First World Hotel

First World Hotel is the largest hotel in Genting. It has over 6000 rooms, and was once the world’s largest hotel in terms of number of rooms. It is the most popular hotel for the locals, as they offer cheap affordable rooms, and it is located conveniently near the bus terminal, as well as the cable car station. That being said, the rooms are quite small, and very basic with just a simple bed and small shower and toilet. So don’t set your expectations to high for this hotel.
