the room is too small and no WiFi
Very nice hotel with new face. A lot choice of food.
Everything is good. Only the toilet door cannot be locked.
TV channel should have more variation especially kids channel. Bathroom utility should have more such as cotton bud, comb.
Good hotel in and with mountain view
Nice hotel easy to check in-out all the best
Clean and new block to stay. Located at tower. Best!
A nice stay and friendly receptionist counter.
Comfortable and clean. really recommended place for you to stay!
Genting under renovation. Nothing entertainment for my kids. If guest request best view room or nearest to lift, guest have to pay extra. Online booking will do another registration at the machine or counter before using self check-in machine.

Not worth till the construction is over and the theme park is open again
The place itself is very nice with chill in the air and foggy weather but there is lot of heavy construction going on all over the place. if travelling with kids or family, one should avoid as the theme park is closed and not much fun activity available unless you are interested in trying your luck in casino. There are two casino one close to First World hotel called Sky Casino which is pretty big and another one close to Maxim hotel, comparatively smaller. First World hotel is very basic with a small room and equally smaller bathroom/shower area. The good thing is the rooms are neat and clean. Avoid having breakfast at the Food Factory as they have same menu everyday, instead try Rich Dad cafe just at the entrance, it has good sandwiches, burgers and muffins.

Average hotel with no service
We stayed in this hotel in family holiday. The hotel rooms are very small. The toilet and shower room are so small that one can't turn inside these. The hotel does not provide any amenities. Stay in tower-3 can involve long walk. Since the hotel was a part of travel package can't comment on price. If you are looking for comfort, don't pick this. Make sure to go with very little luggage since space is really very little. Moving I in the room is also a difficulty.

Not worth the name
The hotel is the biggest hotel in the world Rooms are very small with no support not even drinking water is provided in the rooms The infrastructure is very poor we had to wait for more than an hour in a queue for check in formalities The place is not worth staying with most unfriendly staff

Strictly ok
It's very small and cramped room. No space to keep personal belongings. Bathroom has a soap cum shower cum conditioner... seriously ?? All in one ... that's too cheap. Tv has blurred channels Plus.. bed was comfortable Minus.. . Too much to walk if tower is far. Elevator takes ages to come
