Budget hotel, so you know how 'bad' the rooms are. Poorly maintained and very narrow space to walk in the rooms and toilets. My kids self entertained with banging the drawers! Grouses aside, the operations of this hotel is top notch for 6000+ rooms (and with a third tower under construction). Housekeeping is prompt, arriving within 15-20 mins after calling....

As its name 1st world, I think now there're plenty of better world than the first one. The hotel did no wrong, but old. The weather was nice. There's no hair dryer in the room. The room looked like guest house. If you don't like gambling, there's nothing to do.

Have stayed here with my family, a good hotel with amazing view. but only 1 problem, the bathroom very small. But its worth the price, I can enjoy the view of genting morning from my room. The price room was not expensive, but still worth to pay.

Visited here again. This time stayed in a deluxe room with a view of the valley. Drawn away the curtain, the sunlight makes the room brighter. Recent refurbishing change the old CRT tv into an LCD type tv mounted on the wall. As usual, kiosk check-in was very fast. We got our room at 8 am. Room comes with safe...
