I like the Rex. As simple as that. It is not perfect, can be quite noisy due to the construction site outside or the roof top bar (moving chairs) - but it is still a great hotel. Service is professional and fast, the rooms are spacious and nice and the location unbeatable. The experience does change a bit depending on...

We arrived at the hotel and had to wait an hour to get into our executive room even though it was an hour after the checkin time. The room had constant noise coming from inside the hotel- banging, machinery being used, and what sounded like furniture being dragged around coming from above us, that kept us up half the night...

We only stayed in HCMC for one night but had almost a full day to explore the city. The hotel is in a great location, we walked everywhere to see the sights in the city. We booked the hotel based on reviews on Booking.com. Although the location was good, the room was a great size for a city centre hotel,...

Luxurious property in prime location at the very heart of Ho Chi Minh City. Polite, accommodating staff. Was here for 4 nights- the breakfast is to absolutely die for. More food and options then you'd expect to be included in a hotel deal. There is some construction noise going on from a building that is being demolished nearby, but that...

We were lucky enough to spend 2 nights in this beautiful historic hotel. Our room was huge and the bed was a cloud, a welcome change to the hard beds we had had in the past. The pool and roof top bar have wonderful views. Breakfast was great. We also had lunch at the roof top bar which was good...

Location is perfect in district 1, great pool area on the roof top where the sun can reach you somewhere all day. Felt the history of the building. Not so recently renovated but great value for money spent. Puppetshow for free and a huge pile of passionfruit at the breakfast buffet came as a bonus. Grab a hotel suite. No...

Great location, room had all you need. Pool was undergoing maintenance while we were there, which was a bit of a pain. Location is great and staff are excellent. A lot of history here and worth a visit to the rooftop bar if you don't stay.
