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

Good value, clean and comfortable rooms. Only 5 minutes walk to the beach and 5 minutes to good restaurants etc. Only complaint is that 2 items of my clothing went missing when they did our laundry and due to the language barrier I'm still unsure what happened to them!

Me and a friend stayed here for 5 nights and were extremely happy with our choice, the surrounding area isn't particularly nice or safe but do not be put off! The staff are the friendliest hotel staff I have ever encountered. When we chose Ho Chi Minh we knew that petty crime and theft was an issue in the area... More

When we turned up we were told we were being placed in one of their newer hotels just up the road which was fine. The room was simple and not quite as attractive as the photos of the main hotel. However it was a good size and really clean with a modern bathroom. Breakfast wasn't great but not the worst... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were pleasantly surprised by just how nice it was given the cheap price of $25/night for double ensuite! Our ground floor room was newly refurbished and comfortable. Handy location. Could leave our bags here when we went off on an overnight motorbike tour. Organised airpoirt pick up and drop off- very convenient and... More

I stayed in this hotel with my wife during Christmas holiday in 2013, the hotel provided airport pickup service at a relatively affordable cost (can't remember exactly how much, though it is a bit more than cost of taxi ride, but since it was our first trip to Ho Chi Minh City, I considered it worthwhile). The room was value... More

Friendly staff, rooms were spacious and clean. The aircon was turned off a few times and we had to call down to have it switched on. They turned it off in the night sometimes which made it very uncomfortable to sleep. We did laundry there which was twice the price of anywhere else in Vietnam. The breakfast was limited with...

It is located in the backpackers area, close to restaurants. Walking distance to Beer Street and Benh Than Market. They have nice beds, clean sheets and they change your towels every day. They offer free breakfast although it is usually - omelet, bread and coffee. Their version of pancake is crepe, kind of hard pancake. Cons: no exhaust fan inside... More
