“Good location”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

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.

Very luxury hotel with extremely good location. Most of the attractions are around the hotel.

Booked a private tour with hotel, although it's a bit on the high side. But i think it's still worth the price as you will not any worries of any scams during the tour.

Overall, it's worth to stay here if it's the first visit to Ho Chi Minh City. "You will not get lost."

Room Tip: It's worth to get a suite with the view of the street.

I loved the location. The Rex is located in the best part of HCMC and the park just outside the hotels door is beatyful. The Rex is stylish, confortable, very clean and hade very eficient and friendly staff. The breakfast was the best I hade during my Two months Long trip in South East Asia. The room was spacious and very well equiped. The Rex is really value for money

This was the 4th time I had stayed at the Rex Hotel and unfortunately this time it was a disappointing stay. On arrival I found the reception staff quite inattentive, however the room in the old wing on the 4th floor was nice and with a view onto le loi street, however, the noisy restoration works that are going on at the Roof terrace and 5th floor in general from 08.00 to 17.00 daily made the stay distruptive and I found the standard of the hotel was not has it use to be. Most of the roof terrace is closed for business but thay have made a new area which has a bar and facilities for dining, breakfast is now situated on the ground floor and offers a good wide range of choice, on the plus side the Rex is well sitiated if you are a tourist as its close to many of the attractions in Saigon, maybe opt for a room in the new wing as this maybe better whilst the restoration works are in progress..

We stayed here for 4 nights in April, the staff were great and very professional. Although the roof top bar was under renovations we were still able to enjoy a drink or two there, as they still had a scetion open. The spa facilities are fantastic, clean and professional, I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here just 2 nights when we arrived we were upgraded to a room with a balcony and view which was good. The room was comfortable however l would say that sleep quality was poor due to windows not being double glazed. I didn't find the staff particularly friendly either however l think this in the norm in hcmc. The breakfast selection was large & of good quality

We wanted a hotel which was, without doubt, 5*and centrally situated. The Rex was perfect. We stayed a night, then moved to the Mekon Delta then returned to the Rex.The management were excellent. We stayed on the 3rd floor in the East wing. The rooms were perfect. We were very happy with the spacious bathroom which was set across the inner lobby of the room. The room was beautifully furnished. A kindness was shown when the flowers which were delivered to our first room by the '6 star travel agents' were kept and replaced in our room on our return. Thank you, Ms. Ta Thi Thu Tam, the rooms director.The choice of dining covers 5 excellent restaurants / lounge bars and the "roof top" restaurant /bar is a fantastic place to enjoy both the views over the City and entertainment well into the night. Thank you REX HOTEL you deserve all the accolades.
