Asian Ruby Luxury Hotel3.5 out of 5.0

Our hotel was in district 1 within walking distance of major sights such as the classic hotels and the Night market. The room was somewhat small but quite ok. Breakfast was fine with the usual omelette person at hand.
There is nothing ‘luxury’ about this hotel, where the wifi often doesn’t work, the rooms are not made up unless you ask for it at the desk, and the staff at reception give bad directions and are clueless about the hotel’s own services. Add staff who don’t understand English, and the frustrations become complete. In some places none of this matters because the staff are so dedicated and obliging, smiling and friendly. Alas, even that is not present at the Asian Ruby. Keep looking; you can do much better.
Nice enough downstairs, but I thought the place was rather grubby and tired in rooms and restaurant. Distinctly average as far as I’m concerned. Good location. Excellent massage and art gallery directly opposite by the way, which I highly recommend! Breakfast felt tired; breakfast staff looked tired and indifferent. Eating their breakfast behind counter ! Folding millions of napkins and setting tables for non existent diners. And the eggs man went AWOL. There must be better around. Wouldn’t be end of world if you booked here, but certainly not a Vietnam highlight.
Stayed here during a roundtrip in Vietnam, for 4 days. Had two different rooms but both on first floor. One small and one really large. Not a hotel I would have chose myself but it was the one on my roundtrip from the agency. That said it was an ok middleclass hotel. Perfect location in the city and a lovely breakfast on the top floor. Staff was ok, room clean but a rather hard bed to sleep on. Had a problem with the electricity in my room during one night, but got help quickly. One night was also VERY noicy because of a construction work just beside the hotel, impossible to sleep but next night was ok.
Fair hotel in the centre of Siagon. Wouldn't say luxury, but was comfortable. Beds comfortable and rooms clean. View was of a brick wall. Bar never seemed to be open. Breakfast was good, omelette, egg station excellent. Good range of breads, fruit, cakes, hot dishes. Coffee good and hot. Main downside was the noise from the building work nearby, seemed to go on all night, very noisy from 4am onwards. This is in the red light district. Short walk to walking street.
This is not a luxury hotel, but for the price it is a very reasonable modern comfortable hotel. The rooms are on the small size but super clean and comfortable. Breakfast has a decent choice. The bar is a tiny area crammed into reception. But the best thing about this hotel is it’s location in the heart of downtown Saigon.
The name of the hotel implies luxury but we had a small room with a small window. The furniture and bed were far from luxury and we also lacked hot water at times. The breakfast offer was very poor quality with the tea and coffee like dishwater. The reception and bar area lacked any kind of luxury.
Our room was quite small and facing an adjacent building and noisy building site. As others have reported there are major problems with the hot water supply. (ie, none) When we reported the problem we were told it would be fixed the next day. After I raised this with our tour guide, the maintenance guys were miraculously on the scene within 5 minutes. Haven't tried the breakfast yet, but not expecting great things!
Firstly I stress I would be happy to stay here again if in Ho Chi Minh city but the hotel needs to develop it's facilities before being described as 'luxury'. The rooms are clean and comfortable and despite there being a building site opposite, in what seemed to be 24 hour operation, the glazing shut out most of the noise. The market area and other attractions are within 15-20 minutes walk on the flat so the hotel is conveniently situated. While my room had ample supply of hot water (albeit with slightly erratic temperature control) my fellow travelers on the same floor and two floors below had difficulty in getting hot water. Breakfast was acceptable but the juices tasted quite watery and the range of croissants was lower than provided in similar quality hotels I used in Vietnam. The restaurant air conditioning needs replacing as it is under powered and leaking. While I understood that breakfast was available from 06.00 onwards, both breakfast and the dining room were still being prepared each day when I arrived at that time. The reception area is very large with massive comfortable armchairs yet the small bar is hidden away in the back of the reception area. With a 12.00 checkout, travelers with evening flights will need to pay to retain their rooms (in my case $40.00 for 4 hours) assuming they are available. Alternatively they have to use the restrooms on the ground floor if they wish to change before going to the airport. With the local climate this highly likely to be necessary. Unfortunately the men's restroom is very small with only one wash basin and no clothes hooks. The room information suggested there was a gym / spa room but when I enquired about using either of these rooms, to change in, the receptionist wasn't aware of any such facilities. NB massages advertised in the hotel are carried out in guests own rooms. Of course it is reasonable for the hotel to charge for retaining bedrooms. However a luxury hotel may also reasonably be expected to have suitable restrooms for guests to change in. There is a computer available for guest use on the Mezzanine floor. It will be helpful if the room information packs are updated to list meal times and describe exactly what facilities are available (Computer / Spa / Gym / Massage etc.) and where they are located. NB all the staff I met in the hotel were all very friendly and helpful.
Extremely nice friendly helpful staff. Budget priced hotel with clean rooms and excellent breakfast with rooftop views of Ho Chi Minh / Saigon Set in a great area for exploring the " high" end shopping or getting down to the traditional. Also within walking distance of a Vietnamese cooking school. Thanks to all staff
