In the hustle and bustle of Ho Chi Minh, Blue River was a nice calm little oasis. Very clean and well maintained, the staff were friendly and the hotel itself reasonably cheap with breakfast included. Beds were nice and soft, perfect back packers stop off point. My only qualm was with the pest problem we had due to the rainy... More

Very good place to stay. Friendly staff with nice but small rooms; no lift. Very near from shops, markets, supermarkets, massages, agencies to book excursions, restaurants and most interesting places to visit. Really good for price, will recommend 100%

• Location - Blue River is located in Pham Ngu Lao or the “Backpacker” Street. It is in an alley, like a compound type with a lot of hotels. Your best landmark is the Burger King. If you’re facing Burger King it is on your right. The alley will clearly state 283 Pham Ngu Lao on the sign above the... More

Very nice hotel with friendly & helpful staff, the room very clean. They also have welcome drink and store our luggage during my trip to Mekong River and free shower when we come back. We really sure come back this hotel next time.

The hotel is in a great location close to Ben market and the bus station. The staff was overall helpful and friendly and she spoke english. Not well but understandable. Our room was 58 dollars with two double beds, fast wifi, ac, and etc. And not one sighting of a bug. The free breakfast in the morning was good and... More

The nice staff didn't compensate for the poor service! We got there and we were given a room in another hotel because the one we had booked with blue river was not free in the end. The place we stayed in opposite blue river was really bad. Room was tiny and really basic. Not worth the 21$ blue river made... More

The location is convenient to access to most of the attractive places such as Ben Thanh Market etc; also, it is easy to get food and beverage here. However, it may be a little challenging to find the building because it is located along a inner lane parallel to Pham Ngu Lao street. The staffs are kind and helpful. The... More

As I traveled through Asia this was just one of the "alright" hotels. We arrived in the afternoon and checked in without any problems. The room was fairly barebones with a bathroom area that basically wasn't separated from the rest of the room. The breakfast is pretty minimalist but well made. A selection of pancakes, bacon and other breakfasty things.... More
