Booked directly on the hotel's website and had a 4 night special which gave you discounts on tours and a free drop off service to the airport. All the staff was extremely friendly and thoughtful, it was my birthday on one of the nights and all of them wished me and even gave me chocolate as a gift! Room was bright, clean and comfortable, wifi signal was strong. Breakfast selection changes day to day so you don't get bored even if you stay for a few days.

We stayed at the Ruby River for 3 nights last week.
Hotel was very clean and nice. The staff was great and greeted us each time with a massive, friendly smile. Even the porter! In general the hotel felt safe and the staff was very caring and helpful.
Free WiFi!
They serve very filling Asian breakfast with limited western choice (toast and jam, eggs and fruit).

Stayed 2 nights in Sep 2013.

Location is ok. Walkable distance to Ben Thanh market. On the quieter side of town, but being Ho Chi Minh city, this doesn't mean quiet quiet.

Rooms are clean and very comfortable for this price range, hence offers very good value for money. Breakfast range is not huge, but sufficient to get the day going.

Staff are friendly and adequately professional.

No faults really. If you want a comfortable stay at a boutique style hotel in a not overly busy but still within walking distance of the main attractions, this one offers very good value for the money.

This hotel is about 30 minutes by taxi from the airport and about a 10 minute walk to both the Ben Than Market and the upmarket shops e.g. Chanel. The hotel room was very clean, the staff were all very friendly and spoke good English. The breakfast had a small western selection, a large Asian selection with eggs cooked on request and a small amount of fresh fruit. They offered a concierge service to grab you a cab and recommended only two cab companies for their guests. We only forgot this once and saw the taxi meter jump up from 40 VND straight to 100 VND. Luckily we saw this and called him on it and he stopped the cab and we got out and grabbed another cab - from the right company this time. We loved this location as we were within walking distance to shopping and sightseeing and a short taxi ride to good restaurant food.

My husband and I were impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the concierge and check-in staff upon arrival at the Ruby River Hotel. We asked for a quiet room and was allocated a room on the 8th floor and did not hear any noise or banging doors! Overall, the room wasn't huge but it was comfortable and has everything you require. A mild smell from the bathroom was present. Breakfast was served next to the reception in a bright and airy environment. The range of food provided was ample, with both Western and Vietnamese choices. The breakfast room was bright and kept tidy.

Check in and check out were processed quickly and smoothly, with no hassles. The hotel was a short walk to Banh Thanh Market, where we enjoyed nice seafood and night market shopping - need to bargain! Saigon Square is also close by to the hotel, where you can pick up reasonably-priced clothes.

Our day in HCMC was enjoyable although we were mindful that a number of the hotel staff reminded us several times to be extra careful of our personal belongings, ie hand bag, camera, and mobile phone. The high number of motor bikes whizzing past was rather daunting when trying to cross the road! Drivers and motor bike riders seem to observe their own road rules while as a pedestrian it was rather scary!

Room Tip: High floor - 8th floor was nice and quiet.

This is my first trip to Ho Chi Minh & this is the first hotel recommended by my cousin. While I walked in to the hotel their hospitality is very very good, polite,courtesy, helpful & friendly. When we are waiting for excursion van or check in the bellboy or the staff automatically serve us drink at lobby.Everytime when we go out the staff keep telling us becareful for pickpocket & watchout your bag & phone.The room was very clean & the bed so comfortable, wifi was very fast too. But the water shower temperature not consistent, sometimes cold becomes hot & vice versa. Location was great, it just walking distance to Ben Thanh Market that convenient for shopping & food stalls. You even can walk to the Rembrant Museum & Bitexco Building too. This hotel price is cheap & included breakfast for 2.

Room Tip: Everything is good
