Great place away from the hustle and bustle. The host will rent you a scooter if you choose and the area is quite small. So even if you just taxi around transport is not a problem. It is not close to the tourist spots which is great because they're all only a 10 min ride/taxi away. Noise is a slight problem as the apartment is situated next to a major road and people like to use their horns in vietnam. But it wasnt a problem for me as i sleep through anything. All in all i was glad to not be near the tourist centre
First House 1 was a lovely room for us to stay in: clean, simple white furniture with everything we needed like super fast wifi, a/c, beverages in the fridge with very reasonable prices, instant noodle, etc. First House 1 is located on Nguyen An Ninh which is close to famous eating and shopping streets like Ba Cu, Hoang Hoa Tham, Lottemart, etc. It's 5 mins ride to the beach. The only minus point is the noise from the big street (motorbikes, cars, honking) that was annoying to us at night. Anyway, Dung's mother was very nice and kind to us. She was willing to give us raincoat when it was about to rain and even asked us to stay for a while until the rain was gone. And Dung is friendly and helpful. He was always ready to reply to my questions regarding the stay. I'd recommend First House and will come back.
First house is a great place for those who want to stay away from the crowd. However it is closed enough to the beach (3min by bike) and also to any restaurants nearby. We arrived early than check in time and still the host was so nice, and kept saying apology for not promptly prepared the place for us. I would love to come back again next time! Cheers!
