“Very VERY good for the price”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

I've stayed at Blue Diamond several times now for business trips, and I love it here. It's not the most luxurious, but its convenient, clean, has an excellent free breakfast buffet, and the staff are helpful. There are a few things I would change, and since I started staying here shortly after they opened its gotten a more "lived-in" feel. The breakfast buffet is so great, with all kinds of food- most stuff is in chafing dishes, but if something isn't hot anymore, the staff will warm it up for you very quickly and courteously. Plus its close to everything, but on a relatively quiet street. The rooms are pretty quiet too. Bonuses- the foot massage place on the 2nd floor is great, and their is a really good tailor (Huong) right across the street!

Room Tip: Rooms on the back of the hotel (not facing the street) are quieter, as are rooms without real window...

Decent hotel in an excellent spot. It was close to everything but not too loud with traffic. One issue was the room not having any windows which made them stuffy when the air con was not on during the day.

The shower was rubbish - no pressure and a huge step up over the bath, but the beds were good - you could actually sleep on them without waking up sore and grumpy.

Breakfast was mainly Vietnamese with minimal western so we were forced to step out of our comfort zone, the quality of the food was pretty good with lots of variety.

Staff were polite and friendly, although there were some things lost in translation. Doorman went above and beyond for us. There was also someone at reception 24hours.

We stayed 3 nights and had a pleasant stay :)

It would be difficult to ask for more after choosing this hotel based on price, value, and location. They delivered on all 3!

Our room was small (and lacked natural light/windows as expected from other reviews) but was clean and comfortable. Air conditioning worked great and room was cleaned well each day. In-room safe was efficient for valuables.

The breakfast that was included was fantastic. A lot of different Asian and Western options offered each day, and parts of the selection changed each morning. Very satisfied and better than expected!

After exploring several areas for a massage based on price and cleanliness, we decided to use the hotel's option. Not disappointed at all! The facility was great, the masseuse(s) were polite and skilled, and the price was reasonable (12 USD/250,000 VND = 70 min).

We booked one tour through the hotel: Mekong Delta Tour. 12 USD/person. Great value, but definitely felt like we were exploiting the local people while on the tour :(

2 places near the hotel that you should not miss:
*L'Usine (one on Le Loi and one on Dong Khoi) - 2-for-1 wines (95,000 VND) from 4pm to 8pm everyday and food was ridiculously good!
*i.d. cafe (upstairs) - awesome little cafe less than a block away

We stayed in Blue Diamond Hotel in HCMC for 4 days and we really had a great time. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It was obvious that they know how to treat their guests very well. The facilities were as described in their website. The hotel's location was excellent; we didn't have to ride the taxi just to tour the city's main attractions. They were walking distance from the hotel! The breakfast buffet could use a little variation, though, but overall, our stay in this hotel was really a nice experience.

I'd gladly recommend this hotel to my friends!

This hotel is conveniently located in a neighborhood full of animation, the rooms are very nice and quiet, unless you fall on us as very noisy and inconsiderate neighbors, at night they communicated them open, but the hotel can not do anything. As often and almost always, the home is very clean Hotel. Good breakfast, but can be a bit of Asian dishes.

อยู่หลังตลาดเบนถัน เดินไม่เกิน3นาที อาหารการกินรอบโรงแรมพร้อม ใกล้ที่เที่ยวหลักทุกอันในเมือง
ห้องสะอาด ของใช้ในห้องครบ
อาหารเช้าดีมากมีหลากหลาย
มีday trip ที่สามารถมารับได้ที่โรงแรม
(ถ้าไปจองเองที่ ฟามงูเหลา จะถูกกว่านิดหน่อย)
This hotel is on the street just behind Ben Thanh Market. You can find everything to fulfill your stomach there. Main tourist attractions are in walking distance from this hotel.
Breakfast was excellent, varieties of international and Vietnamese food.
