"This hotel is the nicest hotel in Pakse, by a large margin. I'll preface this by saying I've stayed here several times but only in the "1 bedroom suite" room. Very comfortable bed and linens. Well maintained and clean. Serviceable internet, 2-3mbps which isn't insane but will be quite sufficient for emails and some video streaming. I've not swam in the pool but it looks clean and well maintained. The staff are very pleasant and eager to assist. Free shuttle to and from airport, which is a nice large airconditioned van. There are much cheaper options in Pakse but this is the "fancy" hotel in the region."

"Although Pakse Hotel is one of the oldest hotels in Pakse City it has managed to stay beautiful, clean and well maintained; it continues to exude its old world charm. For the price we paid we were not expecting too much that is why as soon as we entered our room we were delighted to see how spacious and tastefully decorated it is. Wi-Fi was strong enough to ensure a decent internet connection. We checked the rooftop bar to enjoy a good view of the surrounding area. The Frenchman at the reception helped us arrange a tuktuk to visit Wat Phou Temple. He was also very responsive to our request for info about the cereal served at the buffet table. Breakfast was acceptable although it can be improved by adding more items to the menu. Overall, my sister and I enjoyed our time at the Pakse Hotel. Highly recommended!"

"I often stay in Pakse Hotels, I’ve stayed in most of them and none have what I really want so I was keen to stay in this new In Touch hotel. First the good, my room was the best room I have found in Pakse, large comfortable bed in an adequately large room and great view. The bathroom also the best, smallish but very pleasant walk in shower. Keen and enthusiastic staff. Complementary coffee and tea on the ground floor 24/7 and a swimming pool on the roof with spectacular views. Now the down side, the TV did not have any English language news programs, breakfast choice had cold sad looking fried eggs. There was no bread, cereals or milk all easily available locally. Finally, the entrance lobby is bland, nothing to make you think you are in Lao. This needs some enhancement, maybe even a small bar at the far end. When I next stay in Pakse this will be my first choice and when the riverbank works are completed this will the most spectacular and convenient location too. "

"We really enjoyed our stay at You Empire Hostel. We had the private room which was very nice and clean, with a private bathroom and balcony. We were there during the Lao new year which allowed us to party and discuss with the staff which were very friendly. Nice common areas too. Only inconvenience would be that the night market was right in front of our room, and the music is pretty loud - but stops around 11pm so nothing too bad. "

"Great hotel for the money, the bathrooms do need updating but not a problem as clean. The beds are the best in Pakse and very comfortable. This is a great little hotel with the owner on hand and great staff. Breakfasts are wonderful on the roof restaurant with stunning views to 3 sides. I have read a few negative things about this place re the cleanliness of the bathrooms and house keeping in general. All have a little substance but please don’t let that put you off, everywhere in Laos is dusty and it must be incredibly hard to keep anywhere away from dust. This hotel is one of the best, small personal and great position. Sure things in Laos could be cleaner but remember Laos is not a western country, anyone expecting western standards haven’t read up about south east Asia. Enjoy Pakse before it becomes too modern it’s a great cultural place. Not many around anymore as western values slowly creep in "

"this hotel is fine for one or two nights if you don't intend to linger in the room. accomm perfectly adequate and good value. Recommend you get a room with a window, and to the rear of the building to avoid the ( minor ) road noise. Very easy to communicate with reception staff and better than other Pakse hotels we tried"

"My room was bright and had amazing views of the surrounding hills. Breakfast is a mixture of European and Lao cuisine. The latter is absolutely delicious, especially rice porridge and other meat and vegetable dishes. All the staff are extremely friendly and respectful. Authentic Lao hospitality. The manager is an amazing guy. He took me on his scooter to a coffee shop where I bought home roasted Lao coffee. The location is in the city centre. Pakse is a small city with amazing locals, tasty food and wonderful views of the River Mekong and the hills nearby. There is also a wonderful temple. The whole city is well worth a visit."
