“second time around”
Reviewed August 17, 2012

we last stayed two years ago we had a room with a decent view.this time around we had a room at the back of the hotel where all you could see was all the rubbish from the housing apartments thrown onto neighbouring roofs.such a let down we kept the curtains closed for our entire stay.the rooms are quite spacious and clean but lacking maintenance ie plumbing etc.breakfast very ordinary, if you want eggs be prepared to pay and could definately do with a new toaster.reception staff friendly and efficient,great location. with a few issues fixed ie breakfast and room maintenance i would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: get a room at the front of hotel

Who want to pay few euro, then it is the ideal one. But if you are looking for one with big rooms, perfect cleaning and A NORMAL breakfast...this is not for you.
The ugliest surprices are: lack of breakfast and the tragi-comic capacity of discharge of room toilet.

After having some trouble staying in GreenHut Lodge last May, I chose Alpha Genesis Hotel this time, for a little more luxury, instead of those low rate lodges and inns. The room rate is about RM140 including all service charge and tax. However, I had a 25% discount from my Agoda membership reward, which means I just paid less than RM100 a night.

As Alpha Genesis Hotel is directly opposite to Greenhut, one can still enjoy all the advantages around the vicinity, but for the change, having your very own privacy, comfortable sleep, and all amenties you generally find in a regular hotel.

And I do enjoy the live band at BB Plaza every night from 9pm-12midnight, as have been doing that every time I visit KL. Sometimes they have band groups rotation so one can enjoy different songs and singers. But the anchor group is the best as their artistes do perform songs in Chinese, Cantonese, Thai, Spanish, Arabian, to name a few.

Room Tip: A room on the eighth floor looking out the hotel front get a good view of KL Tower as well as the pe...

For what it claims to be, this hotel really fell short. Had an okay location, but was still a good walk to get anywhere, was also difficult to find. Having already checked in, I noticed there were cheaper hotel rooms around, with about the same to offer. By the time they added extra costs including taxes to the price they quoted me it well and truly was. Really average service, I swear the bed had bed bugs, and that there was construction going on next store that was kind of disturbing. Also, ask them what they mean when they say a free breakfast, you will be disappointed as I was.

This is a 3star hotel located in Bukit Bintang itself. I found that it is the cheapest Hotel around. Others cheaper ones can be found there but I would categorised them as Motels. Alpha Genesis is very near food street Jalan Alor. So there is no problem at all getting food be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper or..... supp-break ("supper-breakfast" as there is a 24 hours KFC just near-by.

Room wise is clean. with relatively old beds. The one I stayed recently, was a little of a problem. Firstly, aircon is not controllable (good when you just come back from outside where the weather is humid and hot. Bad when you sleep at night-it tends to get too cold) Secondly, toilet flush is not working too well. Maybe because of the old piping, so... it is difficult to flush your... you know what down the toilet bowl.

Staffs are friendly as always.

As we are outside most of the time, this hotel is highly recommended for those who wants to stay at BB area but dun wanna pay much.

Room Tip: For breakfast, there is a stall selling Nasi Lemak and Lontong. Worth every cents. But be there earl...

I was overall pleased enough with this hotel, I was lucky to get put in a room at the very top level and on a corner, so I had 90 degrees of some pleasant views (skyscrapers and greenery) and than a couple of ugly ones. (slums, waste) The bed was comfortable and the room possibly even more spacious than necessary for one person, was pleased to finally have the opportunity to take a hot bath, after travelling with just cold showers. The room was regularly cleaned, hygienic and tidy, so my experience with the room and sleep quality was near perfect really. The receptionists overall were fairly friendly and helpful too, though I did get a little frustrated since they delayed my check-in time by half an hour. Otherwise they were nice enough to mind my luggage for 2 hours following the checkout time and gave me proper notice. Only complaints would be the breakfast, its fairly ordinary, dull, I just remember one cereal option, fried rice (though fairly sticky) with some wierd random bits of seafood and maybe an omellete or eggs and a couple of other dishes. Juice was very concentrated too. Location is super convenient, right near a hop-on-hop-off bus shuttle (every 30 mins) and a close walk to Bukit Bintang shopping district. (10 mins) I even walked 20 mins to KL tower and maybe another 10 or 15 to Petronas.

Room Tip: Try get a room at the top floor on the corner, you have a beautiful panoramic view of parts of KL an...

Hotel is simple but well furnished. Interior has been renovated even though from the facade it looks like a budget, fuss free hotel. About 5 minutes walk to the main Bukit Bintang area but its up a hill (therefore the name Bukit). A lot of restaurants serving breakfast in the area, so if your package does not include breakfast, just eat out.

Room Tip: Rooms are small so if you are travelling with children, get a bigger room
