A gorgeous hotel in a prime location of the city. Even if you don't plan to stay at this hotel it is worth visiting for architectural picture purposes. A beautiful art deco designed building within a great location of the city. The City Hall is right across the street and another amazing architectural place for photographs. This area is worth walking around and enjoying.

A luxurious and historical hotel located in the heart of HCMC, it has the best views of the city (head on over to the rooftop bar).

I stayed at the Rex last Spring at the start and end of my trip. It's in a great location that is very central to many attractions and the main city itself. Walking distance to plenty. Please note, Saigon is a very diverse city. The Rex is located in what would be the equivalent of Manhattan's 5th Avenue. However most of the city is a bit run down, though I found it to be pretty safe.It's a beautiful hotel with a huge rooftop with great views. Plus on top of that it has two other rooftop sections with pools! It also has a great Spa where I am a phenomenal message and it has a number of good restaurants. The service was great and it has a lot of personality and Vietnamese flavor to it. The rooms are nice size and well done and the lobby is is huge and beautiful. The staff was great and very helpful. Highly recommended.

The Rex Hotel is a famous hotel in Vietnam that was infamously bombed during the Vietnam War. Today, it has rebuilt and refurbished itself as a swanky hotel in the ritzy section of Saigon. The balcony has the Rex Bar, which has a band playing popular American music every night. Also, make sure you order cafe sua da.

I didn't actually stay here, but I did enjoy a drink at the rooftop bar while a live band played. T'was a magical night! If you're looking for something to do after dark but don't feel like raging, this is a great option.

What an amazing view of Saigon from the Rex Hotel Bar at the very top of the hotel! This was the first American built hotel in Vietnam, and was where the American Military held press conferences almsot daily during the Vietnam War. Also, this was the nerve center for the American CIA during those war years.

Went onto the roof top bar for a beer. This building is a national treasure as an example of Art Deco and of course its notoriety as the headquarters of the CIA during the Vietnam War.
