We booked this hotel for a stopover at HCM airport due to its proximity and reviews. The Hotel and the staff were fantastic. Our flight was delayed, so we were greeted at the arrivals and ushered to a taxi. The driver knew where to go and the hotel paid for it on our arrival. Cars doors were opened, luggage carried...

This is an ideal hotel if you are taking another flight the next day. Transfers to and from the airport are included in your booking and this can be a relief rather than negotiating the crazy traffic in Vietnam for the first time. Rooms are nice although the noise from the air-conditioning could wake the dead and a good breakfast...

For just one night if you have an early connection and want to be close to airport this is a good choice. This was one of the nicer hotel rooms I had over my 15 nights away. This is an unusual set up for a hotel and spread over two sides of the road. There is a choice of four...

The hotel is a bit ordinary even in the new wing. Its the staff that keep us coming back. They are so friendly and helpful with good local knowledge that I always suggest to people going to HCMC for the first time a pick up from the First Hotel and a couple of nights stay is a great introduction to...

If you want to stay nearby Tan San Nhat airport, the hotel is the good choice. With the large car parking area surrounding with small park and complex of restaurant, swimming pool and big building for conference/ wedding, it is the best choice for group of friends to stay there. The rooms are quite large, clean with good service. The...

Despite our flight being delayed we were warmly greeted by a representative of the hotel. We were driven to the hotel in a new Mercedes car. We were very tired and to our relief the book in was quick. The next morning we left early before breakfast but were offered a snack box. The breakfast restaurant is just opposite the...

We found the hotel staff lovely and friendly and the room spotless and welcoming. The pick up was quick from the airport with a big sign with your name on! We were confused with the hotel being in 2 parts with the swimming pool being across the road... we were also surprised to find out that they own most buildings...

My husband and I stayed one night, flying into HCM in the late afternoon and out the next morning. We booked the hotel to proximity to the airport, and the hotel arranged free airport transfers. An English speaking bellman met us right outside of baggage claim and off we went to the hotel in a late model Mercedes! The hotel...

We have traveled to several countries around the world and we could say the following for the First Hotel: It is very convenient and closed to the Airport. The hotel provides round trip to and from the Airport. The taxi is few steps away when you want to visit the first district. The hotel staffs are very friendly, attentive, and...
