Overall we’ve had a decent stay at this hotel. The breakfast was good. The staff really could be friendlier I’d say and more helpful, had to push to get want we needed. But this didn’t spoil our stay. We got use to a super service...More

The Rex is famous for the large rooftop bar. Still in operation with a 20% discount happy hour from about 5 - 7pm. This is the place where the press hung out during the American War, as they call it, in the 60s and 70s....More

Yes you can but it is a lot cheaper to get a cab! The cab rank is right outside departures, to the left. Stick with Vinasun or Maling (?). Always ask that they put the meter on. But bothered companies were fine. Have fun!
