I don't often say this....but that is disgusting! The colours ruin any architectural integrity the building might have.

I've seen it few years ago. Very ugly colours. Each tower itself is basically 2 slabs, separated by an airwell. And yes, some rooms face this airwell.

Yeah I hate the colours. A plain cream yellow would do just fine for these hotels.

it's kinda different...now looking at the pictures I say "wow, this is...interesting" but I think when I would stand right in front of it, I would like it because it is different. Like to see that thing in reality

The view from the Genting hotels is very nice. I remember seeing KL's skyline below the clouds, and you literally are above the clouds up there.

I see why they needed the colours - it would look as generic and faceless looking as possible if it was just white.

However, a tip: choose an architect who isnt ****** colourblind.


On the other hand, its so bad it's good. I would actually like to go and stay here, in a sick and debased scream-inducing kind of way.

As a Malaysian, I must apologise on behalf of my once proud country, to the world. I'm so sorry.
