We enjoyed our stay in HCM City largely due to our excellent concierge who arranged a motor bike tour, gave restaurant and other recommendations, and arranged airport transport. The hotel is clean and comfortable and well located in the backpackers' district.

Incredibly friendly staff, received a free upgrade on room as ours was not ready yet and they were able to organise all our transport for us. Location on a quite side street in the backpacker district. Would recommend.

We stayed there for 4 nights. Clean rooms and helpful staff. The rooms have the necessary but some of them have a nice balcony! Try to get one of these rooms. The location is in the middle of backpacker district, but in a smaller street from the loud buzz. We thought it was nice that it was quiet when we... More

The staff were helpful and accommodating, especially Thuy. They go all out just to make sure you get what you need and ask for. The location of Blue River is right in District 1, the center of the city, just blocks away from Ben Thanh Market. It's in Pham Ngu Lao, the backpackers area, with bus terminals, money changers and... More

This was a good hotel for the price. It was a bit tricky to find as it was down an alley way. I was warmly welcomed by the lovely Thuy. As I was on my own it was always nice to see a friendly face. Wonderful staff, cannot say enough positive thing. I was even warned that my bag wasn't... More

Toi and Hie were so friendly and helpful. They provided great service and friendly advice on tours, local restaurants and attractions. The only drawback were the flights of stairs you need to climb to reach your room. I'd definitely go back if ever I'm in Ho Chi Minh City again.

I made the mistake of booking this hotel for my family. Did not realize it was this bad. Couple having super loud sex at night, hotel having no lifts, non existent wifi, no bath gels or shampoo, no water boiler, no hair Dryer and sub standard breakfast dulled my 2 nights stay there. Only consolation is the friendly staffs there.... More

We arrived late and athough we had booked the room the only one left was on the 4th floor. The staff offered to bring the suitcases upstairs which was a help. Thuy (twee) offered us a room on second floor for the next day which offer we only took up after 3 days. The phone did not work but otherwise... More

Blue River Hotel is a hidden-gem tucked in the quiet street of Pham Ngu Lao. The room assigned to us was very neat and spacious. And we were provided with a decent breakfast. In addition, we also booked our airport-hotel transfer and HCM-Cu Chi Tunnels Day Tour through Blue River Hotel. All booking enquiries and tour reservations were conveniently transacted... More
