Went there on Nov 28 for late night dinner with a group of friends and the food really sucks!!! When it came, the tuna sandwich has a "overnight" smell, the grill pork was hard and cold, the rice that came with it was so hard, you need a hammer to knock it! The fried rice was cold and so were...

I absolutely loved this hotel - it is central to everything yet peaceful & quiet. The service is seamless & the staff in the executive lounge are superb. The checkout was exceptional as they allowed me to pay with my remains Dong & pay the difference on my credit card as I was leaving Vietnam this saved the hassle of...

We booked an airport transfer with the hotel and I would not recommend anybody to use this service as it's not worth the price. Upon meeting the hotel representative at the arrival hall he brought us outside and we have to wait for him to contact the driver. When the car finally turn up it was not a premium car...

I stayed here with my wife for our wedding anniversary for 5 nights. What a great time we had. The hotel staff were very helpful and the hotel is located,within walking distance of markets, shops, bars and restaurants. The swimming pool was clean and the poolside service was excellent. We also tried out the rooftop bar which was very pleasant...

I found the hotel old and in need of modernisation. Everything seemed past it's sell by date although the rooftop bar has a great view of central HCMC. The hotel in in the very centre of town so easy access to all the sites and sounds of HCMC

Staff are friendly. It is very clean and located right where all the actions are. Being on the rooftop the pool is very peaceful. The rooftop bar is lovely in the afternoon. Although it is quite pricey but you get the view in return. Oh, by the way don't try their coconut ice cream. There is a better one down...

I had long wanted to stay here and was really looking forward to it. I was slightly disappointed by my room, which was dark and small, but tried to keep a positive outlook. I was slightly disappointed by the strange music at the roof top bar, but rolled with it. Then I started sneezing and had a stuffy nose, followed...

I chose the Rex Hotel for its historic place in Saigon. We landed quite late in the evening and it was quite relaxed to have a night in the Rex before travelling to family in the Mekong delta. Our room had no real view but that didn't matter. The bed was fantastic, the shower was great and breakfast was copious...

This is a great hotel if you want to get some luxury without paying too much for it and if you don't want to stay in an international chain hotel. Big rooms, great executive lounge and service, excellent house-keeping, big rooms, comfortable beds. But the only minus is the high price level in the restaurants and bars, which made us...
