Was checked in by a receptionist by the name of Carey Tai, friendly and courteous with a smile. Check in was very smooth and fast. However, I realised that there is expired Coke in the minibar fridge. I have written a note for the housekeeping staff. But sadly, either they dont understand English or can't be bothered, the expired Coke...

We stayed in one of the Premier rooms, with a fantastic mountainside view. The bedroom was nicely furnished with bar fridge and nespresso coffee machine. The safe was a doddle to use, no having to preset codes. Ironing board, iron, bathrobes & slippers for guests use . The bathroom was really nice with twin sinks, the toilet has it's own...

A great hotel, which offers free room wi-fi and beautiful mountain view. The room is clean and furnitures are well maintained. The bath room is big with good quality toiletries as compared to First World Hotel and Resort Hotel which I had previously stayed.

As a regular to Genting since I was a kid, I've seen this hotel transform for the better. Most rooms have been tastefully renovated into modern styles, with very comfy beds. There is also a coffee pod machine with free coffee pods! The rooms were perfect! My only slight disappointment was the lobby reception, which was refubished into a modern...

Maxims is really great hotel. Everything here is just perfect . Rooms are amazingly furnished with beautiful view of mountains. Toilets are big and luxuries with branded toiletries. Everything here looks perfect and it meets all standards of 5 stars hotels. Being in most of hotels in Genting Highlands i would say Maxims is definitely the best hotel here.

We got a complimentary night at the Maxims hotel on 24/1 - 25/1/2017. This is our first time staying in this hotel and it was terrible. The carpet didn't not vacuum, clearly you can see hairs and threads on the floor. Also the bathroom, very dusty and even we caught insect like cockroaches. Definitely not a good room for kids...

For the price of the hotel was I rather disappointed over the smaller things that were not right: * The toilet seat was broken. * Plug in the sink was missing. * The seal...

3rd time staying at the Maxims. Check in was a breeze as always ( maybe due non peak hours - 10pm). Staying at the premier room. Bed is super comfy and nice bathroom with a small convenient make up area. Basic amenities are included ( toothbrush, disposable slippers, 4 bottles of water ** they will not provide more upon request,...
