Very good quality-price ratio. Clean and proper rooms. Gentle staff. The recepcionist, Lala, was very friendly to us and speaks good English. Option of continental breakfast (omelette, fried eggs, ham and butter with bread...). The area is full of restaurants and shops

I prepaid for two weeks. The wifi never worked and the room was like a prison cell with no windows. I had to leave after the second night and the manager would only refund 3 nights (out of 12). Beware when booking on Agoda! The hotel manager has the power to issue a refund if you can't stay. She could...

My wife and I arrived at midnight on sunday and was told our room wasn't available because the aircon was broken. They put us in the hotel next door which was disgusting! The room wasn't clean and the shower was over the toilet! Next morning went back to the hotel and asked to see our room. The front desk told...

This family run hotel is located in a great setting in HCMC, and the staff were so friendly and helpful at all times. They booked restaurants for dinner when we'd picked them from the guidebook, gave advice on where to go and what prices to pay, and were just so helpful and kind. The rooms were reasonably sized, very clean...

The staff at the Blue River hotel were very helpfull. They helped us organize taxis and tours. The rooms are very clean and also gets clean every day. The hotel is in a great location and close to all the tourists attractions. Good value for money.

My husband and I stayed three nights with Blue River Hotel/Phan Lan. We realized that Blue River also works with Phan Lan, next door, for rooms. We were comfortable, and cool with the AC. Amber helped us with our tours/taxi/flights. Everyone was very hospitable and spoke English very well. They even allowed us to temporarily store our luggage there before...
