We enjoyed our brief stay at the Rex. Located right in the Centre, walking distance to the main shopping areas and surrounded by the non-stop buzz of mopeds, the hotel, although faded in some parts (there is a brand new wing and a much older, but more atmospheric wing) offered comfortable, large rooms. The highlight was drinks in the historic... More

The rex is a typical 5* hotel. On arrival we were upgraded free of charge to an executive suite. This consisted of a bedroom, lounge x2 bathrooms and had two televisions. We ordered room service which was great as we arrived late and enjoyed the luxurious amenities that the Rex had to offer. The breakfast was excellent, when chefs making... More

Visited this hotel last year on November,2013 room is quite big, bathroom door was broke but right after that they fixed that and sent me apologize letter with some chocolates. Near with night market, just around 10 minutes walk and located right at the centre of Ho Chi Minh City.

Just wow! This is just pure luxury! From the moment we parked outside we got the luxurious feeling. You can see that this is a high-class area of Saigon. The ground floors of The Rex and The Continental across the road have all the fancy shops; Cartier, Gucci, Prada etc. And the standard inside the hotel is no less. The... More

It was real disappointment when upon arrival I learnt that I should pay for the second person in room (my wife) - it's the first hotel with such inadequate manner even that they pretended to be 5 star hotel! Another thing that got me crazy - each time having breakfast if the time is 9:45 the staff tell that in... More

Service is excellent, the room is spacious, however I feel that the room's layout is odd. The window is small and the room doesnt have a view, it feels dark, i felt claustrophobic. I booked a premier room. The hot and cold water at shower was difficult to mix. Its working one time then becomes very hot. Breakfast spread though... More

It's our 2nd time staying in Rex. The staff are always very service oriented and warm. We love the location and the shopping arcade at their lobby. There's a Starbucks just beside the hotel and all the shopping malls are just a stone throw away. The wifi connection is also very stable and well-connected throughout the premises. Choices for breakfast... More

We booked the Rex Suite and stayed here on 2 separate occasions (July and August) during our visit in Vietnam. Loved its location, close to restaurants, markets, sights. The service we received was fantastic. The breakfast buffet had everything you could want for breakfast. A special thank you to Tony, sales manger at Rex who really looked after us. I... More

I really wanted, and expected to like the Rex. The history, the reviews; what's not to like? and to a large degree I still am asking myself "why didn't I like it more?". Everything was very nice: service, food, location, were all very nice, but something just did not click. For the investment, I think there are better options.
