Checked in at the e-kiosk, specified to the personnel there,that we wanted a non-smoking room with view facing the greenery- was told we could opt for only one, so we took the non-smoking room on tower 2 - 25th floor. Even though our room was a non-smoking room, it smelt of tobacco smoke the moment we walked, we had to... More

Always the first choice when we're on a low budget. Rooms are small, the difference between standard and deluxe is just the size of the washroom, whether the basin is inside or out. LOL Food court downstairs is like a heaven in Genting, where you have limited choice of food. Free coffee inside First World Casino *LOL*

We checked in into this hotel on April 13 for Lionel Richie's concert at Arena of Stars. We wanted to book at Resort Hotel and others but were fully booked. After browsing through all good and bad reviews, we decided to book First World Hotel. Having the experience staying in the Standard Room, we decided to booked a World Club... More

Deluxe Room 210 ringits So far most expensive that we have stayed in and the worst, small room, hard bed, TV that I owned 30 years ago 34 CM, could open the window due to air conditioners outside extremely noisy. My tip, stay somewhere else

Here is so crowded. i hardly found the receptionist since there are many tables on some corners. idk where to check in. but the customer service is very helpful. The room is quite small, no AC, but very clean and well maintained beside dusts on the curtain. I slept very well in this room. very cozy just like my bedroom... More

the hotel has the grandest reception i have ever seen. the rooms are large and spacious, with good sized and clean bathrooms. the location is also amazing, with an in-house casino and a small in-house theme park. you are sure to enjoy your stay at this place and is worth every penny spent

This would be a great place to take small kids or if you like to gamble otherwise it has nothing much to offer. The rooms are small and bland. There are too many people for customer service. Wanted to try the outdoor theme park next door but was raining to much…. oh well, once was enough although the scenery was... More

Staying on this hotel on 5/4/2014. The room are clean and comfortable enough for staying even it's a bit small room. For the price of RM146/night you can't be expecting more than this. The room has quite a big bathroom, 2 bed, a safebox, a mini freezer, an aircond and a 14" LCD TV. Accessible to the indoors theme park... More

FIRST WORLD HOTEL is a nice place to stay we were there for 1 night in March. It is a convenient hotel if you are visiting the Indoor theme park at genting or the casino. Try and get the rooms at the higher floors for a better view of the valley.
