This Hotel is an excellent value for money. It is really worth reserving this hotel specially on off seasons to get the best offer. The international breakfast buffet is up to 10.30 in the morning and you can top up as much as you want.

The location is good and bad!.......If you want to be in the middle of the city within easy reach of just about everything then you are in for a real treat. If on the other hand you want a bit of peace of quiet you are going to be disappointed. Room was small, but clean, showers was good, which is... More

First world has always been my first choice whenever I visit Genting highlands. This is not the case after my visit on 3 may 2014. As usual, I will proceed to get a ticket for my check in. This is around 12.10pm that day. When my number was called, I went to counter 12 for check in. I was attended... More

Very nice hotel. Great management for an extremely large hotel. Helpful staff. We enjoyed our stay very much. I stayed for two nights and it was enough to enjoy the whole theme parks. Taxies are available easily at the door of the hotel.

Well, just a place for resting I would say. Stayed in first world a couple of times and I would not say its very comfortable. The rooms are small, very poor sound proof and room services takes forever. Do not pick the room facing theme park. Will be very noisy in the morning if you don't wake up that early.... More
