Highly recommended!

Location, nice staff, clean rooms
Hotel location is nice and rooms are clean. Budget friendly in terms of price. Staff was also accomodating and speaks English well. If you're looking for a hotel that's not that pricey but gives enough comfort and convenience, this is the place to be.

Nice hotel!!!

Staff was great. Location is good. Value for money.
We have booked to rooms in the hotel, when we arrive they requested if we can move to a family room or move to 1 of their hotels due to the room we have booked was unavailable. We agreed to move to the other hotel and return next morning. At first we are a little but disappointed. Following day, we have return to the hotel, the staff was accommodating and booked for the tour packages we requested. Rooms are new and good compared to the rooms we have stayed the first night. The location is great. Cheap. Comfortable. Having a chance to be back to HCM ill definitely stay in this hotel and recommend to some friends.

Moved me location!

Was moved location
When i arrived i was told that i was being moved to a hotel 5 or 6 doors down the road as they were overbooked! The hotel they moved me to Victory Hotel 2 destipe the fact the reviews are worse for this hotel and it is also between £4 to £5 cheaper to stay here i was not refunded the difference in price. The room itself was ok but like i say blue river reviews are better i had bug spray so killed the ants in the bathroom. After my 1st 2 nights expired as the room was ok. I decided i will book another night as i didnt want to have to move my luggage again. I was then told that i should have booked online for blue river hotel despite them moving me to victory hotel 2! Of course they wanted this as blue river is more expensive even tho i wasnt staying there! On the 3rd day they walked into my room without knocking and asked if i would move room as my room had to beds in it and there was a family coming. Ive stayed in a lot of hotels around the world and this is the 1st time ive been asked to move room halfway through the day! This was an inconvenience as i had planned to go out and had a lot of luggage to move. I moved to another nearby hotel the next day as it was a lot of problems between location switching, not being refunded for the price difference after moving and having to move room halfway through the day. After speaking to 1 of the near by hotels i learned that this is a common theme with blue river and they overbook on purpose then move people to cheaper hotels so they can make more profits.

Excellent customer service

Excellent customer service, location
It was our first time to stay in a backpackers hotel and we were not disappointed at all. Thuy at the reception was most helpful, arranging tours and bus tickets for us, going out of her way to ensure we were comfortable and enjoying hcmc. When we came back from mui ne hours ahead of our flight out to SG, she even offerred leaving our bags at the hotel at no extra charge so we can still go out and do some shopping. We will definitely be back!

Great, budget-friendly hotel

location, English-speaking concierge, clean room
Clean and comfortable accommodations at a fair price. The concierge was very helpful and made sure we knew how to operate the in-room safe.

UK traveller in HCM

Staff were friendly and helpful - location is very good - room was very good for a 2 star hotel
My stay was very pleasant here at the Blue River Hotel. Breakfast is basic but good. Wifi was ok but sometimes was weak, in general it's ok. The staff were very good here at this hotel. The room was cleaned everyday and kept in order. For a 2 star hotel it had many things in this hotel. I would recommend this hotel for the traveller in Saigon. I came back to this hotel as I was there last year and my stay was good :)

Worse Experience

Blue River Hotel
Stay at Blue River is the worst experience I ever had in my life.. First thing they didn't reserve the standard room which we booked and asking us to pay extra 5 USD for another room with out informing that they don't have room for us. They don't have lift and asked us to carry our luggage ourself to 3rd floor. While we asked for Standard room they said need to wait until 8.30 pm and the lady staff in the reception used arrogant words and very rude. Please don't recommend such hotel which is giving wrong info about their facility and also about the location. It is located inside a very narrow street.
