The rooms are lovely and comfortable - reasonable for what they charge - and the free airport shuttle service makes it good value. Just be warned though that you have to cross the road which is a main Street to go to a separate building for breakfast, and in another separate building is the pool etc. so if like me... More

Stayed here for one night. Really helpful staff. Complimentary airport transfer and breakfast. Not as well English speaking as district 1. We were looking for a more authentic experience and definitely got it..possibly a bit of a shock at first after staying in district 1. Taxi into district one about 100,000 dong. Close to airport. Maybe a touch confusing for... More

I was visiting HCMC for two weeks to have some dental surgery and to do a little sight seeing. As my stay was a reasonably long one, I chose to stay out of the centre away from the manic traffic. The First Hotel was such a lucky choice. It is spacious and so quiet and yet is only a 20... More

Reasonably priced. Free transport back to the airport. Restaurant had decent pho. Friendly staff. Room was adequate for a one night stay. Location was a local neighbourhood so not much touristy stuff. Good for a quick overnight stay.

The hotel is great for an airport stop. Its clean, with good facilities. We found that the staff spoke little to no english, which i think is poor in a large city hotel. Basically we got the feeling they didn't cater for westerners whatsoever. The hotel restaurant staff we found quite rude, and not very attentive at all. In a... More

We were picked up and returned to the airport, plus had a free breakfast and a clean, comfortable room, for only $85 AUSTRALIAN. Could not fault the efficiency of the staff. It was a convenient one night stop on the way to Da Nang. Reception area is very grand and french style.
