Staying three nights. Located by wall of old town and easy walking to sights, bars and restaurants. Room basic but clean and comfortable with TV and air conditioning. Great breakfasts. Recommend the croque Madame. Coffee also great here. Very nice staff. Mainly dealt with Pack for whom nothing was too much trouble.

I did not stay at this guesthouse, but we did book our trekking with them. We trekked with our guide Tong in a private trek, only my husband and I. The trekking was perfect. Very challenging and not for the faint of heart. If you want to get off the beaten path and see the culture of the Karen people,... More

The guesthouse consists of eloquent style, yet has a casual feel to it, which has helped me settle in quickly. The friendly hosts are also chefs themselves, and promote a 'family orientated' space - as they, too, have a 6 year old daughter, that loves to play with other children who are booked into the guesthouse. Should you wish to... More

So we stayed here on the back of the positive reviews here on trip advisor. To be honest, I didn't feel that it was all that special. Certainly its got some charm; the rooms are wooden and different from your usual stay in Thailand. But the care and attention to detail that truly marks a place out were missing. Bulbs... More

The rooms are a good size, the people are friendly. At the edge of the old city, this is a nice place to stay for a reasonable price. They provide unlimited free water which is very nice. It felt safe and secure.
