I try to forget this as soon as possible. Try some other hotel when in Pak Beng. Dirty sheets, bugs, and malfunction AC unit. Breakfast is mediocre. Wifi only in reception area. We had been warned that this place is not safe and that we had to watch our belongings. When there is no safe deposit box it is complicated. I wonder why they have not advised us to leave as much as possible stuff on the slow boat which we were going to board again the next morning. Steep walk on the bank from the Mekong to get to te shuttle bus.

We stayed one night at the Phetsokxai Hotel during our slow boat ride down the Mekong River. The hotel is on a hill, so it's a bit of a hike from the river to the hotel. We were in room 105. This smallish room had a double bed, TV, A/C, a fan, WiFi, and US style plugs. But it did not have a safe, and we had no hot water in the room. We had been told to leave our bags on the boat and only bring what was necessary for one night. That was good advice. The custom was to leave your shoes outside the room. We had dinner at this hotel, and it was good. The breakfast had a few choices. It was a steep walk back down to the boats the next day.

This place was really disgusting. I didn't make a fuss because I know the standards are really low here, and we arrived late and were leaving in the morning, but it was really gross. My sheets had tons of stains on them and the comforter was actually crusty. I don't think the linen was washed at all. I also had a ton of bugs in my room. I felt really gross just stepping foot in this room. It was dark and dingy and I felt unsafe. No safe or something. I was happy to leave

Everyone knows Pakbeng is the equivalent of a truck stop for the river boats and this hotel is equivalent to a Formula 1 or City Lodge. Basic, dark and cramped, but it had a bed, a wet room (not a shower as such, you get the WHOLE room and everything in it wet, no matter how careful you are, including the toilet paper), and a fan to keep you cool. Don't take your main luggage up there: there's no space in the room and the walk up is quite steep. Just take what you need for the night and your valuables and leave everything else on your boat. The wifi worked well, but there's no safe deposit box or toiletries or hair drier. But it's one night, you'll survive. Breakfast is no feast, but it feeds you well enough. There's a super bakery on the left just down the main road in town so eat there if you have time. If you're lucky you'll see elephants on the opposite bank from the veranda having a bath.

A quiet hotel that although is old, is clean and comfortable.. The bathroom is very small. The rooms have lovely woodwork and the cooling was good for the time of year I was there. Staff are lovely. It’s a short walk to restaurants.
