First World Hotel
Ranked #6 of 11 Hotels in Genting Highlands
Reviewed May 7, 2013

I can live with tiny rooms. But I expected more than just a tiny room where the windows cannot be opened as you directly face the rooms in the other tower, and where there is no sunlight. Worse, I had the room next to the corridor adjoining both towers. The noise level was intolerable, especially when the cleaners came rattling every single item on their trolleys, or when a group of rowdy guests returned to their rooms at two in the morning. I could even hear footsteps of people moving along the corridor. On the plus side, things were clean. But isn't it sad, that the only positive thing I can say about this hotel is that it was clean? I would have paid more for a better room.

Room Tip: Ask for the highest floors to get a glimpse of sunlight. Upgrade to a better room. Plan on spending...

I will never recommend any one to stay in First World Hotel. The room we stayed is superior deluxe. One cannot walk straight between the wall and the cot. Luggages you have to lift and carry above the bed. It is not of a hotel kind, rather advisable for daily lodging.

Rooms are small, maybe this hotel is not meant for relaxing, just for hitting bed at night after days outing at theme park, check in takes ages, rooms are clean, everything works, it has no AC but no need of that as its in a hill station, our room opened to nothing, just see that join open to beautiful landscapes, buffet breakfast is ok, special section is there for veggies and Indians,staff were not helpful but not rude, there is no room services but every floor has water dispenser

Room Tip: As ice decent hotel

The hotel is good for the location, condition, check in-out kiosk and room cleaness. The cheap price gave me good return. But the staffs seems like really have no idea about how to treat guest. No hospitality at all. When I asked about some information, some staffs answered in angry tone or lazy face. They really dont have passion on their work.
Okay fine. Should i pay for your hospitality? If I must, I will do.

云顶有First World Hotel、Genting Grand、Awana Genting、 Resort Hotel和Theme Park Hotel。如果你要预订云顶的酒店房间,可以通过拨电或者网上预订。拨电预订的话,价钱比起网上稍微高一些。First World Hotel也成为了旅客首选,因为房间的价钱最便宜,有室内购物中心和游乐场。
Standard Room 和Deluxe Room 的差别在设备。Deluxe Room 有保险箱、吹风筒、冰橱和咖啡壶。

With that big building hotel and thousands rooms and that price per night and many people checking in everynight till morning still waiting in the lobby to check in, it doesn't has a wifi??!!

Check in like hell.. i already tired from KLIA and still a long way to Genting by taxi around 2hours, check in have to wait, by the time i got my number called, i showed the front office my booking voucher from travel asia, he asked me to email, i am from jakarta and my phone was off because i don't change my sim card, i told him i can't email unless with wifi... (FYI i used the same way when i checked in at the sunway georgetown, hard rock penang and Gtower, only show the voucher and the front office can check my booking and payment) ..... he said that the hotel doesn't have a wifi and he can't even open the voucher link (he can't open then it means the hotel doesn't have an internet for the staff?).. he told me to go to the starbuck in front of the hotel door and use their free wifi.. after i used the free wifi from that cool starbuck, i emailed, 3 times and failed, then i asked my friend from jakarta to send it to their email address...

Then as i entered my superior deluxe room.. i was sad because i doesn't meet my expectation... very ugly room and old design

I will NOT check in again in this hotel...

The ONLY thing that good in this hotel is the mall, it opens till late
