Stayed for one night in August 2016. The main draw card was the price and in my case the location as I had a meeting nearby. When comparing prices, you must consider that airport shuttling is included in the First Hotel's price. I was picked up at the airport by a guy holding a sign with my name, and put... More

The location is one of the best things. Hotel is old and quite run down. My room had the water temperature in the shower varying by 25c, it is dangerous. Amenities such as bar area are very limited which makes this not the best choice for a business hotel. The staff are excellent and arranged a hotel car to airport... More

Excellent staff that's very helpful. The hotel is a bit worn but everything works and our room was clean, very quiet and spacious. The breakfast buffet has everything you need, both as a western guest and as an Asian, highly recommended. The hotel offers transport to and from the airport which I highly recommend that you use so you don't... More

Nice hotel, near the airport. Friendly staff, good breakfast buffet, and they have an airport shuttle. We arrived late but the staff were helpful and they gave us a late check-out as well. The lobby has good seating if you have to wait for a late flight - much better than spending the time at the airport.

We were there just for one night waiting for our plane next day. They pick up at the airport that is not faraway from the city and the hotel. Very warm welcome when arriving. We were upgraded. The room is spacious. The furniture is old but still ok. Some stains in the carpet. We eat at the buffet restaurant of... More

We stayed at this hotel as my family and I needed somewhere to stay after flying into Ho Chi Minh late one night before flying off to Danang the next morning. The room was of a high standard (in the new wing) and the price was very good, considering there were two adults and two small children in that room.... More

Our suite was top class and the staff made us feel very welcome. They had very good English which helped us with minimal Vietnamese. They helped us with their language.The restaurant for breakfasts covered all types of food.

The driver from the hotel waited for us even though we were over an hour late and did not arrive until about 11:30. Obviously we were grateful. The room was nice and clean and the staff accommodating.
