We stayed at the Blue River hotel for 1 week. The location is in a very quiet alley (good because its very noisy from the traffic in the rest of HMC), there is a short walk to the city centre and the largest market in town. The room was very clean with AC and daily cleaning. Breakfast was also included in western style: bread and eggs. It was also possible to have a traditional breakfast such as noodles.
The staff was very helpful with booking trips and buses/flights, much more than we could ever have expected. Ha (manager) also gave us a tour of HMC which was a big plus.
We stayed in four different hotels in Vietnam (one was 3 stars) and this is the absolute best of them all. Recommended!
