We were 4 adults and 3 teenagers spending one night at the hotel. We came from Copenhagen via Bangkok on our way to Phu Quoc. The hotel provides a free shuttle to the airport that worked perfect. They picked us up at the airport before lunchtime and our 3 rooms were already accessable. All staff members were very friendly and... More

Stayed here for last part of my trip in VN. Definitely a 3 star small hotel that is not international grade. Stayed in the best room - Executive Suite in the First wing which is the newer wing. Room itself was good size, nice marble bathroom, comfortable bed and interesting art. However look and feel of the furniture reminded me... More

Although our flight was delayed and it took nearly an hour to get our visa, we were met by a smiling young man who had waited to collect us at the airport-all part of the excellent service provided by the hotel. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and comfortable, with all the amenities you could... More

The location was near to TBECC where we have exhibition over there. Free WiFi with great coverage and no lost connection issue. Room is comfortable, breakfast is good, provide free shuttle to and from airport. Easy to get cab and go to other places, plenty of convenient stores and restaurants surround. Fast check in and check out.

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

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
