I stayed at Rex with my bf and mom during X'mas period and was very impressed by this hotel. I was a bit hesitant at first as there're many hotels at the river front. Turned out the Mekong river wasn't great at all and Rex is newly renovated with very spacious room and bathrooms - great for its value and...

A way to end a lengthy trip. Having travelled around for a while found ourselves in Ho Chi Minh for a couple of nights before heading home. Wanted a good location in District 1 and a little bit of luxury. The Rex is fantastic. Great service, great facilities, great location, great breakfast, great rooftop bar......just great. From the minute you...

Very impressive hotel. Check in was personal and very professional. The room was amazing. It was clean, modern and spacious. The Hotel had a nice pool and workout area. The complimentary puppet show was very good. The buffet breakfast was amazing and had plenty of options. Very good stay at a very reasonable price.

We could not have made a better choice as the Rex is within walking distance of most of the "must see" sights in Ho Chi Minh city. Well worth upgrading to the large Executive rooms to enjoy the extra touches like traditional nibbles and generous drinks during happy hour. Enjoyed the Imaginative "mocktails" and the fact that you could pop...

This Hotel has been renovated in recent years and as such has raised the standards even higher. The building is old French architecture and although it has been extensively modernised, it still has that high class unique feel about it. The location is ideal being right in the centre of D1. The staff are generally warm, friendly and helpful, and...

The Rex Hotel was a spectacle both inside and outside and we were able to stay a night in the Presidential room which had a large tv area and seperate bedroom. The main window overlooked one of Saigon's busiest streets but traffic noise was not heard inside the room. The room was very spacious and the bed was very enjoyable...

We stayed at the Rex Suite and the room was huge. The room is a traditional style with wooden décor. The location is perfect for touring Saigon. We were there for New Years eve and it was a huge celebration just outside the door. The open air terrace was really nice to enjoy breakfast. The food was great with a...

I stayed in several of the better hotels in Saigon. I thought I would try the racks because it's centrally located near the walking park. I reserved an executive suite to make sure I received a quality room. When I entered the room I realized it was about as big as the sixpence inn. In fairness it had the charm...

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...
