“Great price, good food, convenient to airport and train station.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile

This is a four star hotel at a one star hotel price. We paid US$50 and this included buffet breakfast. We chose it because it's 5 minutes from the train station and also 15 minutes to the airport. Highly recommended if you are catching the train. Whilst rooms are smoke free my only complaint is that smoking is allowed in public areas. There is a gaming room (slots, roulette etc) but you'll need a gas mask to go in there.

This hotel was great the staff were so friendly and helpful. They provided us with an upgrade on arrival as we were staying for 5 nights. Location is ok the street is a bit away from the tourist area but cost 2euro in a taxi. Rooms were cleaned daily even if we went out late. Great pool and overall lovely experience and pleasant stay

I was stay in Ramana Hotel for many times. They had a great rooms and good service. They have halal food also, if you are a moslem, dont no worries at all when stayed in here. Wifi access are free in every corner. They accept so many foreign currencies like USD, SGD, AUD, JPY and so on.
This hotel takes about 20-30 minutes from airport. Be ware with random taxi, use Mai-Linh or Vinasun.

We have stay at 3 nights at Ramana Hotel Saigon and we have adore our stay. Everything is completed. Smiling and pleasant staff, big clean room and with a beautiful decoration, an impeccable service, an outdoor correct and pleasant swimming pool. This hotel is better that several hotels posting 5 stars.

We shall return here it is certain. We recommend strongly this hotel.

Room Tip: We had the opportunity to have a room has the floor 9.

I moved from a cheap-ish but perfectly fine accommodations in Bui Vien, District 3 to Ramana Hotel, District 1 for the final 2 nights of my stay in Saigon - Because I wanted to swim.
The hotel was predictable, all the amenities you would expect from a four star establishment, there wasn't much outside the hotel though so I found myself alternating between the pool and the cable TV.
The breakfast buffet was adequate but not anything special, the staff offered & brought me coffee then later charged it to my room ?
It was mainly full of Russian salesmen on a conference and Chinese businessmen. Also, they smoke inside public areas of the hotel which I didn't appreciate. It was OK, the staff were great but overall, everything you would expect for the price, nothing more.

Room Tip: The pool is on the 5th floor.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights, in Feb when passing through Ho Chi Min.

Room was ok, nicely decorated, shower was a bit average, reception staff were ok.

Pool area looked good, didn't use it, but looked the part, Wi-Fi was sluggish to be kind. Didn't have breakfast as it was quite pricey, roome service seemed well priced though.

The annoying thing was the $20 casino voucher, you can only use it on slot machines, staff couldn't help us much, so we left, but the casino looked pretty naff.
