“The Rex Hotel is a famous luxury and business hotel in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam.
The 230 room five story building is located in the District 1, close by to the Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica and the Municipal Theatre. In 2003 the Rex Hotel underwent an extension and renovation including architecture, interior design and engineering services provided by Archetype Group.
Rex Hotel is owned by the state-owned Saigon Tourist.
Built in 1927 for M. Bainier during French colonial rule in Vietnam, the building started out as a two story auto dealership/garage complex called Bainier Auto Hall. The building showcased Citroen and other European cars. From 1959 to 1975, Mr. and Mrs. Ung Thi renovated the building into a 100 room Rex Complex hotel with three cinemas, a cafeteria, a dance hall and a library.” (Fuente del texto y más información en Rex Hotel [en línea : enciclopedia] Wikipedia <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rex_Hotel,_Ho_Chi_Minh_City> [consultado el 24/11/2010])
