My wife and I spent 2 nights at the Rex on the back-end of a 2 week holiday in Vietnam. Perfectly located in the centre of District 1, adjacent to the town hall, the minute you enter the hotel lobby you get a sense of its importance and history. We were initially allocated a basic room without view in the... More

My 12 year old son and I stayed here for 3 nights. The service is impeccable. The concierge arranged for a private tour of Cu Chi Tunnels which was great to avoid the crowds. The guide was very knowledgable and spoke wonderful english. The room was on 4th floor with a balcony overlooking the street. The room was very spacious... More

It was quite by chance that I discovered the rooftop garden of the Rex Hotel in HCM. As you exit onto the rooftop, you are welcomed by the stunning colonial decor and authentic furnishings from the period. You really feel as if you are taking a step back to pre-1953. The real skill of the hotel owners however is that... More

I've spent 3 nights at the REX. While the room is comfortable, the service is inconsistent and average, I found the hotel extremely hot. Seems that they have AC just in the rooms. The pool was closed and the famous bar on the rooftop was half closed. And to make it a bad experience I was woke up with works... More

This was the first time to Vietnam and chose this hotel which has been recommended by my colleague. It is a classic hotel, high quality, good amenities and excellent service. My room was nice with comfy bed. The location is great and close to many places, just walking distance. The staffs are very helpful and friendly. Overall, I enjoyed my... More

Stayed at the Rex from 7-10 Mar in a Premium Room in the New Wing. Check in was very friendly and efficient, staff always friendly and a great buffet breakfast - really enjoyed breakfast on the rooftop watching the city wake up in the morning!! The Hotel has an interesting history with some great old photo's on display around the... More

For my first visit to Saigon, i chose the Rex because, although the are many excellent hotels in this city, the Rex has history. A beautifully restored structure, built in the colonial period, this hotel is 5 stars plus at every level and everyplace. The suite was huge and stunning, the personal service and feeling that everyone on staff really... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Rex Hotel very much. We were in room 470 which is newly refurbished, modern, large and very quiet. The breakfast had may choices and the food was high quality. We enjoyed the vibe in the lobby which was always crowded. The room had both a tub and a shower, an internet plug in and... More

We were informed via sign at the elevators that the hotel pool on the 5th floor was closed for approximately one month while it underwent renovations. We were told to use the pool on the 6th floor (roof-top) instead. Well, little did we know the local public can use this pool by paying a fee of approx. $US8.00 per person.... More

I stayed at the Rex for 11 nights on a business trip. I opted for a suite as it didn't cost much more than a regular room. I was glad that I did as it gave me a lot more space, welcome on a long stay. The room was very good, large comfortable bed, very good bathroom. No problem with... More
