New and clean but very small

I stayed in the new Tower 2A, had wanted a non-smoking room but was told that that there are no non-smoking room in the tower 2A and thus i have no choice. The cigarette smell is very strong when ever someone smokes in the corridor and i have to open the windows to air the room. This is very irritating. In addition, the room is very small and luggage bags bigger than 24 inch are likely to be very hard to fit in. However, i still like the room as it is very new and clean. The design is quite special and there is a fan at the ceiling which is very cooling.

changed

The last trip to GH was just before the outdoor theme park closed. Alot have changed since & not much to play especially for children. The FWH indoor is now closed up & we do not get to feel the cool air anymore. However we enjoyed the Iluminate show. TQ

Cooling destination and nice room

Had the chance to stay in the new wing of the world club room in first world hotel tower one. Very spacious and nice with 2 queen beds, comes with a rain shower too. However on the second day, I had a room change to another one nearer to the lift due to personal preference. This time I was allocated to tower 2 which is not yet being upgraded. Toilet has a bath tub which is good too :) There is no breakfast lounge as it might be under renovation. Thus we had our complimentary breakfast at the 3rd floor of the hotel but it is an exclusive sectioned area just for world club stayers. Definitely recommended for a world club room if you are staying in first world hotel.

Never come here again

Poor arrangement, dirty room, no freezer or water boiler, no air-con. Extra money have to pay for arrangement of double bed room instead of single bad. No clear instruction to transport arrangement in such a large resort area. Even Staff not sure about the transport. Finally I have to pay MYR300 to the airport just because I follow their instruction to go down the skyway and take the bus which is not exist. I can originally go by a free shuttle to airport in the resort.

Value for Money

It is a budget hotel offering one of the cheapest rooms available in Genting and provide the best convenience. There are cinema, casino, restaurants and shopping all under the same roof. Recently, they have also change the concert/ performance venue at their Convention Center due to major construction work around Genting. Having said that, you may want to think twice going to Genting in the next 3 to 6 months or longer. They have teared down the entire Themepark Hotel and the theme park to build a new one from scratch. So lots of construction sound from 9am onwards. Abit more on the rooms, they are not the best that you can get but pretty decent enough for the budget travellers. It has rooms with views of another room opposite or rooms with a view (of literally nothing but at least u have your privacy), depending on your budget. Overall, its a great option for those that are just looking for a room to spend that a few hours resting and freshening up.

Entertainment tip: In Hotel

I would usually plan for a trip when there is a show so as to make the trip a little more fruitful. The show tickets are usually much cheaper than the regular show tickets in SG and HK. Food are rather costly irregardless where you eat and quality varies. So my favourite dining area is actually at Coffee Terrace at Genting Grand which is about 5 to 10mins walk away. The dinner buffets are at MY64 on weekdays.
