First Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I had such great experiences from airport pick up to drop off. The one thing I would suggest is replacing the bes lenins. My pillow cases had small holes. It looked and felt clean but it should be replaced for such good hotel.

Needed a place for two days while connecting with friends. The First Hotel was bigger and nicer than I had expected. Plenty of dining options in and around the hotel. I didn't see any Western style restaurants, but there Thai, Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese places. The hotel supper and breakfast buffets were both good.

Stayed for one night because of a early morning flight the next morning. I sent an email to the hotel with my reservation info as well as the flight information and I was picked up at the airport and taken to the hotel, free of charge. The morning breakfast buffet was quite nice. The hotel itself is situated in a quiet neighborhood of Saigon and there are a number of restaurants and shops right out of the front door of the hotel. I will definitely use this hotel for future trips to Saigon.

I stayed here only one night. This hotel is very close to the airport and extremely convenient. Check in was convenient as well. I strongly recommend this hotel for anyone arriving late in the city.

Nice place, nice from and to airport, have all facilities needed, good food, security is most perfect. We like here and be back here for sure.

Really nice hotel in great location. Was able to take Tuk-Tuk to town and wonderful breakfast in morning.

Hotel picked us up at the airport - the driver had a sign with our name and it was very easy. The check in was smooth. In the morning I had an early flight and the driver had a bagged breakfast for us. I would stay here again for an over night stay close to the airport.

Strongly recommended, nice staff, best location for transit, free shuttle to/from airport.

Great location for in and out of the airport. Their Japanese Restaurant was very good . Bellmen, lobby people were very helpful, especially for me who is hearing impaired. They knocked on my door to be sure I was awake each day.

Good option for a short stay. Staff is friendly and helpful. A welcome drink and a fruit plate are nice added value, as well as no charge for business center and wifi. The only setback is location if you want to be going to district 1 all the time, where most important touristic attractions are.

First of all, know this: the hotel DOES have airport service but ONLY if you email them prior to your arrival and provide your flight number. Otherwise, you need to take a taxi, which I did, and it was all of $3 with a $0.50 airport exit fee. My driver knew the hotel but it always helps to have a printout that a driver can look at. When I left the next morning, the hotel put me in a prepaid taxi back to the airport. The room was fine, comfortable, clean, It's really all you need for an overnight stay. The hotel is about a 10 minute taxi ride from the airport and is located in a hopping neighborhood, although I got in too late to go out and I've spent plenty of time hopping in HCMC! Sidenote: I had an early flight so I had to leave the hotel at 4 a.m. When I took the elevator down to the lobby the door opened to complete darkness. I thought I went to the wrong floor!!! Nope, everybody was just on siesta on the lounge sofas and they woke up and got me a taxi, but never turned a light on!! They did give me a little breakfast to go! Anyway, this is a fine choice for the purpose and a good price!

Quite far from district 1. About 20-30 minutes away. Hotel is in a nice and quiet area. And it is quite a big establishment.

Overall a great experience. Excellent service at all levels. Food great.

this was a great place to stay and had fun there too.

Excellent staff and we will go back again soon once we can fly out of Clark
