49 years have passed since I was in Saigon. The rooftop bar was a special place back then, so on this trip I went back to The Rex and relived the moments. The city has changed dramatically since 1968, with many high rise buildings dotting the skyline. Ho Chi Minh city is worth putting on your list of places to visit. (Check the average temps for the best time to go)
The Rex was a great location on the 5th floor rooftop, nice view of the city and good cocktails to make memories.
Food in the city was very good, don't worry about what to eat, it's all worth exploring.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with friends

During my recent trip to HCM City Vietnam we attended a business dinner at Rex Hotel roof top and had a great time. The food was pretty amazing and we got to get some taste of the culture as well as a performance was arranged for us.
The hotel has an ideal location and the quality of food was excellent. The service was top notch as well as we were taken care of very well.

Would love to explore this place in future

The Rex is 30 mins from the airport by taxi, very centrally located in D1. It is surrounded by great restaurants, shops and lovely architecture - all within easy walking distance.

The hotel's transfer service was on time, friendly and had wifi. Check in was smooth, as was check out.

The bed was comfortable and the room well equipped with all the usual features. Thankfully the a/c worked well and was adjustable. Next time l'll take my own soap, shampoo and conditioner but otherwise everything worked well in the bathroom.

There was a good selection of fruit, cereals, yummy bread and pastries as well as Asian and Western hot dishes on the breakfast buffet.

The rooftop bar is a great spot for a knock off drink at the end of the day.

Good sized room with all amenities , great location both for shopping (Ben Thanh market on one side and big brands on the other) and strolling on the famous boulevard in front especially at night amidst the throngs of people. Breakfast was good too.

Room Tip: We had a room with an internal view - so maybe now that you know ask for an external view room.
