We got free rooms at First World but they were the most basic ones. The rooms were also very small. However, it is possible to get interconnecting rooms. If you intend to spend more time in the room other than just to sleep, I'd suggest upgrading to a more premium room.

When I was in genting, I always stay here. This hotel quite big and have strategic location. And the more important is the rate of this hotel very negotiable and relatively cheap. We also can self check in/check out. Unfortunately, there was a renovation near this hotel and very crowded with contractors.

The hotel is quiet big. But the rooms are small and bathrooms are even smaller and the interesting fact they gave two separate beds for couples. Very few channels on TV which does not have a remote either. Not a great view view from the room as well(second tower 14th floor). But there are few activities in the hotel like... More

We went there in the middle of March and stayed at the new wing, tower 2A. The room is colourful and comfortable. However, I prefer a bigger room, this room is too small, not a single chair that i could sit on. The bed is very nice. The TV is ok. I watched few movies. I suggests if we could... More

The room is nice, renovated and I had quiet big room, but very funny that there is no TV remote control. Have to do manually. No staff to attend your needs, you have to go down to reception to do it. But, good things are again the location and they have the check out machine which help me to check... More

The new wing was just too far away from the check-in counter at the main lobby. Directions given were wrong. The counter told us to look for Adidas outlet. There were no retail shops at all except for an ultra expensive bakery near the lifts to the rooms. Sign boards were of no help. The rooms in this new wing... More
