One of the better local hotels
The hallways are a bit grim and there’s no English spoken but the rooms are respectable and more effort has been put into them than some of the dismal hotels we saw in the centre at the market.
The more expensive rooms at My Le C2 get sunlight from a large window and a balcony. These rooms also come with air-con, fan, flatscreen TV, a minifridge and a few bits of furniture. The wetroom bathroom is small but has hot water. The cheapest rooms are 50,000 dong less but are tiny, windowless and dim. Like most budget hotels we saw in Buon Ma Thuot, no top sheet is provided but you can certainly do worse for the same price in this town. It’s still only a short walk to the night market.
