First World truly is an amazing hotel. The trip up there reminds me of heading up to the Alps or Snowy Mountains in Australia, with the road being even more winding. It's very systematic upon arrival, and l had no trouble getting directions at the airport for the bus to Genting, then an easy transfer to the hotel itself. It... More

Purpose of this traveling is for Emil... More

Been to this hotels lots of times, but first time to write review for this hotel. Strategic location, cheap, easy access is the word I can describe for this hotel. Choose the mountain view, and if you got the back you'll end up hearing generator machine for whole day. If you want a big space room, ask for 10th floor... More

I was lucky enough to have been given a newly renovated deluxe room. The room is definitely brighter and nicer. The new washroom is also cleaner. The corridors and lift lobby has also been renovated. Hope they'll complete renovation of all rooms soon.
