It's pretty far walking distance from the sky train station, we had to walk for about 20 - 30 minutes until we arrived at the hotel's lobby. When we got there, we stood in line to the registration desk for about 5 minutes and got a check in card (we booked the hotel long before we went there from iHoliday - www.rwgenting.com). After that, we went to the check-in kiosk and within less than 5 minutes, we already checked-in. But there was a little problem, though. When we got into our room, apparently they gave us a twin bed room, which I actually booked a double bed room, so we went back to the lobby and had to wait for about 30 minutes to process the room switching.
But anyway, after we got what we wanted, it's really satisfying. The room was big, neat and clean and everything worked just fine. The bed was quite comfortable. The view was great from the window, we can see the cliffs with the fog and everything. The room temperature was nice, quite chilly but not so cold at night. We could take as much water as we want since they had a water dispenser near our room. And I didn't have to go outside the hotel to smoke since they allowed people to smoke in the corridor. Down from the hotel there was a mall and a casino we could visit, so after we got tired of shopping and gambling, we didn't have to walk very far or get a bus or a monorail to go back to our room. The check out process was also as easy as the check in, it only took less than 5 minutes to check out using the check out kiosk.
Love this hotel, definitely gonna come back whenever I come to Genting again.
