Stayed at the First a few years back when our itinerary left us with a lay day before our flight out of Vietnam. We remembered the hotel as a good choice and it has been improved over the last 5 years. We stayed over the road in the new section which was fine. The executive room was large and well... More

The hotel is only a10 minute drive away from the airport of which the hotel provides free transfers. The rooms were really nicely decorated with dark wooden furniture. Ate in the hotel restaurant with was lovely and good... More

I don't know what all of the negativity is about, this hotel ticked all the boxes when it came to comfort, service and a nice quiet place to stay for business and and a bit of r & r. My #1 tip for fellow travellers is that when you stay you must eat at a little restaurant literally across the... More

In transit from Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Penh, the Phnom Penh flight was cancelled and I was looking at 24 hours in the airport because I didn't have a visa to stay in Vietnam. Vietnam Air negotiated with the police to take me to a hotel to stay for the night. I was taken to the First Hotel... More

I wish I could give 3.5, because the staff was very service-oriented and did a great job. However, the overall experience was just short of "very good" so I couldn't give a 4. The property was a bit confusing, because we pulled up to two buildings across the street from each other with the same name on them. I wasn't... More

I was excited to visit this hotel, but I was dissappointed at the end, the hotel is far away from4 star, if I'm polite I'd give maximum 3. The room is average size, the bathroom is frustrating, the breakfast is very simple, quite far from downtown.

I had a very good experience. My arriving flight had been delayed by 2 hours, but the airport pickup was waiting for me at the exit. I was heartily welcomed at the hotel (even received a welcome drink). Room was spacious, clean and with AC. I had an early flight to catch next morning and was dropped off at 5.30... More

We only stayed one one as it turned out, but we had such a great experience. After a long overnight train trip from Da Nang (hard beds...!!), we arrived at First Hotel about 7am in the morning. Great breakfast, so many choices. Then we were pleasantly surprised when management checked us in early, incredible! We got a nap in before... More
