Blue Diamond Hotel
Ranked #89 of 466 Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Blue Diamond was a great mid price hotel. Clean, efficient, decent room service. The bizarre Breakfast has been mentioned here already. I think they are trying to add a few more Western options ( we had bananas wrapped in creeps on morning) but pasta and burgers were still available. Wifi was pretty unreliable, even though we had the IT guy up to fix it. Fine location - short walk to most attractions. Nice beds, Overall, a good place to stay.

The hotel room was average. High step into bath tub. Small lobby, but nicely decorated. Convient location, short walk to covered bazaar shopping center and city center. Excellent breakfast buffet, a lot of choose from, different food everyday, lots of fresh fruit. The highlight of this hotel was the foot massage. It cost $8.00 US for one hour. I did this with my two guests, and we all sat next to each other while three young women massaged the hell out of our feet.

Check-in was simple and efficient. Staff were professional and able to handle requests. I paid for a standard room. No windows but the room was clean and spacious. Room service was fast and value for money. Gym Facilities were basic but OK for a few days. Breakfast in the mornings was very good and restaurant staff were friendly. Very cheap tours to the Mekong. TV had International channels. The free WiFi on the whole worked apart from a few hours while I was there. But a simple log-off, log-on seems to fix the issue. Close to markets and a cheap taxi ride from the airport and backpacker district if you feel the need to re-connect with other travellers.

Room Tip: Probably worth paying a little more to have a window room

Reception sometimes require you to pay full rate at check-in. Also, they reject a late check-out or any possibility to take a shower after a day out, although every other hotel I stayed in VN does this - and although they do have a shower in the gym. Just go there, if you want to have a shower after your day!

We stayed at the Blue Diamond for three nights. We had booked a standard double. In the picture of the room there was a window in it. We were dismayed to find that the window went into the hallway! We felt that we had been misled. The charge to change rooms was $10 per night. Our new room was really quite nice and spacious. Our room came with aircon, tv, safe, a proper bathroom, minibar and tea and coffee making facilities. It was also spotlessly clean. However, someone had left a half eaten plate of food in the hallway; it was there for three days, which is pretty disgusting. Breakfast was included, it was very good with a good selection to satisfy all tastes. The best thing about this hotel though is the location, it is ten minutes walk from most of the attractions and the bustling market. On balance I would recommend this place, just, but a bit more honesty in the photos would have been nice.

Room Tip: Ensure you pay a little extra to get a room with a window!

Stayed in a double room for 3 nights. Room was on the small side and didn't have a window. It was clean though. Had cable tv with a lot of channels which came in useful as I was sick for most of our stay! Breakfast was good with a good selection of foods. The staff were very helpful and pointed me in the right direction when it came to finding a medical clinic. Location is good, pretty central and within walking distance of bars, restaurants and shops.

Would probably stay again.

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.
