Located in downtown, at the heart of the city and next to the city hall. Then good for both tourism and business. The lobby is simply amazing, with several fashion shops and even a casino in the first floor.
Rooms are spacious and confortable enough. And breakfast is 5 stars ++, served into an awesome room on the fifth floor. Professional staff. The only negative aspect: room only available from 2pm in advance. If you arrive in an early flight no way to have a rest and /or a shower before that time.

Stayed: September 2017, travelled on business

I have been visiting Rex Hotel nearly 3 years. I was a witness of the new metro construction nearby. I always rented a room inside with no view but the construction noise never disturbed me. During the 3 years, they rebuild the rooms as well. The recent ones are with wooden floor, nicely decorated and spacious. The room price first was very favourable than it went up when they finished the construction at Nguyen Hue.
These days there are still construction in progress on the other side (Le Loi) but the room prices went back to the more reasonable level. The service is average.

Having the chance to stop over in Ho Chi Minh city was a bonus for us so we choose to experience the Rex Hotel given it's old world charm. The hotel is perfectly located and a close walk to most of the main tourist attractions in town.

Our room was located on the 2nd floor and was spacious and beautiful, the staff were very helpful and the food was amazing. We found ourselves most nights back on the rooftop bar area soaking up the breeze and cold drinks.

My only strike would be that the noise at night from outside did keep us awake some times however we were there during Independence celebrations so it may have been just bad timing on our behalf.

Overall it was a great stay.
