We booked two rooms at First hotel as I wanted to be near the airport. That is probably the only good thing about this hotel, they provide a free shuttle service to and from the airport which is only five minutes away. The staff in the hotel reception are very friendly and welcoming. If I had paid little money for... More

We stayed here for 1 night on a stopover between flights. We were collected at the airport (free transfer service) and welcomed by friendly staff at the hotel. Our room was modern, clean and great value. The only down-side was the food. A little over-priced (to be expected from an airport hotel) and lacking in flavour, but it filled the... More

We decided to have a night here on the last night of our trip to relax by the pool before flying back to the UK. Big mistake. The hotel is across the road from the main hotel on a big complex. When we got to the pool it was chaos. There was around 40 staff members walking around, looking likw... More

This hotel is situated close to airport and exhibitioncenter. Staff is doing what ever you can imagine to make your stay convenient. Free drinks, free airport pick up by taxi, tips for town visits, they even help you crossing the street to the restaurant. Hotel is a bit old but clean. Breakfast fine. Half an our by taxi to downtown.

I've been blocked in HCMC then I tried this hotel ... value for mont is good, you are closer to the airport than to district 1, then make sense if you are in transit. Rooms are spacious, I appreciated complimentary shuttle at 4,30 AM; at that time breakfast was not available but they gave us a box without asking.

The place was very nice and staff were very friendly. Buffet breakfast the next morning was delicious. Very happy with this hotel for a short stay, it's pretty quiet too away from the hustle and bustle.
