I stayed here for a few days during a short trip in Vietnam. Initially the first room I was given wasn't great, so I requested a better room - they showed me two more and I chose a room in the newly refurbished part of the hotel. The room was nice, 3-4star western standards. It was a good size, with... More

The hotel is nice and meets high standards. The breakfast buffet is decent and the gym is quite nice too! The staff could be a little more helpful and customer service oriented. That would have made my stay better, but all in all very great!

My husband & I stayed here for 3 nights and enjoyed ourselves very much. The room was very large and comfortable. The only problem was the construction works directly outside and which took place predominantly during the night when we tried to sleep. My husband is a light sleeper & this bothered him. On the plus side, the breakfast was... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Rex in a Superior Room and would certainly recommend this hotel, especially if you enjoy colonial style hotels. The hotel has been modernized and has all the 5 star amenities with one slight exception. This hotel is in an upmarket area and has numerous high end stores (Burberry, Cartier, etc.) in the arcade plus... More

What a strange experience. It started with check in which took nearly 45 minutes. I felt like Alice in Wonderland entering an alternate reality. Was this a government-run hotel? The whole check in experience seemed rather bizarre considering we’d been traveling for a month in Vietnam at 4-5 star hotels and had never encountered such a cold, rude unwelcoming place.... More

The hotel is very well located in Central District 1, in the city. Every thing is in the walking distance. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable but a bit old. We stayed there for seven nights and were very comfortable. The staff here is also very nice and helpful. As we were pure vegetarians the breakfast staff saw to... More

Only stayed for one night while travelling from Phu Quoc to the Mekong Delta. We are so pleased that we stayed here. Had a Governors suite for the night, it was absolutely fantastic, worth every penny. View's from the roof top bar in the evening are unbelievable. Helpfulness from all of the staff was exceptional, nothing was too much trouble... More

On ground of hotel, there are lots of high fashion brands; Prada, Ferragamo, Burberry, Cartier, etc. (Just to confirm you are really in CBD) Hotel used to be French garage and... More

It may seem like an odd way to title a review but the roadworks outside the Rex are huge and are going to be there for several years as the Vietnamese construct their first metro. If this stops you going there then you are missing out on a treat.The hotel is a proper five star. The rooms are excellent, I... More
