Auntie’s B&B

A family vibe

More on Mae Sot

Fronted by a coffee shop serving all-day breakfast in an old wooden house, Auntie’s B&B (or Guesthouse) is worth considering if you prefer an intimate, family-run place to stay.

Travelfish says:

Relying on a couple of clean shared hot-water bathrooms, the four guestrooms occupy the upper floor of a second house set back beyond a roofed common area with large fish tanks and potted plants near the kitchen -- it stays quiet back here despite Auntie’s location on a central stretch of Intarakiree.

The rooms are cramped but charming, with soft spring beds, windows and colourful paintings of hippos and other animals on fretted wood walls painted baby blue and cream. All rooms come with air-con and moveable fan; they shut off the air if you opt for fan alone. The accommodation is more memorable and comfortable than at the nearby Baifern Guesthouse but the Thai owners speak limited English. We found them endearing nonetheless.

With Northern Thai banners, antique cabinets, a picture of Santa Claus and a wooden stag’s head among the eclectic decor in the coffee shop, this is not a place that you’ll soon forget. The location puts you right in the heart of downtown and WiFi is free. Fresh coffee and breakfast is not included in room rates but a plate of eggs, bacon and toast will run you only around 50 baht.
