Old historical hotel which looks good outside but
For the price we paid we expected this to be the best experience. Turns out it was the most mediocre of all of the three hotels we stayed in. It literally is just an old iconic/historical hotel which is not really making any effort to impress guests anymore because their brand is already established. The hotel room is very standard. The pool is sad and old. Breakfast buffet line was disappointing with horrible quality of food. The rooftop bar is overly hyped and was NOTHING special. It was also extremely overpriced. The staff are pretty good and helpful so i would say that was the one good thing about this place, along with superb location.

Very Comfortable
My first time traveling anywhere in Asia. Rex Hotel is very clean, safe, and convenient to almost anywhere in Saigon. Many great places close by for coffee, dining, drinking, shopping and much more. Breakfast buffet is very good, be sure to include it with your room. The only downside during my stay was the availability of chairs at the pool areas. Taxis are readily accessible right in front of hotel. They are very convenient and quite inexpensive, especially compared to cab fares in the US.

Nice Environment but old hotel
My stay was fine with big room and toilet. Room slippers were supplied but not comfortable to wear- stiff. No plastic laundry bags available probably hotel is on eco-friendly scheme or cutting down cost? BF spread was good. Couldn't make full use of the swimming pool at the top due to very scorching weather .
