Terrific flashpacker digs

More on Mae Sot

Falling somewhere between large guesthouse and small hotel, Baan Rabiangmai boasts some of the cleanest, most comfortable and best-equipped rooms in Mae Sot -- look no further if you want all of the creature comforts.

Travelfish says:

Located in a quiet residential area around a half-kilometre west of downtown, the four-floor concrete building has a large ground-floor common area with high ceilings, sofas, a bunch of wood tables and a mix of contemporary and traditional Thai decor.

This tasteful design extends into the rooms, which come in several different sizes and are accessed by a lift. All rooms are equipped with large safes, fridges, kitchenettes with microwaves and dishes, dining and sitting areas, widescreen LCD TVs, soft beds, desks and spacious bathrooms with herbal soaps. Dark-wood trim and gold-painted woodcarvings add a touch of warmth, while natural light flows in through several large windows. Pricier rooms have extra beds and living rooms separated from the bedrooms.

The English-speaking receptionist greeted us with a smile before quickly showing us a room -- she seemed proud of the accommodation and rightfully so. The nearby Irawadee Resort offers pricier rooms with gaudy decor; we’d opt for the larger and better-equipped rooms at Baan Rabiangmai any day. When we stopped by in April ’16 the hotel was offering discounted rates, which we’ve listed here under “Low” season.
