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 The room was simple but fine, the furniture a little outdated but...

From Ben Than Market, it is on the left side just a few steps from Burger King you will find an entry to an alley with a signboard with...

'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. The breakfast you can order of a menu instead of buffet which I appreciated. Worth the cheap price and recommend this place. It is...

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.

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...
