My husband and I stayed one night, flying into HCM in the late afternoon and out the next morning. We booked the hotel to proximity to the airport, and the hotel arranged free airport transfers. An English speaking bellman met us right outside of baggage claim and off we went to the hotel in a late model Mercedes! The hotel...

We have traveled to several countries around the world and we could say the following for the First Hotel: It is very convenient and closed to the Airport. The hotel provides round trip to and from the Airport. The taxi is few steps away when you want to visit the first district. The hotel staffs are very friendly, attentive, and...

This hotel is amazing for its location and value for money. For what it is worth, you cannot ask for more. Staffs were obliging to our needs. Airport pick up is an added bonus. Beds were clean and comfortable. You will not be disappointed.

The hotel is quite close to the airport. I am not sure if it qualified as a 4-star standard. Nevertheless it is good value. Customer service is good and complementary breakfast was worth it. I would check out Korean and Japanese restaurants nearby.

The room is too small. The service is bad. The food is the same for everyday. I booked rooms for my guest from 23/12 to 28/12 but the hotel asked my guest to check out @ 25 - in middle of their event schedule. And Sale department didn't provide me things that they've promised. But there's still some receptionist like...

Thank you for your comment. FYI, our hotel has been full for a long term in this very busy and crazy December. We already sent the confirmation of only one night for this booking prior to guests check in. Perhaps you did not read that email. Obviously that we would try our best to find out another rooms for you,...

Stayed overnight at the First Hotel between flights from Siem Reap to Narita. Checked in around midnight. Staff were friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy. Left on the hotel shuttle at 5am to the airport. Trip to the airport took less than 10 mins.
