Grand but Dated Hotel
The hotel is in a great location, right at the city centre. It has a grand façade overlooking the walking street. However, the interior of the hotel is very dated, the wooden floor make noise when you walk on it. We have a ultra slump bed on the first night (you are arched when laying on it) and we managed to get them to change a firmer one later.

Staff inflexible - too rigid and just tried to push hotel in any question we had and therefore all costs. Hotel had 'no soul' very impersonal. Location is good but won't stay there again due to staff.

Great Pool
The Rex is a top quality hotel in an excellent location. The two pools are great in the hot weather and one of the reasons we booked the Rex. I would comment that the Rex was the only hotel we have stayed at in Vietnam that didn't provided the cold tea welcome drink - however they did give a voucher for a complimentary drink in the 5th floor bar.

2 night stay.
Stayed for 2 nights. Breakfast buffet amazing. Hotel right on the square. Great local pub on the corner. Rooftop bat pricey but great atmosphere.

Nice hotel!
Central and walking distance to most places you will want to visit. A little expensive given the choices now available within District 1 but still a great hotel with excellent breakfast options.

A very nice stay
Second stay at the wonderful hotel. Great breakfast and friendly staff. The rooftop pools are very nice. The surrounding rooftop area and gym are looking rather tired and could do with modernising. The Spa was very good.

Relaxing stay
The location of the hotel is perfect and away from the busy and crowded streets of the city. Check in here if you want a relaxed stay in Ho Chi Minh. The hotel is sophisticated, the facilities are complete, and the rooms are big.
