I honestly don't know how this place can look so different from the pictures on internet. the bedrooms are old, dirty, dusty, small. in our one, we had a big old telly, like in the 80's, the bed was ok, or at least the bed sheets seemed to be clean, the bathroom extremely small and we couldn't dare to touch...

Let me start by stating that I do a lot of travelling for work. Also the Rex is looking tired. Having said that when you have been working all day after a long drive what you don't need is problems at your hotel. So when you check in late and have not had anything to eat all day the last... More

We stayed here last weekend & trust me the photos that the Agoda website showed of this place, are very misleading. The rooms I would liken to something in a housing commission & are very old & dated indeed. The lifts are just unacceptable for a 3.5 star hotel & the corridors smelt of death.We stayed a Saturday night &... More

Oh dear, The rex hotel is getting very tired! Our recent stay here was only 'just ok' the bed was comfy enough but the room smelt very musty and was quite dark and dimly lit. The light didn't work, the TV was very very old and needed replacing, the bathroom door didn't even shut from the swell of the door,... More

We received the most friendliest welcome on check in and proceeded to our rooms. Both king and although as already stated, a little tired but very clean and comfortable. The tariff , of $263 for a single and $293 for a double included a full buffet breakfast with a very good selection and great restaurant staff. A pre dinner drink... More

I stayed for Saturday night and really enjoyed my sleep. The king beds are made with 2 single beds pushed together, with the added comfort of a king-sized feather bed on top. So you can request for 2 single beds if need be... I was travelling alone so sleeping right in the middle and it felt like I was on... More
