“Not a good value for money.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

If you are driving a car and need a car park, this may not your best choice. The hotel is nice. It is clean, new and spacious. And the garden is nice also. But the sound proof of the room is bad. I can hear someone talking next to our room. But the staffs are friendly. If you are a backpacker who need a gem in KL, this is your place. But if you comes with family and a car, you have better choices.

Cheap, modern, clean and professional. Fantastic location smack right in the heart of KL and a fantastic place for those on a budget. This was my first time staying in a boutique hotel and it won't be my last. A great alternative than paying for an overpriced hotel room. The only downside is that it is located in an alley and those familiar to KL will know that they aren't the cleanest of places.

Location
This hotel is located inside a laneway and is difficult to see from Tengkat Tong Shin. If you are coming by taxi, ask the driver to drop you outside Hotel Alpha Genesis. The laneway is located alongside Hotel Alpha Genesis.
The room
I was disappointed with the ambience of the room. The words ‘retro’ and ‘boutique’ just don’t appeal to me when I have to stare at bare concrete floors and walls, and lino flooring that harks back to the pre-war era. Give me carpeted floors anytime!! The photos from the hotel website are deceptive. The room is of substantial size is and has all the pre-requisites of any decent hotel i.e. writing desk, wash basin, clothes hanger, safe-deposit box, etc.
The bathroom
It has a rain-shower unit in the washroom which provides a good wash and drains into a pebbled drainage enclosure. However, the bathroom shares an opened-roof air-space with your next door neighbour, therefore any hanky-panky during your wash should be avoided if you value privacy. From the washroom, you can also hear constant chatters from the restaurant behind the hotel.
Noise
Being located in the heart of Bukit Bintang, it is surprisingly quiet. Although you can still hear the occasional passing motorbikes and people talking out loud, but it is not intrusive.
Conclusion
Not the best budget accommodation by far.

I was with my family , we only had one room and one extra bed, its a little bit small but we manage it wall rather than have 2 rooms separated. The room is very clean, and the price worth the service they gave. Love the interior in this hotel. Very near to shop place and canteen or restaurant here. Recommended! :)

Room Tip: They have same size room, only 10 rooms they have

I love this hotel. We dont feel regret for choosing this hotel. The rate of the room, the garden landscape, the interior of room, bathroom, the location, the staff, are all fantastic. Actually all the review here is true. Located at the back of Alpha Genesis Hotel, highly recommended.....

We're spending 2 nights and have really enjoyed it. Very cool, contemporary decor, fantastic shower and an incredibly comfortable bed and large flat screen tv. The location is fantastic. Tiny bit noisy at night, but in central KL expected this. Good vibe and would definitely recommend it.
