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

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
