I've stayed at the Rex 4 times for both business and vacation. The hotel is beautiful, colonial style. Fantastic location right in the middle of District 1. I love the rooftop bar for a drink in the evening (although prices are very steep). Food at the hotel is OK, I prefer to eat at surrounding restaurants for price and quality. I stayed in room 432 most recently; faces courtyard. Smelled faintly of smoke (wasn't sure if from smokers in the room or wafting from courtyard). This room was a suite and very spacious; clean and comfortable bed. However be aware that it is very noisy from the live music on the rooftop; I could hear it past 1030pm. Fortunately I sleep with ear plugs, but was irritating nonetheless. Next time will definitely not stay in a room near the stairs facing the courtyard. Best part is the amazing breakfast! Authentic Vietnamese plus Western food. Will stay here again, just with different room.
