We chose First World as it was conveniently located right at the start of the long chain of hotels in Genting. There was a mad rush andserpentine queues for bookings and check-ins when we got to the reception, but thats expected considering there are about 6500 rooms. We had booked a Superior Deluxe room and fortunately didnt have to queue... More

I went there on 10th June 2011 and was given the corner room, which was great as I had a small but great overview of the theme park. However, the room reeked strongly of urine smell and it took 2 calls and 30 minutes of wait before someone came with air freshener spray. That didn't help solve the problem and... More

Not the first time staying in First World Hotel. But this time round we got the corner room and it was much bigger than the previous occasions. Just a basic and almost no-frill hotel. Crowded as usual due to the sheer large number of rooms. Only advantage is its proximity to the mall. Still prefer Resort Hotel, if you ask... More

I must say based on the number of rooms and the quantum of people staying they are doing a good job in all aspects. The hotel is just too big to cover. Since the theme park and casino is accessible from the hotel which makes things easy if you want to keep going to and fro to your room. Always... More
