So Good I Stayed Twice
Affordable Luxury, Amazing Views, Its a Palace
This was my second stay at the Palace. Originally I only planned on the one night but I found it hard to leave and booked two more. Amazing views over the Mekhong River. Oh and it is an actual Palace. Amazing value for money.

It's literally a Palace
Mekong RIver Views, Immaculate Rooms, Convenient Location
For the price the Champasak Palace is probably the best deal I've ever had in Asia. For a start is an actual palace. The views over the surrounding hills and rivers are unmatched in Pakse and the prices are not much more than backpacker prices. Amazing.

It is a palace, but not luxurious
architecture, history, affordable
This is certainly not a fancy affair, though it photographs well. The rooms have an aging/re-purposed feel. There was a buffet breakfast, but nothing exciting in the buffet. It was a novelty to stay in a palace, and the price was good, so I think it was worth it, but as a hotel experience it was not all that nice.

Cheap and convenient for a one night stay
The faded glory of the palace, the cost, the history
We enjoyed staying at Champasak Palace - if you're in Pakse for a night and looking for a cheap and interesting place to stay then I would recommend staying here. The palace is run down, and the rooms are fairly basic, but it's worth it to be able to sit on the grand old marble balconies looking over the river - it must have once been a very impressive palace. It's slightly up the hill from town, but this was no issue for us and just means that the views are amazing

Excellent value
Clean, compfy, friendly
This hotel is worth staying in for the Price and locality. It is quiet, overlooking the river and a temple. Close to shops and restaurants.

a comfortable hotel but very dated. In need of TLC
The views, not nuch else
In its day the Champasak Palace must have been quite a splendid hotel, but sadly time and what appears to be a lack of reinvestment in the building makes it a sad reflection of its former being. It has a good location overlooking the city, mountains and a tributary to the Mekong River depending on the room location. I had a river view. Each floor has colonnades around so consequently the rooms are set back a little and consequently slightly darker inside. The reception was a little better than luke warm. The room was dated with carpets (I prefer tiles, much cleaner). The bed was comfortable. The only WiFi reception is in the lobby. No English language TV, mainly Thai, despite the in room information sheet stating that BBC and CNN were available. An electricity blackout left the room in total darkness, no back up generator, and the outside window covers had to be jammed open. The hotel needs to do a lot on both the infrastructure and staff training.
