Stayed 2 nights. No wonder its called a gamblers room. Lol. Room was very small, basic aminities. Tv was very small n pathetic. Clean tho. Room service was slow. Took 40+ mins for me to get my room keys. Overall the place need to have a revamp to get a better apppeal..

+ Huge room. Surprisingly.

Negative:
- Huge parking lots. May forget where you park

- Slow check in process

Room Tip: Take world club room. Value for money

do mind the rooms are basic room with limited space. but i like it cause it has a homely feeling and a very very good shower head. the water was fast. and it is cheap if u booked online
first world hotel has the most easy access for you on top of the mountain to the themepark either indoor or outdoor. from the lobby you just have to take 1 storey above you and you will reach the first world shopping/indoor themepark and steps away from outdoor themepark. For gamblers star world casino is situated at first world shopping. everything is just steps away with the cold weather. and lots lots of food you can find there.and happy shopping too.kids enjoying with rides.u have everything complete under the same roof...bowling, karaoke, food, themepark, casino, food, cineplex,shopping etc...and snow too

Room Tip: do not choose rooms with connecting doors...noisy

We stayed two nights. It was so good and enjoyable stay at first world hotel, when we plan from Bangladesh we didn’t check weather, it was so bad weather, we can’t enjoy the outdoor park. But indoor park and all other program was so good. Most thrilling to us to journey to Genting Highland, we reach Genting Highlands on midnight by taxi, its going up and up and up. And on the day we c/out we come down by cable car…

Genting Heights and First World Hotel are inseparable.A huge infrastucture surrounded by fun park in a cool and pleasant climate is simply enchanting. The rooms are good and provide utilities to guests. Anyone visiting Malaysia should visit Genting Highlands and stay in this Hotel. I would also recommend to take the Ropeway over the thick equatorial forest and clouds to reach the highland, a memorable experience.

Room Tip: Hotel is so crowded you have to go by auto allocation of room. Anyway, most of the time outside view...

Our 1 night 2 days holiday in genting highland turned out to be quite a shock when we discovered that our luggage had gone missing, when we wanted to check in at first world hotel. We then realised that out luggage had been stolen in Gohtong when we went to have our lunch there. We spent a good part of the afternoon making police reports first at gohtong and then at genting highlands.
Otherwise, our trip was pretty good and we had a good time in first world hotel.Check-in and check-out at First World Hotel was breeze as we used the e-kiosk.Spent 1 night in a deluxe room- very pleasant and comfortable. Watched the show freeze 2 which was really very enjoyable. The next day was spent at the indoor theme park shopping and playing the bumper car.

We were six people visited the Hotel without prior booking and were made to wait for 3 hours before we could really check in the Hotel. The hotel Check in time is 3.00 PM but while check out time is 12.00 Noon thus they charge you for a day however provide room for only 21 Hrs. Further the process reduces the same by another 2-3 Hrs and effective availability of room is only 18-29 Hrs. They do not have arrangement to meet the requirements of total inflow of customers which makes the process clumsy and hotel at the time of check is chaos.
