Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Accommodation in Pakbeng is generally of a basic standard, with some cheapies leaving much to be desired. Most places line the main road through town and the road that splits left at the pier and follows the river. River views don't really mean much as there's a good chance your boat won't arrive until sunset.
