There is something iconic about the Rex Hotel and the roof garden bar is perhaps the best place to sample it. We were not at our tidiest as we ventured in to this classical five star hotel from a hot and sweaty Union Square but we were greeted by the doorman without reservation and accompanied to the top floor.

Stayed in Ho Chi Minh City for 5 days-not at the Rex, but wanted to visit the rooftop bar at the Rex for it's historical significance-it was where the foreign correspondents used to meet for the Five o'clock Follies during the Vietnam war. It's really not worth it. Service indifferent. Lighting harsh. No ambience at all. Avoid.

Nice hotel in a spectacular location. I stayed in one of their suites and it was pretty well equipped and very spacious, perfect for hosting friends and other guests. The hotel is located within walking distance to Vincom Mall which has plenty of eateries but there are much better choices dotted around the streets. On the topic of food, I...

For our 3 night stay the location was perfect. The suite was good, 2 rooms and everything what you need in it. Good bed. Nice terrace restaurant in the top. Breakfast was not 5 star quality. Hotel needs face lif to stay 5 star. Service was Ok, but front desk was slow.

The hotel is well located near major local attractions. Mostly within 20mins walk. The furnishings are good. Staff speak adequate English. But sometimes there are conflicting instructions. Eg. because it's near Lunar New Year, one staff told us the complimentary water puppet show on the hotel ground was cancelled. However, when I checked with another staff later that day, I...
