We have been to better hotels in Saigon with better amenities and lower price. The room we got had a dead cockroach lying on the floor. We stayed only for one night so nothing really mattered. Check in and check out was fast and we were allowed to leave our luggages after.

While this hotel would probably be acceptable, until they can control their large roach infestation problem, it is completely uninhabitable as a hotel to me and I have lived in roach prone areas of the tropics so I'm no prima donna. Upon being shown into my room last night by the very kind owner(?) and his wife there was a... More

Very convenient, located within backpacker's area. The hotel is near the bus drop off point. Staffs were very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and neat. We were booked on the 3rd floor, unfortunately there is no elevator. But overall, comfortable location and excellent service!

Our second time to Saigon and we decided to stay at the backpackers end of town. This was a great little hotel tucked down a side street. Was a great price and in a great location. The best part was Thuoy the Manager/Concierge/Travel agent. She helped us with info, planning and tickets, a hidden asset to the hotel

We booked a room for one night but ended up staying for three. Very nice and helpful staff, clean rooms and free breakfast. The hotel had a very good location. The only downside was that the wifi did not work most of the times, but there are worse things in life :)

My husband and I just finished our stay at Blue river. We had a bad experience staying here. In our first room the WiFi did not work, and the ac would not cool below 30°C. When we asked to change rooms the owner tried to brush us off by saying they will look at it later, but we eventually were... More

This place was quite good. Location is excellent, but can be tricky to find as its down an alleyway. Loads of bars and food are within 10 minute walk in any direction really. Rooms are basic but comfortable.

This place is ok Pros: location, tv (loads of English channels) aircon breakfast. Cons: not that clean, staff a bit rude sometimes. Rooster woke us up every day at 5am. I wouldn't say this has a big enough window to advertise room with window. I think you could find nicer places for same amount of $
