Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Pakse and Southern Laos in general offers such a diverse range of accommodation and it’s a shame people don’t choose to experience this gem a little more often. I know “dormitory accommodation” appears to be a value for money for many, however consider choosing a very comfortable space, awesome hot powerful showers, great views and a relatively central location.. and crickey.. it’s an old ‘Palace’!! It is really very comfortable and with a satisfactory breakfast included, you can’t go wrong!! We loved our stay, shame it wasn’t a night or two longer to appreciate the facilities more.

If you’re looking for modern rooms and facilities this hotel may not be you (In fact you may be in the wrong country). A stay here is to take in a small bit of Lao history. The hotel is huge and when we stayed almost empty of guests. The rooms are enormous although a bit spartan. The whole place though does still have the feel of a palace even though the grandeur has faded. The dining room is a huge beautiful hall but the breakfast is basic and take your mosquito repellent! The manager was very helpful in arranging transport for day trips at good rates. Try taking the outside lift to the sixth floor and visit the round room at the very top.

The hotel though grand from the outside has not been maintained. Paint and plaster in the rooms is peeling. Wi-Fi is spotty at best. No restaurant in the evening.. grout in the bathroom time was falling out. Lamp at bedside did not work

the hotel looks grand from the outside. this is because the monarch used to live here some yrs ago. but when u enter the resort, the reception has only one person and rest looks like its not been dusted for a long time. the hotel looks like a large deserted property. there werent too many people and i think only akother guest. this can perhaps be attributed to the fact that sept is not season. rooms were decent and cleanliness was bare minimum. place lacks upkeep and maintainance. the air condition made an awful sound all night and had to be switched off. all in all, a very avg experience. go to a better place if u can.

It‘s an ok place to stay but not more. Rooms are clean and comfortable but you can find the same for a lower price easily. The breakfast was not very enjoyable and at check out we were charged for items that we were initially told were complimentary (also was not listed on the price list). The laundry service is a bit unfortunate as well since they charge you per item (1 shirt: 10k, 1 pair of socks: 5k, etc.). Would definitely stay at a different place next time.

The hotel was quite a sight and the food was good in a grand setting within the palace itself. My room was in a back annex and pleasant enough, although rather common compared to the grandeur of the main building. The patio between the two was uncovered, causing an issue in the rain, but it was otherwise a pleasant stay with good service. It is the closest hotel to the official center of town, and the main tourist services district was 5-15 minutes' walk away. The colonial core and the commercial district were within a 20 minute walk, and Wat Phou Salao across the Mekong River Bridge was about 45 minutes' walk.

We booked a VIP room here 3 months ago to celebrate our birthdays and we were so excited to spend the night here. But our stay here started with a unpleasant welcome, very cold, we had to prove our booking by showing confirmation emails but without internet connexion in Laos it's hard ! Then finally we can go to the suit room, very nice, big, everything looks clean, nice view on the city but… you will have to share the room with some cockroaches… ! In order to forget this terrible meeting we wanted to have a drink in the top bar so nicely presented on the website but… it was closed, and when we asked the receptionist there were no explanations ! Back in our room we wanted to use the wifi but… no wifi reception in the room ! And don’t bother to call the room service because they won't answer, the reason : the line isn't working. After a pretty good sleep in the big bed we had the worst breakfast in Laos : no smile from the staff, cold food, fake coffee and dry bread… I do not recommend you to stay here, you can find a better place in Pakse, with warm staff and good breakfast !

The rooms are clean, tidy and well appointed. beds comfortable. That's it, If you book on a discounted web site you are delegated to one of the peripheral rooms where wifi does not reach unless you move around trying to maintain connection. Television may or may not have good reception depending on which room you have ( and once you are moved to a room that has good reception the channels only cater in the local languages). Laundry is offered by payment per article, breakfast is set unless a large group permits for a buffet breakfast. staff are uninterested. currency exchange is not available, I stayed here as I wanted a change from cheaper accommodation that we had been sharing for some time but I felt better serviced by the 2 star hotels than by this establishment. it could be so much better

Was impressed by this hotel, slightly more luxurious than my normal backpackers. Had large room in the newer section, clean and comfortable. Breakfast in the main dining area, large selection. Quite a few tour groups. Was not impressed with reception staff at first as they continued their conversation as we were waiting to check in. Otherwise staff were fine.

It is a palace which has not been utilize by the King himself, and it has converted into a hotel as of today. The hotel itself is also a tourist attraction which not many tourist will visit. If you like a quite place to sleep, this could be good option apart from hotel along the streets. Is a 30 plus year old building, so do not expect it to be in tip top condition. Within the building, you can actually see some unique Laos architecture filled with dragons and royal features. Some furniture still preserved from its origins, but not many (the King didn't live in the palace itself, therefore there were not many luxury items) Behind the palace, there is a stairway downwards leading to a prayer area. is very quiet but nice place to take few nice pictures. The rooms are very standard and spacious, the only thing lack is the lighting, is a bit dark in certain areas. The inclusive breakfast is not too bad, you can taste some of the local flavor like kafir lime fried noodles. Coffee, Laos coffee, quite good not too strong.
