A great hotel right in the centre of Saigon (the centre of Ho Chi Minh City still uses the name Saigon). It is in a really very central location with plenty of malls, shops, museums and restaurants to go to, most within walking distance or a short taxi ride. The food in the hotel was not outstanding, but the service... More

I would recommend Rex Hotel, Ho Chi Minh to any visitors looking for a relaxing getaway amongst the Saigon hustle and bustle. The staff at Rex Hotel were friendly and efficient. The room was clean and they generously upgraded us for free. The hotel is conveniently located in District 1 - and is just a short walk from markets and... More

An old world but as modern as it's five star competitors hotel in the heart of the city planned so well by the French in the 19th century, offering tree lined wide avenues. The hotel has maintained its old world charm with totally modern rooms with comfortable beds, great air conditioning in a very warm climate and sere of the... More

Thought I would try the Rex this time given it's location and history. This is a traditional Hotel with some lovely areas especially the pool and rooftop bar. I stayed in the executive wing for the added benefits of late checkout, laundry and lounge benefits. The stay was faultless as the hotel has really friendly and helpful staff. The only... More

Read reviews in guide books and popped into roof top bar for a drink after dinner. Looking forward to great views over the city but currently looking over a building site. So noisy and lifeless (and v expensive), that decided to go elsewhere for a drink and watch the world go by.

This was my first stay in Ho Chi Minh City, but my husband makes the Rex his home here when on business trips. The room was beautifully appointed and the staff very helpful and accommodating. The breakfast buffet is beautiful and has a little of everything. Easy walking to all the sights and shopping.

We stayed here for three nights in two executive Governor suites, the rooms are very well appointed comfortable and luxurious. What made our stay very memorable was the over whelming friendliness off the driver from the airport, to the driver around town, the young lady in the executive lounge and the staff in the restaurants. Nothing was too much trouble... More

We stayed at the Rex Hotel for 3 days on our first trip to Vietnam. We booked a Governor Suite for the balcony/terrace and had no access to it. Agoda falsely advertised this and we brought it to the attention of Rex Hotel Reception who were going to follow it up. The room was huge and more than we needed.... More

This is a grand dame in Ho Chi Minh City. An older property which holds a fascinating history (journalists used to congregate here during the war and often used as a place of refuge). Beautiful old rooms with character. If you want this hotel renovated, stay at home and go to the nearest Holiday Inn. Clean, fresh, sunny, with a... More
