We stayed in the Rex Hotel while on a business meeting. The location of the hotel is ideal and most of the tourist attractions are quite nearby. The staff are very friendly and eager to help in directing you to places of interest nearby. The only snag is that some have problems with the English language. We were upgraded from a Deluxe to Premium room on the 5th Floor on arrival at no extra costs. The room was spacious with the usual large LCD TV, attached bathroom with a shower room and long bath. Toiletries include tooth brush apart from the soap, shower gels, etc. Bath towels are changed daily at request and are clean. We had 2 large beds, with comfortable mattress and pillows. There is a room safe and free coffee making facilities. Noise is not a problem and you can be assured of a quiet night's sleep. Morning breakfast is at the Cung Dinh Restaurant. Good selection of both eastern and western food, The eastern choices vary from day to day and there is plenty to choose. Local fruits are aplenty and you can have a selection of fresh fruit juices. The famed Beng Thang bazaar is just about 15-20 min walk but the weather in the late morning onwards can be very hot. A park is opposite the hotel. Other bearby attractions include the Opera house, Notre Dame church and the central post office. All in an enjoyable stay but the rates are a bit pricey.
