After a disastrous stay in the Palace Hotel on our return trip to Saigon we decided to splash out and stay at the historic Rex, we certainly didn't regret it. The added bonus was that on arrival we were upgraded from a Rex suite to a Grosvenor Suite, sheer luxury! We had lunch and dinner at the roof top terrace which was magical. Breakfast was fantastic, Staff are very attentive and we managed to extend our check out time, the only negative comments I would have is that the swimming pool areas are disappointing. However if I was visiting the city again I would definitely stay there,

I'd had not stayed in this hotel but did a quick view into the rooms with the help of their lobby staff.

Was briefed that Rex Hotel had been around for 80years - impressive! I'm sure they have been regularly refurbishing this property.

Lobby was enormous and beautiful. Staff was pleasant & helpful.

Rooms were nice and decently big. New wing rooms were bigger and brighter as compared to old wing rooms.

Will definitely give this hotel a try the next time!

We stayed for 7 nights, room was excellent with a comfortable bed, and well maintain. Breakfast was nice with a large arrange of food from fried eggs to Din sum. The rooftop pool was nice and kept very clean, we had it to ourselves most of the time. Rooftop bar had great views in the evening but is pricey but we did expect that, you will need to book to get the best tables. We found the staff very helpful, we booked a couple of trips with the travel desk, we could have got them slightly cheaper if we had shopped around but we were very happy with the service we received. Everything you want for a good hotel.

At a very good price, 150 dollars a night, I staid for second time in the Rex Hotel, an hotel of the old generation, in a building of the beginning of 20th century. and recently totally renovated and transformed in a very elegant 5 stars hotels.
I have been very impressed by the quality of the hotel, much better than I lived 10 years ago. And I would recommend it warmly.
The room was huge with all the comfort and commodities you will appreciate: large bathroom, fruits on the table, mini bar, free wifi (even a little slow as often in Vietnam), and, more than all, a fantastic staff, efficient, smiling and so gentle, you cannot imagine, coming from Europe that it is still possible.
You will find a gigantic lobby arounded with luxurious stores, Channel, Burburry, and so on (if you need it ???), a very friendly lobby bar and cafetera. And at the fifth floor, pool and health center. And a very comfortable restaurant, closed with conditionned air or open with view on the city.
It is certainly not the most luxuous hotel in HCMC, a lot of them opened recently but it's a very charming one at a very good price. Test it, you will appreciate!

On arriving at the Rex we were advised that we were to be upgraded to a superior suite. Obviously we were happy as a consequence. We believe that we were positioned out the back, so to speak, as there were a number of officials at the Rex at this time and, as a consequence, rooms were scarce. Our room was positioned in the middle of a construction zone. The shower continually overflowed, we could not rest during the day as jack hammers and construction tools were used until 5pm each day. We complained to management, but they did little to assist us. Could not see in the closet, more particularly could not use the safe as it was too dark. Our view from our room was into an unfinished untidy construction zone. Very disappointed. Have complained to our travel adviser. Would want to improve before stopping here again.

Room Tip: Try before you buy.

The hotel is 5 star and everything from the personnel to the amenities are more than excellent The bedrooms are so divine, with the most comfortable beds ever, and the linen is top quality.
There are two swimming pools ,with separate bars and great service . An evening on the roof top bar is a must enabling you to view the District 1 area from above.

Saigon at its best..

I shall defiantly re visit

This hotel is spectacular. It is clean, refurbished, comfortable luxurious king bed, choice of 2 pools, 3 eateries, entertainment at night and 2 blocks from the market. Location is excellent with shopping centre across the road and other shops surrounding. If / when I go back to Vietnam this will definitely be where I stay again. The staff are also friendly, professional and can't help. You enough. Definitely worth trying!

Room Tip: Worth getting a superior room for not much more money.
