My brother and I recently stayed at the Rex Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City for 5 days. The hotel is very grande and wonderfully appointed. Staff are extremely helpful and attentive to you needs. The only downside is the high cost of alcohol at the very nice roof top bar, and very small balcony. There are two great pools... More

We spent our last two nights in Vietnam at the Rex and opted for Executive Club Rooms. This wonderful old hotel has had extensive renovations (some still ongoing) and this was indeed a a fantastic experience.I would recommended other travellers to Option up to Executive Club as the experience is phenominal. The level of service far exceeds that of Hilton,... More

I was choosing between Park Hyatt, Caravelle and Rex Hotel and good thing I had chosen the best. I really wanted a hotel room with the view of the Saigon Opera House to greet me in the morning and tuck me to bed at night. Previously mentioned hotels either have a back or side view of the Opera House. As... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on a Rex suite overlooking the main street. My flight got very delayed before I stayed here and I was really contemplating on spending a night earlier. After staying at a relatively cheaper hotel near Ben Than Market, I called up their reservations office if I can check in early at 12PM. I was surprised... More

We enjoyed our brief stay at the Rex. Located right in the Centre, walking distance to the main shopping areas and surrounded by the non-stop buzz of mopeds, the hotel, although faded in some parts (there is a brand new wing and a much older, but more atmospheric wing) offered comfortable, large rooms. The highlight was drinks in the historic... More

The rex is a typical 5* hotel. On arrival we were upgraded free of charge to an executive suite. This consisted of a bedroom, lounge x2 bathrooms and had two televisions. We ordered room service which was great as we arrived late and enjoyed the luxurious amenities that the Rex had to offer. The breakfast was excellent, when chefs making... More

Visited this hotel last year on November,2013 room is quite big, bathroom door was broke but right after that they fixed that and sent me apologize letter with some chocolates. Near with night market, just around 10 minutes walk and located right at the centre of Ho Chi Minh City.

Just wow! This is just pure luxury! From the moment we parked outside we got the luxurious feeling. You can see that this is a high-class area of Saigon. The ground floors of The Rex and The Continental across the road have all the fancy shops; Cartier, Gucci, Prada etc. And the standard inside the hotel is no less. The... More

It was real disappointment when upon arrival I learnt that I should pay for the second person in room (my wife) - it's the first hotel with such inadequate manner even that they pretended to be 5 star hotel! Another thing that got me crazy - each time having breakfast if the time is 9:45 the staff tell that in... More
