Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My friend and I were on a motorbike tour, we arrived in Mae Sot and where kinda winging it for accommodation. We parked up at Krua Canadian cafe bar and got our bearings. We knew of the Teak hotel by reputation and after asking Canadian guy, we were on our way, it wasn't far for us to ride, round the block we had rode in on. Reception was good, cash money and keys. . . boom. Key rings are kinda big. . . ! Room was good size, sure it was a little dated but had clean feel to it. Shower room was ok, plenty power from hot shower, towels could maybe do with an upgrade. The amount of teak would is mind blowing, the head board was almost a foot think, with stunning carvings, see pics. We went back to Canadian for our dinner which was very good, plenty red wine at good price. It's a relaxed hotel and seems like has regular or family guests, so felt safe and secure as everyone was seen coming up stairs. Some parking, but was full buy morning, internet was ok. . . . didn't see food on site, so we had breakfast at . . . . yes you guessed it, the Canadian cafe. We took a ride down to border, gets busy with traffic, but it is possible to keep left and do a U-turn under bridge, or park up and look across from under bridge to another country . . . I will stay here if I visit again

I have made several visit to Mae Sot and stay at other hotels by last time. But somehow I am not satisfied. I have found this hotel accidently by cycling around mae sot. It is situated in front of Siam Commercial Bank, walking distance to Burmese Market and night market etc... The room is huge and the price is really cheap. I really love huge wooden teak decor and believe all these woods from Myanmar. I paid 500 Bahts for huge room and cheap laundry available too. Since the first stay, I always stay there.

The staff and owner are very nice and helpful. I stayed 2 or 3 nights, it's a blur. I cancelled one night and they kindly agreed to it. The breakfast I missed but they allowed me to help myself to what was there anyway. The room was very clean and spacious. It was a welcome break after the noise and pollution of Bangkok. It is off the beaten track and locals will not know it as they don't need to. As always in Thailand negotiate with the man who's tuktuk or taxi you're going to take, they do try! It's not the cheapest or most central hotel in Maesot but it's one of the best at that price. The wood work I could live without. Deforestation is rampant.

Came in from Mae Sot from Myanmar and had to take a shared shuttle bus from the border to the center of Mae Sot for 200 bhat. It was quite far from the border. We asked directions for First Hotel once we got to downtown Mae Sot, but few people knew where it was or were willing to help us. Finally, a gentleman who owned a store kindly drove us there. (I don’t know how we would have found it without him!) Upon arrival, we found a woman at the front desk whose English was relatively good, but she soon left for the evening, and no one was at the front desk who could or would help us from about five o’clock in the afternoon to seven o’clock the next morning. Several people sat around watching television in the lobby, but they seemed disinterested in helping us. (I wasn’t even sure they worked there!) The room itself was mostly fine – although one of the mattresses was uncomfortable and the toilet had a pool of water left over from the previous occupants -- and you really couldn’t use the toilet without getting in the water. If you’re incredibly self-sufficient, and don’t mind feeling as if you’re staying in a ghost hotel, you’ll enjoy the reasonable rate.

Great convivial place friendly staff especially Anne. Would stay here again. Well located, good wifi Could do with a bit more attention in the rooms regarding the stained curtains and groggy bathrooms but perfectly adequate at 280 single fan 400 twin a/c. I think any modernisation is focused on more wood and its carving. A passionate owner, one who must have purchased the timber when an opportunity arose.

The heavy, dark carved wood everywhere was awesome, and probably most North Americans will never have seen this much intricately carved wood all in one place. The bedding was unpleasant, but you’re here to look at the amazing woodwork that the owner told me is constantly being worked on by carpenters from Burma, not to gaze at the linens so don't let that stop you from experiencing the dark woodwork. The marble bathrooms add to the experience, but slippery when wet! The location is central, although far from the main bus terminal and the Burmese border. Booking.com indicated no availability, but there were rooms when we went to the front desk. For ~450bht per night for a double, why wouldn’t you stay for a night? Every place I stayed had a combination A & C electrical outlet, so I didn’t need a plug adapter for my U.S. A-type plug. WiFi depended on where you were in the building. There was AC, but there were also mosquitoes so I used my net.

In the whole of Thailand we have never found a place with such a wonerfull owner, incredible wooden creations, bathrooms made of marble. Over the period of our stay we had 4 different rooms, there were no bugs in any of them, each time they were clean, fresh towels were brought daily, free botteled water was a nice touch. The only thing missing was warm water, but I don't think you're gonna get it in this price range anywhere around.

From the outside, this hotel looks like a real dump, but once you step inside, you are welcomed by antique teak furniture that is absolutely fantastic. The furniture alone make it a worthwhile option. The lobby staff allow you to choose a room other than theo one they show you. The rooms are priced at 280 and 450 Baht respectively for fan and air-con rooms. There is no breakfast, to the best of my knowledge. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. The window was slightly broken in my room, but the glass was intact. The room was full of teak furniture. There is satellite TV, a fridge and free wifi. The aircon rooms are quiet, but the fan ones are prone to traffic and street noise. There is a car park outside. The shower is good enough, but not superb. There is plenty of hot water. I would stay there again. I am not sure whether they clean the rooms every day. Mine wasn't cleaned. The aircon in my room had no temperature control - only the numbers 1 and 2. However, it was cold during the day, but a little warm at night.

Stayed here for just 1 night. It is a very old hotel and has a lot of character, it is fairly clean, although stained curtains and off white bedding sheets. The hotel is full of ornate wooden carvings and furniture from Burma i think. It was worth the 450 baht just to see the carvings, you just dont get that in any modern hotel. The room was fairly big with aircon and the bathroom although old had original marble. In its day this hotel must have been fantastic. It still has charm today, and for the price it is a very good choice. I would stay there again if in town.....enjoy
