LOVE HOTEL ELEGANCE RUBY!!! I can't gush enough about Hotel Elegance Ruby, and we travel a lot, typically staying in 4-5-star hotels. We chose Hotel Elegance Ruby because of its rating, location, and remarkable value recommended by TripAdvisor, and were not steered wrong. It's located in the heart of the Old Quarter -- by far the best location (French Quarter is too stuffy and isolated from the lively heart of the city). It's on a quiet side street also with little shops selling vegetables, seafood and meats. When we arrived, a staff member immediately gave us delicious fresh watermelon smoothies and sat down with us to go over their convenient city map of art and museum sites, restaurants, and neighborhoods. Our first room was on the 8th (top) floor, and was perfect — loved the sleek, modern furniture! When we arrived, awaiting us was a bottle of white wine and basket of fresh exotic fruit, plus rose petals on the comfortable bed. We checked out of the hotel for two days for a Halong Bay trip, and when we returned we received an even bigger room -- and I mean BIG! The hotel is super-clean throughout. The free breakfast is astonishing: endless supply of pretty much whatever you wish from 6AM-10AM, from eggs and bacon and pancakes and croissants, to cheeseburgers, fresh fruit, exotic fruit smoothies, coffee and teas... They even have a second-floor lounge with a shower and comfortable furniture for that often-inconvenient post-check-out/pre-airport gap. BEST OF ALL: The staff of Hotel Elegance Ruby is EXTRAORDINARY: professional, knowledgeable, kind, generous, friendly, and catering to every need. We stayed at a 5-star hotel in Ho Chi Minh City and did not receive service as fine as this. When we return, we will most certainly stay here again. LOVE HOTEL ELEGANCE RUBY!!!
