Dokchampa HotelAddress: Luang Namtha center, Nigth Market, Luang Namtha Rd, Luang Namtha Town view map
Dokchampa Hotel is a large, prominent hotel in the centre of Luang Namtha and offers old but well maintained pleasant, clean and comfortable rooms with good facilities and a large wooden lobby where tourist information is available.
One of the largest properties in town and certainly on the main street, Dokchampa Hotel can cater for individuals and groups with a selection of quaint single rooms, and bright and spacious double and twin rooms, all with private hot water ensuites, cable TV, air conditioning and fan.
Located opposite the Minority Restaurant and Namth River Experience, Dokchampa Hotel boasts a great central location providing easy foot access of the night market and surrounding areas as well as being next door to a large convenience store.
The friendly manager, Mr Noi, is originally from Vientiane and came far away to Dokchampa Hotel in Luang Namtha to develop his skills in the business of tourism and English language, as well as to help out his stepfather who owns the property. Very ambitious, Noi is now also studying computers and IT whilst working at Dokchampa.
The director of Dokchampa studied tourism in Vientiane many years ago but then went on to work for the Government for 15 years until he resigned to follow his ambitions of opening up his own business starting with the large shop next door to Dokchampa and then in 2008 to build the hotel.

The newer part of town (where the hotel is) does not of itself have a lot of character - apart from the nearby night markets.
