Gia Dinh Guest House (Family Inn)
If you are really counting your dong and want a central location, Gia Dinh is the best of the bunch (though Hung Vuong and Ngoc Mai Hotel make a good case for walking a few extra blocks).
Gia Dinh has been around for a while and it shows as the rooms are a little worn around the edges. They are quite spacious though, and rooms have tile floor, a beside table, windows, box TV, fan, air-con, a clothes rack and a bathroom with hot shower. Like most of the budget digs in Buon Ma Thuot, no top sheet is provided. The best part is you are only a couple of blocks east of the central roundabout and the eats. For the budget conscious backpacker, we’d pick Gia Dinh over the cluster of dismal hotels nearby on Ly Thuong Kiet Street -- Thanh Phat and Thanh Cong Hotel attract far more backpackers than they should.
