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.

The hotel needs a lick of paint! The breakfast was poor for vegetarians. The gym was reasonable, as was the steam room. The location is very good, right next to the market.
It cost us 200020 dongs to get to from the airport to the hotel and then 146,000 dongs to go from the hotel to the airport. The exchange rate was 30,000 dongs to a pound.

The Rex is in an amazing location, right in the heart of Saigon. The service was great, staff helpful. My complaint is the smell of cigarette smoke in the lobby. In a time when we are aware of the dangers of passive smoke it would seem thoughtless and negligent of a major hotel to allow smoking in their lobby cafe. It was the only hotel in Vietnam in which we experienced this. It is for this reason I would not stay their again

We are a couple from Israel and we traveled all over Vietnam for the past 2 weeks, we stayed at nice hotels and I have to say I had the worst experience in my life at the Rex hotel. At first the hotel smelled like cigarettes all over, but this is not the bad part. After two nights that we stayed in the hotel we saw that there is a casino on the property, after a long trip me and my boyfriend thought it would be nice to play there at a rainy night.After few minutes the manager came to us and told us we can't stay at first she said it's because we are Jews after we insisted to know the reason she said it's because we're from israel and this is there policy. It's important to say that we are a polite ,Quiet and we didn't interrupted the people at the casino. When I went to the reception and told them about the anti-Semitic policy they said they can't do anything about it. The fact that we paid so much to a nice hotel and we got a racist behavior in return is a disgrace.
Please every person that consider Imself moral don't give this hotel the legitimacy to exist

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.
