I'm not sure I would 'splash out' for this place again at $60 a night for the double room we had. It was a huge room, and very comfortable. But you don't really get a lot for your money; and this is rural Laos, mind you, where $60 ought to go pretty far. You are by no means close to the river, or aware that the river is there, whereas there is at least one cheerful looking guesthouse where the little ferry departs that is very much perched on the riverbank. I didn't stay there, obviously, so I really can't comment in detail. I'm only saying that I rather felt that we had spent more than we needed to on something that in the end was not at all special.

Tai, the manager, is a local guy, very friendly and helpful. He is very 'laid back,' with all the virtues and faults that this may be taken to imply. The kitchen staff under his direction, for example, are as slow as Christmas. Nothing can ever seem to be urgent or pressing. And perhaps it never is. But it sometimes seems so, when you're waiting for no apparent reason, don't you think? Oh well. . .

If you have visited the temples of Angkor, Wat Phu will seem rather Ho Hum, I dare say. There are some lovely carved lintels; the serpent stairway, the alligator cut out, the Budda footprint, the bas-relief elephant--all of these up top--and a few other things are very striking. The little museum has some excellent things in it, with truly excellent descriptions and explanations in English to a native speaker standard. But above all it is the location that makes Wat Phu seem so special, being laid out up a hillside. We had intended to stay for three nights, but cut this to two since we managed to have a petty thorough look around this relatively small site on the afternoon that we drove down from Pakse after our flight from Siem Reap. We came back the next day on a rented motorbike, saw the museum, indeed saw it all again, and then did a bit of exploring.

Don't miss the opportunity of getting to the river's edge and walking for a while to see how people live. The people are as friendly as can be, and the dogs are as laid back as the kitchen staff of the Inthira Hotel.

Our positive opinion of Inthira Hotel in Champasak was doubtless influenced by the fact that they upgraded us from a $49 Superior Room to a $79 Duplex Room at no extra charge. The dupplex room was two floors. The lower floor had a sitting area, desk, TV and a semi-bathroom with a tub. The upper floor was a sleeping area and generously sized bathroom with a rainfall showerhead. The bed was big and comfortable. The whole setup was sylish and attractive.

Breakfast was good. We had the American breakfast. My scrambled eggs were perfectly cooked. I had excellent sauteed mushrooms instead of bacon. There was a good roll and my wife and I shared a plate of banana and watermelon. Orange juice and coffee/tea were also included. All of this was included with our room.

We had one dinner here. Elizabeth had a steak with black pepper gravy, french fries and veggies and thought it was good. I had larb gai -- spicy Lao chicken with herbs, plus sticky rice. This was also very good.

Staff -- especially the manager, Mr. Toi -- were sweet and above the Lao average in efficiency. Highly recommended place, if you can bear the freight.

We were extremely happy with our stay here at Inthira and came back to spend out last 2 nights before leaving Laos. The staff very warm and helpful and offered not just great servos but a wide range of travel option around the local area. The room was spotless and fitted with all the mod cons and comforts of home. The restaurant with its delicious both local and western styled menu is where we spent most evening relaxing and enjoying good food and wine. Highly recommend this hotel is you are staying in Champasak, staff, food and accommodation was top notch.

Room Tip: The duplex are worth the extra money if you have it or if the rooms are available otherwise opt for the bungalow stayed in both and both are large spacious and offer luxury and privacy

We thought he Inthira was a great hotel. Champasak is a very quiet small village and there are not many other places around. The hotel looks very small and not much from the outside (almost like a house), but the restaurant is great and serves good food and drinks and the staff that work there are charming.

We booked a duplex room which sits over two floors and is big. Our room had a huge shower room, big comfy bed and nice furnishings, although I must confess we didn't use the downstairs section very much.

The best bit about the hotel is that you can hire a bike (or get a tuk tuk if you prefer) down 5km to Wat Phou and that is definately worth a visit. We loved doing the bike ride (the bikes were cheap to hire - can't remember but about £1) - it was hot, but so nice to stop where we wanted and to feel free of any vehicles. Once at the ruins you can leave your bike and walk round and have a good look.

Room Tip: We loved the duplex rooms and the huge bed

The Manager, Mr Toi, is extremely helpful! Helped us with bike rentals, boat tickets, ran our luggage to the jetty, made everybody feel important! The efficient and friendly staff served great food. The hotel is situaded in the middle of the (only) road in the town and within easy reach to the Wat Phu temple complex.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing the road, the traffic is not disturbing!
