Genting Highlands, Malaysia - Day 1 - First World Hotel Tower 3 (Y5 Room), Genting Highlands
It was a last minute decision to join my two sisters and their families for this Genting Highlands's trip, I could not stay the same Resort Hotel as them cause was fully booked. I managed to get a Y5 deluxe room in First World Hotel Tower 3, Y5 (stands for wifi), only rooms in tower 3 has free wifi facilities, while tower 1 and tower 2 of first world hotel does not have wifi facilities. So if you wanted wifi facilities, booked the room with the Y5 indication. First World Hotel with three towers, means a lot of hotel guests, so to avoid long queue in checking, we pay RM5 to check in first via the check in kiosk (machine). The check in time is 3 pm while the check out time is 11 am. Even though we had half an hour till 3 pm, we decided to pay RM5 to check in first cause looking at the huge crowd, need at least 1 and half hour to check in if we did not pay to check in first. On top of that, we also need to pay RM10 per night for tourist tax for the hotel stay. Love the trick eye murals on the walls at the lobby of tower 3, stood infront of the magnifying glass as if the boy looking at me thru the glass and I stood infront of the butterfly and it looked as if I had feelers on top of my head and wings spreading out of my side, sorry no photo of me (privacy haha). The deluxe room comes either with twin or queen but we could not have the option to choose the type of bed (so if need 2 beds guaranteed, get the triple room). The room was quite clean and cozy. The cupboard is open concept (no doors), comes with safe and minibar, no bedroom slippers (need bring own), no toothbrushes or toothpaste(need bring own or easily available from the numerous convenience shops at the lobby), there's an electric flask with 2 cups, 1 big packet of tissue paper and 2 bath towels, shampoo, bath lotion. The sink area is between the toilet and bath, they are all separated. The only negative about this room is that we could not bring clothes to change in the bathroom, need change infront of the bathroom (no privacy especially if stay with friends). They do not provide free bottles of complimentary water, there's a water dispenser with hot and cold water along the corridor of the rooms. Check out is 11 am and easily done by slotting the room keys into the numerous machine at the hotel lobby.
