This hotel was very well appointed and the staff very helpful. Amazing views from the roof and very clean. Well located with good shopping nearby. Breakfast selection was very wide suiting visitors from many countries. Would love to come back and stay for longer.

The Rex is one of the hotels that was used during the war by all the news media people and the bar on the roof is where the US would give daily briefings also known as the 5 o clock follies. Great food and really great rooms

Hotel is really 5 star value , it had relatively large scale in Ho Chi Minh city, particularly hotel has a long history and well known. The hotel's location in the heart of District 1, with busy streets and somewhat uncomfortable about some noise when the city has subway construction projects nearby . Hotels lobby decorated very beautifully, the room... More

We stayed here 5 nights in June 2015, 3rd floor in new wing. Room was fantastic.The staff were excellent and helped us to understand not to go out with our jewellery on due to certain incidents. We also enjoyed delicious meals here and surrounding restaurants. Exchange rate was good, can't speak highly enough about the help we received at this... More

Was very well received and checked in approx 10 in the morning. Normal check-in is 14:00. But due to the fact that I had booked two weeks, I got the room immediately, no extra charge. And that was really nice after travelling all the way from Norway. However, had to pay half a day for my check-out at 18:00 the... More

The quiant little hotel we knew before, has undergone a massive transformation turning it into a 5 star hotel in modern Ho Chi Minh city. Check-in was a breeze, the efficient front office staff, fluent in English, was able to assist us in procuring our room as we arrived early in the morning. We did not have to wait. As... More

The building is very vintage, old and nice. It's located centrally at the city. On the ground floor, there are many branded shops like Rolex, Chanel, Cartier, Polo, Burberry etc. There is also a roof top bar that serve drinks and food. The lobby area is huge and lobby lounge is nice. Also there is a restaurant at ground floor... More
