Asian Ruby Luxury Hotel
Ranked #148 of 459 Hotels in Ho Chi Minh City
Reviewed 1 January 2014

The Asian Ruby is in district 1 in Saigon and has very good access to the major sights of Saigon - close (about 5-10 minutes from the Reunification Palace and the war remnants museum, post office and cathedral, and a short walk down the street to the river.
Our accommodation was on the 7th floor overlooking the main street. From the reception and service the standards were very good and the room was very clean and recently refurbished. The bedroom was quite spacious and the walk in shower very good.
The down side is the breakfast - having been in Vietnam by now for 10 days and changed location and venue on 4 occasions through our trip - this was by comparison the worst breakfast that we had encountered. having said that - we had perhaps been somewhat spoilt at our previous venues.

Room Tip: There are some rooms in the hotel that do not have a window - believe it or not! - check that you ha...

The positives: Good central location in District 1 within walking distance of most of what you'll want to see; clean rooms that aren't too cramped; delicious breakfast buffet in a top-floor room overlooking the city and the river, and a helpful staff.
The negatives: The public areas need some updating (replace that soiled, worn carpet in the hallways), very cramped elevators and dangerously slippery tile on the shower and bathroom floor (a common problem I've experienced in Asian hotels).
The Asian Ruby rates a solid gentleman's "C".

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window and a view. Ours had a window looking out at a soslid wass 5 feet away...

The Asian Ruby is well situated for exploring the main tourist and shopping areas of HCMC. I was able to walk everywhere within 15-20 minutes, with some very good restaurants very close by. The hotel is well appointed and better than the 3 star quality I had expected. My room overlooked the street with just some minor street noise at night. The service was reasonably good (for Vietnam). A wide range of choices for for breakfast. I would happily come back to the Asian Ruby.

It is a 3-star hotel, so i'd expect moderate services and room conditions. Turns out to be much better than expected. Toss in an addition 1 or 2 facility this will be qualify for 4-star.

We stayed one night at the twin deluxe room with windows facing the main street. Rooms is big and comfy. Toilets are clean with bathtub as well. One thing though, at 88USD/night I would not considered it as cheap but it is walking distance to all the tourist attractions.

Worth the stay.

Room Tip: Those facing the main roads might not be a good idea though it comes with windows as it gets really...

It is a small room with no window. But it is clean n comfortable room. The toilet was clean. The bed n everything in the room was perfect. Their service was perfect also. They charged me USD 32 for airport transfer. For me the price was ok since i dont want to get any trouble with normal cab. The location was near to the tourist attraction. I just walk around and didn't take any public transport since all the place are near by. Love the street and no doubt i will return to this hotel again if i visit hcmc in future.

Stayed at this hotel on 2 occasions during our stay in HCM and enjoyed the experience. Good value and well located in the 'Japanese' section of the city in close proximity to the Reunification Palace and 15 minutes walk to the Ben Thanh Market. Our double room was comfortable, but the lighting could be improved and there was hardly any space between the wardrobe and the bed. No view from our window but no complaints about that as it was quiet. The lobby area is nicely decorated and had different aromatherapy scents; the first time was ginger, the second was lemon grass. The staff was friendly and helpful. The well-stocked buffet breakfast was also very good; lots of choices.

We stayed here for two nights at the beginning of our Vietnam trip and loved it. The rooms are small but clean and have everything you could need in them. Hotel staff are friendly and helpful and the buffet breakfast is as nice as a buffet breakfast can be! This hotel is located on a smaller one way street so it doesnt recieve as much traffic so you can avoid the constant honking as you are trying to sleep! Highly recommend
