When we stayed there, after few hours, the elevator broke down and we had to climb up and down 6 floors that day and the following day. A... More

We had only a short stay at Ruby River but were very pleased with this clean and centrally located hotel. Our double bedroom and en-suite were not very big, but quite comfortable. Although this hotel is located in a busy street, no street noise intrudes. The hotel is within walking distance of the most important tourist attractions, Opera House and... More

Friendly, helpful staff, clean rooms, great WiFi, wonderful air-conditioned rooms and excellent breakfasts were a feature of this hotel. What let it down was its poor proximity to shops and eateries making the use of a taxi necessary. Staff were also reluctant for us to walk around the immediate area which was a shame as the nearby art museum and... More

The staff here were great! We came from a more expensive hotel and couldn't really see much difference. The hotel is amazing value for the location and service! I'm not much of a breakfast person but the one day I had it it was very good.
