We picked Ruby River Hotel because of its location in Saigon, and were not disappointed on that front. The staff were all very helpful with directions to various places of interest and spoke very good English. The room was very well equipped and had excellent soundproofing glazing, a bonus in a busy, noisy city like Saigon. There is a shortage of restaurants in the immediate vicinity but there are plenty of higher end restaurants within a 15 min. walk. In the opposite direction, about 15-20 min. walk, there are plenty of very good Eastern And Western eateries in the so called "backpackers" area which offer a very good choice of food at very good prices.
The main negative for us with the Ruby River Hotel was the breakfast which was very much geared to the Eastern palate, for example, Rice gruel and Pigs tail with red beans. The western options were there but very limited.
