The hotel no doubt is hugely grand...we waited for hours for checkin into the room. The lobby was overcrowded, it looked like an airport waiting area with people waiting for their flight information. So if go on peak season, there are chances of similar scene. Our room was superior double bed, but it was very small. The breakfast had lot of variety. A cheaper option can also be evaluated.

The cheaper rooms are so pathetically small that they look like cabins. The window offers view to next wing.. dats all. But for expensive rooms, view options are better. If you club stay with outdoor theme park, its better, but without any discounts. Winter is best time to go. Hotel lobby, indoor theme park and casino are great.

The only world that I said after entering the hotel was "WOW". It is an amazing hotel with all the facilities. Though it is full all round the year but the ambience, the look, exployees are just awesome. Our room was on the 19th floor and when i opened the windows it was a breath taking view. Every thing was white with fog and when the fog settled it was amazing..

Hats off to all of you who work there!

The hotel is perfect if you intend to spend most of your days in the outdoors/indoors theme parks. The rooms are very tiny. Other than that the service and cleanliness are good.

Hi,

I must tell you about the Hotel First World in Genting,which was awesome and i still cherrish the moments which I spent with my Hubby in Dec 2009. It was around Christmas time and we were out of India for the First time. When we Looked at the Crowd within the totel waiting for Checkin, i had no hopes to get Room before 4hrs. But i was completely surprised by getting the Room within 30mins and was very happy to see the room which was allocated to Us. A Room with all the Facilities made us very happy that we are in a safe place. I must share my Photos withyou to explain what i am talking about. Beautiful Scenary from the window and neatly maintained rooms though there were 7000+ roooms in it, I must say i miss those moments.
Interesting part of the Hotel was that it had both Indoor and Outdoor theme Parks and also shopping mall along with casino. I MUST SAY IT WAS HEAVEN. We stayed there fro 2 days but was very less for us to enjoy. Hubby and me are planning to go surely to the same plave verysoon.
