“On the whole, good little hotel in great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2009

We knew we would be out and about and having quite long days in HCMC, so we wanted a clean and relatively inexpensive hotel in a good location and on the whole thats what we got.

Couple of minor gripes - breakfast could have been better with more choice and replenished items when they had been eaten - we had breakfast at 9am on our first day (breakfast is open until 10am) and there was not much left and no sign of new things coming out. When we checked out on the last day the guy on the front desk didn't give me the credit card terminal to allow me to enter my pin and wouldn't listen when I tried to tell him that's what I needed to do (he kept putting random 4 digits in) and ended up blocking my card, which I am still trying to sort.

The guys on the front door were very helpful and got us taxis when we needed them. It is easy to walk to all the major sites from here and despite the couple of above things I would recommended this hotel.

Although in a faily good location in District 1, this hotel is not on my recommend list.
The rooms were clean and neat, however very smelly. We finally tracked down the smell and it was coming from the water in the drain in the bathroom. Everytime someone in another room flushed the toilet it bubbled up through the drain. Not nice. And the whole hotel smelt the same.
The staff were friendly enough, but not very helpful.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2009

We stayed at the Asian Ruby in October 2009, and were delighted to be upgraded to a suite room. That room had a pleasant sitting area and the entire suite was very clean with an extra comfortable bed, and was a pleasure to come back to after a hot day trudging the streets of HCMC.
When we reported a couple of minor problems (no adaptor for the kettle, and no bathroom light) the response was impressive. The maid found an adaptor for the kettle within 30 seconds, and within much the same time two staff were working at fixing the bathroom lights - which they had done by the time we came back from lunch an hour later.
We found the breakfast good with a variety of vietnamese food and fruit as well as western style cereals and toast.
Most impressive of all to us was that the hotel noticed that my wife had a birthday during the time we were there, and the hotel presented her with a birthday card and a very nice bunch of flowers (quite a big bunch that included 18 roses - and made some of my gifts of flowers to her on birthdays at home look a bit shoddy!!!)
All in all we thought that the staff were terrific, and the hotel terrific value. I should add that it is within walking distance to the Ben Thanh markets and to lots of restaurants.
