Booked 2 rooms. First is a Triple room for 3pax. We noticed the towels in the room are dirty and grey, and we ask for exchange, staff only gave 2. The staff did housekeeping and still, replenish 2 towels only. Towels are really dirty and grey. There are no small towels. Only big bath towels. Toiletries not provided, so remember...

I stayed at First World Hotel with my wife only for two nights even though we had booked the room for 7 nights. The reason for this is simply because nothing was like like was advertised online and the hotel staff refused to do anything about it. The hotel was supposed to have a free WiFi at the lobby but...

Rooms are small, bathroom & toilet are separated, nothing fancy, kettle & tea/coffee and soap/shampoo/body wash 3 in 1 provided. Not meant for business traveler nor those who like peace & quiet. Mostly groups of Chinese there for the casino. Shopping mall is connected, so those who don't gamble have something else to do. Lots of food choices but DO...

First World Hotel was designed around the casino. It was expected that the rooms were not as comfortable as a typical 3-star hotel. My family stayed in Tower 3 Triple Room - 1 Queen & 1 Single Bed. Our room barely has the extra space for our baby stroller and bags. Room WIFI was good enough for YouTube but signal...

I visited First World Hotel a few days ago and am pleasantly surprised to see they further expanded the place so there are more things to do there! I love the new Awana Skyway too, ride was smooth and also exciting when it speeded up and the cold natural breeze was just awesome. It stopped at the Chin Swee Temple...

For short stay is fine. Room average size with no view.Affordable and convenient. Small but cosy. Easy to access to Casino & Shopping complex. The weather is cold and rainy, more foggy. WIFI is not free. Don't expect too much and you will be just fine. You pay for what you get.

I have booked 2 different types of hotel room- standard twin and triple 5. Both these rooms are located at different towers. The first one the room is with the normal bathroom. The later one, the bathroom is tiny and couldn't put on clothes after showering. You need to come out which is not enclosed. Room size is appropriate just...
