Le Jardin Hotel is set in Pakse, 1969 feet from International bus station KM 2. Free WiFi is featured throughout the property and free private parking is available on site. The owner & manager was very nice, helpfull & she always do her best to help you! The team was also very nice. That was a perfect stop, thanks again!!
Champasak Grand Hotel is a 15-minute ride from Pakse Airport. Offering comfortable accommodations with free Wi-Fi, it has an outdoor pool, which is surrounded by lush tropical garden. For a little extra money I upgraded on arrival to the suit as I wanted my own private balcony. Staff were more than friendly and the breakfasts were amazing. Has a homely atmosphere like you are one of the family. Thank you for everything and I will definitely return.
Located in Pakse, a 6-minute walk from Champasak Stadium, Heaven Guesthouse provides accommodations with free WiFi and free private parking.

Champasak Palace Hotel is located in Pakse District and is a 15-minute walk from the downtown area. It features free internet in public areas and free return airport pick-up services. Pretty cool to stay in an actual palace! The Reception staff were very helpful in sorting onward travel.
Xuanmai Garden Resort is a 15-minute drive from Pakse’s center. Guests can enjoy their meals at the on-site restaurant. Xuanmai Garden Resort has a warm and comfortable Laotian feel. It is the ultimate experience for a weary traveler to land in Ngoc’s care! The hotel is close to the airport, but away from the hustle and bustle of Pakse. For us it was our go to spot as we explored southern Laos. Any travel arrangements you need will be taken care of. The meals are made with both love and fresh ingredients! Treat yourself to Ngoc’s cooking class - it is wonderful! Enjoy your stay!
Located in Pakse, 2.4 miles from International bus station KM 2, PhuBachiang Golf & Resort Pakse has accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking, a shared lounge and a garden. This place is an absolute steal for the price! Yes it’s out of town but there’s nothing a great deal to do in Pakse. You can walk around the golf course, the pool is lovely and the staff are very friendly. Great place to just escape from it all! Also, on a side note we are very appreciative to the staff member who tried to help recover our phone from Thaket. She went to extra lengths phoning friends and the local police, this was very appreciated!
Cloud 9 Hostel in Pakse provides adults only accommodations with a restaurant and a bar. Very nice and comfy hostel. Facilities are modern and well decorated. The staff is very friendly, helpful and kind. The bathroom was always spotless, as well as the dormitory. The hotel’s restaurant is also a big hit. Middle eastern food to give you a break from the fried rice and noodles ^^ All in all very pleasant and comfy stay in Cloud 9.
On average, 3-star hotels in Pakse cost $29 per night, and 4-star hotels in Pakse are $0 per night. If you're looking for something really special, a 5-star hotel in Pakse can be found for $0 per night, on average (based on Booking.com prices).
I have been to Pakse a number of times, it backs onto the majestic Mekong River. I can thoroughly recommend both the Champasak Grand Hotel and the Pakse Hotel. There is a lovely market located in the centre of the town where you can buy nearly anything.
Decent restaurants and good to get convenience items, but not much to do directly in the town. Good hub for day-trips via motorcycle or tour, but expect to get really dirty if you do them via motorcycle as only the very largest of the main roads are paved outside of the town. Not much nature nearby, all flat areas have been cleared and converted to farmland. It takes a bit of work to get to areas with a bit of nature, but it's nice once you do so. Once you're out of the town the small villages vary from somewhat picturesque and mostly traditional to modern cement. Definitely worth exploring the countryside via motorcycle. Waterfalls are nice, but can be a bit crowded (by local standards).
We chose the more expensive 4,000 island tour expecting to see more. We spent 5 minutes at 2 waterfalls, which are impressive, in an 11 hour day and that was it! The rest of the day, 10hrs and 50 minutes was spent waiting for, or sitting on, old buses and vans. The much cheaper Bolonan plateau would have shown us villages, crafts and agriculture and been much better.
There is not much to see in Pakse itself. However, it makes a good base from which to explore Southern Laos. The Bolavan Plateau is nearby for scenery and waterfalls. The Wat Phu temple complex near Champasak is a short distance away. There are some good bars/restaurants (including budget options) if you need somewhere to eat and drink on an evening. It is worth going to the Daolin, Xuan Mai or Sanga (ground floor of the Sanga hostel) restaurants if you want something on the cheaper side. Se Se Wine and Beer is a good place for somewhere to drink but their food choice is a bit limited. A lot of people seem to rate Dok Mai Lao (an Italian restaurant) but was not that impressed with it when I went - maybe I chose the wrong thing as the pizzas looked good. The Immigration Office is in Pakse, near the market in the centre, if you need to extend your visa. However, bear in mind it is only open for limited hours Monday to Friday. I was told to be there for 2pm.
We had 3 full days but would have liked one more to see the ancient temple Wat Phou and possibly also the 4000 islands. We had an amazing time kayaking /white water rafting and 2-day zip-lining adventure (with Green Discovery travel agency). Highly recommend - if not for the faint hearted. The town itself is fine (with some good restaurants including a great Italian) but not that much to see.
Pakse is a small town that embodies the Laos local culture and has many sites and landmarks to visit. Being a short hop from Thailand it is a good place to experience a different culture, I am always surprised how different, yet similar the Laos and Thai cultures can be! I enjoy my visits to Laos, when I get away from the bustle of Bangkok.

The best hostel in Laos! Staff were amazing and so friendly and helpful, cost slightly more than usual hostel yes but it is worth every cent they really go out of their way to make sure you are happy. Helpful organising trips etc - the best.
The golf field was really beautiful and close to mountains. Resort was surrounded by beautiful landscape. Perfect escape from noise. Swimming pool was great as well.
The staff made up for so many shortcomings of the town of Pakse. Pool was clean and mostly quiet. Sleeping quality was good. Breakfast was good.
From the moment I arrived the hospitality was exceptional. Ta and brother Na know how to make one's stay in Pakse meaningful.
For a little extra money I upgraded on arrival to the suit as I wanted my own private balcony. Staff were more than friendly and the breakfasts were amazing. Has a homely atmosphere like you are one of the family. Thank you for everything and I will definitely return.

Nearby Airport, Excellent services
I booked the room for my girlfriend and her cousin who live on a rice farm 100 kms north of Pakse. She travelled to Pakse to see the Orthodontist, and it was an arduous bus trip in the heat. Everything was perfect, they had a nice room, very clean with beautiful white sheets, breakfast was magnificent, and they were very happy with the whole experience
Can’t fault this hostel! The staff were so lovely and welcoming. The facilities were great, definitely one of the best hostels we’ve stayed in. The beds are super comfy. It has a really nice homely vibe.
The friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness of the place - it is definitely one of the cleanest hostels I have seen.
We liked everything except the location and the meals
