3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The rooms were very small and I would say it is the smallest deluxe room I ever stayed. No much facilities in the room and they didn't even provide remote control for the TV. Only thing I liked about this hotel is that check in and check out can be made in the automated machines.

For a hotel having 5000 rooms, quality of service is always going to be questionable.The rooms are tiny and very basic, almost absent service but the worst part is the absolutely miserable quality of food served.I am yet to come across such tasteless(read: raw) food in Malaysia, where food is generally very good. On the bright side, the hotel is... More

Genting theme park was our destination. This hotel is built atop the mountain and is next to the theme park. First impression - it's huge in size! This was the first time where I saw long queues and token system to reach the reception desk and then check-in. Mindboggling! Then the rooms were a bit of a disappointment. The tiny... More

I got a complimentary deluxe room for two nights as a new Genting member. I checked in late at night after 11pm and the check-in process was OK. I needed to take a ticket to wait to be served. If it's before 11pm, the check-in can be done with the self-serviced kiosk. The check-in staff didn't ask what room type... More

Our room is facing at the theme park which has a good view.. The rooms are really big... Lower floor has a lot of casino so you will not get bored when the park is closed. A 5 star hotel thats not so expensive

We were living in the new block which had cigarette smells at night. The pipes in the toilet were leaking so the floor was constantly wet and had a strange odour to it. However breakfast was good and room was generally clean. All in all, reasonable for the kind of price we paid for.

Decided to spend my weekend at Genting Highland. Booked the First World Hotel via online on 8th Jan 15 and manage to get a hotel room for 9th Jan.
