We arrived after a night bus journey so it was very early. However staff were very kind and friendly and let us have our room at 5am, which was obviously great! The food was excellent and staff were constantly smiling and always helpful. We rented e-bikes from them for the day, which worked well and there were no problems. Check... More

Ruby True is a good base for exploring the wonderful Bagan region. The hotel offered great value for money for the budget conscious traveler who is looking to avoid the over priced five star hotels. The room was simple, clean and a nice place to rest your aching limbs after long days of sight seeing. Yaya the manager is wonderful... More

The room was a bit cold and dark, the bathroom dated, and the pool in the photos on Trip Advisor belongs to a hotel down the street, which requires a several minute walk down a dusty road and payment of $5 USD. Fortunately, the property's shortcomings are more than made up for by the spectacular service, administered by veritable superwoman,... More

The staff here are so kind and helpful, especially under the caring eye of Lady Wawa. They are very genuine and truly want to make your stay memorable and encourage you to come back and send your friends, both to Myanmar and their hotel. I accidentally booked the wrong nights at the last minute, and despite their cancellation policy, Lady... More

I totally loved this place! Everything was perfect from the nice clean room, beautiful gardens to the great food. But what I think I was more impressed with was their staff. They received us with open arms and made sure that every single thing in our agenda was taken care off. Ms. Yellow is such a sweet lady! I'll will... More

While a little off the beaten path, Ruby True did not disappoint. The rooms are modest but clean, which after long days of traveling around Bagan on a e-bike, was a must. But the most special thing about Ruby True was the service. Mama went out of their way to help us with our travel plans, even making phone calls... More

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff at Ruby True - they really go out of their way to make your stay a memorable one. The hotel itself is great, set in lovely gardens, a little outside New Bagan (10 mins walk to the main street and restaurants etc..etc...).It's a very quiet, peaceful spot. Rooms have all the amenties... More
