The Rex Hotel is in a fantastic location right in front of Ho Chi Minh City Hall and the plaza featuring the statue of Ho Chi Minh. The location is very central and we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. We stayed on the executive floor which offered a delicious breakfast every morning served by a very... More

From the moment you enter the lobby, you can sense that this property has history. Very efficient check in staff which speak excellent English. For I first stay, I was lucky enough to be upgraded to the Governor Suite and for my second stay I booked into the Rex Suite. Both the rooms were well appointed and had more than... More

The Rex Hotel is etched into Saigon's history. Its famous rooftop bar overlooks a popular pedestrian thoroughfare so, especially of an evening, is an excellent spot for taking the pulse of the city. The 2008 renovations brought this ageing hotel back up to scratch. Rooms are well equipped, with fine bathrooms. The guest breakfast on the fifth floor offers a... More

Lovely hotel. Greeted by attentive and mature consierge who directed us to the appropriate lift. Cocktails are not cheap in comparison to surrounding hotels but the view was particularly special. Nice for a special evening. Need to dress smart casual at least.

We asked to stay at the rooftop swimming pool while waiting for our airport transfer and we paid the extra fee for it. Just after the transaction was concluded a terrible noise started and after five minutes it was so unbearable we had to literally run away. The point I am making is not about the money or the location... More

This is definitely NOT a 5 stars Hotel. The manager was so rude. There was a lack of politeness and consideration. It's trading off a past history sadly. The hotel feels faded and lacklustre. It doesn't have the service and professionalism you would expect from a 5 stars, big hotel. The alarm from the previous guests went off at 2am... More

We were on a 3 week tour of Vietnam staying at 3 and sometimes 4 star hotels. We decided to splash out for 1 night at the Rex in HCMC. In fact the price was very reasonable at around $100 plus taxes especially for what you get. The hotel is smart yet friendly but no ostentatious or flashy – you... More

I stayed at the Rex Hotel in HCMC recently and I must say this would have to be one of the best hotels in Vietnam. From the time you arrive until the time you leave, everyone is just so friendly. I had an Grosvenor Suite in the West Wing (this is the newer part of the hotel) which was a... More

Don't know what all the fuss is about the noise as we haven't found this to be the case. We are a family with 2 boys (aged 8 and 10) and booked a king and twin interconnecting room in the west wing. The rooms are beautifully furnished and bathrooms are quite large. Free wifi is great and the breakfast buffet... More
