Champasak is little more than a long main road with a roundabout at the centre of it. All the accommodation is within walking distance of the roundabout. Everything here is budget accommodation, with the exception of Inthira.
The most luxurious hotel in town is without a doubt Inthira. The rooms here are modern and artistically designed so that each part of each room is filled with something of interest such as colourful blinds, quirky chairs or traditional linens. The duplex rooms are stunning two-storey apartments with wooden floors, rain shower and massive bath tubs. They even have flat screen TVs and safes, rare... Read our full review of Inthira Hotel.
If you're looking for some of the cheapest rooms in town, head straight to Khamphouy.

Staff are friendly here and everyone was extremely laidback on our last... Read our full review of Thavisab Hotel.
The most southerly of the guesthouses worth staying in, Vongpaseud is a quaint guesthouse at the back of a typically ramshackle shopfront and family home. The cheapest rooms are of wooden construction and come with fan, hot water and Western toilet. They're charming and a steal at this price. The pricier air-con rooms shun the charm and are made of concrete. Despite the air-con, we think they're... Read our full review of Vong Pasued Guest House.
