A true 5-star hotel

I stayed at the hotel during the Lunar New Year. The hotel is at a perfect location, right next to the New Year market. You get a nice view of the market from the balcony in the open area but do not hear any noise from the streets within the hotel. We stayed at the Rex Suite and it was spacious and nicely decorated. The last day of our stay was my birthday and a staff surprised me by bringing a birthday cake and a bouquet of flowers to our room the night before. Not only that, the next morning at breakfast, I received another surprise - a candle-lit dessert. I was really moved by the thoughtfulness and effort of the management/staff and will definitely stay at Rex again in my next visit to HCMC!

Average...

Not a 5 star hotel. Nice facilities, but terrible staff. Arrogant, and unhelpful. Hesitant to assist, never smiling, and always expecting a generous tip. Would not recommend.

Staff make the Hotel

The Duty Manager HoDacQuyen did a remarkable job making my stay wonderful. The street construction should have been a major impediment to having a positive but Quyen and his staff made recommendations on way to go and how to get inspire of the construction. The breakfast buffet was outstanding in terms of value and quality

a classic

Great location and two pools. While there is building for public transport in the area the cost for the hotel room was significantly discounted. A great place to stay with very friendly staff, good breakfast and a roof top bar that is hard to beat

Location will be fantastic after April 2015

The hotel is really good with staff that understands hospitality very well. Special thanks to Ms Dung that assisted us in an unfortunate incident that is non related to the hotel. New refurbished rooms are smaller however comfortable for 2. Location is actually great, but the construction for the new park is a bit of a pain. Priced affordable. Minor glitches in room air-conditioning however rectified despite 10 pm. Yes agreed hallways are pretty warm, but maybe their eco-friendly, as you are in your room and not in the hallway. ;)

What a wonderful hotel. Right in the middle of the city and walking distance to most locations of interest. The buffet breakfast was amazing and all the staff were so friendly. We had no negative comments for this hotel.

Centre of most things

Stayed here in Sept 2013. Dated but clean. Had some issues with booking online and thankfully had a print of booking as the reception didn't speak English very well. Buffet breakfast was good if included in rate as it was about $20US for a visitor. It was not very cool due to the terrible aircon. There wasn't even any aircon in the hallways. Trying to save power I guess. Was a decent stay. Not sure if I would return though.

Nice bar upstairs but very pricey for Vietnam. I guess that's what you would expect in a hotel though. Nice atmosphere with live music nevertheless.

Nostalgic hotel in the city centre

An overnight stay in Ho Chi Minh City on the way from Sydney to Hue. The public areas are 5* but the rooms more like 4*. Expensive by local standards but definitely not compared to Sydney! Friendly and helpful staff. Good pool and bar area on the roof

Taxis are really good in HCMC - very cheap and clean, they use the meter and do not demand tips. Just have an address in Vietnamese as English can be a problem
