My friends and I stayed in First World Saigon Hotel on our last night of our trip. We are very satisfy with the services and the hotel rooms which is what we are expecting from a 5-stars hotel and the among we paid.
The location of the Hotel is also great as it is well within walking distance to the night markets and some attractions. The surrounding area are also full of shops, stores and restaurants. The Starbucks store right behind the hotel is 1 of the most cosy and well design Starbucks store I ever visited. So do drop-by if you are staying there.
The only complain we have is the lack of breakfast in our room package (about $125 USD per room per night). And upon check-in, we are told if we would like to pay $60 USD for a welcome drink and breakfast. Which in our opinion is extremely expensive. I thought a welcome drink from a 5-star hotel is a MUST free of charge?
