The room was clean, simple and quiet which was all we needed. Breakfast was cooked to order and you could choose eggs done in various... More

This hotel was nothing special, it's in a fairly good location and the staff are great! Our room had small marks on the bed sheets when we arrived and the bathroom after a shower was flooded! To be honest thou was what you expect for a budget hotel!

Really great location in the middle of the tourist area and the alley where the hotel is situated is really charming. The staff was extremely helpful and caring: they drew our attention to every possible dangers and scams in Saigon, arranged great tours for us around the city and it was always a good choice to count on their advices.

Blue River Hotel is located in a quiet side alley near Bui Vien Street, the famous backpacker hotspot in Ho Chi Minh City. The rooms where nice, for HCMC still quiet and the staff was really nice and helpful.

Surprisingly quiet spot off busy street in Saigon. Most of the staff spoke reasonable English and were all very sweet and helpful. The breakfast was great. The room was very comfortable but there was no view as window was facing a blank wall. Overall very good value for money booked on agoda for around $30AUS.

The hotel is situated in a back alley on Pham Ngu Lao Street, the main road of the backpackers area. This did ensure that the rooms were quiet. There are 3 different hotels owned by the same company along the same stretch of alley. We were upgraded to the newest hotel and given the same rates. The biggest problem is... More

The receptionist couldn't find my reservation. But, she was very friendly. When I arrived, there was no one in the hotel manning the front desk. Someone had to be called from a sister property across the alley. The rooms are awful compared to the photos. I stayed in a 'deluxe' and it was very run down and the bathroom was... More

This place was clean enough and staff helpful. It was also from our experience quiet as it is in an alley way. It's suitable for backpackers or anyone on tight budget but our room was drab and not at all cosy. A hotchpotch of old furniture in a run down area.
