"Comfy beds but didn't feel welcome!"
We picked The Rex after returning to HCMC from a 2 week trip of Vietnam. We wanted our last night to be luxury and a relaxing day around the pool. However we didn't know that the hotel was under maintenance and so one pool was closed and the other was disrupted by the loud noise of the maintenance (so not the relaxing stay we hoped for). We were also […] asked to pay for pool usage as staff didn't think we had stayed there so I had to find our receipt for the night stay for them to verify it! Rooftop bar is stunning and breakfast amazing. Wouldn't get any food in the Rooftop bar though as its very average and over priced. 10% service charge is added and service isn't great at all. Despite the large number of staff we struggled to get their attention and when we complained about a poor meal they simply all stood around it examining it before putting it back down in front of me and telling me it was faultless! I didn't leave feeling relaxed and wished we had paid for a cheaper hotel with better hospitality. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A touch of class in an excellent location"
We stayed at the Rex for 5 nights at the end of our 3 week tour of Vietnam and totally enjoyed the experience. The history, the location and the reputation of the hotel were key factors for us when we made the decision to book the hotel. It was a great decision and we enjoyed every aspect from the fantastic and extremely varied breakfast to the first […] class sightseeing tour we booked with the Rex. All the main attractions, museums, restaurants and shops are within easy walking distance of this hotel. As mentioned we also booked a tour to the Cu Chi Tunnels and the Mekong Delta via the Rex as they offered a one day tour that covered both visits on the same day. This turned out to be a fantastic experience as we only paid about £30 British Pounds per person more for the two of us than we would have paid for a visit to just one attraction with a standard tour company. Plus we were picked up by our professional tour guide and the hotel's driver in one of the Rex's black Mercedes limousines and were treated to a totally personal and highly interesting tour. Thang the guide was superb and the tour included meals and all entrance fees to the tunnels and for the trips on the boats in the Delta. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Rextra, Rextra, Read all about it!"
What an outstanding Grand Hotel. We stayed in one of the new Governors suites on the fifth floor and the room was outstanding. Separate living area, two toilets (handy in Vietnam!) and top quality mattress and pillows. Reception staff were very welcoming and the doormen were always there with a smile. Breakfast service and food was top notch. All tastes […] were catered for. Outside, there is a egg chef (we only found this out, prior to booking, by reading Tripadvisor). Our stay was thoroughly enjoyable. We could not have picked a better location. Walking distance to the Markets, restaurants, museums etc. Only one criticism is the prices charged for food and drinks on the Roof top bar. We weren't that hungry on the Friday evening and decided to visit the rooftop bar for a drink and light meal.200,000 dong (includes 5% service fee plus 10% taxes) for a Tiger draft beer and 160,000 for a bowl of Pho soup is a little on the expensive side. at 8.30p there were only around 20 people on the rooftop. If management reviewed drink prices, I am sure this area would be packed most evenings. Was a little sad to see an excellent 3 piece band playing to an empty house on a Friday evening. By way of comparison, we had Peroni beer (happy hour 5pm to 8pm) on the 51st floor of the Bitexco Financial Tower for 65,000 dong per stubby! The place was packed!

We stayed at the rex hotel in the new wing section with two young children aged 7 and 5 on 1/4/2013 to 5/4/2013. The room was extremely clean and had a fresh smell everytime we entered our room. It was also nice and quiet at night and the staff were very helpful and professional. The breakfast was excellent with different variety of good quality food. […] The rooftop bar was nice with a terrific view but a bit expensive. Great location with walking distance to ben thanh market. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Best bet in HCMC"
Everything is hassle free at the Rex. Stayed there twice I two weeks and just as good the second time. Upgraded to a suite in the new wing is worth every penny. Would really reccomend this hotel to everyone. Drinks much cheaper in venues around the hotel so avoid the roof garden.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"comfortable rooms (new wing) and friendly staff"
I stayed on business and I would recommend more for leisure. Food isn't great but the rooms in the new wing are very comfortable and the staff went out of their way to help me.Genuine Expedia guest review

Good hotel for business travel but also has good pool and spa is very goodGenuine Expedia guest review
"Rex Hotel - One of the best (conditions applied)"
We arrived quite early (just after 9 AM), which might have given us the avantage of being upgraded to the next (best) room of the hotel on the top (fifth) floor,. Anyway, the room is outstanding, it is more like 1-bedroom apartment with the nearly 180 deg. view. We went out at night (through a window) and took some photos. Being in Sai Gon, it is noisy […] with the window open but it is a different world when they are all closed. Choice for breakfast is comprehensive but we only have Vietnamese breakfast (pho, banh xeo, banh canh ...) and they are outstanding, no comments about other choice; we didn't have enough time to try them but then we probably wouldn't as the Vietnamese buffet is changed every day. There are rooftop bar with good view but we were out most of the time so didn't use it even at night - too tired by then. There is a well-equipped but under-used gym that I used twice to work off all the food and beer (feeling guilty). Locationwise this hotel is good, central to everything, including a Jazz club which I highly recommend. Staff are very friendly and attentive. Overall it is one of the best hotel we stay at (maybe because of the upgrade). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The location great, the rooms adequate but small. The room is good enough for one person but small for 2 and we did book for 2 however the hotelbis value for money. Wevwere there for 3 nights any longer. Definitely need a larger roomGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"a piece of history"
I enjoyed my stay, and the staff were very polite, friendly, and attentive. However, it took over an hour for my luggage to be brought up to my room after check-in - it only arrived after I called down for it - and room service got my order wrong. The pillows on the deck chairs around the pool were a bit stained and lumpy, but the pool was nice. The […] food in the hotel is terrific, and location is very convenient. I also enjoyed the historical significance of the hotel. It's worth staying at - something you should do once, for sure. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"best hotel experience ever."
My best hotel experience ever. The room, the amenities, but especially the level of service, simply the best. At check in, i was third in line, after a minute of waiting, a member of the staff came to me, took me to the bar and asked for my id and took care of everything and came back with the key. A complimentaty drink was offered while waiing. Got […] early check in and late check out. strongly recommend. Prime location. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Good Old style hotel. Nice rooms and staff. Excellent trip to Cu Chi with hotel car/driver and guide. The top floow swimming top could be renewed.Genuine Expedia guest review
"High End Hotel"
This hotel is a high end rent district - hotel located very near all the high end retailers - LV, Rolex, Hermes etc... Great hotel if you are looking for 5 star - it is 5 stars all the way. If you are looking for a hotel to just crash in for a weekend in Vietnam, you will probably be better suited in one of the 3 star hotels. Staff here is very good […] - food good.- Taxi ride through hotel from airport overpriced at 45=$50 / you can get a taxi for under $10. But that is what you get in a 5 star - to be expected.

"Great location in a lively city"
Great location and excellent service from all the staff. One complaint would be the level of noise both at night and in the morning, despite the hotel stating that the hours of 10pm - 8am are quiet hours. A visit to the rooftop bar is a must and good restaurant recommendations nearby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"wonderful service and excellent location"
wonderful hotel full of history and character in a prime location. Not your ho-hum kind of cookie-cutter chain hotel, but rather one with welcome personality,charm and ambiance reflective of the country and the lovely warm people of Viet Nam. Lots of wood, historic photos, etc. Loved the staff and their willingness to assist in every way. well trained […] and helpful. prime location easy walking distance to many touristy sites, markets, fine shops and good restaurants. Traffic around the hotel is a nightmare typical of HCMC so be cautious and brave when crossing the street and have fun watching the action safely from the rooftop patio bar (live entertainment). All in all we are very happy to recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A five star Home away from Home"
The only hotel I would ever stay in when in Saigon. The hotel is magnificent, the staff are friendly and helpful and the food is excellent. Thank you again to the Rex and there fabulous staff and the wonderful service they provided my husband and I. We look forward to our next stay :)Genuine Expedia guest review
"Central location...spacious rooms"
This hotel is located in the centre of the city. Conveniently located near shops, bars and restaurants. Rooms in the old wing were spacious. The only (slight) issue we had was that only one of two people were registered for the breakfast buffet, when two of us had checked in. An overheard conversation by another couple had the same issue. This was quickly […] rectified by reception. There seemed to be many non residence of the hotel using the pool facilities, even though there was controls for this. This could of been a problem with the limited amount of pool furniture. Cigarette smoke filled the lobby from the near by casino. This was some what overwhelming at times...... If you like art deco and older style hotels you will enjoy this one. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"The Rex - an icon and still a great place to stay."
Great location in District 1, short walk to the markets and shops. Enjoy a cocktail on the roof top bar and take in the night time lights of Saigon. Fabulous breakfast buffet with wide range of choices. We booked a room in the New Wing, and this is recommended.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good just a couple of small issues easily fixed"
Our third visit in 8 years , love the location . Noticed prices have risen substancially especially Roof Top Bar / Spa area. Still a great place to visit. My only real complaint is that the WI Fi is no good, we were on level 3 our friends were on level 4 had the same issue.We then asked if the Reception staff could do something for us on the internet […] but the Browser is outdated . Fix that up and all is once again great. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good location, poor amenities"
The location of hotel is good. However even though I book the new wing was disappointed when I checked in. The room was very poor design n the color scheme is not modern. Expected better design as the lobby was very impressively modern.If you are not particular on room decor,suppose room is acceptable .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The famous Rex Hotel - complete with roof top bar. We needed a room that could accommodate 3 for a girls weekend away and the suite at the Rex was good value and offered plenty of room. Great location in District One close to the major sites and shopping areas. There was some noise from the busy street outside and also the bar above but they didn't […] reduce the pleasure of the visit. The roof top bar exceeded all expectations in terms of location, ambience and food and drinks and while there are cheaper venues in Ho Chi Minh City by Australian standards it was well priced and the experience definitely outweighed the expense Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
We found the staff friendly and helpfull. We appreciated an upgrade to a better room with a most comfortable bed .However noisey all - day renovations and a loud band at night desturbed what otherwise would have been a very good experience.We probably would not return on our next visit to HCMC.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Rexmit is a very grand hotel and the staff were excellent. It is in a great location and our room very comfortable, the bed was so comfy after some pretty hard ones at other hotels. The rooftop bar was also a winner. We will certainly return to this lovely hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Very dated and poor customer services"
Very dated and poorly maitained. hard to find a smile on any of the staffs. This may have been a 5 star hotel 20 years ago, but not now!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Historic hotel in outstanding location"
The Rex Hotel looks super funky with its historic look at Art Deco style rennovations. The best part of this hotel is the location.

It was also walking distance to a whole lot of great restaurants and […] day spas that were recommended in the Luxe Guide and Trip Advisor. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Rex, deserves its title"
This hotle is amazing, beautiful location,, lovely old building. We stayed in the old part because the rooms were bigger and it was worth it. Truely fabulous. We went to the roof top bar for sun down and it was fabulous......apart from the 3rd rate fillipino band playing covers from the 60s and 70s. All the old numbers from the dark era of Vietnam ie […] 'Tie a yellow ribbon' etc. Were they too young to know? Apart from that, the Rex is the place to be. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Glad we chose the Rex."
I could nit-pick, however overall this is a great hotel. This is the historic Rex and full of character. The room was one of the most comfortable we have ever stayed in the housekeeping staff were not only very efficient but also very friendly, nice touch, stories and poems left on pillow. Excellent facilities, well furnished, good aircon’ and Wi-Fi […] connection. Rooftop pool and bar a well worth a visit if you want to cool off and relax and the snack menu is excellent (generous portion of smoked salmon). The spa facilities looked inviting although we did not try them. If one thing sticks in our mind it’s the breakfast buffet (Hoa Mai restaurant) , the selection is vast from English to Vietnamese, different selection of meat, fish, rice and noodle dishes every day and super savoury dumplings. Rooftop Garden serves Pho and will cook you a great fresh omelette. The Hoa Mai staff are first rate and very pleasant and attentive, the coffee just kept coming. Rooftop Garden is well worth a visit for an evening drink. Reception staff were most helpful and if you have time to spare between check out and an onward travel connection will secure baggage while you continue to enjoy the city. We are really glad we chose the Rex as our first hotel in Vietnam, originally booked for 4 nights we extended for an extra night. After the heat and bustle of HCMC street life the Rex is a true haven. A really enjoyable stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was my first holiday in Ho Chi Minh City and would recommend the Rex Hotel to everyone including first timers. From the first moment, the service was fantastic. I had booked in the new wing (advice from the reviews) and it more than met my expectations. The room was clean and spacious. The shower and bath were awesome and the bed comfortable. The […] breakfast and service was great. The location made it easy to see the sights. The roof top bar was pleasant to relax at the end of the day. I liked how the hotel portrays the old and new.

I've booked a room to this hotel because was considered a 5 star hotel. When I arrived in the lobby, the lobby was beautifil, then they gave me the key and the room was not more then 2 stars! How can you book a room in a 5 star hotel and they give you an old, noise and bad forniture room ike mine?

"Rex Hotel is a Crown in Ho Chi Minh City"
The entire staff at the Rex Hotel are extremely courteous and helpful. The Hotel also offers tours, and there are a few tourist agencies nearby as well that offer a variety of tours as well. The Hotel itself is impressive and it combines grandeur with a contemporary feel. I stayed in the Rex Suite which I thought was spacious and modern; having its […] own sitting area, a large bathroom with bathtub/shower combination. This suite also has a Juliette balcony. The breakfast buffet is outstanding; serving Eastern and Western hot foods as well as cold cuts and cereals, variety of fruit juices, pastries, and seasonal fruits. The buffet is located on the topdeck of the hotel and you have the choice of having breakfast indoors or on the deck. The weather was ideal to have breakfast outdoors and watch the city awakening. The top deck also has a bar and restaurant as well as live entertainment. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes near the hotel as well as bars. If you like pizza, Sarpino's Pizzeria makes great pizzas as well as other meals. There's also Paris Deli which is another great place to eat that I tried and enjoyed, and both are only a few minutes walk from the hotel and both are value for money. The hotel is about 20 minutes drive from the Airport, and if you are getting there without transfer, then best to take a taxi: Vinisun or Saigon Tourist. It's about 200,000 Dong which is about $10.00 Aussie/US. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Rex Hotel great value, wonderful staff!"
We have stayed at the Rex Saigon many times, it has undergone many changes all for the better. Staff are obliging and fulfill any requests with a smile. The rooms are comfortable and clean but have kept the traditional style of Vietnam. Central to everything. Food in all bars and restaurants was served beautifully and tasted great.Genuine Expedia guest review
We had an Excellent stay, the staff are extremely helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were impressed with the location of the hotel. It's in the heart of the city, with all brand name shops surrounding, 7 minutes walk to Ben Thanh market and in walking distance to most of the big department stores. The rooms in the new wing where we stayed were very clean, modern and in excellent condition. The buffet food was reasonable. The hotel […] staff were very helpful and polite. We were extremely dissappointed at the staff at the reception as on our arrival to the hotel around 2.30 pm after a long trip to Sapa. Everyone were exhausted and tired. When checking in, the staff at the reception coldly told us that we had to wait, we booked 3 rooms: 2 tripples and 1 doubles, as no rooms available, they didn't even tell us how long we had to wait for. The last room that we had about 4 pm, my sister and her husband booked for a double bed room and were given a twin beds room and were told that they had to wait till the next day for her double as they had a VIP guest checked out late due to their flight delayed. After some debates, they reluctantly gave her the double. Other than that, everything was good. We really enjoyed staying at the hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
