Good location within Gentling Highlands. Starbucks, plus plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Room is spacious. Freeze in room stock with various drinks - free for consumption. No worry about parking - have valet service.

Check in was a bit slow, same goes for check out, even though there were just a few guests. Room comes with dated furniture, however we had a king sized bed, which was just okay. Also has a bath tub in the bathroom. Overall I'm not all that excited staying here. We left one of our belongings behind and only...

Lobby was grand and spacious. Room was not a bad size but the toilet layout leaves one wondering. I found our room too dark and called for someone to change the light bulbs. After a while a man came but he could only speak Malay which was a problem for us. He mumbled something, spoke to someone else, then disappeared...

It is previously known as Highlands Hotel and now it is Maxims. I am having a very high expectation to this hotel but my real experience was disappointed. I am staying there a night in May 2014 and was given an ordinary room. There were not much changes. Room and its amenities are run down. Not worth to spend money...

As a little kid, my parents always brought us to Genting during school holiday, in my memories, Genting was a fun place to be.

It's been years since I last visited Genting, and I don't understand why they called this Maxims now when I remember during those days, Maxims was so high-class to me. This hotel is just, okay. Standard room, standard service, standard cleanliness, perhaps the only thing I still like about this hotel is their lobby. That's all.

Compared to First World, Resort or Theme Park yes Maxims is much better, but this hotel is aged (although they claimed refurbished recently). Cleanliness is acceptable but the smoke smell is extremely strong. Can't complaint much unless you opt for Genting Grand the next round.
