    Profittering at its Best!!”

    Book 2 suite room from agoda for 3 nights. Agoda booking indicate 2 adult which we thought would be 2 adult occupancy per room which is quite a standard for a hotel in any part of the world. We are a group of 4 which means in no way we would have exceed room occupany as there will only be 2 adult per room. Hotel insisted that they could only allow 2 adult which literally means 1 adult per suite room. Hotel insisted we have to pay USD27++ per adult per room per night which literally means we are paying even a higher rate even conpare to a walkin rate. Mind you these are not breakfast chArges but merely occupant rate. Agoda is totally useless in this situation and nothing they can do as an agent to overcome this. Paid an additional usd160++ which means we had paid so much more compare with any other rate available (both travel agent and hotel rate)! Even the secure agoda rate during booking and the final charges to credit card is a stark s$60 difference!

    Dear Mr. Mohamed Ali, Greetings from the Rex Hotel Saigon Thank you for taking your time to share your feedback. We really appreciate every comment from our guest for the better improvement! We would like to add some points to your review. We did receive your original booking which was made for 2 adults and 2 rooms. The total of adults was two and it was mentioned clearly in your booking confirmation. The additional fee was applied because the total of adults was changed at the check-in time (4 guests instead of 2). Also, the promotion which was applied for your original booking (Early Bird Promotion) is not applied for the additional fee. That is the reason why your rate was higher. Please be informed that the additional fee also includes breakfast fee. Therefore, we look forward to your kind understanding in this case. Once again, thank you for choosing our hotel for your stay! We do hope to have a pleasure of welcoming you back to our hotel in your next trip! Sincere

    Location is perfect Extremely dated interior Staff is friendly enough Room is extremely dim with dark furniture. Charge me for an extra person even though it is a twin room. Not sure whether it’s Agoda mistake to book the room for only one person. Hotel refused to waive the extra although we booked a suite which is a premium room Breakfast spread is average Saw cockroach in our bathroom Lifts are extremely old with insensitive buttons

    Excellent hotel, very clean throughout and the staff were excellent. Food at breakfast was plentiful and varied. Room was well kept and there was always hot water. The only disappointment was the price of the beer in the rooftop bar. Even during happy hour which was two for one, prices beard no comparison to the bars in the area who charged a fraction of the rooftops cost. If the prices were more competitive we as a group would have spent more time at the hotel instead of taking our trade elsewhere. That apart, the hotel was competitive and I would recommend staying here.

    The pool area was loved by my children, the service staff do not come and ask if you need anything and wait for you to find them. Have stayed three times so something is right!! The executive room is also a nice area to unwind with happy hour and the staff are very friendly and good for a chat. Breakfast is fantastic and the view from the rooftop bar is excellent. Location is the best in Ho Chị Minh city. Staff were happy to assist wherever they can. Some rooms are not advertised so you have to know they have them, especially for families with children.

    It was a nice experience to visit Rex Hotel again after a few years’ pause, It deserves it’s five stars now, and is a nice place to stay because of location, facilities and history. The ground floor coffee shop is a nice place to relaxed with a drink watching the bustling life in the area. We only had a meal and a couple of beers at the rooftop this time and found it very expensive. Staff at the rooftop seemed to have varying degrees of training. Staff at the reception, tour desk and guest relations seemed very professional.

Our room was spacious and very comfortable. It was a surprise to see we had a choice of five pillows. Buffet breakfast did not disappoint, with a large variety of western and asian choices. This is a historic hotel and even though it has been upgraded, it still exudes a classic charm. Beds are very comfortable and the quiet atmosphere made for a great rest!

    The hotel is very centrally located near the govt house and the opera and the brand shops. Fronting the wide boulevard also makes it convenient to take walks when the sun goes down. The staff are ultra nice and most of them can speak English. They are very helpful and attentive. The breakfast buffet that comes with the room is also good. The room is spacious and very clean; the amenities are also good., except that it lacked a box of facial tissues. You have to make-do with the toilet tissues in the bathroom.
