At the start of a six month trip overseas in November 2014, I was determined to make The Blue River my first stop. I was travelling with a friend, who had also stayed here before, but never at the same time as me. As usual there was our taxi waiting at the airport to drop us at the mouth of... More

We came quite late in the evening to this hotel due to our flight times. They put us in a room that although it was clean and obviously new should have been for staff only as it was right beside reception with full length glass door and window across the front into the lobby that only had a curtain on...

It's a good place for its price. Don't expect to find top class amenities but it pretty much has all the essentials - towels, soap, shampoo. If you will be needing wifi, I suggest you request for the room where their wifi signal is strong. The attendants were all nice too, they can help you with arranging your transfers to... More

To say this is a one star hotel it was perfect! The rooms were nice, clean, bright and big and the breakfast was delicious. It is in a great location. The lady at reception was extremely helpful with booking our onward travel! Thank you for a great stay

Hi We stayed 3 nights at this place. Although it's centrally located, it's in an ally and it was a bit difficult to drag our bags from the main road to the hotel. Staff was helpful but communication was a big problem. Overall we found it very average. For the price we paid I'm sure there are better options available.

The room does not look like the picture. The superior room was really old and the AC make a noise all night ling.. The girl at the reception was really nice but the two guys not. Breakfast and location OK.

Lovely small hotel in the middle of a small alley in the backpacking district, but do not let that worry you as the hotel was very quiet. Extremely convenient location, near shops, bars and restaurants as well as taxi ranks, the hotel was very clean and the rooms kept well stocked with toiletries and the minibar. The staff, led by...

My friend and I spent two nights in this hotel. It was very reasonably priced, clean and in a good location to walk to local attractions. Bedroom was clean and the bedding was fresh, bathroom was simple but everything we needed. Breakfast was included in the price and was delicious. The hotel staff are incredibly polite and the main staff... More

The staff were young people who were so dynamic in pleasing and attending to our needs, specially since me and my husband are seniors already. The hotel was clean. The staff made sure we had toiletries available always, since there were three of us in our room. For the price we paid, we could still ask for some more helping... More

Great place to stay. Clean spacious rooms. We stayed in newer part of hotel there is a difference. Staff very friendly and knowledgable. Planned great day trips and even organized our activities in Hanoi. As other commented there is a morning roster but an addition to the experience. Would recommend to everyone.
