The hotel is quite close to the airport. I am not sure if it qualified as a 4-star standard. Nevertheless it is good value. Customer service is good and complementary breakfast was worth it. I would check out Korean and Japanese restaurants nearby.

The room is too small. The service is bad. The food is the same for everyday. I booked rooms for my guest from 23/12 to 28/12 but the hotel asked my guest to check out @ 25 - in middle of their event schedule. And Sale department didn't provide me things that they've promised. But there's still some receptionist like...

Thank you for your comment. FYI, our hotel has been full for a long term in this very busy and crazy December. We already sent the confirmation of only one night for this booking prior to guests check in. Perhaps you did not read that email. Obviously that we would try our best to find out another rooms for you,...

Stayed overnight at the First Hotel between flights from Siem Reap to Narita. Checked in around midnight. Staff were friendly. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Nothing fancy. Left on the hotel shuttle at 5am to the airport. Trip to the airport took less than 10 mins.

The First Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City was the first hotel I stayed at in Vietnam. I had a late arriving flight, and it took about an hour for my visa to be stamped at the airport. Upon leaving the airport a young gentleman was awaiting for me for my free ride to the hotel. It was nearly 1...

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...

Dear Heidi Thank you for your sharing experience during your stay at our hotel. As you can see, our hotel had a long-term history, and the construction was like it had been from the beginning.
