Rex Hotel
Ranked #23 of 81 Hotels in Vung Tau
Reviewed 27 August 2014

The Rex in vung tau is a tired hotel it needs an upgrade. The staff were fine and everything worked with a wonderfull pool and ok restaurant. Guests at the hotel were mainly Indians working on the off shore oil rigs, some were pleasant some were very rude both to us and the staff.
The off shore oil industry plus buses from siagon leave every 15 minutes Vungers on weekends makes it by vietnamese standards expensive for accomodation.
Vung Tau is not worth the trip in my opinion for a european tourist we went because I went there frequently in 1969 70. We did the battle field tour with Tommys Bar, expensive but good.
Vungers is very much a Vietnamese tourist oriented town.

Room Tip: Half the hotel rooms have ocean and pool views the other half view roof tops, the best room shown wa...

Check-in was very quick and the reception staff very nice - except for 1 woman who gave the impression she could not be bothered.
Rooms are very clean, beds comfortable with a good sized bathroom. Breakfast is more than adequate. Swimming pool is of a good size and well maintained. Can be noisy early morning several days each week with children learning to swim (which I am totally in favour of but an hour of whistle blowing calisthenics before swimming is a bit too much)
The hotel is in need of minor renovation, otherwise a good hotel to stay in Vung Tau.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are very good.

First class location, rooms with a sea view. But otherwise it's not worth the high price. Most front desk personnel are unfriendly, the same is true for service staff.

The rooms are clean, but table and bed linen are all worn out and no longer clean enough. Several holes in the bedroom carpet.

Balcony door and windows are loose, the bathroom is in a bad shape, the ink is crooked.

The only friendly guy is the security guard.

Room Tip: rooms to the south

While dated the hotel we rated the hotel the same as it official rating of 3 stars.
The room was clean and the bed comfortable.
It's worth paying the little extra for a Superior pool side room as they are larger and have a great outlook along the Vung Tau front beach.
Breakfasts are primarily Asian food with just enough Western food to satisfy us, but a larger choice would have been welcomed.
Front end reception staff were polite and helpful.
We'll definitely stay there again on our next visit.

Room Tip: Good quality reasonably priced western food available a 100metres away at Tommy's 3 Diggers Rest...

i was recommended to stay in this hotel; mainly for its location.

not so good points:
at entrance, it is a simple hotel, and you would notice that is old.
also, there are very few frontdesk personnel to assist, so you would have to wait
if a large group is checking in.
the aircon in my room was not working. the technicians had to come in twice, before i decided
and asked for another room.
the second room was better. but the next day, i had issues with the aircon again, and the technicians had to come in to fix...
some of the staff were very helpful, patient and friendly. but some barely even smiled or greeted.
at some nights, it can get quite noisy since the place right across is often used as venue for fairs or local gatherings.

ok points
during my issues with the aircon, the staff were quick to respond to the problem.
the hotel provides for the basic necessities.

all in all..
if you are one to visit with limited budget and wont be staying in the hotel most of the time, this could be bearable. but i would pick another hotel in my next visit.

Room Tip: pick rooms that are not facing the road. higher floor rooms seem better

One staff member can often colour your view of the whole establishment. On the one hand there was one very testy receptionist who was quite sharp and unfriendly, but on the other hand, the doorman saved the day by stepping in and putting things right and being very helpful. I would rate it between average and very good if that category was available but I think it was a little overpriced for what was on offer. One of the major problems was the number of oil industry workers who seem to use the hotel when off duty and some of them were very loud and obnoxious and on occasion it was a bit upsetting to see how some of them treated the local Vietnamese staff, but you can't blame the hotel for that. Overall it has a good location, a good pool and some good staff. My biggest complaint was at the this price you expect hot water.

Stayed here, thinking it part of a chain. Like the Rex in HCMC.

Sheets were dirty, rooms below average, tidy but not fully clean even by Vietnamese standards.

Bathroom had mouldy walls. Rooms where very noisy even though my faced the swimming pool

Over priced.

Room Tip: Choose another Hotel
