A nice hotel , well situated on the front beach, our room over looked the sea
nice rooms, but this hotel could do with a refurb as it looks and feels out of date by about 30 years
staff pleasant, and rooms clean , it a good value for money hotel though
mike and jan

Room Tip: ask for a sea view room , and tell them you will not pay extra for it

As we were there as part of an Army reunion, our stay of three nights was too short - we would happpily have stayed longer. Our room was very comfortable with a view of the swimming pool area which is beautiful with gardens and statues around the actual pool. We had an in room safe in the room. The laundry service was very prompt and the staff were pleasant and helpful. The buffet breakfast was very good and you had the option to eat it in one of the two restaurant areas of al fresco around the swimming pool. It is oocated close to the forshore.

This is an older hotel but still in good condition . My room was a good size and very clean . Bathroom older style but functional and clean . Breakfast was the same as most hotels and included in the price . Fills you up . There is a nice pool but the water was a bit warm this time of year . Also gym where you can get a good work out . Location is good and you can walk to most places , only a block from the water . Staff friendly and helpful . Good value for what we paid .

In this hotel everything is old and need a renovation or replacement, the breakfast was good though. We made a reservation for a deluxe room seaview, which we did not get in the first place. After asking why we didn't get the room we booked we got the room. The walls are thin, this is certainly not a 3 star, at most 1,5.
For the price they charge you'd better go to another hotel.

At the swimmingpool there is a pool with girls wearing sexy dresses to lure men. When we came back at the hotel at 10 pm an elderly man with was at the reception with a vietnamese girl booked a room for one night. We noticed the majority of the guests are men. Very questionable what is happening at the hotel. This hotel is certainly not suitable for families with kids if you have 'strict' ethics.

Was in town for one night. The palace hotel was full so stayed here instead. The place is in a major time warp circa 1980. It is clean, the room was big and the staff were friendly. Expat bar next door and number off massage parlours close by. Therefore this is a business traveller hotel. Not a honey moon place ,etc. breakfast was passable but not great. I would try a different hotel next time. Swimming pool next door only has a few sun loungers. Cash machine next door which is handy.

Room Tip: Get a sea view room.

Just returned from a month in Vietnam. Went to Rex for a bit of R&R what a disapointment!!! The room was grubby with mould all over ther ceiling. The bathroom had a terrible mouldy smell. Whilst the bed and sheets were clean the towels were thin, gray and well worn. Breakfast was acceptable. There is a lovely pool area which has 5 hard wooden slat sun beds, with no covers, to serve 78 rooms. When I complained to the manager but he was just not interested.
On our journey we stayed in 2*/3* hotels that were far superior the the Rex. If you go to Vung Tau Do Not Stay at this hotel.

I have been to Vung Tau before, but this was my first time staying at the Rex. My husband and I stayed in Vung Tau 1 week after the Lunar New Year. There is a park next to the Rex that was beautifully decorated with flowers for the new year. It also had free live shows at night. Across the street, there is a nice walkway by the water. You will see a lot of people picnicing here. This is the first time we have stayed in the "front" beach. We could pretty much walk everywhere. Of course, if you want to swim, you will have to take a taxi to the "back" beach which is about $2.50usd. The Rex was pretty nice to stay. Our room was huge ( compared to most hotels in Asia). We had a view of the Ocean and pool :-) ( our room was on the 3rd floor). We had a balcony which was great for my husband to smoke. Breakfast was included. The breakfast was ok... They had both western and eastern things on the menu. The hotel was clean. We had free wifi in our room. It would be great if they did a little updating, but overall it was a great stay. The staff was helpful and friendly. I will definatley stay here next time. Try going into the local areas to eat. You will find the food is better and cheaper. Just an FYI.... You can find cheaper hotels in the area. ($15-20 per night) but i would say this is the nicest one I have stayed in yet.
