Rex hotel is centrally located and offers both history and charm. Service was excellent throughout our stay. Rooms are clean and spacious; dark timber wood and finishing’s typical to mid-high traditional lodgings in South East Asia; admittedly we did upgrade to the Governor Suite for extra comfort. Meals were outstanding; great BF selection and service. Roof top bar provides atmosphere and a live band in the evenings. Hotel features a water puppet show as a cultural experience. Hotel lobby boasts a cigar lounge and collection. Plethora of restaurants, minimarts and sightseeing within walking distance.
Cons: non-smokers ensure you request a non-smoking room/floor; outdated carpets and layout of hotel.
Otherwise overall excellent stay; would hppily return to this hotel.More
