The Picturebook is a very pleasant guesthouse, good location, nice, clean rooms with everything you need included air con and fridge. the young staff is very friendly and helpful.

I brought a group of 9 on a business type trip to Mae sot, we usually stay at the Ban Thai, which is great but PB was a fantastic new find. It's an NGO supporting a training program for Karen. The service is great, Wi-Fi is strong, super clean, reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

I stayed for a night in the Map Room. Staff are friendly, attentive, and fast. Room is clean, aircon is cold, and it is quiet except for barking dogs. Overall it's a great experience. Why 4 and not 5? There are a few little kinks which does not prevent me from recommending the place, but keeps me from giving a...

A very chic towards the hipster hotel. We loved it. Rooms are very comfortable in polished concrete with individual balcony/garden seating. Cooked breakfast included. An oasis right in the middle of Mae Sot.

Probably the best accommodation in Mae Sot. Nice rooms, nice garden, nice atmosphere. Not everything is perfect (breakfast, coffee) and the stuff might not always be 100% professional, but they make all up with their kindness and gentleness. The resort employs mostly young refugees from Myanmar , which means you support a good corse on top.

Staff are given training opportunities and profits but back into there development. The staff were so helpful, friendly and full of joy. I much prefer this style of service to the...

As a guest of Child's Dream study trip we stayed in this lovely place. Super clean hotel with its own modern characteristics. The social venture aspect is helpful in this area, and the learning staff is sometimes a bit insecure though they make it all up with their eagerness and a smile. Well done!
