I don't know what all of the negativity is about, this hotel ticked all the boxes when it came to comfort, service and a nice quiet place to stay for business and and a bit of r & r. My #1 tip for fellow travellers is that when you stay you must eat at a little restaurant literally across the...

In transit from Ho Chi Minh City to Phnom Penh, the Phnom Penh flight was cancelled and I was looking at 24 hours in the airport because I didn't have a visa to stay in Vietnam. Vietnam Air negotiated with the police to take me to a hotel to stay for the night. I was taken to the First Hotel...

I wish I could give 3.5, because the staff was very service-oriented and did a great job. However, the overall experience was just short of "very good" so I couldn't give a 4. The property was a bit confusing, because we pulled up to two buildings across the street from each other with the same name on them. I wasn't...

I was excited to visit this hotel, but I was dissappointed at the end, the hotel is far away from4 star, if I'm polite I'd give maximum 3. The room is average size, the bathroom is frustrating, the breakfast is very simple, quite far from downtown.

I had a very good experience. My arriving flight had been delayed by 2 hours, but the airport pickup was waiting for me at the exit. I was heartily welcomed at the hotel (even received a welcome drink). Room was spacious, clean and with AC. I had an early flight to catch next morning and was dropped off at 5.30...

We only stayed one one as it turned out, but we had such a great experience. After a long overnight train trip from Da Nang (hard beds...!!), we arrived at First Hotel about 7am in the morning. Great breakfast, so many choices. Then we were pleasantly surprised when management checked us in early, incredible! We got a nap in before...

Hotel was nice. I would recommend especially for price. More of a 3 than 4 star. Note. Menu price for body and foot massage service was 290,000 VN. But when I went to get massage they failed to note that they would charge tip on top of that fee. Making total cost over 500,000 VN. That's outrageous. Go into the...

Welcomed at the airport by super friendly staff. Private car transfer. Quick checkin to room. Great room, large, nice bathroom. Ordered very cheap room service & it was delicious - fried seafood rice & spring rolls. Great peaceful night sleep. Lovely buffet in the morning - heaps of choices. Once again, friendly helpful staff. I asked the hotel to confirm...
