Best in town
Charming Lao Hotel is located just off the main road on the road to Phongsali (across from the gated Kaisone Monument park), a short walk up the hill from the western edge of the river.
Maybe the owners of this place have read one too many guidebooks and that's why they named this place Charming Lao Hotel but they somehow got the description spot on. It really is a charming Lao hotel and it's head and shoulders above anything else in Udomxai, with the luxurious carpeted rooms featuring flatscreen TVs, fridges, safes, free in-room WiFi, great beds, fantastic linen and bathrooms that are both modern and spotless. In a town gone tacky, it’s all surprisingly tasteful, though there is a price tag to match. The attached Sinouk Cafe is a winner and where the simple complimentary breakfast is served. This is a terrific hotel compared to all the other Udomxai options.
