Hotel room was amazing spacious everything you could ask for. Lovely showers. The hospitality here was outstanding and i think that says so much for the hotel - the way they care for their guests should always be priority and here it certainly was. Breakfast at this hotel was amazing, lovely omelettes quite a wide range of food Would 100%... More

As we were there during "no-party" time, i chose this first bc i thought this hotel had a good location, but no! Staff was bad, they looked tired and didnt even want to smile, our first room was a standard one, cheap so it was terrible, hard n dirty bed, noisy AC, then we asked to pay more to upgrade... More

My favorite aspect about this place is its location. Koh Samui is a very busy island. Though the fun is in the center where all the shopping and dining is, you don't want to stay there where it doesn't feel like an actual oasis or vacation. This spot was well away from the touristy area but close enough to visit... More

Booked this hotel for 3 nights. During 1 night changed the room 4!!!! times. Be aware of insects in your bed. Only fourth room was without insects. In the morning I wanted to make a refund of 2 nights but they refused. Everything very very old in the hotel. No shelves in the wardrobe. The only good point is location... More

We visited First House Hotel early in August and would definitely recommend it if you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel which is really close to an awesome beach with many restaurants within easy walking distance on the beach. I would recommend a Deluxe Room as the Standard Rooms are in the old part of the hotel and across... More

The room was dirty, there were black smears on the walls and the bathroom had mould on the ceiling. They gave us a Queen instead of two singles and asked us to change the next day. By the time the next day came along we had already unpacked our backpacks and didn't want to have to repack them so we... More

The good parts are the location and the pool, being practically right on the beach was nice, and the pool was nice and clean but the room was not as nice, it felt really old and plain with a tv that struggled for reception.
