“Cannot be worse!!!”
Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

I wanted to have pleasant night after a long day traveling so I decided to spend more for a hotel. After all, 40$/night for a dirty room, unwell-functioning aircon, broken lamp, no point of having a bath tube inside because you can never have it full of warm water (if you are patient for 2hrs you can manage to make it haft full). I have no idea under which standards it is ranked 3stars hotel?!

The most disturbing thing was they tried to cheat on your money. There was a recent currency rate list on reception desk for USD, Euro, AUD etc. but they only accept payment in USD or VND. I wanted to pay in Euro because I didn't have enough VND, the receptionist checked on current rate on local bank and said it was 27.700dong=1euro, then she called her supervisor to double check and confirmed to me. When she was about to write the bill she called again and said the hotel always take 1euro for 25.000dong! What is the point of showing the currency rate on the table then??? I was too tired already for looking for other convert points at 9pm. She took 50euros from me, exchanged to and gave me VND, calculated the bill in USD with the most recent rate from the bank and asked me to pay either in USD (which is ridiculous, if I had I didn't pay in euros) or VND.

Would never come back to this place again!

After reading some reviews, I was not sure about staying here, but was pleasantly surprised. One review said it was like a Soviet era hotel; After staying in many Soviet era hotels before 1990, I can only say that in my opinion, this reviewers experience was a lot different than mine!
Great location, views across the river and friendly staff and a good room leads me to recommend this hotel. I have stayed in dozens of 3 star hotels around the world, that don't measure up to this one

Rooms & service are OK and the views on the river quite pleasant. However, try to get a room not to close to the bridge. The swimming-pool has been destroyed to make space for a new building under construction. Unfortunately, there are not many other decent accomodation options in Kontum. Expensive for what is offers. Breakfast hardly edible.

konTum has a great natural setting. the view of the river is wonderful. Everything goes down hill from that. The hotel is beat up, but not finished yet. The pool had about a foot of green slime on the bottom. the food was just edible. hard to belive this was the best of the litter. great guides
In the town. be sur to see the catholic orfanage. it will break your heart to see all these kids without a parent. Leave a donation. Every $ helps.

Comparing to Hoang Van or its brother Dakbla hotel, Indochine Kontum is the highest style of stay in this Vietnam North Central Highlands. Most rooms have riverview over the grandiose Dakbla river and mountain range surroundings. Nice room, clean and staff speak good English

Pros: Many coffee shops around the hotel, you can taste the best Robusta coffee here. From the dock in front of the hotel, you can take a tourist boat to go along Dakbla river to hilltribe villages.

Fantastic view out the front of the river and rolling hills. Spacious carpeted rooms that are a little worn. Comfy queen sized bed, mediocre linens, hot water but shower is hung very low and floods the bathroom so you have to use it as a hand held shower. Kettle, desk, excellent WIFI, but no safe. Night was quiet – noise from road starts early. Breakfast buffet okay – very little fruit, has egg station and Asian foods. Stayed as part of a tour.

The Indochine reminds me of staying in a Soviet hotel 40 years ago!
