Stay here for 2 nights for nursing conference recently..comfy and easy to get food..I like the dinner buffet they provide, food choices from local to international and the price is quite cheap for a buffet like that..but my room no wifi available during my stay and I don't why..the rest is just okay for me..

Oh, I hated it, and I'm sure my skin was itching after sleeping in that bed.... oh yuk!!!!! I'm so glad we only stayed a couple of nights! The only good thing about... More

Budget hotel, so you know how 'bad' the rooms are. Poorly maintained and very narrow space to walk in the rooms and toilets. My kids self entertained with banging the drawers! Grouses aside, the operations of this hotel is top notch for 6000+ rooms (and with a third tower under construction). Housekeeping is prompt, arriving within 15-20 mins after calling.... More

As its name 1st world, I think now there're plenty of better world than the first one. The hotel did no wrong, but old. The weather was nice. There's no hair dryer in the room. The room looked like guest house. If you don't like gambling, there's nothing to do.

Have stayed here with my family, a good hotel with amazing view. but only 1 problem, the bathroom very small. But its worth the price, I can enjoy the view of genting morning from my room. The price room was not expensive, but still worth to pay.
