DK Hotel

Decent rooms in a central location

More on Mae Sot

The aging DK Hotel often gets passed up in favour of the newer guesthouses, but it still offers decent budget rooms in a large blue building located slap bang in the centre of Mae Sot.

Travelfish says:

After climbing a wide set of stairs and entering the cavernous lobby we were distracted by the odd paper collages of people’s faces, a wood cow’s head, antique pottery and a long lineup of chunky wood tables.

Spread over three floors and accessed by stairs, the rooms are spacious and well kept even if they look like they haven’t been updated since the 1980s. They all come with high ceilings, worn-down linens on hard beds, basic hot-water wet bathrooms, desks, balconies and free WiFi.

There are loads of rooms and every local knows the DK, making it a fine backup option if your first choices are full. It’s also not a bad choice if you’re keen to stay right downtown and Auntie’s and Baifern are too cramped for you; the identically priced fan rooms are considerably larger here.

Staff speaks some English and was friendly enough when we passed through. The large car park is surrounded by small shops, including a massage place and beauty salon run by an affable guy named Mr Job who likes to practice his English with the foreigners who pass through. There’s also a motorbike rental place around the corner.
