I stayed here for a night early April as part of my Intrepid tour, and I was impressed. Our room was large - plenty of space for two person's luggage - and had a window. It was at the back so wasn't noisy. Aircon worked well, as did all the amenities in the bathroom. Beds and pillows were comfortable and... More

Room was clean (bed was pretty hard), staff were generally good (especially the young night clerk) and walking distance to markets, cafes, massages and shops etc. No frills but good wifi and breakfast was basic but good. Really cant complain when you pay such a reasonable price for a hotel room in the middle of the city.

Stayed here as part of intrepids pre and post accommodation and it was awful. The two reception girls are rude and unhelpful, the bathroom fixtures in the shower would fall off every time the water was turned on which resulted in the water flowing everywhere, and you better get in for breakfast early because they hardly have any food left...

I spent 4 nights in Saigon (HCMC) at this hotel. The staff were helpful and I have no complaints about them at all. I booked one of their more expensive rooms, but thought US$45 for it was reasonable. The WiFi worked fine, as did the A/C in my room. The unit had a rattle to it, but I learned how... More

Changed its name from Thanh Thien to Asian Ruby 4 to Asian Ruby Central. In the meantime, undergone minor renovations and changed management and got a new cook. It is a very centrally located hotel that is within walking distance to many local attractions and shops and restaurants and coffee shops and convenience stores. And the ubiquitous ATM's are everywhere!... More

A very enjoyable three night stay. location is perfect. Great value. Can walk to most attractions.markets only two minutes away. Plenty of near by dining and drinking choices in any direction. Treat at yourself to a cut throat razor shave across the road Would stay here again

A beautiful hotel located within easy walking of tons of restaurants, convenience stores and fruit stands. Fast WiFi, comfortable bedding, really nice shower and bathroom. I have stayed at hotels costing nearly twice as much in HCMC and thet have not been as nice. Very nice breakfast buffet with a combination of western and Vietnamese foods. They offer a $12... More

We have free upgraded to city view room for 5 days. Staff were very friendly, breakfast was good, delicous coffee and perfect location. They organise airport transfer for fair rate and much better and safer than taxi

You get to deal with the rudest staff I experienced in 5 weeks of travelling throughout Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia. We had given them our passports to copy and an hour later when we asked for them, they rolled their eyes and acted like we were giving them so much grief. I found out later when I met the manager,...
