My husband and I stayed three nights with Blue River Hotel/Phan Lan. We realized that Blue River also works with Phan Lan, next door, for rooms. We were comfortable, and cool with the AC. Amber helped us with our tours/taxi/flights. Everyone was very hospitable and spoke English very well. They even allowed us to temporarily store our luggage there before...

We arrived late night at the Ho-Chi-Minh-City Airport and the available pick-up worked out perfectly. The hotel is located close to the major attractions and many food places are nearby. Our room faced the street and had a window which is definitely recommended. Air con worked just fine. The room was simple but fine, the furniture a little outdated but...

'Twas Friday night. There were five of us who checked into the hotel, welcomed by a very friendly and accommodating receptionist, Harry. We were offered refreshing cold drinks that quenched our thirst. We just didn't understand why he had to keep our passports when we already offered to give the full payment for the stay. He finally returned our passport...

We had a one night stay here last night and it served all purposes for this. Clean bedroom and bathroom and we were happy with the service. The lovely lady at reception upgraded us for free.

We got the room with a very modern Interieur. Our stay was pleasant, the breakfast is okay but not stunning. Very helpful statt. We booked a Mekong Tour which was possible in a very short time. We recommend the Hotel, its location is in a quiet Street but near to the City center and night market.
