This review may be a bit biased as genting currently is a boring place unless u are into gambling. This is the largest hotel in the world which means u can never have enough staff which means u have to fill your own water as if ur staying in a backpackers hostel. There is construction work going on so its... More

Have been up and down Genting for countless times. I remember my first stay there and it was the standard hotel rooms that you will get. One Queen size bed, or 2 single beds, window, ceiling fan, and of course, a mechanical ventilated toilet/shower room. No aircond for the weather is your air-conditioner! ;D Fun place to be, especially if... More

Although it has Guinness to its credit for being the largest hotel with so n so rooms...its a total waste of its location being a highland where it doesnt show a good view of it being on such an altitude...phew...also rooms are too small and not worthy of being called a 3-star.

If you travel from any part of Malaysia or Singapore, do get the package deal from Travel agent, usually value for money@ bus + room+ sometime breakfast include. Room from Travel agent also bigger@ Superior. Smaller being Standard room. Superior room also come with coffee and tea making facilities.

The outdoor theme park is under construction and will only be completed in 2015/2016. So technically there is nothing to do there unless u want to gamble or shop. Also there is no free Wi-Fi service in this hotel which is ridiculous!

At checkin we were met by a not so helpful receptionist. We had booked a room for four people, 2 adults and 2 children. We were told at checkin that our room want avaliable and that was bad luck, the only rooms avaliable were doubles. We were then told we couldn't get a refund of our deposit. After complaining we...

I visited this hotel for a vacation to zenting. It was an ok property. Some flaws are that there is no inhotel service. You need to carry your own luggage from check in counter to your room. Further check in was very discomfort. Since hotel was big, one needs to take token and then wait for turn to come to... More

First World proudly holds the record for the hotel with the most number of rooms in the WORLD (6000 rooms). Unfortunately, this translates into a pretty crappy experience for guests. The lobby resembles a chaotic government department, with hordes of people roaming about and a bank of ticketed counters for check in. The check in process itself is efficient but... More
