Great time when I was staying at the Rex, but there was a lot of construction going on outside. Delicious buffet breakfast every morning. I was sorry to leave there.

There is some night life near the hotel, but if you walk to Pham Ngu Lau , it is cheaper there.

Old World Charm

The Rex is a special hotel with its history and old world charm. It is not as fancy or glitzy as some newer properties but it is unique. The fact that it not an international chain but that is run by Vietnamese helps make it unique. The rooms are quite comfortable with a nice bathroom and a comfortable bed. The breakfast was very good with the noodle station being fantastic. The gym was nice although the locker room is a bit dated. The service was excellent. The only negative is that the construction of the new subway is happening right in front of the hotel.

Great hotel but wasnt made aware of the major works going on next to the hotel!!!

Enjoyed the hotel but was dissapointed not to have been told about the major construction of a subway next door. Was noisy, not easy to get to hotel on foot and made it difficult and very busy to be collected by car. I would not have stayed here if i would have known.

Great location and value

The staff was very friendly and helpful. They all spoke English so language wasn't an issue. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The tours provided by the hotel are excellent though a little pricey. The tour guide was very knowledgeable of the history and information on all aspects of Vietnam. The driver was very careful and drove us safely to our destinations. Great experience!

relaxing

I stayed at this hotel with my family and we really enjoyed it. However there were some disapointments. For example the breakfast buffet was under par and the hotel room could only have two computers connected to the wifi at a time eventhough it was a room for a party of three.
