Arrived from Malaysia and taxi had a little trouble finding it, but primarily because the Blue River is situated on a quiet side street just off the Main Street.
Check in was effortless and very pleasant, that is until our son realised he had left a small bag with passport in the taxi which was obviously long gone. Panic, until the hotel manager phoned the taxi firm and after the longest 30 minutes ever the taxi returned with bag & passport intact.
Blue River is a small hotel on three floors and we had a family room with double & single bed, and bathroom/shower. Whereas compact, it was clean and tidy with soap, shampoo etc. WiFi included. It's location is really good, in District 1 and close to bars, restaurants and shops. Walking around Saigon isn't really practical due to size and traffic - 10m population with 5m motorcycles!
Breakfast was included in the price - juice, omelette, fresh fruit & tea/coffee.
Overall very enjoyable stay at tremendous value in a fabulous city - thanks Blue River staff for your welcome and assistance.
