We traveled to Pakse and stayed one night at LJ, left our luggage with them while doing a river cruise, and then stayed again at LJ for a few more nights. The hotel is new and very nice. It's outside of the city center, but they provide transport any time you want it (or arrange for it). They even booked one of their drivers for the afternoon so that we could go to Champasak for the day. The pool is lovely and a nice break from the heat. The rooms are not fancy but are clean and simply furnished. The staff could not be more polite and helpful. Breakfast was simple and tasty.
