“Small rooms with no windows but great location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2012 via mobile

This was our last stop on a month long trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. For the price, this hotel was adequate. We were startled to find that there was no window in our very small room. They claimed there was a window as there was a small glass opening to a light shaft. Breakfast was pretty good and staff were very friendly and helpful at the front desk. As we did not spend much time in ourroom and the location was very good we were okay with this property. If you book this hotel be sure to get a room with a window and then you should be quite happy with this choice.

Hi stayed at Blue Diamond with a couple of mates in late September 2012 for 4 nights. Some of the things that bothered my travelling companion, such as noisy neighbours and air con didn't affect me (I am used to lots of noise I guess.) But I didn't like the fact that I couldn't get wifi in the room as advertised, only in the lobby - but I have had that experience in many Asian hotels and it is just part of the travel experience.
The staff at Blue Diamond were lovely, very friendly, helpful - I was chuffed at having the door opened every time we went in or out, and the room service was spectaculary fast - and the food excellent (if too much.) Also had a "Foot" massage there which was excellent, even though my back and neck, legs and arms also got massaged. The young woman who massaged me was an expect and I would recommend this to anyone - $10US for 70 minutes.
The location of this hotel is so good, close to the markets as others have mentioned, and within walking distance to masses of shops,eateries,travel and tour companies + there are some surprisingly beautiful parks and gardens within a short walk. I was amazed at the number of parks in Saigon, and they are all well used with some very big trees making a nice break from the motor bike madness that rules the streets.
Would I stay at Blue Diamond again? Probably not, there are so many good hotels in Saigon that I would want to check out another of them, but that said, my stay was good and the beds for me, wonderfully comfortable! Oh, I also liked the fresh orchids in the foyer, a beautiful touch, very lavish.

Room Tip: If you don't like noise, don't stay here, if you like being in the centre of the action this...

When In Ho Chi Minh City stayed at the Blue Diamond hotel, The rooms where average, the staff friendly but not very good in English, The hotel had a mass booking of young people from Malaysia who where Muslim but they smoked and where very inconsiderate of the huge amounts of noise they made that interfered with other guess just as entitled to there quite as anyone, after 2 nights of continuous noise and wrong phone calls, I complained to management and told sorry sorry, but that was not really good enough. The rules for some and others are far different. Over all the stay was pleasant but would not recommend this hotel to friends or family as it was recommended to me.Breakfast not catered for for westerners and no hot water at any time day or night. no wifi as advertised in their brochure other than in the lobby which was very poor quality also. Aircon compressors right out side 2 and 3rd floor running all night Very poor in in quality and standard for the high price they charge, Disappointing.

Room Tip: I would not stay at the blue diamond as the price was very expensive for the quality and service the...

One of the most central Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City. We stayed there for 2 weeks.
The room was clean and the staff was helpful.
The buffet was good. We also enjoyed the foot massage very much.
We would stay there again next time.

We stayed in the Blue Diamond for 3 nights on our trip to Saigon. The hotel is in a great location, within a couple mins walk to the Independence Palace & War Remnants Museum. The rooms were spacious, clean and tidy and staff were very helpful. Breakfast was not as nice as the other hotels we visited in Vietnam but would not stop me from recommending.

I stayed here in February 2012 during a trip through South East Asia. This hotel was in a great location, less than five minutes from the main market and very easy to find. The staff were very helpful, and very accommodating when we wanted to store our luggage there during the day before our evening flight.

The included breakfast was a nice bonus, and there was a large variety of food.

The rooms were very nice and very clean. There wasn't a window in the room, which was a bit odd, but as a result the room was nice and quiet.

I would definitely stay here again if I go back to HCMC, and the price was excellent for what we got.
