The First World Hotel is the "budget" hotel among those at the top of Genting highland. The room can be very small, and the distance to the cable car is far.

Congested rooms , no mineral water no toiletries, no AC , what all to say , Only enjoy the Breakfast n casino particularly if u r interested. Spend less time in room as much as possible so that ur review will be above average stars.

We stayed here for two nights and was very disappointed. The check in process involved waiting for hours in what looked like a government office as you had to take a number and wait your turn!! Secondly, as we had booked four rooms, we were promised that two would have a good view...two rooms overlooked the rooms across from us... More
