Loved the Rex overall, well equiped gym, in fact one of the best i've seen in a hotel. Pools are ok but the lounges by the pools are in need of replacement and there are too few of them. The upstairs sun area by the pool looks like a junk yard, so some attention is needed. Lower pool water cleanliness... More

The historic Rex hotel is a great place to stay in Ho Chi Minh City. Located just by the main boulevard and a few minutes' walk to major attractions like the Ben Thanh Market, War Remnants Museum and Reunification Palace. Great breakfast with both Western and Asian dishes, offering both indoor and outdoor seating. There are 2 pools on the... More

If you are in Saigon and want to reflect on where Americans "hung out" during the Vietnam War, go to the rooftop bar of the Rex. It's iconic and offers a great view of the city. A beer cost a bit less than $7 but the seats next to the railing overlooking the streets below make the cost well worth... More

We stayed here for a couple of days during the Tet holiday. The hotel is one of the oldest in the city. It is very nice, with large clean and comfortable rooms. The bed was extremely comfortable. The washroom had a beautiful tub and separate shower with rain head. The breakfast buffet was huge, with a lot of choices, both... More

Rooms are excellent, except be aware that if you want an external facing one you need to make sure to book one of the more expensive rooms. Otherwise you get one facing the inner courtyard of nothingness. Which is fine, but I like a window with a view. It's not clear on their website about this (although this might have... More
