“Great hotel, great location”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

We stayed a total of three nights at Ruby River and it is a great place to stay. Right in the middle of district 1 it is within walking distance of a number of attractions and restaurants.

The staff were very helpful and went out of their way to ensure we had a pleasant stay.

Stayed June 2014, travelled as a couple

I stayed at the Ruby River in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It is an awesome hotel!! The staff was friendly and efficient. Breakfast was awesome and room service was great. The hotel is in a great location and the staff promptly calls a taxi which will take you anywhere you want to go for a small amount. The location of the hotel was great, near to the Ben Tayh Market and a bunch of other "must see" locations.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone and if I'm ever in Ho Chi Minh City again, I will definitely stay there.

Room Tip: The Ruby room is perfect!!

We found the place by crawling via the internet. After reading the comments we booked a 5 nights stay including airport pick up. We couldn't have come to a better place. The hotel is very well run, clean, staff tries to read every of your wishes from yr eyes and it is reasonable priced. The location is so central that you can get to most places on foot. Despite being in the middle of the city, nights are relatively quiet. They have different size rooms, it is a question of price. We were blown away by their friendliness and their desire to make you welcome. Free internet throughout, something we dearly missed in many Australian and European hotels. We'd happily come back any day.

The hotel is extremely conveniently located. The staff are very nice and rooms clean and cozy. On my birthday, I was surprised with a cake delivered to our room by one of teh hotel staff. What a wonderful gesture! That makes us feel special and appreciate the thoughtfulness of teh hotel staff even more.
We highly recommend the Ruby River Hotel.
