Indochine Hotel holds a prime position on Kon Tum’s underwhelming riverfront – it is one of the few places in town to provide views of the Dakbla River – and though the modern building holds landmark status, the hotel itself is forgettable and charmless.
The lobby is cavernous, empty and ugly. If you can look past the lobby’s tacky sofas, the rooms are actually fair and well-equipped with bland generic city hotel style. You can look forward to cream walls, big windows with peach curtains and solid wood furniture including a good desk/vanity, luggage rack and bedside table. You also enjoy air-con, WiFi, box TV, desk lamp, kettle and hair dryer. Bathrooms are well lit and boring, with a bathtub/shower combo and sink with countertop. It certainly isn’t the best value but it is Kon Tum’s most upscale offering.
