One of Saigon's best known hotels
What we say:
One of Saigon's best known hotels, the venerable Rex Hotel is a rambling affair bringing together the best and the not-so-best of Vietnamese hospitality and hotel facilities. Many US officers were billeted here during the American war, and their daily press conferences — known as the Five O'Clock foibles — were held on the hotel's spacious terrace bar. Today the hotel retains a somewhat quirky charm, delivered with a generous dose of rattan and beaded curtains throughout. One of the highlights is the unashamedly over-the-top rooftop garden with its somewhat tatty bar, the hotel's epicentre of kitsch. It's certainly not to be missed — though luckily you don't need to stay in the Rex to experience it. With the recent completion of a new wing and renovations of the existing hotel, the Rex recently achieved five-star status. With 70 new rooms, a swimming pool, an executive floor and meeting rooms, and a drop in prices it is beginning to lure some of some of the business crowd away from the Hyatt, Caravelle and Sheraton.
