Quaint spot in the backpacking district of Saigon. Clean and quiet rooms, breakfast included, and convenient location. The staff, especially Thuy and Hai, were friendly, spoke excellent English, and extremely knowledgeable and helpful. They recommended and booked several tours for my travel companions. Felt safe immediately. The price couldn't be beat.

First, all the staff are really friendly, helpful and accommodating, Nguyen Le is by nature very concern of all their guests and made sure that each one is having a worry free, pleasant and hassle free visit in Vietnam. She warned us clearly of what to be aware of in the city so we can be safe and everyday, she... More

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.

Located in a quiet lane way close to good restaurants & bars, clean rooms, lovely friendly staff who are very helpful with travel info and getting around HCMC. Breakfast was substantial but adequate, highly 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.
