Offering a restaurant, Pakse Hotel is set in a former cinema and casino, which is located 1.9 mi from Pakse International Airport. Free WiFi access is available in all areas. A very nice hotel by Laos standards. Room rate included an excellent breakfast buffet with eggs cooked to order, good coffee, and a wide array of other breakfast foods. The rooftop restaurant and bar has good happy hour deals from 5-6pm and great sunset views.
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. Very Clean Hotel! Very nice breakfast, Staff was very friendly. Enjoyed our stay and we booked again!
Located in Pakse, a 6-minute walk from Champasak Stadium, Heaven Guesthouse has accommodations with free WiFi and free private parking. I loved my stay at Heaven Guest House! The air conditioning is nice and cold, the parking is easy, the location is really really close to an open market, movie theatre, supermarket, hot pot buffet, and night market. The WiFi is great, and the host Tina is the best. Tina and I went to lots of different places in Pakse and I got to try so many various kinds of food that I wouldn't have known existed had I not been with a local. At night we would sometimes have dinner and music outside the hotel with her friends. She also speaks perfect English since she lived for many years in the USA. I highly recommend this place. It was definitely the highlight of my time in Pakse.
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. We stayed 6 nights in le jardin and they where amazing. The staff is fantastic, so friendly and helpfull. We had an excellent private tour to the Bolaven plateau with a very good stop for lunch. The driver also was our guide and he really tried to tell us about the area. The hotel also arranged our transfer to Ratchathani airport and that went really smoothly, including border passing. Oké, the location is a bit further from the centre but we didn't mind. You can easely walk and it's quieter at night. They also gave us a good tip for a good massage. When we return to Pakse, we will definitely stay here again.
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.
Located in Pakse, Chato Hostel provides air-conditioned rooms with free WiFi. Chato Hostel was our first hostel experience. Convinced us to do it again. We were greeted with a huge smile and a hello. The hostel is spotless from top to bottom. Beds were very comfortable, shower was hot, and the female dorm where we stayed was quiet and we finally had a comfortable bed to sleep in. We arrived very early and were able to store our bags until our room was ready. We were going to ride the Bolaven plateau and were able to store our knapsacks until we came back, no charge! We stayed again after Bolaven. Great place, great value, great staff! Thanks so much!!
Sanga Hostel is set in Pakse, less than 5 minutes' walk from Wat Luang and just 10 minutes' walk from the Kong River. Yellow (the manager) and her staff are simply great. Very friendly and attentive. I stayed a couple of nights there and already kind of felt like home. The facilities are super clean and look pretty new. The dorms are quite spacious, with AC and a fan. Each bed has its own large curtain (great privacy), a plug and light. The bunk beds are built in a way that you don't even feel your upper/lower neighbour move. It's great. The way the common area is designed makes it easy to talk to other guests. Location is very central. They can accomodate any requests such as bike rentals, information on Bolaven plateau and waterfalls, bus tickets, tuk tuk, etc. And on top of it, free water refills, complimentary bananas, tea, watermelon and homemade banana bread are provided every day.
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. See above for my comments on what I like. Think oasis in an otherwise busy typical city in Southeast Asia
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!

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.

Pakse is a large city that serves as a staging post for most travellers in southern Laos. As such the city, which is mainly a sprawling ribbon development with no great attractions other than its location. Le Jardin is a reasonably priced hotel that is used as a stopover by travellers. It’s principal attractions are the pool in the garden, the incredible staff service. The rooms are well furnished and maintained.
Located a bit away from the centre, but the view from the hotel and room both were awesome (overlooking Golden Buddha and Mekong). Dinner was good too as were staff. Free breakfast had variety and was of good quality. Pool looked great although we didn't get time to use it. The spa was great and good value for money.
A very nice hotel by Laos standards. Room rate included an excellent breakfast buffet with eggs cooked to order, good coffee, and a wide array of other breakfast foods. The rooftop restaurant and bar has good happy hour deals from 5-6pm and great sunset views.
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.
If you’re looking for the best place to stay in Pakse, look no more.
