We really like it and it’s often where we choose to throw down our pack when we roll into Luang Nam Tha. This is your typical tour group hotel – large, impersonal, boring – but you’d be surprised to learn that it’s the same price or even cheaper than some of the guesthouses in town. The rooms are large, well lit and have big windows that open so you can breathe in natural light and fresh air. The beds are comfortable, linens are a little worn but clean and there’s even an extra warm comforter in the wardrobe which you’ll be thankful for in cold season when nights in Luang Nam Tha are downright frigid. The fan rooms have old TVs but you can’t get English channels here anyway. The bathrooms have seen better days but you get a counter, mirror and hot shower with shower curtain. There’s a bedside table, desk/vanity, sitting area and our favourite perk, a drinking water dispenser that can deliver normal or piping hot water for the free tea and coffee provided. This is one of the few places in town that tries to look like a real hotel with a proper lobby, lift, guest computers and secured parking – but if you expect anything above a budget hotel standard and service you’ll be disappointed. The halls echo and are very noisy when people check in and out, the WiFi strength depends on where your room is in relation to the router and housekeeping can be forgetful. It may not have that backpacker vibe but if you arrive into town late without a booking, there’s a good chance they will still have a room available. And good news for solo travellers, Dok Champa Hotel has a few smaller, simpler rooms for singles at 60,000 kip, making it the cheapest option in town.
