“First World Hotel and Theme park.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

I have been to First World Hotel twice. There were different categories of rooms and breakfast was also good. First World Hotel has its own indoor theme park and other activities along with food court. I think travellers and their children will enjoy to visit there.

Room Tip: Club rooms are recommended

Having read the reviews on trip advisor I was a little skeptical as to how it will pan out, must say it was just fantastic. There is something for everyone... best for shopping, best for kids with Indoor Theme Park right inside the premises and ofcourse the Casino which was hugeeee.

There are also so many dining options with the Pizza Hut serving Veg too, Indian restaurant Spice Garden is located in Highlands Hotel which is conveniently accessible from escalators here.

We stayed for two nights on 3rd and 4th september and chose Superior Deluxe Room (dont go for rooms below this category) which is hardly 1000 rupees extra than the standard rooms so worth upgrading. It was the most spacious room on our trip which included executive room in Grand Seasons in KL and premier room in Holiday Inn in Singapore.

The only put off was no room service and slow porter service on last day but I am sure with the above advantages they are no big concerns.

I think this is the best time to visit there due to off season, we faced no queue while checking in and check out was the simplest I have seen anywhere in world, you just need to insert your card in self check out Kiosks and its done.

With great trepidation, I book First World Hotel. It was unfounded.

The rooms which were supposed to be very small were well sized. Maybe my expectations were anchored too low. The world club rooms were amply sized for my wife and I along with some pieces of luggage.

Stayed on the 28th floor and took the mountain view. Must say I was happy with the same.

The Casino is the main attraction and it is where we spent the maximum amount of time. The Outdoor theme park does have some rides which would take your breath away.

Would recommend the same and would like to come back some day.

Room Tip: Loved the mountain view! Choose a higher floor.

It is too much crowded. The rooms available on the website and the one's booked are totaly opposite. The vegetarian good is kept keeping Jain food in mind. So the one who are fond of onion garlic would not like the taste at all.
