NIce stop for a beer

Came to Rex hotel to take a look because of the history behind it during the war and it being a place the journalists were based. We had a lovely Saigon beer on the roof top and surveyed the sights of Ho Ch Min City.

Good View

Saw lots of news reports from here during the war. Now it's just a nice rooftop bar with good views - of the former CIA Station (from which the helicopters took off at Saigon fell), of the pedestrian street (including HCM statue below) and of the Saigon skyline. Worth visiting for the vicarious nostalgia.

Pricey but a must-see
Feb 2020
After a trip to the Cu Chi tunnels we cleaned ourselves up for a cocktail at this historic bar, grabbing a table on the balcony with a great view down on the square. Yes it is pricey for Vietnam, so we decided to go all in for the jumbo Mojito which was very good! Great staff, and the live music was also great, highly recommended (if you're not keeping an eye on costs).

Why not? You're worth it!!

We were exploring Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon on our first night and stopped here for a cocktail overlooking the city's main pedestrianised Street. Well worth it.

From here you have a wonderful view of the colourful new skyscrapers, the city hall and the statue of good ol' uncle Ho.

Perhaps the rooftop bar has lost a little of it colonial feel but still a great vantage point. Happy hour (2 for 1) until 7.00pm but cocktails are reasonably priced by western standards in any event.

I would recommend this bar and also that at the Hotel Majestic, which overlooks the river.

A historic place

Overpriced, but a Place you have to attend. As aNorwegian I cannot complain paying a beer the same price as at home. Good atmosphere - fantastic view at night time. good music.

We came here for cocktails after doing the Chi Chi tunnels, so we were a bit dirty and probably not dressed for the occassion. We returned another night and enjoyed the views and cocktails more

Historic Location

We visited in the middle of the afternoon just to say we walked were news correspondents walked in the 60's. Had a drink and tried to imagine seeing Cronkite or Brinkley. Great view.

Poor service, expensive, but excellent view

From the rooftop you have an excellent view across downtown, but that’s about it. Cocktails are about 30 percent more expensive than in other comparable locations in the area and not as good. Service is slow.

Don’t go

Poor choice for New Year’s eve dinner. We had to prepay using a bank wire of $200 USD per person. We were a family of 7 ppl who were very disappointed.
The food was vile. Coupons were given to each of us for a half portion of lobster. Here were three bites in each. The beef was an 1/8 inch thick. With a bone and two inch square.
The salads and sushi buffet was minimal. Not worth the money.

Not cheap but a must see in the City. Good cocktail list and friendly staff who know the list inside out. A band plays later and the rooftop is quite a cool place to be on your trip.
