*** Stayed April 2013 not 2014. You have to have the complete address to show your cab driver to get to this hotel. Located in an alleyway at the back of the main street, where the alleyway's one end is the entrance and the other one a dead-end you have to pass between 2 buildings if your taxi driver dropped...

A little bit of a tricky place to find as it's in a small alley way (the easiest way is if you're coming from the city center along the park, it's just after Burger King!). There are no elevator, the breakfast is pretty basic and the bathroom smelt but the staff is friendly. Note : unless you have US cash,... More

Located at a strategic location where is convenient to reach nearby famous places and lively night life places. Staff is very friendly and helpful. It's just that need climb up to 4th floor by staircase.

I have been a regular visitor to Vietnam over a number of years. For the last 8 years I have always chosen this hotel when in Ho Chi Minh City, and recommended it to others. The location is central & convenient, the rooms always clean, and prices very reasonable. The real bonus is the staff who are always friendly, polite,... More

It was a bit hard to find in a first place. But otherwise it was OK. Nothing really to complain about. For that price range it's a good deal. Near to the main street, where you can find many bars & restaurants.

This is also very quiet at night despite the busy surroundings. Simply good value for money. Lot's of good street food everywhere. Staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast (included) is a little simple but it works.

This was the best place I have stayed in Asia. For the price , it is extremely great value for money and I wouldn't stay anywhere else given the choice. We were blown away with how clean and comfortable the room was, the staff were excellent and communicated well in English, they organized a taxi to the airport at the... More

Three different Blue Rivers all near each other. We entered the wrong one but were taken across the alley to ours. The room was clean. The beds were a bit hard, but you get used to that travelling in SE Asia. The bathroom has opaque sliding glass doors, which could be a bit embarrassing depending on the travel partner. For... More

The best thing of Blue River is it's situation. Just near Bui Vien street (a street of tourists and backcampers with lots of restaurants and shops). And about 10-15 mins from most of showplaces. Service is also great. Minus: there's no elevator so be ready to take your bags up (anyway the staff is always there to help you). The... More
