We stayed here for one day in December 2015. As in most of the Vietnamese hotels we stayed at, we were offered a "welcome drink" on arrival. Generally very helpful staff. Also made a dinner reservation for us. Rooms are OK standard - not bad, not great. There is quite a bit of traffic passing by outside the hotel, so... More

I stayed in this hotel with my sister and father for 4 days. Rooms are quite small but clean. What the room lacks in size the amazing staff and breakfast more than up for. The staff was incredibly helpful and went out of their way for us several times to make our experience the best. Breakfast was fantastic every morning.... More

This hotel is upmarket and the room was good with en-suite and very clean. Staff helpful with an issue I had, nothing to do with hotel, and obliging. Full breakfast service which set us up for the day. Location near big market but eating houses bit hard to find nearby. We recommend this hotel

We had a triple shared room, very clean, and great service and very close to night markets. Only complaint however the beds were very hard especially the roll out one. Complimentary water each day along with fresh fruit to welcome guests. Good variety at breakfast.

Staff here are fantastic, from the Reception to the breakfast and cleaning staff. Would recommend this place for singles, doubles, or family. Good neighbourhood, and most is in pretty easy walking distance. Go get yourself lost in this city - it's awesome.

The hotel is located about 5 minutes walk from Ben Thanh Market and 10-15 minutes to the backpacker area. Circle K convenience store a few steps away for a quick snack or cold drink. The main sights can be walked to in 20-30 minutes or you can take a short taxi ride. There is a VinaSun supervisor outside so getting... More

Nice hotel with great service. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Worth for the money. My luggage was delayed, I reached the hotel unhappily, the hotel staff welcome me with friendly smile, drink and walk along with me to show my room location, explain to me on some of the room service. I felt much more better with the... More

My fiancé and I stayed here on two separate occasions in Sept. & Oct 2015. This hotel is clean, has very friendly staff and is in a fantastic location. The famous Ben Thanh Market, amongst many other things to do, is within walking distance. The first room we stayed in was very clean and basic, but for the price I... More

After having traveled for a full day the Ruby River was a lovely welcome to Ho Chi Minh. Although being skeptical of the 'upgrade' we were offered, due to previous reviews, it was nothing to be afraid of. In fact it turned out to be better due to the renovations happening on the front side of the hotel. The ruby... More
