The location of this hotel is perfect. The rooms are amazing. The staff are great. My bad review is based on the terrible smell of cigars that permeates everything in the hotel lobby. It is so bad, i want to hold my breath the entire way through. I can't understand how people can work and shop in those conditions.

Iconic hotel, looking a bit tired

Cons: Location and most of the staff
The Rex Reception is beautiful however the rooms are quite dated. Unfortunately when you come out of the lifts the area stunk of smoke as all the local staff were having their ciggie break inside and just around the ocrner from the lifts. Our room overlooked a large building site and everything was a bit tired. Reception Staff and Breakfast staff were wonderful however the roof top bar staff were not. Our waiter seemed to want to be anywhere else but work. Its was a bit dissapointing.

Great location in district 1

Pros: Excellent service and staff were very friendly
Cons: All was fine
Location: Walking distance to Ben Than market,war remenants museam, reunification palace,Notre Dame cathedral and post office.
Great spot to base yourself for exploring Ho Chi Minh city. Two good rooftop pools to relax in and the rooftop bar was a great place to unwind after a days sightseeing. The breakfast was first class and the choices were endless. The water puppet show was worth a look to.

Fabulous location and service

We were referred here and only had two nights stay before going North. They obviously noted my birthday and gave me not one but two cakes. One the night before in our room and another the next morning at breakfast with a candle. The room was great, clean and well stocked with fresh bottled water. We had a drink at the rooftop bar and the view from there is spectacular. We booked a half day city tour through the tour desk and got our own guide and driver and lots of cold water in a nice merc with VIP access to the attractions without queues. A brilliant hotel well worth the cost.

Excellent Location

Pros: The private tour to the Cu Chi tunnels and the Handicap Handicrafts, was organized by the hotel and our guide Tom(sp) was particularly good.
Location: The Pho di bo Nguyen Hue (Boulevard) is right outside the main entrance to the Rex and is a nice easy walk to the river and used by families in the ev
An older hotel in the grand style, large rooms with comfortable large bed. We were given daily fresh fruit and a recipe or fable at turndown - lovely local touch. Reasonably quiet rooms.
