Formerly Tida Hotel, this was previously our top choice for Sekong, and though its star has faded with age, it’s still a good choice for backpackers who want to stay on the river.

Photo of Hounephathay Hotel
The small rooms have life yet with brightly painted walls, solid wood floors, windows, a table, box TV, minifridge, air-con, WiFi and a mirror. The tiled bathrooms are slightly mildewed but there’s a hot shower and western toilet.

The best part of the hotel (aside from the towel art) is the restaurant overlooking the chocolate brown Sekong River and the landscape beyond blanketed in greenery.

To find Hounephathay Hotel, travel along the river road. It’s towards the western end of town, less than two blocks from Vangxang Savanah Hotel and the ramp/ferry across the river. The building runs along the road, you can’t miss it.
