The Rex has an incredibly convenient central location. The lobby (connected to an upscale shopping arcade) is renovated in a sleek modern style which doesn't really match the rest of the ambiance and can give a false impression at first. The rest of the decor is far more traditional and undeniably charming even if some areas are a bit over the top (e.g. the breakfast restaurant)! Two small swimming pools on the top floor provide some relief from the sweltering heat and the breakfast spread is surprisingly pleasant and delicious. The service is courteous and professional. A small complaint - our room was right under the terrace bar and we could hear the loud music at night before going to sleep. However, the music was always promptly shut off at 11pm and there were no further problems. Overall it is a great base from which to explore Saigon.
