"Hotel are near to activities"
This is my 3rd time staying in this hotel and I am very happy with it. Breakfast is very good with so many choices. Staff at front desk, restaurant, and room services are all very polite and helpful. Overall, this is a hotel with good value.

"Lovely Hotel - Terrible Management"
What a lovely old hotel in such a great location. However our stay was completely marred by the management's decision to have a TWO day Halloween party in the courtyard of the hotel - complete with a blazingly loud rock band that played until 11:30 pm EACH night. It was absolutely impossible to sleep - with the booming bass sounds reverberating in our room. Why management would think this was a good decision to host this party at the expense of its paying guests is beyond me. Too bad.

"Public areas old,new rooms,breathtaking cafe views"
Public area is somewhat old, but rooms good - i had new room (reconstructed), everything was new and amazing, except for no hair dryer. Price is atypical for such level. Windows were into inner yard, but they were fogged as outside was reconstruction. Althouogh don't know if they will change glasses back to transparent. Staff ultra friendly, breakfast restaurant really has breathtaking views, plain yoghurt is killingly amazing. 80% of guests are non-Vietnamese/non-Asian. Outdoor swimming pool was kids', but they are simply reconstructing large one now.

"Dated and felt kind of cheap"
The hotel really was just fine. I just wouldn't stay there again. But I'll doubt I'll ever make it to that crappy city again. The people at the front desk were nice and spoke English fine. The first thing that hit me when I got to my room was the dingy smell, because who knows how long the AC had been off before I arrived. Luckily it either went away or I got used to it once the AC was running. Furniture was kind of old-timey and the bathroom only had a shower. The bed was ok...seemed old and uncomfortable. The location is ok. Look out for the motor bikes!!!!!!!!! Bottom line more like a 3 1/2 star.

do not expect 5-star quality customer service but the location was excellent. you can walked to pretty much anywhere. Roof top bar was just ok, expensive ($10+) for watery cocktails and it seems like a young kids party place. If you want a quiet and relaxed atmosphere, then this is not the place.

"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.

"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.

"Rex Hotel, an excellent choice for your stay."
We chose the Rex for our 5 night stay in HCMC and were not disappointed. We read many of the previous reviews on this website before making our selection. The hotel has a rich history but with modern updates. The roof top restaurant and bar,pools, and gym were all enjoyed. The breakfast selection is immense so be sure to book with breakfast included. Yes you may have some noise in the evening from the house band playing their selection of sixties,seventies, and eighties favourites but the shut down at 11pm sharp. Our only complaint would be the sound and feel of the weight machines overhead in the gym as our room (421) was directly under them. We got used to it after one morning. The hotel is conveniently located next to Uncle Ho's statue and the People's Committee building. We walked almost everywhere though a cheap taxi would have been faster likely. Don't bother with the hotel shuttle for airport transfers. The green taxis is safe, runs on a meter, and is much cheaper.

We stayed at Rex with our 2 year old daughter. Check-in was quick. The breakfast buffet was great. The location of Rex hotel is virtually in the centre of Saigon so everything was conveniently closed by. The only complain I have is the pool which is not very kid friendly.

"Trip down memory lane"
We were warmly greeted by staff who showed us around and gave us an introduction to what was available since we were booked into the premier suite. It was a very wonderful experience. We chose this hotel because it was the hotel we stayed in 12 years ago when we went to Vietnam for our honeymoon and wanted to bring our children there for memory sake. Very fortunate to see the changes. Only downside was the foot traffic of outsiders and non guests. Also didn't get a room with a view which was disappointing.

Faultless! A magnificent hotel full of character. Imagine Raffles in Singapore but much better value for money. I really enjoyed my stay. The bed was quite soft and I had a great nights sleep. Both pools are great, breakfast buffet was really organised and good quality, staff were really attentive. If I come to Saigon again there is no reason to try anywhere else. Good for couples and especially for families. Can't say a bad word.

A large colonial hotel in a great location.As the hotel has renovation work going on around it be careful about choice of room .We were in room 322 and our frosted windows opened up to green plastic screens covering the renovation work.This meant our room was very dark. The highlight is the rooftop bar with great views.

"The famous Rex"
Good, famous hotel ideally situated near the Opera House. Quirky rooftop pools. My only quibble is the Executive Club. Normally these are on the top floor with decent views. In this case it is a soulless tomb on floor 2 with no view. Service and drinks were ok but the nibbles were minimal (we even had to ask for peanuts). Could try harder.

"An unexpected trip... An enjoyable getaway!"
It started as an impromptu trip... Some last minute planning and decided a getaway to HCMC... Saw a picture of Rex Hotel with the prominent City Hall in the background and told myself: "That's the place I wanna stay...!" And it didn't disappoint at all. It excelled in all expectations of a 5-star establishment. I stayed at it's executive suite and got access to the executive lounge for breakfast, afternoon tea refreshments and evening drinks. Love it's rooftop pool too! The hotel location is excellent too, sitting right in the centre of everything, on one side is Dong Khoi Road, and the other side is Le Loi and Pastuer Road. What more can I ask for? Oh yes, and I tried the hotel's luxury spa too, Cochinchine. It was great and worth the money! I'll definitely stay at Rex Hotel again on my next HCMC visit!

"Not what I expected"
The hotel itself was quite nice and very clean, the service however I was not too happy with. I had booked a room in the executive wing and was told upon arrival that the executive lounge was closed for the whole duration of our stay, we were told to use another lounge instead on a different floor at the other side of the hotel. The second lounge was a small depressing room, with no view whatsoever, the only thing you could actually hear/see were the works going on next door where they are building a metro station. There were no coffee/tea facilities and the food was not impressive either. I'm not sure if this would have been better in their proper lounge but in my opinion it was definitely not worth paying extra. When I did mention this to the feont of house staff they were not accomodating at all, offering us a room upgrade which would have meant changing to a king bed instead of twin beds. In the end they offered us a free one way airport transfer and left a note in our room to apologise. I didn't really feel the service was up to standards for a 5* hotel, if you're not sure where to book I would advise to go for the Park Hyatt or Intercontinental instead as they are very closeby as well.

Most enjoyable having stayed at The Rex Hotel previously. Initially booked for a suite in the new wing but found it too isolated asked to be moved to the old wing which was accommodated and i most happy and content. The Rex Hotel, whilst not the best hotel in VN is well located, provides good consistent service, has good facilities although breakfast is rather dull and boring and in big need of an update, is good value for money and can well be recommended. Enjoy a cocktail on the rooftop watching the activities below as the sun goes down - most enjoyable and relaxing!

"Well-mannered English-speaking Staff!"
The staff at the counter, tour desk and restaurant, was well-mannered and most of them could speak good English. They were professional when they served us. I found one of the young waiters/supervisor on the 5th floor bar who gave his attention to Caucasians. He would smile at them and when he turned towards Asian customers, his smile just disappeared. The room was on 4th floor and was generally comfortable except for the noise from the bar on the 5th floor which was disturbing since it lasted till after 11pm. Also, the water pressure in the shower area was lacking especially with a big shower head. For someone with long hair, it took a long time to complete a hair wash!

Initially we were disappointed with our room, having been checked in to one of the older rooms in this hotel. But after speaking to the very helpful staff at reception, they moved us without any problem to one of their newer rooms and from that point we enjoyed everything about the Rex. It is in a great location for exploring Saigon and we were able to book an excellent tour of Cu Chi through their very helpful tour advisors. The hotel pools and bars are great and overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. A great hotel.
