Good hotel for a short stay

Good location - right next to Ben Than Market
Asian Ruby hotel is a pleasant, clean hotel. Good location - within walking distance to most things. There is a great french cafe round the corner which serves croissants! One tip - they offer airport transfer when you book it, but this costs 20 dollars and a taxi from the airport only costs 7 dollars. Taxis are easy to get from the airport so it is a waste of money to order airport transfer.

Great location but average room and bad aircon

- friendly staff - average breakfast - aircon in room didn't really work - room was small, but it overall it was good value for what we paid

Great hotel, excellent staff,especially the boys,

rooms are a good size & most comfortable, all one could need
Excellent hotel, staff are friendly, boys most helpful but min english. Great location, Only one block from money changers, markets & a short taxi trip to the eating houses of Pham Nau Lao, a nice walk to the post office, old church, great restuarant "Coffee Mai" & to the big department store/supermarket "Parkson". Highly recommend.

Good Location and service with a smile

Good location and great sized bathroom
The staff at this hotel are efficient and friendly. The location is quite convenient and within walking distance of most major Saigon attractions such as the night markets. The bathroom is a great size and the beds are comfortable. They could improve on the breakfast as there was not much variety.

i booked this hotel via agoda because of good reviews from former guesses, and i found that this hotel fulfill my expection. i had been to hanoi before, so i already know the typical of small hotel in vietnam. asian ruby 2 is really nice, clean and my room had a wide window. there are refrigerator, 2 bottles of free water, water boiler etc in room, but unfortunately no free coffee/tea served, but it's ok for me. over all, the location is the best value of asian ruby 2, from here all main attractions of hochiminh are within walking distance. breakfast is standard for 3 star hotel, but i like the fruits, tropical fruits.
Restaurant Tip: For moslem, there is a halal restaurant close to the hotel. Out from hotel you go left, then before park (which is only 1 minute walking) turn right and there it is 2 or 3 shops only from there

nice small hotel

very nice location
they accomodated us even when we arrived late about 1 am. the room was small but everything worked. the staff could speak good english and were very trustworthy. we left all our valuables in the room, and even when they clean the room, nothing was lost.

Clean, tidy, and good location near Ben Thant

It is very close to Ben Thanh Market.
The room is just nice for me, husband and baby but got mosquito in the room.

lovely hotel but lack of smile

near the ben tanh
at our first stay, they are very welcome and helpful. the superior room is full booked, so they give us the deluxe room. the room is very clean, and quite good. then we went to cambodia and the next day we went to this hotel again. this time, there are some staff that didn't service us as great as the first time. except one particular person, but his name is hard to mention. he is very helpful and kind. overall, the room (even the superior) is clean, tidy, and good. great location, it near the ben tanh market.
Shopping Tip: if you want to bargain in the ben tanh market, you should cut it more than half price. if you want to make sure, there is a part in the market that sell in fixed price.
