The room was clean and comfortable. Swimming pool clean, very good breakfast friendly staff as well. There have some restaurants we can setup private party also very fresh seafood, fish, shrimp still alive. I love it a lot. special one with Ms. Lan help me all her heart. For me this is the best hotel in Saigon.

We needed a hotel for a one night stopover in Ho Chi Minh and chose First Hotel mainly due to its proximity to the airport and other reviews. I phoned the day before to ask about the free shuttle and gave them our flight details. Just as well as they actually sent a car. Our plane was an hour and... More

We chose this hotel for its location close to the airport and included free transfers. Good - Arrivals in Ho Chi Minh airport is completely manic - having a friendly face picking us up (without the stress of being ripped off) was brilliant. Drop off was also on time. The concierge guys were all really friendly. The breakfast was very... More

Didn't enjoy our experience here at all, the rooms are very tired and small! The best part was being close to the airport!!! But next time I will stay further to get a better property/ room to stay in!!!! It's about 15 minutes from airport, they do provide a pick up and drop off service but again it's not enough... More

It's nice enough hotel that was clearly renovated in the past views years to be updated. The staff was also very helpful. I would have reviewed it higher had we not made the mistake of going to the spa... The hotel spa massively brings the hotels reputation down because it's very clearly a brothel. It just makes the hotel look... More

Stayed here just for over a night between two flights. The hotel is 10mins max from the airport, which makes it convenient stop to rest. The hotel offers airport shuttle service. The staff was extremely kind. The breakfast was surprisingly good.

Close to the airport so no dramas with traffic jams. Pleasant staff and most helpful doormen. Free shuttle bus to and from airport. Best buffet breakfast that compares well with the upmarket 5 star hotels. Easy taxi ride into the hustle and bustle of central Saigon, tours, money exchange, helpful tips and advice and a great pool across the road... More

Staff were friendly and helpful, room was large and nicely appointed, a great place to stay on initial arrival, to recover from extended flight. A little ways off the beaten path. Nice way to get introduced into HCMC, the traffic can be overwhelming for first time visitors.

Very close to airport. Walkable if only one knew the way, but there is airport pick up and drop off. I had an early flight and the hotel prepared a carry away breakfast for me. Rooms are nice. A bit far from the major attractions of Ho Chi Minh so probably best as an "airport" hotel. I stayed twice, before... More
