Good but major missteps ”

Blue River bunk rooms were good and normally I would give them a better rating; HOWEVER I went out for the day and came back to find my room literally demolished. The bunks were gone and beds removed. They moved my belongings without telling me which I find highly inappropriate. Additionally, they did not get everything I had on the bed and therefore lost a few things. They were very apologetic and gave me a room in another nice place, but the fact they didn’t tell me they were going to tear the room down (when they had plenty of Chances that morning) as well as moving and losing my belongings is unacceptable.

This hotel sucks. No elevator, such an inconvenience, especially when you are on the 4th floor! Had to switch room because the window in the bathroom is broken, so mosquitoes were able to get in. We had so many bites. We asked to switch room or fix the window. They decide to switch room for us. The first room they tried to give us was so dirty and gross, so we did not accept. The 2nd room was a little better but much much smaller and had a leaky faucet, so you hear running water the whole time. The staff were super friendly and tried to do their best to help the situation, but the hotel sucks.

We would definitely book this hotel again. ”

My friend and I booked the Blue River Hotel, however, when we arrived, the rooms were full. The staff told us that we would be transferred to another hotel, Beauty Guest House, at no cost (we have already paid for it). It was a five-minute walk from the Blue River Hotel; and although they offered to take us to the other hotel by motorbike, we refused and insisted that we walk instead. When we arrived at the Beauty Guest House hotel, the staff was nice and accommodating. Since we arrived at the hotel several hours earlier than the check-in time, the receptionist gave us a map and suggested a few places where we can go for the mean time. The room we were given may be small but it was surprisingly clean and updated. The bathroom was also nice, except you have to hold the shower head/hose because it shoots water at a distance when mounted (it wasn’t adjustable). Overall, me and my friend were very satisfied with our stay. Great location and room for a cheap price. I would definitely books this hotel again when I stay in Ho Chi Minh.

Overall pleasant and comfortable stay”

When we first arrived, we were shocked because the hotel is located inside a small hidden lane behind the front shops, luckily the taxi driver brought us in, and immediately upon arriving, we were greeted with the brightest smile from the staffs.When checking in, they kept our passports for security purposes due to fear of robbery, but we requested to keep it ourselves, it seems that majority of the hotels there will provide this safe box service. The rooms we got weren't the ones shown in the picture (blue and white theme), instead, we got a different theme instead purplish kind of theme. There are no elevator and room keys provided are not like those access key cards where you can just tap and unlock. Nevertheless, the rooms are comfortable to stay in, they also provide everyday cleaning service for the room so when we were out to explore the Ho Chi Minh city for the day and come back we would find that the room is cleaned and organized with our belongings still inside the room. at here, WiFi service is provided for free at a very acceptable speeds. The staffs are fluent in english and are willing to help in any way they can, for example, we wanted to go to Suoi Tien amusement park and don't know how to go there, they would gather the information and explain it to us. Overall, the service is one of the best quality that can be found in this hotel, you just need to ask.

Best service ever!”

Location excellent, nice breakfast provided.

We stayed at Blue River for 1 night but it was definitely the best service we received over our whole trip in Asia. Recommendations for great places to eat, which taxi company to use (not a commission thing, there are just a lot of ripoffs - which we experienced before his recommendation) he provided us with a umbrella when it started to rain. He also purchased our tickets for the train and recommended a day tour to experience the Cu Chi Tunnels (Provided: Happy Tours). This tour was a big highlight in our short time at Ho Chi Minh.

staff were friendly, accommodating and helpful. This hotel was within walking distance of all major places of interest. smack bang in the middle of Ho Chi Minh but secluded. Tucked away down a narrow laneway so no traffic. You walk to the end of the lane and you are in the beautiful mayhem of Saigon. Surrounded by resturants, markets and main shopping complexs. across the rd from a parkland area that runs the length of the rd that leads to the main markets. A little gem with the same quality as much dearer hotels. The only thing is there is no elevator to the higher levels but exercise wont kill you, especially when your saving more than half again of what you would pay for the convience of a lift.

Nice quiet hotel in a noisy part of town”

Clean, quiet and freindly

We stayed 4 nights in the Blue River and found it very convenient to the bustle of district 1 and not too far by foot to the river, the market and some upmarket restaurants. The room was very clean and although overlooking a lane was quiet at night since it was 'sheltered' from the traffic and activity of the main streets around it. The staff was friendly although some lacked sufficient english to help us with a couple of things. The breakfast is limited but it nourished us and there is plenty nearby at very cheap prices if you need a top up!
