This place is tucked away on a tiny street right in the middle of the backpacker's district, which was perfect for us. The room was a bit small (but they did offer us a bigger one) and the window looked out on a wall, but it was really clean and modern. There are real beds with western-style mattresses, very nice!...

We stayed for 3 nights in November and requested a room with not many stairs as we had stayed 2 years earlier and knew that all rooms were up some stairs. As I had fallen out of a bus on the way to HCMC and sprained my ankle I was really worried as I thought I don't think I will... More

Nice and quiet hotel in the heart of tourist district. Walking distance to Ben Thanh market. Room is ok, clean with 2 square meter big balcony :) There was free wifi in all rooms. But mind the stairs. Many of them and very narrow, so it is not very convenient if you arrive with huge suitcase. We had backpacks and... More

We stayed in the Blue River Hotel at the beginning of our trip and also at the end because the people where just so friendly and helpful! The rooms are big and clean. The area the hotel is located is made for backpackers- so its very touristic and noisy. Maybe there are nicer areas in Ho Chi Minh City but... More

The staff went out of their way to ensure I enjoyed my stay. Great value for money, good air con and wifi plus cable tv. Yummy breakfast and close to everything. Very clean and secure. All the staff spoke excellent English and gave me lots of valuable tips about what to see and where to go.
