I would say that First World Hotel gives every Genting member a good budget to bring their family for a nice trip up Genting without hurting the purse too much. Been there twice with my family, my kids really love the theme park in First World Indoor park, a totally new experience for them. Whereas the room is clean and... More

This hotel is probably one of the busiest hotels I have been to and the rooms were quite small and literally like a cube in shape. We asked for a higher floor with a great view but the view was simply of the constructions of the outdoor theme park. We were also on half board rate and the dinner and... More

A good getaway from the city for 2days1night. Great value for the package. Stayed in standard room Tower 1(request for Tower 2 looks better). Basic standard twin room, clean, tiny cubicle (like cruise ship)separate shower and toilet. Remember to bring toiletries. Hotel provided towels and 2in1 soap dispenser but very watery. Small safe box, 2adaptors with 1usb on the wall.... More

We stayed there for one night in May 2015. First of all the tour operator should not have sent us to Genting knowing that the outdoor rides are CLOSED UNTIL 2016. Pathetic rooms. No air con. Included meals more pathetic. Any food to be bought was a total ripoff. STAY AWAY.

Came about more than 3 years plus ago. Hotel vicinity is clean but not that welcoming front desk at counter. Big lobby with many shopping stores with the casino under same building. Theme park with not much games to play with, seems like many places of theme parks aren't available. Many years ago went there with my family, and the... More

I stayed in this hotel for 5 days in December 2013. The only good thing about this hotel is that is cheap. Rooms gets very cold at night and they dont provide with blankets. There is no air-con. Rooms smell smoking but you get used to it. Usually they will provide you with breakfast and for the money you paying... More

I stayed 2 nights at this hotel in Tower 1 on the 24th floor (highest floor). The lobby is like a huge airport, with many people movement even late into the night. However, once you enter the floor to your room, the busy-ness disappears and you can feel less hurried. The rooms are not big but it's comfortable and clean.... More
