The hotel is an old dog that's being upgraded.As a result construction work noise affects many rooms and there is nothing that can be done about it. Staff are quite friendly but service is mediocre and a bit commie style. The hotel appears to be part of a government chain. Outlet prices are insane-it's hard to comprehend that you are... More

I agree with all reviews here. Great location, spacious and comfortable room, plentiful breakfast even though not that exquisite... Overall, definitely an hotel with character that I recommend. But how come there is no minimal isolation in the windows! Got a room with a view on the park/City Hall, 3rd floor, and it was not always pleasant but it was... More

We stayed at the Rex for five nights this July. We were treated very respectfully in many situations. The service at breakfast is great, the food is very good. Many choices of Vietnamese food. We had two rooms, both were very spacious and clean. The general manager thanked us at the end of our stay and was very gracious.

Not a great start to the stay. After contacting reception they gave us another room in the new wing which was... More

Where to stay for my four night stay in Ho Chi Min was a difficult decision as there are so many lovely hotels. The Rex hotel ticked a lot of the boxes in regards to location, roof top bar, pool , rooms etc and I was not disappointed . The upgrade to a beautiful suite on arrival was a great... More
