Rooms have high ceilings and come with WiFi, air-con and fridge. The cheaper rooms are just okay, with oddly low beds, very firm mattress and dim lighting. Splurge a little and you’ll get rooms with tall frosted windows, a desk with a computer, flat screen TV, fridge, old armchairs, a softer mattress, bedside table and bedside electrical outlet. Bathrooms are spacious and showers come with a curtain, but you need the shower to run for a few minutes before hot water flows. Overall, everything is tidy.

One of the biggest problems we experienced here was cigarette smoke. Smoking is allowed in the room (there’s an ashtray provided to encourage you) and the smell of secondhand smoke just never went away. In fact, it was so powerful that at the end of our stay, the cigarette smell had permeated our backpack and all our clothes inside. We suspect the smoke was coming from a neighbouring room with a shared air vent. This is a problem you can experience at any local hotel in Vietnam – not just Thinh Vuong – but if this is an issue for you, we suggest you poke your head into a few rooms for a sniff before you decide.

The proprietor speaks English and she’s helpful and eager to please. As is common in Kon Tum, beds didn’t come with a top sheet but as soon as we mentioned it, she understood and happily added one. Konklor Hotel is cleaner and brighter and My Hotel is newer but Thinh Vuong remains a popular choice with backpackers and motorcyclists.
