"Last night inVM"
The hotel is absolutely gorgeous. We were checked in quickly. I felt a little uneasy, because we had just travels 6 hours on a bus & were kind of grubby. We did go to our room, which was very, very nice. I was so glad to see a bathtub. We went down for dinner in the cafe & the service was great. However my fried veggie rolls tasted like they had been fried in old grease. Then we went to book a train for my daughter. The concierge, was very rude. My daughter had researched the price for taking a train & his cost was twice as much. When she ask him about it, he got very indignant. He kept slamming the phone down, after he would call the train station. We went back in the morning & he had us talk to another man. They gave us 3 prices. I paid for the most expensive one. When we got the ticket, it was for the 2nd priced one. Then we were going to the VN War Museum, when we told the cab driver where we were going, he told us it was closed from 12-1:30. I feel they probably knew this & didn't tell. I was to it would cost about 200,000, it was 350,000. I didn't like the way they disrespected us. I have stayed I plenty of 5 star hotels & have never felt this u comfortable. The breakfast was nice, very traditional VM food.

"pleasantly surprised"
I stay at the Rex regularly and always stay in the new section, but this time I was moved to the remodeled old section and put in a junior suite. The room was great, the bath was still a bit small, but overall the room was fine.The staff are always very friendly and professional.

"Best of the District 1 Five Star Hotels"
The Rex is a beautiful, newly remodeled and expanded hotel, right in the heart of District 1. I stayed in the new wing, which has all of the modern amenities. Service is outstanding and courteous to a fault. Breakfast buffet is plentiful and varied, with Asian and Western dishes alike. I have stayed in other top hotels in the neighborhood, but the Rex is my favorite by far.

"and the pedicab, neat, but get the mask first"
Lovely feel/ambiance. Not the ostentatious/cold of the very, very colonial tall Raj places. Only five stories (good). Was upgraded two levels, from Urban to Executive for no reason I know. Roof bar kinda cool. Breakfast included is unbelievable. Near everything. I would go back here always. So I would say one would be very plaesed. They arranged our My La (sp?) tour and the very, very nice expert tour of the fabulous Ben Thanh market. Class terrific.

This hotel was amazing. Nicer than any hotel in Las Vegas and I've stayed in just about all of them. Quality of the room, quality of the restaurants, quality of the health club-all top notch. It's also right on the city center with many sights within easy walking distance. I have several people that I know are going to Vietnam and I highly recommended the Rex Hotel to them. Outstanding!

"Great location! Great Service!"
We have spent four nights at Rex and found it being our second home in Vietnam! After spending a few minutes surfing on the web, everyone can easily tell this hotel is located at the heart of the city. It is accessible to all tourist attractions in the city within a short distance. We had breakfast at their Ho Mai restaurant. They provide a very good variety of food, especially the Vietnamese style ones, such as Pho Bo. Also, their staffs can even recognize us and so did not even ask for our room number except the first time! Their tour service in the lobby did offer very good suggestions also. Exellent service! P.S. their Internet speed is superb! I felt like I was working at home~

"Nice Hotel"
Super nice hotel, I just happened to have a puny room in a high traffic area with a tiny bathroom - no bathroom counter space with a tub and shower curtain. My other colleagues however had large rooms and all got free upgrades -- rooms more spacious with beautiful shower stalls and separate tubs. I probably just had room envy. ;-) The bed and pillows were super comfy! Fresh fruit in the room and "stories" on your pillow in the evening with turn down service. Great hotel.

I was surprised when front desk called and said they were coming up with a cake to surprise my partner whose birthday happened to be on the day we checked in – totally appreciate the great service and excellent hospitality! The hotel is strategically located within the heart of HCMC, District 1 and is walking distance to many cafes and tourists spots (reunification palace, ben thanh market, skydeck etc). I'd definitely return if I'm back at HCMC.

"Glamorous Location"
When you arrive in Ho Chi Minh or any city like it, the Rex is a haven even if only temporarily before getting out there again and seeing Vietnam for real. The service from start to finish was faultless and cheerful to a degree with sincerity. My suitcase was left at Honk Kong airport and the staff were very helpful about communicating in order to retrieve it the next day. The room was spacious, well designed and very clean and comfortable and the housekeeping staff incredibly quick, kind and efficient. Breakfast was all very fresh and nicely prepared with an international chioce, and it could be taken in any of three places including an outside area although we stayed inside in the cool. There are two rooftop pools (one more for families) with a bar, adjacent well equipped gym and a fabulous spa with some great treatments we took advantage of every day like returning Sybarites after a exploring the city and the Mekong Delta. The location and luxury comes inevitably with the big brand stores which surround you to provide the glitz and glamour, and of course the big wedding parties and cringing music, but that happily was our only wince. Thank you Rex and all of your very lovely gracious staff who never ever even hint at a tip as it's not a custom here, although never have I felt like giving one more.

"Hotel in need of a refurbishment"
This is a very old hotel and in desperate need of a refurbishment. It's stuck in the 1970's. Very tired decor and layout. We stayed in a suite and were informed the hotel had a no noise policy from 11pm-8am yet we had staff walking past our terrace after midnight. No hot water in the shower the next morning. We also encountered challenges with the restaurant and with the bar services. The check-in staff informed us that we had a 4pm check out the next day due to the type of room we had booked, yet at 2pm they called us in our room to ask us to check out ASAP. The only positive feedback I can give about this property is its central location.

"Excellent location"
Hotel is right in the center of the city, all must see buildings/museum/Market/boat station are at the walking distance from the Hotel. Hotel rooms are specious,clean and well maintained. Staff is well behaved and very helpful. Fifth floor roof top bar is excellent for taking dinner and beer under the open sky with live band. Food is excellent, but not much choice for the vegetarians. As we had to leave hotel early ( 5:00 am in the morning ) to catch flight, hotel PRO took great care of us and arranged packed breakfast boxes for us before checking out. Personalised Mekong delta tour was arranged nicely only for three of us and hotel car was provided to drop and pickup. Metro train work is in progress at HCMC but hotel informed us well in advance and gave East block to avoid construction noise. During our stay (19th to 22nd Feb 2015) we did not hear any construction noise in our room. HCMC streets were well decorated with flowers for the Chines new year and it was a wonderful sight but If you are visiting HCMC for the shopping then avoid Chinese New year as full market remains close for minimum 4 x days.

"Since you asked.....honestly speaking"
Although the hotel is at a great location, the surrounding area is undergoing an intensive road and subway project. There was a lot of disturbance and this information was not posted prior to booking. The beds and pillows were uncomfortably soft. For a suite, the air conditioning was substandard and stuffy.Rex Hotel lacked the ambiance of a grand hotel. Although it had many High-end Brand flagship stores in its premises, the lobby did not do it justice. The staff were slow to respond and proficiency in the English language needs to be improved. Dining facilities and environment lacks ambiance. The breakfast arrangements were poor. Most of the warming trays were dual compartments, with selection of vegan place together with meat, or halal with non-halal items. Evidently, one would spill-over to the other. Other dining venues did not impress either. It was neither easy to find nor did it exalt the grandeur of the establishment.

Then they suggested that they can upgrade it to a bigger room with less charge than the fee of an extra bed. The room looked like a junior sweet and very big. We could enjoy the stay there.

"Rex Hotel - old charm in the heart of the city."
The Rex Hotel provides a very pleasant experience to travelers. The hotel is charming, historical (roof top bar served American journalists during the Vietnam war) and lovingly modernized to provide a 5-star experience. We especially enjoyed viewing the many wedding ceremonies during our stay (spent Christmas there). The hotel is very centrally located and within reach of the many museums in the center. The ongoing metro construction creates some noise around the hotel but this is not felt in the rooms. Expected to be finished by 30 April 2015 in time for Vietnam nation anniversary.

Rex Hotel is an old establishment and very well kept. It is very centralised and within walking distance to most locations. However, the city is currently building it's MRT line by the side of the hotel and a little inconvenience is felt as you may have to walk a bit more to circumvent the construction site. The breakfast spread of Western and Asian dishes is great, and the great view from the rooftop where breakfast is served make a great start to your day.

This was my second stay at the Rex. I like this hotel becuase of the lacation. It is in walking distance to most of the tourist spots. This time I chose the West Wing which is newer and much nicer. The West wing is definatly 5 star, but the est wing is quite shabby and needs updating. I had two spa treatments which were very nice and professionally done. Currently there are major road works going on outside which disrupts views and some walking access.
