Goodnight, Saigon

So this is the end of our Vietnam adventure.

For the last 2 days, we have been exploring Saigon. It's not as bad as we had thought when we got here, but it certainly isn't a thrilling city. As far as we can tell, the locals don't do much for fun except buzz around on their scooters. Hardly any movie theaters, the National Theater doesn't …

You Can Call Me "Miss Saigon"

Yesterday we had our final lunch in lovely Hoi An, then hopped a bus 30 minutes west to the Danang airport. Danang is a weird little town- it's on the gorgeous Vietnam coastline, and they're building 5 star resorts on the beach. Yet right across the street shall we say...less than charming. All the existing buildings are communist-era and …

Phnom Penh

A travel blog entry by fishytuktuk on Nov 15, 2013

After a horrid night at Royal Palace hotel, it was time to venture out in the great Phnom Penh, but not before we sample the local delicacy of hotel breakfast - which turned out to be a non event. Socheth our pre-arranged tuktuk chaffeur was waiting for us on the dot. First we went to Cheoung Ek killing fields, where around 8,000 were buried after …

Met de trein, ook wel de Reunion Express, kwamen we aan in de hoofdstad van Vietnam: Saigon (officieel Ho Chi Minh City, maar dat wordt niet veel gebruikt en zelfs niet op de treinkaartjes). Na eerst de verkeerde kant op te zijn gestuurd, liepen we een paar kilometers naar het hotel met ondertussen een noodzakelijke stop bij de Burger King. Een …

    Historical Traveler Reviews Blue River Hotel Ho Chi Minh City

    Fantastico! Rapporto qualità/prezzo imbattibile.... personale premuroso, competente e gentile.


    Abbiamo passato due settimane al Blue River verso la metà di ottobre 2007. La direttrice e la sua assistente parlavano un ottimo inglese e hanno fatto tutto il possibile per rendere il nostro soggiorno piacevole e comodo. I prezzi sono paragonabili a quelli di altri alberghi dei dintorni nel "quartiere dei backpacker" (circa €10 per una singola; in tre abbiamo pagato €13). In nessuno degli alberghi non grandi c'è il ristorante, ma qui c'è una piccola sala colazione dove la mattina servono caffè e uova. Se avete una marca preferita di caffè istantaneo portatevelo con voi. In tutto il Vietnam il caffè viene servito con latte zuccherato e il tipo istantaneo usato dall'albergo veniva in un pacchetto (Nescafè?) che includeva latte in polvere e zucchero.

    Il personale è la cosa più bella di quest'albergo. Potete essere sicuri che vi consiglieranno bene qualunque sia la domanda. "Dove posso comprare questo?... Dov'è il miglior ristorante?" In meno di due giorni ci siamo sentiti parte della famiglia.

    Great!! Best price performer... thoughtful, competent and kind staff.


    We stayed at the Blue River for two weeks in mid-October 2007. The manager and her assistant spoke English very well and did everything possible to make our stay pleasant and comfortable. The rates are comparable to nearby hotels in the "backpacker area" ($15 US for a single - we paid $20 for our party of three). None of the smaller hotels have restaurants, but morning coffee and eggs are served in a little breakfast area. If you have a favorite brand of instant coffee, bring it with you. Throughout Vietnam coffee is served with sweetened milk and the instant brand used by the hotel comes in a packet (Nescafe?) with powdered milk and sugar already added.

    The big "plus" for this hotel is the staff. You can trust their advice on any question. "Where can I buy this?...What's the best restaurant?" Within a couple of days we felt like family.

    ¡Magnífico! El mejor precio promedio.. un personal, atento, considerado y amable


    Nos alojamos durante dos semanas de mediados de octubre de 2007 en el Blue River. Tanto el director como su ayudante hablaban muy bien en inglés e hicieron todo lo posible para que tuviésemos una estancia agradable y cómoda. Los precios son comparables con los de los hoteles de mochileros de la zona (unos 15 Usd la habitación individual - pagamos 20$ al ser 3) Ninguno de los hoteles pequeños tiene restaurante pero te servían café y huevos para desayunar en una pequeña zona de desayunos. Si tienes una marca favorita de café instantáneo, llévala contigo. Por todo Vietnam te sirven un café con leche muy dulce, y el café instantáneo de sobre (¿Nescafé?) usado por los hoteles lleva ya la leche en polvo y el azúcar.

    La mayor ventaja de este hotel es su personal. Te puedes fiar de ellos para todo. ¿Dónde puedo comprar tal cosa...?¿Cual es el mejor restaurante? En un par de días nos sentíamos como en familia.

    Toll! Bestes Preis- Leistungsverhältnis. Fürsorgliche, kompetente und freundliche Angestellte.


    Wir haben zwei Wochen Mitte Oktober 2007 im Blue River verbracht. Die Managerin und ihre Assistentin haben sehr gut Englisch gesprochen und haben alles gemacht um unseren Aufenthalt so angenehm und bequem wie möglich zu gestalten. Die Preise sind vergleichbar mit anderen Hotels in der sogenannten "Rucksacktouristen Gegend" ($15 für ein Einzelzimmer, wir haben $20 für ein Dreibettzimmer bezahlt). Keines der kleineren Hotels hat ein Restaurant, man erhält jedoch einen Kaffee und Eier am Morgen, die in einer kleinen Frühstücksnische serviert werden. Wenn Sie einen Lieblingskaffee haben, sollten Sie ihn mitbringen. In Vietnam wird der Kaffee mit gesüßter Milch serviert und der lösliche Kaffee enthält bereits Milchpulver und Zucker.

    Der große Vorteil des Hotels sind die Angestellten. Sie können ihrem Rat in jeder Hinsicht folgen. "Wo kann ich dies kaufen?... Was ist das beste Restaurant?" Nach wenigen Tagen haben wir uns wie ein Teil der Familie gefühlt.

    Un super petit hôtel à Ho Chi Minh


    Nous sommes restés 6 nuits (2+2+2) au Blue River (283/2C Pham Ngu Lao street, Dist 1, Ho Chi Minh) en juillet et en août 2007. Notre séjour s'est merveilleusement bien passé. 16 USD pour une chambre double avec salle de bains, clim, télévision, frigo, petit déjeuner et accès Internet gratuit près de la réception.

    À la fin de notre dernier séjour, ils avaient terminé des travaux de rénovation qui faisait passer la capacité de l'hôtel de 7 à 14 chambres et on nous a donné l'une des nouvelles chambres qui avait un petit balcon. Les chambres étaient impeccables et très calmes. Le personnel est adorable et très attentionné et son emplacement est parfait. Il y a même un bar Bia Hoi au bout de l'allée. Je reviendrais ici sans hésiter.

    Un piccolo grande albergo di Ho Chi Minh


    Siamo rimasti al Blue River (via Pham Ngu Lao283/2C, Dist 1, Ho Chi Minh) un totale di sei notti (2+2+2) durante luglio e agosto 2007 e lo abbiamo trovato incantevole. Circa €10 per una doppia con bagno, aria condizionata, TV, frigorifero, colazione e internet gratis nell'area della reception. Quando ci siamo stati l'ultima volta avevano appena completato di ristrutturare l'hotel allargandolo da 7 a 14 camere; in questa occasione ci hanno dato una di quelle nuove la quale aveva anche un piccolo balconcino. Le camere erano immacolate e tranquille. Il personale era molto dolce e premuroso e l'ubicazione molto comoda; c'era anche un posto dove servono bia hoi alla fine del vicolo. La prossima volta non ci penserei due volte a tornare in quest'albergo.

    Tolles kleines Hotel in HCMC


    Waren im Juli und August 2007 insgesamt 6 Nächte hier (2+2+2) im Blue River Hotel (283/2C Pham Ngu Lao Street, Distrikt 1, Ho Chi Minh City) und fanden es wirklich super. Das Doppelzimmer mit Bad, Klimaanlage, TV, Kühlschrank und kostenloser Internetnutzung im Rezeptionsbereich kostet $16 USD. Als wir zum letzten Mal dort waren, hatten Sie die Renovierungsarbeiten abgeschlossen und das Hotel von 7 auf 14 Zimmer erweitert, eines der neuen Zimmer hat auch einen kleinen Balkon. Die Zimmer waren tadellos sauber und ruhig. Die Angestellten waren sehr lieb und hilfsbereit und die Lage ist super praktisch. Am Ende der Gasse ist sogar ein großer Bia Hoi. Würden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen.

    Pequeño gran hotel en la ciudad de HCM


    Pasamos un total de 6 noches (2+2+2) en Julio y Agosto de 2007 en el hotel Blue River (Calle Pham Ngu Lao 283/2C, Distrito 1, Ciudad de Ho Chi Minh, y fueron una delicia. A 16 Usd una habitación doble con baño privado, aire acondicionado, TV, nevera, desayuno e Internet gratuito en la zona de recepción. Para cuando estuvimos la última vez ya habían terminado las obras de remoldelación que ampliaban el hotel de 7 a 14 habitaciones y nos dieron una de las nuevas que tenía un pequeño balcón. Las habitaciones estan limpísimas y son tranquilas. Es un personal muy dulce y servicial y la ubicación es muy adecuada - incluso hay un puesto de bia hoi justo al final del callejón. No dudaré en volver a alojarme en este hotel la próxima vez.

    Great little hotel in HCMC


    We stayed a total of 6 nights (2+2+2) at the Blue River Hotel (283/2C Pham Ngu Lao Street, Dist 1, Ho Chi Minh City) in July and August 2007 and it was truly delightful. $16 USD for a double room with own bathroom, air con, TV, fridge, breakfast and free internet in the reception area. By the time of our last stay they had completed renovations, expanding the hotel from 7 to 14 rooms, and we were given one of the new rooms with a little juliet balcony. The rooms were spotless and quiet. The staff are very sweet and helpful and the location is very convenient - there's even a bia hoi place just at the end of the alley. I wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel next time.
