          Nice hotel, situated at the south of Chaweng Beach: far enough to avoid the noisy area, but close enough to walk. The beach is at 5 minutes walk, however you should also go to try the beaches from Lamai. The room was big and clean, with a decent balcony. As they promised, the staff provided daily drinking water, coffee and tea (to do it yourself) for free. The breakfast was delicious (if I remember well, i had a fried egg, ham, fresh juice, toast with butter and jam, fresh fruits: papaya and watermelon). The wifi wasn't free in the room, but they had 3 PCs at the reception with free internet access (usable up to 23 o clock). The swimming pool was clean and we swam a couple of times, but the don't have (or turn on) the jacuzzi as I though they will.

          The bathroom was modern, but not really new (there where chalk stains on the sink, the shower was a little rusty), however it was nice and clean. The water temperature changed sometimes during the shower from warm to cold, but this happened to me at almost all hotels in Thailand.

          I liked the location, near to malls and city night life. The personnel was friendly.

          The airco was old and very noisy.

          I have stayed in this hotel twice now. I think it is a great location as it is on the quite side of chaweng but only a 10-15 walk to the centre of chaweng or £1 in a taxi. The staff are so friendly and nice and will help you. The rooms are big but the only thing that might put you of is there is a smell in the bathroom due to drains. Great swimming pool which is always quite. I go to Samui 3 times a year and will always stay at this hotel for the price and its inly a 2 min walk away from the beach

        • Couple

          Good pool. Not too far from the beach but not in the main area of Chaweng. We moved onto a beach side resort for another £9 per night, which included breakfast. Location really let this place down. Hotel was clean and well maintained. Toilet a bit smelly in room.

        • Couple
          7.8

          Rooms are huge for the area staff very helpful and polite nice swimmingpool

          They charged us for a nights stay on my credit card even tho we paid in full in cash.

          The bedroom itself was clean and comfortable, however the bathroom smelled absolutely awful and no amount of febreeze could remedy that. There are computers and free wi-fi.

          The reception up front was super sketch. We were looking to book a ferry to Koh Phangan for the full moon party and told us we had to book with this specific company (for a high price) because everything else was fully booked. We took our chances and went to an agency and easily found another way around. Other examples, similar results. Did I mention the bathroom really smelled?

          My friends and I enjoyed our stay at First Residence Hotel.The things we liked: 1. Cleaning service. 2. Staff: hospitable, willing to help and HONEST! We lost 200$ in the hotel but we thought that we had lost it outside while riding a motorbike. That's why we didn't ask the staff whether they had found it. But to our suprise the manager told us that a maid had found it and they gave our money back! Thank you once again!!! 3. Swimming pool is awesome: nice depth, clean water. Beach is quite near, only 3-5 min walk.

        • Group of friends
          6.2

          Staff were friendly and always willing to help

          The location was not exactly near the central chaweng strip. This meant a daily taxi ride to the centre.
