We were fortunate enough to visit the Rex several years ago when the Roof Top Bar was really reminiscent of the "Five O'Clock Follies" however, were disappointed this time around as significant changes have taken place. The entrance to the hotel is now blocked off and new entrances are now to the side of the building. Part of the roof... More

We decided to stay at the Rex for its historical significance as the site of the Five O'clock Folies - daily press briefings about the progress of the Vietnam War- and we're pleasantly surprised to find a stylish, well- run, friendly hotel with attentive staff and great location. We opted for a room in the old wing with a balcony... More

Just fantastic, we took a deluxe package with pick up from Airport, and was well worth it, the room in the new executive wing was perfect , we have never seen housekeeping so good in Asia ( except Four Seasons at 10 times the price). Coctails were great and breakfast was a special treat with so many choices.Location, location,Location can't... More

My wife and I stayed here over Christmas, the hotel is located in district 1, surrounded by shopping. It was a little crazy at Christmas time and going out at night on the streets was hard work, I would imagine it would be a little more pleasant during normal periods. The hotel was clean and well appointed, I was very... More

Excellent, Staff are great and the location is perfect. Really good deal on the web site too. The pool is nice and the Gym better than most hotels by a long way. Good selection of Western TV and free wifi everywhere with good speed. Skype was no problem to use.

I've stayed in most of the best hotels in district 1 but this was the best experience that I had. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was superb. Staff gave a warm welcome and the service was very good.

We had a good stay at Rex. It's an historic media hotel and I loved the old charm detail. I said many times about how cool the hotel was. The living wall in the centre of the hotel is absolutely beautiful! Our room was really cute. It felt old but in a cool way. The bed was really comfortable and... More

The hotel is located in the CBD shopping area, good restaurants are within reach, very convenient. Hotel lobby is grandeur house with warm receptionists with big smile. We ordered a suite, is oriental setting but very spacious has a longish small balcony. We can hear traffic and music from the street, but is fun and energize. I suggest you order... More

What a disappointment for the last night of a great holiday in Vietnam. An unpleasant experience from first entering to leaving. I do not recall seeing one smile from the staff during our stay. The hotel is old and is currently undergoing refurbishment. So please be very careful with what room you are given. We were shown to a room... More
