Old time grandeur with all the modern comforts

"There's this place I would love to go to again, I was here 20 years ago so I'm not sure how nice it will be but it means a lot to me if we can stay there…" that's what my dad said, looking a bit sheepish as he was worried about whether the Rex hotel might not be the same as he remembers - a lot can change in 20 years.

He had absolutely nothing to worry about though because the Rex Hotel was absolutely wonderful! Voted by our family the best placed we stayed out during our entire stay (other than the Halong Bay Cruise, that was in a category of its own). But in saying this, it's a huge compliment as all the places that we stayed at, as picked by Vietnam Unique Tours, were great and top-notch.

Located in District 1, downtown Ho Chi Minh, the Rex Hotel is a heritage place in itself – the perfect mix of classic, old time grandeur with all the modern comforts a hotel of this day and age can offer.

Within easy walking distance to the main 'District 1' sites like the Ben Thanh Markets, Golden Dragon Water Puppet Theatre Reunification Palace, Opera House, People's Committee building, Notre Dame Cathedral and Central Post Office. There are several little cafes and interesting shops around the Hotel.

While its located is right in the heart of busting city, once you enter you are immediately transported to a quiet and serene place. There's a beautiful courtyard and vertical garden in the center of the hotel, a surprise to connect you back to nature away from that 'city feeling'.

The rooms are large and spacious, we stayed in a governor suite, and treated ourselves to a bubble bath, and room service (the food was great!). The buffet breakfast had an extensive location and a great treat to wake up to.

All in all, if you're looking for world class service, spacious and comfortable rooms, and somewhere near to all the sites of Ho Chi Minh, the Rex Hotel is the place to go.
