We just checked out of the hotel today, and I felt compelled to leave a review after reading so many scathing reviews here on tripadvisor. I'm really not sure why so many people had left such bad reviews, as we had such a nice time. This was probably the nicest place we stayed so far on out travels in south... More

I use to go there during my business trip. Service it's ok but not all the staff speak a good english (but it's a common problem in Vietnam). I always stay there also because i don't like to change, but honestly speaking it needs a lifting!! Once they gave myself a smelly room, but i have told them this issue... More

Ramana certainly lived up to and exceeded expectations regarding the quality of room for the price we paid. The decor was nice and it was well kept up. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate with a good selection of western and Asian dishes. Our only complaints were with regard to front desk and location. The hotel never seemed to... More

We stayed here one night to catch our plane in the morning. The rooms are somewhat outdated, but large, and with huge beds. Breakfast looked good, but tasted disappointing. OK if you do not require anything special.

On arriving at this hotel we found that they had cancelled our reservation and so they left us in the reception for 1/2 hour while they tried to find us alternative rooms. The hotel is shabby, run down and there is smoking allowed so the corridors smell of smoke even though our room didn't. The location is also in no-man... More

We stayed at the Ramana Hotel 4 weeks ago for 2 nights. I was first given a room with a view of the back of another building. I had to kick a fuss in order to upgrade. In my original booking through asiarooms.com I had specified that I wanted a room with a nice view! The reception staff are rude,... More
