“Okay Basic Hotel”
Reviewed 14 January 2012

We spent 2 nights in this hotel, once after our arrival from the USA and once before flying to Hanoi in late October 2011. The room was clean but dark abd without much of a view even though it was a Deluxe room. It seemed to be a popular tourist hotel and had a good central location. The service and breakfast were above average for Saigon but not exceptional. We felt the room was overpriced for the area. We spent our last night in a different hotel down the street only because we were able to cancel with the Asia Ruby 1 and the grand opening of the higher star hotel just down the street was at 50 % discount. Overal the Ruby was a disappointment for the price, but not terrible.

Room Tip: Get a high floor room

The Asian Ruby 1 Hotel was everything we needed in a city hotel - comfortable, clean, well located. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. When we were awaiting a package from Hoi An, they called to confirm that it had been sent. They even delivered a scale to our room so we could check the weight of our luggage. We enjoyed breakfast every morning in the top floor restaurant. The gentleman at the omelet station always recognized me and promptly prepared my omelet.

The only downside was construction in the basement level, which we could hear from our third floor room. But it didn't start until after 8am and, by that time, we needed to be up anyway.

I would definitely recommend the Asian Ruby 1 Hotel to anyone visiting HCMC!

Travelled with family (parents in 60s) so opted for a bit of comfort. This hotel was really good for its rates. Staff were friendly and helped us with booking tours, giving advice about taxi prices, how to get to airport, where food and shopping areas were. We stayed in the Ruby suite (room looked as in pictures by Mikojosh) taking advantage of their 33% off for 4 nights deal.
Breakfast was delicious each morning - with more than enough variety. We managed to get airport transfer complimentary one way - just make sure you arrange all of this in advance.
AS for location, its surrounded by a number of likely similar hotels, the street it is on is fairly quiet, My Spa is just across the road and there are quite a few places to eat just around the corner - only issue we had was trying to find a Vietnamese restaurant (the area around is full of a number of other types). Location is an easy 5 minute walk to the main shopping areas. Taxis to Ben thanh markets, the remembrance museum, basically anything in that area is ~30000-40000; just remember to haggle (again a tip from the restaurant), starting prices we faced were often ten times this amount!!
We'll definitely be staying here again on our next trip to Vietnam

The room was fine, a small complaint would be that we could hear the conversations of people behind the wall, but other than that - it was ok. The breakfast less than impressive, with limited choice and a very spartan breakfast room. Good location. Staff polite but without that extra care that would make our stay remarkable.
