The Rex hotel was chosen for us by our Exotissimo travel agent. It was our only 5* residence on our Vietnam holiday. I presume that they must offer a fantastic deal as it is in the centre of district 1 and it is deserving of its 5* status. We were, however, given an internal room in the rear, newer part... More

With all the nice hotels in Saigon that are available for under $50 a night, sometimes it is really nice to splurge and stay at the Rex when passing through the city. The Rex is centrally located and within walking distance or short taxi ride of just about every place a tourist would want to go in the city. The... More

Was asked to go to HCM for business trip. Since this is my company's panel hotel, I am giving it a try. I've stayed in this hotel in July, August and September for business trip. Location wise, it's 5 minutes walk to Vincom Building and shopping center. Parkson departmental store is just opposite Vincom and very convenient. If you feel... More

When we booked this hotel we opted for an upgrade. We got a suite and entrance to the executive lounge. What a Marvellous start to our travels. The room was big and the bed was comfy. The service was exceptional and everything on offer in the lounge was a real treat. Breakfast and afternoon tea, canapés and cocktails. The hotel... More

My friend and I had initially booked a very cheap hotel near the airport, but on our stop over in Singapore we decided to treat ourselves to nicer accommodation. We booked the Rex without any hassle through the Expedia app on our smart phones for a very reasonable price. On arrival at about 10pm we were both upgraded to premium... More

travelled to Ho Chi Minh City with a friend for a weeks holiday ... first time to Vietnam for both of us so we were a little uncertain where we should stay ... after some research we decided District 1 was the best place for us for the experience we were looking for. We found the Rex Hotel and booked... More

Great location and big rooms in a lovely old colonial building. However, despite moving rooms once, our room often stunk of cigarette smoke. (And no, we do not smoke.) Perhaps this was only a ventilation problem for inner rooms looking in on the courtyard (where people often seemed to be smoking), because other people we stayed with (outer room, overlooking...

Good hotel and very comfortable. Right in the centre of all sights and most restaurants. Its pricey but worth the effort. rooms big and clean. Pools a bit small and full of families at weekends. Drinks around the pool and bar are high!

Starting with inside, major upgrades to the rooms and garden roof top restaurant. Very nice! On the outside, the train station is being immediately outside the hotel. It will be noisy and dusty for the next few years. Love the hotel and the staff but the construction will potentially be a major drawback for years to come.
