Was stay for one day only. I booked a room with twin bed but then they gave a room with 6 bunk bed exclusively just for two guest. Well, no problem. I sleep well. The room and the toilets are clean. The staff is so friendly as they offer a map and show some tourist site nearby. Location is so strategic.Had not take breakfast because my flight was in the early morning and asked if I could have some meals for take away. Well they prepare a big sandwich with egg inside. Hopefully next time visit Ho Chi Minh, I'll stay there again. Thanks Blue River
Good location , clean room, good service
It's near bus terminal, great room, comfy bed, comfy bathroom. very kind and helful staff
Everything was good, the hotel must change the channel, the coverage needs to be improve because it stuck every time I want to watch a movie, need to be improve more, just need to be improve, others is the best.
Wonderful location, close to bus terminal, it is more quiet than other places but not too far from the bars, pubs and restaurants. Staff are very friendly deluxe Room: Old furniture, no toothpaste, no tooth brush, breakfast is basic and No elevators, WiFi worked so badly.
Good service, nice room, like it!
This hotel has 3 great advantages : brand new, located in a very quiet street, in the heart of the city. Very nice rooms and dining room, very nice staff. But allow very late check-in (3 AM !!!) in the dorms every night is the reason why I moved... Plus bad soundproof bathroom. Anyway if you don't mind the noises or have earplugs I warmly recommend this hotel !!
Staff is so friendly and helful location is good near Bus station from there you can take bus No 109 to Tan Son Nhat airport. I will come back surely
The first night they put us in a another hotel lower standard because no room for us. How come! We are not understand but we have no choice we already pay with your website. The second day they move us to Blue River Hotel. This is not fair for us, but I guess you can not help fix it anyway. I am not recommend this hotel.
Nice hotel, nice staff, good in everything

Great place to stay
My family and I stayed here during our time in Ho Chi Minh city. There are some cons to staying here, the beds aren’t the most comfortable, and the stairs. There are only 2 rooms per floor, so the stairs get tiring fast. Aside from those 2 things I can’t think of any complaints. The hotel staff is top of the line. They were so friendly, every time we walk in or out they smile and greet us. The first night we stayed here, the shower happened to be a little small for me and my mother who has a bad back and struggles with stairs, so we asked to swap rooms and they put us in another room on a lower level. They’re so friendly and polite we decided to come back here to stay at the end of our trip.

Great Location
The Blue River Hotel serves the best location. Situated in a narrow street which lots of hotels stands, a perfect place for a cheap price. The tourist spots, restaurants and even the night market is just a few minutes walk from here. The hotel has two buildings (just across the road street from each other). The reception area is to the right and where their restaurant is in the second floor. Across the street, you can see their nice lounge made especially for their guests. Their reception area is quite small and simple. They gave us delicious welcome drinks upon our arrival. They also gave us a map of the city where the tourist spots can easily be located. They offer airport pick up/drop off. And there's free breakfast! The staff are very pleasant and always ready to help. They thoroughly explain important details about our booking. They also made suggestions for places we would like to visit and highlighted it on the map they gave us. They offer a variety of tours and you can easily book there. We even booked our Cu Chi Tunnel Tour there. They charge the tours along with your booking; no hassle on our part. Me and friends stayed at the dorm type room which is good for 6 people. We were only 4 so we have 2 extra beds. Good thing we visited Vietnam not on its peak season. The room is very nice, has its own bathroom, an airconditioning unit and every bed has its corresponding locker. Each bed has its own light and power outlet. The bed is very sturdy (I even asked one of my friends to go to the upper bunk and jump or dance around. The bed did not move or made any creaking sound.) Another thing I noticed is that the space between the upper and lower bunks is made really wide to accommodate taller guests. The bathroom is small and offers the basic necessities. It has a shower stall, a sink and a toilet. They also provide you with a shampoo and liquid soap in a dispenser in the shower stall and a toothbrush with toothpaste in a packet. The shower stall is narrow but at least it has a hot and cold shower. The only concern I can say about the bathroom is the exhaust. My friends and I noticed the lack of an exhaust in the bathroom and the smell of the bathroom would go around the room. Big thanks to the staff which were ever so helpful to accommodate us when my friend and I were very wet from the sudden downpour. And to the friendly Tony (not sure of the spelling) for engaging us about Filipino greetings. 😊 😊 😊 Take note: they will ask for your passport as you check in. They will give it back to you once you check out. Many hotels do this.

Paradies in city center
This is a nice small hotel close to city center. The staff is very friendly and always smiling. The room was big enough with window to the street, good aircon, TV and a fridge. The breakfast was good and the breakfast room very comfortable. There are many restaurants and bars in close walking distance. I enjoyed my stay very much.

4 stars but was very disappointed
First, the place is very nice, beautiful decor, service is excellent, rooms very clean and everything is good working order. What I'm very disappointed about was the bed; the foundation of any stay in a hotel. They offered me an upgrade to a slightly larger room with a larger bed and also a small balcony with a view to another hotel. So for a bit more money I took the upgrade. Like I mentioned before, everything worked well, the room was clean but the bed was the most uncomfortable bed I have slept on in Vietnam. They used two beds to form a large sleep surface area (common in many hotels) but the mattress was very stiff. In addition, the edges of the two beds had a very rigid solid frame and not soft ones. Its the first time I've ever seen a bed that had such hard borders/edges. My girlfriend stayed with me and it was impossible to lay together because of the gap from the 2 separate beds and because of the hard stiff edges it made it unbearable to even lie on it. So ultimately, it was useless to have 2 beds to make one large bed because you couldn't even use most of the area. So we had to sleep on one bed to be somewhat comfortable. I've seen other hotels with the same space and they didn't utilize 2 small beds so why they this beyond me. I did tell the service desk and they tried to help by putting a thin cloth for more comfort but it did nothing. The thick edges of the bed literally pressed against my back like I was sleeping on sticks. It was the 3 worst nights of sleep of my life. I'm just disappointed because for the money I paid I could have went to a cheaper hotel that I normally stay in when I visit Ho Chi Minh and got better comfort.
