I commend Blue River Hotel for its fantastic service from start to end. Communication between me and the hotel is very clear, which ensured a smooth, hassle-free stay in their hotel. Availed their pickup service since the flight from Hanoi was at night (and it was unfortunately delayed) and did not have a hard time finding our driver in the... More

A fantastic place to stay. The staff were extremely helpful and couldn't do enough to help us with all of our needs. They even arranged for us to go with a tour group to our next destination at a very low price, which proved to be an amazing day!

Thuy and all the staff are amazing. I called up at the last minute and they fitted me in, feels like coming home. They go above and beyond to asssist you. I got in a fake taxi and called Thuy from the taxi who spoke to the driver and sorted it out for me. Aircon is cold, beds are comfortable,... More

This hotel provides value for money, there are no frills of any sort. I stayed for 5 nights. Rooms are a decent size, and I think most rooms come with a window but do not expect a view of any sorts. The bathroom was clean, which is something that is important to me. However, the shower was pretty disappointing since... More
