Having been denied access to our flight, the airline (who will remain nameless) offered to compensate us, due to their error, by footing the bill at First Hotel for two nights. They informed us that this venue was a four star hotel.
The hotel is situated on a busy roundabout approximately 15 minutes from Ho Chi Minh City airport, which for an overnight business trip would be ideal. The hotel was clean and the staff accommodating, although their English somewhat limited.
Although the room was small and the bathroom even smaller, it also was clean and the bed comfortable.
The food was, in my opinion, not what I would expect from a four star hotel, neither was the fact that although the hotel advertises that certain elements of the venue are located in its wings, suggesting a much grander building than what was. When in actual fact you had to exit the main building and cross an extremely busy road in order to access the swimming pool, restaurants, spa and fitness centre. Again, not what I expected of a four star hotel.
Having experienced the pool area, although the pool itself looked very well maintained, the surrounding area appeared grubby and in need of refreshing.
In conclusion, this hotel is ideal for a one night layover for the businessman. I cannot comment on the conference rooms, which it said were available for hire, as I did not experience these first hand.
