"Excellent!!!"
I am enjoy the services and the food here, specially is the breakfast. But there is just one thing that the hotel should think of: the hall way where guesses are waiting for the elevators don't have air conditioning. Other than that, everything is excellent!

We loved the location, close to everything, and the service was outstanding. We were upgraded to a suite, and we could not ask for better accommodation. The water system in the shower needs to be checking, hot water coming out without warning.

"4 star service, 5 star location"
This hotel is one of the less expensive luxury hotels in the Dong Khoi area. The room itself was great, though it was a bit of a maze of a hotel (and our room key didn't allow us to use the closer elevator in the newer part of the hotel). There was also an event in the courtyard that our room faced, which had aggravatingly loud karaoke until 9:30 pm, but after that, things quieted down nicely. The rooftop bar had good breezes, but was quite pricey and was understaffed. The hotel was conveniently located near the opera house, the War Remnants Museum, the Reunification Palace, and the Ben Thanh market, as well as other shops and restaurants. Cabs from reputable companies (Mailinh and Vinasun) were easy to catch from the hotel, and it's easy to find for cab drivers.

"Our 5-day stay at the Ho Chi Minh City Rex Hotel"
It was an amazing experience to stay at the Ho Chi Minh City Rex Hotel. Everything, from location to services, is just perfect. Everyday breakfast is indescribably scrumptious. Due to its being lean, fresh and delicious, Vietnamese cuisine is considered one of the best in the world. The Vietnamese dishes at the Rex Hotel proved that's true. One- or two-day stay at the Rex might not tell you all about the hotel experiences, but our family's 5-day stay at the Rex Hotel said it all. Have you ever wished to be a king or president for just one day? Well, for less than $1,000/ day, the one and the only one penthouse-style Presidential Suite at the Ho Chi Minh City Rex Hotel will surely make your dream come true. We strongly recommend the Ho Chi Minh City Rex Hotel to those who have a chance to stay in Ho Chi Minh City. Let's experience the delectable Vietnamese cuisine, the friendliness of the Vietnamese people, the organized chaos traffic, the beautiful historic sites and the uniquely intriguing history of Vietnam. Let's experience the wonderful Ho Chi Minh City at the Rex Hotel.

While its layout may be somewhat confusing, the hotel is new, well-maintained and comfortable. It also has two roof-top pools and a large gym. Very comfortable stay, no complaints. Breakfast buffet was nice too.

"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.

The hotel was very beautiful with amazing amenities. The rooftop bar and restaurant serves great food. We had a fantastic lunch so decided to come back for dinner. The restaurant was very busy and they didn't have enough staff on to accommodate. I would still come back but the prices at the restaurant don't come with the same service as North America. Fair warning. However the hotel rooms and pool are fantastic.

Our Family took 3 Rex Suites which are in the old building. All the rooms have similar bad smell coming out from the air-cond. the foyer & the rooms need renovation. 2 of the rooms are very noisy each night because of the music from the club upstairs. We complained & moved to a premium room in a new building the next day, The room was A bit smaller but clean & new !

"don't be so pushy"
I want to give special thanks to the hotel management team for remembering my birthday. The birthday cake and card left in my bedroom that made me feeling like at home. Thank you again. The front desk staffs are very helpful and informative. The staff who were responsible for limousine are very commercial and pushy by persuading us to use hotel car. Though I explained to them several times that we would not use it coz of the high price. The same thing never happened to us during our stay in Hanoi.

"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.

"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.
