Where to stay in Udomxai

Udomxai

Udomxai has budget guesthouses, a smattering of upmarket options and plenty of hotels catering to Chinese clientele. All will have WiFi and are located either on or just off the main road, which is very noisy. If a light sleeper, try for a room at the back or bring earplugs.

We had a good feeling upon walking into Oudomphet Guesthouse—and that’s uncommon when it comes to Udomxai accommodation. Guests are greeted with a neat row of potted plants, family photos on the wall, a drinking water dispenser with both cold and hot water, as well as free tea/coffee and a fridge with beer for sale. It’s all very tidy and that tidiness extends to the simple guesthouse... Read our full review of Oudomphet Guesthouse.

Charming Lao Hotel
Midrange - US$20 to 50
Road to Phongsali, Udomxai
T: (081) 212 8813

Charming Lao Hotel has lost some of its lustre but in a town where tourism has stagnated, the hotel remains the best in town. The hotel is located where the main road Route 13 intersects with 2E, the road to Phongsali. It is across from the gated Kaysone Phomvihane Monument park, a short walk up the hill from the market, Tourism Information Centre and the river. In a city lacking charms, the...

Litthavixay Guesthouse

Route 13, middle of town on main road, Udomxai
T: (081) 212 175

For years Litthavixay Guesthouse was the reigning top pick for budget guesthouse in Udomxai and it is where we would always throw down our pack when we rolled into town, but on our last visit, everything was looking a bit too tired and worn out. First, the positives. The location doesn’t get more convenient than this. It is smack dab in the middle of the main street, equidistant to the... Read our full review of Litthavixay Guesthouse.

Namkat Yorlapa is a resort anchoring a new nature tourism destination centred on the Nam Kat waterfall. Opened in early 2016, the resort is located 17 km northeast of Udomxai city centre. A freshly cut and paved road rolls through the countryside, leading to the newly created outdoor park like a red carpet. ###16956 Udomxai lacks sights and accommodation to entice visitors to linger, and...

T: (081) 312 170

Villa Keoseumsack hovers somewhere between a basic guesthouse and a midrange hotel, and for those not interested in the quirks and foibles that come along with staying in cheap accommodation, this place features a few more creature comforts. Everything about the room is tidy and well-appointed, with wooden furnishings like desk/vanity that feel like they belong in the space. The quality of... Read our full review of Villa Keoseumsack.

Indara Guesthouse (also spelled Indala on the sign) is a recently built four-storey modern guesthouse that offers clean, simple, straightforward rooms zapped of any character. It does however feel newer than its neighbour Xayxana Hotel, and here air-con is standard. As of 2018, walls are clean, freshly painted and unblemished. Rooms have three-panel windows allowing for outside air and... Read our full review of Indara Guesthouse.
