road -- Ngamta’s not been around as long -- but it's certainly worth a go should that one be full (and it does lack Baiyoke’s sometimes busy and noisy downstairs bar). As always in Mae Hong Son, it's worth asking for a discount during quiet months.
