"Well located hotel with fantastic staff"
I recently stayed at the Rex Hotel with my husband and 11 year old daughter . The greatest asset for this hotel is the team of fantastic people that work there. Every one of them that we had contact with welcomed us and helped us with everything that we could have asked of them efficiently and with a smile. The rooms were clean and well furnished. The […] bed was comfortable and the pillows amazing!!! The buffet breakfast was great and the restaurants were nice. If I had to choose one thing that was disappointing it would be the pool. It was not a very big pool but it was still a pleasant area to sit. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone that wanted to be in a central location and be cared for by wonderful staff.

"Character hotel in the heart of the city"
We loved our stay; it was a value accommodation. The staff were very kind and hospitable. The rooms we're clean and what we expected. We stayed in both the executive side of the hotel and the non-executive side, and both we're great experiences. I did prefer the roof top restaurant for the breakfast buffet, rather than the Executive lounge breakfast, […] for atmosphere. Thank you for our stay. I will stay at the Rex again if should I visit HCMC again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"In the heart of Saigon"
Perfect hotel in the centre of Saigon, cocktails at the bar are a bit overpriced but you can easily take a 5 min walk to a fancy mall close buy with plenty of choices. Staff was super friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very central hotel"
While the central location of Rex hotel is excellent, it also means that many rooms overlook the busy, noisy street. I recommend you request a quiet room if you are sensitive to noise. Otherwise, can't fault it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great holiday in Saigon at the Rex Hotel"
Enjoyed tours, staff, weather, and central locaton of hotel. Very positive experience Negative was the lack of non-smoking areas in the lobby and restaurants. There are many people travelling with allergies and children so non-smoking is an area that the hotel could improve its client service.Genuine Expedia guest review
We returned to the Rex as we love the central location. We were early, but the check in staff quickly had a room for us. Overall, our stay was very good. Breakfast is excellent, lots of choices and good quality. Service of food and beverage staff a bit varied - sometimes attentive but at other times we may as well have made our own coffee. One other […] problem, the shower was over a bath and no matter how careful we were, water flooded into the floor every time we showered. A bit inconvenient and annoying. Apart from that, the room was well appointed and bed was comfortable. Double glazed windows that open if you wish meant we could take in the sights and sounds or close them out. Nice pool areas, and even through they are renovating there was no noise and good visual screening. We would stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great old hotel located in the center of Saigon"
Center location, classic design, perfectly trained staff, tasty breakfast and nice bars. Comfortable clean rooms. Free wi-fi. Rooftop bar to me seems ovepriced, but this is already a part of tourist attractions. Anyway I believe Rex is a perfect place to stay for a short city trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Still an elegant Grand Dame"
Even lovelier 50 years later....... The spa is wonderful also....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice historic hotel - great location."
It was good = no fault of the hotel; but I couldn't sleep well as the pollution in HCMC really bothered me.Genuine Expedia guest review
My hotel stay was better than I had expected when booking the hotel. It's a lovely grand and comfortable hotel, well located for quick nips in and out to tourist sights. Having previously stayed in international hotel chains and other local hotels in Saigon, Rex certainly stood out in terms of its staff service. From the frontline staff who will come […] out from behind their counter to walk you to the lounge for a very refreshing welcome drink and at the same time dispensed advice on how to keep your belongings safe while in the city, to the Duty Manager who walked us to our 4th floor room, and the security guard at the 5th floor who rushed to hold open the door the moment he has sight of guests and never fails to greet us with a smile and appropriate greeting. Our room in the newly renovated wing was spacious. There was hardly any traffic noise. However, there were loud thumping noises coming from the gym upstairs. The duty manager was quick to offer a change of room when we complained. The breakfast spread was wonderful with a good mix of local and western food. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"wonderful luxury in the main tourist area!"

"Ask for the Bundy brothers suite"
The experience was so exceptional I'd even consider naming an unborn son Rex. On second thought, nothing in our carnal world could possibly justify anything as outrageous as that.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The water heater took 15mins to get hot and drainage is choke when shower.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Charming, historical hotel in fantastic location"
We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We booked a Rex Suite for a family of 4 for 2 nights and, as the hotel was undergoing some refurbishment, we were upgraded to an Executive Suite and it was fantastic. Some parts of the hotel are older and a bit tired, hence the refurb, but I also think this adds to the charm and history of a hotel like this. […] Otherwise we would have chosen one of the other large hotels owned by hospitality chains that are also in this upmarket area. Great location and excellent service, as we experienced in most of Vietnam. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location excellent facilities"
Stay every year at this hotel ... Great location, excellent gym and pool. Rooms immaculate and staff excellent with attention to detail . presentation and friendliness faultless. Air conditioning and Internet could be upgraded but were satisfactory. Refurbished old style motel with foyer now first class with designer shopping mall. Concierge and staff […] cannot be more helpful. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel well priced and super location"
The best thing about this hotel is its great location - walkable to all the main landmarks and shopping areas with safe crossing points (mostly!) The rooms are great. Housekeeping is excellent. Could benefit from better television reception (a lot of static in tbe sound quality) and needs international power points (its a 2 round pin system like old […] Singaporean powerpoints so take an adapter as the hotel sells them , but does not loan them.) Breakfast is adequate and a mix of Asian and Western. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I'd like to recommend this hotel to my friends who plan to have a trip to HCMC. It locates at the central of the city with nice services. It makes my holiday even better.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Lovely Stay at the Rex"
Spent a wonderful weekend in Ho Chi Minh City at the Rex. Room was spacious and clean. Staff was courteous and helpful. Area surrounding the hotel was beautiful and safe.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful hotel, excellent staff, fantastic food,"
When the taxi pulled up out the front I said to my Husband this is the wrong place, my Husband looked up at the Rex Hotel sign out the front and said - Well it says "Rex Hotel", the hotel looked too flash to be what I had booked from the Expedia website. Upon entering I noticed the lobby and reception area, which I remembered from the Expedia photo's, […] this looks like the place. We checked in, reception staff seemed a little confused about our room booking at first so I gave them the Expedia print out for the booking, made the check in a little smoother, the staff from there were very, polite, very friendly and very helpful. Information about our room, our stay and what time was our flight out - how long it takes to get to the airport, what time we should leave, very helpful tip when in a foreign country and don't won't to miss planes. We were then taken up to our room, better than expected it had two toilets a huge soft (but firm if that makes sense) bed, a pillow menu and a main bathroom that was big enough for family of 10 to use not to mention the shower was big enough to fit 4. There was a separate lounge comfy formal style lounge, a second large TV and very large windows, even though our windows looked into the centre of the hotel, the beautiful garden growing up the walls and outside eating area was very pleasing to look at. Breakfast was brilliant and so was the room and food and staff, you must have the soup. A must do if staying in Saigon - Rex Hotel, Governor Suite Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel, perfect location, wonderful staff"
We stayed at the Rex at the beginning of our trip and again at the end after some time in Hoi An. Both experiences were excellent. The location, rooms and service by staff were all spot on.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel - lots of character, fantastic service and location and a rooftop bar with a view. Would definitely stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"It is a classic hotel, with a great terrace."
We didn't realise that we would lose 100% of our money if we cancelled 2 days before we travelled, for medical reasons. We have stayed there before and like the hotel but we are very disappointed. The price was not that cheap!Genuine Expedia guest review
We were treated like royalty from the moment we stepped out of the taxi st the front door, friendly and professional staff, beds were very comfy with a great choice of pillows, breakfast buffet A+, tour desk very helpful , fantastic value for money, great city location, highly reccomendGenuine Expedia guest review
Beds and pillows really comfy and hotel very nice. Location was great and close to all attractions.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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

We used this hotel as a one night stop over, wish we could have stayed longer.Genuine Expedia 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

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

"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

"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
