I would have given this hotel a higher rating if not for the breakfast. Really poor selection on offer. But luckily there are plenty of local alternate breakfast options available nearby. Front desk and concierge are very very friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable if a little small. Close to markets and also walking distance to Saigon Centre Air...

Hotel staff was excellent and rooms were clean and neat. Breakfast was okay. Try and get a room higher up , we were on the 8th Floor which helped with...

Stayed here two nights room very clean and the biggest bed I have ever seen. Nice clean bathroom with Jacuzzi bath. Breakfast poor not much variety and coffee not good. Staff helpful. Good location. Downside is no bar, restaurant or swimming pool which would have been nice after a day sightseeing.

We were very satisfied with our 3N stay at the Ruby River Hotel. The building is a little old and tired but that is more than made up for with friendly and helpful staff. Its location was a real positive being a short walk to several attractions especially the (Touristy) Market. The only area that could be improved was the...

We stayed 3 nights here and were made to feel welcome by friendly faces...nothing was too much trouble although the hotel does not have a bar. It was immaculate with a good choice for breakfast. The Ruby is about 5 mins wall from the main market and restaurants and street food

Modern, clean hotel, great central location close to night market and restaurants. Adequate buffet breakfast, good service. Only minus point - our safe was broken and only the last evening it appeared to be a simple matter of batteries. In short - we will visit again.

The hotel is well located near all the major attractions. The rooms are spacious and the bathroom is luxurious, complete with a spa bath! The staff were very hospitable. There is ample variety of dishes and fruit for breakfast, with a great view from the 9th floor.
