Tried to go swimming at Rex Hotel this morning. Despite the information on the internet, they do not charge 160k VND, which would be expensive but still halfway reasonable, but instead they charge you 346k VND per person = $16. They have two pools, out of which one is children's height and maybe 6m long, the other one is around...

Central location next to town hall at the Nguyen Hue. Impressive reception and hall with top boutiques (e.g. Chanel). Dignified furniture and spacious architecture. The rooms are equipped in a noble, solid style, but be careful, there are rooms to the inner side of the hotel with have just tiny loop-wholes instead of windows! A real minus! The rooftop restaurant,...

I love this gracious hotel. I was greeted by name when I arrived and treated to a room upgrade and a few other welcome benefits. My room was beautiful, big, clean and the most comfortable bed possible. The rooftop bar, although pricey is friendly and pleasantly busy. Its a great place to hang out and the cocktails are delicious. The...

HCMC has many newer "western" style 5 star hotels--so if that is what you desire then look at the Sheraton, etc. But if you would like to experience a classic, then try the Rex. First the location is the best. You are in the center of HCMC and within 10-15 minute walk to everything--Ben Thanh Market, Reunification Palace, Saigon River,...

Nice hotel located in the center of the old city. Rooftop bar with good band in the evening. Rooms are big and comfortable. A bit noisy on one side of the hotel due to construction works. Make sure you don't get a room on that side.

Stayed for 3 nights on our 1st stop of a Vietnam holiday. Lovely old place steeped in history. Good breakfast buffet and roof top bar, albeit very expensive for Vietnam. Avoid the construction work on one side as it's very noisy. We had an internal room which was very quiet and spacious. Well located near central markets. Would choose it...

We enjoyed our 5 night stay at the Rex Hotel. As far as high quality for a very reasonable price, we rate this a 5. While this isn’t the 5-star luxury of the Park Hyatt, it also doesn’t have that price tag, and overall we liked this hotel for the true old-fashioned Saigon experience. The atmosphere was grand and historic...
