The Ruby True Hotel was my last stop on a five-week adventure in southeast Asia, and the place was enchanting, to say the least, a memorable part of my overall experience in Myanmar. The manager and his able staff were so attentive and supportive, and helped with such things as booking an airline ticket back to Yangon and arranging for...

We stayed here for 2nights and it was amazing. The traditionally designed rooms were spacious, clean and well maintained. The staff were very accommodating and more than willing to assist us in anything (booking for massage, restaurant, car, etc). The property has a big garden (which is beautifully set up as a breakfast and dinner area) and is away from...

This hotel is situated about a ten min walk from the main part of new Bagan. This isn't a major issue as most tourists rent e-bike (electronic moped) to travel around new Bagan, old Bagan and nyuang-u. Wah wah was fantastic, she gave us a very warm welcome, despite arriving at 5am from a night bus from Yangon. We had...

When faced with the choice of where to stay in Bagan, choose authentic, economical Ruby True Hotel. Why spend a ton of money on hotels that haven't even figured out what luxurious means yet? Want a slice of the real Myanmar? Don't want to pay an arm and a leg for decent food and lodging! Be forewarned that is lies...

My family's stay at Ruby True will always be a memorable one. Upon first glance, the hotel isn't the most modern and the rooms are quite basic, but Wah Wah and the rest of the staff at Ruby True make you easily overlook its outdatedness. A member of our party had food poisoning when we arrived and staff at the...

We stayed here for a night, but in all of my travels, I've never met a staff that was so helpful, particularly Wawa. We were waiting for our room at The Blue Bird next door and needed a place to stay for the night, so figured the Ruby True was a perfect option since it's literally next door. Wawa was...

We chose this hotel on the basis of many positive TA reviews and on the whole we were not disappointed. The property may not suit everyone, for whilst the bedroom was spacious, the bathroom was small and in need of renovation, and the lighting was somewhat eccentric, so 'homely' is perhaps an apt description. The welcome and farewell we received...
