Everything about This hotel is good except the breakfast. The originsl palace built for the King in 1970 was convered to s boutique hotel in 2004 and is dhowing the signs of wera but great experience.
Try not to have the buffet breakfast as it is terrible Order an omelette for breakfast which is reasonable and coffee and bread is Ok. I paid an extra used 25 to get a very large suite. It is worth paying a bit extra to stay on the fourth floor. Only 60 Usd for a very large well decorated atmospheric room. Try 406 the balcony surrounds the room and is bigger than the very large room and adequate bathroom . This place is part of history and although the Pakse hotel and Grand may be more modern do not miss this experience. They staff try hard to please
Just be a little patient and don't expect too much . There are a few good restaurants within walking distance. Na Dao for French food Daolin for Lao cheap and cheerful and the Panorama on the top of the Pskse for Thai and international. Best atmosphere for restaurants however are the seafood restaurants lining the banks of the river
Not as good ad Thailand but not expensive
And some good Laos dishes. Try Lao sausage sping rolls and Steak Lao but set your expectations low and you may be pleasantly surprised. Pakse is a good place for a short break but make sure to arrive early at Chong Mek and take USD for your visa. I had to pay 1500 baht instead of USD
36 and you either pay or don't get in
The bus twice a day from Ubon at 300 baht is the best way to get to Pakse from Thailand It ihas air con old but safe but only runs morning and 3 30 pm.
