Service can make or break a place. In this case it made our experience a top one. Ladies in the reception, you guys are awesome! Rooms where clean and basic (which you expect for the price you are paying). Our room was newly refurbished and we very much enjoyed it. Also, location was superb with walking distance to Ben Thanh... More

Just like a nice cup of conveniently packet coffee, I would say that Blue River Hotel is a 3-in-1...because it has three facilities for you to choose from on the same street of Pham Ngu Lao! Each with its own unique theme, and I had the honour of try all three different facilities and love each and everyone of them.... More

My husband and I stayed here for just 2 nights. The location was great - really convenient to lots of restaurants, etc. The ladies running the hotel were so friendly and helpful. They greeted us with a complimentary drink on arrival, recommended places to eat and visit, and organised a car back to the airport (at a very reasonable price).... More

Very friendly staff, good clean rooms at a reasonable price and very conveniently located in Ho Chi minh, near bars, restaurants and shops. We stayed for a couple of days in May 2014 and really enjoyed it. Recommended.

Loved our stay here! The location was great - tucked in a cute alley which is surrounded by many other small hotels. Not scary at all. Walking distance to everything - war museum, markets, restaurants. The ladies that run this place from the reception to cleaners and waitresses are just so lovely. They made us feel right at home. Were... More

This place is tucked away on a tiny street right in the middle of the backpacker's district, which was perfect for us. The room was a bit small (but they did offer us a bigger one) and the window looked out on a wall, but it was really clean and modern. There are real beds with western-style mattresses, very nice!...

We stayed for 3 nights in November and requested a room with not many stairs as we had stayed 2 years earlier and knew that all rooms were up some stairs. As I had fallen out of a bus on the way to HCMC and sprained my ankle I was really worried as I thought I don't think I will... More
