Came across this hotel while walking around the many alleyways in the backpacker's district.. Our twin room was very clean and comfortable during our 1 night stay. We had a room on the 3rd floor, facing the alleyway but it was very quiet, especially at night. Bathroom was modern and clean. Wifi (although I couldn't get connected) and breakfast are...

First off, sorry it took me 11 months to put up a review. Second, I guess this shows how great my experience was at the Blue River...I still remember it after 11 months. :) WOW! Words really can't express how well I was taken care of. I met a traveler and Laos and told him that I was staying at...

What made me decide to choose this was because of the good reviews of the staff. Saigon is laden with these small inns all over the city and the location works for people who don't want to sleep in the middle of the action. Most other hotels are beside the busy narrow streets so you'll hardly get some silence when...

What a great place to stay in Ho Chi Minh City! A great location with lots of character and within easy walking distance to Ben Thahn Market and other sights. Thuy is wonderful, very friendly and helpful. On our day of arrival she had arranged (previously via email) a driver and car to take us to see the Cu Chi...

We have stayed at the Blue River Hotel twice now this year. The Hotel is very clean and ideally situated to take advantage of all the highlights of Saigon. It is in an alley way that reduces the traffic noise and amount of street sellers. The reception staff are very helpful and would always advise the best way to get...

Firstly, the review below by Jenny is a poorly-disguised pitch for a different hotel. She complains that the hotel is in an alley, but that's one of the benefits. If you know Saigon and the continuous traffic noise, then it almost goes without saying that an alley location is preferable to something overlooking a major street. There are at least...

I have only high regards and praises for the location, service standards, the facilities and the prices during my stay in Blue River Hotel, located at the heart of bustling city of Ho Chi Minh.
