“Pretty good Hotel but noisy rooms at the front”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

We had had a pretty bad experience with a Taxi Driver trying to con us out of money en route from the airport to the Hotel, so were not in the best of moods when we arrived. When this guy in reception said we would not be staying at the Asian Ruby 3 but would be taken to another Hotel, my Husband flipped and said he would report them to Agoda/Trip Adviser as we did not want to go to a Hotel we had not reviewed. This seemed to work and we were taken to a room on 7th floor The room was OK; not a lot of space around the bed but enough to get in and out. The en suite bathroom was nice, with a tub and shower and complimentary shampoo etc. We had a city view which was lovely, especially as the sun set in the evenings and the city lights came on. We looked out over a park and bus depot, which was noisy up to about 10 pm at night. The buses start in the mornings at about 05:45; I hadn't realised what the bleeping was every morning and thought it was an alarm from a neighbouring room, then realised on our final morning its the buses reversing bleep. Breakfast was OK but get down early as they didn't seem to stock up again after 08:30am - kitchen closed at 09:30. We had to ask for fruit juice and eggs one morning at 08:40 am. Location wise the Hotel is in a great position for everything and the reception staff do try to help when approached. Best staff by far are the Bell Boys who are always around to help with bags or problems with your room.

Room Tip: We were on the 7th floor facing the park and it was very noisy.

Not a whole lot to say except it is all Good here. I like the location. Walking distance to many places in Dist.1. Very Nice rooms and Bathrooms with good views. Price is competitive but good for what you get.
In Room WiFi is good too. For Vietnam standards it is rather quite here considering it's central location. Most places in any city here can be rather Niosy but here it is ok.
If you are looking for good clean nice place with a great central location this is for sure a good pick.

Was here about 2 years back and had excellent service. Maybe the team has changed. This group at counter are impatient. Tried to call them to inform I would be arriving a day late but she kept asking for my name which I repeated 4-5 times. Requested for someone else to speak to and she just passed to another lady whom couldn't speak much English. Had to request to speak to hotel supervisor.

Arrived and the night was horrible. Was not feeling well and all i need was a good rest. Put right next to the lift and could hear the operation of the lift entire night and slamming of doors with same floor and the level above.

Requested for a change of room the next day which was accepted and the room I was put was much smaller than the original that I had. This looks like a room for singles (booked for 2). This room is definately the size i came 2years back, meant for single booking. Hotel insisted it is slight variance in size is purely to contain the twin bed. The room barely have any walking space. Wash room had a hole at ceiling which they fail to cover up. Water dripping entire night. request assistance over the phone to help operate the overhead spray but was rejected without trying.I did not want or think it's necessary to send someone up but subsequently had no choice as I couldn't find the knob to connect to overhead spray.

Generally it's an ok hotel if you don't mind the noises and minimum communication with the rude counter staffs. Bell boys and chambermaid (on 5th level) are quite nice and helpful.

I was a bit concerned when we arrived at Asia Ruby 3 as we thought we were booked in at another in this chain. We had been upgraded to a room overlooking the park, which was appreciated. The staff were very friendly and helpful. My initial concerns were allayed when we walked around for the first time and I realised just how central the location was. We were able to walk anywhere and everywhere we wanted, even though there are plenty of taxis available. We found the breakfasts monotonous as we stayed for about a week, but there are so many cafes close by it was not difficult to find an alternative every so often. The housekeeping staff do a great job!

This was a pleasant surprise during our trip to Viet Nam. The hotel is well appointed, excellent food and a wide variety of choices, and a wonderful breakfast buffet. And it is reasonably well situated near various attractions. We enjoyed it and found it a bit of a safe haven in an otherwise hurly burly city... Cant go wrong.

We reached Ho Chi Min and checked-in to Asian ruby 3 Hotel on 9 January 2013 for one night. The staff at the reception were very helpful and assisted us in facilating our travel arrangement. This includes assisting in our booking for Cu Chi Tunnel trip, airport transfer to changing money into Dong and answering any enquires that we had.

We had booked a superior room and we really enjoyed it. The room that we stayed offered a great view and we find it clean and spacious. We also enjoyed our breakfast which offers a buffet selection.

One aspect would be the location. it does requires abit of walking to locations like Ben Thiam market, unification palace, etc. But this allow us to explore more of the lovely HCM city.

All in all, i would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: If don't mind abit of noise, choosing a room on the higher floor with window offers a great view...

Excellent location, nice spacious and newly renovated rooms, very friendly staff, free stable wifi connection. Very good value for money, will definitively stay here again if i go back to ho chi minh. Attractions are within walking distance, taxi fare from airport should not be more than 150 000 dong max.
