    La Residence

    Set in an attractive wooden home in the middle of town, this small guesthouse has plenty of charm and character, if not quite the comfort level of the smarter competition. Rooms in the main house are with shared bathroom, but the garden bungalows include a private bathroom. There is an atmospheric bar-restaurant downstairs with draught Myanmar Beer.

    Red Dragon Hotel

    This is a high-rise – and architecturally uninspiring – building, so you might want to request a room on a lower floor as it doesn't have a lift. Cheapest rooms involve a shared bathroom, but there are also lots of air-con units with private bathroom. There is a rooftop restaurant for breakfast (included) and extensive views over the town.

    Riverside @ Hsipaw Resort

    Located across the river from Hsipaw itself, this is an impressive boutique resort from the Amata group of hotels. The bungalow rooms are among the most spacious in town, and some have good views of the countryside. It is possible to cross the river by local boat, or you have a fairly circuitous drive back to town.

    Nam Khae Mao Guesthouse

    This central guesthouse has pretty much the cheapest beds in town, but as with everything in life, you get what you pay for. The rooms are small, but the shared bathrooms are clean and include hot water. Road noise can be dreadful.

    Yee Shin Guesthouse

    Centrally located and run by a very helpful family. Rooms with shared bathrooms are tiny, but also have a tiny impact on your wallet. There are spacious air-con rooms in a newer building that come with private bathroom and hot water. Facilities include table tennis, and staff can organise guides.
