First Residence Hotel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The property is too good and near the seawang beach. The staff is too cooperative. Room is clean but the locking system of rooms is not exact. And when I told to hotel staff that I check out at early morning at 6am, they gave me sandwich, juice and 5.45 am, that's the very best service they gave me. And stay there is as our home.

Stayed for 3 nights, was great budget accomodation. The rooms are clean, large and airconditioned. I did eat breakfast one of the days there, however there weren't many options so decided to walk down the road to another resort for breakfast the other days. The hotel is quiet, and is located on the quiet end of Chaweng. If you want to be right in the middle of the hustle and bustle, this hotel isn't for you. I did try to walk into the main town one of the days but gave up half way. The beach is close and staff are really friendly.

We stayed here for 11 nights, the hotel itself is lovely, it's what it says "budget luxury". The rooms were clean and spacious with good wifi and much needed air conditioning! The only problem we found with the room was the state of the towels and bedding, a lot of the ones we got had holes in or were very frayed (a small detail but one that could easily be remedied). The staff were very friendly and helpful, we asked for an extra mattress topper and this was brought straight away. The private beach is picture perfect and only a five minute walk away. If you could pick the hotel up and place it closer to the strip I would have given it five stars.

the room was good but the location and the breakfast wasn't good. we have to take a taxi to everywhere we want to go and its a little far from ark bar and downtown.we stayed there for 2 nights. well if i want to go to samui again i will choose a hotel near to ark bar and downtown .

I stayed for two weeks this past February, it was excellent! Totally comfortable and safe. The AC was awesome, and the wifi was very strong. Very friendly staff. The room was clean and perfect for budget travel. I met very other guests that were super nice. I would highly recommend!

The stuff is very friendly and trying to help all the time. However, the rooms need urgent maintenance. The AC in 2 of our rooms was leaking, rust on the taps and some of the towels were torn. The pictures were probably taken at the first days of the hotel. In addition, the hotel is very far from the center and you need to take a taxi (50 bath per person) or walk about 20 min to get there. I personally rethink if to stay there again.

This is a nice hotel in a great location. The hotel pool is nice, however could do with a few more sun loungers. But great for a dip after a day out in the sun! The hotel is very clean, with the room being cleaned and fresh towels every day. Our bathroom smelt a little when the ventilation fan was on, therefore we just kept it turned off, and the problem was solved. The air conditioning can be a bit loud as well as the road outside the front, but nothing that stopped us from sleeping! Would definitely recommend this hotel to those on a budget :)

Absolutely delighted with this splendid little hotel. Suitable for all types of group. Families, even stags (we weren't on a stag do, but we might as well have been ;-) Lovely staff. Thanks for making our stay an absolute pleasure.

The hotel located on the quieter side of Chaweng Beach which suited my preference. You can find anything you need surround the hotel. Motorbike rental, laundry, restaurants, food marts, dive center and the list goes on. The staff very friendly and some of the well converse in English. The rooms is good size, very clean and well kept. Hòwever the bed is hard to my preference. That is the only negative part.

Hotel is on the end of Chaweng beach, however it is quite busy with all the restaurants and hotels in the area. Staff is very helpfull and skilled. Rooms are spacious and very clean. We stayed on the forth (top floor) and the noise from the street was not bad. Hotel has access to private beach which is excellent (about 700 meters from hotel).
