We had problems with crossing borders so my friends and I missed the first night of our stay in the hotel, but it was nice of them to still allow us to check-in for the second day (and they even stayed up the night before waiting for us). Enjoyed our stay even if it was only for a day, they... More

We loved staying at this hotel. It is our number 1 hotel during our 4 months travel in Vietnam. The best staff ever! Sincere and helpful, to the last detail, so competent and patient, yet easygoing and amiable. A true golden star in the jungle of hotels in Saigon! Rooms and location are also great. Couldn't recommend it enough.

The hotel is located in the backpacker area. The rooms are good, clean and air conditioned. The price is reasonable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed my stay here and recommend this hotel.

Stayed there for one night. Great staff! Rooms good as well. Staff can help with anything! Ask them for their personal favorites in Ho Chi Minh. Never disappoints. We were late for breakfast, but they still made us some food. Great location with walking distance to almost every sight in town. Quiet street as well!

We stayed at Blue River Hotel for 2 nights at the start of our trip to Vietnam. The room was basic, but provided everything as quoted. It was clean, the airconditioning worked well, the water was hot, the room safe worked, and it was in a top location. Overall, a good standard for the price point! The real selling point... More
