    The Rex is a great hotel located conveniently in District 1 and in walking distance to all major tourist sights. Our room was spacious and a great place to relax in after a day of walking the city. Breakfast was a culinary delight every day and you're surrounded by the most impressive green wallswhen dining. The roof top pool and dining areas were fabulous and made for some great city skyline pics. Free wi fi, pillow menu and turn down service included.

    Absolutely nothing. One of the best hotels we have stayed in.

    Great location, spacious and comfortable room, plentiful breakfast even though not that exquisite... Overall, definitely an hotel with character that I recommend.

    No minimal isolation in the windows! Got a room with a view on the park/City Hall, 3rd floor, and it was not always pleasant but it was bearable for me, no complains. But this Ice cream vendor!!!!!!!!!!!!! The guy killed me. His 5 seconds melody is still echoing in my head, 4 days after I left HCMC. He is standing there with his Ice Cream motorbike every single night and till 23:00. I wouldn't recommend a room on this side of the hotel. But not sure it is better elsewhere if there is no isolated glass! I wonder why the hotel is not asking him to put his music box on a 'silent' mode!? Or simply buy all his ice cream stock 'cause he is digging from late afternoon till night...

    Great selection of food at breakfast Very comfortable beds Swimming pool was always quiet @ night

    Rooftop bar prices were crazy expensive . Lack of towels in bedroom . Hotel is more for buisness than leisure .

    The hotel facility's were great. The staff helpful and efficient.

    Breakfast was buffet style. With much variety but the organisation was poor with regard to service at the table. There was an air of chaos.

    Location only.

    I've been to a lot of hotels and the Bathroom of this hotel to my opinion is of 2 star standards. Even though the room is big I don't feel comfortable due to paint is peeling, and the room feels tired and old. Breakfast is in a temporary location since the restaurant is being renovated, and it is difficult to differentiate which is buffet food and which you have to pay for. The hallway is hot and not Aircond. The restaurant staff service is quite poor compared to other hotels in Saigon, even a 3 star ones. Overal this hotel charges 5 star rate but provided facilities and service only to a 2 star standards. I'm not coming back to this hotel and would not recommend it to anyone.

    The location of this old gem is perfect when staying in Saigon. The rooftop bar is cool with happy hour (buy one cocktail get the second one free). The history associated with the hotel made the stay even more enjoyable. Classic photos in the stairwell is like a gallery space and was very inviting. Breakfast buffet was good. The two swimming pools are nice - very quiet at times and always relaxing. The vertical garden is worth checking out.

    The hotel didn't tell us that they'd be blocking my card on check in. I only had one debit/credit card with sufficient money for other expenses while in Saigon and one travel card to pay for my stay. They blocked my debit card as the travel money card didn't work on their machine for some reason. Leaving me stranded for some cash and shopping. The front desk staff seemed quite unfriendly, and on check out, some of the staff seemed flustered with us having our suitcases and they just wanted us to leave asap as we weren't their guests anymore.

    Fabulous location, old school detail remains and check in process smooth and well executed

    The breakfast organisation was pretty awful, no one to greet you on arrival and explain how the process worked. Getting a coffee was a mission.

    We have never stayed in a hotel as meticulously clean as the new wing of the Rex is. The staff are all extremely friendly, great restaurants and bars. The private tours we did were in Rex Hotel cars (late model Mercedes and BMW sedans). The driver and tour guide Sa were fantastic.

    Nothing at all, except when the time came to leave this beautiful hotel.

    - location - breakfast variaty is huge

    I didn't like Rex hotel in general. - Bothroom was bad, not for 5-star hotel worse when we had in 3* hotel in Nha Trang. - window went to corridor, so you never can open it and it was noisy - hotel was under construction. We should pass corridor of dusty mist to get restaurant on the top. They also started hammer at about 8 a.m.

    We came to Vietnam to celebrate my mother's 60th birthday. They put a personalised cake and a card in the room while we were in the Garden Bar having cocktails. The room was absolutely spotless. The linen was superb. The sheets in other hotels felt like sandpaper after the quality of linen at the Rex. The staff were exceptionally friendly and efficient. I was very impressed. I can't fault this hotel. I loved it.

    Location, that's why I booked the Rex. I first stayed there in 1991, and it has improved a lot. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, very nice rooms. Very good value for money.

    Rooftop bar closed very early (1am) and was somewhat overpriced. Minor problem.
