Teh team of Blue River gave us a marvelous experience. They were very helpful and fun. No question asked was too much. The day started with a good breakfast, plenty on the menu to choose from. It is located in an alley off a busy street, there is no noise pollution. I am

Shoutout to Bree (hopefully I got the spelling correct) for being so kind to us during our stay in Blue River. For accommodating us from the moment we were at the hotel and until checkout. 😌 Our stay at Blue River was pretty good because its’ location is pretty easy to find

This hotel is clean, central, well air conditioned, and has fabulous staff. It is excellent value for money. As a family of 4 we paid about $50/night including breakfast which was simple but filling. And it was very easy walking distance to most of the central sites.

Not even attached to cupboard, screws left beside Safe.
I took a bus from the airport which was driving to a station near the street where the hotel is. From there it's a short walk. check on google for HCMC airport bus, there should be 2 different buses. and check on google map where the hotel is. Taxis always cheat you from airports or bus stations. on the way back you can call uber or grab taxis. just download the apps.

They don’t, pay upon check in or once you have made sure the room is ok and they won’t keep hold of it. It’s just a general practice before payment in Vietnam. For instance all throughout Thailand they ask for a stupid deposit for the key that is some disproportionate amount. You’ll get use to it

"No elevators, so if this is an issue for you, ask for a room on the first floor."
"The Premier Deluxe Double Room is great (don't take the Superior Double Room)"
"get a map from reception desk. helpful"
"Saigon has more than 2000 hotels. Lot's of choice ;-)"
