For small town Myanmar, Princess Hotel is quite nice - sure, the electricity may go off during the night (though during outages before 11pm or so their own generator kicks in), the carpet may be a little shabby, the A/C might not really crank - but if you are expecting Western style gloss and amenities you are in the wrong country.
During my stay (during Thingyan, April 2013), double occupancy was US$60/night, including a basic American breakfast, A/C, flat screen TV, private bath, and Wi-Fi. Laundry service and other amenities available on-site. Centrally located.
Keng Tung is great BTW, they don't get a ton of tourists and were amazingly friendly and welcoming - especially during Thingyan, and I much preferred the old-style Thingyan of Keng Tung to the more rave-like, power hose Thingyan of Yangon.
At time of visit, you could do day-treks around Keng Tung but were not allowed to stay overnight in the villages, and not allowed to travel into or our of Keng Tung except by air. Not too far out of town is also a very nice hot springs where you can picnic - little shops there will bring your food and drinks over to your resting spot for you!
If you go to Myanmar, I would recommend a stop in Keng Tung! Please be a conscientious, respectful and friendly traveler though - don't ruin their amazing hospitality for the rest of us! :)
