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,...

We requested for high floored, mountain view room. It's not as big as we expected, but still spacious and clean. Nice for four people stay, no crowded feeling at all. We purposely brought our own spa stuffs for bath tub use, it's been truly relaxing family holiday. Love the coffee machine and complimentary WiFi. Another plus point is hotel location,...

Checked in on 26th december, room was not ready and it was around 4pm. The receptionist was not very attentive and not friendly at all. Got a corner room which is the last room and had to walk quite distance from the lift. But the room is quite nice and quite spacious.

We spend two nights in Genting @ Maxims. Renovated and it’s cosy. The room have a coffee machine & mini-bar. Bed is pretty comfortable; the lazy chair is not comfortable at all. Free wifi. Nice view. Toilet was not well maintained, dirt and stains on the glass walls and bathroom walls. Room services to make-up room were terribly late. Had...

Last time, when I heard about Maxims hotel, I would imagine spacious rooms, and the luxury of it. But later I found out that the room is not that big, although I found the bathroom is big and modern. Another thing I liked about the hotel is they have a capsule coffee machine, which I think is quite luxury. And...

They had renovated the room from my last visit one year ago. The previous premium room comes with a bath tub but not this one now. Complimentary of premium coffee in the room and wifi. Location to casino is very convenience but you need to walk around 15 mins to first world. Water pressure was strong which I like it...

Newly renovated. Looks so much nicer now. Cosy room, good tv channels and comfortable bed. A very good stay here. The minus point is long queue for check in and check out. Still have the long corridor which can be very scary due to the hotel past history of having paranormal activities...

overall the room is good. Not sure about the check in process. Stayed in the standard room with two super single bed and one bed is sufficient for two to sleep comfortably. Facilities are ok. For family that prefer more space rather than luxury set up, i would prefer to have World Club room in First World Hotel.
