when I first visited Kuala Lumpur, this was a splendid little hotel - I have been several times since - I will not be going back. It feels as though it has not been redecorated in the last 12 years since I first visited and the "white" sheets are distintly faded. Such a shame as it used to be a... More

Stayed at the Alpha Genesis for a night. It was in a great location - a few minutes walk to Sungei Wang, BB Plaza and Pavilion. It's great for bar hopping too as it's on Jalan Changkat/Alor. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The rooms are small but clean, with a television.The hot water situation could be improved and made... More

I did some solo travelling to Kuala Lumpur and decided to stay somewhere close to all the actions - Bukit Bintang. Decided to give this 3 star hotel a go as it is very very close to the main drag. The hotel is a bit far to walk to from the Bukit Bintang monoral station if you have a checked-in... More

Pros: The location is great. It is beside Jalan Alor and is very near the Bukit Bintang monorail station. Few blocks away from the shopping district. There are also bars nearby if you want to have some drink at night. The room rate is reasonable. Cons: The room is a little outdated. Not soundproof. You can hear the noise from... More

Overall, my stay at Alpha Hotel was just okay. Staff did not leave a good impression - didn't know provide much advice or suggestions or any sort of help. We were provided with a very thin dirty looking blanket. Staff were also unresponsive, called front desk a few times for certain a requests and they were not followed through. Manager... More

Stayed at this hotel as part of a semi tour organized by a travel agent. To summarize in brief: 1) Ok Location: Just behind Alor Street and nearby junction of Changkat Bukit Bintang with plenty of choices for food. 2) Terrible: - Reception staff rude and have couldn't care less attitude. No eye contact when conversing and this is not... More

My friends and I arrived on the 20th of September 2013... We checked in quite smoothly; although one of our rooms was not ready, we requested for another room.. Staff... More
